Cancelling Article 50

I'm with Nordic Knight on this. I live in a city that has had a Labour deathgrip for decades. Where's the Socialist paradise they promise? They've had the opportunity to deliver it, where is it? Always at the bottom of the good things list,

Tom Watson

Update.Corbyn has intervened and overruled the 'abolition of the deputy leader's post' motion. However he has said the deputy leader's position is to be looked at and reviewed. In other words clip his wings and make it a totally titular position in

So many experts.

Law or no law

They are throwaway comments which most of us will hear (not the deaf buggers) many hundreds of time each year. They are not intended to be offensive and no sane person would be offended by them Oh Mikey1973 you mentioned deaf peopl

Laugh of the day

Bozo accosted about using the NHS as a press opportunity says, 'There are no press here' - they were feet away and he was being filmed by a camera crew! A truly Trumpian moment. Yeah, accosted by a planted labour activist who used

Yellow Hammer

I have a potential solution - instead of a UK-wide referendum, propose a referendum to the people of Northern Ireland on whether they wish to have this backstop arrangement (specifically the one proposed in 2017 that was NI only). After al

Cut and pasted from an American article, which contradicts itself in almost every paragraph.

Farewell To The Dwarf

I was replying to marits post where he compared Sein Fein MP's with Nigel Farage's followers. The Brexit party have no MPs so cannot be compared. "She" hunni not he. Just my little foible. I accept if I identify as "she" Vaggio will star

Remains to be seen......

Who knows about the future? At the moment it seems like civil unrest from the far right who have adopted Bozo as their pin-up. Thugs chanting 'we love you, Boris' and Remainers are to blame? Pull the other one :-) What about the yobs wail

Cummings

In industry, it would be called a "hero forecast", it can't possibly be criticised as it assumes the worst case in every aspect. So very easy to prepare, and absolutely bloody worthless, to the point that in the real world, if you prepare such a

Twisted politics

Blair certainly lost all the money and decided to get out whilst the going was good, leaving Gordon to take the blame! Mrs T was stabbed in the back by those who wanted her power.

Question Time last night

For the record there are, as Mr C says, about 15 million Jews worldwide. However only about 6 million live in Israel and 5.5 million in the USA. Most, if not all, European countries have a small Jewish community. France has the largest.

Would you rather break the law or break your word?

getting back to the topic I would never , ever break my word or a handshake, it is what defines me my word is my bond, and its final. I can honestly say I would go to prison rather than break my word Back on subject? T

It could be worse.

I'm still of the opinion that most people are sick to death of the whole sordid Brexit business irrespective of the way they voted in the referendum. Plus there are far more important issues. Brexit could be solved in a very short time

National Flags

I think the St Patrick's Cross was included when the whole of Ireland was officially united with the rest of Great Britain 1801 I think. From what I remember of Northern Ireland the Union Flag was mostly flown in Loyalist areas. Sometimes

Parliamentary Democracy

The Italians, renown for having had more changes of government than almost any country in the world, were seriously thinking of adopting our rather outdated FPTP electoral system at one stage, in order to bring some political stability. They've had

Chasm between remain and leave

The Brexiteer story is that the EU has been needlessly uncooperative with the UK in these negotiations. Let me remind you all, firstly, that Theresa May said 95 percent of the WA deal was done back in October 2018. That much went relative

Pissed off people !

I doubt that we'll be asked, and if we were the terms would be so onerous that the Government of the day would never agree. I think we're growing our own version of the 4th Reich; the UK isn't a comfortable place any more - just read the newspape

It's all the fault of Brexit

Good point - at the moment Council Tax increases are capped at a low percentage. If the Government chooses to remove this cap and tell councils that they can do whatever they want without a local Referendum taking place, then the increase

Well, we have a family imposed upon us ! I am just saying democracy can be a good thing. I don't believe in presidents, simply not needed.

More of the same......?

I'm not a Boris supporter but I do think what he's done has been to up the ante and force people to put up or shut up! He has started to show the EU that he is serious about no-deal and put some pressure on them. I do believe that they wholehea

Caretaker PM?

Tend to agree with Mikey1973. I'm of the opinion [and note this is my opinion] that there are 5 to 10% ardent, blinkered Brexiteers who want a Fareagean xenophobic get-out-at-all-cost type of Brexit; and there are another 5 to 10% ardent Remainers
