Those lovable TIGs at it again. How quickly can they disappear into mediocrity? Supporting MayBot in a no-confidence vote wouldn't have anything to do with wanting to retain their seat would it? It's ok, because they will reveal their actual policies after the European elections.
I disagree; they surely knew they were likely to lose their seats sooner or later. Supporting May is a pretty principled stance IMO, its not an easy option; people on all sides will hate it, but if the aim is to stop Brexit (which I understand is now their position) she's the least worst practical choice right now.
As for revealing policies later, I can understand why a purist would object, but this is a unique situation. We don't know for certain these elections are even going to happen; and given past engagement with previous EU elections I think it would be a bit ironic for the UK to get to worked up about this. Let's be honest; if it happens it's a proxy for a 2nd referendum and normal rules aren't going to apply.
A Comedy About A Bank Robbery
Going to see that in Poole this week. Hopefully it will live up to the Play That went Wrong.
Cleaned the interior of my car today. There are few things in life I begrudge more than the time wasted on cleaning cars, but it had reached the "making excuses to my colleagues as to why we can't take my car to the meeting" level of disgusting.Don't you have immigrants that do that sort of thing in Canada?
Have searched the various news channels for pictures of Muslims holding candles outside Notre Dame cathedral in a show of sympathy and solidarity.
Must be looking in the wrong place.....
I can't see any Forest fans either.
Run the c*nts down
And these ?
Are there any Magic Grandpa supporters on here?
I can think of at least two.
Is this a new member? How marvellous.
Must be a Russian bot.
So, Cooper/Letwin passes, but what does it actually mean? Not a great deal in fact. The PM cannot now deliberately use no-deal Brexit as a threat to MPs or to the EU; the only way it can happen is by accident.
And yet there are people going round saying things like
I despair. I know nine tenths of f*ck all about this stuff and can see this is simply not correct, yet we have MP's going round saying stuff like this and presumably believing it.
100% agreed, it is a members club with rules and regulations. One member simply wants to leave the club as its own members have expressed a wish to do so by a majority vote.
Could have left a while back if the ERG had not hijacked a marginal vote for a managed leave to try and get a harder exit than was proposed prior to the referendum.
So, we give the EU our money and they graciously give us some back and some as yet unnamed benefits as they deem fit whilst ruling us.
Why not just leave the club and use our money the way we want to
Because we then don't get the benefits which far exceed the costs.
So we contribute zero to the EU?
We make a payment, get a rebate and get benefits that far exceed the payment.
It's like suggesting you won't buy a season ticket next year, and use the money for a holiday and buy a ticket for every match instead.
So...how much do we give the EU...Nothing overall.
(albeit insignificant given the benefits).
The clever bit was steering the narrative away from this.
The bus logo stated “We send the E.U. £350 million a week.
This bit is the lie. Why is that so hard to comprehend?
