Why would this country vote for a Communist? Have you seen where Labour is currently in the opinion polls and do you not appreciate that although you may not like him, Boris is one of our more popular politicians? Most of the country trust him to get us out of the EU, which the majority of voters appear to be crying out for.

Sorry to disappoint.

Er, no! I have always had my doubts, and I certainly did say that she would get us a deal, which she did (against the expectations of most remainers).

However, why she put forward the idea of a backstop with no handbrake to get us out, I will never know. My presumption is that she accepted the stated position of the EU that it would only be applied if the worst came to the worst and even then it would be temporary.

Shame they didn't carry that through into the document.

Re: Leadership who is the next PM?

A new poll commissioned by the Channel 4 Dispatches programme reveals (and reinforces) the unrepresentative views of the people choosing our next PM at this most critical time:

https://news.sky.com/story/tory-memb...gests-11759023

Quote:
Conservative Party members are in favour of the death penalty, think Islam poses a threat to the British way of life and believe Donald Trump would be a good prime minister, according to a poll.

A survey for YouGov found that 58% of those polled think the death penalty should be allowed for certain crimes, compared with 37% who are opposed to capital punishment.

More than half of those surveyed (56%) thought Islam was "generally a threat" to the British way of life, while 22% thought it was "generally compatible".

Asked about the US president, 54% of respondents said they believed he would make a good prime minister, compared with 43% who said he would be a bad one.

The poll, carried out for a Channel 4 Dispatches programme, also found:

Two-fifths thought having people from a variety of different backgrounds in Britain has damaged society;

Just under half (49%) said schools should not have to teach children about LGBT relationships;

A total of 51% thought most people could get a job if they tried enough;

Some 46% think fears about climate change have been exaggerated, while 45% believe warnings from scientists about the scale of the problem.
The lesser issue is that a lot of these people seem barking mad. The bigger one is that the two candidates are pandering to the whims of this group. Now this raises an interesting question: are they just telling these people what they want to hear just to get selected and then they will "forget" they ever promised anything (my prediction) or will they actually try and enact some or all of their promises?

I'm no fan of the death penalty.

Re: Leadership who is the next PM?

The Tories are just following due procedure just as they and Labour have done in the past.

All this bleating about the 160,000 having the privilege and being all sorts of bad people is total humbug.

You never addressed my points on honouring promises? You also are out of touch with your "colleagues" it seems. If you can provide any contrary evidence to gainsay these findings, it would be most welcome.

I do find it surprising how a Party with such heritage could reduce itself to a membership base with these views. Then again, nothing is a surprise today ..
