Ensuring the process of law has been followed is not straw clutching, it's a democratic right[in this country].

Funny isn’t it, trying to attack the character all the time because they believe in democracy, where you are trying to abuse it.

Because he feels, in his own expertise, he is a solicitor that Theresa May had broken the law. A former appeals judge, feels the same way and his own Barrister says same. All probably have a law degree, whereas, you don’t, so back to the usual, cannot offer anything with substance, but go down the character assassination discourse.

He may well lose the case, I haven’t said either way if he’s right in what he says, I’m no legal scholar, but I trust his words and that of his legal team over yours, any day.

Re: Brexit

I am waiting in anticipation for the first link to a Brexit tweet from a Love Island contestant.

I'm pretty sure the people on that show - celebrities no less - have some interesting and valuable information about staying/leaving that they could share with the rest of us.

*disclaimer: I don't watch that crap, but the wife and daughter do. They seemingly have no interest in Brexit and are more concerned with whether Primark will stay open and who's recently posted on their facebook page.
Neither of them ever bother voting, not even when Ant & Dec plead with them to do so

I am wondering if my family are unique in this respect, or if it's widespread

No, it's widespread. However people that don't vote will have no one to blame but themselves.

They could make voting easier i.e at the weekend like any normal country, online voting etc. However I have a feeling those in power don't want to increase turnout,...

Gove like Johnson will do whatever they have to do to get their grubby teacherous hands on the levers of power.

We agree on something However I think you'll find all the others, bar maybe Rory Stewart, are promising the impossible...

I see Bozzas campaign aren't letting him on TV on account of how people might remember what a buffoon and idiot he is....

Well, she got past phase 1 and went on to secure a deal with the EU. It's Parliament, not the EU who have failed to sign it off.

She could have done even better and achieved a very good deal, but she caved. We will see if the next PM can do better.

[Admin Insert: Reply to now deleted post-removed]
What deal is that? There is NO ongoing deal on offer from the EU. Unless you count the WA as an underhand, backdoor indefinite deal.



Not sure how continued freedom of movement, submitting to EU rules and the ECJ, no outside trade deals allowed, could be classed as a good deal. The only thing the EU "gave up" was our money, and they're still going to get a huge chunk of it.

Surely voting has to be a carefully considered activity and purposefully done. Not something that is done casually and thought to have no big impact, such as voting for Love Island or X factor etc.
