I see he's not been alowed to call himself a Privy Councillor and can't be co-opted until the next meeting of that body. As such, he has not automatic right to respond in a Parliamentary debate and is not allowed access to certain issues of national security ... presumably including any decision to target-bomb installations in Syria.
This might well suit his purpose, so he can say 'nothing to do with me, guv' if such a strike goes horribly wrong.
A bit of dual standards there. Cameron didn't attend the first one after he was elected leader yet was given Privy Council status, he didn't attend also due to undisclosed reasons. In fact, Cameron didn't attend the first three of these meetings yet no-one cared because, well, it's a farcical piece of rubbish that is only important when someone like Corbyn gets involved.
We're in 2015 yet the Queen can decide who gets to hear state secrets. Someone who is only there because of which birth canal she came from and that she didn't have any brothers. Jeremy Corbyn has far more democratic credibility than her yet he has to suck up to her to get permission to do his role in our democracy.
As discussed much earlier in this thread, Corbyn would probably never pass any sort of vetting, never mind the higher levels, yet if he kisses the Queen's hand then he gets access to some of the most sensitive information our state has. Surely there has to be a better way of saying who gets what access than simply by granting access by turning up to a meeting.
- Wigan were investigating whether they could legally stop fans leaving before the final whistle from next season
- Huddersfield have announced that they're signing a new star young player called Stanley Gene who insists he's only 21.
- A comprehensive international calendar dating to 2025 has been released, in summary, some sides will play other sides but locations, teams and eligibility criteria will be selected by random lottery the week before the fixture is due to be played. Someone, possibly from the hidden and secretive organisation called RLIF, has said that this is how rugby league will finally bring structure and sense to the international calendar.
- Some unnamed sides have started a competition to find out the most injuring move possible on an opponent that won't be penalised by the typical top-end referee. Bonus prizes will be awarded if it can be made as accidental looking as possible.
- Referees will be fitted with mechanised exoskeletons next season to cope with carrying around full 3D cameras, instant-replay monitors, loudspeakers for enhanced standard calls and automatic forward pass detecting laser sensors.
- The laboratories that created Dolly the Sheep have successfully cloned Stevo and Sky have signed a perpetual contract with them ensuring that Stevo will be the front man of rugby league commentary for the next six centuries.
Sometimes I read thread titles on this forum and my heart sinks a bit, I then read them and get very relieved when I read the proper content. For example, a thread about Sell Outs could be any manner of subjects that have caused threads to be locked...
