  1. That would be the country on its knees that has now had ten years of growth and in which there is the lowest overall unemployment since the 1970s and the lowest youth unemployment for yonks?
  2. Problems for political parties never go away and all parties have problems at some point or another. The problems for the Tories are particularly acute at the moment but that does not mean there is not a way forward and out the other side. Hopefully the new leader, whoever they will be, will bring fresh vision - in fact, just vision would help given that May didn't appear to have any - and hopefully they will be less new Labour and more Conservative in that vision. I speak not only of Brexit here but of domestic and general foreign policy also. As a Tory party member and therefore with a vote to cast when the final two are decided, I want to know not only where the candidates stand on Brexit but also what they want to achieve in key domestic areas.
  3. In the UK, the PM is first among equals. We aren't electing a president. We are simply changing the leader. The PM has a degree of autonomy but at the end of the day, as can be witnessed by May's resignation, the PM is simply the leader of the governing party and it is the individual MPs who are chosen by the electorate. That is the case whether Labour is in power or the Tories and the Tories changing leader is no more or less democratic than when Labour did it. In 2010 there was a coalition government. Who decided that? That's right: the LibDems and the Tories. Nobody elected a coalition government. Was that democratic in your book or not? I think it is interesting but unfortunately predictable that the losing sides of the only two referenda we have held in recent times are both clamouring for a second vote.
  4. I can't speak for anyone else but I can confidently state I am not arguing with you to score points. I'm putting forward the view that these days throwing a milkshake at someone could escalate into something horrific. That is not an outlandish view to hold. It isn't even controversial. Sadly. I wish it was because then we would probably be in a pre-social media era when it was much harder for people to jump on bandwagons and then rev up the journey.
  5. Nothing is set in stone because nothing has been passed in Parliament. Except, of course, leaving without a deal. That's the only thing that is set in stone because that is the only thing passed by Parliament, and by a huge majority.
  6. It's what milkshakes could lead to that is the problem and that is what makes the milkshakes important. We live in an age of acid attacks and weird people inspired by tweets and Facebook posts.
  7. The problem definitely has been May and not just in relation to Brexit.
  8. Someone has already cried foul and the Electoral Commission dismissed the cry.
  9. But not all of us do so as we know it is not the most reliable source.
  10. So says the Electoral Commission, which may just be trying to bounce the blame away from themselves.
  11. According to reports on Breakfast this morning, the two bit postal company used by local councils has been blamed for the ex-pats dilemma. I'd never heard of the company and can't remember its name but it's cheaper than Royal Mail and sends the post on jaunts throughout Europe even when those jaunts are not the most direct route. I think the company is based in Holland but I may have misremembered that.
