Yeah, it should be done on more threads. It could be a bit like throwing a piece of bread into a hen run and stepping back to watch the fun

Go for it lads

Look folks, if you want to start a debate on human rights issues in Sri Lanka please set up a new thread. In fact, I'll set up one for you

Interesting to watch ELPís demeanour in all of that. She was looking on the opposite direction for most of the speech. Clearly feeling as sorry for him as he was for himself

I honestly don't think the EU will allow a hard Brexit to happen. It would really hurt the big European economies and companies.
I think youíre right there.

I see Ogie made a very impassioned speech in the Commons this morning. Would love to have seen it. Politicians can make mistakes, apologise and move on he said. Sounds a bit like self pity to me. I canít remember how forgiving he was of McIlduff. Mind you we should be careful what we wish for. Paisleyís bad, but the potential alternatives - deselection and Arlene elected or he stands and Allister beats him. Doesnít bear thinking about

That Kate Hoey is a particularly nasty piece of work. Canít understand why the Vauxhall Labour people donít ditch her.

Pointy Head Jim Allister will certainly fancy his chances in a scandal/sleeze fuelled By election in his own neck of the woods

I can't understand what the fuss is about. Bring it on I say. I mean if gentlemen like Sir Christopher Chope, Peter Bone and Jacob Rees-Mogg support leave then it must be good news for us.  These guys understand what life is like for those who don't have privilege and will, I'm convinced, given their track record, fight to maintain human rights and workers rights post Brexit. Therefore it's a win win for us ordinary five eighths as far as I can see.

Wife had it done about 8 years ago. She was very short sighted and it cured her completely.
Wife's operation now 13 years old. She's still fine but does use off the shelf glasses for reading. They told her this would happen as she got older, she's 56 now, but apart from that she's 100% and she was very short sighted.

UK politics is almost literally deadlocked. No majority in the Commons for any sort of Brexit. Calls for May to resign or be ousted, but it's likely she'd just about win a no-confidence motion, buying her a year's grace. Brexiteers can be clever and just stall everything until the deadline passes and a no-deal crash out becomes de facto  Voices of reason like Grieve, Soubry and Justine Greening are gaining little traction. A General Election might clear the sultry air around Westminster but it would surely see Corbyn in no. 10 , which would be worse, so there's no appetite for it. Sinn Fein are too spineless to take their seats and upset the status quo, hopefully this is rammed home to the electorate here by all parties at our next election. Big business in Britain really needs to become more strident and show the politicians the folly of their ways.

Jacob Rees Mogg looks like Teacher from the Bash Street Kids.






I think I likened him to Cuthberg Cringleworthy, the Bash Street teachers pet, about 12months ago

Corbyn has always been anti-eu. He's a man of principle, he won't lead any charge against a reversal of the referendum just because it may be politically advantageous to him
I realise that but it's a lazy approach in my opinion. He knows well that the electorate was ignorant and mis informed and voted leave for all the wrong reasons.

Best chance is if may is ousted. Far from beyond the realms of possibility. Then it would depend who got in as they could be worse. Big chance of no deal currently.
If she goes she'll be replaced by a pro Brexit looney and that'll be worse. At least she supported Remain and is trying to get as soft a Brexit as possible. Corbyn's behaviour is pretty shocking in my opinion. He should be Remain through and through as this is the only way to protect workers rights and human rights. However his lukewarm approach is making it easier for the Brexiteers. Rees Mogg mind you is a particularly abhorrent piece of work. Sooner he gets his toffee nose comeuppance the better. Him and his feckin nanny
