Yes but centrists find themselves in the same predicament as terfs. You can't spend years loudly proclaiming you're something (shit) and then when the realisation kicks in that the label is toxic, suddenly become offended at your own proclamation. Even if I call someone a fucking centrist, it still doesn't make centrist a slur.
If Labour were in power, their options are:
No deal, no referendum
Negotiate a deal, no referendum
Negotiate a deal, referendum
No deal, referendum
Revoke without referendum
Labour have ruled out the first two options, and the fourth is wildly irresponsible. Noone claims to want the 5th so... What does that leave?
You are probably right, after all why would there be any need to run a whataboutism campaign when the polls weren't reported in any large scale.
Also the fact they still haven't dealt with Williamson.
The process is shit and needs improving but it's a process. Corbyn has actually tried to do that in fairness and improved it but it's such a disaster now and there's no trust it needs to be scrapped. Right now 'zero tolerance' doesn't really carry much weight because people that have been accused go through the various levels of the party until they're kicked out, it's not something someone can just decide (unless you're Alastair Campbell). That's happened to 12 people in the last year (another ~60 odd just quit before it got that far) according to the only numbers they've ever given out. I imagine it's worse than that though.
Ok, thank you.Either they ruled it beyond the scope of the bill, which would make some sense. Or there's concern that they don't have the votes and a defeat on it would be taken as 'MP's OK with proroguation of Parliament.'
Other amendments from Grieve have been selected though, and he's not too concerned apparently.
This and the abortion vote that passed mean that unless a new Northern Ireland Executive is formed by 21st October, UK laws on same-sex marriage and abortion apply to Northern Ireland. So that's a good step.
Yeah, though the article made it sound like they can revoke it if they do re-form
It won't happen. Both parties want this and while Dup may say publically they don't they know it has to come to pass. They can just blame Westminster in forcing these issues through. It just politics.
Secretly? Corbyn has been a Brexiter for 30 years and made no secret of it.According to some, Corbyn is a dirty secret ultra brexiteer so it must be op 4. Fuck responsibility and just do a remain/no deal ref, it's obviously, clearly what he wants!!
But seriously, it's op 3. Will be written as such in the manifesto when the snap election happens.
So DUP either forms an executive which will likely be more pro-devolution and unification, or abortion and same-sex marriage become legal in NI. Lose-Lose for them.
Think he was wrongly thinking g people would care about detail and not just ‘yes we can’ spirit. Plainly obvious boris ya no clue and no viable plan but the idiot audience lapping it up.
Yup. Hunt is winning the debate, but Boris is just standing there spouting off rubbish about optimism with his hands in his pockets. Sadly, that's worked for him so far in life, and will continue to do so.
The number of people who voted against it is terrifying, but I wasn't sure it'd pass (quite legitimately based on the result). So, fortunately it did. The thought of someone unilaterally pushing Britain off a cliff, without a parliamentary majority, or having been elected leader by the general population, well. Yeah. That was a scary thought.
I feel like the UK just got pulled out of a horrible car wreck and we're still waiting to see just how badly injured they are. I've felt like that since 2016.Does it really matter what they say about the UK Ambassador, the US is going to screw us in a trade deal regardless so at least stand up for the UK, you know. Trump might not even be President by the time a deal is done. It's so absurd. Boris is a nightmare, the whole thing is and people are applauding.
No way should he fall on his sword for something he didn't leak.
