    The truth is the establishment in the background have it all under control as Brexit hasn't and will not happen.

    Why should I know? Under your electoral system all it would take was one person to get 1 more vote than the others in enough constituencies to get a majority in parliament.

    48% after all didn't want Brexit and the 52% pro Brexit are divided as to what they do want. A Brexit with a deal or one without.

    The choice between Boris or Corbyn almost makes Sophie's Choice seem easy. I don't envy those against Brexit having to make that choice.

    As said, not enough time.

    So what have the Liberal Democrats been doing since before the referendum?

    The Prez has just interfered in the UK election by rubbishing Corbyn. That should boost his poll ratings by about 10%.

    Regards Tyrone.

    I laughed my azz off listening to it.
    There was so much bollocks about Russian interference on the Brexit vote, and then in steps The Don and says out loud there will be a Farage and Boris tie up which will be great for the UK.

    Read post 5881 again. By "new" I did in fact mean new. To use American jargon there must be some "middle" right wingers and some "middle" left wingers that could get together (if there had been more time) if for no other reason than to prevent Boris or Corbyn ever being in charge. If (and this is all theoretical) they got enough votes then maybe the 52% to 48% vote would be changed. Major decisions so close to 50 50 always give problems.

    I wonder how many that weren't in favour of Brexit chose not to vote because they didn't think it necessary? Cameron sure as hell got it wrong as did Clinton.

    Trump thinks outside the box. Of course his box has padded walls.

    The traitors conspired to stop no deal, but what they want is no Brexit, so they might now vote against the Boris deal.
    Except on Saturday the HoC will have a choice between no-deal and the Boris deal!

    There's only been 55 so far that have stepped down, but that's because they all realise they're dead in the water at the upcoming election - they know they will not be re-elected so they're getting out now.
    AND none of them wanted to go door knocking

    "interfered" - wtf does that mean? Is no public official allowed to talk about foreign domestic affairs? Please tell me you're joking or this was tongue-in-cheek.

    Do you think the male MP's have been subject to a fraction of the abuse the female MP's have been subjected too.

    I would think just about every female MP has had a letter/e-mail/voicemail that starts out with "you dirty b**** I'm going to drag you out in the street and rape in front of your family and friends"

    That's likely to have a greater pyscological effect than anything you can say to a male MP. Which if you believe statistics 1in4 female MP's have already been raped and therefore the effect is much greater.

    I've known a couple like that. As they age they realise that they don't have any real friends. I'm sure he's the same IRL as he is in here but rarely gets out now if ever.

    He came on a nation wide radio station phone in run by his pal Farage bigging up one candidate and rubbishing the other one. What would you call it ? Luckily nobody takes a blind bit of notice of what Trump says over here. In fact he's probably done Corbyn a favour.

    Regards Tyrone.
