Again I didn’t mention anyone Tory-the story is about Corbyn.The fact is at least 200 IRA gunmen were let off by Blair-200 who blew innocent people away on a regular basis.

Whilst you mention it however can you imagine Corbyn defending the Falklands?We would still be considering the question!How can anyone in the armed forces have any confidence in this anti western pacifist?

Well i.ve been involved since day one and everybody i.ve met voted LEAVE to extricate us from the cesspit that is the EU and to give us the opportunity to make Britain great again without the likes of Makron and Merkel telling us what we can and can't do and I don't know anyone who even thought about Cameron.

Unfortunately when it was planned nobody thought we.d have such a bunch of spineless MP.s who are so scared to take the leap because they're shitting themselves that they.ll get kicked off their gravy train. But I think whats happened to Bole will focus a few Tory MP.s into realising their local party chairman have a lot more control over their future as an MP than Mother Terressa ever can.

So Blair did that we shouldn't prosecute British Soldiers who massacred unarmed British citizens our own soil. I thought the Conservatives were a party of law and order ?

But your digs at Corbyn come from a very obvious place Andrew, whilst you completely overlook/ignore any past mistakes by the side you align yourself with.

Probably not, he's not going to be PM anyways so it isn't something to be concerned about is it, which makes your obsession with skating him all the more strange.

The Tories have made huge mistakes-I have not denied that.I also see a very real risk of Corbyn being elected on the back of the incompetence of the other parties.

As for the Peace Process-we should have adopted the Mandela mantra which attempted to erase all past bad behaviour.Its grossly unfair to let one side off and not the other-and I accept innocent people were killed by both sides.

Can't see it happening to be honest. Even with all of this shit he's still behind in the polls.

We maybe should have, but that was never going to work because in the case of SA the side viewed as the terrorists won, so they had something to gain from clearing any of their own who had committed crimes as well as the other side.

As the law of the land stands, we leave on 29th March.

If they can’t vote on this Deal a third time, then it’s brings the prospect of a ‘No Deal’ back to the table - If, as now looks possible we go to the special EU summit with no change in our postion, it takes just one of the EU twenty seven to say no to an extension and off we toddle...

In the middle ages we lived without most things apart from straw, daub and bread

The bloke at the bus stop who showed the rest of the queue how to put your hand in a litter bin, push up and find the latch that empties the ashtray into your palm, so you can pick out the best dowts, certainly can live without most things the eu offers

Doesn't mean you'd want to though.

He should be allowed to get away with it as his view is different to yours and his vote is counted but ignored.

Why do you think there'll be no lettuces out of season? The supermarkets effectively already own the firms who grow them in Spain. So I can't see a problem other than Mr Tesco seeing it as an opportunity to raise prices.

Arron managed to borrow some more cash of the Russians then ?

Farage was never going to do the walk, yet again hes tried to push his man of the people image and then ran away.

According to Oakshot he's at the EU parliament fulfilling his duties as an MEP, I'm surprised he knows where it is considering how little he's been there for the last 20 years whilst we've been paying him.

My back garden virtually is a bloody allotment, can't do bugger all with it of late mind you but the work done in previous years has been paying dividends and my kids eat freshly picked fruit/veg on a daily basis from it throughout the long harvesting period that I managed from different varieties of the same fruit for example.

It does make me chortle a bit that just because of the fear of Brexit that folk now think that growing your own is the way forward, to be fair it might be a good thing as it is a fun thing to do for a start and it doesn't half attract our feathered friends into your garden.

It looks a bit more messy but I now leave the apple/pear windfalls as I noticed that the hedgehogs were taking them underneath the shed and the hungry birds in the winter were glad of them.

Couple of Thrushes hanging around as well the other day as well - I would guess of the 'Song' variety as they looked smaller, and a pair of Blackbirds building a nest all day eight foot from where I am sitting now, ah the joys of spring.

Bugger - wrong thread :)

You couldn’t make it up.

“No 10 added that the PM shared the public's "frustration" at Parliament's "failure to take a decision".”

Parliament have made a decision. Twice. May’s deal has been comprehensively rejected, or hasn’t she noticed? The thing is Theresa, if you ask Parliament to vote that’s exactly what they’ll do. You might not like the outcome but they’ve made a decision.

Problem is HER decision-making, not Parliament’s.

Well it wasnt a minority government until someone called a snap election in 2017 after promising numerous times that she wouldnt. I agree about sections of a loony opposition but Mrs May has no one to blame for the current predicament but herself and her own party.
