New Years Resolutions

Though there is an overlap between cynicism and skepticism, and I can provide no logical reason why people should make resolutions on New Years Eve, it is still the case that many people do. It is possible that in joining together in choosing and announcing these resolutions we might find them more ...

Re: Stupid ******

Frankly I don't care if he was calling Theresa May stupid or the whole party. They've all done something incredibly stupid and he supported them doing it. It's done, it's stupid. And that's far more important than whether there was a trace of misogyny in his hypocrisy.

OK - but that's not an error from her point of view then - although it might be what we want.

Allowing the bill to be defeated would have led to Nodexit or Ref 2 - neither of which she wants.
But she doesn't get to change the outcome, only the timing.

Re: A second referendum - or a general election?

Many are pointing out to Jacob Grease Smug the incongruity in claiming that 63% support is insufficient whilst also stating that 52% is the incontrovertible will of the people.

Re: Brexit consequences

Could have done with a prolonged Tory leadership contest where they all set out their plans for Europe and used that to get a mandate from the party instead of May become PM by default with no greater policy than "Brexit means Brexit" for nearly 2 years.

Re: A second referendum - or a general election?

The interesting thing is that we have three options where our politics is evolved to handle binary choices. If an MP shared my preference of no brexit over the withdrawal agreement over no deal and was presented with just the option to accept or reject the withdrawal agreement should they approve it...
