All this turn of momentous events to get Parliament back, and all they are doing is bickering, heckling & point-scoring. What a waste. An attempt to find concensus of a way out of the Brexit mess has yet to be mentioned.

Bercow, meanwhile, has returned in fine form, referring to the Attorney General's maleficious tones. No idea what that means, but it does sound rather splendid. 

Mellifluous - pleasing to the ear.

I was thinking that if Geoffrey Cox did have to resign as a result of all this he could find a lucrative career in voiceover work.

we haven't seen it on here, but on social media its odd? amusing? amazing? predictable? that so many Brexiters who insisted the prorogation was nothing to do with Brexit are now adamant prorogation being declared unlawful is an attempt to stop Brexit. They can't have it both ways!

They taking Boris' lead as he said this very thing in his comments following the ruling therefore all the people who have Union Jacks in their avatar (whether they're in Peterborough or St Petersburg) are going to say the same thing.

We got our first TV with teletext just before the 1988 Olympics. I remember my dad wanting to see the dog results from Wimbledon - I loaded up the greyhound results page to find it was on Belle Vue, the page was something like 1/47. That was a long old wait.

There’s a motion at the Labour conference to abolish the position of deputy leader, thus booting Tom Watson (not a compadre of Jeremy Corbyn) out into the wilderness.

The reason is that the Labour left have woken up to the fact they’re going to get absolutely spit-roasted by the Tories and LibDems at the upcoming election, which will be the end of Saint Jeremy. If Corbyn is forced to step down then the deputy takes over and the left do not want that as they want to be able to install a JC-acolyte as the next leader.

It is truly amazing how little interest the Labour left has in ever getting into power.

The sober reality of Brexit once again showing it’s head as Thomas Cook look like going under, with Brexit being a major factor in it. 9,000 jobs going, 150,000 abroad and set to have a major impact on leisure industry.

Perhaps a little karma for some of those abroad who voted to leave, they can now see what their vote is doing.

Not really sure Brexit can be blamed for this one - the company has £1.7bn of debt. When you’re geared up to the eyeballs like this then any little thing going against you can send you over, and Thomas Cook has Brexit uncertainty, higher fuel and hotel bills and the super Euro heatwave of last year which put Brits off going to the destinations that they make their money from.

Didn't the Lib Dem surge just happen because people faced the reality of voting for a party with an ambiguous Brexit position, and not because Vince Cable was better than Jo Swinson.   Since she has taken over their support has remained at the level it was when she took over.

I don't realloy see why a 2nd referendum is so great, have people not learned anything from having one before?  And I don't see how a 1-1 score really helps.  I also don't think that there isn't much wrong in having a manifesto with a simple Brexit policy.   

Agree its legit fair etc to take this position into a GE and seek a mandate for it. Be interesting to see if it turns out to be a vote winner or loser

It’s fine to take the position, but it’s neither liberal, nor democratic.

But if the Lib Dem’s get voted into power on the basis of the position then it becomes democratic.

Pretty interesting article here which tries to explain why the polls are all over the place at the moment.

http://ukpollingreport.co.uk/blog/archives/10093

Seems a lot of it comes down to people either not remembering, or deliberately misstating, who they voted for at the last election. The polling companies try to correct for this in different ways, hence big difference in the numbers they report.

Just read five pages on the tram back from the pub - I think this is the highlight.

Both sides in NI were killing each other for decades. Why did they stop because of the GFA?

Because the GFA allowed both sides to live their lives as if they'd won. Loyalists had it written down in law that the status of NI would never change unless it was the express wish of the majority of the people. The south changed their constitution to remove their claim on the north. On the other side Republicans could live their everyday lives as if they were living in a united Ireland. Cross the border at will, live on one side and work on the other - they could pretend the border wasn't there.

Whereas no deal Brexit brings the border back and removes one side from the carefully negotiated 'everyone wins' solution.

Former Northern Ireland Secretary tells Crick that troubles in Northern Ireland will return with No Deal Brexit

https://www.lbc.co.uk/radio/presenters/michael-crick-ireland-troubles-no-deal-brexit/


I really don't get this shit.

We have several Irish in our office from both sides of the border. Neither see any reason for this. What actually changes to prompt people to want to fight again, after peace for so long.....bar of course the media and remainers actually courting it........

They already are fighting again - there was violence at Loyalist bonfires last month and two people stabbed at a Republican one on Thursday night.

There are still enough prickly scumbags on both sides to kick it all off again

Have NZ been going full pelt at the Championship or have they been using it as prep for the WC - how much swapping players around and trying things out have they been doing?

Peadophiles - Daily Mail reported 71% support Brexit.

Some people don't realise that you don't have to tell the guy from Gallup everything about yourself when they phone up to do the poll.

Are you trying to call me a peadophile? I’ve screenshotted this, btw.,

Expect it to be take down before the morning.

Oh maaaaaaaate.

You just seem to have very little in the way of comprehension skills.
