You mean the "Illiberal Undemocratic" Party? (Not working for me! tongue.gif )
Yes, I'm afraid there's a good chance they will. sad.gif rolleyes.gif


Think you are right. Earnest little faces saying their policies are 'fact' based and if we vote for them, we won't need a referendum because we know exactly what they'll do - stop Brexit and stay in. Of course, they haven't a scoobies about what that actually means, but we can guess:-
If we stay, that's it, we are in for good
If we stay, we'll be welcomed like a naughty boy who says sorry
If we stay, we'll be punished, that is pay full whack, no special discount
If we stay, no protection for City; which will migrate to Frankfurt
If we stay, forget any 'industrial revival' we'll just be assemblers if that
If we stay, we'll be hard pushed to stay out of Euro.
If we stay, we will be bailing out Greece, Italy, Ireland etc.etc.etc.
If we stay, wave by by to our own armed forces.
And the list goes on. If we think that the Corbyn scenario is the worse we have to face, it isn't.

Between a shady looking character in red and a large expanse of H2O comes to mind. The annoying aspect of All of the political parties is their inherent belief that they know best and the electorate is just something to brainwash. The only surety is we will have a chance to express our contempt once again by 2024. rolleyes.gif

Sorry you have lost me somewhere. Don't recollect demeaning the act or advocating a sexist stance, just empathising the media obsession with trivia at the expense of more relevant issues.

The teenage bimbo might disagree.

I'm sure that she will get her chance to do so in the Panorama interview on Monday evening. In the meantime I would agree with SirWilliam that there are actually more important issues to deal with in this country. For example:

"In clip that is circulating online today, filmed in 2011 when Mr Corbyn was a backbench MP, he also claims that the then director general Mark Thompson had 'an agenda'."

"He said: 'I think there is a bias [in the BBC] towards saying that Israel has a democracy in the Middle East, that Israel has a right to exist, Israel has its security concerns.'"

Oh dear.

Maybe so but it was about the comment not the headline.
