Re: The UK as it will look in the future

The U.K. government has an easy response to SNP clamour for another referendum.

2m+ Scots voted to stay in the U.K. in 2014. The SNP received 1.25m votes in the General Election. That difference needs to be a lot smaller before another referendum is seriously considered.

Re: The UK as it will look in the future

Did you miss the bit where I said the SNP can ask for a referendum but there is no onus, moral or otherwise, for the government to give them one. And I also did not say 50% is what is required for a referendum. I said it was the minimum before one should “even be considered”. If you’re going to both...

I do think that young adults that are beginning there working lives, will have to work until there mid 75's before they can draw a state pension.

Re: The UK as it will look in the future

I didn't say there would be. I said that the SNP make a pretty valid argument for another one. - Do you deny that Scotland voted by a larger majority to remain in the EU than the whole of the UK voted to leave. So by definition for the ruling party in Scotland to attempt to remain is a stronger man...

Re: The UK as it will look in the future

The SNP received 45% of the vote in Scotland, and that includes the votes of people who want to remain part of the U.K. There is no mandate for another Scottish independence referendum. Conservative received votes of people who voted to remain in the EU - there is no mandate for a no deal brexit. C...

Re: General Election 2019

The thing is, even if the Tories win, I’ll still be depressed about the number of people who voted for Corbyn.

It’s like when everyone votes for what to eat and a Curry wins, but you can’t enjoy it because you know the second most popular meal was you.

The one option Parliament voted for was the Malthouse Conpromise (effectively May’s deal without the backstop). That’s what Boris is trying to get the EU to change. If he gets that change and then Parliament vote it down again then it will be clear that Parliament will not accept our departure. In t...

Re: Democracy under threat.

Call an election, make it exclusively about Brexit and then he can have a mandate for what he wishes, if the public vote for it. His has a mandate for leaving - it was originally given in 2016 and then re-affirmed in 2017. I'm not sure why you don't think he has a mandate. The ballot paper said "Le...

Johnson’s overplayed his hand on this one. You can’t argue for the sovereignty of parliament and then suspend it because you don’t like what it says. I disagree. They are losing only 4 days of debate time. After three years of titting around, 4 days do no matter. They will also have time to debate ...
