U.K. Labour Lords Expect to Defeat May Over Customs Union


Leaving all but in name. Just when I decided to switch to the Brexit camp it's all gone horribly wrong.

What a crying shame

Let them try derailing Brexit.

The house of Lords is unfit for purpose and has been for quite some time.
This could be the issue that finally seals their fate. Abolition long overdue.

Are you telling us that you want to leave the EU and get rid of the Lords as well ? Where will you send Boris? You won't have Brussels, either.

Exactly, precisely, no hiding place, no jobs for the boys, make them all accountable. Non performers sacked or voted out.

I hope that you are taking note of what is happening over here, in Spain.It's one big mess and it is incredible how much corruption there is in the country.

Most of the the autonomic regions, which have local governments, are up to their eyebrows in mierda--- and I'm not one for using these expressions on this site which is why I am writing it in Spanish. It may pass without asterisks--we'll see!

Cataluña, Valencia. Andalucia, Murcia have been building non-existent roads, buildings, airports, now overgrown with weeds, hotels on protected green land. Whatever you can think of, its been done.

The latest is Madrid, where the President has fiddled her Master's degree. She does not have one, it has all been fiddled by the Universtity Rey Juan Carlos. I expect that we shall learn it has all been done with government funds.

So its really a cynical game to neutralise people's votes, not grant them more democratic power.

I don't think that the people, en masse,know what they do want, except to be decently governed. That's not happening in the UK, nor in Spain. What you say, though, applies equally here but with different motives. PP has such a corruption mess on its hands that it doesn't even want to win the next election , I'm sure.

Anyway, this Master's degree crisis has brought on a vote of confidence. Let's see what happens. It might bring the next elections forward a couple of years.

Atilla started this thread David Cameron Says He Doesn't Regret Holding Brexit Vote

Former U.K. Prime Minster David Cameron says he doesn’t regret holding the Brexit vote in 2016, but still wishes the country had voted to remain in the European Union.

In his first major interview since resigning as prime minister after the June 2016 referendum, Cameron said he still thinks he made the right decision to ask the British public if they wanted to stay in the bloc.

“I don’t think you can belong to these organisations and see their powers grow, treaty after treaty, power after power going from Westminster to Brussels, never asking the people if they are happy being governed in that way -- but I haven’t changed my mind about the result of the referendum, I wish the vote had gone another way,” he said in the interview with CNN, which aired Wednesday.

The former prime minister, who has been largely silent since leaving government and resigning as a lawmaker in 2016, is in Washington this week to launch a report about how to help fragile countries become more stable. In the interview, he backed the decision by his successor, Theresa May, to hold military air strikes on Syria without consulting Parliament.

In 2013, he was defeated by Parliament in his effort to do the same and said he “deeply regrets” it. “I think I know why, a lot of people were so unhappy about what had happened in Iraq, and they were so bruised by that,” he said.

Just another silly ass who used to be in charge of our affairs and completely divorced from the country's opinions.
We need some better quality politicians with sensible ideas.
Of course Mrs Poodle needed parliamentary approval. not just Trump's approval.
