It seems so and I hope so, but the British referendum was a surprise finish---at least, for me. I'm keeping my big mouth shut until the votes are counted!

Pat494 started this thread If La Penne wins the French election it will be the end of the Eurozone and maybe the whole EU project. This will affect the UK and of course the EU.

I put it down to people being tired of the same ole bull from the long established parties. They want youth. They want popularist change.
A clever ploy by Emmanuelle (?) cherry picking the best from Left and Right.
He should easily beat the Fascists even after their makeover.

Pat494 started this thread I guess it is too late for a UK populist to drain the Westminster swamp.
Maybe next time.

Pat494 started this thread Labour really can't be serious about re-introducing Nationalisation for the railways can they ? It's been tried and was a complete failure.
They can't seem to understand this country needs to be world competitive to survive. Not much point in regurgitating failed policies. Everything has to be paid for.

I don't know much about what goes on in the UK, anymore, I have to admit, but privatised railways do not seem to be working well.

EU has been tried and is deemed to have been a failure by the Brexiters. Why stop?

Pat494 started this thread I think UKIP was the British populist party but having achieved their aim of Brexit has run out of good ideas.
Labour is trying to dredge up failed policies from the 1960s and the Tories are much the same ole waste money on nuclear submarines etc. and unquestioning support for US policies abroad ( they just waste money in the ME ).
What about the Liberals I hear you say ? A spent force it seems trying to Remain when the last big issue has been decided.

It's going to be a boring election.
