    Well the DUP will have to go under the bus then, but will that solve anything, they will stir the protestants up, refuse to rejoin Stormont so the troubles will be reignited, but Boris may try it out of desperation and just allow it to happen to get out of his strife now. Typical Tory short term fix yet again.

    If your life depends on drugs and radioactive isotopes from the EU then I do not think that 'it may cost lives' is scaremongering, it is a statement of fact. You may just have to recognise there are real consequences to this populism and self interest.

    Its obvious, if we leave with no deal there is a requirement for border checks which the EU will HAVE to impose to protect their integrity, there will be a border between the EU and Britain, I thought we all understood brexit was about taking back control, so why is it a surprise when the EU say they they have to have control of their borders So that impacts the GFA

    It's all the EU's fault, " they won't give us what we want" even tho we don't know what it is we want, they won't give it to us. Here's ' I didn't know so many trucks used Dover" Raab getting his complaint in early, if you wanted to make sure the EU don't agree a deal this is what you would do.

    Yes, we'll all get used to it, like when your daughter gets her hair dyed pink, except with this it doesn't just wash out. The implications of this will be felt for 10 years and may cost lives, so yeah lets get on with throwing ourselves off the cliff. Every commentator and analyst, including the PM at the time, have clearly said the voters were lied to by the brexit mob, so lets get on with the greatest act of self harm since Germany elected the National Socialists and America elected the Republicans, it'll be fine.

    Is There a Point to Royalty?

    Sounds like we are subjects Quote The monarchy of the United King dom, commonly referred to as the British monarchy, is the constitutional monarchy of the United Kingdom, its dependencies (the Bailiwick of Guernsey, the Bailiwick of Jersey and the Isle of Man) and its overseas territories. The current monarch and head of state is Queen Elizabeth II, who ascended the throne in 1952. Queen of the United Kingdom Royal coats of arms IncumbentElizabeth II since 6 February 1952DetailsStyleHer MajestyHeir apparentCharles, Prince of WalesResidenceSee listAppointerHereditaryWebsitewww.royal.uk The monarch and their immediate family undertake various official, ceremonial, diplomatic and representational duties. As the monarchy is constitutional, the monarch is limited to non-partisan functions such as bestowing honours and appointing the prime minister. The monarch is commander-in-chief of the British Armed Forces. Though the ultimate executive authority over the government is still formally by and through the monarch's royal prerogative, these powers may only be used according to laws enacted in Parliament and, in practice, within the constraints of convention and precedent. In the early 1920s the Balfour Declaration recognised the evolution of the Dominions of the Empire into separate, self-governing countries within a Commonwealth of Nations. After theSecond World War, the vast majority of British colonies and territories became independent, effectively bringing the Empire to an end. George VI and his successor, Elizabeth II, adopted the title Head of the Commonwealth as a symbol of the free association of its independent member states. The United Kingdom and fifteen other independent sovereign states that share the same person as their monarch are called Commonwealth realms. Although the monarch is shared, each country is sovereign and independent of the others, and the monarch has a different, specific, and official national title and style for each realm.

    So you would rather be ruled by someone over who you can exercise no control and have no ability to remove, I don’t like serfdom.

    What I don't get is the govt announces that they are going to allow 458,000 students to compete for top jobs over the next 3-4 years, no checks, no vetting and not a murmur!. Ho, I forget they'll all be competing for middle class jobs, as if ! Well lets see what Cameron has to say in his book, whether he takes some responsibility for his f ups and admits Austerity was a major one of those.

    And yet again, an explanation of the spread of conspiracy theories from extrems on all sides and how they are destroying our democracy. How Farage uses the warped weirdos from the left to push his conspiracy theorie https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/sep/14/to-see-how-extremism-has-taken-root-in-britain-look-at-islington-north Cameron never had a clue as to what he was unleashing, arrogant little toff boy, not a clue.

    How is Trump doing so far?

    And that is why Boris, Trump, Osborne, Corbyn, Cameron, are all committing the same errors now as earlier leadrs have

    What are your pronouns?

    Yep, animals just respond to some kindness and food, none of this tosh about what sex you are choosing to be this week, it's just that nice person keeps on feeding me, keeps me dry and gives me loads of exercise. Everybody wants an individual world specially built for them, no intention of recognising that there are billions out there who are having a tougher time of it than they are, as they say, 'get over yourself'.

    What! Life before emoji's, you are joking, what the time before digitisation when you had to read long articles on sheets and sheets of paper to try and make sense of peoples viewpoints and how that might affect what came out of their mouths. Very illuminating the story Camerons putting out to evade responsibility for this mess. He does not mention the impact of Austerity, dreamt up by him and the other arrogant posh boys in the Tories Osborne to cover up how much of the country's money went to supporting corrupt bankers. He makes no mention of the takeover of the party by the 'far right' and his failure to root them out He seems blithely unaware of how he opened the door for the free marketeers in the party with his refusal to join the EU in confronting the ideology He still refuses to acknowledge the political pressure from UKIP which pushed him into the corner of allowing the far right free rein. Overall a far from edifying sight for the country to see, future historians are not going to be at all kind to him, now was the time for some truths if he wanted to be able to hold his head up over the next few years, but as always for him his mates from business, upper classes and party were more important than even his reputation
