Re: Serious Question - who do I vote for?

I reluctantly voted remain, as although I think the EU is a ghastly, incompetent and corrupt organisation, led by a drunkard, I thought Brexit would be a chaotic upheaval and not worth the hassle.

Re: Serious Question - who do I vote for?

The split Remain movement is a problem. I believe that the LibDems have been doing just about everything they can to fix that. Their leader no longer has to be an MP. They effectively invited Gina Miller to become leader. She declined and formed her own obscure party. They invited the Tiggers to coo...

Re: Serious Question - who do I vote for?

You might also consider signing up at https://www.peoples-vote.uk and possibly donating some money. I've done both these things, having never joined any political party in the past, and certainly never having donated money to one. Congratulations on your rationality, by the way. What appealed to yo...

Re: Serious Question - who do I vote for?

You cannot vote out either Junker or Jeremy Heywood. Junker can be replaced by the MEPs you elect. Jeremy Heywood can be replaced by the MPs you elect. Whereas May (or Corbyn) can't even be be replaced by MPs you elect. You can elect (or not) a Tory candidate, but you don't get a say in the choice ...

Re: Serious Question - who do I vote for?

Vote LibDem. A vote for Labour is a vote for Brexit. A vote for Change UK is a vote for a split Remain vote. A vote for the Greens is a wasted vote. Cable is not a convincing leader but he is going. The LibDems are short of talent, but that will change when they win more votes. The LibDems know the...

Re: Serious Question - who do I vote for?

Has the EU suddenly become less of a bully? Have the technocrats become more democratic? Have they shown any indication that the Brussels elites are willing to reform one iota? Can the EU be reformed at all to respond to popular disquiet as evidenced by Brexit? If the answer is no, how then is the ...

Re: Serious Question - who do I vote for?

Because we were told the first referendum would be implemented and attracted a record number of voters. It was not made clear by the government that if the result of the referendum was not to Parliament's liking another one would be held. The reason we have not left is that those people who want to...

Re: Serious Question - who do I vote for?

They have a clear message ... ignore the democratic will of the people. How is having another referendum (a confirmatory one) ignoriong the democratic will of the people. Jacob Rees Mogg said before the referendum (a few years before) that this was a sensible thing to do (to have two referenda). Be...

Re: European Parliamentary Elections

Yes I was thinking of LibDems initially. But someone in other thread (BobbyD??) said something negative about Vince C. and something about a tuition fees debacle. I can't comment on Vince C.'s persona and whether the Electorate care (the opposition re. TM, JC, NF aren't exactly rock stars themselve...

Re: The Labour Party

Hopefully we will find out tomorrow. However I'd guess that Corbyn will try to make sure that they fudge it in someway rather than fully committing to another referendum. Personally I think that fully committing would help Labour enormously if they don't then I'm likely to be looking at voting for ...

Re: The withdrawal agreement from the EU

The referendum has mandated the UK to leave the EU. No, that is not correct. The referendum advised the government to leave the EU. It was not mandatory. We live in representative democracy. MPs are not delegates. MPs are expected to act in the best interests of the country. Thankfully, many of the...

Re: I live in a Brexit area

I live an area where a majority voted Leave too. Nonetheless, there are lots of us who want to stay in the EU, or rejoin if we leave. Of course there will be plenty of unhappy people whatever happens. We do not know what will happen. The only thing of which we can be sure is that whatever happens wi...

Thank you both for that. tsohost looks the least expensive of the three, but it is minefield of first year pricing.
