      I am hating, loathing, despising the gloaty attitude of parliamentarians today. They've hacked apart two governments in a row just trying to do what the public asked them to.

      Put them to the damned wall.

        The EU is now totally in control of the UK.....thanks to self interested MP’s
        The deadline will be repeatedly kicked down the line until we all accept the EU’s terms, forget about Brexit or get fed up with it!

        What a crying shame! I think we would have done pretty well as an independent country

        A general election will produce lots of minority party MP’s and even less agreement than now. Heaven help us if the Lib Dem’s get some power again.....what an opportunistic, impracticable bunch they are

        However, perhaps most folks will see that Boris is the only one determined to settle the Brexit issue once and for all and will give him the support he needs to do that :noidea:

          Well watching the 'goings on' in Parliament last night I am totally baffled.

          From where I'm sat Boris is right...Jeremy Corbyn is and I quote "a great big girls blouse" and "Karakus".

          I've said it before and I'll keep saying it..JC is nothing but an Agitator and annoys the hell out of me.:mad: just sayin'..

              I truly give up with this lot. I will vote one more time, and will vote strategically in the hope that this current crop of politicians get their backsides well and truly kicked. Thereafter, I can see no point at all in voting, as it is crystal clear that we live in a dictatorship.

                Oh the wondrous workings of a Labour MP's mind ............

                Emily Thornberry on Question Time tonight .....

                Asked if Labour won the next general election, if as Foreign Secretary she would broker a deal with the EU ( if she was offered the chance ) she answered " yes " then if a second referendum was held if she would campaign for leave or remain she answered " remain " .....

                She then wondered why everyone was laughing and jeering at her when it was pointed out to her that she was actually going to campaign and vote against HER own deal.

                I was going to say that I feel sorry for the people of Islington South but then I thought better of it. Let's face it they knew what they were getting when they re-elected her in 2017.

                  I am not racist or political in any way. But I know a lady who is. Dianne Abbot. How could any party have her as a selfconfessed racist and a shadow Home Secretary??????????????????

                      I will always vote but it is such a horrible time to have to choose, they're all just awful. A case of picking the least awful of an awful group. I'd have pause for thought if they replaced JC in Labour, I think Jo Swinson is way out of her depth and not enough experience to be the leader of the country and frankly Boris is really the best option at this point for the blues. I guess we'll end up with another coalition with a tiny majority and get nowhere once more.

                      As my old engineering instructor used to tell me - oh what joy, oh what fun [utter deadpan].

                            Hi @Loofah , can I ask you..... Has your MP done any good for your local area ? If so then that is your answer.

                            My MP has totally turned our town around and I would still vote for him whatever party he stood for.
