A tumultuous reception in dipper land last evening for J C .

The venue was packed to the rafters .

Contrast that with twonk doris who faces a contempt of court charge tomorrow..

If they can find the ditch he will no doubt be occupying .

You mean he can actually get tea down that straw neck?

A rope around it wouldn't go amiss.

A democracy isnt a democracy if people are not allowed to change their minds .

Thats why we have general elections .

In a General Election you are voting for a Government who will govern for five years, if after three years, you decide that the country got it wrong, you cannot say that you want another General Election, because the country didn't know what it was voting for three years earlier

I think the government exercised their option to call an election at a time of their choice in their term of office. Seem to recall they expected an easy win and start a new five year term. Didn’t work out that way hence they turned to DUP to keep them in power.

Maybe they exercised their option by listening to the publics opinion? And it backfired on them good style.

90% of the folk I spoke to ( and before someone throws his size 10's in) in my weeks spent in Tenerife since the referendum voted because of concerns over Immigration. They, like me, neither understand nor concern themselves over tariffs, import duties etc.

Correct, Broady
And now they have realised that leaving the EU will have little or no impact on immigration. They are having second thoughts.

My point is that irrespective of what political persuasion you are your allowed to change your mind from election to election .

A general election is binding unlike the referendum .

If you read the referendum bill it explains that .

Surely you read it ,or possibly not .

who is using the leave vote to get in,the tories are already in power.cameron gave to country the opportunity to announce to the world what it thought about the european union.the people told him by the ballot box and he scarpered because he could not hack the aftermath .corbyn is a rabid eurosceptic, why has the man not come clean on europe.
two things, he leads a party who could not govern britain without brussel's "guidance".
secondly above the countries welfare, the man wants to be prime minister above all else .
he fervently wants to lead us up the utopian marxist path that the once prosperous venezuala has trod,with remarkable results of impoverishing their country.
the blueprint for anarchy.

Have the price of new cars dropped anyway whilst in the EU. Tourism is Spain's third biggest earner, employing the most people and the UK accounts for almost 25% of their visitors. Will that cease? No way and if the prices increase visitors will go somewhere else.

If prices go up people won’t go. They are already losing tourism this year to Turkey and Egypt because of costs so any increase they lose more. That doesn’t make economic sense.

Wrong.
If prices go up some people cant afford to go.

"No way and if the prices increase visitors will go somewhere else."

Are you suggesting other countries wont increase prices?

Broady.
Tourism is down to the tourists. And how much they spend whilst "touring"
I'll keep it simple.

Albert has a bar in Magaluf. He gets lots of good boozers in his gaff. They like a drink good spenders. Shots, shorts, chasers etc. The till is rolling over! And Albert is well pleased as he has changed the till roll paper three times

On the other hand Ronnie has a bar just further up.
His punters just want a glass of Prosecco or a cocktail ( which they may take two hours to drink!) and if there are no free nuts placed on the table, they might treat themselves to a bag of Lays.

That is tourism. That is where I get my facts, not google

Can I have more clarity on the “Your country needs you” slogan? it’s too ambiguous

Why aren’t you doing enough to prevent these air raids?

Does the siren apply to everyone?

There are only male and female toilets in the air raid shelter and I don’t identify as either.

This respirator haversack has a leather strap and I’m a vegan.
