    Since neither of my brothers have any children,unfortunately,it doesn't look like I'll be anyone's "uncle " in the future ,including yours.

    Btw, in Spanish, the word uncle* (tio) is used as a term of endearment by younger people for older people (like me).I suspect that's not quite the way you intended it.

    (As to Jeremy Corbyn and Labour winning the next G/E we'll just have to wait and see.I notice in today's Observer-won't trouble you with a link-that the two major parties are now 50-50 in the polls).

    But nobody has the right to insult the Russian people - who defeated Nazism and lost more than 25 million people - by comparing our country to Nazi Germany.

    That goes beyond common sense."

    Some highlights of the last 48 hours of the current government.


    Some who were given the right to stay in U.K. in 1971 have been deported in error.


    Jeremy Hunt forgot he bought 7 luxury flats so didn't declare them as an asset.


    Work and Pensions Secretary Esther McVey has described the "rape clause" as an opportunity for victims to get help because they get to talk about their experiences when applying for funds.


    Whilst having to finally discuss sidestepping international law and sidestepping Parliament to make token gesture of bombing Syria whilst still selling arms to the Saudis.

    Funny how you won't say a word about the 1000's of victims raped by muslim gangs. It turns out some of them were as young as 7

    Not sure what's worse the crime itself or the or the attempts to silence debate by Labour and its supporters

    Corbyn quickly melted over the Salisbury 'incident' after the media turned on him. Which is why May was free to do what she wanted over Syria. His total lack of leadership has played right into their hands.

    if you look back you will see that we have discussed it many many times, but other things happen too and as clearly stated these are things that have happened over the last 48 hours

    Mods - could you please create a feature that will seek out and paste my standard reply to Rigsby's standard deflection from criticism of the government? Save a lot of time. Maybe the question and reply could be flagged up as a repeat like they used to do on the BBC so other Zone members know they shouldn't expect anything new.

    I've said this before but rape is a disgusting crime. I've said this before but anyone who knows about a case of rape and doesn't intervene should be prosecuted. I'm 100% sure you recall us having this conversation before.

    It's a subject that you mention constantly. Are you doing that just to shut down other discussions? That's what you seem to be doing - seems like a policy of disruption.


    If you are genuinely concerned, have you done anything about your concerns other than constantly air them on here? What actions have you taken?

    What about Corbyns silence on Syria. Yet again when it really counts, Brexit, mass rape, he is nowhere to be seen. Which is really why you have jumped on the Teresa May thread.

    nothing then, you haven't done anything? Just a method of disrupting debate.

    Jeremy Corbyn has not been silent on Syria.He secured today's emergency debate after accusing the PM of by-passing Parliament.

    "Labour leader Mr Corbyn said the decision to authorise air strikes without Parliament's approval set a precedent for possible, more dangerous action in the future."

    He's right.
    "The British government is free to make a decision about its participation in the World Cup," he said.

    But nobody has the right to insult the Russian people - who defeated Nazism and lost more than 25 million people - by comparing our country to Nazi Germany.

    That goes beyond common sense."

    Sometimes, as PM, you have to make difficult decisions quickly. Isn't that what happened here, and doesn't she have that right, even if it's a not often used one?

    What about addressing the points made in this thread and talking Corbyn in the Corbyn thread?

    Yes,in the event of a nuclear attack on the UK, not otherwise.There have been two recent votes in Parliament to sanction UK military action.Blair in 2003 and Cameron's failed attempt in 2013.

    That's the real reason why May chose not to go through Parliament this time.She was unsure she'd get a majority vote for her futile attack on Syria.

    Obviously Russia got advance notice of the bombing to allow them to move any Russian troops or assets away from this site. The Russians obviously passed this onto Syria as there was few casualties and for all we know, millions were spent on bombing empty buildings. Still, least we're not facing armegeddon.....yet.

    So much to be angry about right now but the one I have bolded has me particularly fuming at the moment. Just an utter **** move.
