    Assault in Croydon

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-39470487 This is not the sort of thing that should be happening in the UK,or anywhere else for that matter. The Police noted an increase in "hate crime" after the referendum result. I wonder if this latest attack in South London on an asylum seeker...

    Brexit: an apology

    During the referendum campaign I was guilty of talking down the benefits of Brexit down. In particular I was highly sceptical of the health advantages that this would bring despite this seemingly being a huge part of the Leave campaign (see picture of leading Government minister in front of a...

    Theresa May

    Blimey she's ruthless. Hunt, Gove, Osbourne, Morgan, Whittingdale, all gone. New posts created for Brexit, including Davis in charge of Brexit (who has always been anti-EU), and the disgraced Liam Fox as new international trade minister. Oh and BoJo, which is very clever for May. In essence...
  4. EU Referendum - VOTED thread

    Add to the poll once you've voted. It's public, but there's an option to say you've voted but would rather not say which way.

    Political censorship and control on facebook?

    Looks as though a post I attempted to put up concerning my right to a voice in the forthcoming referendum has been prevented from being viewed. I got a notice this morning, stating that it had been submitted for approval by an admin; since then, nothing at all. It apears you can swear as...

    The EU Referendum - What are the facts, Where are the facts

    Mrs RHB asked me last night where she could find out what the impact of coming out of Europe or staying in could be found, delivered in a totally unbiased way. I was a bit stuffed for an answer, so this thread may be an opportunity for posters to provide unbiased information as and when they...

    Referendum on Europe date to be announced today

    Breaking news this morning on the Beeb's breakfast prog. Prepare for being bombarded in all directions by propaganda.

    The EU referendum

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-35150356 I see that Michael Heseltine has warned of a Tory "civil war" and that the Tories would be a "laughing stock" if Cameron allowed a free vote for his Cabinet Ministers on this issue. Funny, I seem to remember Harold Wilson doing exactly that last...

    The EU referendum

    Voting in the EU referendum There has been a fair bit of discussion on here recently regarding voting or not dependent on your views on democracy. As the EU and our membership appears to generate strong opinion for and against, I have a simple question: - Would you be in favour of making...
  11. Palestine is a country.

    In the eyes of Sweden. Which in my foolish humble opinion is a bit strange because Sweden as a whole did not make this decision but 10 or 20 politicions did. If they held a referendum then great the majority of Sweden recognises Palestine as a country,no probs,job done but in my blind eyes the...

    http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/aug/01/conservative-voters-ukip-coalition-poll A new poll suggestst that 30% of Tory voters would like to go into coalition with UKIP after the next election. No suprises there then.It won't happen though. With only one or two MP's, (and hopefully...

    The Coalition thread

    Feel free to post your views on the Tory/LibDem coalition here. After all, they're the parties who are actually supposed to be running the country and not the Labour party or UKIP. Suprisingly quiet for domestic news isn't it, (apart from the passports fiasco and the Scottish referendum of...

    MEP Elections

    Coming up soon, and I urge you all to do put aside party politics and do some research on this. I've finished Farage's book, and am looking now to research the claims by the major parties that 'leaving' Europe would severely impact jobs, to ensure I've got a balanced view. Since David Miliband...

    Poor old Sean Penn

    Only 3 people voted against in the Falklands referendum, with a 92% referendum. Falklands is British. :thumbsup:

    PM pledges in-out referendum

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/ My opinion, FWIW? Cameron won't win the 2015 election,therefore there won't be an in-out referendum on the EU.QED. Over to you.

    Scottish Referendum

    So the Jocks will be holding a referendum, at a time of their choosing, to see if they want to stay in the United Kingdom. Surely it would be fair for England to hold its own referendum and decide if we want them to stay. Bring it on, lets get rid of the sweatys, and at the same time ruin any...

    Greek referendum

    EU Vote - In or Out?

    Surprised that this hasn't cropped up today but hey ho. Our betters today will be voting on whether we, the voters who put these clowns into The Houses of Parliment are grown up enough to have a referendum on our continued membership of the European Union. Both Labour and the Tories are putting...
