Re: Citizenship

The only thing I would like to add to this thread is that I find it amusing that this lady was 'a girl of 15' easily led etc etc and yet we have political parties in this country who say the voting age should be lowered to 16. A lot of maturity must be gained in that very important 12 month period.

Re: Independence Day

Colin Yes I am a Lleaver - not yet a crime? Reticence/fear of incomers? No, a reluctance to sustain hundreds of thousands of migrants ( and their descendants) for ever and a day out of our hard earned benefits. Unwilling to see the strain on 'OUR' NHS, the roads, public transport, prisons etc etc ju...

Re: Independence Day

I could never take seriously anything said by M Juncker. Let us not forget that in a 'previous life' he was the Prime Minister of Luxembourg, a country with a population of about 600,000. He has experienced the same level of 'control' as a mayor of an English medium sized city. Added to that the fac...

Re: Independence Day

Parliament WILL accept the will of the people as voiced through the referendum result. It might take (even more) time and it might get 'messy' but this result cannot be overturned.

Re: Independence Day

Short of any underhand fiddling (which your MP Ms Rudd is at the moment trying to get going) then we do leave on March 31st 2019. We will leave on WTO terms - 'no deal' is a term invented by Remainers and their fellow-travellers. These terms will mean that there will be a 10% tariff on goods, both i...

Re: Independence Day

ColinL the logic of what you are saying is that we cannot leave the EU unless everyone wants to? Now you have touched on the 'original' vote that was of course to join a rather loose trade agreement and we were told at the time that it would never become politicised - lying from the outset. It has a...

Re: Independence Day

The question on the EU referendum was VERY clear, asking us to make a decision as to whether we wanted to Remain in or Leave the EU. We decided to Leave. On a turnout of 72.21% Leave gained 51.89% of the vote to Remain's 48.11%. Barely a majority you say. MPs get elected by 1 vote and merrily go int...

Re: Independence Day

No time to answer at the moment Richard - will do so tomorrow. Once again I find myself in disagreement on most of the things you say.

Re: Independence Day

The constituencies for the EU referendum did not match up precisely with normal constituencies so it is difficult to be absolutely clear, but I too have seen figures suggesting that IF this had been a referendum it would have been 400 seats for Leave ergo a landslide. A lot of the problem has been h...

Re: Locally available goods of any description

it needs to be said that some charity shops (or is that ((charity)) shops ? ) can claim up to 80% relief on business rates. That will be fair old whack
