Re: Amber Rudd

My brother is a local resident and has written to her about two or three matters, and although she addresses him as Dear Peter, (a little too familiar but seemingly friendly) then proceeds to to give the most managerial PR letter full of 1990/2000s buzz words, that sound good but when analysed say a...

Re: Forbidden Fruit, 119 Queens Road

Fighting? Was it handbags at dawn! :D If considered to be non-pc, some gay people now use words that were considered anti gay such as queer or battyman & similar words to challenge the negative use, thus neutralising the negativity. Strangely enough, the CHE (campaign for homosexual equality) ar...

Re: The EU Referendum

I am not sneering or hating at anyone middle, upper class, working class or not.Successful and achievers It was young Nigel himself who was insulting the MEPs, when he suggested they had not had proper jobs. You will see that I used proper in quotation marks, rather than on its own. It was he who wa...

Re: The EU Referendum

Labour in the Commons and Lords have been in the forefront of opposition to the issues you raise and it is the charities, educationalists, health workers who lobby them to work on amendments to legislation or negative motions as happened with the budget.

Re: The EU Referendum

It is precisely that voters have been convinced that the domestic political problems are partly or wholly down to us "being told what to do by Brussels' or 'our money being spent without our control' that has resulted in voters thinking that all the problems can be solved by leaving the EU. I a...

Re: The EU Referendum

Now those wanting a directly provided NHS will find it replaced by a private insurance scheme as proposed by Gove in his 2005 book. Those parents who want a local authority school will find that the failing academy system will be imposed on them. IDS will pursue even more aggresive welfare benefit '...

Re: The EU Referendum

Andrea Leadsom uses 'take back control, vote leave' in almost every contribution she makes. She is a junior minister to your MP Amber Rudd

In addition Sadiq Khan and Ruth Davidson have several times quoted lists of things rather than providing some detailed argument

Re: The EU Referendum

I have not lost control of my country. I elect my MP; the majority party forms the government on our first past the post system. The British Prime Minister by virtue of the post is therefore one of the Council of Ministers. The elected government chooses the commissioners that it wishes to have in t...
