    My nephew got the family border to kennel club gold training standard which at the time they thought would be simply unachievable. Luckily there were no fox or other live quarry used as distractions.

    BREXIT - merged threads

    The electorate want our MPs to be like us but when they we don't like it. Not too far amiss from first time round then. It didn't the first time so why now?

    In keeping a sense of proportion I would have thought that the greatest ire should be levelled at the Sinn Fein MPs who have simply never turned up. But then they are doing the job that their voters want of them. Just as Nigel Farage has done the job that his voters want of him. He was probably more effective in getting us out of the EU by campaining in the UK than discussing cabbage regulations in Brussels. Unfortunately he's still probably more effective in guaranteeing what his voters want of him by continuing along the same vein.

    Potentially though I think they're still polling about 8% or 1 in 12 voters.

    We all know it's a very real possibility we won't leave. As I and others say again and again and you still don't seem to take notice of is that David Cameron, architect of the referendum and leader of the remain camp told us a vote to leave was a vote to leave the customs union and the single market. If you wish to be childish, it also didn't say what the future relationship between the UK and the EU would be if we remained in the EU.

    Selection and maintenance of the aim. Anything other than leaving the EU is a distraction. Pretty much all of the media wrote off UKIP saying their job was done. We can see it's far from done.

    Now you know how many of us feel about politicians who won't carry out the results of the referendum.

    They did, just a shame the politicians won't follow through on it. I don't see why it's a good thing that the likes of Mr. Grieve who wish to stop the results of the democratic vote should be lauded. It's all rather ironic given that 2018 being a milestone date for suffrage also sees not only politicians defying democracy but being actively encouraged by the public. Quite astonishing. Definitely no laughing matter.

    I'm not quite sure what your point is. The prospect of a Corbyn government moves another step closer though. No laughing matter in my opinion. Congratulations Mr Grieve.

    It is what we voted for. Cameron made it clear, the lead Brexit camp made it clear, what they were saying was consistent with it. May & co. have recently been talking about satisfying both the 52 and the 48, not what we were told would happen and we all know if the vote were reversed we wouldn't have left a bit to keep the leavers happy. They still hold us in contempt.

    No. A cultural system whereby debate around some issues were suppressed. A political class who were and are largely unrepresentative of the people pre and post referendum. Significant and powerful people who would not accept the result of the referendum. A significant and vocal part of the electorate who would not accept the result of the referendum. UK politicians briefing against the government in Brussels. Two years spent debating the result of the referendum. Two years spent trying to overturn the result of the referendum. Two years weakening our hand and not ever trying to implement the result of the referendum. The same party 'got us into this mess' and I suspect many of the same voters, people who when they were young voted to join the Common Market but now they are older and wiser voted the leave the EU.

    The RSPCA always seem to blame power cables when swan carcasses are found near the Eastie camps.

    Still, 273,000 people who living at the ONS average per household will need 124,000 homes built for them.

    grrclark, I can see where you're coming from. My frustration is the climate and culture that has grown whereby you 'can't' speak out without reprisal or where you don't feel it worth it.
