I think it was quite shrewd by Theresa who is showing she is her own person . . .

 

If it is all about Brexit as she claims she is right in trying to get the optimum conditions to maximise her negotiation positions.To have her term coming to an end whilst trying to finalise major once in a life time discussions doesn't make sense to me. Let's not forget she is only carrying out the will of the people whether she agreed with it or not. Doing the best she can for the electorate.

 

Also loved the way wee Nicola has been well and truly given a taste of her own medicine.She is clearly not the only single minded politician.

Not looking to argue here, but can you clarify my points please.

If she left her term in office to run its natural course it would end months after Brexit negotiations required to be finished. So she avoids getting duffed over because the clock is ticking.

A point I have made before is that she originally didn't want to leave, but her job is to do it and so she is getting on with it. We told Nicola in 2014 we wanted to remain in UK and she didn't like it so ignored it

ffs. Corbyn and Sturgeon  are using the language of Tony Benn from 40 or 50 years ago. These words come from the past and in the past they must remain. .He is part of the establishment, along with the all those who consider themselves better educated than those who like me failed the 11 plus but who still managed to gain degree from University.

I wonder where all these wealth creators are in the working population. They are certainly not in the public sector. My first paid employment was at 10 years old as a milk boy, 30 bob a week plus tips for jumping on and off a moving milk float with bottles in hand in all weather. Maybe this is why I failed the 11 plus? Incidentally, the bottle was worth more than the milk it contained. If I broke a bottle I had to keep the neck of the bottle for the dairy to claim a replacement.

Dad was not a great provider so mum accepted my first wage packet, and took the 10 bob note and returned the 1 pound note to me. 10 years old and contributing to the family while older siblings could not. What pride and freedom for a 10 year old to have. I learned a lot about life delivering milk. I did not consider my-self as contributing to the economy, at that time but I was. I earned it and spent it. 'Every little helps' so the Ad says.

The day's of 'The Ragged-Trousered Philanthropist' are long gone, and so should this kind of socialist rhetoric. Socialist's should realise this and stop trying to portray opponents as uncaring bastards. This is not sustainable coming from sentient politicians to equally sentient voters. Someone has got to create the wealth to pay for modern services, and it can't be the Public sector.

I have had short periods of unemployment throughout my life but have been in employment for substantially most of my life. 60 years. I just don't get this narrative from Corbyn about the establishment being against workers. If any branch of workers have gained from the political establishment it is the public sector workers. They have supported the political establishment through the Trade Union Establishment. Dad, who was a committed Trade Unionist, told me workers in the future will abandon Trade Unions and use the legal professions. This is happening. He made more predictions that have become true. Such as... 'Politicians would tax you to breath fresh air if they could think of a way to do it'. This is now happening with the environmental laws we have today.

My parents who never had a proper holiday let alone travel abroad,and helped fight a war, or enjoyed much employment, would be happy to know I and my family have holidayed in the USA and most of the Med.

How can our lives be compared to theirs. Certainly not by the narrative coming from the today's Labour Party. I don't suppose Corbyn and his ilk have had a life comparable to my parents, but you would think from his words that he was laying beside them today in their graves. Now he wants to overthrow the political establishment who have conspired with socialist establishment to keep freedom from progressing.

Well stick around mate because the Tories will probably take you back to a time comparable with your great grandparents era very shortly.

And even my grandparents, only one of whom I met, had a better life than many people living today throughout the world. Everything is relevant. Even if it was possible do you really believe the Tories would want to regress society by 100 years. Get a grip man.

Loony bitch, incapable of putting a sentence together.

Hasn't a clue what she's talking about and she thinks she could help govern the country, how the fuck could reasonable intelligent people vote for this kind of incompetence.

Spot on Chappy, Frau Sturgeon did not expect this. May has no mandate and wants to secure this ASAP.

Have you noticed the SNP reference to 'Hard Brexit' continuously. This is classic smoke and mirrors. 'Hard Brexit' does not exist, it's a matter of perspective.

I think that's exactly what they want. Have you got your cap ready for doffing? I bet you have.

No one was expecting it mainly because Mrs May was adament now is not the time. Seems to me Mrs May doesn't know her arse from her elbow tbh.

As for hard brexit being a matter of perspective? What does that mean? Does any deal as long as we are out of that nasty EU sound good to you?
