    Brexit

    Dont count on this being the last extension. The EU does not want a no deal Brexit but if that is to happen they will want to make sure that it the UKs choice and not because they would give an extension. If the UK leaves with no deal because of the EU not giving an extension then the EU will get the blame for everything bad that happens after that point and they dont want that
  2. I suspect there is some trolling going on here, or I at least hope that is the case

    So there will be no checks done on these companies to ensure that they are filling in these forms. Of course there are checks

    Brexit

    Another reason to not trust Boris, he has just said in PMQs that there will be no checks between the NI and GB which is the opposite of what the Brexit secretory confirmed yesterday and the opposite of what is actually stated in the deal he has agreed. If he is going to lie about something that was confirm yesterday by his own cabinet why should anyone believe anything he says about Brexit

    A general elections should not and must not be all about Brexit. If if only about the will of the people on Brexit then have a referendum. A general election should be about all issues that affect the country

    Brexit

    NI trading with the rest of the UK is 5 times that of it trade with ROI but there is now a boarder in the Irish Sea that only affects companies on one side, that has a massive affect on the NI economy. When the deal can unite both the Unionist and the Nationalist in NI in saying it is bad then something is wrong. The DUP want to leave the EU but not on a deal that hurts NI. Removing it just allows the Tories to scrap worker rights. How are they traitor, they have a different opinion on the future of the country. The referendum was advisory, Parliament is not bound by the r

    Brexit

    But this deal is not the same, so the impact will not be the same. As for what the Government says about the deal, I dont trust them at all. Hell the Brexit Secretory didnt even know that this deal will make NI firm submit declaration forms in order to sell goods to the rest of the UK, this puts them at a disadvantage when competing with other firms in the UK as they now have an added layer of red tape and expense. It is his job to know what is in the deal and he failed at it on a straight forward question that he should have known about. Also why has the protection of working rig

    If it is mostly the same as before, why has the government not done an impact assessment. There are on 60000 impact assessments on the governments website but none for this deal as there has not been time to do one yet. On the BBC earlier they mentioned a government adviser saying that a bill like this would require 4 weeks for proper scrutiny. Also lets not get started with the number of amendments that will be put forward for this bill, and depending on what passes Boris will need to go back to the EU and ask then to renegotiate the deal which could make it harder to get Parliament to
  9. Didn't Trump promise that he would release them. For that reason alone he should do it. Why say you will if you are not going to. Yet another lie by Trump

    MPs wanting to actually scuritinise the deal is not a bad thing in any way. Time must be given to see what MPs are being asked to vote for. Letwin is actually pro Brexit. He just wants to have a deal. We were told Brexit was about Parliament taking back control, well Parliament has spoken, now Johnson must comply with the law or we may as well shut down Parliament

    Brexit

    The Letwin amendment has passed, so Johnson must but law sent a letter by 11 pm tonight. He is saying he will not negotiate an extension and the BBC is reporting that an unnamed source in the Downing Street says the PM will not ask for an extension. Surely if by 11 pm tonight he has not sent the letter he will have to be prosecuted for breaking the law. In that case he would surely have to resign as PM

    Brexit

    So now Gove and Raab are giving assurances that if we have no trade deal done by the end of 2020 we will leave with no deal. So even voting for this deal means there is a chance of no deal and I suspect that many Tories would be happy for this to happen and may even attempt tp make this happen by ensuring that no trade deal is reach, which would not be hard given that it took 7 years for the EU to get a deal with the US Also Oliver Letwin has an amendment that will ensure that we get an extension even if the deal passes tomorrow. This will ensure that there is suff

    The same lawyers that thought that proroguing parliament was legal

    Brexit

    I am sure that the lawyer has read the whole bill before coming to the conclusion he did.

    Brexit

    I think I will take the word of a lawyer, in this case. Anyway I suspect that there will be a legal challenge next week if the Government does this.

    Brexit

    The Benn act is to ensure that we dont leave on the 31st unless Parliament votes to do so From the article I linked So, in the context of Brexit, where there is now the Benn Act obliging the Prime Minister to seek an extension of the Article 50 period so as to avoid a No Deal Brexit, this principle means: a minister cannot send a side letter to the European Union saying that the UK does not really want an extension and asking EU to reject the application the government cannot use delegated or secondary legislation (or Orders in/of Council) to rob the Benn Act of effect

    Brexit

    Actually the Padfield Principle does not allow ministers to do someone or not do something that frustrates and act of Parliament. Writing the letter and then saying to ignore the letter frustrates the Benn act .
  18. cossieuk

    Brexit

    SO Gove has confirmed that the Government is planning to break the law The Benn Act states that the Government must ask for an extension if a deal or no deal is not agreed by Parliament by 19/10/2019. The Padfield Principle means a minister can do or not do something that would frustrate an act of Parliament https://davidallengreen.com/2019/09/brexit-padfield-and-the-benn-act/ Time to arrest those in charge of the country
  19. This is interesting https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-50003330
  20. This is not always an option for some women as they have adverse reactions to the pill, but where possible I agree women have a role in using contraception. Sadly there are large parts of the US that is against contraception and go out of their way to make it hard for both men and women to get easy access to it.
  21. If a man doesnt want a child then he should use a fucking condom.
  22. Maybe Trump does know what he is doing he does have great and unmatched wisdom
  23. I have never understood the idea of voting for someone just because it pisses other people off. Surely having someone that knows how to do the job is better that someone that is a laughing stock. As for what Biden did or didnt do, investigate him, but lets not pretend that we should ignore what Trump did because someone else may have done the same thing in the past It should also be noted that the investigation in the company the Biden's some worked for focused on a time period before he got the job and he was never under investigation
  24. The hearsay argument is flawed
  25. Here is a great video summing up the Impeachment case.
