    Brexit

    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
  2. 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

    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

    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

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

    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

    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 .

    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
  12. This is interesting https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-50003330
  13. 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.
  14. If a man doesnt want a child then he should use a fucking condom.
  15. Maybe Trump does know what he is doing he does have great and unmatched wisdom
  16. 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
  17. The hearsay argument is flawed
  18. Here is a great video summing up the Impeachment case.
  19. Perhaps a transcript of a call where he is asking a for dirt, or maybe texts between officials stating that aid is linked to an investigation. Just spit-balling here

    What makes it so much worse is that the next time he has a reusable mug, people will just think he is only doing it for the photo, which he will be. I doubt the press would care if he had just used the disposable one. This could be his bacon sandwich moment
  21. Not a parent, but I am an uncle, and I dont know how I would cope if my nieces and nephews had to plan for school shootings. I cant imagine how a parent must feel. All gun violence is an issue but dickheads shooting other dickheads is less of a priority then stopping mass shooting in schools, shopping malls etc
  22. I assume you have an issue with having to register your car with the DMV Nothing will stop all tragic events. N o one with any common sense thinks that it will. You really think your gun will stop the Government if the wanted you dead. In a fight between the the US military and the US civilian population my money would be on the military. They could take you out with a drone any there is nothing you could do to stop them. And yet the US leads the way in mass shootings by quite some margin. Gun right ≠ human rights, all over the world. There any man

    To be fair the clip war really funny, he looked like a kid being told he cant have coffee cause he is not old enough
  24. The Senate hasn't done anything, McConnell wont put the bills to the Senate to be voted on. If the Senate did vote and voted them down, then fine you could say they did their job but to not even given then the chance is wrong. No one person should have that level of power. So because you cant solve all of the issues you dont do any thing at all. That is just a stupid idea. Surly doing something to try and tackle the high levels of mass shootings is worthwhile. No kid should every have to go to school and have a drill for what to do in the event of an active shooter. If
