  1. The Official President Trump thread

    Russia-Trump inquiry: Special Counsel Robert Mueller ends Russia probe https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-47671715
  2. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    So another conspiracy. Bit like gravity then. The map shows a pretty good distribution of the remain type seats. It has also been getting more coverage here and in the BBC and other news outlets than most petitions. You are shite at being a troll.

    https://petitionmap.unboxedconsulting.com/?petition=241584 With 6.6% of constiuants having signed it seems Edinburgh North and Leith is the third most pro this petition constituency in the country. Brighton Pavillion and Bristol West (both very strong Green voting seats and chock full of hipsters ) are the only tow I could see ahead. Comically Islington North is not that far behind. Not sure the MP will be all that in favour of this though.

    That will not give them time for a general election if they vote down Mays deal on Monday). Its a very carefully considered box they have set up. The deal on the table or very clear steps such as either a new referendum, a new general election or something pretty meaty the EU can put a second time box around. "May's deal" is also the EU's deal. They have given her a huge stick to take into parliament with to beat the Brexiters "its me, no deal or no Brexit" but also a small breathing space for parliament to throw its weight behind a second referendum. They have all the cards and seem to be playing a decent enough game with them. 27 countries each with a veto and they have seemingly crafted a stop gap solution to line up their three options for the UK with no real wiggle room for a renegotiation (without something as substantial as a huge change in the UKs negotiating terms).

    No the worst thing would be an improperly constituted EU parliament that could not enact legally enforceable legislation. If the UK is still a member it would have to meet the legal requirements. If they offered us some kind of leave to remain without an European election at best it would be a very grey legal area at worst the parliament would not be legal until the UK left.

    Everything coming out of the EU has said that if the UK is still in when the elections are held they have to participate. Many countries face their own populist movements and the UK and Brexit are not helping a jot.
  8. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    That extension would have to include the UK having EU elections in May.

    All 10 of the squaddies not either deployed or on holiday?
  10. Next Scotland Manager

    Sam Allardyce is the kind of manager who can squeeze results out of mediocre teams. But we cant afford him, the fans would not accept him. Michael ONeill already said no once but we could always offer him some real money. Steve Clarke seems to have a career on the up. Scotland is the last job he should be looking at.
  11. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    Well that was a pile of nothing.
  12. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    Blaming everyone else but herself.
  13. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    I think Ian Blackford, Vince Cable and Carolyn Lucas et al were keen on getting something out the meeting.
  14. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    We are days away from bombing out of the EU with no deal. The SNP, Greens, Lib Dems and PC were all there to discuss what could be done to salvage the situations and Corbyn had a personal fit at the attendence of someone he did not like and flounced out like a petulant school child. If you cannot negotiate with people you do not like, do not get into the grown up side of politics. Stick to marches and waving banners in front of 50 people with SWP printed placards. .
