  1. If only there was someone Geo that is capable of delivering British success in Europe similar to 1704. Sadly we're out of stock of Churchills'.
  2. Before the Referendum I took the view the EU - with the not so subtle guiding hand of Germany - was behaving like economic Imperialists using monies paid in by its members. Since the Referendum it seems to me the 'dark forces' you allude to are very much closer to home - both in and outside Westminster - and I very much doubt they give a toss what happens to the UK. As for those asking for evidence one way or the other the effects post Brexit, all we can say is there will be changes, and if the latest news from Brussels is to be believed Bday looms large because the EU threatens expulsion by end of October whether Westminster is ready or not.
  3. And what was Parliament's way of confirming or otherwise such a Referendum? A ballot paper asking if you want IN or OUT! The mind boggles. Cameron et al, in my opinion, acted like a modern day Pontius Pilate on his big day in Judea - wavering as to what to do with such a complex dilemma they took the easy way out by washing their collective hands before throwing it to the people.
  4. That's what Ms May thought when she called a GE...
  5. Agreed Fosse - also with Nick's post above. There is no football soul in the top end of the PL. I may have misheard last week's sports commentary when it was reported that Man City's current player costs are close to one billion GBP. One Billion! Did I hear correctly? Do I need to call into Hearing Life? If true it is, in my opinion, totally obscene and absolutely out of touch with the reality existing for most folk in the UK. Thankfully I choose not to listen to followers of the top 4-6 PL clubs wearing down their gums banging on how bliddy wonderful it is to have the best competition worldwide. If I did I would remind them that England's last World Cup was 1966. Always Port Vale for me - warts'n'all
  6.

  10. I agree Geo. But the founding fathers of Federation in their wisdom decided it would be the right way to manage the differences between the States and Territories.
  11. The last 'long period of suspension' in the UK was at the end of WWII. Although I'm not sure why. If my memory still serves me well Geo, Australia is similar to the UK when it comes to the convention of suspending Parliament, but when it does happen such suspensions are for short periods - 1 to 2 weeks. A recent suspension 'Downunder was, in my opinion, driven by political expediency to stifle debate on tax cuts seen as unfavourable to the lowest income earners. It may have been the wrong way to resolve the tax debate - which was confirmed and passed when Parliament returned - but it was a normal, though rarely used convention. The High Court of Australia was established in 1901 by Section 71 of the our Constitution and functions to interpret and apply Federal and State issues of significance plus challenges to our Constitution. The operative word 'significance' means just that. The High Court takes a dim view of all or anyone from the body politic referring issues simply because they may be 'dubious'.
  12. Ah yes! Venture Capitalists waiting in the wings. Scary stuff Jean.
