Harold Wilson closed more pits than the Iron Lady but we mustn't mention that must we?

He does lack motivation at times to tackle certain subjects but that's down to the lack of opposition.

Down to the undemocratic system in this country which sees a party get into power with a large share to do what they like who majority of the country didn't vote for

I was kind agreeing with what you said until this. What do you mean? I don't think you are an idiot, but;

*ill-informed politicians

*left wing socialists

*do-gooders

*intent on introducing a form of Marxism

*making us all poorer. 

As you as a scientist know. The question is, we are dumping a shed  load of CO2 in the atmosphere. And have been doing for a long while. That is fact. Measurable.

Should we worry about it?

I would say so. Very much so. Based on very basic science.

If you disagree that all is fine

 

 

 

 

Please don’t start him off. You’ve seen his bigly brayne thinking in the trump thread.

How is it democracy? I will not get over it when it's an undemocratic system where our votes are not equal nor is it democratic to have a government doing what they want when majority of the public did not vote for it.

The Government had more votes than any other party, it’s democratic. You may want to change the system which is fair enough but it is 1 vote for everyone with the winner being the party who wins the most seat. It has been the same rule for years and 100% democratic, maybe not ideal but you cannot argue it is not democratic, well you can, but you’d be wrong.

It's a very rare occurance when/if the majority of the electorate vote for the party who win the election.

Usually 30% - 40% don't vote and the people who do are split over 4+ candidates. If people choose not to vote for any of the political candidates offered who represents them in any PR system.

The government wouldn't get such an easy ride if the opposition were any damned good.

We have Labour who couldn't find their ass in a bath with both hands, liberals who's leader promised to be the next PM, greens lost in the wilderness and the SNP who don't give a rat's ass about anything but independence. 

The only thing checking the Tories are the bloody Tories..... as if that's going to happen.

Not much wrong with the system except the assholes in it

I can very well argue that the system is undemocratic and be right. You can disagree with me and have your own opinion but do not tell me I'm wrong.

The same as you think the EU is undemocratic. I disagree with you however I have not said you are wrong.
