    Yep, been saying it for weeks now.

    Count back three weeks from 29th March, and that will be when TM fires the starting pistol

    The Tories will hold a GE after Brexit because they will no longer want to be in government. Labour will win and the Tories can then blame Labour for the downturn in the economy rather than blaming Brexit.
    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    So for the first time ever, there'll be a good reason to elect a Tory government…

    Politicians don't think that way. As long as they get power, that's all that matters.

    Indeed. I have been wondering if political parties should not be abolished? MPs seem to have little loyalty to their constituents?

    Okay - ita a cr4p idea - however at a minimum referedums need to be abolished - it is too divisive.

    Referenda can't be abolished under the British parliamentary system.
