It's astounding how long this drags on for an issue that is no more than a simple ABC

And yet a development that is sure to feature prominently in future History books.

As we now seem to be simply retreading Michael Jackson's Greatest Hits, perhaps we should all follow Parliament's example and beat it for the next 12 days

Oh I don't know, how many people recall this is the 2nd time UK wants to back out of the EU ? Funny enough the previous time it was under Labour government.

Politicians have you believe that it's all complex to validate their existence. Human Nature I guess.

The problem is the every politician has another agenda they want to use the Brexit debate to leverage. Not one of them is actually interested in just sorting out the deal. They all have something else they are trying to get. As a result the whole thing has become a stalemate, not just at a party level, but at individual mp level. Every single one of them is a cunt.

Yeah. It's enough to make you want to Scream.

Much as I admire Yomps' attempt to heal the world, can't help feeling he's missing the point

It only becomes important when it's down to just a few days away - then it's all panic stations.

My local council (South Oxfordshire District Council) are sending out their poll cards for the European Elections on 23rd May... Royal Mail deliver them, plus the vast majority of the candidates election material. As such - no one knows if we are using the Westminster or EU constituencies for the forthcoming elections.
