Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

If you read research papers, a good...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

True. My main gripe is the number of hyperlinked references, not the Guardian especially. If someone has a good comprehension of another's work, they should be able to boil it down in a paragraph or...

MPs voted by 544 to 53 in favour of the EU Referendum Bill. I wasn't aware the Conservatives had such a large majority at the time.
