Re: Demon deal, or deal with a demon?

Very much agree with you Keith. These divisions will be long lasting I fear and this is a desperately sad byproduct of this vote which, as you suggest, has done real harm to this country.

Re: Demon deal, or deal with a demon?

My point I was attempting to make was that I am now, as possibly you have been, tarred with a leaver...

Re: Demon deal, or deal with a demon?

Incompetent - totally agree - this is evidential based on what we see almost daily.

Bigotry - sadly I have to agree. I am ashamed of the way we now present ourselves to the world as narrow...

Re: Demon deal, or deal with a demon?

Re: Demon deal, or deal with a demon?

I have long held the belief that the ultimate goal of the Tory party is to privatise the NHS. The ongoing mismanagement, so my theory goes, is to create such a mess that they have an excuse for going...

Re: MPs' Passwords Scandall

I'm afraid I have to disagree with you on many of these points.
