Source: YouGov survey December 11, 2018, 2:16 p.m.

Matthew Smith
Lead data journalist

Sinn Fein is the most disliked from our list of nine parties

A new YouGov survey shows that the Greens are Britainís most well-regarded political party, with 41% of Brits holding a favourable view.

In second place of the nine parties included in the study comes Labour, at 37%, with the Tories in third on 35%. Just under three in ten people (28%) say they like the Lib Dems, and 20% have a favourable opinion of UKIP.

The Green party is also the only party with a positive net favourability score, meaning that more people like them than dislike them. As it is, just 37% of people say they dislike the Greens, giving the party a net favourability score of +4.

Nebulous may be appropriate, but he must try to be a bit more diplomatic.

Agreed. He is lucky he didnít get a bitch slap.

Mr Juncker told a press conference that their heated conversation resulted from a misunderstanding and the prime minister was ďkissingĒ him within hours.

He certainly is very touchy, beyond norms. I have my doubts he would get away with it in many civilised countries.

Yes stay in, but one of the reforms must be to ditch J-CJ

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

I read an article several weekaback wher a millionairess had been refuse access to her account. Apaerently, and dosh belongs to Luxwmbourg and they can refuse access. Your dosh is kept under the auspices of an attorney(s) who oversee the accounts and, as such heave the power to refuse access. The lady concerned was also informed they were fining her X amount per ??? with interest on any non-payments. Takes greed to a whole new lwvel.

As for the new EU 2018 laws enforcing cracking down on tax avoidance... they are still at it. http://delano.lu/d/detail/news/bruss...g-rules/195356

Probable be more worried if they had to pay for J-CJ annual bar bills.

This snippet, if true, was Q I

QUOTE Don't waste time and energy about getting "Article 50 action" going - not if you want a quick Exit! . You are all being deliberately diverted away from the truth about the Legal Quick Exit Route which has been enshrined in Law since 1965 - yes, that's right - 8 years before we joined the EEC. It's called an "Emergency Order In Council" - and the current metro-Elite and brown-nosing "Sir Humphreys" would much rather that the Electorate doesn't know about it! The referendum is purely "Advisory". The Laws will not change quickly, - unless the Electorate forces the political Elite to ask for an Order In Council to repeal the Ņ1972 European Communities Act, as AmendedŅ which is the Ņenabling Legal InstrumentŅ for everything EU-related which followed it. . Under arrangements made to cope with a devolution of government administration to the 6 Regional Seats Of Government during a possible nuclear war involving an attack on the UK , - THEY ARE STILL THE LAW OF THE LAND;

Itís a chasm thatís dividing both parties, Labour would go through the same chaos as the Toryís catastrophe, if he does anything. All the time the Toryís are destroying themselves Corbin can just sit back and enjoy it.

Who in their right mind would want to pick up the reins of the biggest mess in living memory.

Short of an Alien invasion or Godzilla rampaging through the streets, there is little that will unite this country for many years to come...

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

Itís a boom for the parties in opposition and itís a boom for the media, both will reap from the bad news caused by a hard Brexit. In the meantime, whatís the government doing to address child poverty, universal credit, a struggling NHS?......the list goes on. Nigel Farage is calling for a second referendum. What a bad egg he turned out to be.

I have no time for Farage, but the blame for the fiasco that is Brexit rests wholly on the Tory party.

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.

I can agree that NG is a total prat, aka a total Gobs***e.

As for where the underlying blame lies, it lies squarely on on the shoulders of each and every politician in parliament.

The toe-rags, as the so-called 'party in power' will shoulder much of the blame, and deservedly so. At the end of the day, they all, should share the burden of blame.

The Labour Party live in cloud cuckoo land with their 'six tests' and being able to set up independent trade arrangements with the rest of the world; alignment with the EU according to the party's published negotiation terms and independent trade are mutually exclusive. I suspect Diane Abbott had a hand in this, the numerical genius of the party. God help us if they get into power!

I had no idea that when I posted the opening to this thread that it would turn out to be so propheti. As today is Saturday... do you think it might be worthwhile buying an UK lottery ticket?

If we cast our mind back to 2016 when Farage held a great deal of pressure on David Cameron to call for the referendum with arguments for greater immigration control etc and Cameron fell for it and onto his sword. The conservatives are going that way. UKIP are now has beenís. The Brexiteers had a dream or is it going to turn out to be a nightmare. I blame Farage and Cameron. 37% of the Tory MPís voted against May, a significant rebellion.
