    For as long as the first past the post system exists the majority of the population shall be without representation. A coalition government is now needed more than ever. The Tories will do their damnedest to prevent that from happening.
    London : 'we're holding a referendum to leave the Eureopean union
    EU: 'OK'
    Scotland: 'we're holding a referendum to leave the UK union'
    London: ' Oh no you're not'.

    If the PM won't give more brexit details, then the GE campaign is going to be quiet. The pensioners will vote Tory even if they removed the state pension. Project fear will continue, making up stories about what will happen if you dare vote against the Tories, and the same mugs who bought into the Brexit promises will defend the elite, while claiming the opposite.

    It's easy. You negotiate with Ms Swift and explain the benefits of your proposed union.

    The worst thing about it is that, even with no further details of what Brexit will entail, May will claim any election victory as a "mandate" to push through whatever deal she wants.

    Quite Machiavellian, really.

    Hence her needing a large majority.

    Vote any other party who is likely to get in where you are to screw her up.

    Well we won't know until the negotiations begin in earnest. Once his people start talking to her people things will become clearer.

    That's the thing with negotiations ... you don't know what the deal is until the end of the negotiation.

    If you knew what the outcome was of negotiation was before it began it wouldn't be negotiation would it? It would be a "done deal".

    Good luck ATW!
