    ...as long as elections don't end up "hung" and requiring a coalition of 5 parties to form a government and the coalition negotiations taking as much as 8 or 9 months before a new government is formed as happens frequently in the Netherlands and Belgium.

    Your comments about the Tories and the ERG could equally be aimed at Corbyn and the mess he looks after.

    I have no time for any of the so called party leaders.

    Politics will become a social media battle ground, much like we have today. Everyone's an expert and there is so much misinformation out there now. The big social media platforms know everything about you and tailor you reading input to match your views. Dangerous ground IMO.

    We as a society need to find a way to manage social media, it's polarising everyone. I don't do Facebook, rarely go on Twitter but do like some forums.

    Well I’ve never voted Tory and have to say, that now seems further away than ever.

    As far as everything else goes in that last post - and this is unusual - I wholeheartedly agree with you on virtually all of it.

    Now...can we send Johnson and Lord Snooty up to Scotland and have them locked up please?

    Depends where he is, whether that country is on the DCFC dark list of countries where no company has bought the SBC rights unless he has a VPN and can assume, for instance, a Dutch IP address. Unless he finds a stream.

    Maybe I just looked at his post sequentially.... coming home Saturday and watching the game on the iPad

    You should try voting tory.. Will make you feel all warm and fuzzy.
    Not sure how this scottish thing pans out. The high court in London are still sayings it's political, so nothing to do with them. Will just mean appeals I suppose and more money wasted. They will probably be back before it's sorted.

    They're also getting involved in the Tempest project (don't take any notice if you're a remainer who thinks that leaving the EU means the end of economic and defence relationships)

    Now stop that Adi, it's silly.

    We'll be at war in a year, everyone jobless. Houses free with a gallon of petrol and every sick person dead with a lack of medicine.
    We have to stay strong, as we'll be malnourished you know.

    Boris Johnson was visiting a primary school where he found a class in the middle of a discussion on words and their meanings.

    The teacher (sorry Angry!) asked the PM if he would like to lead the discussion on the word ‘tragedy’.

    The PM asked the class for an example of a ‘tragedy’ at which point one little boy stood up and said...’If my best friend, who lives on a farm, was playing in a field and was run over and killed by a tractor that would be a tragedy.’

    ‘No’, said Johnson, rather ungraciously, ‘that would be an accident.’

    A second child raised her hand; ‘If a school bus carrying fifty children plunged over a cliff killing everyone on board, that would be a tragedy.’

    ‘Not really, said Johnson again...’that would be what we call a great loss’.

    The room went very quiet and no other children volunteered an answer.

    ‘Can no one give me an example of a tragedy?’ questioned an increasingly frustrated Prime Minister.

    Eventually a single hand went up at the back of the classroom and a little boy offered...

    ‘If the plane carrying you and Dominic Cummings was struck by a friendly fire missile and blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy.’

    ‘Fantastic’ exclaimed a delighted Johnson. ‘At last...and can you explain to us why that would be a tragedy?’

    ‘Well’...continued the little boy, ‘it has to be a tragedy because it certainly wouldn’t be a great loss and it probably wouldn’t be a f***ing accident either!’

    You can call me right wing if you wish, (strange that for an ex miner)
    Brexit supporting - true
    Forest fan- true born and bred

    How do I clarify you?
    You've never voted Tory/ Strange that, as I can only conclude you never assess every party at the time of election.
    That's very narrow minded but in your profession, I'm not surprised.

    It's obvious you want to be an EU puppet and all that goes with it. Your choice I'd never try to change you.
    However, The voting public were asked and more wanted out than in. ( here comes the percentage **** again)

    Is there a snowflake Undemocratic when it suits as party you could join? SUP?

    Oops...someone’s lost their sense of humour this morning.

    You do know what that winking emoji thingy means don’t you Tricky?

    Not sure what once being a miner has to do with it. Patrick McLoughlin was a miner once too...mind you, he seems to have had almost as many jobs as you.

    ‘Undemocratic’...me? Am I not the one who’s been advocating a second, better informed Referendum? Remind me where the Brexiteers stand on that one and remind me where Johnson and his ERG mates stand on Parliament being allowed to represent the electorate for the next five weeks.

    ‘EU puppet’...absolute nonsense. I have repeatedly said that there are things about the EU I would seek to change. There are things about DCFC I would seek to change too, but no one’s likely to take much notice if I run away to support another ‘club’ are they?
