    Brexit

    How they have voted so far is in many cases not how they'll vote in the next debate. The one thing this Brexit lark has shown us is that you simply can't predict votes. For example Letwin brought in his amendment but says he's now on board with the party again. That's why Johnson could suddenly get a majority for something he's not necessarily expecting to get. It's why, if Brexit goes through, they might well get things approved that do a great deal of damage because some MPs are not currently in the Tory party but may support them on a single vote. If the DUP then join them or whatever then they have a potential majority. Can't rely on it but could get it

    Brexit

    I'm fully aware they have no apparent majority but who knows who'd vote how if it went through.

    Brexit

    There are plenty of other people to vote for but the Tories would still be in government if they got Brexit through and could do a lot of damage before we had to have an election

    Brexit

    And having conned them the Tories are denying them any right to change their minds. They bleat on about the will of the people as though a sizeable chunk of those whose will it was are still around to care. Sheer demographics show the result would probably be different even without people changing their mind and the Tories can't allow that to happen.

    Brexit

    95% of the deal is exactly what it was under Teresa May. The only thing Johnson has got rid of is the backstop and replaced it with something that will ultimately lead to the breakup of the UK. And where does the money come from that will do all those things that we all agree need doing? Have you actually costed those? Dont say from what we dont pay to the EU because we get loads back from them so you need to balance that against any perceived savings. Projections by genuine experts tell us that the economy will be weaker. I agree we dont really want Corbyn in number 10, but that doesn't mean we have to have Johnson or support his tenure in any way shape or form,

    Brexit

    Went out for lunch with a leave voting friend yesterday. We've been out many times since the referendum and always had to steer clear of Brexit because she was adamant we should be leaving asap and we didnt wantarguments to spoil lunch when we don't meet up very often. Yesterday she brought up the topic and admitted shed changed her mind. Nobody had tried to persuade her. Shed just engaged her brain and realised how many times shed been lied to. She can't be the only ine

    Brexit

    Hes the worst of the worst brexiteers. Hes my MP but I'll be honest with you, if suddenly Johnson was to come out and say Brexit was a bad idea and hed changed his mind, Nige would do a U turn too. Hes a self serving person and will say whatever he thinks will get him to where he wants to be.

    Attendances

    I wanted to get a season ticket this year for the first time in ages. I know I've mentioned this loads of times but this year, for the first time, i was very serious. I got as far as filling in an application. But my husband was less keen although it seemed a very reasonable price to me. We didn't do it. But we did attend the Luton game, the first game wed have been able to attend anyway as we didn't come home from holidays till mid september. How glad I was that we hadn't committed to watching that every few weeks. As Dolly Blue says, it's not winning every match that matters. Its watching 14 guys across a match on the pitch where you feel every player has given everything in a system that suits them so that you feel you have a chance of winning. Premier league or not, many fans would want to watch if the team looked to have a coherent pattern of play and looked fit, ready to play for one another and won or drew more than they lost

    Brexit

    Hes also virtually guaranteed that little England will be just that as the Scots wont stay in the union much longer, NI will join with the Republic much sooner than we expected and Wales will push for ever more autonomy. Farewell United Kingdom.

    Brexit

    I dont expect Labour to oppose Brexit. I expect all politicians who think with their heads about what's best for the country to oppose Brexit. But I'm not holding my breath.

    Brexit

    They're scared of losing Leave constituencies but dont seem to realise that their wavering is losing them seats which were marginal Leave/Remain and could probably pick up enough of those if they campaigned on a proper Remain platform explaining thoroughly the benefits of remaining. Instead they limp along shackled by their far left. Most people aren't ideologists. They want a comfortable life for themselves and nowadays, that means, for many, not feeling guilty that the poorest in our society are not getting poorer. They want to see a fairer way of doing things and are prepared to give a bit more if they can see it's being used properly. So theyd back a sensible programme from Labour I feel but cant get behind Corbyn. Perhaps I'm wrong and they will, but it's hard to envisage atm
