One positive about Johnson’s Brexit Deal is that it delivers victory for the people of the Republic of Ireland, who have had to live for three years with the uncertainty and worry caused by a Brexit they never asked for. After 800 years of taking our shite, they’ve won.
MarquesMarks said: "Our MPs should be made to do their jobs - and be the final arbiters on this deal, to implement Brexit as they promised their voters they would."The trouble is that many of the MPs who voted Remain promised that they would honour the referendum result but didn`t really mean it. They were scared of their particular electorate rather than standing up for what they really thought. This wss always going to end badly.
Is there a word for that moment after you close a bet out and are undecided as to whether you did the right thing?
Voter ID: an interesting debate. 1. I think we should wait to carefully critique the proposals when they are published, rather than immediately jumping to American talking points on both sides. There’s literally a hundred other systems out there that are not what happens in the USA. See healthcare for another example of this phenomenon. 2. There have been several court cases of voter fraud, but from memory these were mostly registration and postal voting fraud rather than impersonation at polling stations. Will the proposals address these problems as well? 3. The implementation needs to be careful in that it doesn’t unduly burden people with paperwork, so for example all existing verified welfare claimants and pensioners should be automatically sent a card. 4. The concept of voter identification is already in use in other countries, including many which don’t have a Compulsory national ID card Scheme. It would be good to read and observe how things work abroad to design a best practice at home. 5. Ignore all mentions of the USA with regard to voter ID. Did I mention that one before? Twitter today is full of Americans talking about this.
