The betdata/io chart shows the latest WH2020 betting and as can be seen Trump remains the evens favourite to secure re-election in November next year. The overnight apparently dramatic news that this is only the third time in US history that the House of Representatives has voted in this way was widely anticipated and, of course, only the Senate can remove him from office.
For too long many opponents of Brexit were stuck in the first stage of grief (shock and denial). Mr Meeks of this parish has got stuck on the anger stage. Once Brexit is done people can move onwards to acceptance and healing can begin.
It is apparently quite amusing.
Corbyn ignores Johnson walking like a zombie, good natured shoving & pushing between Thornberry & Blackford
“That article talks about “ongoing ... prosecutions”. If that is a reference to NI then it suggests that the government is seeking to stop the prosecution of Soldier F, charged with two murders. I bloody hope not.
Double jeopardy already applies and does not need new legislation, unless the government is preparing to repeal the legislation which allowed the retrials of the killers of Stephen Lawrence. And retrospective legislation has always been contrary to English law, except in very specific circumstances.
It still remains to be seen exactly what mischief needs to be addressed which cannot already be dealt with using the existing law. Or whether the government is really trying to give certain groups immunity from the law.”
tl;dr - it wasn't Corbyn's fault
tl;dr - it was the media and establishment's fault
I suspect my mother would define herself as "respectable" long before she thought about being working class or middle class. I can't honestly say I think about being the member of a class from one month to the next.
By making it about Biden it makes this impeachment look like a reaction to Trump going after Dems personally.
It is super weird.
More house buying subsidies to annoy me. Just build more.
However the mechanism for calling the election was a Royal Prerogative and its not clear how or if that can be brought back. Some argument it can't be brought back but we'll see soon I guess.
Any surprises in the Gracious Speech? I didn't spot any.
Either way we’ve traded one tedious windbag for another...
If people find it easier to buy homes, then that encourages companies to build more homes. One feeds the other. It is simple supply and demand.
I reckon he goes full Gavin Belson when he loses it.
House building rates are at record levels and home ownership rates are going up. The policies are working as intended.
Apart from those self evident truths her letter is all nonsense.
It baffles me why some on this site are unhappy with policies that are ensuring house building is occuring and home ownership rates are going up.
I would support abolition of the green belt but I'm aware that's a niche view.
Are we any nearer knowing who will pay for it? General taxation? A charge on the estate after death?
Could she not be found a seat in Bootle or Walton or somewhere where she can carry on her important work without having to worry about getting anyone to vote for her?
Nominal gains so remortgaging etc isn't a problem for owners but increasing affordability.
What was wrong with "D'oh, Jeremy Corbyn".
Its a function of improved housebuilding rates I suspect. The more building that occurs the less pressure on house price inflation there is.
It may well cause his base to turn out, but that won't matter if floating voters are against him.
