    To feel the benefits of Brexit, you have to be a true believer. Close your eyes, wish for unicorns really hard, then send £50 to Nigel Farage. That should do it.
    When challenging a Kzin, a simple scream of rage is sufficient. You scream and you leap.

    Dead people - classy. But since you want to go there, there's a by-election next Thursday in Newport. A Labour constituency that voted 56/44 in favour of leave and yet was represented by a staunchly pro EU MP.

    It will be the first chance for the people to indicate how they feel about that in electing their new MP.

    Fancy your chances do you? Let's see if remainers celebration of dead brexiteers changes things in their favour... I think you will be surprised.
    Brexiteers are the new remainers. To remain outside of the EU.

    A bit like those preachers in the US that get people to send in money that John Oliver was talking about last year. Except they are more realistic about what will happen with the money.

    Who was celebrating? I think you were reading too much into that. I was just pointing out a fact. I can explain what those are, since your posts indicate a lack of experience.

    As for elections, bring them on. We will have the EU election soon. Let's see whose base is more motivated to get involved in that. I think you are going to be depressed and terrified.

    Hahaha, methinks you are relying too much on feckless lazy students being able to get out of bed and vote. They couldn't be arsed last time and certainly won't this time, after their hangovers from the night before having spent their student loans on funding profits for that great brexiteer Tim Martin of Wetherspoons. Meantime my May 2nd local elections voting card arrived today, safe in the draw primed and ready. I promise you I will be voting, convenient day to hold the general election too. You are right, bring it on...

    Minimum time for a general election is 6 weeks (so if one were called right now it wouldn't be until after May 13th), which would start no later than two weeks after a no-confidence motion passes. So if Jeremy Corbyn calls and wins a no-confidence motion in the government next week, assuming May is stubborn enough to try and draw it out the earliest the election could be called is 16 April, with a general election happening in the week of 27 May (the week after the European Parliament elections).

    Of course, the Tories would be contesting the election in the middle of a leadership contest, as May promised to not lead the party in the next general election, which would somewhat distract them from the campaign.

    Did you mean that the other way around?

    Incidentally, since moving in August, Newport West is my new constituency. If you see me posting on Thursday feel free to yell at me to go and vote. Just in case I forget what day it is

    17 days is the minimum according to the FTPA.

    As an aside those poor remainers in the Tory party are about to lose another champion for their cause, just in time for a general election.

    36 thousand people elect him. Fewer than 200 people deselect him. Is this more of this "democracy" you are so proud of? But shouldn't you be against this anyway? A democratic vote was taken to select him, shouldn't that stand forever? A change of circumstances is never justification for repeating a vote, according to you.

    It's almost like this is a perfect example of what a hypocrite you are.

    May is trying to get a fourth vote on her deal. But the public should still only get one vote, because it would be insulting to them to ask for another, right?

    Shows the contempt and disrespect she has for Parliament. If anybody is deselected it should be her.

  14. #16794
    With all this blUKIP stuff I sure do hope our media makes as big a deal about entryism as they did when it happened to Labour. I expect the Daily Fail and the tabloids to be absolutely outraged that extremism is infiltrating the Conservatives. Or is it only when it's a left wing issue that it's a problem?

    But the English are barely English in the first place, they are descendants of Normans/Saxons/Jutes and whatnot - the original population was killed off.
    "English" comes from the Angles, a tribe who came over with the Saxons and Jutes during the Germanic migrations. However the idea that the original Britons living in the area that became England were displaced or wiped out is false. It was really only the ruling class and their soldiers who were replaced. Genetically the invasions made relatively little impact on the population.

    But Anglo-Saxons were the one group we know did have a substantial impact on the gene pool.

    To be fair we were speaking Welsh at the time*, is it any wonder we swapped it for literally anything else that came along?

    *although there is a theory going around that parts of post-Roman Britain had started adopting Germanic languages prior to the Anglo-Saxon invasion.

    That's a slightly bigger effect than I last read about, but this is something that is often adjusted as they refine their methods. However getting back to the point @Maklor originally made;

    “[Our results] suggest that at least 20% of the genetic makeup in this area is from Anglo-Saxon migrants, and that there was mixing,” said Robinson. “It is not genocide or complete disappearance of Britons.”
