    Voters have spoken:

    Speaker Bercow announces convicted Fiona Onasanya kicked out Commons by constituents (1st May 2019)

    Look at Bercow’s body language; the toad is angry and dismissive of voters decision.

    Vote UKIP or DUP on Thursday

      Neither are on the ballot for us. This is what it comes down to – who is preselected and presented in any ward.

      Excellent.

      Thanks, Pcar.

    err not voters just people putting a signature on a piece of paper. Have a look at the form. No mention of voters, or electors, just “eligible people” and no idea how the signature could be checked to tally up with an elector (eligible person?).
    Good innit.

    Turning up and expressing your opinion is vital – folk died for that privilege.

    If there is a Brexit Party candidate, vote Brexit – if not and there is a UKIP candidate then vote UKIP.

    If neither, write “Brexit Now” across your ballot paper and deposit it in the box.

    That’s the only message that matters, whatever election is being held.

      No,people fought for our right to choose. I choose not to vote, as there is no one worth voting for. I refuse to participate in the process that I find pointless.

      I honestly believe it is the choice that matters.

        I carefully wrote “expressing your opinion”, I did not mention that they died for the privilege of “voting”.

        Abstention indicates that you have no opinion worthy of expression and, at worst, indicates apathy, thus giving the rulers free rein to do whatever they will in your name. “Don’t blame me, I didn’t take part” is a cop-out.

        Taking the trouble to turn up and spoil the paper at least indicates that you are prepared to put yourself out to make a statement.

    First time I ever spoiled my ballot paper, but faced with four Remoaner candidates I had no choice. Definitely voting Brexit Part or UKIP at the EU elections that we should not even be having under this treacherous excuse for a prime minister.

    Fiona Onasanya should also have been charged with perverting the course of Brexit but she could not come anywhere near super liar May. All the more reason to have radicals like Tommy Robinson standing in elections, we have a Parliament that appears suicidal, Trump likes to quote the term swamp, here I would prefer the term sewer for those in both Houses of Parliament who talk crap and are crap which is the majority, Amen.

    The toppling of Theresa: Day 28

    Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson Sacked for Defending the country, GCHQ & Five-Eyes

    “…Yesterday Mrs May accused her Defence Secretary, Gavin Williamson, of failing to co-operate fully with a Whitehall investigation launched by Cabinet Secretary Sir Mark Sedwill, and ordered him out of his department. The inquiry related to the leaking of information from a meeting of the National Security Council about the Government’s deal with the global Chinese company Huawei. It was an investigation that seemed designed to eclipse the real issue, the real security threat that a government contract with Huawei to allow it to help build its 5G network would constitute.

    May, a veritable modern-day Goneril, told Williamson that ‘the probe’ had found ‘compelling evidence’ suggesting his ‘responsibility for the unauthorised disclosure’ and that ‘no other, credible version of events to explain this leak has been identified’.

    Williamson strenuously denied that he was in ‘any way involved in this leak‘ and questioned the quality of the investigation. This raises a crucial question: where is the evidence?…”

    “…The Prime Minister of this country delegated the future of a Secretary of State to a civil servant, accepted the civil servant’s accusation before consulting her minister, and offered the minister only two choices, resign or be dismissed. After their meeting, she wrote a formal letter: ‘No other credible version of events to explain this leak has been identified.’ That’s not a citation of proof – at best, that’s a diagnosis by exclusion.

    May is so weak that she delegates responsibility for cabinet appointments, then accepts a civil servant’s word over her minister’s..”

    May has aided “Britain’s EU-loving civil servants matching the EU’s unelected executives: make policies and treaties in secret, avoid accountability, tell elected politicians what to endorse, demand secrecy, and take the scalps of elected politicians who don’t toe the line.”

    My mother asked today “When will someone shoot May?”

    I daily expect to hear that the PM has decided that this month will have a 32nd day, a 33rd day, a 34th day etc, thus ensuring that we shall never be allowed to see the end of May.

      Yep, this Williamson business was not timed awfully well.

    Is Guy Fawkes on the ballot paper?

    • May 3, 2019 at 7:30 am

      Would anyone have dared write V for Vendetta?
