Oh, it'll be funny if we end up with a Conservative/Lib Dem government. A Labour/Lib Dem government would be even funnier.

Currently because of the brexit issue i can't see the Tories and Lib Dems agreeing to a coaliton. If the Tories don't get enough seats for a majority they will either have to run a minority government or rerun the election again.

Labour and Lib Dems i could see potentially agreeing to a coalition as Labours stance on brexit is clearly less hardline than the Tories even though they seem to be refusing to state their case.

The main one is that discussion, analysis and satire of a GE or referendum must cease on TV when the polls officially open and remain as such until they close. This was most notable last year when John Oliver had to be delayed on Sky Atlantic.

I don't know I could see the Dem's agreeing to a coalition for soft brexit trade off. Which would wipe their party out again.

100% it would destroy them again. I just wonder how strong they could have been now if they didn't enter into that coalition. They really could have taken some labour support and anti-brexit voters.

It's one of my all time favourite films. This has nothing to do with the naked scenes of Vanessa Howard :shifty:


I had never heard of this so gave it a watch, its bloody hillarious :lol:


I just watched this film and I have to say it's amazing, depressing and sad it is that this film still seems hugely relevant today. Honestly, you wouldn't have to do much to update it.

It reads like an april fools manifesto.

She's going to end the LGBT community, she's going it end it.

So it looks we're definitely going to have a referendum next year about changing the abortion laws in Ireland.
Probably ends any chance of a general election this year as well.

What's the driver behind this? making it more or less liberal?

More liberal. How much more will depend on how the rest of the votes the assembly take part in this weekend go.

I agree with the sentiment, but this isn't really attached to any policy. So it's kind of confusing why she bothered to write it. I'm guessing it's because UKIP are basically a dressed up racist part, but there are far better ways to write those statements.

I've read it a few times and I still don't get what "every class should have a classroom and not get moved around," means.

It means that students would be based in one room all day, instead of having to walk to a different room for different subjects (French and Maths say). I'm not sure how that would work when kids started studying for their GCSE's though.
