Countdown to the end of Democracy in the UK 23:28 - Nov 10 with 892931 viewspikeypaul



And like a typical anti democracy remoaner he decided the will of the people should be ignored the minute the democratic result was in total fecking hypocrite 😂😂😂😂😂😂

Despite it being voted in to law by the commons the spineless two faced remoaner MPs have totally abandoned any morals and decided to ignore the will of the British people.

It will be remembered and no election or referendum will ever be the same again in this country.

The one thing that will come is a massive surge in the popularity of UKIP or a similar party in the future who stand for the 52%.

Happy Days.

Evening Standard comment: The Speaker is right – MPs are taking control
10 January 2019

The fundamental problem that most Conservatives have with John Bercow is that they’ve never persuaded a majority in Parliament to agree with them.

That’s why they failed to stop him becoming Speaker a decade ago, failed to depose him from the chair five years later, and failed yesterday to nullify the effect of his decision to call the rebel Tory amendment.

Forget for a moment the hypocrisy: the fact that this amendment had the effect of handing control to Parliament, the very thing the now outraged Brexiteers claimed their cause was all about.

Forget, too, the selective memories: these same Right-wing backbenchers used to laud this Speaker when he would call them time and again to speak against the Cameron government.

Forget even the laughable outrage directed at Mr Bercow for allegedly ignoring expert official advice: the whole Brexit case is that the so-called “establishment” of experts and civil servants should be overruled.

The simple fact is this: the Government lost the motion yesterday not because Mr Bercow allowed a vote on it, but because they could not persuade more than half of the MPs to cast their votes against it.

We return to the central political truth. For all the trappings of Number 10, the British political system is parliamentary not presidential. Power lies with the person or group that can get a majority of MPs to support their plans.

The May Government can no longer do that and so it has been stripped of its power. That was first evident when the results came through on the night of the 2017 election, as a hard-won Tory majority was lost.

Mrs May could have used the time since then to construct a new majority for the crunch Brexit vote everyone knew would come by investing time and effort into courting Labour moderates whose support she knew she would need.
Instead, she achieved the exact opposite — driving Tory moderates into alliance with them and against her. It takes hard work to make a rebel out of the likes of Oliver Letwin and Dominic Grieve, but she’s done it.

Listening to Business Secretary Greg Clark this morning, there are those in her Cabinet who would join them if there was a serious risk of the Government taking Britain out of the EU without a deal.

There is no prospect of her winning the vote next week on her deal.

Conservative whips have this week been giving Cabinet ministers lists of more than 100 Tory MPs whose votes they need to change. It won’t happen.

So the key question is what she does next. Does she tack towards the hard Brexiteers, try literally to buy off the DUP, keep “no deal” on the table, and provide further meaningless reassurances on issues such as the backstop, which everyone knows have no legal force?

Or does she make a big pivot towards the Labour and Tory moderates, embrace things like a permanent customs union, accept this inevitably means at least delaying Brexit, and hope to scrabble together a parliamentary majority from them?

Yesterday, by accepting both a Tory amendment (from Hugo Swire) on Commons oversight of the backstop and a Labour amendment (from John Mann) on adopting EU social protections, the Prime Minister revealed she still hasn’t decided which way to turn to try to recapture the majority she lost.

What Mr Bercow did yesterday and, we predict, will do in the weeks ahead, is provide every means for others to assemble a majority in Parliament and to seize control.

We will see if they are able to do so. That is not unconstitutional; that is the British constitution in action.

On a serious note it’s a big question for our government and education system as to why we aren’t producing enough of our own neurosurgeons. I mean it’s not rocket science is it?


We do produce many new surgeons and doctors in this country, the problem is as soon as they finish their training they bugger off to sunnier climes and better pay and working conditions
.


It costs the NHS about £350k to train these people...sometimes a waste of taxpayers money.
We need desperately more people from abroad to fill these positions.

Haven’t the EU already done a deal which sees tariffs on agricultural produce slashed by 97%.

Is this trade deal as a result of negotiations or a legacy of the old BSE restrictions being removed?

She’s given up in her own lot now and is trying to persuade enough Labour MPs to vote wth her.

I still think her deal will be ratified on the second attempt.

No.

Our guys tend to go to usa or australia for the sunnier climates.
Not sure too many fancy , say, Iraq or Pakistan....

We offer Rachid a job and so we are alright Jack....

The poor people in Iraq or Pakistan however lose the neurosurgeon that they paid to train and are screwed.

Money does not talk, it swears.

Couldn't agree more with this. I had a friend in school who went to UCL and studied Medicine - as soon as he was finished he emigrated to New Zealand. Fair enough but don't allow the UK taxpayer to fund that! Should be a minimum expectation of service in the NHS after training.

Or even better, make working conditions in the nhs better so people don’t want to go.

My sister in law midwife emigrated to Australia purely due to the considerably smaller ratio of midwife to baby/parents.
