Countdown to the end of Democracy in the UK 23:28 - Nov 10 with 948543 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.

Yes. And the thought of Blair going to referendum is laughable. I honestly can’t believe there are still people who defend Blair at any opportunity.


Or Brexit.

It’s funny isn’t it, that a no deal Brexit ‘hurts the EU far more than it hurts us’ and yet, they seem to be both ready for a no deal Brexit and happy to go with it, whereas we are neither ready, nor can afford to do it.

At some point people may wake up and smell the coffee. Let’s hope it’s soon.


Carney doesn't think EU are that ready for WTO rules...

Those were forced upon him by Gordon Brown.

I disliked him but at least he was a serious politician.


That’s simply not true.

Brown himself said that initially Blair and most colleagues were in favour of joining and he could also see the benefits, but he also said that when they assessed the impacts, the cabinet was unanimous in deciding that it wasn’t the right time.

Blair couldn’t have anything forced upon him in 1997. He had a huge majority and a cabinet that was fully pro Euro. If he’d been adamant he would have simply replaced Brown as chancellor. As it was he chose to listen to the arguments. As a sensible PM would do.

They don’t. He was brought up in some spurious unrelated nonsense by Jango and you.

Having said that, the rewriting of history on Blair is ridiculous. I disagreed with Iraq (unlike most on here, I suspect, I marched against it). But he also did a lot of good things.

I quite liked him when he first came in, they gave the NHS some decent wedge and brought in the Freedom of Information Act, but some of the other stuff wasn’t so good. The main think he will be remembered for is Iraq and Weapons Of Mass Destruction which we all know about.

He thinks they’re a hell of a lot more ready than we are Bluey.

I saw that interview a couple of weeks ago.

It really doesn’t matter. The EU themselves have said they’re ready and, to be honest, they’re not the ones looking like they’re crapping themselves. We have said we’re not ready. And we do look like we’re crapping ourselves.

See today’s interview from the CEO of the NHS? Laughable that we’re in this position.

How tragic has Brexit become that people are using Blair’s flirtation with the euro from late 90s as a reason to Brexit. Surprise surprise that gobshite Morgan is instigator

Noticed unemployment lowest since early 70s

Blair certainly would have taken us into the Euro if he could have got away with it. Perhaps he should have told us we’d be attacked with weapons of mass destruction if we didn’t join.


Blair’s governments had overall parliamentary majorities of 179, 166 and 66 respectively. He quite literally could have done pretty much anything he wanted to if he was so minded.

He was minded to kill a quarter of a million Iraqis, so he did.

Barbara Castle thought he was such a nice young man when he made his debut as a speaker at Conference. Neither she or the Mesopotamians saw that one coming....

You don’t actually think that photo is real surely?

Anyway, I digress. You won’t get any arguments from me about Iraq and Blair’s culpability. Unlike most who were all gung ho in favour of it at the time (despite pretending now with hindsight that they were always opposed) I wasn’t and my view hasn’t changed. I stopped voting labour for well over a decade for precisely that reason. But a Lisa has pointed out, that does tend to naturally overshadow most of Blair’s positive achievements, which were considerable. Blair’s legacy is Iraq and that’s his doing and his alone. But it’s pointless pretending that there weren’t good things too.

It’s fair enough. Select committee membership is deliberately and carefully weighted to provide a respresentaive balance that reflects the balance of the House. Gapes and Austen are no longer Labour MPs so shouldn’t be taking Labour spaces on the committee.
