Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Thats a big what if.. A lot of commentators are saying the no confidence could go either way. I've not seen any predicting a Labour win. Not even in the Grauniad - which is hardly likely to offer succour to the Tories! Disappointing. And may rebound on Corbyn, spelling trouble ahead for him. Which ...

That's OK - we Remainers would simply write in the word "REMAIN" on the ballot papers, if that isn't listed as one of the options.

The Returning Officers can't ignore 15-plus million "spoilt" papers now can they?

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Seems the DUP[licitous] lot will back Tories tomorrow - so the No Confidence will almost certainly fail. A shame - but not really a surprise. Let's see what the next opinion polls say though. I know people no longer believe in the pollsters - but sometimes they get it right. Will we have to wait unt...

You need to offer him even more room. After all, those stabilisers must take up a lot of space.... :twisted:

I'm not saying I have that power. It's down to others - however atrophied they may be.

Nor have you the power to stop R2 coming about.

Nor have either of us the power to determine its outcome. We can merely cast one vote each. Wait and see.

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

How do you turn back the will of the people as voted, not what you think a R2 will vote? Aren't you forgetting that a lot of voters who voted in 2016 aren't around any more? And that a lot of new voters have reached the age of 18 since? And even of those voted then and are still alive - haven't the...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Confidence vote: think of turkeys and Crimbo. But which are the turkeys? I don't know how the figures add up - I suppose it depends on those DUP lot. Sinn Fein historically never take their seats, so they'll be absent. Tulip Siddiq (Lab) is expecting a baby at any moment, she may be absent. Fiona O...

As you said - your opinion - but nothing of the kind! Do you honestly imagine that the entire Labour Party, the LibDems, the SNP, Plaid Cymru, Green, all voted for No Deal?

Just pop outside for a moment and watch those pigs winging their way towards the distant hills....

Re: Your vote on Mrs May's Deal ( just for today)

Question for the OP: is the attaching of a 'poll' to this thread a device for ensuring that it can't be merged with the main thread?

What's the point? Other than the obvious, of course....

No-confidence motion tomorrow.

Not sure that's the best move. Result is less predictable. If there's a GE that offers some breathing space. But if there isn't....?

Re: Wood Burners

I've no experience of closed wood-burning stoves, but I can assure you that our wood-burning open grate in France generates a lot of ash and needs thorough cleaning out after every fire we've burnt there. I certainly find it a good idea to wear a dust mask for this operation! And the ash goes on the...

Re: Wood Burners

That 38% includes coal, so it is not just wood. Two fuel types lumped together. I think you misunderstand me. The DEFRA article which I linked to, lists sources of PM2.5 pollution by location, regardless of fuel type used at that location. So it would have included particulates originating from coa...

On the drive home tonight radio 4 had an interview with a boffin who studies air pollution matters. Very interesting. The points I noted is below!: 38% of all uk particulate pollution is from woodburners I don't know where that statistic came from, nor what exactly is meant by "from woodburner...
