All those manifestos (2019 Election)

15th December 2019

Now that the election is over, the manifestos that the political parties have made for this election will probably be removed from the parties’ websites over the next few weeks. So I’ve uploaded (nearly) all of them onto my server and put the links to them below. Do whatever you like with them. Conservative Manifesto […]

We will be leaving the European Union on 31st January 2020.

13th December 2019

As I am writing this, at 5.09am, the Conservatives have just passed the 326-seat mark needed to form a majority government.

12th December 2019

No Comments

I think that today’s election will result in another hung Parliament. It seems that the Conservatives won’t have another minority government with the DUP due to the Irish border issue, so if they don’t achieve a majority in Parliament, then Labour will probably team up with either the Liberal Democrats (if they are 10 – […]

Why no Brexit would be a catastrophe

26th March 2019

No Comments

As of Friday 22nd March, one petition has gained 3.4 million signatures. It was for revoking Article 50 and remaining in the EU. A day later, there was a large “People’s Vote” protest in London, which hundreds of thousands attended. Staying in the EU or doing a second referendum would be a catastrophe for democracy. […]

Why a no-deal would bring more certainty than May’s deal

25th November 2018

No Comments

Theresa May went to Brussels and negotiated a deal which would leave us in most parts of the single market and the customs union until at least 2022. And it’s up to the EU as to when we can leave the customs union & single market. This is the exact opposite of the “strong and […]
