Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

Just read a cutting from the Evening Standard, Nigel Farage is calling for a Referendum on wether or not to scrap the "House Of Lords" i personally think thats a damn good idea.

The above web site reveals there has been 18 petitions debated, 7 awaiting debate, and ONE not debated.
Guess what the subject was of the latter?
Getting rid of subsidised food and drink in the Palace of Westminster.
You couldn't make it up.

Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

Here's something you're not likely to see spouted widely by Al Beeb or the leftist MSM, can't think why?


Polish Immigrants Returning Home Cite Fear of Terrorism, Anti-White Racism by Black Brits


Wasn't it the nasty nazi Brexiteers who were supposedly responsible for the nastiness to "Johnny Forengier"?

Thats obvious if they can't blame White Brit "Leavers" or elderly Brits, then total silence, I even read about a dusky ex Morgan Grenfell banker bitch yesterday saying people should pass a test before being allowed a vote, she was a staunch "Remainer,"

Not a bad idea in itself, just depends who's setting out the parameters of said test.

Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

after your post Cashy I went "Goggling" & found the story you mentioned -



Ex Goldman Sachs banker: People should pass tests before they can vote | Daily Mail Online


She also talks about how politicoes should have real world experience too prior to taking up politics. Seems she's just saying what a lot of other folk have been saying but without the benefit of a media platform.


As an aside, out of curiosity the other day I took the online "Einbürgerungstest" (all in Germling I might add) for my County of residence NiederSachsen, I scored 27/33, it was multi choice, general knowledge-Poilics & common sense, the reason I screwed up on 6 of them was translation as German wording can be a tad tricksy. So if a dumbarse like me can qualify to become a "Krautling" & then be allowed to vote at National level, why shouldn't similar apply in UK, just saying like!

However, it seems 'our' elected representatives do have the time tomorrow to debate "the contribution of Arsene Wenger to English football".
Guess which north London team that plays in red is the favourite of that arch-slime ball, Speaker John Bercow?

Sounds about right,why ever should we expect relevant things to be discussed?

because our expectations of our representative are too high.
we should realise this from his past performance....which is nothing at all to shout about or celebrate.

Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

Just had an e-mail telling me the house is committed to ensuring the house of lords "continues to fulfill its roll" etc etc, but as the petition is oer 100.000 they will consider it for a debate, So in other words they are gonna do sod all. expected as much the house is as undemocratic as anything, and people VOTE for these knobs.
