    Wasn't it just over a year ago (he stood as indie in the XXI Election, then rejoined the Tories for a month or so and then left.
    He was my favourite Tory, I know he was rich but he was humble and likable.
    Pretty much!

    Now the assisted death bill has completely disappeared! :eek: The same thing happened with the crematoria inspection bill in our subforum. Legislation concerning death seems to set off the filters.

    It was an absolute nightmare in our forum too. Half of it kept disappearing every time that we tried to format it. It was The Financier that was able to fix it in the end - it's perfect in the forum!

    EDIT: It's back!

    Yeah, built at a time with scarce resources and money, may I remind you.
    As was the case with a great many terraced houses, funnily enough I don't look at them and think "is this Britain or the form Warsaw Pact"

    Seems we're generally having a bad time with the equestrian this year given were out of the team jumping and the individuals that are through have little hopes of a medal, let alone gold.

    Owen Smith saying he'd invite IS around the negotiation table. Well that's his last chance of winning gone.

    What an idiot. The only hope he had of winning was to present himself as a more realistic politician than Corbyn and now he's blown that. I don't want either of them to be Leader of Labour.

    It was strange. I think he was trying to outCorbyn Corbyn, which seemed to be his strategy from the start of the campaign, to win over the Corbyn voters. I think this one may backfire on him. At least with Hamas and the IRA they had political motives. ISIL are religious fundamentalists, who are the last people to seek a negotiated settlement.
    He may have done Corbyn the biggest favour yet, as he has just made the PLP look like they can't pick a credible leader, after complaining about Corbyn.

    Doesn't look good for UKIP does it? It seems after Brexit, people no longer see the point to the party.

    If you claim you're pro-life, but support capital punishment, STFU and look at yourself. Hypocrite.
    How about all you that are anti capital punishment because of insufficient protections yet when somebody wants to kill themselves it's not a problem?

    Much like their TSR counterparts, they are a turbulent party who have increasingly become a shadow of their former self. Losing their old leaders turns them into a party of rambling fools with dangerous ideologies.
