    Not sure if that's a good idea really, not that it'll pass the commons.

    Excellent news! I miss the days of fevered speculation about when an election was going to be called.

    Whoever submitted that is clever if they're a Tory and a silly idiot if they're not.

    Gavin Creelman: The Relevance of Thoburn to the Article 50 "Trigger" Debate

    UKCLA is banging out some cracking stuff lately, this is well worth a read for anyone interested in the Art 50 process.

    TL;DR: Theresa May using the prerogative to trigger Article 50 would be unlawful, and her doing so should be voided by a court. The only way it can legally be done is through Act of Parliament.

    Interesting, no wonder she's stalling.

    Totalitarian any day. Ancaps are so extreme even the libertarians reject them.

    Cameron served with Lawson when he was Chancellor so one can believe reasonably that Cameron is a mild Thatcherite.

    Osbourne let loose would be very libertarian, much less tax, much less spend, privatise everything.

    Lib Dem economic policy before the coalition was set by Vince so it's harder to say however i'd say the key change is that both Clegg and Alexander are less keen ideological privatisation, probably about as radical on tax but probably more open to higher spending. Both i think are mildly classically liberal.
    Where do you think May lies economically?

    Lol, my university has requested a trigger warning on the Twitter posts.

    For which posts? "anything which may cause offence, such as a stat about domestic violence, which may trigger PTSD"

    :facepalm:

    We had a social media policy imposed on us at university recently due to two people having an argument over facebook and one reporting the other to the HoD, while the other person reported the first individual to HR.
    Hang on - your universities are trying to control what you post from private social media accounts, using your own private devices, expressing your personal opinions? :eek:

    Why not? If the tories think they will win an increased majority then why wouldn't they vote it through? and I have no doubt a few labour MPs might vote for it thinking they could remove Corbyn after a GE loss

    A coalition bill which, I believe, the lib dems insisted on, to stop the tories calling an election as soon as it looked like they might get a majority and not need the lib dems

    It was in their manifesto before they entered the coalition. The fact that it meant the Tories couldn't do that was just a positive consequence for the libdems.

    Well either way May certainly doesn't like the idea of an early election.

    I'm sure it was, but what I meant is I believe it was one of the 'red lines' of the coalition that this would be Government legislation, and the tories would vote for it.

    In effect, it's under the guise of not bringing the university into disrepute, but in reality, it's presumably to control what we say. I don't post anything on social media anyway, but it's still the principle.
