    Seems some Labour members have been purged AFTER voting now and been informed their vote no longer counts.

    Because they act all "anti racist" and "progressive" even though they're incredibly racist and regressive so that most people are too scared to oppose or speak out against them.

    I met some BLM supporters in New York the other day handing out cd's a group of them tried to intimidate my friend because he wore a NYPD shirt and apparently started claiming his friend who was also in the city was racist for not taking a cd.

    Because if you condemn BLM UK you end up with an 8 hour debate on how socio-economic status is not to blame (despite providing crime statistics, socio-economic figures etc.), it's apparently inherent white privilege and blatant institutional racism. Check my facebook if you don't believe me.

    Orr perhaps it was one of the latest stories published (which it was based on when you posted) and that's the bit where they show the latest stories on popular topics and generally popular articles... Before citing bias get your facts straight or you'll loose all credibility.

    The BBC need to drill further into how there still isn't a serious plan on how to progress with Brexit talks.

    As for interviewing Hunt, sure that's grand, he doesn't need to answer any questions, just let him read his script, basically the same thing.

    To be honest i don't see how half the people here would be happy regardless given that the party made May leader.

    If May had come up with a plan quickly then half you people would be arguing that it's rash, full of holes, reckless. Now that she's said we'll wait 6-9 months to formulate a proper plan of action, you people are now complaining that she's not told the public exactly what she wants in advance of negotiations in which electorates will find the perception important.

    Personally i think that she'd taken the right approach, there's no need to rush and no need to pander to the people yet since any election is years away.

    My problem isn't with its prominence on the front page at all, indeed on that I couldn't care less. The issue is the wording. The headline is deliberately ambiguous. After all, why couldn't they have put 'No serious brexit talks 'for 12 months' predicts former EC president'? There is enough space for that headline (see the Wiggins headline) and it would remove the ambiguity by not allowing for the possibility that it may be UK Government policy say?

    May's approach is absolutely right here, and I say that as a Brexit voter. We need time to consider what we want from talks and we don't want to reveal our hand. In addition, I think Cameron was very quick at times to promise grand visions only to deliver very little (e.g. his EU renegotiations). By taking this approach, May can carefully formulate a plan and doesn't risk disappointing voters in the same way Cameron often did, although that's not to say that she won't disappoint some people.
