    What do you think when Scotland independently legislates for it? The irony is that Scotland has more lenient rules than E&W but the SNP will block any liberalisation of the rules just because they want to poss people off. I think NI independently legislate too

    While this is the case, I don't believe it prevents the SNP from voting on it and indeed they threatened to do so last year?

    Which is why the first order if business should be to do EVEL properly with a strict three line whip.

    I had assumed that Milo referred to Milo Yiannopoulos.

    I agree with Blair in that if the public moves shifts when we find out what we voted for, another referendum is justified. If 90% of people changed their minds and wanted to stay it would be undemocratic not to allow another vote.

    I had assumed that Milo referred to Milos Raonic who win his Wimbledon semi-final yesterday.
    Why would I put Milo rather than Milos, and pit him against Farage and Trump?

    Instead 3% of leavers want to vite remain in a second referendum, and 4% of remain to vote leave.

    EVEL is not a thing. There are no laws which solely affect England because England does not have devolved funding.

    I agree atm there isn't such a mandate.

    But when free movement has to stay anyway in order for us to get an inferior trade deal (the best option available to us) i think a few people might change their minds.

    Parliamentary time has a cost, as does time in the courts etc.

    I wasn't sure if it was an elaborate troll on their part.

    Still not seeing an 'English law' which doesn't impose at least some costs on the exchequer.

    While not specifically an English law, how exactly does, say, the reduction in age of consent cost the exchequer?

    The AMS system is better that FPTP in my view, but STV (Irish method of electing the Dail) is better still. *You can have an individual MP of one party replaced at an election by one of the same party, because that person is preferred. *I also think under STV with multi-member constituencies there would be a wider range of MPs elected and more with a local link to the area.
    STV does take a very long time to count the votes though. Its real disadvantage (other than having a huge number of candidates on a ballot paper) is its inefficiency.

    Trident vote on the 18th, I wonder if this was decoded before or after Eagle said she was formally challenging Corbyn on Monday?

    Leadsom reportedly is claiming she would try to repeal the hunting Act, well, she's now got my support and that's the sort of thing that could win her the leadership if May doesn't counter
    Yeah! I mean she has questionable views towards homosexuals, single parents, the environment. And she seems very confused when it comes to the economy not to mention her own career before politics.

    All that doesn't matter when she seems likely to let me send a pack of dogs to tear a fox to pieces!

    Tories... they're so funny.*

    Regardless, it's perfectly set up for another Corbynite v Blairite split.

    I wonder if any labour voters long for the relative unity of the Miliband era?
