    It is not unconstitutional, and the ruling was made that an amendment should be brought to clarify the situation. The amendment resulted in a tie, and there is a strong argument that a mass PM should be sent next election (and if this doesn't happen, the amendment next term will read 'A mass PM may not be sent' so a tie results in one being sent).
    Ummmmm, so care to point out ANY precedent that a tie is affirmative given ALL the precedent is to the contrary...

    The decision made was that there is no clear rule and it needs to be clarified by amednment. After a tie, it is still unclear, there is still no clear rule - and if this is rejected, and it is held that the rejection of the amendment settled the point for this term, then it necessarily follows that a rejection of an amendment worded the opposite way would lead to the opposite result.

    The Tories overestimated the extent of the ruling IMO. It was very clearly not a 'the mass PM is unconstitutional' ruling, but an 'I'm suspending judgment until I've seen an amendment' ruling.

    Lol, in an eastern European accent too:lol:

    Maybe you're right. Even if one party had one it would be nice though tbh, I'm sure that isn't beyond the capabilities of the House.

    If the authorities are correct then the media are relieved from hiding details about the perpetrator and can stick with being bought off by the democrats. On the other hand, I wouldn't be surprised if they said a gas explosion even if they thought terrorism based on the last few days

    I think a Labour Party meet would be really nice. Hopefully one might be able to take place in the next few years.

    It would be just about geographically feasible (unlike a Socialist one)so yes, hopefully

    I imagine a meet would end in a massive argument.

    People like to ignore the fact that you can get from almost anywhere to London pretty easily, and by extension to any other even mildly significant place.

    Usually takes a fair amount of money and planning though, although I suppose that's a given.

    Doesn't take that much money, and planning is a given. Those for whom the travel is "expensive" can easily find a cheap hotel and make a weekend out of it. It's hardly rocket science.

    I wish that were true- ask anyone living in mid-Wales or who uses Southern trains and they would disagree. Lucky me in Barnet has a reliable tube and bus service.

    Probably the best argument for accepting Brexit I've seen (though I would still reject it because democracy isn't intrinsically valuable).

    So it turns out the machete wielding loon yesterday was already know for bodily harm, so why was he even still in Germany?
