Not content with nearly 'loosing' Scotland via a glib 'this will fix it' referendum he assumed he couldnt lose, he did the same thing with all our futures - all because of his own ego and career ambitions. Its patently obvious he didnt think he could possibly lose that referendum either - he built no buffer into the result to protect us from a tiny majority either way. I have yet to hear any sense of apology from him for sparking this chaos and division. The man is beneath contempt.
Correct! I said this was the case even before we voted. Conservatives have played party politics with no thought to what to do if we actually want to leave. I personally hold the Conservative party led by David Cameron 100% responsible for the complete mess they have created since they gained office. I personally believe they have excelled themselves in complete economic incompetence on the scale which makes the global 2007 banking crisis look like a drunken nights stag doo spend on credit cards in comparison.
I predicted in 2015 that the Tories could cause unfixable damage to the country when Miliband got rejected, which was a huge mistake by the British electorate. If we voted for Miliband we would be in totally different country now I didn't think I would be proven to be as correct as I have been.
However Miliband was rejected by the people because he did not play political games. Very much the first to put his gun down on the battlefield and he got shot. Miliband would not have played politics like Corbyn. Even in opposition today he would have worked with May to get a solution.
Unfortunately both parties are playing party politics as opposed to looking after and/or trying to sort out the bigger issue which is bigger than labour tory differences. I was a member of the Labour Party I'm not now directly because of current direction on forigen trade relations, the involvement of Abbott in shadow cabinet.
So draw your own conclusions on my views of Labour. However as much as I do not believe in labour's approach to Brexit It is the whole of Parliament that is damaging british poltics.
If there is a general election before Brexit, I simply don't know who I'd vote for. Let's hope there is not, let's hope we leave with no deal and l hope it does cause short term pain, because I believe that we the British people can do anything. We will start manufacturing things again, we will gain trade deals with other countries in the end, that's a given but being so reliant on forigen food, goods and labour is not and cannot be good for the UK. That's (in my eyes) why we are in increasing debt, every pound we spend in Starbucks, burger King, Costa takes money out of the UK and into offshore bank accounts for the corporate elite whom fund the tories, and the EU is actively doing very little encourage manufactureing in the UK. Every pound spent on local food, from local manufacturers and small businesses boosts the economy by continued investment in our own country. We simply must invest in our own country if we are going to ever get out of debt.
Quite and we are unlikely to either, what we are sleepwalking too is BINO so two years down the line they can blame everything bad on leaving when in reality we never really left in any meaningful way.

I think he is the greatest political failure in history, he never won his own seat.
I think there is a good space for an uprising against the establishment. I think Anna's recent teddy bear throwing over the bit of verbal she got on national TV only goes to show how the political elite veiw themselves vs ordinary people. The problem they are not thinking about Is the wording of the possible legislation, its a very grey area, no one bats an eye lid when Nigel gets his car smashed up by pro remainer protesters. Then there is the more sinister the likes of Anjem Choudary and Tommy Robinson could also claim abuse that the police don't take seriously and neither do the political elite either? Maybe slightly off topic but it all links because all of this fuels the fire of distain towards the establishment but its a highly dangerous road and one which can take a turn towards some place nobody wants to travel very quickly.
The problem I have is as much as I am angry at our main partyies for their betrayal, there are other issues other than Brexit which need to be taken into consideration when picking a government. Where will the new party stand on these other issues, like progressive taxation for example
