Not for long if there is an election ,they will be the majority 

There is a simple path for johnson to travel if he wishes to test that prediction.

Deliver a deal or an extension, it's quite simple what johnson must do if he wants an election.

An election will be allowed once certain conditions have been met?

 

I am reluctant to draw the comparison, but a number of posters on TVF (you and me both perhaps) commented unfavourably on the reluctance of the previous government here in Thailand to allow an election until certain parameters had been established and conditions met. It is not a direct comparison, nevertheless...

He cares about his country.  She will feel the same I'm sure, but she has no choice over this.  She should send some people to The Tower.  It's been a while since we have had a public execution and Cummings would definitely cry for the crowd.  Boris too.

Ahh, Remainers...

Perhaps an election is needed then - to establish a government as it were?

The Queen's speech sets out the legislative plans and agenda for the government in the new Parliament session. The size of majority, or lack of, is irrelevant to this speech.

The Queens speech is irreverent anyway, wast of her time, wast of money for the days pomp and ceremonies that will be repeated in a few weeks when we rid ourselves of this incompetent Tory ERG government and Buffoon of a PM...

Not all voters have a photo ID. 

 

 

Not having a photo ID is a barrier to those people exercising their vote.

They can always have a postal vote, only one person from the extended family (or neighbourhood for that matter) need be bothered to actually vote then....

Or at least, so you allege.

What? No desperate, last-ditch Remainer's clamour for a people's vote to ratify the deal?

 

Hold on till I get my tape recorder.

Who wants more months in limbo while a new referendum is set up...

 

Stop wasting time...

 

Revoke Article 50 now.

Dream on! It isn't and will never be Scotland's unilateral decision. Only the whole UK can make a decision that affects the whole of the UK. 

 

Tail wagging the dog doesn't work when push comes to shove.

 

What a bizarre concept where a minor (or as you say, tail end) part of a union needs the support of the majority of its significantly larger 'partner' to leave a pact. The UK is free to go on as it wishes, we simply don't want to be part of it.

"The UK is doomed" ,how many times has that been said , we always rise above it and win .

Do 'we'? What have 'we' won, because more than half the voters in Scotland don't feel like winners at the moment?

The only thing I will say, is that I don't think England should subsidise them once they are independent - but that is an argument for another day.

I am not aware of anyone suggesting otherwise - that would not sit well with most peoples' definition of independence.

Article 51 of the Vienna Convention on the treaty of treaties would seem to neuter the Benn act; along with Bliar's Civil Contingencies Act in reserve...

Is the implication re: Article 51 that the 'threat' of legal consequences against the PM should he not send the letter is sufficient to invalidate the letter because he would be acting under duress?

I can see also issue with people not being able to to vote because they can not find their passport or driving licence on polling day...

 

Maybe a machine that scans your polling card, records a finger print, and records the security number of the ballot paper(s) issued, if you do not have your polling card the residing officer can enter ones polling number manually.

 

With fingerprints only taken and stored for use if required in the event of voter fraud investigations.
