Brecon by-election today

Conservatives won it by quite a bit at the last election, but this by-election is happening due to the MP being convicted of false expense claims.

PC & Greens have agreed to not stand and are encouraging their usual voters to vote LibDem if they are against Brexit.

New PM 'bounce' to help the Tories, or a convicted MP and an anti brexit alliance between 3 parties to hinder them? Would be quite a statement if the LibDem's did manage to take this seat from the Tories.

Lib Dems take Brecon 8O

This leaves the Tory working majority at just 1

Labour 4th behind Brexit party! Good grief!
Tories decided to re-field the same guy, the one who had been convicted of expenses fraud... is that some arrogance or what?
I may move to Scotland once they've gained independence.

I would say there aren't as many as there used to be.
He will never be PM.

I'm all for Jesus Christ but I think the smear campaigns have been successful so you're probably right :roll:

The bi election was basically a referendum but with only one side taking part. They had the Welsh nationalists/f brexit anti-democrars and greens all on one ticket. Then on the other side they had Tories with a convicted criminal standing and the brexit party. Then Labour who don't have a policy that any human can understand.

Yeah, Labour are about as unelectable as a necrotic septic think tank in all seasons and weather, come what May!
I'd rather see the benchmark being laid out thinly for Mr Farage and let the continuous eyeballing motor mouthing gestures do all the talking than see a dirty Parliamentarian speaker get laid on thick with sterling price caps and with 'Block Brexit talk'. When is true democracy going to fight back and stop taking a back seat in anti election campaigning marches and actually arrange for Sturgeon Pinattas of J. C's head to get slammed into one?(Apolls for benign crude reference of a twice backdated Scottish mandate on backdated Parliamentary affairs).
If we can't say now, for the benefits of world peace we are having an orderly outcome for leaving the E.U, then now we can organise a new hun party clan for the new world hate charter, of Junky Brexit. To quote the late great Freddie Mercury, ''TOO MUCH Love will kILL YOU.'' The ''All for love'' Pro, National Trumpsters, would love to see the final outcome of how an Island can defeat Terrorism, and London Party Politics as well as defeat a Totalitarian organisation that is about to collapse like a Dominion Apocolpyse under what is most likely,''New Dawn part 3'', of a dysfunctional right wing Boris Brexit New Charter of the official establishment, under new order confirmation of Her Maj. And any calls for backpedalling on their new electorate would fall on ancestral deaf ears, as a Royal would never create further divisions in a sinkhole democracy. Haha, even if the shrinking national folds of inner doubt and unrest are put aside for treason.

I must say that from a constitutional and democracy point of view I find so much of the current speculation around British politics absolutely fascinating.

The current chit chat among a few MP's and some commentators about a potential 'government of unity' and how that could come about. Also I love reading up on how it would work legally if Johnson lost a VoNC next month but tried to stay on by refusing to resign, calling a GE and trying somehow not to break the Civil Service Code

Can't say politics is boring these days anyway! :lol:

The current chit-chat is about as lukewarm as a stand-off for another meltdown leadership contest or, stalling for a general election.

Europe won't be inviting us around for tea no more if we don't conform to the pesky Irish Crackstop, oh, I mean Backstop.

We all know what imports can do or can't do as well as exports, and Brussels have created a Brexit Hate Gang as part of extraditing us back to whence we came. I'm sure nobody wants to see another British ex-communion, take place in the battle of the lords when the deal that should pass is going to fall palm flat against parliamentary idealism. The truth of democracy lies in the real strength test, in regards to Boris, is it amicability, expansionism of ideas, forcing the iron Merkel's semi retired hand back out into the open, or is it time for another round of Golf on the Gleneagles putty ground?
The way I am looking at it, is a cleverly masked roulette wheel spinning round and round in cautious but straight set circles. The lines that cross over, are the ones in the rail conducting business, another tricky one to unpick if you want to go back through more failed tories, a predictive and never ending state pension age to counteract all the taxes that the public will surely feel, if the blackmail from European heads of state don't promote good will and freedom back across our shores. People don't want to reminisce , they want to get on with their lives, and get them to hurry the f**K up.
