Unless one has a keen interest in the science of politics, as I've repeatedly said,  people are generally guided by personal experience;  i.e. if you're a bus driver and a political party intends to cap public transport, quite understandably you wouldn't vote for that party.  Or to use the time worn platitude - if you're a turkey you don't vote for Christmas.

I've worked alongside small time politicians (as in not in the House of Commons/Lords), I wouldn't trust a single one further than I could thrown them.  In fairness, the Tory members were all in full-time employment if not retired, the Labour members however were invariably unemployed by preference, devoting their entire existence in pursuance of political advancement - and if I might add, were open to corruption and favoured ethnic nepotism.  Bit hypocritical when you consider what they preach!

Also from personal experience, the trade union representatives were the devil incarnate, mostly employed and paid as tradesmen but never did a days work from one year to the next - all day every day spent in the local greasy spoon discussing the tea, the chip butty and the next ruse to bugger-up management.    

Such is life.!  Not a healthy subject to discuss outside the political arena in my opinion.

Wonder if ever on board 'the spirit of freedom' with that other Cur wosname - err .. Tedward Heath, that's the name.  The yachting fraternity tend to be cut from the same cloth - plenty of disposable cash but no morals!

Had another read of your earlier post.  Whenever the filthy rich are spoken of, it invariably refers directly to royalty, media magnates and politicians - to my way of thinking, sports persons, television personalities, movie stars, pop stars are equally culpable.  In some respects even doctors!

Sad to say I have mentioned this before, Tony is a champion of many causes and has fought so many corners. I do however think that this forum is for Madeleine issues and as such we should stick to that in here. We have many other areas on the net for other issues and I believe these should be discussed there.

Over the last few days there have been very few posts on this forum, and I believe that this is down to the lack of any NEW information on Madeleine McCann case. Those of us who have been here since 2007, first on the Mirror Forum,  then Three Arguidos, and now the CMOMM, find it tedious  discussing the same information over and over, and going round in circles.  So, at this moment in time, when there is very little, if anything, being release on the McCann saga, other topics ARE needed to keep members interested, and keep them returning to the forum.  Otherwise, people will simple drift away and may not return. However, the titles of the threads are good indications of what is being discussed on a particular thread, and on a personal note, I don’t read threads that I don’t have a particular interest in.

 
However, I would never suggest that other threads shouldn’t exist, just because, in general, the forum is about Madeleine McCann. If it wasn’t for the political threads during this period ,where there is a lack of new information on Madeleine McCann, I would probably go and do other things. So, if you aren’t interested in the political threads, then please don’t read them, but let those who enjoy it continue to have an outlet.

Well said there Sallypelt,

I'd like to add by saying it's strange how someone who posts 7 times in just short of 3 years chips in to have their say on how this forum is run. The political section is the political section. Tony has already replied to criticism from 'justabout' but obviously his post has been conveniently ignored. Most forums concerning Madeleine have sections for debate on other topics - even the pro forums.

Thanks for your major contribution in the Madeleine case Zoodle it has been less than valuable/remarkable/interesting.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, plenty of other threads to keep you reading and contributing.   Look forward to reading your thoughts on those other threads.

Who is left to vote for? The Labour Party are washing their dirty laundry in public because they can't decide what a socialist party is, the Liberal Party are nowhere to be seen because they can't decide which party's duvet is the snuggest, UKIP have lost their figurehead Farage and are keeping quiet at the moment because there's a strong possibility the Tories can absorb them into some form of alliance in the near future. The Tory Party is in situ and doesn't really know what to do.  The SNP are behaving like petulant, militant teenagers.

It's politics and has nothing to do with the referendum that voted 'Leave' - except for the fact it has EVERYTHING to do with a Leave vote.

Leave the EU means leave the EU.

Keep your eye on the ball to see British democracy at it's very worst.

Open borders still open? Hell yes.

Anyone doing anything about it? Hell no.

Borders still open, money still being poured into the EU daily.  MEPs still in their jobs taking the money and expenses for a job they do not want to be doing (supposedly).

We should be out of EU now that's what we voted for - not in 2019.   It is ridiculous.  Why are the Leave politicians going along with it? 

Is it too late for Tony to set up a real Peoples Party in time for the next gen. election.   They would win hands down I reckon.

Bo Jo serving alongside Rudd.  Who would have thought it.

Why don't I believe that they all have OUR best interests at heart?

Why didn't every MEP resign from the EU on a UK referendum vote?

The vote was clear.

'Do business with us on our terms and not yours' was what the UK voted.

Why are MEP's still in situ? I'm sure the EU would come knocking at the door of UK to speak to us.

Why didn't they resign indeed - nice little earner for the next 2 years I would guess.

How can this country be taken seriously when our MEPs are still there taking OUR money when they so want to leave the EU?  

Nothing has changed and nothing will change.

It was reported online that Teflon Terri has been told that maybe the immigration numbers could be reduced at some point if we decide we have made a mistake and really want to stay in the EU.   Whether there's anything in that I don't know but it certainly would not surprise me.

Here's a novel thought about the influx of muslim refugees/asylum seekers. Send them to Saudi Arabia to be cared for. This would be Saudi Arabia that employs thousands of people from around the world on tax free inducement - only those who have skills necessary to their country of course - what a luxury!

Tell Saudi Arabia to take care of its muslim brothers, talk to its muslim neighbours and take responsibility for their displaced brethren.

I doubt many displaced muslims from around the world would be queuing up to get into Saudi Arabia.

33 days 15 hours since the British people voted to leave.

https://days.to/since/uk-european-union-referendum-vote

Action by Government so far.... Theresa May "there's no rush" and NOTHING....

I find Nigel Farage standing down very strange. I wonder if pressure has been applied.

In my heart I believe this regime will not allow us to leave. They are waiting for a "compelling" reason to cancel it.

I think they thought they'd win the referendum by hook or by crook (the crook not being big enough) and were taken by surprise. 

Plan B.

Stall and let things happen.

Has a single UK MEP resigned from the EU? Hell no.

Nigel hasn't.

This was his finest hour and he called it 'independence day', except it's not. Nigel Farage stepped down from UKIP and is still taking a salary from the EU.

The decent thing to do was to withdraw UK MEP's from the EU on the result of a referendum. The decent thing for UK MEP's to do was to resign. Neither happened.

What has happened is some form of seriously pathetic mitigation/transition process which will take years to 'negotiate' and is likely to produce little change.

Withdrawal from the EU by MEP's on a referendum vote was the correct message to send to the electorate. It didn't happen.

It's not a case of taking your ball back and playing in your own garden. It's a case of doing the best for Britain and doing the will of the voters. There's no point to me in staying and listening to endless debate. For anyone who's ever had a divorce and it drags on and on in the hope we can be nice to each other it still ends up in the same position.

Negotiations would be far better served if UK MEP's were withdrawn from the EU with immediate effect.

Last I heard we hadn't left the EU.

Wait and see.

At the moment he can still stand in the EU parliament and rip them to bits (as he usually does).

Farage has withdrawn himself from UKIP. Why is he still in the EU as an MEP? Why are any of UK MEP's still sitting in the EU taking a salary and various perks?

Why didn't UK MEP's comply with a referendum vote and withdraw themselves?

Is it because 'you have to be in it to win it' mentality or is it because they just don't give a damn.

The UK would fare better with the immediate withdrawal of UK MEP's.

According to Farage the EU is an absolute farce. Why is he still sitting there for the next two years?

Why doesn't Farage call for immediate withdrawal?

The only way to deal with the referendum vote is to withdraw from the EU parliamentary sessions. For goodness' sake if it's so bad (and it is)  then it's best to walk away and negotiate on your own turf.

I realise I'd never make a diplomat but quite honestly there is no reason I can see why UK MEP's can justify their stay in the EU. Total resignation would be a resounding change and would change the course of negotiation. We don't need to be 'in it to win it' we were already in it and it didn't work. The EU has been an abusive process for each and every country involved.

The best thing UK can do is to withdraw its MEP's from Europe in my opinion.

Farage has withdrawn himself from UKIP. Why is he still in the EU as an MEP? Why are any of UK MEP's still sitting in the EU taking a salary and various perks?

Why didn't UK MEP's comply with a referendum vote and withdraw themselves?

Is it because 'you have to be in it to win it' mentality or is it because they just don't give a damn.

The UK would fare better with the immediate withdrawal of UK MEP's.

According to Farage the EU is an absolute farce. Why is he still sitting there for the next two years?

Why doesn't Farage call for immediate withdrawal?

The only way to deal with the referendum vote is to withdraw from the EU parliamentary sessions. For goodness' sake if it's so bad (and it is)  then it's best to walk away and negotiate on your own turf.

I realise I'd never make a diplomat but quite honestly there is no reason I can see why UK MEP's can justify their stay in the EU. Total resignation would be a resounding change and would change the course of negotiation. We don't need to be 'in it to win it' we were already in it and it didn't work. The EU has been an abusive process for each and every country involved.

The best thing UK can do is to withdraw its MEP's from Europe in my opinion.
We haven't left yet.

The war is not over.

It's far from over.

As you must be aware.

So you want UKIP to unilaterally disarm?

Good question.

The finest British orator for many a year.

Powder dry?

We should be out of EU now that's what we voted for - not in 2019.   It is ridiculous.  Why are the Leave politicians going along with it? 

Is it too late for Tony to set up a real Peoples Party in time for the next gen. election.   They would win hands down I reckon.

Bo Jo serving alongside Rudd.  Who would have thought it.

Why don't I believe that they all have OUR best interests at heart?
Why didn't every MEP resign from the EU on a UK referendum vote?

The vote was clear.

'Do business with us on our terms and not yours' was what the UK voted.

Why are MEP's still in situ? I'm sure the EU would come knocking at the door of UK to speak to us.
Why didn't they resign indeed - nice little earner for the next 2 years I would guess.

How can this country be taken seriously when our MEPs are still there taking OUR money when they so want to leave the EU?  

Nothing has changed and nothing will change.

It was reported online that Teflon Terri has been told that maybe the immigration numbers could be reduced at some point if we decide we have made a mistake and really want to stay in the EU.   Whether there's anything in that I don't know but it certainly would not surprise me.
Here's a novel thought about the influx of muslim refugees/asylum seekers. Send them to Saudi Arabia to be cared for. This would be Saudi Arabia that employs thousands of people from around the world on tax free inducement - only those who have skills necessary to their country of course - what a luxury!

Tell Saudi Arabia to take care of its muslim brothers, talk to its muslim neighbours and take responsibility for their displaced brethren.

I doubt many displaced muslims from around the world would be queuing up to get into Saudi Arabia.

As I understand things the Saudi tent city is to accommodate muslims who make the annual pilgrimage to Mecca. It has nothing to do with absorbing, offering alms to displaced people within the region.
