A coup ! Tell it how it is

Opinion? More bedwetting

It isn't a national unity government. Can we stop peddling this lie. It is a remain coup designed to kill off brexit now we actually are getting close to leaving.

Why are they so afraid of elections?

NONSENSE KEN... so you and Corbyn want the same thing for a very “short” time, “a PM status”,as you would never achieve that anyother way. No doubt you would have Guy Fawkes Greives and the SNP as your assistants....🤭

The majority of European countries have governments made up of more than one party. It's not an inherently bad thing.

Majority of MPs now support fresh Brexit referendum, Dominic Grieve saysFormer Tory cabinet minister says Jeremy Corbyn should 'step up to the mark' and prioritise second Brexit poll ahead of general election I was initially against having referendum before election,know I believe it’s the only way. Have a mandate election offering leave with deal,leave without desk or revoke art 50. The result to be implemented safely by new gov. A following election could then be on future. Dominic Grieve would do well to remember that we had our referendum in 2016 and 17.4 m voted to leave. It is irrelevant that some MPs want another vote. Accept the democratic result of 2016. They very well may but it’s the voters that count
