    A useful little summary of the agreemant: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/world-...in-two-minutes

    The details of agreements like this often get ignored in the news reports - the mud slinging is much more interesting!!

    The woman is not (never was) fit to be PM.

    I think if she isn't removed PDQ, the Tories are going to see themselves a long time out of office.

    The last thing we need is Comrade Corbyn.

    I believe he'd be good for this country.

    In truth, I really can't make up my mind about him.

    Certainly, what we're doing isn't working, but can we really afford another experiment with the nation?

    I' ve almost watched him from the beginning and always believed in his policies when everyone over 40 called him a rebel teenager who never grew up, (as I was then even though I'm not sure I have quite grownup yet)and asked him to get in line with the fuddy duddies in any government we've ever had.
    And look what has happened.All these millionaires-all having been to Eton etc,telling us they understand the normal people and what they want.
    Like Marie Antionette saying--"let them eat cake if they have no bread"
    Nothing has changed, but I believe it would if he had a chance. It would not be easy given the crowd we have now but it could not be any worse.
    Whatever we get will be an experiment.

    The problem I have Cathi is that the policies and ideals I see coming from Labour have failed where they've been tried before. What would Corbyn and his team do differently?

    wE DON'T HEAR MUCH ABOUT WHAT HE IS DOING i ADMIT, BUT i BELIEVE HE LETS THE OTHERS GET ON WITH THE WRECKING business,staying in the sidelines and popping up when the time is right.
    I'd like him to be more 'out' but he has reasons we will find out about soon, I'm sure.
    What did we know about May's policies and ideals. She sure kept them hidden, even from her own party.
    Too secretive by half , that woman, and with too big a sense of her own power. However did her party allow her to be so.
    She is the one who has messed up Brexit from the beginning, going, even to the first EU meeting with a belligerent attitude.
    Even the remainers agree to that.

    I'm with Rebbonk on this one - Labour have too bad a track record for me to trust them, and Corbyn has too much of the '70s & early '80s hard left about him.

    CAN ANYONE REMEMBER A PARTY WITH A COMPLETELY GOOD TRACK RECORD?

    We either get 'THEM UP THERE'with bags of money who haven't a clue what its like to be a proletarian.
    or those 'down here' trying to get up there with 'them.'

    There are the occasional genuine 'do gooders' but they get nowhere.

    (that looks quite poetic.)

    Well, the PM's caved in; we'd have been better off staying in the EU: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-46330380

    I think she's sealed her own fate. I'll be very surprised if the calls/votes of no confidence don't materialise now.

    A truly despicable woman who has most definitely not had the country's interests at heart.

    I see her as a determined, spiteful woman who will do anything to get her own way.
    A remainer should never have been the person speaking for our country which voted to get out.
    She'll fight to the bitter end.

    She is certainly spiteful Cathi.

    I hope that this weekend's events have consigned her to history, and quickly!
