Coffee, you could at least have the courtesy to respond to Alan and to watch things like the video which do not just let you stay in in your comfort zone by confirming the stuff you would like to believe is true. Such as: the ...

Re: In or out?

As I said to my MP, the execrable Barry Gardiner, a People's Vote is not a re-run of the referendum, but a vote on what has been negotiated. Here's my full response to a dreadful previous reply from him: Barry Thank you for your email. I have no doubt that a plethora of PhDs will in future years be...

Re: The movement for Proportional Representation for UK elections

May to urge MPs not to 'break faith with the people' by calling for another referendum Confirmation that Brexit is a religion? It certainly has many of the hallmarks of a cult.
