Re: In or out?

The three big lies we were told that led to Brexit, the most damaging lie of all The first lie was austerity. Politicians, but also the media, told us the government had to cut spending to prevent another financial disaster. Most economists disagreed with this theory. There was never even a chance ...

Re: The movement for Proportional Representation for UK elections

Re: The movement for Proportional Representation for UK elections

No UK party has received a majority of votes since 1931. The Conservative Party is a minority party. The Labour Party is a minority party. All UK parties are minority parties. Why should a minority be allowed to govern all of us alone? #ChangeTheVotingSystem https://twitter.com/MakeVotesMatter/stat...

Re: In or out?

Finally, it's the end of May. Theresa May announced her resignation as prime minister in the same way she began her term: with the expression of political values she did precisely nothing to promote. It was a bookend speech, almost identical in its vision to the one she made when she first entered D...

Re: The movement for Proportional Representation for UK elections

When a party gains votes, it should win more seats. When a party loses votes, it should win fewer seats. But with our First Past the Post voting system, often it's the other way round. That's why we need to #ChangeTheVotingSystem to Proportional Representation. https://twitter.com/MakeVotesMatter/s...

Re: Genetic testing

Not done it and unlikely to. There are far too many unknowns at the moment to make any reliable predictions and false positive rate too high.
