    Brexit 2019

    The problem you have is your position is undeliverable. Brexit cannot be dealt with in anyway that brings the two sides together, simply because it's options are poles apart. One group or the other has to be upset, or in the worst of all outcomes, both sides are upset. As to who the arrogant side are, you claim it is brexiteers that are the arrogant ones, whereas brexiteers simply want the result of the democratic vote to be implemented. It is not brexiteers who have constantly stated that, you didn't know what you were voting for, it is the remainers, that is arrogance on an epic scale. It's not brexiteers that want a second referendum, a people's vote or a confirmatory referendum, or whatever the latest catch phrase is for undoing the Brexit result. It is remainers, yet more arrogance. So the majority is now remain is it, my my you must have an awfully good crystal ball. I don't suppose you can look up the next weeks lottery numbers could you.

    What confirms to me how much Boris is the right person for PM, is the effort remainers, lefties and liberals are trying their utmost to damage him. They will fail.

    I think a break up was increasingly likely ever since Blair gave them a devolved parliament. Personally I think that was a mistake, and whilst they could have been given more control over some of their affairs, it should been far more restrictive and limited. It does however pose an interesting issue. If Brexit is thwarted, how will the SNP pursue their independence dream, knowing full well if they achieve it, they will have to leave the eu. If on the other hand Brexit is delivered and Scotland are out of the eu, how will Scotland feel about a further separation from the UK, with no immediate prospect of rejoining the eu as an independent country. It would be very lonely out there for an independent Scotland, with hard borders between both its main trading partners, an virtually no oil left.

    I think it has always been an unwritten but accepted practice, that issues such as these are decided on a generational basis, and that it is perfectly reasonable to revisit them at such intervals. It is not however acceptable to have a vote, then decide a couple of years later to have another go, just because the first one did not go your way.

    Not really as it was a couple of generations ago. No problem with the Scots having another say in another twenty years, or indeed another vote to rejoin the eu if that is what the population want.

    Well the choice is in their hands, though personally I would not allow them another vote, they had one and made their choice, now, where have I heard that before.

    I wish I could live on your cloud, Cor bins Labour Party, centre left, dream on. As to Scotland leaving I doubt it, can you imagine unpicking 300 years, when they haven't been able to unpick 40. But if they do, I can have a blue English passport and a red Scottish eu one, if they are allowed back in, happy days. I wonder how the hard border between England and Scotland will go down, north of the border.

    It only takes one, and that is all the justification he would need to take the action he did.

    You can't possibly say that. Given all the talk lately about throwing acid or other substances, and the fact that she was the only one making her way to the front of the stage where the main speakers were, who knows what she would do, therefore if that was the threat he perceived, his actions would have been perfectly lawful, and the only ones complaining are the usual left wing liberals, who want to make mischief. I don't recall seeing a male protester in his vicinity, therefore not surprising really that he didn't grab one is it.

    In a nutshell, yes, however as you wish to dicuss extremes, I suspect a defence by such an individual would be based on diminished responsibility. The relevant law is sec 3 criminal law act, learnt off by heart by firearms officers, which is largely why they are very rarely prosecuted, even if the person shot was unarmed.

    That's not quite right. Only the force used needs to be reasonable in the circumstances, the belief, is what the individual feels, so long as it is honestly held. It has to be this way, as one persons view of a threat, is likely to be different to another's, but it would still be legal for one person to act to a perceived threat, whereas the other person may not, because they perceived it differently.

    In answer to your question about a threatening looking caller, then yes you could punch him in the face, if you had an honestly held belief that you were in at risk of an assault. The issue is not whether you would be assaulted, but whether you believed you would. Therefore if Field believed this woman was a potential risk, then he was quite within his rights to stop her. The problem is we have molly coddled these protesters for so long, that when someone takes robust action, there are wails of protest.

    Doubt it, low level street dealing hasn't been a police priority for years.

    Brexit 2019

    Whilst some of what you say is correct, the police are not blameless in all of this. For at least the past twenty years, there has been an incessant push to 'educate' the police in all the snowflakery stuff. So much so, that being a good copper is no longer enough to be promoted, you now need to go on special courses, to be indoctrinated with the latest buzz words, and PC behaviour. The bottom line is, if you are just a regular law abiding member of the public, and a lower level crime is committed against you, they ain't interested. If however you are fortunate to be from one of the special protected groups, plod will be falling over themselves dealing with your issue, no matter how piffleing. So the moral of the story, in this age of fluidity, is if you want plod to act on your complaint, you have to engineer the issue into a 'hate' crime. It's quite easy really, it seems that its quite acceptable to consider yourself male one minute and female the next. There is no limit on the amount of times you can flip flop, and clearly the crime must have been committed against you because of your confusion. Age is also a protected characteristic, but it seems not one that plod are that interested in yet. Clearly the old people haven't got a vociferous focus group pushing their agenda yet. One final point, plod does not tend to demote its incompetent officers, unlike the military. This results in officers being promoted to the level at which they become incompetent, and are then left there, out of their depth, making stupid decisions. Still once Brexit is sorted.......

    I voted for her, on all three occasions. Everything began going downhill, when the wets in her party stabbed her in the back. That's when we ended up with the architect of today's problem. John Major signing us into the eu, without asking us. To busy shafting Edwina to worry about shafting the country.
