I’m still wondering who he is. Perhaps Les Bean can tell me as he posted the link?
He's a journalist.
"Tim spent 10 years till 2014, editing the Telegraph’s diary column and wrote diaries for the Mirror during the last two elections."
Thank you Oxford boy, appreciate the reply.

Oh Jim, BOTH sides have been subjected to name calling, it’s not the domain of Leave voters, Remainers have been equally as disgusting in their remarks, including some on here.

Re: Light at the end of Boris' dark tunnel?

No Jim what you wrote was incorrect. I asked”Did they win more seats than any other party? and you replied with “NO they didn't win more seats” Again, fairly clear to me. Remained logic at work again it seems.

Re: Light at the end of Boris' dark tunnel?

Alan You repeatedly put forward your argument about the democratic vote but by your own argument in 2015 the Conservatives only received 36.9 of the vote but took power and then implemented the referendum even though a majority of 63.1 voted against them. Since 2009 the same party has been trying t...

Alan I agree a majority advised the government they wished to leave the EU but that's all it was, advice. If I asked you for advice it would then be up to me to decide whether to act on it or not.

Re: Light at the end of Boris' dark tunnel?

Democracy isnt a one-vote, final decision. That’s why parliament often takes votes, passes to the Lord’s, they amend, send back to commons, then vote on the amended law.

Re: Light at the end of Boris' dark tunnel?

The vote was Remain or leave. Very simple. Where is your proof that leave voters imagined anything? I really hope they were imagining something,rather than just on a whim,or coin toss😀 Try asking them rather than making things up to suit your point of view. Always better to do that rather than ascr...
