When it came time to press the brake the pedal would not depress as far as needed. Next thing major impact and a dead buddy. Not a flip flop, but the same thing happened to m...

I may not have liked the result but have accepted it because all in all they were usually carried out with integrity and honesty. The referendum on the other hand was corrupted by certain groups who were reported to...

Re: Petition against Boris's Plan

Maybe you should look up what representative democracy means. MPs aren´t delegates who have to accept orders from their constituencies. And for good reason. At least that´s what I learnt in school (in Germany though). And maybe you should look up what the Prime minister of the day, said when he ann...
