    Why? We voted a party in to lead us and make decisions. Why all the ****ing debate - just let them get on with it. Seems like some people want them to drive the vehicle but with an extra hand on the steering wheel. When it crashes, just let go, disappear and blame them.

    No. Just standard democracy.

    Biggest party call the shots. The people voted them in, now let them do their job. If the people don’t like it, vote them out next time round.

    The party is not the same as the government. The party is having no say.

    Ah, I get it...

    A party with a 'majority' but voted for by a minority of the voters...

    A government that puts in an 'enabling act' which gives them unlimited powers in certain areas without reference to parliament...

    Do you realise the historical aspect of your beliefs?

    Did you witness a different election and massive Tory win to what everyone else did?

    Edit: Oh, I see, you didn’t like that result either? Wattchgunnadoaboutit? Don’t make any idle promises you won’t honour. ;)

    Now old chap, you know it’s not votes but seats that win an election. Don’t be so silly. Anyway, stop taking this thread off subject otherwise I’ll have to have a squeal up.

    nothing whatsoever to do with ‘what’s your view on the latest coronavirus briefing’ is it!
    some people only have one agenda.
