Yes, but the government decided to sit for two years instead of one, so wouldn't it be more natural for him to resign at the end of the current session next year, rather than half way through?

There is a simple, popular, practical, democratic solution to the Brexit border impasse. The citizens of Northern Ireland should be given the option to vote for their own future.

Yes, I think so. He's about done his nine years.

Did he really say "North Sea" or is it a reporting error over at Politics Live?

Hitting back at arch-Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg, who accused the Lords of “playing with fire” by inflicting Brexit defeats, Lord Patten warned: “I'll tell you what playing with fire is - blundering into Northern Ireland with a policy which is clueless and deluded with a can of petrol and a box of matches in the other hand.”

Well good for Lord Patten

There really is something wrong with assessing primary schools when this happens.

Today my daughter’s headteacher told her class that the next 2 weeks are the most important ones of their lives. Not the daughter who is taking GCSEs, the one who’s doing her SATs.


:roll:

Ours are simply told "It's just a test. Show what you can do - and do your best"

@Willow,with respect not so much duty of care to the "needy".Historical amnesia abounds we have never adequately funded deinstititutionism in the broadest sense including otherwise in hospital treatments,it is an independent living issue.The fascistic message is clear you shouldn't be in your own home.

Possibly think vast cost saving investment in extra costs allowance,subject to circumstance.I repeat half way to one dialysis session a week.equivalent.Or,I should have got paid and/or other people charged "in fairness" for overseeing dialysis,taking bloods,injections,ordering stock etc.

Needless to say, IMHO,far from even a pretence of being Christian,the Governmental.false portrayal.is evil.
