    Has Broon forgotten WHY Blair was able to get a yes vote through Parliament?
     
  2. So what happens when a British colony is attacked out of the blue without warning? Would the RM garrison at Stanley ahve had to sit on their hands waiting for the politico's to stop wrining theres?

    The start of a war seems like a time for decisive top down leadership to me, not for debate and consensus.

    Arrse.

  3. Another leftie move to diminish the role of the Crown in Parliament I think, these things are never as obviious as they first seem especially when Broon is the source. He's obviously positioning himself for the handover in 18mths time and the Socialist wonderland that will follow.
    Personally I think the Prime Minister should be able to go on his/her own say so and then take what ever s**t follows where appropriate. Decisiveness is all!!
     
  4. I thought the idea was that the Govt made War but Parliament had to agree to fund it? Thus there could be a rapid reaction to genuine threats but no long term action without support.

    There goes another tried and tested tradition.
     
  5. Time for this I believe:

    Military Junta
     
  6. Brown positioning himself for the fuhrers role? :wink:
