Question Time Commentary

It ran on late as well

WTF is this? The into's are getting more bizarre each week. That's another two minutes wasted.
Would be worth getting JRM on for the intro alone!
 
Didn't know much about Grieve, other than his wingey simpering regarding Brexit, so had a look at his history.

Lawyer specialising in Health & Safety.

Explains so much.
 
Grieve smiling at Portillo's analysis that it only takes on EU member to veto the extension. this would then force a vote and as no deal would be rejected, leave would be rejected by parliament.
 
The main problem is that Parliiament reflects the country in that BREXIT, and the question of Europe in general, do not neatly follow party political lines. However, the party leaders (among others) try to pretend they do. The issue is just too divisive.

I remain convinced that such important decisions as this, with such long-term consequences, should require a two-thirds majority.
Since the referendum - which was a vote and, therefore, by definition divisive - I have said several times the problem is that politicians and commentators did not seem to understand that so-called traditional British politics had been turned on their head: it was no longer a case of Right v Left, political dogma, vote for the rosette, and so on.
I don't include all politicians in that description, just the professional political class - where 'professional' is used in the same sense as one would say a 'professional lady of the street'.

...and the national interest gets lost in the shuffle.
 
Oh no, they're trotting out that Greek former finance minister again. He must be on speed dial.
You'd think they'd get his missus on, she's the one that came from Greece with a thirst for knowledge

Strange she ended up with the finance minister, after all, she said she wants to live with common people
