  1. Actually irrelevant I think, but 28 August 2019 Balmoral Castle The Queen held a Council at 12.30 p.m.. There were present: the Rt. Hon. Jacob Rees-Mogg MP (Lord President), the Baroness Evans of Bowes (Leader of the House of Lords and Lord Privy Seal) and the Rt. Hon. Mark Spencer MP (Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury and Chief Whip). Mr. Richard Tilbrook was in attendance as Clerk of the Council. The Rt. Hon. Jacob Rees-Mogg MP had an audience of Her Majesty before the Council.
  2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acts_of_Union_1800 "parallel acts of the Parliament of Great Britain and the Parliament of Ireland which united the Kingdom of Great Britain and the Kingdom of Ireland (previously in personal union) to create the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland"
  3. https://www.executiveoffice-ni.gov.uk/sites/default/files/publications/execoffice/Letter to PM from FM %26 dFM.pdf This was the joint position on Brexit of Foster and McGuinness as First Minister and Deputy First Minister in August. Nothing I've read in the last few days suggests the DUP stance now is greatly different to the soft position outlined then. Won't go down well with many Conservative MPs!
  4. Confidence and supply. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-2017-40236152
  5. AFAIK after 2 rounds of voting by MPs May was the only candidate left and became leader-elect well before September, there being no need for a membership vote?
  6. I don't think Ruth has the political maturity or experience (yet?). A few weeks ago she had her own embarrassing u-turn (prescription charges) http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-39913881 Her pre-emptive jumping in with both feet on the supposed DUP/LGBT question could be seen as a strange sense of priorities on which to urgently approach the PM the morning after the GE http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-40229826 Hard to see how she could become a UK MP, and I don't think her Brexit priorities are any more likely to unite the Conservative party than those of other contenders.
  7. In Scotland there are seats where large SNP majorities from 2015 over Labour were down to SNP holds with majorities under 100 (Glasgow SW, Glasgow E) and many more SNP/Lab contests where the SNP held on this week are now marginal. Similar stories where C or LD were/are challengers to the SNP. So in Scotland, Labour (as with the other "unionist" parties) must fancy their chances of more gains at the next GE. But even if Labour in Scotland did well in their new targets in a future GE and held their gains made this week, it wouldn't be nearly enough to get them over the line at Westminster. Do you think this week's election could have been peak labour in England (and/or Wales)?
  8. A third General Election count in Kensington will begin this evening, authorities have said. The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea said the recount would take place at 6pm. http://www.itv.com/news/london/2017-06-09/third-kensington-election-count-taking-place-tonight/
  9. Damian will be expecting to leave much more than £100,000. Also, if he is unfortunate enough to need care in the future, his retirement INCOME will likely cover his fees.
  10. Too sensible, go to the back of the class! Of course, it doesn't take too long to work out who wouldn't like this approach.
  11. The gov (whoever it happens to be) always seems to make annual capital out of announcing continuation of WFA. If it were abolished, or even formally consolidated into basic pension, a regular good news announcement wouldn't be there to use.
  12. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-34439965 He (Alex Wild) added: "If you did it now, chances are that in 2020 someone who has had their winter fuel cut might be thinking, 'Oh I can't remember, was it this government or was it the last one? I'm not quite sure.' Does A Wild really think it wouldn't be remembered come 2020?
  13. Under present taxation, for someone who will be on the full single tier pension there would be no income tax anyway until this added to any other income (occupational pension or other) was more than the personal allowance, planned to be £12,500 by 2020. Taxed in, tax free out is fraudulent.
