Next General Election ?


Recommended Posts

When ? Normally due in 2020 (I think?), but could it be sooner? It would seem that negotiations for Brexit will take that long anyway, thus allowing the GE to be fought on the issue of triggering Article 50. The Remainians aren't giving up of course, and some are seeking a court ruling, that Parliament has to authorize the application of article 50, rather than the Gov; which could be legally and constitutionally correct. However, it's quite possible that the current pro-EU Parliament would vote it down, contrary to the popular will of the people, as expressed in the referendum. With the new PM's popularity on a high and Labour in a complete shambles, a GE could be likely, sooner rather than later.

You would assume so Sid, but I think you'll find that many MP's think they know better, what is good for us; a disconnect that played heavily in the referendum result. The situation with the un-elected Lords is even worse, with some already declaring that they intend to sabotage Brexit.

Hopefully, they'll use the "democratic system", flawed as it is (IE first past the post); to instruct the Gov on their priorities.  For those who think Brexit will be a cure all,  we now have the official figures from the Home Office on the number of asylum applications between 2005 -14; which is over 80,000.  These are illegal entrants and visa over-stayers, that will be spinning out their stay, through the courts at tax-payer's expense, no doubt hoping to appeal eventually to the ECHR.  So the priority for HMG will be to withdraw from the HR Treaty and legislate with a new migration bill to fast track deportations, with a target of zero net immigration.

It might be drastic ,but i think all these people among our would be immigrants who would like to inflict their medieval values on us should be put on military transport planes & repatriated in a country of their preferred religious beliefs. Parachutes could be offered at charge equal to replacement value.
