Actually no.

I was referring to the Common Market.

Desperate May trying to swim but can't remember how ?
Too many Tories not supporting her so she needs other parties to help out ?
Or does she just want to share the ''Brexit blame'' with other scapegoats ?

Theresa May launches fight for her political career with 'unshakeable sense of purpose' | The Independent

Whatever her reasons, I think this smells very bad !

How much more of a mandate for Brexit could there be?
Brexit what Brexit ?

Vincent Cable on the Andrew Marr show on Sunday. ,not only declared his intention to be leader of the Lib Dem's but said there is a huge resurgence within Parliament of those who thought leaving the EU was a monumental Cl****r F**k (A 'cross party ' one) . He believes that Brexit won't happen, simple because it's untenable. He also believes that the much despised idea of a second referendum is almost inevitable.especially when the public feels the bite in their wallets, they didn't vote for. Interesting take.

I don't think it's anywhere near as clear-cut as that, although that's the way it's mainly being portrayed. I think it's more a case of not getting too far ahead of the voters

From that article :
"We may not agree on everything, but through debate and discussion - the hallmarks of our parliamentary democracy - ideas can be clarified and improved and a better way forward found."
Cheeky witch!

Must say, last Wednesday at PM question time, she acted a bit subdued.
I was wondering why her attacks weren't as nasty as they used to be.
Now I think this ''sharing parliamentary democracy'' was already in her head.
By the way, does this mean she just waisted 1 b £ of the tax payers money on the DUP ?

So ?
How about the NHS, the JAM's, the police, the fire department, etc etc etc !
And what about her favorite expression : there is no money tree ? Did she has a branch stacked away somewhere for priorities ? HER priorities that is !

Anyway, another challenge for her and Corbyn :
MPs set up new all-party group to combat ‘destructive’ hard Brexit | The Independent

Interesting week ...

I think it's probably a bit of all 3 with the 3rd maybe being the biggest portion.

I agree with you about priorities---the HS2--£56 billion, for example--just think how that could be spent!

However money used to benefit people of Northern Ireland is not "wasted" your word!

Certainly not a waste in the view of May who bribed the DUP to get their support.
What is has done is start a discussion in the NI opposition who have no representation in Parliament .
If the republicans do take their seats Mays tiny majority will be minuscule giving the opposition every chance of unseating the Tories or scuppering Brexit.
