Re: Please sign and share this petition to revoke article 50 and remain - nearly at 1m signatures!

Thank you Julian. You're quite right that this issue has incensed me for some time, and sadly to the detriment of both my physical and mental health, but if we can achieve another vote and this disaster is averted, it will absolutely have been worth it. Won't it be interesting to see what emerges fr...

Re: Please sign and share this petition to revoke article 50 and remain - nearly at 1m signatures!

Julian, I'd agree that revocation without a further ref is unlikely, but also the entire what is/isn't likely, or even possible, has been turned on its head in recent weeks. Curious though, as to what odds you'd be prepared to offer? If you're as confident as you sound then 20-1 doesn't sound unreas...

Re: Please sign and share this petition to revoke article 50 and remain - nearly at 1m signatures!

cjdad, I'd venture this post is a combination of next-door neighbour, relationship advice and gossip, so it's rather appropriate. You're very new to this forum, so I'll cut you some slack, but the consensus among this community has, since the EUref, been that posts of this nature are fine, as long a...

Re: Can anyone recommend where I can get a buggy cleaned?

Hi Lucy, there's a dad at my children's school who does it. I haven't used the service but he's a really nice guy, so worth trying out, his name's James and you can reach him on 07538 260 521

Re: URGENT - Please write to your Tory councillor and ask them to back a People's Vote in their council vote tomorrow

Apologies, I didn't realise this but you can go along to the Town Hall and sit in on these meetings - starts 7.30 and Brexit will be the last item on the agenda. Let's put some pressure on our elected representatives to see if they can do a bit better than the current shower in Parliament

URGENT - Please write to your Tory councillor and ask them to back a People's Vote in their council vote tomorrow

While I follow Brexit quite closely, I’ve only recently found out that our councillors across the borough of Wandsworth will vote tomorrow on a motion for a Peoples vote (among other things).   This was last voted on in October of last year and because the Tories have a majority in the council, it ...

Meeting with our MP Marsha de Cordova re. Brexit – 7pm Thursday 21st – 5 places available

I will be meeting my MP tomorrow evening to talk about the Labour leadership’s position on Brexit and how Corbyn has failed MPs, party members and voters. While I’m pleased that Marsha has defied the leadership to come out in favour of a People’s Vote, it won’t matter, if the front bench retains the...

Re: Has anyone else asked their MP to leave their current Party ?

Hey Calaya, totally agree. I have used twitter to thank those who have resigned, and will be writing to a variety of Labour and Tory MPs to encourage them to leave their respective parties.
