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. Will be posting shortly about  a meeting with Marsha. Would love to read your email if you want to DM it to me...

Brilliant idea to reduce waste and lower cost of giving gifts at childrens’ birthdays - Fiver parties – anyone tried?

Re: In-laws voted leave. They've removed my children's freedom of movement and I can't cope with seeing them any longer.

  As ever, there are some very considered, kind and helpful responses here. Thank you and I’ll respond in turn.   SW12pops I appreciate your comment but it appears we are diametrically opposed as to our interpretation of what the vote represented. You call it ‘democracy’, I call it a criminally proc...

In-laws voted leave. They've removed my children's freedom of movement and I can't cope with seeing them any longer...

  My in-laws voted leave and appear to be unrepentant about it. The family on my partner’s side has collectively agreed to avoid ANY discussion about Brexit at all, for the sake of maintaining cordial relationships, and this has avoided any ructions since June 2016. However, the second reading of th...

Re: Labour MP for Battersea, Marsha de Cordova comes out in support of a People's Vote!

NVhusband, I could not agree more with much of your post. It strikes me you may have missed the part in the post where I said…. there are many people who aren’t Corbyn fans in the slightest, perhaps wouldn’t normally even vote Labour, but did so tactically in 2017, to achieve precisely the sort of ...

Re: Labour MP for Battersea, Marsha de Cordova comes out in support of a People's Vote!

I think it’s important to address LizzyPots point, and given it was offered in a somewhat sneery tone, I’ll respond in kind. If you understood a little better how Parliamentary democracy works, you might realise that changing the parliamentary arithmetic in favour of Remain isn’t the same as giving...

Re: Labour MP for Battersea, Marsha de Cordova comes out in support of a People's Vote!

OK, I’ll start by dealing with the first attempt at being patronising. Sloaney donkey, I’m too polite to call your claim daft, so instead I’ll say that I think you’ll find it very hard to find any evidence for your assertions, perhaps you’d like to supply a link that’s supportive of your theory? (I...

Re: Labour MP for Battersea, Marsha de Cordova comes out in support of a People's Vote!

You don’t say how Marsha’s performance has been poor, can you be more specific? And voting on what exactly? I’m afraid on Labour’s position on Brexit you are simply wrong. 72% of Labour members want another ref, vast majority of MPs do too. it is only the front bench who are dragging their feet and ...

Anyone need accommodation for visiting relatives this Christmas (particularly those with kids)?

We have a 2 bed garden flat available for a few days, maybe a week, from the morning of the 25th. Do PM with a phone number and I'll give you a call if you have any questions. It's close to Wandsworth Town station, Clapham Junction and right next to Wandsworth Common Westside. Bit scruffy, but a nic...
