I've heard Theresa May is pretty good.

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

From the BBC - Article 50: Can the UK revoke Brexit? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-47668466 The BBC is not really a reliable source, is it? If you want to quote from something here is the original from the CJEU: http://curia.europa.eu/juris/document/document.jsf?docid=208636&mode=req&pageI...

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

How could anyone have a bet with you, every time you post you move your position? You've now moved from whether the commons could vote to revoke art 50 to whether that vote would be binding. On that basis it is arguable whether the 2016 referendum is binding, since there was no form of Brexit on the...

You just moved from "without a referendum" to "without a referendum or general election". Hardly firm ground to stand on.

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

Absolutely can happen – might be a debate about whether it will happen. We know there is a parliamentary majority against no deal, it follows from that there must also be a majority for a further extension, or revocation of art 50, if there is not a deal that can gain a majority. It may take some ti...

Actually, Angela Leadsome said yesterday, that they'd have to take note if it did break 17.4 million – so perhaps there is a chance.

I'd hazard a guess that you'd need to get more than "17.4 million" signatures on this petition in order to get any substantial movement.

Re: Anyone selling a keyboard for learning piano

I don't know what your criteria are, but if you have a computer already you can just by a USB midi keyboard – probably in the range of £50-100 new. ie, if you had a Mac, you have Garage Band, all you need is a midi-USB keyboard to access all the synthesised instruments. The pianos available on Garag...

Re: Video: Wandsworth woman's car rammed in terrifying incident

The simple answer to this is that the police are underfunded and have taken their eye off the ball - in that they seem to tolerate low level criminality and drug use/dealing. This in turn emboldens and increases the number of people involved in crime, which escalates the whole problem. This has been...

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

It seems that everyone is pretty much in agreement here, just lump it! I think that is really the only reasonable response. If you think about it, just over half the people who voted in the referendum wanted to leave - are you really going to ask everyone you meet what they voted for, and then refus...

Re: How to escalate a complaint against the Council? Councillors? Money claim? (overcharged for parking permit)

I think it is a deliberate ploy, they seem to do the same thing with general complaints - ignore them long enough and they go away.

Re: Wandsworth Council breaks Legal Agreement to help developers make even more tax exempt profits

I'm not sure they are corrupt, I don't think they have the brains to work that out. The main problem with WBC is a complete lack of competency. The planning deal that really does me in is that we apparently contributed £250 million to the costs of the Northern Line extension to Battersea Power Stati...

Re: How to escalate a complaint against the Council? Councillors? Money claim? (overcharged for parking permit)

Just sue them through money claims online. Don't feel bad about it, they wouldn't hesitate to sue you. The alternative is to complain to the Local Government Ombudsman. The reality is that Wandsworth Council has cut staffing to the bone, to the extent that they more-or-less lack the competency to do...

I'm pretty sure that there's no longer a concept of illegitimacy, all children are legitimate heirs.
