It's beyond staggering what these people manage to keep quiet for so long - mind you that was in the pre-internet days

So hope this is true.

Cameron could be forced from office in less than 24 hours

Anywone want to buy the UK prime minister  laugh laugh

http://www.thecanary.co/2016/04/11/david-cameron-has-been-put-up-for-sale-on-ebay-and-no-its-not-satire/

And then we have this an MP defending hamoron and then giving a wink to someone when he thinks the camera has moved off him.  It comes right at the end.

Tory MP thinks he’s saved Cameron’s career, until accidentally giving the whole game away (VIDEO)

We're lovin' this over here in the States.  Even though we have no idea what's going on, it's just downright civil by comparison to our over-the-top mudslinging election.

Several people I now signed the petition  regarding the EU Referendum
https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/123986

"The official response to this begins with this  quote ""The EU referendum will follow the usual procedure for counting votes at elections and referendums..."

Does this mean ballot boxes will go missing and show signs of having been tampered with when they turn up  4 hours later?

An interesting read on the future of trade between the UK and USA

http://www.bbc.com/news/business-36123622

ePolls not to be believed as there is much skulduggery going on these days in elections and Referenda in the UK - I seem to remember the Scottish Referendum polls showed victory for those that want to separate from the rest of the UK and the last General Election  predicted victory for the Labour Party - can't think what went wrong there

I thought, stupidly it would seem, that the "Snooper's Charter" was a dead duck but seems the Government are still attempting to get the Investigatry Powers Bill through Parliament.  An unprecedented coalition of civil liberties organisations fear that this will make the UK a world leader in surveillance and inspire tyrants like Putin and Mugabe

Cameron  made another gaffe today telling QE within camera shot that that Nigeria and Afghanistan were dishonest or words to that effect and I think he was hosting an event for them.  Get out of that one Cameroon

Well, no surprise there.  Mention it, let it die a death and then push it all through quietly behind closed doors.  Too late for that now, hope it goes piggy features some nightmares, bet he did not expect that to be found out,  Wonder what else he gets up to that we don´t get to know about.

Thanks for posting Marion, great find.

The real reason for Cameron saying that was a very deliberate attempt to deflect from a story far more damaging to him ...concerns our EU referendum

CNN Top Headline this morning but quickly buried by our Election of the Century.  Still, interesting that all news outlets jumping on this one.  Give Harry more press, please.  Everyone has had incidents with the Chinese being misogynists:

Quote
London (CNN)[Breaking news update at 10:59 a.m. ET]

British Prime Minister David Cameron said he would officially resign by Wednesday as Home Minister Theresa May appeared set to take over the reins.

Cameron had earlier announced he would resign by October following the June 23 referendum, in which the country voted to pull out of the European Union.
But he said he would officially step down by Wednesday evening after May became the sole candidate left in the race to take over.

The only other remaining contender, Energy Minister Andrea Leadsom, quit the race on Monday.

There are going to be major problems ahead as the Tory members are furious at not getting their vote.  Andrea Leadsom has been bullied and smeared to ensure she stepped down.  Millions of Tory voters are going to defect to UKIP now, myself included.  If only Nigel Farrage hadn't stepped down as UKIP leader his party could get in now.

I'm not surprised NF stepped down though - he had death threats ad bis daughters were threatened with multiple rapes.  I just hope at some time in the future he will come back.

The Tories are a disgrace - there was a clear majority for Brexit - if the figures had been the other way round but with Remain getting the larger share of voters there wouldn't have been any fuss.  So much for democracy.  In the UK it is all but dead and buried.  Theresa My will fudge the issue in negotiations with the EU and we won't leave IMO.  As Val says Major problems ahead.

The public's eyes have been well and truly opened to the dirty tricks constantly at play in politics over the last few months.  The May/Cameron camp knew that the Tory members would vote for Andrea Leadsom and sabotaged her chances in the most appalling way.  Hope here is some truth n the DM comment below.

KB, England, United Kingdom, less than a minute ago
'Mrs May is the lady for the job. She has always wanted us to leave the EU, but Cameron "persuaded" her otherwise. Her job As Home Secretary was hindered by EU red tape and she hated it. So give her a chance; she is passionately patriotic'
