Liberal Democrats across the Newton Abbot constituency have selected Martin Wrigley as their candidate to become the next MP for the Parliamentary seat, which extends from Ipplepen to Kenton, including Teignmouth, Dawlish, Kingsteignton and Newton Abbot.
It most certainly does!
and here's a Tory Cllr who had something to say along similar lines http://www.middevonadvertiser.co.uk/article.cfm?id=103577&headline=Tory%20councillor%20votes%20%27in%27%20so%20that%20%20his%20grandchildren%20will%20be%20part%20of%20Europe§ionIs=news&searchyear=2016&_ga=2.147048048.612595507.1535396029-1460230017.1532516433
Since the 2010 general election the Lib Dems have lost 50% of their voters in this constituency, normally I would say Wrigley hasn't got a cat in hell's chance of taking back the seat but
given the parlous state of the Tories and May's total surrender to Brussels I wouldn't say Morris's position is very safe. One thing I do hope is that Sarah Wollaston in Totnes is kicked out,
that would give me great pleasure.
The nearest candidate to Sarah Wollaston in the 2017 general election was the Labour candidate whose total vote was some 13,000 behind that of SW.
SW had more votes cast for her than all the other candidates added together.
Wollaston needs to retain the support of the local Tory association if she wants to be the Conservative candidate at the next election. Given her track record of teaming up with
a couple of other traitorous colleagues and voting against the government on key EU withdrawal bills, I wouldn’t say that support can be guaranteed.
By the way, almost without exception, the electorate in the south west voted for Brexit, including those in Wollaston’s own constituency.
Maybe she no longer cares. Country before party and all that.
And a lot of information about the consequences of Brexit have come to light since June 2016
I suppose she can always fall back on her medical career.
We haven't even left the EU yet, an exit agreement has still to be finalised, so any consequences are pure speculation.
Under May's Chequers proposals we won't really be leaving at all, she must think we are all bloody stupid. Hopefully when parliament resumes
next month a serious challenge to her leadership will take place, and she will be binned in favour of a true Brexit supporting PM.
A No Deal hard Brexit for you then?
With all the consequences that such a scenario would bring?
Perhaps people and businesses need to start thinking through just what that might mean.
"amidst all of the technical detail, we understand that real livelihoods are at stake."
Before the referendum the terms "soft" and "hard" Brexit did not exist, it was just Brexit.
"Soft Brexit" is something dreamt up by Remainers as a way of keeping us in the EU by the back door, just as May has proposed in her Chequers document. It won’t wash,
voters can see straight through her duplicity.
We are not negotiating with the EU, they just want abject surrender from the UK. French President Macron recently stated the EU’s integrity must be protected at all costs.
The government has already said that EU nationals will be able to remain in the UK in the event of no deal being reached. We don't hear a similar commitment from Brussels,
with them it's all take and no give.
@B/S - as I have said before. More information has come out in the past 26 months or so since the referendum as to what leaving the EU might actually mean. Voters are now seeing through the spin they were spun (duplicity?) by the Leave campaign back in 2016.
As Dominic Raab, the Brexit Secretary, said only very recently: real livelihoods are at stake.
Here's a thought, let's implement the decision taken on 23rd June 2016 to leave the EU, then in maybe a decade we can revisit it to see if it has worked out or not.
After all, we had to wait 40 years for another rethink after the 1975 referendum, in which time myriad treaties were brought into force without any of us having a say
in whether we agreed with them.
Two years on and Remainers still cannot come to terms with the fact they lost the referendum. Just grow up for Christ's sake and stop throwing your toys
out of the pram.
Dominic Raab, fervent Brexiteer, said real livelihoods are at stake, not me.
A thought: if you are telling someone to grow up then you are implying that they are a child. Which is not a very nice thing to say, is it?
Bordering on name calling perhaps?
Burnside, yet again showing his true self
Someone who, on this very thread, calls MP’s “traitors”, isn’t really in a position to tell others to grow up.
Remain MPs and their supporters are attempting to overturn one of the largest votes this country has seen in modern times, "traitors" is entirely appropriate, may be even a tad too polite.
A lie. Just like the many lies that you Leavers and your media peddled two years ago.
Few objectors want to overturn the 2016 vote. Many believe that MPs should have a vote on the final terms of the exit.
Thank god that the Internet didn’t exist 1914-18, as no doubt the likes of Burneside would have trolled WWI conscientious objectors and called them “traitors”. Whilst at the same time applauding the patriots that, safely homed and living a life of luxury 100’s of miles away, forced hundreds of thousands of working class young men to their certain deaths.
That is an analogy by the way. Before your sister (if she hasn’t been banned from here) jumps in.
PS. Back to the thread subject, Wrigley has absolutely no chance. Like he didn’t have in North Devon at the last election before he threw in the towel there before polling had even started. I think a lot of people will see him as the professional politician wannabe that he is.
“For himself, not the many”.
I thought it was impossible to get banned from this forum, Mrs C, if it was you wouldn't be able come back endlessly with yet another username each time.
Bless you Burneside. Brotherly love is so sweet. Now there are less of you mindlessly reporting....
What would be the outcome of MPs voting to reject the terms of our exit, or even no deal at all. Do they think we will just stay in the EU as if the referendum had never taken place?
So how many times have you now been banned Mrs C? And yet here you are again.
“What would be the outcome of MPs voting to reject the terms of our exit”
They would be shot at dawn. As traitors should be...
So you don't have a sensible answer then, Remoaners never do.
“So how many times have you now been banned Mrs C? And yet here you are again.”
You tell us. And then shoot me.
“So you don't have a sensible answer then, Remoaners never do.”
Pointless, as sensible and Brexit Fundamentalists don’t mix very well.
I wish the Remoaners who love EU so much would just move over there and leave is in peace!
The vote was OUT ...get over it!
The term Remoaner is used in a derogatory sense and is therefore a form of name calling. (But if the expression Remoaner is acceptable for use on this site then how about Brexitard and/or Brexiturd? Are they accptable as well?)
Thought we didn't do name calling on this site anymore.
i fear double standards on this site @Lynne. some people seem to get away with being really vile.
As we're on the subject of Brexit.......there's a piece in today's Dawlish Gazette - see page 4. Article headed: Councillor: We're not prepared for Brexit
You left out Brexshitters, that's always a firm favourite used by Remoaners. And when all else fails they just resort to accusing Leavers of being a Russian bot.
The day after the referendum you announced that you were deleting your account on this forum. What happened?
This site has turned into a nasty toxic little place with no monitoring from the @webmaster. I do wonder if what some people on this board actually talk to people in real life in the same way or hide behind their profiles in order that they might spout bile.
Anyway, I guess it's bye bye Europe and bye bye Dawlish.com from me.
She changed her mind! (people do you know )
I didn't change my mind. I set my account to delete but I guess it's another thing that doesn't work along with capital letters and cut and paste.
Why Burnside how does it affect you, you've obviously searched through posts to find that? I've noted that there's a lot of snideness on here which just stops from name calling, to keep on the right side of the rules I guess. I'm happy to have a personal chat with any of you who have an issue with me and my views, just inbox me.
Sorry flo , this is The Hotel California
I thought this was Hotel Trump. There has been so much bickering, so many misleading comments, so many unanswered questions, so on and so forth. Some do not like what others have said about them, others claim to know more than they really do and others that don't know will make it up.
So I think Hotel Trump fits the bill quite nicely.
What do others think?
