    I agree. But, for the moment, it is all that is significant. Very admirable I'm sure, but hardly the basis for a manifesto. I don't think people in general have a high enough opinion of politicians to be that bothered if an MP they have never heard of has allegedly been mistreated. PM has a problem with immigration - Soubry https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-politics-47312336/pm-has-a-problem-with-immigration-soubry Wouldn't it be great if we had a political party saying immigrating is a good thing & immigrants aren't stealing your jobs/houses/daughters? They could even distribute mugs with the message on it.

    The other problem is that, without any "strongholds" their support is likely to be more evenly spread geographically than the 2 main parties. So even a 25% vote might only yield under 10% of seats.

    The problem with all this defection stuff,particularly if it carries on in some co-ordinated fashion, is that it distracts from the impending no deal Brexit & by doing so potentially makes it more likely.

    The SDP had 4 well known politicians leading the breakaway. 3 of them probably better known than anyone on the current labour benches except Jez. Without big names it's hard to see them making much impression in the short term. I'm struggling to see the point of it other than sticking 2 fingers up to Jerry & the Corbynites.

    "Lad" is a parody account run by Barry Fish.

    I'm not as clued up on US politics as you guys. I decided long ago that Trump was a dangerous egotistical narcissist who shouldn't be trusted to run a bath let alone the most powerful country on earth. I don't Muellers or Mannaforts to confirm that view. Maybe if Trump doesn't want folk to be "creative" in their interpretation of the 25th amendment, he should be careful not to be too "creative" in his interpretation of his emergency powers. Not getting your wall built is not a national emergency. Although to an egotistical narcissist, not getting your own way is about the biggest emergency there is!

    I don't think it's zahidf's estimates. Man has only possessed the technology to significantly affect the climate for a tiny fraction of 1% of the past 3.5 billion years. Indeed. True Who wasn't fussed? I genuinely have no idea what you are dribbling on about here.

    Well, that's what Donald thinks, isn't it? If he thought it was real, he'd build a wall to keep the greenhouse gases out. Walls work.

    I'm sure there were plenty who jumped on the bandwagon because it was an excuse for a day off school. As a member of a generation that has put the future if the planet in doubt, I'd rather praise the kids who are trying to do something about it, than criticise the others. And whilst bunking off school won't stop climate change, it certainly has got folk talking about it which can only be a good thing.
