  1. I stand that some Conservatives have been in ‘trouble’ with misconduct but have only been suspended by the party.Is this one law for Labour come independent) and another for Conservatives?

    • It is sad but it could be true.
      Is the UK really reformable ? I doubt it, what’s democratic about FPTP ?
      And, there is the problem of too much centralism.
      It is best for Wales (my country) and Scotland to proceed with independence:
      This could force change.
      If the UK falls apart (USSR) then we have the better larger, better designed, democratic and representative union: The European Union !!!
      Now, with membership of the EU do we really need an old centralised UK ?
