Well GB, I don't think it would work because MPs are all out for themselves. There is not much between them, all they are interested in is keeping their jobs and all the perks that go with it. It has just become another part of the civil service.
What I would like to see is a completely different party, perhaps Reform, with fresh ideas and a return to morals, accountability, stuff all this woke business and, for me, most of all, stop drag queens going into primary schools to read stories to children.

At the time of the wartime coalition government the Labour and Tory parties accounted for close to 95% of the vote.
Nowadays we have nationalist parties in Scotland , Wales and Northern Ireland. Plus the Liberals.
I doubt that anybody could form a workable coalition from such a collection.
The problem with UK politics is that it is full of lightweights and non entities in all parties. Cut the MP numbers in half, double the remuneration ,scrap devolution and get back to serious politics.

Why would he call an election, the conservatives still have a massive majority in parliament, because to force a general election, the opposition, would have to table a motion of no confidence in the government, if the government lost such a vote, then they have to take the issue to the country, and a general election is called, but that is not going to happen is it.

Mr. Speaker, my right honourable friend seems to have not read through, or fully understood, the rules on hunting as laid out in the Hunting Act 2004.

The strange thing is, there is NOTHING new in the revelations concerning Boris.
As recent as yesterday, we were hearing the well worn phrase that acknowledgement of his deficiencies were 'priced-in'!

Replied: 6th Jul 2022 at 14:42
I am so sick of the media circus, blowing trivial matters out of all proportion, all he said yesterday was that he had forgotten something which he had been told some three years ago, and then there is partygate, which incidently was done by the civil servants in number 10, they were getting around the fact that their watering holes in London, had been closed by the pandemic, and they had moved their after work boozing into number 10, and who got clobbered for it ?
Boris copped for it, and why were those civil servants who got fined, allowed anonymity for it, and how many of them resigned over it ?
If Boris goes, the media circus, will turn on his successor, and if Labour win the next election, the media will turn on Kier Starmer or whoever is leading the Labour Party.
It is '''SO''' pathetic

I believe the best thing for the country is for Boris not to resign and take it to the country with a general election and for the Tory voters to do the same as Labour voters did last time under Corbyn and have a protest vote and vote for the LibDems and the for the LibDems to enter into a coalition with Labour. This may then even take us back to the EU - its one of the agreements that the Lib Dems would sign with Labour. And then hopefully next time I fly into Barcelona I won't have to wait 2 hours to get through passport control.....
