@SiemensUKNews Dec 5
Today sees the inauguration of the NEMO interconnector
a 140km under sea cable connecting Belgium and the UK electricity grids.
It can provide up to 1GW of electricity - enough to power 500,000 homes. Take a look at the press release #ingenuityforlife > https://sie.ag/2BRJtbN

GOLFCHARLIE get it into your head , this now formal challenge to TM's authority is entirely a Tory indulgence, whether the country can afford to waste time or whether the electorate will have a long enough memory are things still to be determined. The Tory brexiteer wing have now instituted a right shambles.
According to what I read here (and what you have been telling me over the years, climate scientists are all paid up members of the deplorable left wing scum, so are merely on the sidelines.

What about the EU's united indulgences, or the Liberal's or the DUP's, or the SNP's?

Labour are more disunited than ever, with the Leadership bankrolled by a few wealthy Trade Union interests.

Were the EU ever going to admit any faults, and actually take any corrective measures? The EU, like Climate Science is based on dictated Consensus. They are too big for their own boots, so will inevitably fail.

Cuadrilla statement

A series of micro seismic events in Blackpool have been recorded on the British Geological Survey website this morning following hydraulic fracturing at our shale gas exploration site in Preston New Road, Lancashire.

The largest recorded was 1.5ML (local magnitude) at about 11.20am. This occurred after hydraulic fracturing had finished for the day. According to recent research by the University of Liverpool the impact would be like dropping a melon. A series of smaller micro seismic events occurred during hydraulic fracturing, beginning at about 9.40am.

Cuadrilla will pause and continue to monitor micro seismicity for at least the next 18 hours, in line with the traffic light system regulations. Well integrity has been checked and verified.

No I didn't think you were lying M Courtney, that was the commenter on HYS who claimed to be a Tory. I was hinting that there's some sort of lefty social media putsch going on in order to get the otherwise unelectable left into power.

I don't think the Tories are out of their minds, whips always become ineffective when issues do not divide evenly along party boundaries. Some subjects are just too big for whipping, and I look on it as a good thing, a wlecome thing, when party control breaks down in parliament. Who would want a system where politicians votes are controlled by en bloc by a party structure, even on points of national interest or personal conviction? I forgot. The hard left most often run themselves that way. No thanks!

This is a confected crisis. Politicians do not have the desire or skills to implement what they have been instructed to do by the electorate. No single bloc has enough of a majority to push through what they want. May has tried to satisfy a divcided country by producing a plan which neither leaves nor stays. Neither side want it.

Corbyn is riding the same wave - his members overwhelmingly want Leave, so he can't campaign for cancellation openly. At the same time, he wants to attract middle class snowfalkes with the pseudo-promise that he will cancel brexit - without explicitly saying so. So ll he's doing is carping from the sidelines, hoping the implosion of the Tories togetehr with snowflakes thinking he will cancel brexit will somehow sweep him into power. He's as deluded as she is.

What's worse is that May is simultaneiously using the dual threat of "brexit cancelled" to cow Brexiters, and "no-deal brexit" to cow Remainers. Unfortunately for her (or is it the plan all along?) time wasting will result in an automatic no-deal brexit whether parliament ratifies it nor not.

Perhaps the only solution to this unsolvable* crisis is just to fight endlessly until events overtake us anyway.**

* it is solvable, just not by party politics.
** unless the EU magically bend their unbendable rules and stop us falling out of the EU as we should do in March

TheBigYinJames, Many Parliamentary Tories are not in their right minds at the moment. The Whipping has collapsed and the normal biases don't apply. Bewildered and lost in a sea of uncertainties. They would accept a Royally appointed leader for want of anyone else.

And I have never claimed to be a Tory.

Supertroll, Fear would keep a No Confidence motion until after the Brexit deadline in a few months, in my opinion.

UPDATE: Sorry TheBigYinJames. My reading comprehension fail. You weren't referring to me as lying. My mistake.
