Memories of summers past

Hughendon 2006. 3mp Kodak camera

 

Today is the day that Parliament in the UK votes on the government's Brexit deal. Both main parties are divided and it may well come down to how many Labour MPs either abstain or vote with the government. At the time of writing the numbers do not look good for the government and they may well be defeated heavily. What happens then is anybodies guess. It looks likely the opposition will press for a vote of no confidence in the government in order to trigger a general election. However, the DUP are more likely than not to support the government in such a vote and it is not clear how many of the hard line leave tories would not support the government in such a motion, as they could find themselves in opposition after an election with little say in what happens.

C'est superbe.
Bill Phillips: It is a fine house and was the home of a former Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli.
A fine building and grounds. I find the whole Brexit thing totally depressing. If someone had sold me a car and lied about it the way the Brexiteers did about leaving, they would have been prosecuted....
Bill Phillips: I read this morning that Mrs May made a speech to a group of workers in a factory in Stoke on Trent a few days ago arguing her case. Ironically the factory had received over £400k EU funding a few years ago.

oh, wow, the property as a whole is superb

what a fine film photograph
Bill Phillips: My first digital camera Sherri.
Quite stately architecture.
We'll pray for things to go your way - it's as much a mess as everything our president touches....
Bill Phillips: The home of Benjamin Disraeli a politician of whose stature we could do with right now E

You show the proper, solid, fine England showing this beautiful building.
I am suffering with Great Britain ... what a desaster of politics ... "a country in hysteria" a German quality paper titled.
Bill Phillips: Your paper's headline is about right Philine. This, as I am sure you know was the home of Benjamin Disraeli .....we could do with someone of his stature right now

I don't think I've ever been to this place. It looks distinctive and interesting
Bill Phillips: Fittingly it was the home of Benjamin Disraeli ....we could do with someone like him right now

I think we should consult the pigeons and let them decide.
Bill Phillips: Some are now saying she could lose by over 200 votes! But don't worry we don't need Europe we are the 5th largest economy in the world (and falling) and we can become a great centre for money laundering and tax avoidance experts....oh hang on we do the already

I've not heard of this place before.; I had to Google to see where it is. Looks as though the summer of 2006 was also quite dry judging by the state of the grass.
Bill Phillips: Well worth a visit.
This is new to me, I've not heard of it before, it is quite attractive. In all honesty it doesn't matter which way we as individuals voted the way the M.P's.have been, and are behaving, is an utter disgrace, they are treating we electorate who put them there with utter contempt on all sides, and let's be honest, it wouldn't matter how good the deal was Mr.Corbyn would still vote it down because all he wants is an election he hopes to win, the Brexit thing is secondary to his plans.
Bill Phillips: The whole thing came about because that idiot Cameron wanted to pacify the tory backwoodsmen who are rampancy xenophobic, assuming that the public would vote remain. Well he got that wrong and promptly to go off and line his pockets. Mrs May saw her chance and got the top job. A remained she has pretended to be fulfilling the will of the people whilst Corbyn who is really not a fan of the EU although he campaigned to remain is happy to watch make a complete bog of it. Trouble is there is no mileage in the DUP voting the Government out because if either side win a general election their influence will vanish. Only another hung parliament will work for them. If there were to be an election who would the remain voters vote for? Both main parties are totally committed to leave. Only the Lib Dems and greens want to stay.....I wonder if I have any Irish ancestry grin
Amazed not to see hoards of tourists here.
Bill Phillips: I don't recall it being busy that day.

Well summed-up, Bill
Bill Phillips: It is a mess and the blame really lies with that idiot Cameron and his chum Osborne. Even Blair wasn't as useless as those two

What a state of affairs our so called leaders have got us into.....
Bill Phillips: I blame Cameron. He nearly destroyed the union and, learning nothing, then had a referendum on the EU.
quite some presence, Bill, overlooking the tidy lawns.
