'... crawling over people’s Wikipedia entries to know.' I would commend the practise - particularly when lords one has never heard of try to subvert the will of the people, which they will do when they next get their hands on the Brexit bills. There are a great number of made-councillor-but-didn't-get-into-the-Commons types among them, and far worse.

Evidence? You need only to look at the monthly ConHome Cabinet members' rankings to see how badly they are doing - routinely filling the lower third. Over-promoting female MPs is the political equivalent of the United States Marine Corp's gender-norming its standards so women could pass them and become marines. What did this involve? Yep, women were allowed to get away with throwing grenades a shorter distance than male recruits. But the new shorter distance was ... less than the grenades' lethal radius! The policy created self-fragging marines. Back to politics: the key to solving the 'woman problem' is to encourage women to become parliamentary candidates. Then they should be on their own.

PMQs will be fun.

Hmmm. I'm thinking that having one company responsible for so much of the government's maintenance workload is a bad idea - poor 'risk management'', in fact. Perhaps, when putting in place new providers, the government should push the workload in the direction of medium-sized companies.

I detect evil in your comment.

No - particularly at a time when women are over-represented on our backbench 'awkward squad' and when so many former A-list candidates seem to have very few Conservative credentials. Indeed, one of them even wanted to join the Labour Party.
P.S. Maggie Thatcher made it to the top without all this silliness.

Good point. And why did I have to go to Wiki to discover that the writer is a left-winger?

And a MASSIVE reduction in the size of it. The only net immigration target I'm prepared to support, until the housing crisis is solved, is ZERO.

Wouldn't you agree that the EU, when getting involved in regional matters, or even deeming to arrange 'regions' across the EU, is over-stepping the mark?

I haven't read it, FP, but I've done some research on their policy positions. In this week's Sunday Times there was a lengthy article about the 'child refugee' problem in Germany. As one might expect, the article included mention of a number of German girls, one just 15, having been raped and murdered by 'child refugees'. One of the assailants was twice his claimed age, being over 30. Technology exists to determine age quite accurately - the use of X-rays being a new development - but 'human rights' of the 'children' trump those of their ivictims. I'm not sure what the AfD says about this issue but I'm 100% certain that their manifesto will have more common-sense in it than that of Merkal's CDU.
P.S. And a ''child refugee' costs the German tax-payer about E60000 per year.
