All the time, really? Why is it so important for the government to have a majority then? Yes, they do vote for the government policies if not controversial or after adding amendments. Let's say the government wants to introduce tax cuts for the rich, do you think Labour will vote for it?


Yes all the time. A majority is of course important but you’re assuming that all in government vote with the government which doesn’t always happen. Who they vote with will depend on what they’re voting for.

There’s a bill coming for domestic abuse brought by the government. Do you think labour will vote against that? For your example no labour wouldn’t vote for that ad neither would a good amount of conservatives so a majority government might not even get that through.

As I said, if it's not controversial and when opposition amendments have been approved they all vote for them. However, the type of deal is highly controversial, not only between government and opposition but even within the parties, specially the Tories who are trying everything possible to recoup UKIP voters

The Nice treaty in 2001 and Lisbon treaty in 2008 were rejected in Ireland in referendums.

In order to turn the results around, second referendums were held which reversed the results.

Be great if it was none of my business either, alas the tories have a horrible record of messing up my country.

Dont you think the two rerun referendums are something you might expect to happen in Zimbabwe rather than ROI?

Referendums are usually re-run after changes brought in the treaty, I don't know about what happened in ROI, probably those from there could share.

You were extolling the virtues of the leader of the DUP on here.

Still impressed by Arelene this morning?

The reason why Irish people care is because we are going to be collateral damage in this ongoing tory civil war.
