Are we headed for Red October?

October will mark the centenary of the Russian 1917 revolution. I have the impression that Monentum and the extreme Left are in a similar mood , with talk of putting a million on the streets, to force the fall of the government. Already you can see the placards "Tories Out" on every protest march , even about the fire. Maybe I am over concerned, but I think we are in for a difficult summer.

Think you could be right JB but think a new PM might quieten things down a bit.

The Pm just now cant do anything right and I think most of the frustration is against her.

You are correct about the banners they are popping up quite often in protest. As long as it is just banners we should be Ok.

I take it you think maybe the banners first then the strikes. Nothing the mater with the Tories Out Placards as there are probably millions of folk that would do the same but do not go to political rallies.

The Tory party is so weak just now and will not be able to push through any tough laws etc.

What we don't want is a weak government that cannot govern.

Fear mongering already? Calm down. No one is going to storm the palace.

The Left in the UK have been trying to get a revolution off the ground for the last couple of hundred years but all to no avail. If such tactics would not work in the past when things were much worse than they are now I can't see any such thing happening now.

A difficult summer it may be but a revolution no way. Mind you there are plenty like myself who would be glad of a revolution.

If TM stands down, or is sacked, her replacement will have the same problem. How to create an Overall Majority.

This is the way that those countries that have embraced Proportional Representation live. It's not the end of the world. That Parliament can pass no new laws should be viewed as a blessed relief.

If we don't want it we can have another General Election and even another Referendum on the same sheet of paper

I was, of course, being ironic. Calm down , dears.

Always a grain of truth in jokes or irony isn't there. Still we live in a democracy.

Care to explain what you'd hope to gain Cymro.

"Mind you there are plenty like myself who would be glad of a revolution."

What a silly thing to say. You obviously have no idea what a revolution entails, or what the consequences would be.

Thankfully, you will not find out - there isn't the slightest chance of it happening in this country.
