  1. He told him to hop it as soon as the order was given. We no longer live in a world where it takes a month for the orders to arrive.
  2. The russians were already occupying the airport when Sir Mike Jackson told him to hop it.
  3. He's an idiot who tried to get british troops to storm an airfield occupied by russian forces in kosovo.
  4. Given the things that are already known about Giuliani, there aren't many "secrets" which could damage him. you are equating "working" with "popular" when it comes to policies, but the two are not alwas the same. In the UK, the concept of universal, comprehensive healthcare, free at the point of access, from cradle to grave, provided by the state is quite popular. It is however demonstrably not working. Those democrats are of couse right wing nutjob democrats like Ted Kennedy The co-sponsors of his most high profile bills would suggest this is something of a stretch. In reality, lik
  5. NH went for Bush in 2000, and Kerry hardly won a landslide in 2004. It is certainly up for grabs, but probably unlikely to be critical. Pennsylvania went for Kerry by a similar margin that Ohio went for Bush, so as you say, both are up for grabs. I think 2008 will come down much more to who the Democrats nominate than the Republicans. Obama seems to be getting something of a free pass at the moment in terms of his being a lot more left wing than he lets on, and with a limited senate record to defend, he would probably be less susceptible to the liberal wiener attacks which did for Mondale/Duk
  6. You could essentially achieve it by making a one constituency scenario in the British version of Prime Minister forever.
  7. pete_wass@hotmail.com cheers
  8. I missed that, I wasn't really looking that far down the order. Very weird.
  9. The Canadian experience is unlikely to happen here though as there aren't any prospective challengers to the tories from the right, nor is there any great appetite for them to emerge.
  10. The monarchy is a wonderful institution which saves us from electing f***wit presidents like clinton. can anyone imagine a president blair (cherie that is.) She also saves the government a fortune in rent.
  11. The joys of being the pro monarchy party.
  12. It depends a lot on what changes he made to the platform. I could play with myself as the tory candidate, and on some issues I would be to the right of Michael Howard, on others I would be to the left. It would still be a realistic platform for the present Tory party. Also The game doesn't include an awful lot of possible candidates. You can play the scenario as Theresa May or Ken Clarke, but not as David Davis yet he is the only one of the three who could conceivably actually be leader of the tory party.
  13. slightly weirder is Plaid winning 27 seats and the ScotNats winning 37. That really would have made election night exciting
  14. That would actually be an interesting result, because while the Tories would get the support of both unionist parties, the Lib Dems would in reality almost certainly go for brown, as would the nationalists in northern ireland. Who formed the government would thus depend on how many seats the SNP and Plaid Cymru won
