The best Care Home

It seems like the inmates of the best Care Home in London have been a bit naughty today. 

There's a petition to bring them under control https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/170686

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Good to see the Lords doing their best to keep the unelected prime minister in check.

In the UK we do not elect the Prime Minister, we elect MPs who elect a leader as the Prime Minister. Do stay awake at the back of the room.

I think maybe you are the one who has been asleep. After all, she wasn't elected by MPs, was she? She became PM when she was conveniently the only remaining candidate. Or maybe you think single candidate elections are the way forward.

Ah grasshopper. Try to name one UK Prime Minister who was elected by the electorate?

Re: The best Care Home

I think I was quite clear in saying that she was not elected as PM by MPs. I made no mention of the electorate, so I'm afraid I don't see the relevance of your question.

Re: The best Care Home

In your dreams. And from the things you have been posting here, they appear to be very strange dreams.

The Lords does not have any powers to direct the government. All they can do is advise. The government can choose to ignore any decision they make.

When did you last vote for a prime minister, or for the House of Lords come to that?

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.
