Given a choice I would rather see the pragmatic approach of Rory Stewart up against the bull in the china shop, in the form of Boris.
It is an odd arrangement when the Conservative party members have to vote on the two decided by the MP's, many of whom might not like the two chosen for them.
A good few people I have spoken to believe Stewart has a more levelled headed approach to Brexit yet there is every chance, perhaps a near certainty that party members will not even get the chance to vote for him under the present system.
...........although Brexit dominates the news and yet many in this country have poor housing, look for food banks to survive and above all rely so much on an overwhelmed NHS.
How is your area standing up with regards to the NHS?, down here I see today our local trust has missed the target for A&E (being seen withing 4hrs), missed the target on Cancer care within 62 days of being referred by a GP, missed planned operations and care within 18 weeks with the only glimmer of light was in Mental health therapy within 6 weeks.
While the Brexit issue rumbles on, other important issues are left to stew, with any luck one day we will have a government that is actually capable of running the country and an opposition that will make sure it damn well does.
I am going to stick my neck out and suggest the biggest fear that the general public have at present above all else is JOB SECURITY and the uncertainty hanging over the BREXIT shambles.
There is no doubt in my mind that many small to large companies are worried about the outlook especially as we are no nearer to establish what lies ahead even after 3 years of negotiations.
The withdrawal agreement is the first hurdle which we find incapable of agreeing with the EU, what on earth will the trade deals the real meat of the parting of the waves with Europe bring about if we can't even agree on withdrawal.
The withdrawal agreement should have been the easiest bit., the trade deals to follow which we haven't touched on yet being the hardest to negotiate.
These prospective candidates need to get a grip on the situation and propose exactly what their thinking is to get the situation with the EU resolved not harping on about tax cuts, the IRISH backstop has not been resolved and I would like to know exactly how each one these candidates would for example resolve this particular issue.

Learning experience mate, and something to take out of it for the league matches against easier teams hopefully.
Daughters got a Taekwondo tournament next Saturday so I know how nervous you can get for your kids.
She's been black belt since 9 ( 3 months ago) and 1 of 13 across all ages selected to represent Warrington for a second time against teams from all over the North west. Apparently there is normally 'scouts' at the events in Manchester that keep an eye out for the GB Olympic team present and future potential so hoping she makes a good impression. I'd love for her to do well and go a long way in something she enjoys.

Yes we have ours netted against the local heron and gulls but I managed to obtain a net off the internet that blends in well and can be hardly seen except around the edging.
I find the whole business very time consuming but at the end of the day enjoyable even though cleaning out filters etc is something I don't look forward to.
It was because of the work involved that I filled in the smaller pond 12ft x 8 ft two years ago, at one time with two ponds plus a breeding pond I had four filters plus a man made stream with a run of 20ft and four pumps pushing the water around, now it is just the Koi pond and the smaller 6ftx4ft breeding pond with goldfish and plants, the stream has also gone which was made up with gravel and planted with water cress and went from one end of the Koi pond alongside to the far end.
One of my oldest KOI came to live with us back in 1996 when the pond was first set up passed away this morning.
A hi-showa, a beautiful fish, Red, with Black markings and a little white underneath, 2ft 6inch in length and his weight made the metal rod of the net buckle when I took him out.
This fish had a wonderful nature, would let you stroke it and feed it by hand and when the cat sat by the edge of the pond with its tail dangling in the water it would swim by and splash the cat with it;s tail.
It was one of six koi just three inches long when first purchased from a local breeder and the last of that batch, the others passing away during the past ten years, so a sad day having to bury such a wonderful creature.

A win there would be nice, I am not sure exactly how many times I have been there since the sixties but never seen us win.
