      Jose Antonio Reyes: Former Arsenal winger's car travelling at 135mph before crash.

      Former Arsenal winger Jose Antonio Reyes was driving at more than 135mph (220kmph) when he died in a car crash on Saturday, Spanish police have said.

      The Guardia Civil's investigation is ongoing and although the car exceeded Spain's speed limit (75mph/120kmph), it is not clear yet if that was the "final cause" of the incident.

      All these Tory leadership contenders talking about suspending parliament to force no deal Brexit.

      That’s an attack on democracy itself and stepping into dictatorship. Can’t get your own way so to hell with democracy!

      Honestly, this is the scummiest set of politicians I’ve ever seen, they deserve to f**king rot, can’t stand the scum.

      Indeed.The Uk is supposed to be a Parliamentary democracy. Going outside the legal framework of Parliament is in effect "extra Parliamentary activity". In other words going above Parliament because you can't get your way.

      If that happen it puts the credibility of Parliament in question. If a future Tory PM doesn't respect the will of the ELECTED MP's...why should anybody else.

      Looking like Johnson will get in.BBC all over him like a rash.Kuenssberg did an analysis of BJ on the BBC website. She more or less said BJ saying stuff like.."piccaninnies, bum-boys,Letterbox"etc isn't right...but come on..It's just Boris being Boris.

      Maybe she hasn't noticed Islamic Terrorists have hit numerous countries UK included.Many have lost their lives.Maybe she hasn't noticed that attacks on gay men and lesbian women has increased in recent times. Maybe she hasn't noticed Windrush victims still fighting for justice.

      This shameful portrayal of Johnson, that he's a bit of a harmless cad..ooh..what's he going to say next.Straight talking is what this country needs..blah..blah.

      If it's straight talking..the UK are about to appoint a Islamophobic, Homophobic,Racist,ex drug taking half wit as PM. Part Turkish by decent. His paternal grandfather was Ali Kermal.Nothing wrong in that but why did he then see fit to insult Pres.Erdogan of Turkey the way he did. Makes you think he might even be Trumps long lost brother.

      There may be trouble ahead..old hat yes but true nonetheless.

      Nope, it's a Constitutional Monarchy.
      Completely different thing.

      The Queen still has to sign off pretty much everything, and has power of veto over laws that affect her interests.

      Nope. It's a Parliamentary Democracy with a Constitutional Monarch.But it's either or to be fair.The reality is tho that the UK is a Parliamentary Democracy. The Monarch is effectively a figurehead with no real political power.

      If the Tories try to sidestep Parliament they would be taking a big chance. In the event of another Brexit stalemate, a 2nd Ref or a General Election should be held to sort it out.

      BBC scrapping the free TV licence for the over 75's is nothing more than a snide ToryBBC cheap stunt. It is due to come into force in June 2020. The Tories will run it up to about March/May 2020 then say they have listened to concerns of old age pensioners groups etc...then they will announce the TAXPAYER will fund it.

      A cheap shoddy snide Tory trick. Yes Labour bribe the electorate but not quite as sly and underhand as this.

      I suggest you check again about the powers "The Crown" still has.

      And from your own link;
      Quote
      Monarchy

      Politics in the United Kingdom takes place within the framework of a constitutional monarchy, in which the monarch (Queen Elizabeth II) is head of state and the prime minister is the head of the UK government.

      No mate, if you watch live TV online or any of the BBC channels, you have to pay the license fee.

      Pretty much spot on hence prime ministers having to go before her , although never used she still technically holds all the power ,

      It doesn't really, the license fee is worth paying, if just for the radio output of the Beeb. I rarely watch any BBC TV channel but it's radio stuff is far superior to most of the stuff pumped out by commercial radio.

      i can understand it from way back when ya only had bbc 1 and funky bbc2 but these days with the overload of streaming etc etc,i dunno.6 music is my go to radio station but if i had to pay extra for it,would not listen. And i do think there should be a discount rate for some of the older folk.
