So the opposition got what they wanted in a sense (i.e there now can't be an election before the Brexit deadline)

Not entirely true because in theory a law declaring an election a week later can always technically be passed. But it is very very unlikely.


Parliament has to be dissolved 25 working days before an election takes place today would have been the day Parliament would need to be dissolved if an election was to have been held on October 31st.

I’m sooo sorry if this HAS been addressed previously but why is the Parliament channel not using Reith?
Please excuse any typing errors. I am on my third butterfly keyboard (Mac). An update is due the minute what I want is released. Smile

Because they are only reithing things when they revamp or refresh things, so obviously sticking with what they've got for now.

The Stoke stuff wasn't great either, pretty much the entire population of England's medium-sized towns must've been vox popped over the last three years. If they just replayed the same clips every night of a young person saying how worried they are and an older person saying "get on with it" you'd end up just as enlightened.

The views from Portsmouth tonight.

Any bets on where we will be visiting tomorrow?


Not just one but two vox pop reports on News At 10 last night. I don't normally watch the BBC News At Ten - are they normally that bad for vox pops? I've been surprised when watching the BBC News the last few nights - I remember their bulletins being a lot more authoritative in the past. Thank goodness they had an Orla Guerin report last night to remind me how good the BBC's reporting can be (even if her reports are normally rather bleak).

To be honest, I'm not even sure why we need them?

I don't need to hear what Steve, 75 or Adam, 23, thinks about a story.

I hate vox pops and always skip them ( rarely watch or listen to the news live.)
