Far from maintaining the peace, the Atom and Nuclear Bombs simply maintained a state of war until 1989. Anyone who grew up during the Cold War, which must include most of us here, can tell you what it was like to live under the threat of Mutually Assured Destruction.

I believe it is a fallacy to say that nuclear weapons kept Europe from being overrun by the USSR (not Russia by the way).

I lived through cold war but even as a teenager never believed any country would use them in attack, maybe as a last resort defence.  Thing about nuclear weapons is that they are a very blunt instrument and the radioactive cloud may well find its way back to the country who used them and kill their citizens, as well as polluting water and food supplies.  Strange thing is that when USA cut UK out of nuclear program because we were so leaky ( Russia got secrets of nuclear bomb from spies in UK so who can blame Americans ) then UK developed the hydrogen bomb which had much higher yields than anything USA or Russians had at the time, and was lighter.

In the latest bizarre twist to the Conservative leadership election, it seems to have turned into a 'who's taken what drugs' competition.

I'm starting to wonder if they're all on drugs.
Now Leadsom's been on the weed.

The recent 'weed' enlightenment debate among contestants has reached knew lows. I suspect Leadsom and others have been wrong footed here in the wider political game, not least among the home counties. Looks like the considerable 'forces that be' are manouevring behind Johnson who continues to play to the gallery. What a waste of a good brain. I would expect the reluctants to fall in line on the basis of the 'Devil you know rather than the Devil you don't'. Given the parlous state of the party, I suspect the instinct for survival will kick in.

Perhaps this will come back to haunt him.

So MPs have rejected a Labour-led effort to take control of Parliament's timetable, blocking the latest attempt to stop a no-deal Brexit. Eight Labour MPs, mainly MPs with constituencies which voted Leave at the referendum, voted against the motion. Looks like MPs are looking towards the next General Election and their future in Parliament.

Yes, and not only Labour MPs, some silly conservatives have a lot to worry about. Farage did promise not to field candidates in seats held by Brexit supporting Tories, just against remainer Tories and other parties. That defeat vote is a boost for hard line prime minister candidates like Johnson and Raab.

I am not sure I would stick Johnson in the hardline category. In fact, I am not sure where I would stick him. As I have said before, in my view, Johnson is a waste of a good brain who plays to the gallery. We just seem to be inundated with lukewarm luvvies these days.

Well that was quick. There seems to be an identity crisis here.

Probably a good idea to change the 'barcode' logo too.

I see Chukka has joined the libdums. didn't he tweet a while ago that he wouldn't be seen dead wearing a yellow rosette ?    He also says there is not mandate to crash out of EU, well Chukka you didn't have the decency to let your constituency have a confirmatory referendum on you leaving labour or joining the libs. so IMHO you do not have any mandate to vote in parliament.  Another supposed democrat who does not understand democracy. 

https://www.rt.com/uk/461860-umunna-liberal-democrats-hypocrite/

He said that he did not realise how difficult it would be to set up a new party,  you better ask Farage for lessons.  Ever thought people did not vote for change UK because nobody likes turncoats who get elected for one party and jump ship to another without submitting to a by-election.

Just embarrassing. It's like watching a bunch of school kids running a candy shop. Excuse the Americanism.

It looks like voter fraud in Peterborough is being investigated - 'no 5h1t Sherlock' !

Its been going on in ethnic areas for decades,  and labour has colluded with the vote riggers because they are by far the main beneficiary of the scams.

I'm starting to wonder if they're all on drugs.

Curious and curiouser :-
