Kneeling for the Anthem is OK



In a strange poll that got a lot of people steamed up on voice, it seems it became more about voting against whatever Donald Trump thought was correct. The majority of you voted that kneeling during the national anthem, when traditionally you stand, was not disrespectful.

29 (45%) of you thought it was disrespectful, 36
(55%) of you thought it was not.

One cannot wonder how the voting would have gone, if Mr Trump thought kneeling was OK.

Thanks for taking part, another poll soon.

Vote: Disrespectful to kneel?



Is there ever a time when the things you believe so strongly in, outweigh national pride, and you should feel able to protest openly, even if it offends your country?

Or is protesting, in this case kneeling during the national anthem unacceptable, no matter what?

Cast your vote, just for fun, but we love your opinions and its a great talking point for debate.

London City votes for Hard Brexit



Last week the Prime Minister called for an early election in June in attempt to secure a mandate from the people to perform a quick exit from the EU.

We asked you if you preferred to go through the full negotiating period (a soft exit) with certain non-negotiable agreements in place, or you fancied taking your chances with a swift (hard) exit from the UK.

65% voted for a hard Brexit, whilst 17% voted for a soft Brexit and 17% were unsure.

Thanks for taking part.

Soft or Hard Brexit?



Decisions, decisions...

Theresa May has called a General Election in the UK for 8th June.  The third time in three years that the whole country has been to the polls.

It seems likely she will win and increase her majority in the Commons, and this gives her the mandate to push-on with a swift exit from the European Union instead of a long good bye.

The problem is this.  Do we hang around like an old scorned lover, in a broken down relationship trying to get the pots and pans in settlement, or do we just pack our things and sling our hook?

As things stand, a Soft Brexit means we keep paying in to the EU after we leave and continue to permit free movement of people in exchange for access to what used to be "the common market".

Or, do we just leave, stop paying the EU and regain control of our borders?  We would have to strike up our own trade deals and forge new friendships and renew acquaintances with the Commonwealth countries.   USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand (who we are currently prohibited from trading with under EU law) have all indicated that they would like to strike up trade routes with the UK.

As always, this poll is just for fun.. So which option would you choose?
