This week we go to good old Albion where we ask:
"Should Boris Johnston be allowed to suspend parliament with the Brexit deadline so close?"

Sorry for confusing you.
Yes, that is what I meant, I suppose I phrased in in a rather unambiguous manner.
Anyway, that is not particularly important and I slightly regret saying that stamens if it caused such a great deal on confusion.
Anyway, we have more important matters at hand, do you enjoy roleplay?
Boris Johnson- a prime minister who was only voted in by a tiny majority of the British People, should have to answer to the people’s elected representatives. Boris Johnson claims he is “pro- democracy”, but he is deliberately evading the wills of the people’s representatives and defending a 3-year old result. Would it be reasonable to abolish elections as “the people have spoken”? Obviously not.
What is un-democratic about a second referendum? If Brexit is so “amazing” then the British people will vote for it again- perhaps with an even higher majority. If Brexiteers truly believed Brexit would win, then they would love a second referendum so they could say “the British people still want Brexit”. This would be hugely advantageous to them so why don’t they? They don’t because they can’t believe their luck in tricking the British People and know it wouldn’t happen again.
Role Play? Not so much anymore. I was involved in one once where almost everyone got the DEAT from the mods, including the regional founder. I tend to avoid that now. "Once burned is twice shy."
Question: "Should Boris Johnston be allowed to suspend parliament with the Brexit deadline so close?"
Answer: Yes. Time to move along and stop the dilly-dallying.
But isn't it ultimately up to Her Majesty the Queen whether or not to suspend the Parliament?
Current World Leader? Historic World Leader? Or NationStates Leader?
We must seize the means of production for the proletariat and rise up against the corrupt, money-grabbing corporate capitalists.
The bourgeoisie will be the first up against the wall when the revolution comes.
How may we assist your journey to the glory of communism?
Hey, I hope everyone is starting to get back into the groove of school. Anyways, this week we will be looking at America's longest war in its history;
"Should the US negotiate with the Taliban to end the Afghanistan War?"
