  1. Let's be honest though, in a general election, many people will be voting for a Prime Minister.. subconsciously, even if they don't say so. I want to hear from the parties, as much as possible, and I want them questioned by the public. However, there needs to be a lot more control, and less time spent blaming the other parties, and with all the stupid bickering.
  2. Sorry Diane, there isn't an option for fonts any more.
  3. I've been tagged in posts and I haven't received a notification, so there must be a setting somewhere...
  4. I'm pretty much the same. This is the biggest thing which annoys me in the run up to the election - I want to hear about what each party can offer, not listen to it bashing it's opposition!
  5. I'm definitely in the 'untrustworthy' camp, and I find it hard to have any respect for someone who doesn't stick to what she says. May wanted to stay in the EU, and now she's going for the hard options.. she was adamant there wouldn't be an election, now suddenly there is. I therefore find it hard to trust anything she says. Although... as you say, that's rather true of all politicians!
  6. I wish there was a strong enough party to kick them out.. all I can hope for is that her majority is cut, and the other parties are able to make life harder for her! That is, of course, as long as North Korea and the USA haven't killed us all!
  7. Yep - more arguing and division.. just what we needed!
  8. See, that's the bit I don't get. People will vote Conservative for many different reasons, an election (and therefore your vote) can't be all about Brexit... can it?
  9. I'm rather confused by Theresa May announcing that she wants a snap election. I don't think there's any strong opposition out there, so Conservatives should win... so what does she gain? Plus, if by a miracle, there's some sort of hung parliament and coalition, can they make any changes to Brexit? I'm generally rubbish with politics, so am interested in any views on this one...
  10. The same thing happened to me Janet - I've changed the link now, it should go to the offer page only now. Added: I'm sure it should show as a pre-order, so hopefully it's not done anything.
  11. We're aware that sometimes when trying to post, members can face a '500 Internal Server Error' page. This is being caused by a security system being run on the server, and is something I have no control over. I am in contact with the server support team, and they are trying to work on the issue. If you are trying to post and you get this error page, do not keep trying. If the error is flagged up too much, you will find it difficult to even access the forum for a while. If it's an important post, we have found that splitting it up over 2 or 3 posts often helps, so you could try that. Most importantly, please email me bookclubforum1@gmail.com - most importantly let me know what your IP address is (visit http://ip.liquidweb.com/ to find it) and what time you trying to post. If possible, include your intended post. I can pass this information to support, and they tell me that after they deal with a few, it should settle and stop happening. I apologise for this - I'm finding it extremely frustrating that apparently simple posts are triggering critical security warnings.. but all I can do is pass the information to support, and hope it will improve.

  13. @Athena I hate to say it, but I'm still seeing missing smilies, such as in this post http://www.bookclubforum.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/14521-hayleys-reading-in-2017/&do=findComment&comment=479420
  14. I'm trying to deal with the server support team, and I'm finding it the most frustrating thing. It seems a ridiculous level of security if we can't post normal posts! If anyone tries to post, and gets a '500 Internal Server' page, can you please email me what you were trying to post - bookclubforum1@gmail.com Thanks Added: Can you also let me know what your IP address is, as this helps them pinpoint the error. You can visit http://ip.liquidweb.com/ to find it.
  15. I need a copy too please. The server support people say it's to do with a security issue on the server, but I can't see for the life of me why certain posts are setting it off. They've gone quiet, so I need to let them know it's happening again.
