    That too is worth considering, as she is going to have to be as tough as Thatcher was in order to survive in the Conservative government.

    Back on the Referendum; If we had mandatory voting as Australia does, we'd have a more balanced idea of what the Brits really want. As it was, there was still a poor turnout.

    I have always agreed that voting should be mandatory too.

    If the lazy people who won't get off their backsides to vote were fined they would think twice.

    Some people argue that forcing the electorate to vote is a breach of human rights and that the option to not vote at all or to abstain should be part of the democratic rights of all.

    I see this point, but I also see many people who never vote seem to have a lot to say after the vote has not gone their way.
