if the british prime minister's way out was to travel from london to brussels to meet the european commission president. and his chief negotiator michel barnier they did not shake hands for the cameras and in fact the fancy dress unicom protesters outside looked more optimistic than the diplomats inside. no breakthrough was predicted and by the time the prime minister's convoy departed no compromise had been reached but there is a growing sense of time running out and some suggest that the emergence of the independent group will embolden other dissenters we don't know how it will impact how it all turns out. it does make it look but now there is a new independent group but they'll make more independent action from other m.p.'s moreover the less likely perhaps the most interesting aspect of the resignations of these eleven m. peace is not the individual grievances but the collective grievance that politics in the u.k. is broken and that the political landscape dominated by just two main parties is

a live body but full of spirit roughly oh my organ exudes the kind of calm determination most people in his condition would find hard to muster. before being transported to this hospital in neighboring brazil the thirty year old venezuelan was at death's door and while he's still extremely weak he's also much improved. by the just sexy he had skin rashes pneumonia and all of his conditions would derive from his diabetes which was uncontrolled that's most probably because access to things like insulin is real and venezuela is insulin a medication for diabetes patients readily available in most countries the world over but rafael whose aunt watches over him now just as she had prayed over him when he was in a coma wasn't so lucky i've been afraid in venezuela we can't get anything life just isn't good we can't get medicine we can't get insulin and nothing else stayed
