    Honoring their sacrifices

    How much of it's related to the fact that we don't walk round shitting ourselves about the prospect of getting ill and having to call the Bailiffs in.

    The British European Referendum

    Probably a fair observation. I'm a little left but not brainlessly so. I'll gladly accept there are decent right wing politicians in this country. I can see the ones that exist. I do take an interest in listening to them. I watch Parliament every day. I don't consider myself blind. But the...

    The British European Referendum

    True. But why is that "lefties" (in the UK - I cannot speak for the US) seem so reasonable and just 'pleasant'. Jeremy Corbyn, Vince Cable, etc. Reasonable people whether you agree or not with their politics and affordability of their agendas. The aforementioned Jo Cox, on the left wing of...

    The British European Referendum

    It's terrible. Having said that, seventy years back our grandads shot cunts like Farage and Robinson/Yaxley-Lennon. When a Labour MP, Jo Cox, was stabbed to death a couple of years back, a number of Farage's cohorts and sponsors came out to attack the husband in the months after the murder. So...

    Honoring their sacrifices

    Been there...it's how Empires are lost and won. I don't think America is quite ready to give yours up just yet.

    Honoring their sacrifices

    Very fanciful stuff. The USA has never done anything out of the kindness of it's own heart. It does so, and historically has done so, in it's own national interest. Always. Without exception. Doesn't make you bad. And it doesn't mean that certain countries shouldn't be (more) grateful. But if...

    Kudos to Irelend

    If he wandered into the wrong area of Belfast the provos would kneecap the big orange turd.

    The British European Referendum

    Protest voting again. No surprise really is it. As I've said elsewhere, millions of people with fuck all (money, aspirations, hope) who are happy to burn the whole thing down.

    The British European Referendum

    Aye it is. But no deal can't happen in my humble opinion. Parliament voted overwhelmingly against exit without a deal (none binding vote - just like the Referendum funnily enough). There has to be a deal. And they, and the EU, will keep knocking the ball around until somehow, by hook or crook...

    The British European Referendum

    You can't conceivably get what you want I'm afraid. It literally cannot happen.

    I don't understand this... Those 'Remainers' put a deal on the table to leave. All it needed was waving through and ... tadaaaa ... we'd have left

    The British European Referendum

    Gotta be careful of that mate. I had to go back all of around six posts.... "I'll just let other readers digest that as an indicator of your acumen, judgement and wisdom. " I forgot to post you your charts...can you PM me your address again please? It's at work in my cabinet. I'll get it sent...

    The British European Referendum

    Yeah. We've got a City Council to. Who can decide what they spend the money the Government give them on. And Andy Burnham, who's been sorting the homeless problem in Manchester out. But can't. Because the Government won't give him the money and legislation to do so. Mainly because the...

    The British European Referendum

    We're not a particularly democratic country anyhow. It's simply not possible to be so with a first past the post system. And we do self govern and self determine. Our Parliament write the Laws we live under. And we are able to elect and boot out those who govern us. And yes, it really is simple...

    The British European Referendum

    There's some city Government but in name only really as the finances are controlled by the national Government. There's no County Government. And we don't have States so there's no State Government. So it's pretty much UK and EU Government. I trust the EU 'Government' more than I trust the...
