Re: feedback about moderation

Sorry about that. I did not have the time & energy to deal with it, and no one else volunteered :lol: :lol: No need to apologise. In reality, I suspect it's a sign that nobody bothered to read it. :D I read it and mentally substituted what I took to be the correct target. All this talk of Brexi...

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

The really worrying thing is ..... there is probably a huge number of people desperately hoping that leaving will be a massive disaster ... just so they can say "told you so" ..... and who will be eaten up with anger and angst if its a success ..... which is sad .. :( It depends how succe...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

It's clear from the last few posts on here and on the leadership thread that Boris Johnson is the obvious choice to unify the country... ... just not in the way he is telling us he will. Imagine if he became PM and then lost his seat. His majority in Uxbridge is about 5000. I would have thought tha...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Quite a few university vice-chancellors get more than half a million quid a year. Local authority chief executives get nearly as much. Of all the things wrong with the EU, this seems like small fry. Closer to home, we are about to get as PM a person paid £5000 a week to cobble together a few lies f...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Maybe the anaolgy is more like being offered a bike, billed as top notch & ensuring stunning performance (but as yet unseen) free of charge. Not only that you've been told there is a cashback offer that you will also benefit from. Once you've signed up there are worrying reports that the bike i...

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

I read about some sort of 'once in a generation' Scottish Independence Referendum :wink: that happened in 2014. Read the next line "or significant change in circumstances" :D In the wise words of The Proclaimers, "it's over and done with". Evidently, in the minds of many people,...

[qu. I'm not making lewd comments or anything sexist. She's already had her photographs in the DM as I showed on the other thread. I'd no idea what she looked like before I Googled her. Married 46 years with two grown-up daughters. :D Are you happy with the fact she successfully claimed £8,750 for ...

That's a shame, she looks so nice too. In fact, quite a looker. Not enough to make me want to buy a telly though. :wink:

Hearing her though, is enough to make me want to sell my radio.

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

I've just written to my MP, saying how appalled I am by her support for Johnson. I've also reminded her that Johnson doesn't care about Brexit, and that he might easily end up backing remain in a second referendum. He's a liar, after all. It's a long list, the colleagues, supporters and lovers he ha...

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

Remainers think it's all over but it will be when we leave. What do you mean by this? That the country will be in ruins? That non-compliant citizens should be shot? That Parliament will cease? That free speech will be silenced. That there won't be any more dispute about what Brexit should be? If we...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

A somwhat hysterical opinion not without facts railing against those who actually wanted to get the UK out of this mess as quickly as possible. A shame that most of Parliament won't except the democratic will of the people and would rather ruin this country than save it from the EU mafia and its' q...

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

Theresa May is never leaving. She has stepped down as leader of the Conservative Party, but she now says that she won't step down as PM until she thinks the new Conservative leader has the confidence of Parliament. As none of the candidates will have the confidence of Parliament, May stays. It's po...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

I seem to remember being called a "trot", several pages back. Well, you will insist on promoting a dictatorship of the proletariat and permanent revolution... Would that be the Lumpen proletariat? :mrgreen: You may call them that. These days they are known as 'ordinary hardworking familie...
