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

Hi there, Only one thing may have changed since the start of the recess - "Of what now is the Good Friday Agreement?". With the Speaker of the US Senate wandering around the border area it's lucky she didn't get in the way of a stray bullet! Might have helped Trump is she had :shock: . Off...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

Hello again, My throwaway line about Emma Thompson wanting to get arrested, wasn't actually a throwaway line? If her comments to reporters at Heathrow Airport, as reported in the Daily Telegraph accurately states her words, then that is what she actually wants. One could decide to make comments abou...

Re: Funniest clean joke I've heard recently

Hi again, As Max Miller used to say - "Would you like one from the Red Book or the Blue Book?" Living on a comedy diet of I.T.M.A., Around the Horne, Navy Lark et al one only saw rudeness if your mind went that way. Listening to the likes of Rob Wilton one could just enjoy stuff without ri...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

Hi all :( , Nice to see that the celebrity environmental protester Emma Thompson flew in from Los Angeles in the hope of getting arrested during this protest against Environmental Damage. I hope she will reflect on her part in needless pollution? But I doubt it :cry: . MM

Re: Funniest clean joke I've heard recently

Hey Brynpoeth, Get the old hoary joke correct - "My wife's gone to the west Indies! Jamaica? No she went of her own accord"! Last seen by me in the oldie film "Danger Within" (POW Film) Often followed by "My dog's got no nose! How does it smell? Awful"! It's the way we ...

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

Hi Vorpal :D , I will hold my hand up to occasionally using self deprecation & irony to draw the foul! As in basketball you sucker them it to get to the free throw line. Like certain footballers going down in the penalty box when someone breathes on then, Not Mo Salah, the spot kick is a gift fr...

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

Hello, Well now I've been told, quote from Leave or Remain manifestos? Well that has sorted me out, coz I don't do rhetoric! I have avoided indoctrination at all cost, born stupid, wasted my time at school, then learnt that listening to politicos is bad for everything. Banged to rights. Trouble is t...

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

Hi there, Plus 2 for that Mick :D . Control is at the heart of the E.U. agenda, coercion as a standard weapon. Big Brother will knock your lights out :roll: . If we agree that our Westminster M.P.s take liberties with expenses, then we must see that M.E.P.s do even more wrong! Wish I had Nigel Garag...

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

Morning all, As one who did take part in the Harold Wilson 1975 Referendum let me put this clearly. That vote was not about Remaining or Leaving the E.U., no it concerned the European Economic Community, a very different entity! It was a cooperation body for mutual benefit with member countries stil...

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

Hi Horizon :) , So let me get it straight, Leavers are accused of shouting "Foul" when they object to not liking a re-run of the "Once in a lifetime" referendum? But surely that means also that Remainers are guilty of the "Foul" Shout! Pot. Kettle and Black springs to m...

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

Hi all, Would it not be possible for folk like Reohn2 to just accept the fact that people are perfectly entitled to vote for either option, then after they admit to a choice not be verbally battered until they explain the last detail of their reason, just accept that they made a democratic choice?

Hi all, Spot on MickF :D . Been a lot of orrible estate building in my lifetime, no shops, no medical facilities, no schools, even no pavements? Yes, Runcorn New Town! I met the head of the development mob, Lord Sefton of Garston. I let him have it about the "Fooless Town", couldn't walk a...
