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

Let us go back to basics?

Bi]oris wants out but can not be bothered to devise or put forward a true plan.

So a half-hearted plan, designed to fail, and then claim that "we were reasonable and incite the 27% to a frenzy of blaming the EU are being intransigent, and justifying no deal.

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

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

To use a much-abused supporter of brexit phrase.

You voted to regain control of our borders - You won... get over it

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

Corbyn's trouble is he is more a chairman than a leader? Is that a good thing or bad? I don't know. IMHO it's a good thing,the problem is the way the rightwing media have labelled him as an out and out communist. But I trust him to make life easier for the struggling. And to put the country back on...

Must try harder.

It was very common and a source of considerable vehicle strife and I had a bit of a thing about it and had challenged folk in the pas...

Re: antisocial parking the norm?

We have massive problems with a local Car Boot Sale. Every inch of the grass areas, pavement and road are filled with antisocial car parking. The School puts out cones, that are simply moved by the drivers and park there anyway. We have now started a campaign of photographing them and placing them o...
