Re: First escooter death?

There were two vehicles involved in this incident. One was a lorry. A lorry killed a cyclist at the same spot last year. The roundabout layout has been described as confusing. Why are we all discussing the escooter, not the lorry's presence or the roundabout? I think because it's believed the scoot...

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

It's incredible what some people will believe if it fits their narrative :roll: Incredible? I think some folk just enjoy trolling. I didn't like saying as we already have one on this thread,but....... Given that most of what they have done in the meetings so far all the Brexit "party" hav...

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

we are just about to get a new prime minister who has no qualms about a no deal Brexit. It's incredible what some people will believe if it fits their narrative :roll: It seems as if "andrec" would follow them (almost?) anywhere. But we are still waiting for a single example of bad UK law...

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

I don't want a foreign parliament to have any say in the laws we have to obey in the UK, and I have every confidence in the people of the UK to make their own laws, including those on the environment, safety, food standards, human rights etc. Alas, even under the greatest fantasy of Brexit: "l...

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

He leads a party that won the Euro elections and advocates Brexit the side that won a majority in the referendum. It seems to me that does justify regular QT appearances. Though I agree having a greater number of different Brexit Party politicians on QT would be a good thing. This is the real chang...

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

So you would ban Farage from TV? Think of the regimes where that sort of cleansing happens. Think where that goes. Ban him no? Give him less airtime? Definitely. His position in the world doesn't warrant the attention he gets.. He leads a party that won the Euro elections and advocates Brexit the s...

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

The Green Party at least have one MP and they don't get anything like the coverage of Ukip and Farage. Farage's message is so consistently negative. I do so wish he could paint a picture of his "sunlit uplands" in a bit more detail so we could all have a decent shot at offering critique. ...

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

... the number of appearances of UKIP members and of Farage on flagship programmes such as Question Time is a disgrace. ... Maybe that's why both sides think the BBC is biased against them: remainers see Farage as a supporter of brexit, leavers see him as an embarrassment. I don't see Farage as an ...

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

Except freight through the ports? You mean all those lorries carrying imports from the EU won't get through and all the people in the EU whose living depends on them will happily accept the consequences such as unemployment? We'll see. Everyone will manage. The apocalyptic predictions of the more e...

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

Nope, you are still missing the point that it was advisory only and was not in any way or form legally binding. The rest of your post is about as accurate as your claims that the REferendum had any standing In the UK we govern by a parliamentary democracy, not referendum. A referendum can, occasion...

The original Referendum should have been on the terms previously given to the `SCOTS on Independence

50% of the eligible voters, that way we would not be being led over the cliff by a vocal minority

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

Hands up anyone here who will consider, at the next election, voting for a party that takes a view on Brexit that is not their own. Why imagine that normally Labour voting folk in strongly Leave areas are any different? Like the rest of us, they will put this issue ahead of all the others, and they...

Re: What can we learn from LGBTx campaigns?

However, it also shows that when you have too many different agendas and aims within one community then there will be internal strife and division
