So the 22% for Labour all came from UKIP? ;)

Re: Shitty landlords

Their latest response claims the tenancy dates back before the deposit schemes started (it doesn't, it started two months after and was renewed a year later.). They're asking us to provide photographic evidence that we didn't remove skirting boards and a piece of the fireplace. :? And they're making...

Shitty landlords

Well, I'm now moved at last into my new home. We now have the troublesome task of getting my wife's deposit back from the landlords. She's lived there for 12 years. She was a single mum with two young kids when she moved in and in a position where she had to take whatever she could get. The landlord...

Re: Police [don't] invade Equadorian embassy [yet].

Well that's it really - people are giving up their moral compass over him because they like his work. It's possible he's been framed in an elaborate international conspiracy, but it's also conceivable that he's got a genuine case to answer to in Sweden which coincidentally has given the USA a chance...

Re: Police [don't] invade Equadorian embassy [yet].

I think the Americans were always going to try to extradite him, what was in question was if that would happen direct from the UK. 7 years ago it wouldn't have happened. Now, I'm not so sure. I'm largely indifferent to it all. What annoys me about the whole thing is the way it's reported as though t...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Not surprising. It's part of the bullshit of the EU. 26 agree on a course of action. One objects. So they end up doing something that no one was asking for and doesn't make much sense. :shrug: Oh, and one has to wait outside like a naughty schoolkid because they want to leave, despite being told wh...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Perhaps I missed it in the new but I was surprised by Tusk's surprise at the length of the extension. So May went and asked for June again but it's ended up being October. Is that what we decided and agreed or the member states agreed? If the EU want us to have a change in parliament and/or a secon...

Re: Brexit....or in.

I don't really understand the EU's position now. Extension without the possibility of renegotiating is utterly pointless and just damaging. I could understand if they said they won't renegotiate if the UK is insistent on x or y policy, such as leaving the single market and customs union etc. But ju...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Although I'm a little behind the times - I assumed that the 6 month delay rather than a year was specifically to avoid EU elections. Nope. EU elections are next month, so they'd become necessary for any extension beyond then. If we don't hold them, we leave with no deal on June 1st. They also say i...

Re: Brexit....or in.

UKIP up 6% is the big tell tale, for me. I'm not sure it says that much. They're up 923 on the 2017 result, but down 4,111 from what they got in 2015. So they've recovered 20% of the votes they lost at the last election. In physical numbers, Labour have lost 13,415 and Conservatives 9,708. In compa...
