Re: Brexit....or in.

Indeed. The political system in the UK needs a major overhaul. I'm not sure what an overhaul would achieve? Politics will still attract corrupt compulsive liars and batshit mental eccentrics. Voters will still generally be polarised by personal circumstances and prejudices. Nobody has really come u...

Re: Brexit....or in.

And the no confidence vote is finally tabled. Bit late really. Amd only against May personally... So actually would affect nothing. :shrug: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-46599895 Yep, just a stunt to hoodwink those who think he's the messiah. So transparent and yet it'll probably work, I e...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Wasn't it Starmer who went rogue and went off script with his speech at the Labour conference?

Re: Brexit....or in.

May wins the confidence vote fairly comfortably. The cynic in me would say the whole thing was a stooge, particularly following the refusal by Labour to call a no confidence vote. Can no longer be a Tory leadership challenge for twelve months, so the hard brexiteers have a choice, May's crappy plan...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Labour are ahead in the polls with popular policies. No they're not. :roll: https://britainelects.com/polling/westminster/ Typically, an opposition party should be well ahead at this stage in a parliament term just because whoever is in power will be garnering negative press. The Tories are getting...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Point number two is hilarious, for example. It's completely incompatible with leaving the EU, and something the EU would never realistically agree to without affecting the other five points. But of course you have to leave the land of the partizans to start paying attention to that..... But then it...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Labour have for months now had 6 factors that must be passed by any Brexit deal, most important of all is protecting jobs and workers rights through frictionless trade. Something that May’s deal doesn’t do. Kier Starmer is the minister responsible for that, and a damn fine politician, but Corbyn ha...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Well given the lack of vote on the proposed deal it's only a matter of time before a vote of no confidence. Which will be amusing cause Corbyn is anti europe.... I'm not convinced that he is. He just likes to object to everything and anything, and so in a generally pro-European House of Commons he'...

Re: Middlesborough v Blackburn Rovers, Sat, 08 Dec 2018, KO 15:00

For what it's worth, we've averaged 1.56 points per game against sides currently in the top half of the table, 1.58 points per game against sides in the bottom half. :shrug:

Re: Brexit....or in.

Not joking, just clearly read all the wrong bits. Just had another quick look at and even Osbournes covering letter is pretty damning. What a shower of shit Cameron and his little gang were. Fair enough. Of course, it cost Osborne his political career when his bluff was called. But the "think tanks...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Thanks for ‘saving me the bother of trawling through’. I had a quick look anyway and could only see a lot of statements about how a leave result in the referendum would cause uncertainty across the business world, resulting in a possible reduction in uptake of contracts. It seemed a pretty fair pre...

I have literally negative time for people who think we shouldn't engage in growth as a human race and just focus on the UK.

And I have literally negative time for people who just focus on the EU and forget the human race is found over the whole world. :doh:

Spot the EU members!

Re: Brexit....or in.

You can quibble over the figures, but we are a net contributor to the EU. As we should be. We're fecking rich. Charity does not start at home. I'll remember to mention that next time we're talking about a lack of funding for our police, schools, NHS, etc. But why are we putting it into other relati...
