    They're not worried about the likes of me or you.
    But the one in Denmark has them worried...

    Sami the only way the RAF can help is to strap a JDAM inertial guidance kit to her and drop her down mackerels chimney! Bit of luck we can solve 2 problems for one that way!

    Worth adding all the international outcry about the Venezuela mess its even more ironic if they think they can chose to ignore the referendum result! Its a slippery slope of precedents that are going to happen one way or another in the next couple of weeks thats for sure.

    I could understand it if the half that voted to stay in the EU were the ones going nuts but it's those that voted to leave that are going bananas.

    I can see a fantastic follow up to "Yes Minister" and "Yes Prime Minister" on the horizon.

    Are you slow or something, Gordon ? The people who voted "leave" expected to see that happen. Now here it is two weeks shy of two years and nothing substantive has been done. What has been done is pretty obviously a charade.

    I'd be pissed too.


    17.4 million, adama ? That's about five million less than the city of Shanghai

    I learnt a long while ago that what you can " expect " to get and what you actually get in politics are two entirely separate issues.

    Barking at the moon won't solve anything.

    From what I read, there's actually no proof of any of "her babies". There was a few staged photos for the media but she could have borrowed the baby, and did refer to it a couple of times as "it".

    The bigger thing is this is spread across the news in 3x countries - there is another "returnee" in both the USA and one in Canada.
    So they are virtually the exact same stories all at the same time, just in different countries with a different token kid.
    Damn that's a co-incidence...

    Edit - Oh, and Ireland have also got one "of their own" in the news too wanting to come home.
    Deliver the lot of them to Assad and let him deal with them. They went to his country and fought against him...

Sure making it across texas may be different, but in the uk, a major uprising would be interesting, I don't believe with out millatery intervention they could stop us. I don't believe the millatery here would fight 17.4 million of us to stop us either.

    I think democratically elected leaders need to realize there in the position they are because of some pretty bloody civil wars in most instances, they would be seriously naive to think that could not reoccur here if they want to keep playing the power grab game.

    Like i say how ever this now goes down im pretty certain its going to end in severe violence just down to the Ireland issue alone. Love to be proved wrong, but i can not see a lot of people accepting any outcome, then like my self there's thoes that are more concerned if the vote outcome is ignored than merely what it was on. Gotta remember this is the not overly dissimilar to whats kicked off the problems in Venezuela. Ignore do process, fudge votes and the world crys fowl.
    If Brexit doesn't happened they'll just carry on moaning into their beer down at the club.

    Years ago I used to be a shop steward. I was getting lots of issues from members to take to the management. Some were valid complaints but a lot were trivial. I mentioned this to the Convenor ( chief shop steward ) one day.
    He gave me a great piece of advice.

    He said " The next time somebody comes to you with a trivial complaint just say to them - Come on, me and you, we'll go and see the management together regarding this issue."

    I started to do that and the number of times the guy said " Well it's not that important really Tyrone, just mention it if you happen to see somebody will you " was amazing. 75&% of the complaints ended up like that.

    Regards Tyrone.

    My 'ol man reckons that most people are "all mouth and no trousers"

    I just read that it looks like May will change tomorrows vote because she knows she's going to loose again.
    From a "meaningful vote" to an "advisory vote".

    Does anyone know if she can just go rogue and sign/agree to a Brexit extension without having to get it passed through Parliament?

    My understanding is, regardless of whether she asks on her own behalf or after a majority vote, it requires the consent of all 27 other EU countries to grant the extension.

    Going to be interesting no matter what. Fortunately we're in a no-lose position on this one.

    That may have been true, but if the yellow jackets in France are anything to go by that may be changing.

    The French have a long history of " revolting ", we don't.

    Nah, Tyrone's right, ………and don't think actually leaving the EU will stop the Brexitiers moaning either.

    Yup.
    Because even if there is proper Brexit, you have to then have a leader and a gov who then wants to drive the country in the right direction that best suits the country.
    And with the gov and opposition that we have, and the one sided public service too, I expect the only driving there will be is straight back to the bosom of mother Merkel...

    I hope he is right, but i think you may find the younger generations are changing there point of view to some degree. Peoples attitudes are not what they were 30 years ago. I see more and more of the bellow kinda views - actions in the real world.

    ad 1. Government? As things are at present clue me into who you think could form a majority government and with which parties? What in your opinion is "the right direction" and would any majority agree with you?

    ad 2. Germany is the largest and richest country in the EU but why do you keep on about Merkel as if she runs it? Look at how many politicians each EU country has in the EU parliament. Which EU countries has the UK worked and cooperated with to get a majority? That's what counts. It'd be nice if you and some others would learn some facts and not what you seem to be brainwashed into believing.

    The old "When you point a finger 3 are pointing back at you" is apt. You've made the mess you're in all by yourselves. I suggest you sort it out yourselves without trying to blame others.
