    Maybe worth a thought. Prohibition I believe increased drinking, it didn't reduce it.

    I think you just proved my point. I was just issuing a warning. Nothing more,nothing less.


    Not ot too much to ask you haunt some stronger forum to support your perceived restraint of trolling. Location is key.

    Haunting after all is much more effective if you have the rep, if you are a ghost, and if you select a graveyard. Panhandling in a Starbucks is inappropriate also. The difference is in Starbucks you are in the real world. On the internet it is easy to lose proper manners and professionalism.

    I have no idea what you are talking about.

    Brexit is the topic not Donnie and not American prohibition. Cut and dry.

    Did you know that Donnie happened to be in the UK and that he has been talking about Brexit? And that there have been protests all over objecting to the president's visit?

    Yet we still cant cross that line. OK then.

    Thank you Bucktruck, you beat me too it.

    To the forum Moderator ;- Spinit

    Not only as Bucktruck stated about President trump being in the UK, .in the event of us in the UK finally leaving the EU (latest forecast end Nov 2019), in the shape of trade deals etc etc etc we will be dealing with the POTUS …….who will still be Mr Trump, …………….yet we're not permitted to bring him in to a thread on Brexit.

    Please clarify.
    Thanking you for your time.

    Visit is to the Queen and then Normandy not Brexit. He holds no say in what you decide. Relevance is the key. He does not hold sway to the course you do. (UK)

    A solid discussion on how he is weighing in on the topic is valid yet someone can make that connection.

    POTUS had talks with Nigel Farage, Brexit would have been one of the subject discussed in those talks.

    Edit - Just remembered, Mr Brexit, Nigel Farage was first European politician I believe to visit POTUS after the US elections. Correct me if I am wrong.

    You are correct, he was the first British politician to visit Trump after the election I just looked it up.

    It will be interesting who replaces her. It does not look like a good position to fill with all that has happened.

    Doesn't really matter does it, ….if you bolted the entire Palace of Westminster together, it still wouldn't make a wanker.

    I'm not too sure.
    IMO, Westminster has a very multi-disciplined team*

    To keep the mobsterator happy i'll explain making that statement engineering related...
    When I worked at a black box company, we had a design review meeting one day with QA, Prod Eng, Sales - all departments were represented although as usual, no-one had any input apart from engineering.
    Afterwards, I was talking with the electronics engineer (he was a small Welshie - spitting image of Mr Potato Head and a fantastic guy) who proclaimed;-
    Well, they were all there in that meeting weren't they - a proper multi-disciplined meeting. Full of Masterbators, Dickheads, and Turds...

    No idea who replaces may, and not sure it matters.

    The exiteers stirred the pot to rile the discontented.
    With lies.

    Now all the popula is against all the parties. With reason.

    The exiteers lied and could not get anything passed.
    The remainers could not get anything decided.
    The others shat on both above.
    Half of both exiteers and remainers voters thought the party was too soft or too hard on the issue, on each side, in all parties.

    The one thing no politician or party has done is address the issues, explain consequences, articulate solutions, and move on.
    Bunch of wankers, all of them.

    The total lack of working for the common good is astonishing.
    From both major parties and both sides of the issue.
