  1. I think the last time I watched a full BBC programme was when I sat up and watched the EU referendum results come rolling in. I have Netflix, Amazon Prime and Freeview channels. I don't watch much Tv , and of what I do watch I would say about 1% is from the BBC or i-player. I'll be damned if I'm paying £154 pa for that. If the BBC are as good and as popular as they claim, they'd make a killing by switching to a subscription service. The fact that they haven't (and wouldn't) seems proof enough to me that they don't believe their own hype. As you said in your original post... **** the BBC.
  2. Good man. My sentiments exactly, and if one of their goons comes round asking why I don't have a licence I'll throw some battery acid in his face. Nah, only joking. 😂

    There's no way he would have admitted to that unless he'd been tipped off that the media already had the story. Just a bum covering exercise. On the other hand he might have thought it made him sound 'cool and trendy' and 'down with the kids'. The problem with that of course is that the membership, who are the kingmakers, hold a pretty dim view of that sort of thing. I would suspect the odd 'recreational' dalliance has always been fairly common around the corridors of power, even John Major was partial to a bit of crack back in the 90's.
  4. They knew exactly what they were voting for... another anti-semitic momentum drone. Though given the demographic Labour were targeting I'm pretty sure such 'attributes' would have been more than welcome.
  5. Bit of a sweeping statement, but hey if it makes you feel better crack on.
  6. Edward Heath. Took us into the 'common market' on a lie. John Major. Stabbed Thatcher in the back when she started to resist the goons in Brussels. Tony Blair. An absolute **** of the first order. Dishonourable mentions for Brown, Cameron and May. If I had to pick one for the drop it would have to be Blair, followed very, very closely by Major.
  7. Run a full scan from https://www.malwarebytes.com/ and it will almost certainly cure your problem. There's a free version available.
  8. I think we have to remember that the Brexit Party have only been around for 5/6 weeks, so if they achieve anywhere near what the polling suggests that would be quite some going. Like him or loathe him Farage is very, very good at what he does. His knowledge of the EU institutions and how they function is second to none, and his energy, passion and belief in his cause is palpable. Qualities sadly lacking in so many of those sitting on the benches of Westminster. Boris is an interesting one. He would certainly have the vote of the Conservative party membership, who are staunchly pro leave, but he still has to get through to the final two candidates. There are quite a few tory MP's who don't like Boris and would happily vote tactically to keep him from getting through. In my opinion a massive mistake and would almost certainly alienate the membership even further. Would he soften? Anyone's guess really but I don't think he could. He's been waiting in the wings for this opportunity his entire political career and this could be his best chance at the top job. He's defined himself as an ardent Eurosceptic so he would have to back that up if in power. He's been pushing for a WTO brexit or a comprehensive FTA so anything other than that and he'll be seen as the same as all the rest in parliament, duplicitous. With Boris, it's all about Boris and he'll be looking to be the strong and stable leader he thinks he is. It's all about the legacy. My preferred option would be Dominic Raab.
  9. UKIP will be pretty much wiped out, but I would expect around 35% of the vote to go to the Brexit Party, and a clear win, and I can guarantee that will rock the main two parties to the core. In 2014 UKIP got 26.6% of the vote and 24 seats and it was that result that scared Cameron into calling the referendum. If the BP achieve 35% or thereabouts, having taken large amounts of traditional Tory and Labour voters, it would be realistic to expect a much harder line on Brexit from whoever the new PM might be, and the Labour party will become even more split over Corbyn's lack of direction on Brexit. It's not just the UK results that will make hard reading in Brussels though, not by a long way.
  10. She made it an impossible task, well her and her pathetic civil servants. If you don't believe that the meteoric rise of the Brexit Party hasn't put the fear of God up the Tories and administered the final nail in her coffin then the EU election results could be an eye opener for you.
  11. The second Prime Minister brought down by Nigel Farage. No wonder the political elites hate him. I wouldn't be at all surprised if the Conservatives have inside info about the EU election results, and with the drubbing they received at the local elections it was only a matter of time before she was kicked out the door. Quite possibly the worst PM this country has ever had (and that's saying something). Her tears at the end of her speech reminded me of a child... who'd just been caught out lying.
  12. And that sir is the reason for so called 'climate change' The massive growth in population is attributed in the main to the poorest areas of the world, but nobody wants to be the one to tell them to rein it in a bit. Did you know the average human being expels 1kg of Co2 every day, that's 7.7m tonnes of Co2 going into the atmosphere EVERY DAY. You'd have to plant an awful lot of trees to offset that amount!! There is an organisation dedicated to discussion and solutions to the population problem. It's called 'Population Matters' and it's patron is none other than Sir David Attenborough, although you probably wouldn't have heard too much about it as it doesn't fit with the political climate agenda.
  13. On your first point I have no idea whether Monnet actually said what has been attributed to him, it wouldn't surprise me but with no proof it goes into my 'ignore bin'. On your second point however I can categorically state that there is, and always has been a plan for a federalised Europe. Robert Shuman's declaration, written jointly with Jean Monnet makes quite clear the plan for federalisation. The declaration led to the formation of the European Steel and Coal Community, which in turn led to the EEC, which morphed into the EU. It has always been the aim of the federalists to 'break' the nation states of Europe and bring them all together under a centralised control structure. It's been plain to see from day one, it's made quite clear in all the treaties where all this is leading, and yes, we have sleepwalked into it. It was easy for our treacherous 'leaders' to hoodwink us into believing it was a good thing and nothing to worry about, as they signed over the country to a foreign power in Brussels. It was easy because for most of the time parliament wasn't televised, we didn't have 24 hr news and most importantly we didn't have the internet. Well we do now, and we can SEE what's happening on a daily basis, we can read and hear from a huge number of news sources, not just the BBC and the old broadsheets. In fact the link below re the Shuman Declaration comes from the EU's own website, we could never have seen that a few years ago. Maybe if we could have we wouldn't have voted to remain in the EEC in 1975. https://www.robert-schuman.eu/en/doc/questions-d-europe/qe-204-en.pdf
  14. Indeed, as I expect are some 17.4m others. As an aside I think it's time we saw a lot more candidates of Mike Greene's ilk, whoever they may be standing for. The days of the career politician who studied PPE, worked as an intern, licks some bumcrack and is then parachuted into the nearest safe seat has proven to be a failure of gargantuan proportions. Let's hope the electorate in Peterborough realise what they could be setting in motion here.
  15. Seems like a decent enough chap, has obviously worked hard and is giving back to his local community. https://www.opportunitypeterborough.co.uk/events/mastermind-with-mike-greene/ A marked difference between Mr Greene and Peterborough's last political offering. It would be great to see him win... the shockwaves would shake Westminster to the core, and not before time.
