    Trump Protests

    No, nothing like it. Since when did putting the interests of your own country and it's people before those of others make you some kind of power crazed nazi?

    world cup

    It was a close game so should really be played again until we get the result we want. That's how these things work... isn't it?

    boris has left the building

    Me too, and that would include a half hour break for a spot of lunch! The simple way to sort Brexit would of course be to get all the UK and EU industry and business chiefs together in a decent little pub. Have a beer and a few bar snacks and then ask them if they wish to continue with tariff free trade with the UK or whether they'd rather give up on their biggest European market and concentrate on bailing out the weaker economies of the EU instead. Of course the business leaders would go with the free trade option. The problem of course is the politicians would then stick their collective snouts in and balls the whole thing up. You would have to ask WHY any right minded politician would want to do such a thing to their own business communities and workforce, and the answer is quite simple, I've said it many times on here before. The EU doesn't care about the people's of Europe, it doesn't care about peace, it only cares about power.

    Well I don't know any taxi drivers, but I do know plenty of members of the public, some voted to remain and some to leave. Most voted for different reasons, but all voted based on their own (or friends and families) personal experiences. I don't know of a single one who was swayed one way or another by the campaigns from either side. There really was no need to take any notice of any of that when the reality of the European project and its future direction could be seen all around them every day.

    Speak for yourself fella. I don't think the general public are half as daft as our politicians think they are. It's that realisation that scares the living bejesus out of them.

    BREXIT - merged threads

    Good question. I remember watching this interview on the morning of June 24th 2016, the morning after the referendum. I think Peter Hitchens hits the nail on the head with his assessment of both the Labour and Conservative parties. It's clear to anyone who's followed UK politics over the last 30 odd years that the main political parties have been working less and less in the interests of those they represent and more and more for their own, and their party's interests.

    Novochick strikes again!

    Bullets, bombs and explosives are all designed to kill... Especially the 'military grade' stuff. Millions of people over the years have survived being hit or blown up by these weapons.

    Brexit.......more remainer deceit!

    We were lied to alright, back in 1975 when we were told the EEC, as it was then, was simply a trade deal, not the beginnings of a federal European state. The politicians knew alright but with the public's only source of information coming from a pro EEC government and the likes of the BBC the result was a foregone conclusion. Yes, the country was lied to, took the bait, and have been paying the cost ever since. It's interesting to listen to the views of two senior politicians of the time, both at complete opposites of the political spectrum, Enoch Powell and Tony Benn. What they both predicted about the European project quickly became reality, yet they were derided by the establishment at the time and called 'Little Englanders'... ring any bells? The EU is falling apart, the southern countries are in open revolt, the eastern states are not playing by the rules, even the Scandinavian countries are pushing back hard against Brussels. As for the Germans, well I doubt Mrs Merkel will be around much longer if her coalition partners have their way. With Trump threatening a 20% tariff on car imports and a real possibility of a no deal Brexit I expect it won't be long before the German car industry heads are banging on her door. Did you know the UK's contribution to the EU budget is equivalent to the budget contributions of the poorest 19 states of the 'union'. Just let that sink in. Imagine if those 19 states were to leave... where would that leave the EU? It would leave it pretty much where it started in1975, with a much smaller group of countries, with similar economic output and the possibility of a free trading area. No need for a single currency, no need for open borders, no need for a central bank or a separate parliament and court. Just a group of like minded countries trading together freely, just like every other FTA across the world. Doesn't sound too bad does it? Why anyone would want to be in a political union with Brussels is absolutely beyond any comprehension. It's madness, sheer and utter madness.

    Ted Short ex Labour MP for Newcastle Central 1951 - 1976 is the bottom one. No idea on the top one though.

    Bottom left is Harry Cowans, Labour MP for Newcastle Central. Bottom right is Mike Thomas Labour MP for Newcastle East Can't read the others. You'd need to get up close and photograph the signatures only, not the whole back.

    Led up the garden path....

    I was thinking exactly the same thing. 😃 It's funny but the remainers have a new name for those who voted to leave the EU. They call them 'gammons'. A supposed insult aimed at 'white, puffy pink cheeked, old and angry leave voters'. In my minds eye I see Anser as a gammon remainer, I imagine him banging out his responses on his spit speckled keyboard , wide eyed and frothing at the mouth as Beethovens 'Ode to Joy' blasts out in the background, with only the occasional interruption as the Red Cross arrive with his weekly food parcel, courtesy of those lovely fella's at the EU of course!!

    If you're conservative in attitude then the very last thing you would want would be to be shackled to the disgusting behemoth that is the EU.

    Good stuff. You don't have to fight clean. When the gloves come off you do what's necessary to win the fight. I mean let's face it, the Remain campaign ably assisted by the likes of Tony Blair, Barrack Obama and the BBC weren't exactly forthcoming with the truth were they? Now, if we could just have a conservative prime minister in charge of negotiations we could have this all sewn up by teatime.

    Has law and order broken down in this country ?

    There are more coppers, but those extra few men have to police nearly an extra 11 million people.
