  1. Boris has suggested another bridge. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-42743909 Let's hope it's not as big a waste of money as his last attempt https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2017/apr/28/garden-bridge-dead-38m-public-money-repaid-boris-johnson Perhaps they could get Carillion to built it?
  2. Surely if the Rangers supporters believe them to be the same club, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.
  3. Our new position in the EU

    Of course it will carry on, but we'll all be a lot worse off for Brexit. I don't have "a few decades" if I'm lucky I have one. Countries decline and become poorer, it's not the rich and famous who suffer, it's the everyday people. Spain and Portugal were dominant nations in the past, but declined and their populations suffered in relative poverty. It took Spain a civil war, a fascist dictator and membership of the EU to bring them up to date. As I keep saying I remember this country in the sixties and seventies. The EU has been the making of us, and IMO Brexit will be the unmaking. The likes of Murdoch, the Barclay brothers, Paul Dacre, Richard Desmond, Nigel Lawson and the likes of James Dyson don't care about the rest of us, what they want is the right to become even more rich and powerful with no one to gainsay them. That's what the hysterical ranting about traitors is about. They see this goal within reach and are frightened that it will be taken away before they can grab it. It's an absolute disgrace that there doesn't seem to be an opposition politician with real power,willing to stand up and say this.

    Have you read Shadow's post? He's a lot more articulate than I could ever hope to be. Brexit is going to be a disaster for our country. No amount of savings in our contributions are gong to make up for the losses, financial, cultural and political that we are about to experience because of the blind ambition to rule without constraint that those backing the Leave campaigns have. I don't doubt your sincerity, but I honestly believe that you and all who think like you are dupes. Should Brexit actually happen I think you will realise it more and more. Unfortunately it will be too late for you, and the rest of us.
  5. So did I. Dealt with them on and off for over thirty years, never a problem

    Auchan on Ave Charles De Gauille, Coquelles is very cheap, even duty paid. And very convenient for the tunnel.

    And of course Calais are licking their lips at the possibility that they'll once again become a duty fee area, calling it the "cherry on the Brexit cake."
  8. In my experience, this is unlikely to happen. I've tried to be on good terms with some of them, they don't want to know. What they want to do is post every snippet of anti Labour news they find on this forum. I have never been pro-active politically, only reactive. Once a dispute has escalated though, who knows where it will stop? To quote Sir Arthur Harris, "sow the wind, reap the whirlwind."
  9. Our new position in the EU

    You know and I know that this is not an accurate figure because there are so many diverse ways of working out our contribution. This is just the headline figure that the Leave campaign use. http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/how-much-does-membership-of-the-eu-actually-cost-the-uk-a6972976.html
  10. Our new position in the EU

    I can't speak for the car industry, only the sector in which I was involved, heavy engineering, and certainly in the early noughties their quality was abysmal. But then many of their factories began to be run and managed by experienced Korean and Japanese companies and the quality from these factories improved. Of course, despite the products being made in China, they bore labels saying produced in Japan, or Korea.
  11. I have certainly criticised Labour on here as recently as last week, because despite the mess the country is in, their poor standing the opinion polls, and the ambivalent attitude to Brexit of McDonell and Corbyn. You never see similar criticism from the Tory supporters on here.
  12. I've no idea John. What I was getting at was that the whole media effort against Ed Milliband was IMO anti semitic in flavour. To claim outrage at seeing it in another party is somewhat hypocritical.
  13. You mean like the faux outrage over alleged anti Semitism in the Labour Party?
  14. Our new position in the EU

    You missed the bit where English judges sit on the ECJ. You missed the bit where we get loads back in grants from the EU, and who gets it is decided by the EU not by the Tory party based on what suits them best electorially.
  15. Our new position in the EU

    Except the evidence of the past. Tell me, why, if the arguments for leaving are so strong, do those who favour leaving have to use insulting names for those who disagree with them,. like "remoaner" or even "traitor?"
