    Obituary Thread - 2018

    Very sorry to hear your news, my condolences.
  2. This, this, a thousand times this. We don't critics Corbyn for his politics, but for his (lack of) ability.

    I really struggle to believe people can be this dumb, and then someone comes along and supplies the evidence. The only reason that the millennium bug was a non event because 100s of 1000s of people spent millions of dollars and several years making sure it was a non event!

    Until someone comes along who can demonstrate some real leadership and the backbone to tell the country how it really is instead of kicking the hardest decisions down the road then expect successive governments to keep going back to "the people" for the tough decisions.
  5. Total and utter bollards. The only damage being inflicted on the Labour party at the moment is coming from the Labour party leadership itself and it's devotees.
  6. Well there's a suprise. Not. Bex Bailey targeted by trolls after criticising Labour over sexual harassment probe Under no circumstances is decent is to be tolerated.

    This is how you interview a brexteemist: Outspoken Brexiteer Andrew Bridgen was left silenced by a radio host in a cringe-inducing interview about the Irish border They don't like details do they?
  8. And filthy Blairite Robin Cook.

    The obvious thing that this report ignores is the fact that FOM is reciprocal. Where's the information about the benefits and/or drawbacks of migration to the EU from UK citizens?

    That looks like the worst of all worlds: "A radical blueprint for a free trade deal between the UK and the US that would see the NHS opened to foreign competition, a bonfire of consumer and environmental regulations and freedom of movement between the two countries for workers, is to be launched by prominent Brexiters."

    And the thing is, from a technical POV it is more sensible to retain diesel as a power source for the big lumbering beasts made by JLR than the small hatchbacks that the likes of Volkswagen cheated the emmision tests on. Personally I'm not convinced that brexit is 100% responsible for the downturn in JLR's business. In recent years they have been doing very well in the export market which you would think would be helped by the fall of the pound. However, that isn't to say Speth was wrong about the future impact to their business; any disruption to JIT will have a negative impact, especially if they're already having problems.

    BBC R4 followed up Jenkins appearance this morning on The Today Programme with Norman Lamont (the chancellor who did his utmost to completely bankrupt the country in a single day) on The World At One who was allowed to waffle on for almost 10 minutes of mostly utter nonsensical wishful thinking, mostly unchallenged. I could have done a more challenging interview, countering the points he made with factual statements off the top of my head, never mind with the aid of researchers and some time to prepare.

    On the subject of funding: Jacob Rees-Mogg’s hard Brexit group questioned by parliamentary authorities over funding So the ERG are flouting parliamentary expenses rules and using tax payers money to fund their party within a party. Could you imagine the scandal if someone like Momentum were to do this?
