  1. Maybe that explains why the party seems to be run in a Trumpesq way via his Twitter cabal these days - a certain self selected few making proclamations on the dear leader's behalf.

    Which of course contradicts the "EU making it difficult for the UK to leave as a form of punishment" narrative from certain brexteemists.

    Same here; 20 odd years playing rugby can do that to a body!

    Absolutely. It's the EUs duty to look after the interests of it's members. Post brexit the UK will no longer a member of the EU therefore there's no obligation on the EU to consider the UK's interests. The EU also only has a limited amount of flexibility as most of the future relationship is codified in treaties and other binding legislation which can't be changed unilaterally just to make life comfortable for what will be a third country. If this rational approach is taken I don't see how on earth you can conclude that the EU are punishing the UK.

    Yesterday I had to take the car for a service in Speke. I also needed to visit an estate agent in the Penny Lane area (I do realise that these locations will mean nothing to 99% of people on here), so to kill two birds with one stone I decided to walk from the service center to the estate agent and back, a round trip of 7.1 miles. Just under 15,000 steps in 2 hours 6 minutes. Timed perfectly as they were just parking the car up as I arrived back at the service center. Mind you at just over £400 for the service it was a very expensive couple of hours excercise!

    And yet people will insist that there's nothing xenophobic about the this government's brexit motives.

    That's £100,750; not a figure to be sneezed at. Well done brexit for making British business less competitive.
  8. You're wrong. The secular Muslims I know do. Miliband is, I believe, an atheist not a secular Jew. But thinking about it they're more like Miliband, non believers - ex Muslims I suppose. As an aside; while touring last year David Baddiel would post a picture on twitter of his hotel breakfast giving and inviting comments on it's quality. Without fail this harmless bit of fun would invite a torrent of anti-Semitism abuse because he, according to the abusers shouldn't be having bacon, sausage or black pudding. His choice of items on his breakfast plate really seemed to upset them. Bizarre.

    Johnson went full on Trump some time ago. Best ignored.

    My mum fits into the category mentioned, she has pretty much quoted those exact words to me. She was 2 years old when Germany surrendered and had just turned 3 when it was the Japanese turn. I don't think she did that much to help the war effort if I'm honest.

    Quite. An adult in 1930 (18 yo) would be 107 now!

    Quite. The number that really counts and most accurately reflects the situation is 3.8. 3.8% was the total difference between leave and remain in the vote. 3.8% is within the accepted margin of error for opinion polls.

    Same here with certain members of my family and one or two friends, but from the other side of the fence so to speak.

    I think this reply tweet exposes that as a load of all bollards.
