    Tommy Robinson

    When the guard comes down slightly. Bannon, who has links with Hungry, Italian populist etc. Will be interesting is Lennon jumps into UKIP on his release, Batten is a big fan. Farage so far has been wise enough to keep an air gap between him/his UKIP and the EDL, etc, the new UKIP guy might be seeing it as a way back for them.

    Our new position in the EU

    There is a real chance that the parliamentary maths is heading to a stalemate (for all sides). May might face a vote of no confidence but looks likely to win it (so it seems right now!) and would then be safe for a year. May can't do anything now without labour/SNP/LD votes as the ERG are looking to do a death by a 1000 votes. There isn't a majority for any second referendum. There doesn't seem to be a majority for anything unless some very strange bedfellows emerge.

    And a subject that is wider than Mo, as lots of heroes through the centuries would be pedos with Battens logic.

    Our new position in the EU

    And Airbus don't have a suitable replacement for the E3 Sentry. Boeing is the only option, unless we do our own again, which would bring back painful memories of the Nimrod AEW. Another aside, we only need to replace the E3 because we cut back on maintenance so they are now knackered. The USA and other countries who use them (and maintained and upgraded them properly) are expecting them to stay in service for another decade at least.

    Our new position in the EU

    It seems to be a stretch. The Times was reporting the Boeing deal on the 19th June and Airbus went public on the 22nd.

    He's not Afrikaans. He says he got the flag when working in South Africa. He also has a Soviet Hammer and Sickle flag as a momento from working in Russia.

    According to some thats just a sign of being a masterful negotiator playing 3D chess. Others might think that he's a grifting BS artist who got lucky.

    TRL HELPDESK - Injury compensation

    My main warning is be ready for the insurance firm to use every trick in the book (including surveillance) if you have any permanent injuries.

    The idea that the Repulicans and Trump are not at the heart of the moneyed elite is laughable. In fact its quite embarrassing.

    Well he doesn't have a manifesto (its not the way they do it), he makes various promises, but due to the system they don't need details. Its up to the GOP to do the detail. He promised tax cuts for the middle classes. The GOP gave the biggest cuts to the rich. He promised tax cuts that would make people like him pay more. He's paying less (we'd know exactly how much he profited if he had released him tax returns, but he's too shady). So now you can say its not his fault the poor and working class got betrayed because its the GOP not him thats screwed them. He promised a better version of Obamacare. He's failed to deliver. I mean I could post the news of a lady trapped by a train in Boston pleading with her rescuers not to call an ambulance as she could not afford it to highlight the messed up system but I'm sure you can deflect.

    He has betrayed them on tax cuts, he is trying to betray them on medicare. The cuts that he has to bring in to pay for the tax cut will fall overwhelmingly on the poor and the working class.
