  1. " It's good to have you back, it's good to have you back ..... it's good to have you back" I didn't notice much that was particularly new there Parky but if reducing SL to twelve was all about quality what measures were used to verify quality was the problem in the first place? And what criteria were used to ensure it had worked? By the way I don't really want an answer as I'm outa here!

    It is very informative isn't it? Listening to him the other day Nigel Farage sounds like a disciple of a broad church too. There;s a lot of it about.

    "EU leaders have torn apart the Chequers plan. A ‘no deal’ Brexit is now more likely than ever" https://inews.co.uk/opinion/columnists/chequers-brexit-eu-leaders-macron-no-deal/ And ..... May says Chequers is 'only credible proposition on table' – but Tusk disagrees https://www.theguardian.com/politics/video/2018/sep/20/theresa-may-chequers-eu-donald-tusk-salzburg-video As well as ...... Theresa May’s humiliation in Salzburg makes it clear: the Brexit on offer is nothing like the one we were promised https://inews.co.uk/news/brexit/what-theresa-mays-salzburg-humiliation-tells-us-about-brexit/ No wonder we are all a bit confused.

    As opposed to the truly neo-liberal endgame of the 19th century. Mind who was the person who thought a good title for Thatcherite policies was liberal?

    That's right it's just one of those arguments between the Makeitupateers on both sides which cloud over the real issues involved in almost every facet .... like one of those games where you try and capture the flag of the opposing teams there are very few who really care either way and they're the ones who'll drag anyone who listen along with them while the wise ones find somewhere safe to hide and sleep.
  9. You'll have admin askin' to put these on the Tory thread please next! Not just Trump's America sadly ... And I'm afraid there's no turning back! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOwvpRZKR4I Sara Bareilles - Breathe Again

  12. Now come on ckn that analogy metaphor only works if it ever happened and I for one have never seen it take place at Central Park, the New Place or Old Trafford so please stick to reality because life under the Tories is bad enough without losing a sense of balance and reason as well. One thing I would say about the activity you alluded to was that it worked .... distraction is a wonderful tool when used well. Is NI separate from the Teflons then, though? Yes being hidden by promises of US trade deal jam tomorrow while real people suffer real hardship and of course it's not their fault, they're putting in more money than ever before in real terms and they were just clearing up a very chaotic system and it's all the fault of those unreasonable workers nurses, doctors, firemen, teachers etc etc etc when it goes wrong. Which it is I suppose if they voted for them!

    Nor Scotland or Wales either in all this. And the only difference I've noticed is that the Scots seem to be only too aware of what's happening and may always have independence to work towards. Maybe the Welsh are too in love with the royal family and union to take a similar route? Apart from hiring a "what we're up to" balloon, putting it in neon on the London Eye and taking out a one page add in every single newspaper and magazine in the country ( apart from the TGG ones obviously!) they couldn't have made it clearer or more apparent what they're up to. And if you're the sort of person who buys into it the Cheap Food bus election may be just around the corner! But if you love being a Teflon just like the UK questions above it won't matter so you won't care unless you need support to keep your non-sticks in power. Then you'll care loads till the next large majority and every time after that they can say "So that's where Northern Ireland is!"
  14. My feeling now is that I hope Jeremy Does quit.
  15. Hello Bob yes it is, isn't it but having a life is a blessing and a curse, don't you reckon?
  16. I love that song basic socialist dichotomy in a lyric. Reminds me of a production of Trinity Tales I went to see!

    Nah, it's well behind all those whatever happened to Labour's Broad church in one sentence and we should chuck momentum out in the next. Be your age, John! Mind you they did top that with the essential "There's no place in the Labour Party for Socialism!"

    I didn't know which thread this was most appropriate for so I'll put it on both, "Deal or no deal on Brexit, the Teflons aren't fit for office" http://www.thenational.scot/news/16887017.deal-or-no-deal-on-brexit-the-tories-arent-fit-for-office/ Scotland is where I get all the real news from now.

    Eric Perez

    I think we should change the name of all the threads on here to "Embroiled in a Silly Argument!" each followed by a number, obviously now R &P has been sorted out expansion would be number 1. Time to move on now, even if Keighley were the most deserving side in the entire universe then. And in the words of the wonderful Tina Turner "What's Perez got to do with it, go to do with it?"
  22. Just look at the above for an example if you're not sure what I meant, # I won't tolerate Labour's intolerance
