  1. I think you will find that ERG voted down May's deal twice. Now the glove puppet Johnson has come back with a weaker deal. Regardless of how this plays out, the UK will not be the UK, as we know it now, in less than 20 years. The more I read on here, the more I realise that the right are slightly bonkers about a vote, that is fundamentally not enforceable and to a high degree broke laws. I think the real reason is they want to sit on an island, in their Y fronts, with knotted hankie on their heads. You may despise the left, just remember that the next time you use the NHS, get sick pay, have a paid holiday. Just some of the things Thatcher opposed. Because that battle is still being fought.
  2. Excellent display of missing the point.
  3. Nope, as I think there is enough skill in the EU, and I don't have to spend time and money going down that route. Has to be an exceptional case, brain surgeon, rocket scientist or some other complex field of science. Of course I am erratic (protean is a better word), anything else would be dull. How can you run in a forum....hmm.
  4. There are skilled people here that are being held back, the reason why, it's cheaper to bring them in, then train your own. Skilled people have been coming here since 17th century, in the modern era, so your 2009 point is a bit left wanting. But well done, pat your self on the head and have a glass of champagne.
  5. So the Tories take away the nursing bursaries, and then decide to bring in staff from abroad. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-2019-50338073 I'm sure they will flock here, especially to treat some old gammon who insists on being treated by english person, and would probably say 'I voted for you to leave my country'.
  6. Yes I voted remain, and I accept leave won by 1.2m votes. However knowing what we know now, and that 13m didn't vote either way, perhaps they didn't vote because they where happy with the status quo, I think a second vote should be considered depending on what eventually emerges from this basket case of a political system we are all suffering. If leaving is such the right thing to do, why aren't all the facts on the table? In all honesty, I trust none of them.
  7. She would be the first to go. The problem is that once elected, they get a Teflon coat and can virtually get away with anything. Look at the expense scandal, how many years did MP's from virtually all parties get away from that. That wasn't ignorance from Mogg, he knew exactly what he was saying. He is a smart, calculating snake. Why is JRM allowed to run a company where he can have influence on via parliament, why are they allowed to advise on boards. None of that should be happening, and more accountability is required. They should be representing the people that voted for them, once they get distracted, they should be out.
  8. When that particular block was built, it was designed around a single star case, small quote from wiki.. 'Like many other tower blocks in the UK, Grenfell Tower was designed to be operated under a "stay put policy" in the event of fire. The idea was that if a fire broke out in one flat, thick walls and fire doors would contain the fire long enough for the fire service to bring it under control.' It started on the fourth flour, by the time the alarm would have been raised, there is a good chance that single stair case would be full of smoke, 85% of deaths from fires are from smoke inclination. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grenfell_Tower_fire The problem is that the local Tory council thought the building was ugly, and the rich neighbours, complained. The official line is: Cladding is being added on tower blocks built in the 1960s and 1970s such as Grenfell Tower to improve the thermal performance of the flats and in some cases prevent material deteriorating and falling from the existing facades. These flats are often homes to some of the poorest in society and improving the facades may cut their energy bills to less than a half. This also means that they can adequately heat their homes to avoid condensation and mould growth inside. So on a shoe string budget, they 'made it pretty' by using cladding that is banned in Canada, USA, Australia and to a degree also in the UK as it fails parts of the building code, but that was hushed up by May, when her cladding experts didn't give the report to fit her narrative. Now that has the effect of changing the safety of the building, by adding a thermal chimney around the outside of the building. A fault in a budget brand fridge started a fire. Fire follows the path of least resistance, this case the window, and then into the space between the exterior wall and the cladding. That narrow space has a specific effect on the fire, that effect is like shaking up a plastic pop bottle and then stabbing a hole in it. Hence the rapid spread. The Fire Service had no knowledge of this, they where working on the fact of the original design, and the stay put policy. Who is at fault? The contractor and the local council. JRM should resign, because he clearly demonstrated that he had no full understanding of the actual facts.
  9. More proof they should be banned. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-50313620
  10. Good old tories, treating people like poo. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-50302573 Grenfell Tower: Jacob Rees-Mogg criticised for 'insulting' comments, then that bull head thicko, Andrew Bridgen, goes and backs him up! Jacob Rees-Mogg has been criticised for saying it would have been "common sense" to flee the Grenfell Tower fire, ignoring fire brigade advice. Both should resign.
  11. I am not on anyone's team, don't you have some pollution trip you need to be on?
  12. Sarcasm is an ironic or satirical remark tempered by humor, and is identifiable by the inflection of the voice, further more you could say sarcasm only works if it, at least, has a degree of intelligence behind it, a degree of subtleness. That did not. Perhaps you need a better dictionary.
  13. So please enlighten us where that place is? Are you assuming that it was the British who, outright, won WW2?
  14. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-2019-50280848 General election 2019: Nigel Farage will not stand as candidate. So only took him to fail 7 times before the penny drops. Probably realised that he gets a better wedge from his non attendance of the EP.
