    Brexit or Eurin?

    Fair enough. On the hard thing... keep telling yourselves often enough and it might come true.😀

    Brexit or Eurin?

    Really? I have just had a chat with your 20 yr old son who has started a new job. His boss has him contracted to work 48 hrs a week, so usually Monday to Friday he works 8am to 6pm, all for £4.50 a hour. He got funny when your lad asked about doing a relevant training course and said if he wanted to do it he'd have to do it in leave time, and he'd have to pay for it himself. Your lad hasn't asked him yet about having that week off for your daughter's wedding, but he knows it will be a difficult conversation. He is having to put aside some of his crummy wages to go into his pension pot, which he is having to build up all on his own. He would speak up but he knows his Boss could just fire him with no recourse. That's the kind of job situation that pic builds in my mind. Could be all rowllocks, but I am a bit non-plussed you had no problem with it bar the last. I would imagine no one in the Commons would be up for the imagined job either - they can't vote themselves 10/11% pay rises on top of heaps, spaff £000s on train tickets and have an amazing subsidised bar. I am sure you are going to come at me telling me your son works as Sales Director in the gold-plated coat hanger business you have building up since you were 12, and that you get up before you got bed, have a handful of grit for breakfast and it never did you any harm.

    No you've edited it ... it's just not as snappy. Would need maybe three buses for that now.

    Tory party eats itself

    JC has made the mistake of turning the whole Labour Party into a 'movement', which is great for Glastonbury and the last 25 minutes of Le Miserables, but no use at taking the 70-75 KEY MARGINAL SEATS you have to take to win a GE. I have gone on about this before - Wyre Forest (Kidderminster), Burton, Northampton South, Worcester North -all those magical far away places. The last GE was (another) weird result as loads of light blue Remainer type Tories didn't turn out because they had the hump about BREXIT, and I suspect a lot of the blue rinse hard core went to the Bingo/Canaries because they thought May had it in the bag. The locals showed the limits of Labour gains. JC is also marmite I'm afraid - I am lifelong Labour but couldn't vote for him, and I have several Leftie mates who feel the same.

    The army got a bit grumpy when he decided to double the size of the TA with Hore-Belisha in Match 1939 and not consult them - but his heart was in the right place. Our tanks remained pants until 1944 (the decent ones being the US Shermans til then), but the spend on Spitfires and radar in the crucial months before war did the trick - just. The RN was the stand out service throughout the war - I've always thought Dunkirk being a bigger moment than Trafalgar in many ways.

    I agree with your analysis. maybe its time to break back down into the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms and do our own thing.😀

    yep - it wasn't great - but I think we can allow him a sporting bye for saving the world from a new dark age.

    There's a whiff of turn up early enough with your boots and you might get a game ....

    Admins - although I like the idea of a 'Tory Party eats its self' to balance the old Labour one, maybe this thread should be merged with the Brexiteurin monster - it's kinda the same pooh stream🤪

    The current crop aspire to be like Churchill, but he wouldn't have even sent them to the newsagents for his havanas.

    Brexit or Eurin?

    Nope. We need grown-ups right now. The Labour Party has become some kind of weird personality cult based in a 1960s/70s nirvana that never existed, while the Tories are about to force a hideous beauty contest style leadership battle and probably a GE following on. We haven't got time for this. Mark Carney, Terry Waite, Alan Sugar, Simon Cowell, Sooty and Sweep - just send anyone who can make a deal of some description. At this rate the politicians will probably balls up a 'no deal' exit - forget to fill a form in and we just stay in. I am almost serious.
