I'm  so very tired of all of it. Especially the fact the rich don't suffer.

The well connected ones wont..
I'm tired of it as well, but that's what they're banking on....a roll over acceptance.

Fuck that, it's not happening.

Theresa May's xenophobia writ large.

There are other in their 90's being hit with the same shit.

Three weeks to go and Liam Fox's "easiest deal in history", in regard to us leaving the EU, is what?
It can't be an empty promise, from a Tory?
(Lets mark it down as some toff talking shit about a decision he's unlikely to suffer the consequences of.)

If parliament have no consensus, it's has to go back to the people who employ them.
If we still vote to leave, then they'll have permission to leave hard.

And, as an aside, Scotland will be independent within the next 20 years (we're sick of the shit).  :undecided:

Felix (cat food) know the Brexit score, they've come up with Felix Concoctions...bit of main ingredient mixed with some cheaper shite (Chicken and crab, Turkey and Wildebeest, Fish and something vaguely fishy
etc. :cheesy:

Hey, chicken is 30% more expensive now than it was a few years ago and when it comes down to feeding the family, or the fucking cat, the cat's on flavoured garbage.  :cheesy:

When you look at the ingredients they don't have much of the named flavour of food, chicken as you mention, so they make do with noses of pig and cow and things.
I ended up buying stuff online, Elk and goose and duck as well as the usual, at 96% of the stated meat. Dear though.

I see we're on the way to a No Deal. Bastards.

I guess politicians want a disaster happen to this country. Voted against the agreement yet again. They will never be pleased. Its about time to send them to proper jobs for 5 years before they become a politician

Tomorrow they vote on taking no deal off the table, then they'll vote extending Article 50, then they'll debate wtf to do after that.

Problem is there's a 3 way (and largely incompatible) split.

Soft Brexit (put your left leg in)
Hard Brexit (take your left leg out)
No Brexit (do the hokey cokey and you shake it all about)

Meanwhile the country, Britain's international reputation and the economy are going to hell in a handcart.

Michael Gove either has a good doctor, or a good coke dealer (very discrete).
He seems like he's on amphetamines.

I note he called the Labour Party, the Hokey Cokey party today (echoing what I said above)

What's that about?  :huh:
Did I hear it somewhere else and repeated it?

btw...as usual (and it happened twice in the space of four hours last night) the BBC cut to some shit before the leader of the 3rd largest party in the UK made his response,
You probably wont care that its the SNP (that's fair enough), but that shit didn't happen when the LibeDems were the 3rd largest party, so deepens the concerns that the BBC are biased.
It would have been an extra couple of minutes of coverage, but no......it's a non event and a two party system as far as the BBC are concerned.

p.s. All the UK news (BBC/SKY) seem to talk about is the process, they're not really talking about the consequences.
They're quite happy to sit in their bubble inside a bubble (that tented village they have, yakking on about how how it's not going anywhere) and interview politicians all day long.
The very politicians who are unable to come to any consensus over Brexit.


It's not News , we know that.


Maybe a Hard Brexit is politically expedient for all parties, they just don't want to say that, because we could be fucked, but they could all deny responsibility.
The Tories will say they tried (and failed)
The Labour Party will say...err, they wanted something different? (I'm no sure what they want tbh)
The SNP will say we got dragged out, Indyref 2 now (which I fully endorse   :wink: )


btw...point is Euro News has been a far better feed today....they even had Farage on, who behaves a bit differently in front of European MP's.

So according from today's vote, at least there won't be a no deal brexit.

At least that's the good news, but the margin was small, that is kind of worrying

No new referendum. This is, oddly the most complex and important set of parliamentary decisions made in my lifetime, and I go back to Magna Carta. John was totally pissed, I can tell you!

They have voted to delay Brexit, but will the rest of the EU follow suit?

Tricky issue with Spain

And Trump should keep his opinions to himself

True, though Spain will do what Germany tells them. I'm fairly sure the EU is sick to death of us by now and want a solution fast.
Trump is a nutter, and lots of other things I can't be bothered to type.

More Brexit fatigue

Brexiters are just milking the problems of the country

They want to ruin the country so they can cash in with the misery of a no deal

Mystery Box economics.
Apparently the City has lost £1 trillion in managed assets (and 7000 jobs with it) already.

I can only summise that the real reason behind a no deal brexit is currency speculation

The Pound going up slightly today after an agreed delay to the aforementioned subject

Since Scotland is the senior partner in the UK (James I/VI) I think we should put HM The Queen in charge.  She'd do a much better job (the Scots got the stupid referendum right).

Queen Elizabeth I?
We're a bit more republican than you'd have been told.

Hardly anyone in Scotland cares about the monarchy (minority Orangers and Tories mainly), but we'll give her her place.

However, you may have a point. Too much cold weather making too many up there bad tempered.

A legacy of Calvinist Presbyterianism (even in an increasingly secular Scotland) has resulted in us being a bit plain spoken.
i.e. If I think you're talking pish, I'll say so, and if you think I'm talking pish...you'd better have a good reason.

If you do, then fair do's.  :smiley:

You can't get simpler than that......(it's common in the north, not just Scotland)

I was Presbyterian until I was six, then Methodist until I was twelve, then I was allowed to see the light and give it all up.

I have a half sister who goes to church, but beyond that I don't know anyone who's particularly religious.
The catholic side of the family go through the motions, but it's more out of tradition than faith.

What degree of shite is it that a shite Prime Minister with a history of promising much, but delivering not much, has 'promised' to resign, if MP's vote for her shite deal?

Does scatology have a ranking system?
Is 'distinctly whiffy' on it?

Of all the votes last night, the two most popular were another referendum and an EEC type deal.
