Streams of refugees forming lines to get into Calais from our side. Us.

To get out of Britain to move somewhere else. Anywhere else, but not France. They have so much bother of their own in different ways.

The election campaign is going to be pure torture.

What, exactly, was the purpose of the last Queen's speech too? How many times in his premiership has Johnson participated in PMQs? It would probably be worthwhile releasing the Russia report ahead of us having an election as well if it indicates that Putin may have a few designs on how that is played out.

My mind was made up ages ago, so they can promise anything they like.
I'm not listening.

Still, different situation in Scotland.
The majority seem to want to break away from the legal, social and political systems we see south of the border, or the erosion of our own in favour of them.

If Russia have a hand in the breakup of the Union, they're going about it kinda backwards. We don't see much anti unionist propaganda given we're mostly ignored or under reported,  but if it's there, it seems to be working on the right wing of politics, given the pro unionist propaganda is far more vitriolic in these matters.

If there's one thing that may have swung more Scottish voters towards Independence, it's the sight of the Tory benches in the House of Commons emptying when the SNP stand up to speak.
What is their motivation for that would you say?

From our side, it looks like contempt.

There was a Malawian comedian on the radio the other day who made a good point/joke.

He said that anyone who thinks that negotiating a trade deal is 'easy' obviously never read the iTunes agreement, and that was just to listen to music.  :grin:

It's the thing Leavers can't seem to get their heads around, at least the ones I've spoken to.

It's possibly wilful ignorance, but there's no excuse for that any more.

I also don't understand why so many politicians are leaving politics because of the threats they get through Social Media, surely it would be easier to just bin the Social Media accounts, or run them through a  mediation/moderation team, so that the worst is filtered and no direct (ad hominem)  threat is possible.

I suspect they're quitting because they don't want to be blamed for the mess they've made of teh whole thing.

Nigel having his gob shut with the promise of a knighthood? (If I had one, and he gets one, I'd be handing it back.)

..and I forgot to add, he's humped almost everyone who stumped up a deposit to stand in his 'party'.
