Fucking idiot. You don’t give in and do what they want, you explain why they’re wrong FFS.


#2631

The EU has already curbed the influx by spending money abroad that’s why you don’t see a million people knocking on the bloody borders this year. Fuck off Hillary!


#2632

Desperate measures. UKIP are destined for oblivion and I doubt this gobby cunt can turn it round.

Seems an odd move; really does stop them using the “we’re not racists we just don’t like foreigners” fine line that they normally try and walk. Basically just outing themselves completely. Guessing actually it won’t make much difference, the average 'kipper probably things Robinson is a top chap etc.

So Poroshenko (approval rating 8%) proposes Martial Law for Ukraine.

Well, that might help him avoid having to hold a somewhat awkward election in March.


#2635

As high as that?

Please post that on pfm, they’d have a cranial meltdown trying to decide whether to hate or like that.

Perhaps Gibbon was closer to the point on appetite for such tale telling, except he didn’t foresee chasing the ratings. Or Trumpnami.

A state of skepticism and suspense may amuse a few inquisitive minds. But the practice of superstition is so congenial to the multitude that, if they are forcibly awakened, they will regret the loss of their pleasing vision. Their love of the marvellous and supernatural, their curiosity with regard to future events, and their strong propensity to extend their hopes and fears beyond the limits of the visible world, were the principal causes which favoured the establishment of Polytheism. So urgent on the vulgar is the necessity of believing, that the fall of any system of mythology will most probably be succeeded by the introduction of some other mode of superstition.

The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire by Edward Gibbon. Volume 2, Chapter 15 (1781).

More succinctly, ‘Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.’

I’m watching PMQ at the moment. How the fuck does Corbyn manage to make Maybot look good, he’s a bloody disgrace. Corbyn, Abbot and Watson out, and raise Screaming Lord Sutch from the dead or vote Stronzetto.


#2644

I turned it off. Thank feck the debate on Sunday has been binned. Listening to May vs Corbyn is unedifying at the best of times.

“MP’s posing for photos at food banks is not a good look” (Referring to Dominic Raab’s comments) was a pretty damning line.

The people of Northern Ireland (majority voted remain there) actually had the chance of a very amenable situation. Unfortunately they are represented, for the most part in the HoC, by a bunch of idiots. With different representation from NI, May’s deal might have stood more of a chance of getting through. Only a slim chance though. The ERG along with the opposition parties would likely still have voted it down.

The fucking clown

It’s days like this when what you really need is the holy and righteous indignation of, say …

Because of course we haven’t seen enough recently of May dissembling over Brexit while getting away with all manner of other shit.

The pathectic guy who is shadow trade secretary was on the politics show on BBC2 and was asked why Corbyn had not gone for the jugular, and basically admitted it was a pre-planned tactic as Labour want to stay out of the Brexit stuff and hope the Tory’s destroy themselves from within.

And of course a Labour has no real plan or policy of it’s own so they don’t want that being thrown back at them.:thinking:
