    Jordan’s coming home!

    I just hope if this is true that it is a low cost deal as whatever JR is, he is not a Premier League quality striker.

    Ah, pompous Purple, the man who knows what people mean better than they do themselves. Rather like socialists who know how to spend our money better than we do. Such a shame that they always run out of our money and end up facking up the economy. Never mind they can always blame austerity for trying to correct their profligacy.

    Women's football show the men up!

    The skills levels in the women's game is very high however I miss the physicality of the men's game. I agree it would be much better if players accepted the officials' decisions and the men's game could certainly learn something from both codes of rugby. Mind you, I don't think it is likely that referees will be called sir as is common in rugby at all levels.

    What a disingenuous pompous person you are. Should the EU refuse to extend beyond the end of October then we are compelled to leave unless we revoke Article 50. The verb compel means to force or oblige (someone) to do something. Nowhere have I said that the EU would be to blame and nowhere have I said that they compelled us to invoke Article 50. I have stated clearly any such result would be our fault for having negotiated a deal Parliament won't accept. Perhaps you should cease to provoke an argument through your perverse interpretation of what I have written.

    What I think is what I wrote not what you want me to think. As I posted the EU could force us out by refusing any further extension. That doesn't mean they are doing so to punish us but rather that they have their own agenda of issues to move on with and need to have the Brexit dilemma resolved. I am sure they would rather we remain but we cannot seem to find an agreement to close out Brexit. Should any request for an extension be refused it will be our fault and not theirs.

    I have not claimed it is the fault of the EU. I wouldn't blame them for refusing any further extension. It is clear our MPs cannot agree on how to close out Brexit and the EU has other issues to resolve themselves. They are not going to undermine their key operating principles for our benefit and why should they?

    Parliament is not sovereign, it has to enact EU directives whether it likes them or not and is subject to the rulings of the ECJ. More smoke screen posting from Billy Bullsh1t.

    Not if the PM leads a pro-Brexit party with a majority in the house to force it through. Hence why the next GE is key to resolving the issue one way or another.

    Personally, I hope Michael Gove becomes the next Tory leader as I feel he has the clarity of thought and attention for detail the Brexit mess now requires. I hope Boris doesn't become the new leader but if he makes the last two he almost certainly will. Whoever wins the leadership will face the same problem. Parliament won't pass the WA and the EU insist they won't renegotiate it. In this case there would be no point in extending the current deadline of Halloween but this would mean leaving with no deal. Parliament won't accept no deal but cannot stop the EU forcing us out. This leaves their only option to vote to revoke Article 50 before the deadline is reached. In turn the PM's only choice, to avoid Bercow et al from usurping the role of the executive in setting the parliamentary agenda for daily business, is to request the Queen to prorogue Parliament. Bercow cannot stop her from doing so although I'm sure she would take advice from constitution experts about such an action. Revoking article 50 would not resolve the issue either as the PM at some point in the future could action it again and we can go through it all again. I suspect that the next GE will settle it as the parties can stand on leave or remain manifestos. The leave manifesto would need to be clear that leaving with no deal will happen if the EU won't negotiate and thereby give the electorate a clear choice to vote leave or remain. I doubt if many Tory remain MPs will be selected by their local associations as candidates at the next GE so a majority Tory government could then get a renogiated WA or no deal through the house.

    Blimey John, you'll have the PC brigade after you if you're not careful.

    BTW, Norway isn’t in the EU. It’s in the EEA.

    These remoaners are desperate as they see their dreams of no Brexit disappearing brefore their eyes. Bloody marvelous, you pathetic tw@ts I post this en route to Flam in Norway. Had a very good lunch today with Mrs Crafty at the fish market in Bergan today. A smoked fish platter and a seafood platter and 0.4 l beer for £82- good value for Norway. Of course, being a racist little Englander according to the bigots llke Billsh1te and T I can only apologise for leaving the county to enjoy the beauty and epicurean delights of one of our European neighbours. On the other hand, FOYSC.

    Exactly, the judge makes no judgement on the veracity of the allegations. I don’t see the Crown Court upholding the charge on the basis that politicians have made exaggerated claims since time began. Goodness me, Blair claimed Saddam had weapons of mass destruction to excuse our actions in Iraq. Is he to be charged also? This is a vexatious action by remoaners who should be charged for wasting the court’s time.
