  1. After all the catastrophic decision making plaguing every moment of Boris's reign, he decided it was time to take his key cabinet ministers on a team-building away-day event:
  2. What a vile bunch the Tories are: https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/tory-candidate-suspended-by-party-over-comments-about-fat-food-bank-users/ar-BB1cMgUQ?ocid=msedgntp
  3. Great news: https://www.msn.com/en-gb/cars/news/people-celebrate-as-moving-trucks-for-trump-are-spotted-outside-of-the-white-house/ar-BB1cMgWj?ocid=msedgntp People celebrate as moving trucks for Trump are spotted outside of the White House s soon to be followed by one of these:
  4. Agree with that. But also the extra important element to his game that he has over Xavi is his speed. He is genuinely very fast, and a speedy full-back is really important to getting the best out of our style of play. Would be happy to have both in the squad.
  5. More incredible incompetence at the Home Office: https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/150-000-arrest-records-wiped-from-police-databases-in-major-blunder/ar-BB1cLueT?ocid=msedgntp
  6. Good to see that statement from Pence but he does seem to forget to include the final sentence where he explains who "the Great people of this Nation" and the "Capitol" need protecting from. Not muslims, nor Mexicans, nor illegal immigrants; but die-hard, red-white-and-blue Trump supporters. That seething, disgusting malange of racist, white supremicist, QAnon conspiracy hate merchants, that he and Trump and the majority of the Republican Party have enabled and encouraged from the beginning of this most egregious presidency.
  7. Oh dear! Trump junior's comments come back to haunt him: https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/trump-jr-mocked-as-tweet-about-deplorable-impeachment-comes-back-to-haunt-him-again/ar-BB1cKtv2?ocid=msedgntp Back in 2016 – a time that feels like many centuries ago – Hillary Clinton referred to Trump supporters as a “basket of deplorables” which caused a lot of a commotion. Firing back at the time, the now-president’s son Donald Trump Jr wrote in a tweet in September of 2016, “Dear Clintons, You know what's deplorable? Being Impeached!!!”. I wonder what beats "deplorable" as an adjective for describing a double impeachment???
  8. To settle one dispute, I took part in the Novavax vaccine trial at the Quadram Institue (N and N) precisely because they advertised for older people (over 50 and up to 84 years) to volunteer.
  9. https://english.alaraby.co.uk/english/news/2021/1/13/israel-raids-on-syria-followed-us-intel-pompeo-mossad-meeting Israeli airstrikes on arms depots and military positions in eastern Syria which killed dozens of pro-Syrian regime fighters were carried out using intelligence provided by Washington, a senior US intelligence official with knowledge of the attack told AP.The attack was also discussed by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Israel spy chief Yossi Cohen during a meeting in Washington DC, the official claimed.
  10. You have to laugh. Daily Mail columnist inadvertently makes a great case for belonging to the single market: https://www.thelondoneconomic.com/news/daily-mail-slams-petty-eu-for-letting-lorries-sweep-into-switzerland-forgetting-it-is-in-single-market-and-schengen/14/01/ Daily Mail slams “petty EU” for letting lorries “sweep into Switzerland” – forgetting it is in single market and Schengen
  11. And still we await a Brexiteer to point out a single actual substantive gain.
  12. Seems the "oven-ready" deal didn't include any recipes for fish.
  13. The New flag to fly over Trump Towers has just been revealed:
  14. So the US has deployed more troops to the Capitol to defend itself from Trump supporting terrorists, than it has deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq (combined) to defend itself against foreign terrorists. Remember 2016 when Trump sought to ban muslims from flying in to the US to "prevent" potential terrorist attacks on the US; who would have thought that 1 term of Trump's presidency would require banning internal flights by Trump's home-grown terrorist supporters to prevent a real threat of terrorist attacks. What a fine legacy Mr Trump! hope you enjoy a long retirement sporting your orange jump-suit.
  15. I see what's happened; you've mistaken the one brain cell pinging around the vast empty cavern within your cranium as an echo chamber. Easy mistake for someone like you to make.
  16. Some of the Republican speeches are truly shocking in their blatant disregard for truth and democracy. And the sudden commitment to "unifying the country" of those rejecting impeachment is simply laughable. The truth is that there isn't a hope in hell of unifying the country by appeasing Trump and his fascist mob. They have to be made accountable for attacking the Capitol and the democratic principles of the US Constitution.
  17. So many videos like this are doing the rounds. Guess they wish they had listened to us "remoaners" now. Sadly a lot of people are going to lose their jobs and businesses. Rule Britannia!
  18. All this shows why it is so important that the Republican Party begins the process of detaching itself from reliance on support from the extreme right. It is clearly in the interest of the future democracy of America that they do so, but also quite obviously in the Party's own self-interest. It seems, at last, that MM and some of his bretheren have begun to realise this after the insurrection ofJan 6 (I think we should start calling it 1/6 to match that other assault on US democracy 9/11). The election showed that however popular Trump may be among such deplorables, they were strongly out-voted by those repulsed by such views. After 1/6 this repulsion will surely increase, and we are likely to see many of those on the fringes tempted by such views thinking twice before they take the path of sedition. The courts too will see quite a culling of the hardcore Trump fascists in the near future and that too should have a deterrent effect. The Republican Party should realise the experiment with Trump has proved a terrible failure, and that it is no mere coincidence that it has ended with an assault on the very foundations of US democracy and the articles of the Constitution. They are now likely to be out of power for two terms and would be well advised to begin immediately a process of difinitive detachment from the anti-democratic forces that Trump and his ilk have courted.
  19. Wow! If that turns out to be true they should find themselves on sedition conspiracy charge.
  20. Clearly Brexit has been catastrophic to many businesses and consumers in the short-term, but what about the long-term effects? Don't get your hopes up: https://theconversation.com/brexit-uk-pound-has-not-crashed-yet-but-heres-why-it-will-probably-suffer-in-years-to-come-152646

  22. I know! bloody disgraceful. And to think we allowed all those Polish pilots to sacrifice themselves in the RAF, only for their decendants to think they had a right to come over here, work hard, and contribute to the economy, bastar*ds!
  23. A bit too generous for this government I suspect. Or maybe the pics we have seen are the aftermath of having been ransacked by Mark Francois.
  24. Well at least Swindon maintains his 100% record for getting things wrong.
