    The Brexit Thread

    Precisely. We've seen so much stripped from public ownership to enrich a few, whilst simpletons have convinced themselves the nonsense they have been fed justifies this theft.

    The Brexit Thread

    " No analysis of the likely economic damage from Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal will be carried out, the government has admitted. Ministers have dropped plans to publish a Treasury assessment, amid estimates of a hit to the UK economy of anything between £70bn and £130bn, leaving people thousands of pounds worse off. The stance was attacked as “a dereliction of duty” by Julie Ward, a Labour MEP, who uncovered it after submitting a freedom of information request. “The government doesn't even know, or don't even seem to care, what their new Brexit deal will mean for the economy, business and families across the country,” she said." So support something the Tories don't want you to know how much it will cost you. Support a prospective PM who has had his questionable dealings with some floozy delayed until after the election so you won't know what level of fraud was committed. Likewise delay a report that outlays the suggested 'dodgy' money propping up certain Tories...... so you won't know until after the election. Nothing to hide, is there ?

    oh dear, you cannot help yourself from misrepresenting posts - or lying as I would have it (it's what gives you way so easily) no one has claimed that broadband is as vital as water or power - that is just you making up stuff again what was said was " Broadband is at this point a utility like water and power", nothing about vital and to ensure the whole country has access then a comprehensive approach is necessary, one that I have no doubt will allow for extra spend as with private healthcare and schooling but the base level will be there and how that is arrived at, I don't doubt, will be a mixture of suppliers, but having the one commissioning body investing for the future, not divesting for the present day gain of a few

    Oh dear RTB is lying yet again. Having stated that the 2017 GE would be a hung Parliament, that the meaningful vote would be used, that the extension would be granted (twice), that the UK would not leave in both March and October and much more....... I can hardly be wrong on what has already been proven correct Now why not use another of your 'names' to tell us about that campsite motion, how you were certain that a deal would be agreed before March 29th ? or better still come back and wobble your gob when you have actually got something right .... like the single carriageway A11 anyway I must be off, meanwhile why not try and come up with some plausible story that explains how you were able to travel from Aylsham to Standsted without using the A11 - and remember some of us will be trying to work so do try to keep the lies down, there's a good crank

    To instale and reap the benefots of full fibre broadband requires it to be in every home/business/school etc However you would be up against strong resistance were you to insist that everyone one had to pay for it hence it will be freely available...... initially is my thought. Those who have an idea of Norfolk history will know that a huge number of roads were 'metalled' in the 1930's. A project that would not have happened if the same Tory mentality was prevalent then. One that would have had only those who wanted tarmac roads from their village to the next should pay while those who didn't could either use the fields or not travel at all. It would have given a county with bits of tarmac'ed roads stretching miles or yards with virtually nothing joined up. What this proposal has shown is how much Tory/brexiteer voting is driven by pig ignorant dogma. Within less than an hour of it being announced all manner of ill informed sh ite was being regurgitated from bigots who probably previously thought 'full fibre' was some kind of carpet material - but were sill happy to repost stuff they clearly didn't understand ....because ithe idea came from Labour.

    That is based on the law of averages ie having been wrong every other time you must be right this time ps remember when yu told us that there would not be an election in 2019, or the Tories would secure a 70-100 seat majority in the 2017 election ?

    And that is an accurate synopsis. With an eye on keeping dividends at a high level so as to retain their bonuses BT have failed, as have the railways and utilities. However I would doubt that Labour intend to fully nationalise Openreach and this is merely a shot across their bows. Focus on your customers not your shareholders. But it is quite noticable that the Tories have been caught flat footed on this, as they have let this concern drift (ever downward) and can now only react with outdated guff about it being 'communism'. Another case of a choice of whether we embrace the futue or cling to the past.
