    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.

    " 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.

    Not a good day to be a bigot. Last night' affrontary, whereby one of our betters was questioned by a commoner was bad enough - but today it got even worse. "Farage accuses Tories of "corruption" while saying claims of Brexit job offers and peerages are "fact" The Brexit Party leader has told BBC Radio 5 Live that claims his party's candidates had been offered negotiating roles and peerages in return for them standing aside for Conservatives in the general election are "fact". "Ann Widdecombe made it perfectly clear she received two phone calls, from a senior official in number 10, offering her a job on the negotiating team if she stood down as an election candidate. Fact," said Mr Farage. "Fact number two, Sir Eddie Lister, rang up our candidate for Peterborough offering him a job in higher education if he stood down as a candidate. "They’re the things that are already out in the open and what I have said that is there was actually a package put together, in which eight senior figures of the Brexit party would go to the house of Lords and be part of the negotiating team ... in order for us to stand down, and I was shown the list that we'd be be given from Number 10. "It’s corruption. It’s corruption." The police are investigating allegations of electoral fraud in relation to the claims." Things have hit rock bottom when even Farage is accusing you of corruption

    The pension liability is what is the likely cost due should all eventualities happen ie how much will have to be paid out.....as say with a player's add ons. The deficit is the amount short of that sum in it's fund ie City have £10m but if all the add ons happen we will have to pay out £13m so there is a projected deficit of £3m Any transfer of BT pensioners would cause a pro rata transfer of pension funds; However what I did notice happened very quickly was that the same ill informed nonsense was being put out on many varied 'platforms' which suggests the intent was not to refute the Labour statement but to re-assure it's faithful that it was still ok to be a Tory. I doubt any had a clue what they were posting, but they had something to cling to. What is behind Labours idea, perhaps this rebuttal of the guff about 'competition' ........"According to research by Cable, a price comparison site, Italy has Europe’s cheapest broadband, with the UK fifth, behind France and Germany. The UK scores particularly poorly on a cost-per-megabit basis, ranking 21st out of 29 countries. " As with the 'on the cheap' failing 'free' schools, the cuts to the emergency services, and the NHS it is time to reverse this lunacy to get the country back on it's feet and start investing...not see huge sums paid out in dividends to non UK holdings. A simple choice ....invest in the UK or divest the UK of it's assets

    Why will nobody be surprised at this ? "The Brexit Party has selected a candidate to vie for the approval of voters in Tynemouth... who lives 9,000 miles away in Australia. Ed Punchard runs a documentary-making business in Fremantle, western Australia, but says he is ready to leave if he should be elected next month. He has lived in Australia for 30 years So many jokes to be made there ......................
  21. ................then why not post your thoughts on the Pinkun forum ? A place where you can meet likeminded souls and whine endlessly about how jolly awful it all is at Carrow Road. Perhaps the 'bee in your bonnet' is the club's supposed lack of spending, which is determined not by the money the club does have, but by a lack of 'hambition'. Or maybe it is a gripe that Delia, who apparenly owns all the club, is standing in the way of an 'hinvestor'.... Mr Wun Hung Lo or Sheikh en Vak (per chance) who are at this very moment waiting to hand over millions to deliver your expectations. Yes, it is all that simple (much like you), if only they could see it that way. Remember, you are never too stupid to post your whines about how unfair it all is, and how better it all would be if you were in charge.

    Talking of which what has happened to the 'stick insect', Rees-Mogg ? Has he been hidden away after his clueless guff about the Grenfell fire ? It's bad enough Johnson turning the Glastonbury bake off into the Boris run off, without Sajid Javid avoiding debating in public Labour's spending plans. Which, if are as bad as claimed, should be an open goal. Yet like the other two he shys away. Just as with the Withdrawal deal when it was to be scrutinised. That 'something to hide' suspicion only grows greater when we learn that the two enquiries into Johnson's dodgy financial goings on with his previous floozy, and the even dodgier Russian money, funding the Tory party have both being 'delayed'. The stench of corruption reeks to high heaven.
