Distasteful? We'd have said worse than that if they were being driven round Marseilles or Moscow or Dallas, in fact anywhere.

That's NOT going to discourage me from having opinions about Brexit and expressing them. Lord I've been insulted a hundred times worse by someone else previously on this forum for opposing what's happening and not expressing warm congratulating to both May and Trump. (True.)

Todays instalment is the PM blowing the racist dog whistle as a desperate attempt to get support for her agreement. As I've said before, it was the racists wot made all the difference in 2016 and it's a fair bet it will work again. Blow economics, too complicated, let's "take control of our immigration policy", that's what REALLY matters to the crucial portion of the swing voters.


For goodness sake Nigel, don't take everything personally, and come out and talk to me as Moss. Sick of this feud you have wrapped around yourself, will it go on forever? This I know, if I want to say something, I shall say it and not be intimidated from now on.

Peace.

Moss, I WAS at peace until you said what you said.

I didn't respond to your thread as I didn't want to have a direct confrontation.

I did feel justified in making my feelings clear on this one that anyone has a perfect right to be obsessed with anything. I'm mad about butterflies and moths personally despite them being relatively inconsequential.

To paraphrase Oscar, I take very little personally except personal attacks. And not often even then. I like rhinos because I have a similar hide.

Peace is restored.

A nation that demands a red, white and blue brexit apparently! The utter nonsense I've heard over the past three years has been astonishing. People are literally trying to rewrite history!

Theresa May Verified account @theresa_may

This isn’t about party politics, this is about what matters for this country, it is about what is in the national interest, that’s what I’m determined to deliver. A deal that’s good for the people of this country.

This arsegaping clusterfuck only popped into existence as a result of your predecessor’s attempts to quell the petty ideological infighting between the various shades of bastard in your party, you disingenuous shitflake.

And end to Freedom of Movement
Nov 21, 2018, 09:53
I realise there's a lot of UK folks have a deep-rooted problem with immigration (something Brexit really threw into sharp-relief).

But even those of you for whom that's the case, you must admit that Theresa May's constant (and clearly triumphalist) bragging about how she is "finally ending Freedom of Movement" and preventing EU citizens "jumping the queue" is just plain horrible.

I'm trying to imagine the reaction of the British media (and indeed the 52%) if Donald Tusk and Claude Juncker were to hold regular press-conferences in which, grinning, they delightedly assured the people of Europe than we can now relax having ended Freedom of Movement for the British on our continent. Imagine them sneering at British "queue-jumpers" retired in Spain (or just working hard in Germany).

The UK would *rightly* be appalled at that kind of attitude.

All that matters to those people are those countries where britain exploited other nations in the name of 'Empire' are 'british' so allowed to be a bit 'racist'

What we share with our European neighbours means little, because the uk govt failed to make them british

In need of levity, this made me laugh several times (I particularly enjoyed the war with Spain bit):

We're fucked.

May has essentially given away seniority over Gibraltar to get her deal through, even knowing full well that the people's majority don't support it. Now online begging people to back it, suffice to say there's not been much support.

Only hope Parliament vote it down and the court case find Banks guilty, as could render the whole thing void
