    I know in my local Hospital many of the Nurses could do with skipping a few meals.

    Look, its the Middle East, its full of lunatics (Religious or not) let them get on with it. I am a pleb, living on an island, off the North of Europe in the Atlantic. I don't give a fuck, in fact, the sooner they kill each other the better. In WW1 my grandmother (now dead) lost all six of her brothers fighting for the twats who ran the country at the time. The record is well and truly broken, non of the electorate (other than some recent immigrants) is interested anymore.

    the So-Called BBC in typical sour grapes mode explains that he lost Budapest and the youth vote. They helpfully add The result spells trouble ahead for civil society groups which campaign for human rights and against corruption, and for critical media. Because our country isn’t riddled with corrupt practices and our media are seekers of the truth

    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-04-08/latest-humiliation-brussles-viktor-orban-wins-hungary-elections-landslide-victory In the latest embarrassment for Europe's establishment, the ostracized - by Brussels - Hungarian leader Viktor Orbán, who has waged a relentless vendetta against George Soros in the past year, just won a landslide victory in Hunary's parliamentary elections. Orban’s ruling Fidesz party has won a sweeping, landslide victory according to preliminary results with 69% of the votes counted. Fidesz with 49.5% of party-list votes, matching most pre-election opinion polls Formerly far-right Jobbik second with 20% of list votes, Socialists at 11.9% LMP and DK parties also poised to clear parliamentary threshold based on partial count In other words, Orbán's Fidesz party has secured an absolute majority, and may even reach as much as a two-thirds majority of 133 seats, enough to pursue a constitutional amendment, making life for George Soros in Hungary even more unbearable.'

    Apparently Hungray's media has been accused of silencing opposition voices. So just like the So-Called BBC and the MSM in the U.K then.

    In the main the youth vote in most European countries is going to lean left,it really means nothing,in my youth I was a member of the Labour party and now I absolutely despise them as an adult. You soon grow out of it when you start paying taxes unless you are in a job that is paid for by the taxpayer.

    starving nurses

    Someone talks to someone that had talked to someone... It's hardly the best source of information... In other news I talked to someone who talked to someone that is a staff nurse and they had bought a new BMW. A NEW BMW.

    Town High Streets

    I had a friend with four kids, and she used to say, “When you have the first you wrap them in cotton wool and worry over them endlessly. By the time you get to the third, you’ll let them play with razor blades as long as they promise to do it quietly.”

    Town High Streets

    Indeed. There are two things I say to prospective parents: one is you have no idea the level of chronic sleep deprivation you are letting yourself in for. But the other more nuanced, and comes down to this. Such as when discussing with my younger brother about him and his wife’s spare bedrooms that would have to become nurseries if he had kids, and him whining about where would they put all their hobby stuff, and me pointing out that wouldn’t be a problem, because they wouldn’t have time for any of that stuff for about two decades post partum.

    Odds on war with Russia?

    Geography means Britain and Russia struggle to find a place to fight as we share no borders. One is a maritime nation living on an island in the Atlantic while the other is essentially a land based power in Eurasia. You only have to look at the logistical difficulties involved in the Crimean war to see that it is likely to be a struggle. Therefore war is only likely via proxy or if we decide to send British troops to die alongside other Europeans in the snows before Moscow or on the Volga. The former set up is what happened in the novel 1984. Endless distant wars fought over the horizon whose main purpose was to justify the suppression of the native population. The target of the war drums with Russia is not Putin it is you and me.

    Headlines in the papers are a complete embarrasment this morning how they trumpet the government line. I mean, what independant verification os there of what is supposedly going on, I wouldn't be surprised if ISIS or whoever were gassing their own kids for propaganda purposes. No wonder hardly anybody actually buys newspapers anymore.

    what a surprise that the polling companies and the legacy media try to cling onto delusions that they know best .... seems the people think differently. This is going to be VERY interesting ...

    Rip Off Shite Britain

    Cheap sheds are intrinsically shite, no getting around that. Even the good (expensive) ones are not actually good, just not quite an insult to the death of a tree. The only way to have good is to build one yourself or have someone do it for you but that is too spendy for most people. I'm surprised at you choosing a joiner to assemble a shed and even more surprised that they screwed it up. What did they do? Oddly enough, one of the things I'm doing this week is assembling a large shed for someone. It's a shitty cheap one and I'm expecting it to be a wobbly pain in the arse.

    New political party

    You lot want power in your hands, you need the Swiss system or something close to it. These would be the sole aims of my fantasy UK party had I bought a few grands worth of Bitcoin a few years back, then the party would be disbanded after implementation :- 1. Bin the British plutocracy and the Royals and the Lords, Earls, Dukes and all of that bollocks. Confiscate no property but kill the system that supports it stone dead. Establish the electoral system that the Swiss have. Cantons with real local power, regular referendums, the lot. (80% of my tax goes to Geneva not Berne in case you doubt the canton's power) Control extremely carefully with heavy judicial penalties the flow of money into politics, it should all be state-funded. 2. Create a full constitution for the UK enshrining that electoral system, with a clause expressly permitting the people to engage in civil disobedience and armed struggle against any government who ignores the result of a popular referendum or attempts to change the electoral system without an 80% majority. 3. Create a citizen's army charged with defence (only) of the nation and the constitution including against internal threats. Re-establish military service to maintain this. 4. As part of the constitutional changes, make all forms of rentierism unprofitable via taxation, especially homes, and investment in innovation and business (UK only) the best form of storing wealth. Over time(doubtless after a few immature popular referendums for stupid things), this would make Britain great again and keep the elite in their place. They'd still wield enormous power, but not unchecked as now. People like Blair would have to emigrate or adapt.

    Yes I've been wondering whether the recent demonization of Russia has been a prelude to a false flag nerve gas event so we're all primed to respond to a "Russia has done it again we must respond immediately" narrative.
