    Brexit Betrayal thread

    Isn't that about 52% to 48%? Surely some were lied to, and others were too thick to understand. I think we can safely ignore that result and go for a second one when people are better informed.

    The persistence of the GJ is impressive. My opinion of the indigenous French has gone up a good deal.

    Brexit Betrayal thread

    After reading loads of debate online, so many opinions, politicians talking nonsense and the rest of it - I'm realising one of the main aspects of this entire thing is really starting to fuck me off. EU citizens have come here and worked and paid taxes so we should help them and welcome them post Brexit because they deserve it..... Fuck right off. They didn't come here for some altruistic reason. They didn't come here for the weather. They didn't come here for the culture. They came here for the MONEY. I have no problem with that. It's completely reasonable. However it should not mean you think the country you went to for money owes you anything. Things change. Rules change. And if that means you have to change your plans then so be it. That's what a grown up rationale person would think. Unfortunately half the population these days appear to be nothing more than snivelling "I want my dummy mummy !!" Toddlers. It's pathetic. And if they can't live and work here anymore what are they going to do ? Well they can return to the country they came from - or due to this apparently wonderful thing known as EU freedom of movement - can jump on a plane and relocate to any one of the other 26 countries where they can live and work no questions asked. What's with all the faux "Poor wee EU nationals in the UK" sympathy around. It's nauseating. Anyway today's rant over.

    Why is there even talk of an extension? We were told in the lead up to the referendum that “leave means leave”. We were told the consequences of leaving (the sky would fall in). We were then told that triggering article 50 was a one way thing. There would be no going back. Seems we have been lied to yet again

    Erm...six years!? For letting a little girl live in filth and shite and then allowing her to starve to death? Six fucking years!? I'd get much longer if I took a shovel to one of those wastes of skin and piss and it'd be justified too. Unbelievable.

    I don’t want an Asian doctor

    It's idiotic to discriminate on grounds of race of your doctor. The doctor that helped with my third child was a burmese guy who's english wasn't perfect, but his knowledge of pregnancy and childbirth was, frankly, extraordinary. Now, I had no worries about his qualifications because I know in Hong Kong the authorities check everyone qualifications to a very high standard and there is lots of open public reviews of different medical specialists. They also prosecute and punish bad eggs https://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/law-and-crime/article/2178686/doctor-who-groped-patients-breasts-after-she-complained https://www.straitstimes.com/asia/east-asia/doctor-jailed-over-death-at-hong-kong-beauty-clinic In the UK, there is a problem with unqualified doctors from shithole countries placing patients at risk, but that is not a RACIAL issue, that is an administrative failure issue.

    Im guessing onesie and sarah will be busy today ... Women's March: 30 countries set to take part in third global protest Women to march against violence and austerity with UK rally likely to have anti-Brexit tone https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/jan/18/womens-march-30-countries-set-to-take-part-in-third-global-protest Women in more than 30 countries around the world are expected to gather on Saturday as part of the global Women’s March, to protest against violence against women and the impact of policies of austerity. In London thousands are expected to gather outside Portland Place in central London at 12.30pm and march to Trafalgar Square by 1.30pm, ending in a two-hour rally. Saturday marks the third anniversary of the first Women’s March in 2017, when as many as 6 million people around the world gathered in protest at the election of Donald Trump as president of the United States. Last year thousands gathered in central London for the Time’s Up rally, in honour of the campaign against sexual harassment and honouring the #MeToo movement. While the global theme of the 2019 Women’s Wave is ending violence against women and girls, the theme of the London march has been named “bread and roses”, in honour of the Polish-born American suffragette and workers’ rights campaigner Rose Schneiderman and reflects marchers’ “hunger to thrive and not just survive on bread”, said organisers. After the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire of 1911 where 146 mainly female garment-industry workers died, Schneiderman declared: “The worker must have bread, but she must have roses, too.” Eh? Why stop at Trump and austerity? Theres's spiders, parallel parking, tight bottle tops, not being able to pee standing up, size 10 being to osmall in certain shops etc etc etc. Som, the focus is on a woman for an obscure industrial accident over 100 years ago, in NY FFS. How about Piper Alpha? Weve just passed the 30th anniversary. 167 blokes died on that. All because they had to work and pay tax so mainly women can sit around on benefits and get 70% of the health care provision. Instead of protesting about austerity, why not protest for a lower tax take, so people cna keep more of their earned money rather than the state wasting it? I cant see why wimmin would object to that - after taxation is theft of peoples money and time.

    Here we go again. You will blame anything and everything for you being single. If only I had a better chin, teeth, abs, whatever. Just fucking stop it. You are destroying yourself. There are thousands of perfectly decent women in Belfast looking for a guy just like you. It is just that you don't see them, or aren't in the places that they will be. The fat, entitled, look at me burds will be in the bars, clubs and coffee shops. Your brain is your problem. You overthink everything. I can guarantee that if you had a couple of girlfriends you would have a queue of a dozen more. What have you actually done about it since this thread started? Tennis club? Badminton club? Book club? Sailing club? Sounds harsh? It is meant to. I was you once.

    Or can get the bus or train. I don't get a car parking space anyway as they're limited and so go to people who use their car for work during the day. Which is fair enough. However some of the poorest paid jobs down here, such as working in a meat processing factory, pay minimum wage, have shift work, and are in rural locations. Without a car you can't get to work; cycling would be a form of constructive suicide. These are the people who can barely afford to run a car in the first place but have no choice; these are the people who the tax will clobber. Yet again it's the poor worker having money ripped from them to give to the idie to win votes.

    The Chinese in the UK never ask for any special treatment, bother anyone or bleat about how much racism they encounter. And crucially usually any Chinese person born and educated in the UK would have no qualms in marrying a native Brit unlike some other diverse cultures we have imported.

    I'm waiting for the advert that shows a man sitting on the sofa with his feet up eating chocolates while the woman is out working. You know, because he's worth it.

    He is completely wrong of course. The worst PM in his lifetime was Gordon Brown (including his time as war criminal Bliar's Chancellor). Treason May is just incredibly ineffective. Gordo was actively destructive and his reforms have proven to be intractable; namely Tax Credits and the client state; weaponised mass immigration and the resultant destruction of labour power; the destruction of pensions and resultant housing bubble; the commodification of further education leading to a generational debt trap. Compared to that nation-vandal May is just a petty time-waster.

    Vince Cable: "This is the beginning of the end of Brexit!" Fuck off you traitor. Just fuck off. The problem is not the people, it is parliament. They have been out of touch so long, they hold voters in such contempt, they need to be removed from power. But how?

    Anecdotal but my 19 year old thinks over 80% of his friends want Brexit. The 16 year old says nearer 90% of his cohort. The interesting thing is that they are not afraid to admit it in public. Unlike us 50 year olds that would never post anything pro Brexit on Facebook because of the shitstorm we would get in return.

    Things have changed considerably in the past 30 months since the vote. I really think that if TPTSB don't try to fix the vote*, then Leave would get between 55 to 60% this time. Since Brexit: Trump has been great The EU and Merkel had suffered their Stalingrad in the 2015 invasion but the EU was still largely unified apart from Hungary. Now we have Poland, Italy plus a lot of smaller Central European nations in opposition to the EU, and France in open revolt. At the time of the vote, most people thought that maybe the government were a bit incompetent but they were working in the interest of the country. That myth has now been destroyed. The legacy media fake news has lost all credibility with all but the brainwashed. * They will try and fix the vote.
