    I'm sick of the presenter constantly cutting them both short. It's like Bercow with a vagina. Organize a longer debate FFS and tell the presenter to butt out.
    Or get a man to do it. There's far too many women in politics already. It's part of why we are in this mess to begin with.

    Amazing how little scrutiny Boris' Brexit agreement is getting? The how and the what Leaving means; the why was asked in 2016. Reminds me of the immigration debate we were never allowed to have while the country was overrun and changed before our eyes.

    ‚ÄúA democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage.‚ÄĚ

    I dont know it. I am scratching my head a tad why hes taking on Caroline Flint who has voted for, and spoken for, Brexit resulting in much disquiet from her own party.
    Yet he gives scrotes like my MP and Djangoly for instance a free pass. Very odd. Who knows where the next crop of Letwins Grieves Hammonds and Gaukes are lurking. There is a still massive pro remain movement at large in the Tory party. He should have been MUCH more selective in his approach. That was in his gift to do so. So i think he was made an overwhlemingly good offer to, at a stroke, disregard proper democratic politicians like La Flint and go balls deep in supporting the tories across the board.
    I think Farage was given to believe a deal would be done. Maybe the 40 seats as was reported at one time.
    But somewhere in that deal lay some sort of personal bauble booby trap for Nigel. The deal was then pulled after he made his announcement to stand down the 300. But he then couldnt accuse the Tories of such cos he had a good drink coming out of it.
    I think hes been hoodwinked at the very least. Been very naive.
    Also he goes on about how he pulled the candidates because of how Boris had given him assurances that he would harden his deal to a Canada +++ type of arrangement.
    Yet i never saw this written about or commented on anywhere.
    Urdu probably.

    The reality is that that someone working today should not be paying tax for Mrs Duffy pension.
    The LA should have been fully funded. They are not.
    A large chunk of ctax goes to pay LA pensions.
    LA must be forced into bankruptcy or made to slash pension payouts.

    AND having to pay council tax, which has increased way ahead of inflation, to pay for the unfunded pensions, for a bunch of people who spend their life providing services to jobless immigrants, paying translators to help migrants access public services etcetc etc.

    This has been going on for years. On a recent trip to a garage, sorry service centre, I asked the receptionist, sorry customer champion, where I should go to collect my car. She politely informed me I should go and wait in the waiting area, sorry customer sales lounge,  and a customer service rep, sorry product evangelist, would talk me through the problems that had been found. But it turned out that the customer service rep, sorry product evangelist, was actually just reading off the screen what the mechanic, sorry Approved Used vehicle technician, had written down. I was about to ask her why I couldn't just speak directly to the mechanic, sorry Approved Used vehicle technician; but I quickly got my answer once the customer service rep, sorry product evangelist, gave me the fucking invoice!
    (It's all just to charge you more)

    It’s the old adage about the difference between managers and leaders.
    Organisations with leaders tend to be led from the top down and are usually successful and interesting places to work.
    Organisations with managers tend to be led from the bottom up,  are often inefficient, ineffective and moral destroying places to work.

    I have a suspicion that it is the MBA 'cargo cult'.
    There's all the talk of management idols and techniques and stuff; the approach appears to be to copy all of the 'visible' characteristics of successful management -- words, champions, structures, book-learnt leaders, etc -- but to not actually get the bit about successful management where there's got to actually be management that understands the business, actually works and is ultimately successful.  Over and over again they fail, not understanding why their state of the art structures don't seem to work, and usually end up blaming the floor-staff for being crap or not following directions -- when all along they're doing the equivalent of making a perfect facsimile of a short wave radio out of bamboo and string, and not understanding why the new gods don't bring them their ambrosia.

    Anyone heard of this?
    Britain's Conservative Party government has launched an urgent investigation into liberal billionaire George Soros, over claims the globalist financier funneled millions into a campaign to block Brexit and take down British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

    They will be working on the number of people that currently visit the dentist. I would guess many can't afford to. 
    Make it free and watch the demand explode.
    I doubt we have enough dentists to cope.

    Tell them you're defintely voting Labour as you hate Jews as well. Then tell them you'll be ready for the final solution as you tap your nose and give them a wink. Close the door and get on with your day.

    What the papers say 11.30pm BBC news channel.
    Absolute outrage by the two reviewers that conservative candidates are being made to sign to agree to support Boris deal.
    Outrage as it is mps then ignoring wishes of constitutents.
    Complete hypocrisy as MPs have blatantly ignored their constituents already.
     
    Free dentistry policy will cost 450million.

    1. Nothing is free. Governments do not have any money at all, only a tax base.
    2 The internet corporates will just put prices up to pay the tax
    3 So, we all end up paying for Labour's wet dream.

    +1 for Middle Eastern food. Crazy religious fuckers on the whole but they do make some very good food. For example:
    1. Baba Ganoush - umami maximalism. Available Waitrose £1.50 - £2 a tub.

     
    2. Za'atar herbs (basically thyme and salt and few other things - sprinkle it on chicken then cook). Available Amazon about £5 for 250g though prices vary substantially.

    Invasion of the Country Snatchers. They have been decades in taking over the public sector. They speak a language I do not understand. They think in ways that I cannot comprehend and which seem totally illogical to me. After taking over the schools, unis, councils and media they progressed to Parliament.
    The sad reality is that they look on ordinary Brits as if we are the aliens because we do not speak the language, we are not on board with the causes and the ideology. They seem barking to us but we all look like bigots to them.
