    It's a thing. Like headbanging but using the floor.

    Nobody voted for a withdrawal agreement and then leave. We voted to leave and then negotiate the terms of our withdrawal.
    Big difference.

    Yep. At every stage they think they are winning but ordinary people are thinking... Wait... No... You gotta be joking... no way... You waht!
    Yay! We have managed to drag on the Brexit betrayal for another two weeks! Yes we have lost face across the whole of the world and have also lost 117 conservative politicians, but aren't we great! Strong... and... stable. Look at all the baubles we have brought back from the EU... erm... a slap in the face, for your troubles and a go fuck yourself! Aren't you lucky!
    You lucky, lucky voters you! Xx

    Erm...
    If I post a present to whoever then it's obviously from me.
    That's not how it works. You are given a present, you know what it is (once it's been opened) but you don't know who it's from.
    Sorry to be a stickler for the rules, but this is turning out like some sort of brexit.

    They are setting fire to their party to prop up May's turd of a deal that they are going to vote down anyway.

    There's no need for that! 
    She's not the person that a shadowy elite would put up for the job, any job. She's a disaster. This is a disaster. Her whole career has been a disaster, every interview has been a disaster, every political rally has been a disaster, every meet 'n' greet has been a disaster, every election has been a disaster, her cabinets have been a disaster, EU meetings a disaster, African dances a disaster, getting out of cars a disaster.
    She's a disaster.

    He even gave them shit chairs to sit in so they looked small, insignificant, hunched over and uncomfortable.

    Exactly. No-one this shit holds on to a position without significant backing.
    We have one party that shits itself that their EU gravy train funded by the tax payer is coming to a halt and the other waiting in the wings to give all your money to gimmegrants. Joy.

    Treason survived.
    Her only chance now is to get an alliance with labour remainers and save us from no deal. 
    Of course that will finish her in parliament. And there will be an election. But it wont matter to her as she clearly indicates shes not interested in anything other than BRINO and keeping us close to thd EU.
    So much for democracy.

    XswampyX reacted to SillyBilly in Starting your own business   
    I set up a first business after uni when I was shocked that nobody wanted to employ me as a 1st class hons Chemistry grad (brainwashed by the education system that I was special). It was a leaflet distribution business but also outsourced print and design of the marketing material too. Basically the lowest barrier entry to market business I could come up with. I "employed" my redundant dad at the time (cough cough) to deliver most of the stuff (lived at home still so was interesting) and I skimmed the cream off the top. If we were busy I'd have to go out delivering myself and could actually make some decent wonga in tightly packed areas (terraces were great). Bloody hard work walking 8 hours a day though that is for sure, never forgot that. Never been chunky but me and my dad both looked skeletal after a year or so. I did try to scale with a few bigger contracts (Ikea, Dom Pizza etc.) but the hassle of finding casual staff was a nightmare. They are casual 'cause no f**ker else will touch them. Then having to deal with the clients after Ahmed goes AWOL and leaflets in a skip. It was a lot of work for £20k net a year in my back pocket. I suspect I could of got that up if I pursued but I was offered £22k to do a grad job using my skills learned as a demonstration of my work ethic. Jumped at the chance. Dad got a job shortly after working for Hermes so worked out nicely for all. 
    Worked in industry thereafter and picked up some good skills. Always felt like something was missing from being employed though. Years since passed and I found myself working for a small group of companies in a senior role and after a series of retirements of senior staff/sales of shares becoming second-in-command with one man left standing at the helm (albeit at this point he is basically retired anyway with me running the show). Heart issues late last year for him and he cannot continue with any stress so I and a colleague make him an offer to buy him out in March. Sold my house and all my assets around June/July to finance as well as loan notes from the departing MD financed over the next 6 years dependent on Company performance. Concluded last month after many months of negotiations/legals etc. In many ways nothing has changed but everything has changed. I was still making all the decisions before but now nowhere to hide. Barely slept since. Working harder than I have ever worked before. Stress is already immense, we're not a huge company and have had 3 people signed off this year on depression due to issues at home, in relationships etc. - trust me, I've heard it all from staff. Latest one was on Friday at a time when I really needed this guy in, despite being shattered I am now doing his job as well as my own given other people off too. The key stress for me, before and after, is staff, owing big money is a walk in the park compared to consistently being let down by people. And despite the fact I drive a banger and live in a 1 bedroom flat and won't see a return for at least 6 years - I am apparently rolling in it if you believed the staff canteen talk. I do sometimes think they could do with a day in my shoes, put everything on the line, drag yourself in when I've basically been coughing blood the last few weeks...yep, its really easy :)!

    Well it won't work if the people you "have to" vote for are outright liars. Not the small "I didn't trouser £10,000 in expenses" kind of lie. The I stand on "option A" but eventually vote for "option B" kind of lie.
    It's offensive.

    Unfortunately some people in the Leave camp have put their own personal political ambitions above the interests of achieving a meaningful Brexit. As a result Tory members out in the sticks never got to vote. Funny how often that happens on key issues regarding the EU.

    Brilliant framing by Trump.  Get the Dems to debate publicly, without preparation, on an issue where he KNOWS they are offering a shit sandwich to voters.  They agree with him, he wins.  They disagree, he wins.
     
    Smart, smart man.
