    Hoax hate

    Good find Sarah. This is the MAGA school kids "harassing" the red indian when actually a longer video shows that it is entirely the other way around. He goes up into them and starts chanting into the kid's face.

    That's brilliant! It reads like you are studying the history of Wetherspoons' menus. It's similar to that first edition Argos book that did the rounds a few years ago which was really interesting.

    I thought it needed a bit of elucidation; it did appear that I was positing that as a valid long term diet. I wasn't.

    He was elderly and had the early stages of dementia, he used to regularly get lost, he lived alone in a flat and his son was relieved that he wasn't trying to cook at home and that he was eating regularly. I used to do similar on football away days: huge fry up (like Spoons but with added chips) for breakfast and didn't eat again that day.

    Plus 246 for the black pudding so 1761. Interestingly you won't see such menus on their website as the prices vary by pub. I asked about this and the answer was that each pub has an imputed rent which feeds into the prices. It's not huge amounts but 20p, 30p. I only noticed because we had breakfast in one Spoons then had a long drive home so picked out our evening meals from the menu over coffee and their prices were different.

    trans madness

    Relativism. All legal lifestyles are equally valid. It's the tolling bell of a collapsing civilisation. It is a civilisation losing confidence in the values that had made it successful and abandoning them so descending into the void of failed civilisations waiting to be put out of their torpor into extinction like the Romans.

    Brexit Betrayal thread

    Whilst I support him I think that Batten's appointment of Tommy Robinson has taken away the universal appeal that UKIP had for leavers. Nigel Farage retains that universal appeal. Nobody needs to argue the case for Batten and Robinson to me because I know it and I support them; but I accept that puts me in a minority. If the sole leaver party was UKIP then remain will win IMO. If it was The Brexit party then leave will win. It's that simple to me; but I hope that it doesn't come to that anyway.

    I would have a close look at the packet next time. There is a small symbol which shows that they are funding islam. It looks something like this but may be green and probably doesn't have the words.

    Brexit Betrayal thread

    A lot of what Gerard Batten has said and done, whilst generally popular here, is going to have alienated a lot of people who supported Brexit in the referendum and voted for UKIP in every European election for years. UKIP as was would have been a straightforward choice in the voting: you want the Brexit promised to you then vote for us. It isn't any more so to have the option to vote again in The Brexit Party for a single-issue political party without any other baggage means that it will hoover up every Leave voter whilst the Remainer splinter and scatter amongst the other parties who are trying to fight both a referndum and a general election at the same time. UKIP get my vote every time but if this snap GE happens then I want them to withdraw and in doing so guarantee that the promised Brexit happens.

    For me it has to be Michael Fabricant MP; 68 and with the full hair of a teenager. And it's not a syrup. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/tory-mp-michael-fabricant-admits-3524194 https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/tory-mp-michael-fabricant-admits-3524194

    I think that by his standing down with the referendum won he has demonstrated that he isn't somebody who clings to power. He is a trustworthy politician IMO; the very opposite of Bercow and Boris Johnson.

    I view it very differently. UKIP under Farage had a general appeal because it was first and foremost a single issue party: vote UKIP if you want Brexit. And it won. UKIP post Farage with the Brexit referendum won (yes, I know) has become a fully fledged political party with policies on a whole range of issues. It's still called UKIP but it's not the single issue party it used to be; for good reason. Now with that hard won victory in doubt people who support Brexit no longer have that vanilla single issue party for which to vote. So the obvious solution is to recreate it. The most important current issue bar none IMHO is achieving Brexit so in the event of a snap GE to have one party standing for Brexit and only for Brexit could do very well indeed; with the Remainer vote split three ways between ConLibLab. It would require UKIP to concede that there is only one issue in town right now and stay its hand by not fielding any candidates.

    "The Brexit Party" has been registered by Catherine Blaiklock and Nigel Farage is ready to get involved again; good man to step back in during his country's hour of need. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/brexit/8236819/nigel-farage-new-brexit-party/

    He was elderly. He wasn't fat as this was all that he ever ate. Per the Sun it's 1761 calories. One of those a day is the ideal diet. https://www.thesun.co.uk/fabulous/food/4609803/this-is-how-many-calories-are-in-a-wetherspoons-breakfast-and-its-pretty-mind-blowing/
