    Caravan Monster got a reaction from The Idiocrat in Oh, the Umunnaty!   
    Blair is almost certainly the organisation and funding behind the new globalist corporatist authoritarian party, he has said as much in interview and is only keeping quiet because even he is aware of the toxicity of his name. My worry is that there is some Mandelson-esque plan in the offing to further distance political accountability and voting from the political process. Many MPs seem to becoming increasingly brazen about ignoring the popular will.

    Welcome to the future. We expect to import the world's tribes to our shores and expect them to drop millenia aged greivances...multi-culturalism...seriously, has it ever f**king worked? It is like we want to re-create a Northern Ireland of the Troubles era, some people just don't mix!
    I do agree that for the average Joe discrimination against Jews is some alien concept as we just don't come across them that much.

    It's the apparent anti-semitism amongst the political class I'm on about, Muslims seem to disapprove of everyone who isn't in their gang to varying degrees mostly on historical / theological grounds. Outside of normal international relations with Israel, the traditional Jewish community in this country is tiny and it should barely register as an issue to Parliamentarians. What is going on in the middle east is of no concern at all to the very large majority of the constituents they are supposed to represent. They are hellbent on bringing culturally incompatible ideas and problems as well as people from around the globe and making them our problem too, when they should be nothing to do with our nation.

    Caravan Monster got a reaction from OurDayWillCome in "That's why I really want to get back to Britain because I know it will be taken care of - health-wise, at least,"   
    There does seem to be a degree of the MSM trolling it's audience with ever more ridiculous minority identity (sexual / religious / political) stories, but to what end? Is it all distract, divide and conquer? Or is there really that much more crazy out there in the world?

    I'm told average post war household expenditure (presumably of the husband's income) was approximately third on food, third on rent, last third for everything else.

    'Nick Lowles' creates quite a google rabbit hole, very radical with serious allegations going back a long way made against him. Proper scary how such a politically extreme organisation has managed to secure government support. What was the decision making process behind that funding? A nice but dim civil servant thinking an organisation with a name like that must be full of loving people working to bring cohesion to the world, or was it some nefarious establishment character looking to bring further division to society? Amusingly Lowles appears to have as many aliases as TR and they both are alleged to receive funding from Israeli / Zionist organisations.
    I hope TR is successful in this endeavour, the classist attitudes in some higher echelons of society are something most people are kind of aware of, but don't really accept.

    Caravan Monster reacted to SNACR in which expensive cars   
    Have a look at either a Fiat Doblo or its twin the last model Vauxhall Combo LWB high roof. Very rare used I believe so command a premium. Ok the high roof's a fugly abortion and it's got Fiat mechanicals but the 1.6 Multijet diesel's in tonnes of vehicles so fairly tried and tested and if it did lunch itself probably be in abundance from breakers.
    There is a long list of plus points though
    Car derived van type footprint and manners
    Big enough to accommodate two full size pallets in the back
    Payload of 1 ton (which is huge a LWB Sprinter can only take 1.3 ton)
    Much better fuel economy than the larger vans as well.
    I haven't got one at the moment but I am considering acquiring some of them as an option for getting emergency pallets out of overspill storage or shuttling them between warehouses. I was also considering pick-up trucks but they're limited as would only be suitable on the same industrial estate area in the dry. I've got LWB Sprinters that are already used for a variety of roles but they're a lot more money, to move an extra 300kg pallet given they'll be parked up a lot of the time. Also some staff find the idea of driving them a bit intimidating so there's a reluctance to drive them and a small number of people end up as essentially designated drivers. 
    Another upside is I suspect strong residuals, over the lesser volume models, if the stealth camper/living van craze continues.

    Caravan Monster got a reaction from Bedrag Justesen in which expensive cars   
    Strange times for second hand van buyers. For Class VII (3.5 ton gross) vans, depreciation from new to auctioned off from the fleet owners at around 4 years is even bigger than cars, something like £50k new falling to £5k. Trouble is buying the current crop of ex fleet vehicles is a risky proposition because of the well known problems relating to fragile and complex components required to comply with euro emissions regs. Commentators seem to agree that diesel commercials will continue into the medium term, although they sound keen on increasing requirement for tachographs and increased legislative interference in commercial vehicle design.
    If .gov really cared about reducing pollution, they could incentivise businesses to run smaller vehicles when appropriate. I don't need the big van 80% of the time and would seriously consider running a second small car based van, but it would cost too much as things are.

    Big fan of Hoggs of Fife boots Generally get 18 months+ of very hard work use and plenty of walking from them. They do a variety of those 'dealer' type boots if that is what you are after. Allegedly made in Scotland. Think I must be on something like my eighth pair of 'Tornados':

    Caravan Monster reacted to Dave Bloke in Macron - how long before wheels fall off   
    Since Christmas Macron has increased his poll rating by an unprecedented 11%
    What, Turkeys voting for Christmas? How can this be?
    Well as part of his measures to appease the Gilets Jaunes he launched "The Big Debate". Well there is not much debating. People submit their questions to the authorities. Macron has a week to crib the answers with his team then he spends 6 to 7 hours at a time hectoring anyone who turns up - all this reshown on live TV. Effectively a day long party political broadcast in the run up to the European elections. All funded by the Turkeys erm I mean tax payers. Of course most people don't have time for this flim-flam but the retired, sitting at home with nothing to do but watch "that nice young man who really looks after his mum", are lapping it all up.
    And what of Europe and those two staunch anti-Europeans Marine Lepen and Jean-Lucky-Luc Melenchon. Well they've been told their legal and financial problems might go away if they drop their opposition to Europe. Lepen has even appointed a pro Lisbon treaty politician as her new advisor. Macron relishes facing Lepen again in 2022 as his main opponent as he feels he can easily beat her and is currently helping her politically, inviting her to the Elysees for talks and such like.

    Bunch of cucks desperately trying to find a way out of leaving on wto rules because the situation might require them to behave like leaders. Judging from the comments, even those who are not ashamed to call themselves conservatives want the clean break.

    I could see the Queen playing quite a pivotal role in a post brexit rebalancing of the constitution to address areas where parliament, the government and the eu have over stepped their mark in the drive toward authoritarianism and globalism. She's probably got a year or two left in her and would have a good deal of support amongst us stupid gammons in the sense of a nominal national figurehead with the conventionally never used authority to rein in parliament and government in constitutional emergencies, such as ceding sovereignty to supranational organisations.
