  1. What makes you think Doris's hairdresser is younger than her? If she is, she will have closed her Facebook account. Oh, and BTW Why Republican baby boomers are more likely to share #fakenews on Facebook - MarketWatch https://www.marketwatch.com/story/why-are-republican-baby-boomers-more-likely-to-share-fakenews-on-facebook-2019-01-10 Age, not politics, is biggest predictor of who shares fake news on Facebook, study finds https://www.nbcnews.com/tech/tech-news/age-not-politics-predicts-who-shares-fake-news-facebook-study-n957246 People older than 65 share the most fake n
  2. Sorry to say this was my main worry since I started posting on this thread. Exports are real money into the coffers. Just look at China. The Minford crackpot theory of doing away with our manufacturing and agri exports is still a runner among the Brexit cheerleaders. Complete madness.
  3. What hell? You're doing it all wrong. Before Brexit, you really didn't need to go to Singapore by bus - wait for the weekly Chinese junk - then onto Doha by camel train - finally onwards from there by gondola. Have you heard of airports?
  4. Yup. 71 pages per lorry. Now we can finally be a nation of pen pushers instead of shopkeepers. Nirvana at last.
  5. They are not 'teething problems'. Brexit bureaucracy: 'These are not just teething problems' https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/business-55847259
  6. How Thatcherism laid the foundations of the housing crisis "Governments of both left and right embraced public housing. In 1953 it was the patrician Harold Macmillan who, as Tory housing minister, could boast of having completed 318,000 new homes in one year alone.

  7. Patel's comment was particularly crass in view of the famine. I think Smiley's comment was about history, rather than the present day. Nobody gets anything by insulting people. As we are about to find out.
  8. Yep, I am convinced this is at the heart of it Dugsbody. After all, the majority of the media have been telling us the EU is the enemy for years. The grating sound of "our friends and partners in the EU" belies a useful hatred of the other. Good luck with your ROW negotiations Bojo. https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/1386537/kamala-harris-news-boris-johnson-tensions-inauguration-joe-biden-brexit-spt Looking forward to years and years of saying "I told you so". In fact I think I might have some big placards made (here, not in France and Poland) with the slogan. Feck busi
  9. Agreed. I can't wait to see the land used for the American embassy (largest in London) given up for housing the homeless, an incubator for black artists and vertical agriculture. The only people that should be allowed to have diplomats here are those regimes we sell weapons to, after all, who's going to act as a conduit for the brown paper packages full of currency flinging back and forth? https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/uk-arms-sales-double-human-rights-abusers-china-saudi-arabia-israel-yemen-a8452101.html
  10. Nope. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/covid-vaccine-uk-new-strain-sage-b1791438.html
