  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. Margaret Thatcher’s government would put a stop to all that when it took office in 1979. Council housing was seen by a new generation of Conservatives as a last resort for the neediest. Homes were sold off under the “right-to-buy” policy that became one of the defining features of the Thatcher era, in which tenants were handed
  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
  11. Are you one of these? http://omgfacts.com/kings-used-to-have-a-guy-who-helped-them-poop/
  12. Oh well, Scotland will never leave now Nigel Farage launches new party in Scotland to promote 'positive case for the Union' https://www.theneweuropean.co.uk/brexit-news/westminster-news/nigel-farage-party-to-challenge-snp-nicola-sturgeon-6897148 Christ on a bike, I hope they leave. The Brexit people want it too and they usually get what they want.
  13. Quite. And they're still at it. https://www.economist.com/britain/2021/01/10/britains-immediate-economic-prospects-are-grim
  14. Don't you think history would be different if nobody was allowed to listen to Hitler? The obvious bull shit of demagogues should be silenced, like this https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-china-55608089
  15. I agree. I am sure he was more moderate in the good old pre-Brexit done days. It's given me a theory about how radicalisation works (not directed at you KZB). The doubling-down syndrome happens because people hate being wrong, so they must pursue more and more honey traps for the uninformed. It's an addictive drive. They all end up as food, totally digested, for the clever Venus Fly traps of misinformation. Social media is the cancer and it's reached stage 4. It should be banned. Human beings were not meant to have so much nagging information at their fingertips.
  16. Well the 58 million is across both the EU and the UK. But obviously the UK wins with the best song at £31 billion. BTW, you are not talking about the Birds of Fire album? Lice is right. Amazing AI spell checks these days - how they can look around their location, take a snapshot of how dire the situation is, and chose the right word to describe it rather than merely correct it 🙂
  17. Yes, we were promised less red tape. Just because the maggots promised it and you read it in the Daily Mail doesn't make it true. https://www.complianceweek.com/report-brexit-red-tape-will-cost-exporters-58-billion-a-year/8658.article
  18. You see. Small mindedness at work again. First. On the immigration of workers. Odysseus said nobody should be allowed in unless they are highly qualified. So the crops will rot. He suggest automation. No doubt he is working with Johnson and his band of visionaries to not only come up with a new, world-beating range of British AI crop-gatherers - but has plans to offer a generous leasing system so farmers can afford it. Second. Take the daffodil and eel farmers likely bankruptcy, and multiply that by 1000s for SMEs up and down the country. Make Britain England great again.
  19. Take daffodils and apply it to every sector which has export potential - IOW, multiply by 1000s. See the problem? BTW, how do you automate eel farming? Just asking for a friend.
