Had some good nights in that pub back in the eighties!
Used to be packed out most nights. Was the "in pub" amongst many at that time!
Called The White House in those days.
Live bands etc.

Yes, I agree there!

The question is loaded and cherry picking the replies of ignorant people doesn’t advance the debate, but yes; there’re gammons everywhere.

If you want asylum, why not go to the embassy or a border crossing point and officially ask for asylum. If you enter the country illegally, you are not an asylum seeker, you are a illegal alien.

To ask for asylum after you get caught is not an asylum seeker, your still a criminal.

“Britain received less than 4 per cent of all asylum claims made in the EU during last year.”

More than 230 people have attempted to cross the English Channel in small boats since November, according to a tally being kept by BBC News.

How many asylum seekers are there?

In 2017, there were 26,350 applications for asylum made in the UK.

This compares with 198,255 applications for asylum made in Germany, 126,550 in Italy and 91,070 in France over the same period.

In total in the UK, there were 21,290 decisions made with 31.8% gaining some form of protection.

I think your choice of the word “cancer” amply demonstrates why gammon is appropriate.

Gammon is OK, but I see gammons on both sides of the debate. I feel for the sake of democracy we have to see it through.

Contradiction in terms. Like a Brexit Libtard.

It might technically, but I have seen lots of cornflake spitting from remainers of late.

What do you disagree with?

I don’t believe May’s deal is sufficient to cut the cancer out.

Well they were wrong. However MPs can now ask us just to make sure we're sure. May's deal or remain. I'm content now to accept either, though I think it's better to remain. A hard Brexit with no deal is off the table.

I disagree, if we don’t brexit properly, then the EU sceptics will remain as a political cancer.

He did answer it correctly:

Can you explain to me your definition of someone who is not a refugee? Enlighten me...


QUOTE (newres @ Dec 30 2018, 07:31 AM) *
Someone who has not left home to escape war or political violence.


A refugee is someone who seeks shelter after fleeing a war torn country.

Therefore, someone who is not a refugee is someone who has not fleed a war torn country.

Were you meant to have asked: give me an example of a migrant who is not a refugee?

All this cobblers: there are far too many people with vested interests in many outcomes to see either the EU or UK go down the pan.

We’re playing into Putin’s hands though.

It seems to me to be counter productive to confiscate it as won’t that increase the likelihood of them causing more crime to replenish their stock!

Never mind. You'll have the privilege of paying 3% extra for it from next year.

Fortunately from that perspective, my place of work is changing so will not be directly impacted by the increase.

Ive had my second non-urgent appointment cancelled and have been waiting since July. I’ll have to wait until it is an emergency and inoperable I suppose.

Face it the Country has gone to the dogs,wall or any other formulaic idiom you care to use. Sort of free for all where the points of law are so blurred that it is acceptable to break them and, as very few get caught, why should they worry. In the grand scheme of things a dodgy taxi firm is small fry compared to confronting a knife wielding yob.

I haven’t seen anyone say it is acceptable to break these laws, other than maybe those that endorse policies to starve services of financial resources to do the job required.

Unlicensed taxis is something that’s been around an awful long time and not a new phenomenon.

Coincidentally, the first paragraph has obviously not been proof read.

STATISTICS
chiefs have written to the Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonell to demand they send their aides for a meeting on the misuse of data after concerns the Labour party is making extraordinary claims with little evidence or proof.

Statistics, please don't shout at me.

The?

What does evidence not prove what proof does?

If that was on a paper copy of a CV, it would start the next barbecue.

Evidence is not necessarily proof. Proof is usually emphatic. Where as evidence is often a constituent of proof.
