The only prediction I will make is that the Brexit Party will get zero seats.

Why have the older generation suddenly become "thick"?
Just wondered .. I mean the remainers keep wishing all people over a certain age to die..
In my mind, it's not the older generation, it's the baby boomers. And thick is unfair, more ignorant, but they a ren't all like that, just a huge chunk who refuse to move on like the rest of the world. I'm sure you could make sweeping statements about any generation though.

Yep. As long as the remain vote met some sort of threshold to overturn the original vote.. you know..to show that the Country had changed its mind. Let's make it 60 percent.

Sensible idea though. There's got to be something we can do to move on, a general election wont do it.

Remain make up the laws as they go along. A bit like protecting democracy by ignoring 17.4 million votes.

Or 37% of the electorate..

What "law" was broken exactly?
Can someone direct me to where it is laid down?

When something is found to have no legal standing it isn't about breaking a law, it is more about not following it. Until there is a legal precedent laws are not enshrined anyway, so in this case the actions of Boris Johnson were deemed unlawful, not illegal. Now there is a legal precedent set it will be much easier in the future should the same event happen again.

Maybe if people paid a sensible price for milk, the milkmen would be on more than minimum wage and then more willing to go the extra mile?

Forgive me if I am wrong but did we not have a deal as orchestrated by Mother Theresa? Now with the EU in the driving seat surely it is that, no deal, or remain. The opposition can howl all they like but it seems pretty straightforward to me. The reason it has become protracted is the majority of MP's wish to remain and will do their utmost to delay the process.

Pretty sure it was Rees Mogg and his band of right wing nutjobs who scuppered May's deal...

If someone “replied to all” as you state, then that’s tantamount to volunteering the information.

That part is, however everyone should not have been included in the first place as they could all see the email addresses of the other people.

I’ve listened to James O’Brien book. Very enjoyable. I’m sure some of the callers were from here. Some of the clips that went viral were very funny.

I’ve read a couple of biographies. I enjoyed the Frank Skinner one a few years ago. I read the Ronnie O’Sullivan one too. Mainly for the running and addiction side as I don’t have an interest in snooker.

I rememebr reading the Frank Skinner one, that was good, I liked the honest bit about not remembering his years as an alcoholic, it was kind of haunting but also humble of him I thought.

Everyone getting paranoid over BJ being the worst PM since Lord North, the BBC single handedly trying to remove the democratically elected president of the good old US of A in a blatant show of reporting bias even by their standards, and yet dear old Xi Jinping can rattle his mighty sabre at a few concerned Hong Kong students and the UK's silent response is deafening.
Even the straits of hormuz tips it's troubled hat to the global ills but the UK media are obviously prejudiced against tousled hair individuals so if you want to get on get a haircut or be a "leftie".

Everyone says the BBC is biased, makes me laugh but I guess that proves to a degree that it isn't!

I've seen loads about Hong Kong, don't know where you're looking but it seems to be fairly well reported to me.

I worked with Kennet Radio a bit at the local elections recently, and their coverage was faster, more in depth and easier to access than the content produced by the NWN. And free to access as well.

I don't really like reading much, but I do read a lot of biographies, Nigel Mansell's and Hulk Hogan's I found particularly interesting. Recently I have read James O'Brien's how to be right and found that to really insightful and got me thinking about a lot of my own opinions. Fiction tends to bore me so I don't really indulge in it anymore.

The people that voted for them want them to attend and to be disruptive.

Do they?

I thought that the main protest against the EU was the cost so if we are making assumptions, I would assume that the people who voted for them, just want them to stay at home at not take a salary.

Last night the council declared they would back a motion to declare a climate change emergency in West Berkshire. The meeting was attended and protested by extinction rebellion in far larger numbers than I would have expected. I have never been to any sort of protest, nor have I been to observe one, and I have to say it's hard not to admire that level of passion, and they were all well behaved, well spoken, and to be fair so were the council.

I also don't see any evidence of that, those two links just point to stories that say Hitler liked it. So what? Doesn't mean it represents him, however this is all storm in a teacup stuff, we elect this idiots and should have expected something stupid like this. It is of little consequence in then grand scheme of things.

This is what will happen.

Tax people to death.
Nationalise everything.
Drive wealth creators and business owners out of the country
Spend trillions on support for everyone not working (I'll be one of them)
Give away our Nuclear deterrent
Massively increase the minimum wage putting at risk many small businesses.

I could go on... When you admire Venezuelan policy you are fooking nuts.

None of that is actually factual though is it?

Anyone seen the video of the alleged assault? I think he was rather heavy handed and clearly by his face wanted to hurt the protester, however should she have been there in the first place?

If Farage is insistent that his milkshake attacker and Jo Brand should be prosecuted, surely then so should Mr Field?

Any thoughts?

The choices aren't no deal or labour though. We could remain and still have a Tory government, although I still don't understand why people still believe the tories are economically capable.

Stewarts not up to the task, Gove has been compromised by his nose candy exploits. Gotta be Hunt. Raab might have done but he's too slippery, untrustworthy. My vote is going to Hunt.

Are you actually a member with a vote? I don't know any others! So my Strafin opinion poll research currently shows 100% support for Hunt! Or is it just a turn of phrase?
