Shame on you. Suicide and "moron" should not be in the same sentence. Sad. You really are losing the plot. 42 days. Tic toc

No, I would rather be proved wrong. If I jumped off a cliff and didn't seriously injure myself then I would also be happy with that outcome.

Have you ever jumped off a cliff?

Might be worth reading Nick Comfort's latest book. Very good discourse looking at the collapse of UK commerce since 1952. A chapter explains the failure of our education system illustrated by the reduction in examination standards, the simplification of the cirriculem etc. Followed by a chapter saying much the same thing about our further education approach. In simple terms, these days clever people might not be anywhere near as clever as they might imagine.

Couldn't agree more.

That may be more to do with the growth of emerging economies as anything if it transpires. It seems to me that people are desperate for the EU to collapse because it would make our population look less stupid when our own economy collapses.

Whereas Europhiles like you are desperate for the UK to collapse. Just so you can say "told you". SHAME. SHAME. SHAME.

I confess I wasn’t aware of that, however the decision was taken in 2017. No one with half a brain cell would have taken that decision now or in the last 12 months. I expect that like Nissan they were given assurances. The climate changed when it became clear that the EU would not capitulate on its principles and the loons started talking about no deal and WTO. I’m trying hard not to be disparaging about the members of the public that have picked this up and peddle the idea on phone ins and social media, but it is economic suicide and would deliver us back to the 70s.

We will never be back in the 70s. Thatcher saw to that. The days of Union's holding the Country to ransom are gone. More drivel from our resident remainiac...

Gonna be a basket case, Germany on the brink of recession, Italy in recession, French economy stagnating, Poland has a shrinking economy. Not looking good is it.

It is for the UK if this rabble in parliament can extricate themselves from the trough of the EU expenses and the like.

To an extent I agree. When I went, that's exactly how it was - 10% went. I think there should be more than 10% and I think for most, degrees should be vocational - teaching, law, nursing etc. Certainly if you've got to pay for it, it ought to earn its money.

Correct and vocational degrees like you mention should be free, with a prerequisite that you do a certain amount of time in the case of nursing for example say in the NHS after. You see we can agree on something. And yes ten percent is probably a bit low. 15 to 20? Free degrees for vocational subjects would encourage people to do degrees that would benefit society. Pay for your media studies or sports science..

Does it matter? Any discipline to degree level is surely better than no education? It means they are beyond O' & A' level. Media studies, if it means training in critically assessing what the media is telling us is surely entirely useful in the current left/right MSM/Non MSM debate. No?

Have you got a degree? What's your degree in?

Time travel and fermentation science. Yes.. You can..

In my view University should be for the top 10 percent of students who' show academic prowess. The rest should get a job or an apprenticeship (And yes serious investment should be made in vocational apprenticeships). University is seen as some sort of "right of passage" now and the old poly's are all 'Universities". For a lot it's just a 3 or 4 year jolly where they do 5 hours a week, end up with a 2 2 and 50k of debt that they will never have a job well paid enough to pay back. Crock of sh1t.

You missed the bit about all the old gits that died. laugh.gif

The funny thing is the average age of a UK citizen has risen since brexit. It is rising all the time and is now 40. So the whole argument is completely flawed.

In that case you should accept that it was a snapshot vote on that day. There were lies told and there were protest votes (I know one person who voted leave but wanted to remain but give Cameron a bloody nose). The truly democratic thing would be a final vote on the deal or remain. Polls indicate 56% would vote remain now.


Ok but can we have another vote if remain only win by a bit?
I mean.. we need to be consistent.

Hungary is telling their people "Have four children and pay no income tax for life". So who's going to end up filling that financial gap.

That's what happens when you try to harmoginise many countries into one superstate.... still the EU stormtroopers will soon sort it...

We survived the poll tax riots and France will survive these protests. The right wing narrative is that Europe is screwed so we're doing the right thing in leaving. It's only about disparaging the rest of the EU and saying we're better off out. I never hear anything positive about us leaving. Even Brexit's biggest economic fan says the automotive industry and farming will collapse and Rees Mogg says we'll know it it worked in 50 years! It's beyond stupid!

Are you on day release? I do hope your carer knows you post on here...

The difference is that the one doing the prediction is the only economist that believes Brexit will be good for us and is the one trotted out by ERG. Imagine their embarrassment when the clip emerged. But actually forecasting is pretty accurate. They got the timing wrong with some things after the Brexit vote because the market reacted cautiously but if a no deal Brexit happens we’ll feel the results for decades. It’s total insanity. Find a single economist besides Minford that sees anything other than a significant downturn.

But Germany is going into recession, look at the economies of Spain, of Greece, even France is turning into a right mess! The EU is like all social engineering experiments doomed ultimately to fail.

The Germans and French are screwed. Fact. They have tried to absorb far to many countries (ring any bells) and far to many migrants in far to short a time period. The chickens are about to sit down and roost.

Prediction is not exactly a science, nobody knows what's going to happen yet but the doomsayers are out in force. Let's not forget TM was predicted to gain by a landslide, brexiteers were predicted to lose, Our Don was predicted to be runner up and WW1 was predicted to be over by Christmas.


And Germany is going to go into recession. I guess newres and co will blame Brexit. And not Merkel. Or any EU policy.🤣

The voice of reason will, hopefully, resonate above the monosyllabic tripe that is an increasing norm in the debating world but I am not prepared to save oxygen awaiting. I agree that the mud slinging on here is probably mild compared to some but, like global warming, the loss of oratory skills will creep insidiously into our lives to the detriment of our ability to communicate and ultimately survive.


Indeed. And there are far more important things in the world than the EU and Brexit. I for one can't wait for the 29th March to come and go so we can focus on something else.

Firstly my last sentence is bang on the money and secondly I have never defended 'Tommeh' merely his right to justice under the legal system, something you (apparently) are quite content to forgo based on the fact you don't like his views.
And third, you rant on about people insulting you but when, and it's almost always every time you post on here you provoke and encourage said abuse. You come across as a spoiled, overindulged, self important brat. Always seeking attention, always insulting in tone and giving a good impression of a small boy who lost his dummy out of the pram.

Newres is the worst kind of liberal remoaner. I really don't understand why anyone that despises the Country they live in and indeed that Countries history would want to stay in that said Country. He is I am afraid just a very sad bitter man.
