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

Personally I think the term right wing nut jobs should only be used when referring to exremist groups like the EDL. But anyone right of centre is now a "right wing nut job" eh?

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.

We need to leave as I have shorted the pound.🤣

I see the "chosen one" is still astride the garden fence in that in a GE he will propose another referendum to decide our future relationship with europe. Where the F**K has the man been for the last 3 years? I tell you we will still be at this point when my g/children are drawing their pension.

As for Ms Thornberry. I'll get a deal and then recommend we remain in a referendum. The art of the deal she ain't got.🤣🤣🤣

Unelectable. Lammy, Corbyn, Abbott, McDonnell, Thornberry... the list is endless. How is it possible for an opposition to be languishing so far behind in the polls after the calamity of the current incumbents?

Keeping his head down. Still at least Mr 'impartial' Bercows off.

And his poor constituents actually get to have a vote for the first time in 10 years at a GE.

With the limp dems gaining disenfranchised MPs like a schoolboy collects stamps it is only a question of time before they have enough to form a government and our lover's tiff with europe will be resolved. Boris on the other hand has upset the environmental lobby by the suggestion of polluting the nearest ditch. Silly person!!!! tongue.gif tongue.gif tongue.gif


As parliament is ungovernable and we have the real chance of civil unrest, it would not be unreasonable to deploy the Civil Contingencies Act tomorrow. This wonderful bit of legislation introduced by Mr Tony Blair on 2004 allows the government of the day to call a national emergency, close down parliament and deploy troops on the street for 30 days.🤣

I doubt he does. BUT his company benefits directly from CAP. So it is a conflict of interest. And all this rubbish about caring about the poorest of his constituents he has been spouting... yeah.. of course...

Yes, apparently. But then I did sum speeling at skoole. Mr I've got a literature degree!

Benyon is no longer a Conservative MP. Was always going to vote for staying in the EU. Didn't want to lose his CAP payments. At least he won't be the Tory MP for Newbury anymore.

I can see what BJ is doing, but he's playing with fire. Brinkmanship is one thing but he's betting the pot on a pair of eights, gunna crash n burn and hand the whole game over to the dark lord of Marxist chaos.

Can't see it myself. Only a 1/4 of the electorate would ever be mad enough to vote in Steptoe. If BJ gets 40 percent of the vote by joining forces with Farage it gets him a comfortable majority. The only way he could lose is if there was a Lib/Lab/Green pact to only deploy 1 candidate on a remain ticket.

This current government won't make it beyond 31st October so it is probably best to outline their plans sooner rather than later because otherwise they won't get the chance to do so at all.

And what will happen after a GE. My guess... a hung parliament with the Tories as the biggest party or a small majority for them. 😂 Won't solve anything...did you see the "protests?" yesterday? Never seen so many middle class white people in one place. Sums it up.

Johnson has intimated that a "get tough" policy on crime is on the cards so his acid test as leader may well be in this field as opposed to the european farce that occupies the press. Undoubtedly the vehicle involved has been "spirited" away so all the accused need to do is sit in the interview room answering "no comment" to every question while the clock ticks down. One can only hope there is sufficient forensic evidence to bring them to trial though I doubt very few would bat an eyelid at the idea of "lex talionis" in a disused quarry.

They will all go no comment apart from pinning it on the 13 year old. He'll get a spell in youth custodial and all the rest will walk away to rob and murder elsewhere... when he gets out he will get looked after.

Appalling incident. sad.gif

Said on the news tonight that police are interviewing people living in a group of caravans.
That'll no doubt the traveller's camp about 2 miles away at Paices Hill; a location, police are regularly in attendance at.

You often see on police documentaries where they are pursuing a vehicle
and it turns into traveller encampment; the driver soon disappears into a hostile crowd.

Fortunately there was another officer present, so hopefully he can contribute vital evidence,
along with police car's cameras.

For the murder of Police + Prison officers we should reintroduce Hanging.


Heard the same earlier in the town. Until an example is made (I'm not a death penalty advocate) then nothing will change. Hard labour. And I mean breaking rocks in chains. Sod the do gooders. Make them suffer... for a long time.

I am immensely saddened and shocked to read that a police officer lost his life last night whilst in pursuit of his duties, I think it's a measure of society that this can happen. My thoughts and condolences go out to his family and brother officers. 😔

Let's hope life means life in these circumstances and that joint enterprise laws mean they are all banged up indefinitely.

And it's a shame about those two guards dying in that freak road accident next week.

You just know that is inevitable.. they have already been "relieved" of duty. One could have a "heart attack" and the other a "brain haeommarge"... one things for certain. They ain't gonna see a court room. Would you give them life insurance?

I agree that in this case nobody would argue that this is a breach that should not be reported. The more general point that I was trying to make is that although there is no threshold for reporting a breach there is also no requirement for reporting a breach either if in your subjective assessment no serious harm has been done. To be clear, I'm not saying that is the case here but it is a handy get out clause since it relies on the judgment of the individual who is potentially at fault or possibly others within the same organisation who also may not be that keen to expose their own potential failings.


Hopefully they at least employ some penetration test experts or at least consultants or a business. They hold the details of hundreds of thousands of bank accounts by the civica platform they use....

It's OK. We will have plenty of Donald Trumps chlorinated chicken to eat. Yum yum. 😂 I see Brexit caused the power cut tonight as well. Bl00dy Brexit. Far right leavers. Scum of the earth. And we are in recession. I always said it was a huge mistake and we should stay and hand over control to Brussels.

Not sure about that, but I heard an interesting fact yesterday that the country at any one time only holds 8 days food supplies. I doubt anyone will starve but I imagine choice could be hugely compromised. Weíll definitely stock up on a few things although I do expect no deal to be avoided.

How will no deal be avoided? It takes compromise and the EU ain't budging. Even a vote of no confidence in the government is irrelevant now. We are all doomed fella. It's the final countdown. Better get some underpants on your head and 2 lollipop sticks up your nose... I.may not be able to get my chateaux neuf de pap? Or I may have to order it on line from France and wait a day or two? How will I cope?

I donít see anything wrong with majority voting. I honestly donít get the fear. Iím guessing youíre all ok with the EU navy? Itís just hilarious. Or it would be.

Incidentally, other than very isolated incidents, there has been and would be no unrest from the Remain side. Whatever the outcome.


Majority voting opens up the possibility of fraudulent behaviour to get votes. It also stops a country with a veto (us) from having to accept things we don't want. Like the Euro. As for civil unrest, yes I am sure remainers wouldn't do civil unrest. They are too busy being preachy about how intelligent they are and how thick brexiteers are. Some may call it arrogance. I call it facism.

ABC. Iím hoping Labour will ditch Corbyn before itís too late but Iím not hopeful.

As a Brexiteer I'm desperate they keep him. Corbyn is the most unelectable opposition leader in history. He makes Michael Foot look right wing. Interestingly the Brecon bye election was still won as a percentage of leave v remain by leave. Even after all the warnings. The problem remain have is views are now so entrenched that no amount of scaremongering will work. People have just had enough. Personally I've reached the don't give a sh1t stage. I'll still vote leave but don't actually care now as long as something happens on Oct 31st. Anymore delay and I see civil unrest by both sides! One word of warning though to the EU evangelists. The new plan In the EU into get rid of vetos and have majority voting to implement new laws and regulations. Don't even get me started on what that might mean...

Is anyone aware of a low cost professional will writing service in Newbury? (I was quoted £375 + VAT this morning which seems very expensive for what I believe to be a simple estate). I am looking for a service where I can sit with someone and talk through what I want to happen. Has anyone used Goodwills Ltd who advertise in the NWN each week? Thanks

My advice. See a Solicitor. Might be a but more expensive but it may save a lot of hassle later. Depends on your Financial circumstance but if you have enough assets to be thinking about a will then it's worth it. We used Horsey Lightly and they have been very good.

I predict that nothing will happen until the end of October. Up until that point Boris will bluster and achieve nothing. He will then try to leave without a deal, which Parliament will reject. What happens after that point will be more interesting and will be not quite as easy to predict.

Quite easy fella. General Election. Brexit Party and Conservatives join forces. Liberals and Greens join forces and ask Labour but Corbyn rejects and fields candidates. Lib/Lab vote is split and a hard no deal Brexit follows. Jeremy Corbyn will in the end ensure a no deal hard Brexit. Which he has wanted all along.
