He'll talk to Hamas, Hezbollah and the IRA, but he won't talk to the Maybot. It's like when you're out in the country and you see a hedgehog on the top of a fencepost, you know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while up there, he's elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb **** put him there to begin with.

Newres???😂

Gove gave a good speech. Destroyed Corbyn. Mind you...that is a bit of an open goal.

Apparently one is not allowed to call it stop c**k or a ball c**k or anything else that the over sensitive may find offensive. So now you just call your local plumber and say you have a "problem" and he/she takes a deep intake of breath and quotes the GNP of a banana republic on a take it or leave it basis.
But at least you know you won't be accused of using none pc language. rolleyes.gif


You can be a Nazi or a Commie on this forum but you can't say **** (the place where the devil resides)....

You lucky old thing you. Show your appreciation for the local canines by getting them some chocolate bars, (Cadbury's dairy milk is ideal); about 3 bars / hound should have the desired effect.
ps. It wasn't me who suggested it.

Not sure I can get said chocolate bars in due to the huge premier fence. But it's good to know that someone is making millions without working. Lifestyle choice. Innit.

I need to re-home a small dog. It's a white terrier and tends to bark a lot. If you are interested, let me know, and I'll jump over the neighbours fence and get it for you.

Count yourself lucky. My drug dealing baron next door (doesn't work, all meetings between 12pm and 6am), has several attack dogs barking and roaming about his property. 🙄

Nothing deteriorates quicker than a disused building. There was work in the car park about 3 months ago but nothing since so it is assumed that the developers then pulled out. On a side issue I do have trouble seeing the homeless sat in town centre doorways in the wet when there are empty buildings stood...well empty. But of course our beloved council would rather spend money on a flash cycle path along the A4.


Don't worry comrade Corbyn is going to "end" homelessness. I guess he is going to have kidnap squads for the ones that choose to live on the streets and turn down offers of help!

That sounds even more downmarket...the gambling shops anyway.

I wouldn't worry. Most gambling establishments will close this year when the FOBT menace finishes. This particular site will most likely be flats.

'Final Report
July 2010'??
Is the report still relevant or was it just another one amongst tens of thousands of reports published just to keep Eurocrats and their well paid underlings busy.

Still relevant. It looks at which countries can "absorb" the most people based on land mass. That ain't changed.

Does anyone know if the Narrowboat is scheduled to reopen?

There was talk of a retail redevelopment of the area but I see the pub is still there and there is no evidence of construction work.

Walking along the Kennet a few days ago, I could not help but notice how shabby and downmarket the area around the pub is now.

2 coffees shops, 2 betting shops would be my guess.😂

Worth a download. It's the EUs supposed worst case scenario.
See table 12.

On and I see Macron is now rounding up the yellow vest leaders.
Bit like the STILL imprisoned Catalonia leaders.

I sense a pattern...🙄

So you're happy with TM's deal then? If so, fine. Problem is that the right don't like it and Labour are opportunistically seeking an election out of it. The result is it won't get through parliament. It's Rees Mogg and his cronies scuppering the referendum.

My preference is a clean break as personally I think the EU is doomed to failure. I may be wrong but no one can see the future. It's just opinion. Like yours.

I don’t though. The angry brigade are definitely on the right and threatening violence if “democracy” isn’t honoured as if giving people a final say isn’t democracy.

The people voted to leave the EU. TM’s deal delivers exactly that.

I don't mind a final say, as long as we have another final say shortly after if I dont like the result.

I take that back. All Brexiteers are Gammons, but not all that voted Brexit are Brexiteers. Many have changed their minds.

And many remainers are now brexiteers as they take offence at the #fbpe crowd and sneering liberal elitists like this.

Do you think all brexiteers are "Gammons"?

So what is wrong with boarding an A350 from Tehran and landing at Heathrow? Certainly cheaper and less hassle, which poses the question, what is the truth behind the headlines? Note to self, must buy copy of Grauniad next time out. rolleyes.gif
How many families in this country could lay their hands on 20K let alone those who feel threatened in a middle eastern plutocracy? One for the historians to mull over next century.


Quite. I don't buy the while migrant crisis thing just before the brexit vote and I also don't buy all these Iranians with 20k on the hip not being mugged by the Africans that have been in France for months if not years. Smacks of Soros / Our Government / EU / Far right money. Actually suits em all!! Well dodgy.

My answer totally contradicts this though. If you focussed on facts rather than what you believe you’d be less angry.

Wealthy people can be refugees by the way. Which double contradicts your point that they are after our welfare system. Think of the wealthy Jews fleeing Nazism.


Why is an opinion you disagree with "angry"? I guess all the Russian billionaires who have fallen out with Putin are also "refugees" then???

QUOTE (Andy Capp @ Dec 31 2018, 12:01 PM) *
He did answer it correctly:





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?


The issue is newres seems to THINK everyone is a refugee if they don't live in a prosperous country. I don't. Some of these Iranians are paying 20k just to cross. 5 adults at 4k a pop. They are not short of a few Bob and they are "fleeing" the 6th biggest economy in the world. France. Doesn't quite add up to a refugee in my view.
