  1. I've been going on about her for about 3 or 4 years. She's brilliant. Miraculous
  2. I reckon Crystal Palace and their Eagle would be top 6, definitely beating all the other avian badge critters and the fox, too.
  3. It goes out. You know, like ”where are you going?” ”just going out for a bit”

    I like Tulsi Gabbard and what she’s had to do to get where she’s got to shows how ingrained and rotten their system is. Maybe a year ago I read an in depth thing on it all. Truly staggering.

    It’s not, it’s a still from the video.

  9. Exactly. Like I said, my thinking is more aligned with yours, I was trying to get across that there is a logical way that MPs could justify to themselves, or excuse themselves for doing the "keep my job" thing, despite it being against the interests of the UK.
  10. Basically, yes. And that there is a way they can kind of excuse themselves for doing that, to salve their consciences.

    Ha ha. Yeah, right. This is how they "help"

    Russia's been repeatedly, intentionally bombing multiple hospitals for Assad, in Syria in recent weeks. I'm sure the Kurds have nothing to fear from those two. And Erdogan, he's a renowned respecter of human life and freedom. That lot make America look like angels, which they most certainly aren't.
  13. probably didn't even know. They don't appear to do much research, these interviewers, apart from the kind of set piece ones likes Newsnight and a few others.
  14. I'm not saying this is my thinking, but it's easy to follow the logic about Corbyn not getting in (I agree, he won't) and take that on to..."well, we're gonna get battered next election, but my Leave voting place, that voted me in will see me supporting Leave and spare me and have at least one more Labour MP next time". And of course they can square that off with "why should I support that arse, Corbyn and his incompetent approach to all this, when I can legitimately claim to be representing my constituents who want to leave" In part it makes sense, doesn't it, if if we might think that they should actually put what's best for the UK first.
  15. Have you read all of what she wrote? Johnson still facing an almighty gamble Because to me that's kind of what you'd expect someone to do writing to a deadline - the Government says [this], the flip side is [that]. The tweet is misleading in that it selectively picks only one part of what she wrote. I share the view that she's not always analytical enough, that she is probably unconsciously "establishment" biased by nature, but beyond that I don't get the rage around what she reports.
  16. It seems like it's essentially morphed into being in the actual deal, rather than being a contingency, only to be invoked in the event of various technical solutions not materialising. No wonder (from their perspective) the DUP are against .
  17. Whatever the merits of the case generally, this is a terrible point. Firstly, he may be a remainer, because as a Doctor he can see remain as less damaging to the NHS, for example. Like a Hedge fund manager might be a Leaver because he could see how his industry could benefit. Or he may be because some other reason unrelated to medicine. He's still someone with better info in the area upon which he was commenting thatn the Fraud he was speaking to on the radio. Secondly, if we are to ignore the views of Remainers, because, well, they're remainers. We should also apply the same to Leavers. So then who do we listen to?
  18. Clear to you, as in that's your interpretation, fine. But there were lots of contradictory, conflicting and untrue claims made about what we would be voting for. Farage, Hannan, Johnson, Gove, and various other throbbers were saying all sorts of versions of what they thought Brexit meant, almost from day to day, as did the various official manifestoey documenty things - for example Nothing about Tarrifs, customs checks, and all the rest, and it's certainly not clearly sending the message and saying " we will be out of the Single Market" - at my most charitable I could say it is disingenuous and confusing, but basically it's shown to be bollex.

    She's not in a poor metal state or mentally unhealthy. As to the hatered that's directed towards her - there she is saying that we should act to save humans and the planet and the abuse is all coming from people who don't want to protect humans and the planet, they want to protect their money at the expense of humans and the planet, and from the deluded followers of that selfish set of whoppers.
  20. Lived there, but wasn't (isn't) he an Aussie. Sort of more understandable.
