  1. I've just had a quick look on the Guardian site and I can see no mention of her on the front page, the Daily Mail on the other hand has her and Corbyn all over it. So as far as poster girls go I think she's probably one for the Mail, so they can spew their racist bile all over her. Bugger! just refreshed the Guardian and they've now picked up the Corbyn story!

    And in the meantime the Brexit dividend keeps on giving, with Honda reported to be closing their Swindon factory https://www.theguardian.com/business/2019/feb/18/carmaker-honda-plans-to-close-swindon-factory-reports

    But you are an advocate of it, which makes you a leaver

    Don't start distracting people with facts. True believers, in the one true Brexit, only need the opinions from their shouty mate in Wetherspoons, They don't want any of this evidence based rubbish!.

    Well, why not be selective in your posts, and take the US jobless figures immediately after a global financial crash and compare them with those after 10 years of growth and try and infer that the orange idiot had somethig to do with it. Talk about apples and oranges.

    Mmmm! witch hunt - would that be the witch hunt where all of the protagonists so far have plead guilty to their crimes, doesn't sound much like a witch hunt to me, rather a case of the law clearing the swamp, something the orange Buffon has singularly failed to do. As to Venuzuela, looks like a bit of "Look over there" to try and distract from Trump, a manufactured problem manufactured by the US. But you just carry on telling lies like your hero, the Liar in Chief

    We haven't been able to negotiate a single free trade agreement for a post Brexit Britain - There's a fact for you From Bloomberg The U.K. trades with dozens of countries via agreements it has through the EU. They will no longer be valid if Britain is forced to revert to World Trade Organisation rules once it leaves the bloc. U.K. exporters would be subject to tariffs. It’s a long way from the nostalgic mantras of the pro-Brexit campaign of a former imperial giant breaking out of the shackles of EU membership to strike out in the world again, and indeed assurances that rolling over third-country trade deals would be simple. Bloomberg Economics’s Dan Hanson estimates a free-trade agreement with the U.S. would make up less than 15 percent of the economic hit to Britain from a no-deal Brexit. Accords with a group of countries from the old British Empire, including Canada, would make up only about 13 percent. But if you'd like to come up with some nice rosy pro-Brexit facts I'd love to see them, but like the Brexit Unicorns we were promised, they seem to be in short supply

    I knew nothing about it so Googled Women's march and the first and two items I looked at both mentioned it - I assume they are part the MSM you and the rest of the alt right nutjobs rail about, claiming fake news when nothing of the sort exists. I'm surprised you didn't add a Brussels Broadcasting Corporation in there for good measure

    I just looked at the NY Times and USA Today coverage, of the marches and both of them mention the alleged anti-semitism, but don't let the facts get in the way of your mysogenistic rant https://eu.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2019/01/19/womens-march-back-amid-divisions-350-sister-marches-set/2623810002/ https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/19/us/womens-march-2019.html

    Define traitor ? Someone who willingly and wantonly damages the country for their own personal gain ? Rees-Mogg and the Brexiteers fit that definition far, far better than Corbyn. Don't get me wrong I despise Corbyn and all he stands for but I don't see him as a traitor in the same way I see the ERG crowd they are doing what they do for financial gain, pure and simple, Corbyns failings are all ideological.

    The thing is, it doesn't matter what Mogg does or says, May is hostage to the DUP. If they hadn't propped up her party, then the confidence vote would have been lost by one vote.

    I think she's changing tack because the "It's my deal or crashing out no deal" line isn't washing it with the remainers, so she now needs to try get the ERG lot on side with "it's my deal or there won't be an exit" to see if they are more gullible, it smacks of desperation.

    New Games

    I was given an Oculus Rift as my Xmas present - What can I say other than "Bloody Hell!" I play Frontier Elite a lot and the difference between a flat 2D world to the immersive experience experience you get with the Rift is incredible - The scale of everything is huge, planets are now massive, Stations are huge and the entrance to them now seems so big that slotting an Anaconda through them is no longer the heart stopping moment it used to be. Combat is also enhanced as you can now follow targets using your head rather than having to guess where they've gone from the scanner plots, I've not tried many standing games yet as my PC is set up in the dining room and I've not got a massive "play area" available but the one's I've tried so far are a lot of fun. The one downside, which my missus reckons is a benefit is I can't play for as long as before, it's exhausting, you are fully in the game and there's no distractions ( I can't listen to the football on the radio etc. as I could before ) and I find that can be tiring.

    A message from the Brexiteer in chief Putin says UK's Theresa May has little choice but to implement Brexit - Reuters News 20-Dec-2018 11:30:12 MOSCOW, Dec 20 (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that British Prime Minister Theresa May had little choice but to implement Brexit and steer clear of a second referendum because not doing so would undermine faith in British democracy. "In terms of Brexit, if it is carried through to the end, I can understand the prime minister's position ... There was a referendum after all. What can she do? She must enact the will of the people, expressed during the referendum." Putin, who was speaking at his annual news conference in Moscow, said Russia's own relations with Britain were deadlocked, but that Moscow was interested in restoring them from their current low and hoped common sense would prevail.
