  1. Ah yes ! The old tell everyone it was me so I can take the credit gambit “I give President Trump huge credit for bringing about the inter-Korean talks, and I’d like to thank him for that,” Moon said at a New Year’s news conference in Seoul. It turned out that Trump had asked Moon to credit him publicly for creating the environment for the talks, people familiar with the conversation told The Washington Post at the time.
  2. Care to enlighten us how the orange f*kwit has brought about world peace ? Others think differently to his outrageous claims that it was him - all him! "Remember presidential candidate Donald Trump’s secret plan to defeat the Islamic State? And his boast that he knew more than the generals did about the Islamic State (thus implying he’d replace them once in office)? More campaign rhetoric crashing on the rocks of reality: The Trump administration just endorsed the core elements of former President Barack Obama’s counter-Islamic State plan, and Trump has decided that Obama’s generals weren’t so bad, either." Claim: Donald Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in agree the US President deserves credit for peace talks with North Korea.   Verdict: Only the historical record will reveal what influenced these talks, but evidence suggests it was the South Koreans who encouraged dialogue with the North, along with pressure from Chinese enforced sanctions.

    Of course it is - You don't have to take the cheapest quote when tendered - It's all about best value otherwise you'd end up with nothing but the cheapest garbage offered - The myth that the EU prevents us picking local services is exactly that, a myth.

    I've never understood why it's seen to be good for Government to outsource services offshore. Yes the headline cost is less than if a home based company wins the bid, but this doesn't include the loss of tax revenue. A private company doesn't care about this, for them the bottom line is the bottom line but for a public department funded out of taxes, then surely the tax hit must be considered in the overall cost. So any bid by a local company should have, at least, an inbuilt 15% advantage over any foreign competitor to take into account the lost tax revenue, or the country is being sold short.
  6. Have a look on http://ridewithgps.com You should be able to find a few routes near you - Also seriously think about joining a club - It's the best thing I ever did, it allows me to ride with people who are at the same level as me on much longer rides than I ever would if I was out by myself. My club, Penge, has 7 rides ranging from 25 miles @ 10mph up to 55@17mph every Sunday plus we do extended rides for Audax and Sportive training as required

    And the latest news is that the EU is growing at it's fastest rate for 10 years, the GDP growth is at 2.8% for the 28 countries, given that we are growing at 1.6% and are a significant portion of the overall total then the growth rate of the remaining 27 countries must be significantly higher - Thank God we will no longer be shackled to this failing enterprise. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-43055887

    Ah, so their forecasted recession never happened in one report, therefor all reports are wrong. The recession may not have happened but that is down to the global economic recovery which resulted in the EU economies steam on ahead of the UK. And the UK going from the best performing economy in the G7, pre-Brexit vote to the worst. If this recovery hadn't happened the UK economy would have been pushed into recession.

    Well - You could always show us the Government report that forecasts an increase in GDP post Brexit - There must be one, surely? Or is it that there haven't been any reports apart from the leaked one last week because all forecasts are pointing out that at best GDP will be down 2% for Brexit lite and 8% down for the swivel eyed version of it and May and her cronies are supressing them to prevent the bad news getting out ?

    Yep - Essentially it says that NI remains aligned with the single market and a member of the customs union, and with no border between NI and the mainland then we also remain in the single market and in the customs union, and even better than this it also states if negotiations fail then we remain a member of the single market and customs union - What exactly were the leavers voting for ???? https://ec.europa.eu/commission/sites/beta-political/files/joint_report.pdf - Outlined in paragraphs 49 and 50 It's an absolute farce
  12. Not only that, but the closure of Remploy, a system that allowed the dignity of work to disabled people, was a disgrace. - It was a major welfare-to-work provider, delivering a range of contracts and employment programmes, for people with substantial barriers to work. Between 2009 and 2014, it found 100,000 jobs for disabled people.

    Your posts regarding same sex marriage and the hordes of eastern Europeans criminals, terrorizing little old ladies pretty much shows that you don't like gays or foreigners.

    And that's why you are blinkered by your racist and homophobic views, you are unwilling to look at any information that counters that viewpoint

    You think that that site is run by laywers ? Looks to me like a single issue sounding board run by UKIP whereas Full Fact is Independent and Impartial - "We don't take sides in any debate and don't support any political party or campaign. We've been quoted by politicians on all sides and corrected people on all sides. We have a cross-party Board of Trustees and safeguards in place at every level of our organisation to ensure our neutrality."
