The Eu

Ah yes, but the damp rag from Brussels isn't bright enough to work out how to cut off his funding of Ukip - funding which is likely to see a rather large boost quite soon! :)

But it's only what all power-blocks (and parasites) do! Their primary purpose is to ensure their own existence if not growth. Of course that requires the continued existence of the host, but the hosts actual well-being comes well down the priority list! So, logically, it's only ever worth fully supporting organisations who's avowed and sustained aim is to put themselves out of jobs.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.

      Rather than the little local difficulty we've been fed by the media it rather looks like the second spanish civil war is about to break out.  A complete mishandling of the matter by Madrid being the major factor.  What we are seeing in Spain is what we've always been careful to avoid in the UK.  It's also what could easily have happened if there had been an EU-style attempt to ignore or overturn the referendum result.
      The Catalans seem to be going about it in the right way in launching their own currency.  If only the Greeks had had this much sense, or at least the sense to ignore the ECB and let the printing presses run whilst they still had the ability.  Spain's plot to use Brexit to enslave the Gibraltarians is now looking like a silly joke, as yet another plank of the remainer case (the allegedly sensitive Gibraltar issue) is kicked away.
      Will the Basques seize this opportunity, or will the EU's mounting problems surface somewhere else first?  The Leave campaign said we needed to be clear of the EU as soon as possible to avoid getting dragged into the looming mess with British forces becoming involved - we are not clear yet!

      Well, he's the closest thing to Max Headroom to grace our screens for a while, but here's a hilarious example of a genuine EU bot at work (len Eldritch simply thinks he is being EU trolled):
      More work needed on the code I think.  Yes, this is how a sizeable chunk of our EU contributions are being spent, and where money they blackmail May into handing over will find its way toward!   Please remember this when a politico tells you there is no money for something important in our own community.
      There's a recent Guardian article about social media bots here.

      ...your "State of the Union" (now where have we heard that one before?) speech has gone down amazingly well in the UK.  It confirms everything the Leave campaign said about where the EU was surely headed.  I've now lost count of the number of if-only-we-had-known newspaper articles, and forum posts from people who voted Remain.  You've provided them with a admirable rationalisation for their change of mind.
      There never was a "Remain" status quo to vote for, as it was always your way or no way!  I suspect ever-increasing numbers of our continental cousins will be telling you "no way!" from now on.  The reactions to TM's speech in Florence on 22nd September are going to be... er.. interesting!

      Yes, another of the flagship promises to the gullible has bitten the dust.  What they were told would happen is now happening with a vengeance.

      Now that the honeymoon period is over mobile charges are shooting up to compensate for the loss of revenue, so the only people to now benefit are a highly select number of highly mobile people, and you can guess what social group they are over represented in.
      Personally I've seen my monthly PAYG charges bumped on both my continental SIMs.  But it's worse: you used to be able to buy a SIM card without a costly monthly contract, but when I walked into a phone shop recently expecting to be able to buy one for occasional calls on a new smartwatch, I was practically told to take a walk.  that's despite having all the necessary documents, ID cards, and tax certificates that continental bureaucracy require.  I eventually acquired one by reading loads of foreign smallprint on a double up scheme. This involved several trips to two shops, and an over the counter confrontation which involved calls to the network for permission - in fact the card was practically thrown at me.  It's still not enabled though!
      You can't believe a word of EU propaganda, and in particular you can't believe a word of what is appearing in the EU compliant continental press. People have been led to believe that the UK is in total crisis, and Brits are deeply regretting their mistake.  This really is Orwellian in its implications.
