  1. https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/226071 I disagree with the "not legally binding" bit (because there is a load of historic and constitutional evidence to indicate it is binding) but that's a mere detail.

    1961 Pre EU Brexit

    Yes, my kind of thing Maggie. Post the lot please. People have forgotten what a brilliant idea EFTA was, and that it actually worked well for small business, and was entirely free of political BS. I wondered why we started it then abandoned our friends in it in the early 1970's. The true reasons are now very clear. It's doubtful you'll find this info anywhere else, as it's politically inconvenient to our politicians and big business lobby groups.

    Arron Banks - what really happened!

    Well, I think you've answered your own question - it's not going to happen, mostly! The problems farmers have were there well before Brexit, and we need a government that will encourage robotics and innovation, as well as operating a fair work visa system that's not politicised. Government no longer has any excuses that they can't do this or that because of Brussels, so we are entering an interesting political era - one that establishment politicos don't seem to like. Anyone who lived through the immediate post war era, and met Poles who came to the UK during wartime has the greatest respect for their work ethic, and indeed loyalty to our country through the war and beyond. On the other side of the coin, it's always very easy to attack others for being lazy, and that's exactly what the EUphiles in Germany are saying about ALL Italians, and their refusal to become good little Germans. In order to preserve their crumbing political project they're sowing the very division they claim it's working to eliminate. "Knuckleheads" are everywhere, particularly in the universities; so don't be too hard on the poorer less educated ones locally!

    Arron Banks - what really happened!

    A "whole wedge" of voters frequently do the right thing for the wrong reason, and a "whole wedge" do the wrong thing for the right reason. Over time this tends to balance out and we are left with a democracy that everyone respects the result of - or that used to be the case before Tony Blair. I think you'll be really struggling to find any politician of note on the Leave side who ever claimed anyone was going anywhere. On the Remain side you'll find lots that perpetrated the lie that Brits living in the EU would be going home en masse. The Remain side also perpetrated the lies that we'd starve because Poles wouldn't be able to work on low income jobs, and that produce would go bad in the fields, plus of course the NHS would come to a halt because of lack of skilled EU medical staff. The irrefutable logic that once we had recovered sovereignty such a thing could only be self inflicted never deserved mention. In other words the going home myth suited the Remain campaign admirably, else they'd have pointed out the obvious absurdity. The Leave side was left deliberately disorganised by our distinctly EUphile Electoral Commission (packed out with Blairites) - which actually picked the campaign they thought they'd do best against. That that campaign didn't make too many fluffs, and got it mostly right is an indication of the strength of the underlying case, and not any indication of what would have happened if there had been a level playing field.

    Shame on you Ian Lavery!!

    ..for voting for the House of Lords amendment to undermine your own country in our EU negotiations! The Labour MP's who did the decent thing and took this out of politics were: Kate Hoey, John Mann, Graham Stringer, Frank Field and Ronnie Campbell So pitifully few from a party that once supported the British working man, and loyalty to the nation above all! The traitors on the Tory side you can probably guess: Ken Clarke, and crazy Anna Soubry. Both will be history come the next election, and they'll likely collect their thirty pieces of silver from some EU related slush fund. People have longer memories than you now suppose Mr Lavery!

    Arron Banks - what really happened!

    That's because the lies of Project Fear have been made thoroughly obvious to all. The latest one to go down in flames was the supposed broken undertaking (from people who everyone was aware weren't in a position to do this) to fund the NHS with the Brexit dividend. Can you remember mad Vince Cable's sneers about this when he knew full well that it would be a good while before there was any dividend? NHS to get £384m extra a week, as Theresa May locks Britain into leaving EU Oh, and all those European health workers that were going to go home and so cripple the NHS? ...well the most up to date figures show that there's now a record number of them! But hey, we are heading for three million unemployed because of all Clegg's jobs that depended on our EU membership (you do remember Nick, don't you?), so we shouldn't be so complacent! The Second Peasants Revolt rolls on regardless, and it's spilling over into Germany right now. That's because there are a reported 80,000 so called "refugees" currently gathered near the Austrian border that the BBC guardianistas don't think anyone needs to know about! Merkel's head next!
  7. A little perplexed by the BBC's "balanced reporting"? The Telegraph reports what actually happened when the guardians of our democracy had yet another go at someone who certainly isn't playing their establishment game. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/06/12/brexit-bulletin-bad-boy-arron-banks-lashes-remainer-mps

    Monday 28th May, 2018 Why are people who advocate respecting animal rights utterly disrespectful of all other rights?

    In an ideal world: Jeremy Corbyn would be our conscience, and Donald Trump would be our provider. In the real world: they both demand to be both!

    In an ideal world: we'd all live forever, and the Earth's population would now be approaching one hundred billion. Therefore.. oh!
  11. Those sites that TRY to prevent you highlighting and right clicking to abstract text can be very annoying. That's particularly so if all you are trying to copy is your own text. Unfortunately the message hasn't got through to webmasters that nothing whatsoever can prevent web pages being copied or saved, because that's totally antithetical to the nature of the web. All this kind of nonsense does is inconvenience and annoy honest people who visit your site. One particular shopping site has been bugging me for years, so a while back I added a link to the browser settings page to turn off javascript whilst I did the copy. The problem with this is that their javascript heavy site then becomes almost unusable. This irked me so much that I just looked at alternatives that don't involve tediously looking through the page source code for my own text. Well... actually... it turns out ultra-simple to bypass the javascript which prevents highlighting and then copy. I'm using Chrome but the same must be true of practically all browsers: simply CTRL+P for print page, and select the text you want to copy from the print preview. Simples, and ya boo to you a?????????.com!

    Firewall switched off to access this site

    My advice - which will be echoed by millions of others - is to remove McAfee in its entirety and install something like Avast (free edition). Life can be challenging enough without McAfee! What exactly does she mean by "get on"? Does she mean she can't view all pages (or certain pages); does she mean that she can't sign in, or can't upload pictures? Chrome is currently experiencing major problems with the latest Windows 10 update, so try another browser. I'm presently having problems on some newspaper sites when using Chrome. https://www.zdnet.com/article/windows-10-april-2018-update-problems-microsoft-working-on-fix-for-chrome-issues/

    Problems with webcam?

    It's a router problem and on Andy's near horizon schedule. It's causing other problems apart from the webcam here.

    Ukip Local Election Manifesto 2018

    You agreed with me about the HoL too! Combating extremism is always a problem; but you can't combat it with oppositely polarised extremism, which seems to be the current (PC) wisdom.
