  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    Does price philips' death simply move us all more quickly along in one future direction along with brexit and covid 19 ? With what has happened it is tempting to think what will happen over the very existance of the...
  • Commented on Official Announcement: April Fools Day is Cancelled
    #6 "...and as for the ITV networks, they got their choke-chain yanked hard by Thatcher over the "Death on the Rock" documentary decades ago: they know better than to attack the government." And it didn't stop at that documentary either....
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Hmm......first attempt at trying to privatize the NHS? https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/nhs-trade-deal-protections-sell-off-b1789867.html "Tory MPs rip out NHS protections from trade bill" ljones...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    (1382) Speaking of BoZo the times is reporting "Boris Johnson consults businesses on plan to become Europe’s Singapore". https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/boris-johnson-consults-businesses-on-plan-to-become-europes-singapore-mktg5mtx2 So I guess then the UK really is going to be a) a singapore-on-thames and b) bozo breaking his own brexit...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    CS (1230) >So, by my estimate, the real costs of getting to that age-30 milestone (got a degree, in a job, probably in a real adult relationship, got a first home) have increased by roughly 500%. > >No wonder they're...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    This made for intresting reading; https://www.politics.co.uk/comment/2020/12/29/never-ending-story-deal-unveils-next-decade-of-brexit-arguments/ Essentially then - never ending brexit. AAaaaaaaargh! ljones...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    Well, there you go now. The UK is now out of the EU as of about 37 mins ago. I still say that there's probably a ~50% chance that bozo will break his own deal so he can say he...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    The guardian summing up what is "in" the brexit deal; https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/dec/24/from-tariffs-to-visas-heres-whats-in-the-brexit-deal I read it and it already reads like a landmine. I forsee a *lot* of arguments coming forth. Not good and definately a hard brexit! ljones...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    Well .... I guess my prediction in another thread was at least 50% correct (we get a deal). The other half - bozo walks out of discussions next year - we'll have to wait and see. It is intresting to...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    Looks like there'll be a deal after all. Someone just caved; https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brexit-trade-deal-boris-johnson-eu-latest-b1778214.html "Brexit trade deal imminent, says EU diplomat Officials say talks are in ‘the end phase’ amid reports of agreement on level playing field" ljones...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    Going back to brexit -- I just saw this in the news btw; https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/dec/15/uk-drops-push-for-renationalising-of-fishing-vessels-in-brexit-talks "UK drops push for renationalising of fishing vessels in Brexit talks" I wonder .... did bozo just blink again? Maybe there's a (bad) deal coming our...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    Anyone else here a touch confused? Read today that the uk is to withdraw the clauses in the brexit bill and the taxation bill but yet I read today that the tories took a vote on that same legislation and...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    (if only there was an edit function here). What I meant by throwing his toys out of his pram is that it would happen during negociations between the UK and EU next year -- there's still a lot to discuss....
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    #152 It does indeed mean a hopeful note - as much as it can be. Bozo blinked .... our glourious and strong leader? Nope, rubber backbone! To me what that says is that he's trying to get a deal from...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    Meantime in the news (pinched from the guardian); "Brexit: Breakthrough on fishing rights as talks hang in balance". But yet... "In an unwelcome development for Boris Johnson, France and Germany have instructed the EU’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier that they...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    Hopefully no deal will not happen - and I wonder how much in the original post would happen if we do get a deal. If I had to guess one way or another right now I think we will get...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    (1466) So cummmings has gone? Wasn't expecting that one I can only think that bozo'll now be running around the place -- "Woff,woff,woff ... what do I do, what do I do?". It isn't even clear if he still wants...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    Just watching some of the start of the bbc coverage of the US election and they seem to be convinced that it is going to be a very tight vote. Trump reportedly "feels better" about winning btw. And then there's...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    (451) I managed to get my paws (just about!) on a pi 400. Have you looked at pimoroni btw? I did see that thepihut had run out although pimoroni still seemed to have a few pi 400s left. As for...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    From the guardian, "Trump plans to declare victory before election is called - reports". https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/live/2020/nov/01/us-election-2020-donald-trump-joe-biden-mike-pence-kamala-harris-coronavirus-covid-19-live-updates Wait...he's going to declare victory *before* the election? ----- (!) ljones...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    (286) "Certainly BoZo won't be PM by then, barring a miracle." Hopefully he won't be PM by that time. But I think he still will be - bozo's an egomaniac who will seek to remain in power for as long...
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    RE: 1455, 1472: Re Trump's corona infection… What concerns me more than trump's infection being "fake or not" is what people will do while trump is ill and thenafter towards the election. Remember when Bozo got ill with CV19? We...
  • Commented on Roll the dice
    Was reading this yesterday btw; https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/jun/30/us-buys-up-world-stock-of-key-covid-19-drug So if trump's bought all of the avaliable doses of remdesivir for now what happens once a vaccine becomes avaliable? Will trump claim it all and what for the rest of us? x.x ljones...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Hope I am not derailing things here but coming right back to the original post of this thread ("Cough Cough") I found this intresting piece about demonic cummings; https://consortiumnews.com/2020/06/08/letter-from-london-what-made-dominic-cummings-dash-to-durham/ Did bozo manage to sweep all of this under the carpet?...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    >I see nobody else on the Conservative government front bench. Anyone who doesn't support their mission has been relegated to the back benches already, or de-selected Don't want to blow my own trumpet here but I pretty much figured this...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    Hope this isn't too off-topic or anything. But it makes intresting reading: https://www.opendemocracy.net/en/oureconomy/neoliberalism-is-over-welcome-to-the-era-of-neo-illiberalism/ Prehaps the flaming dumpster is illibrealism? ljones...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    re:(274) I'd add one more thing - the NHS. Assuming the NHS dosen't collapse there is one thing I'm waiting to happen after covid19 is over and that is bozo telling us all a) how wonderful his govt has handled...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    So unless bozo is going to do the dirties on everyone and just try to ram through is WA in the next week, its an election. Although just like brexit it seems to be all to play for. I keep...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Um....in the meantime back to brexit. (!) Since the EU is waiting for parliament to make up its mind and parliament is now essentially in check-mate mode (both sides blame each other so nothing is moving) have the odds just...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Ah, the madness of brexit! Just what will future historians make of it all? Just some brief thoughts here though - my £1's worth (post brexit value -- about 0.00001p)..... Isn't it intresting how the ERG tories have changed their...
