    Scottish Parliament Rejects EU Withdrawal Bill

    Ireland doesn’t recognise the UK’s claim over Rockall, but has never claimed ownership for itself. Since 1972 Rockall has been incorporated as part of Scotland. You must have been listening to the Wolfetones.

    Trump gives Jerusalem away

    Hamas are a symptom of the oppression of Palestinians. In an extreme situation, like the one in Gaza, it’s pretty much unheard of for the subjugated population to vote for moderate conservatives, liberal or social democrats. It’s almost inevitable that extremists like Hamas rise to the top in such situations. Having said that, Hamas are evil, and their ideology and behaviour gives Israel the perfect excuse to ignore international resolutions and opinion.

    You’ve read Woodyfacts and Quilp, and you think this is an intelligent forum?

    Where did you get that info from? (I don’t doubt it, by the way. My views on Hamas are pretty close to Rog’s views on muslims in general.)

    What’s a long established trend for you Woolley? Ten years? Fifteen years? The Republic of Ireland has had a higher per capita income than the UK every year since 2001. In other words, every year but the first four since the GFA. The most recent World Bank figures give a gdp per capita for the U.K. of US$39,000 and for the Republic of Ireland it’s US$61,000. In Northern Ireland its US$29,000. Of course, most of the wealth is in Dublin, and living costs in Dublin are significantly more expensive than in the north, so differences in disposable income are less dramatic. I know it’s hard to believe, seeing as its not so many generations ago that Ireland was being starved to death under the British. That can never happen again because Irish companies own more than 1,200 U.K. businesses with a turnover of £32B (2015 figures), - bigger investors in the U.K. than Japan! They also own significant amounts of key real estate in the U.K., which is why, in the event of economic troubles the U.K. hasn’t much choice but to bail out Irish lenders first - or suffer a catastrophic collapse in its own property values.

    There are only two majority unionist counties left - Antrim and Down. Belfast itself elects Sinn Féin mayors. Northern Ireland has a basket-case economy and both sides are determined to keep it that way for now - the DUP because they are corrupt, have made careers out of sponging and know no other way, SF and the SDLP because they are enjoying taking the piss out the U.K. taxpayer and taking revenge on the U.K. by being the most expensive and awkward problem they can be for the Brits for as long as possible. If there’s any kind of hard border, It’ll probably be the younger generation of loyalists who push for re-unification first - knowing that in joining the Republic they’ll be joining a country with almost double their current per capita income.

    Two ‘dupicate’ replies and when you finally calm down enough to hit the right keys you start with ‘Dear, oh dear’ and end with ‘Per-lease’. Congratulations, you are the king of gammon, the reddest of the red whine, the cutest QT extra.

    Scottish Parliament Rejects EU Withdrawal Bill

    Yeah. Over to you oh wise one, let’s hear all about your unicorn, (let me guess - the EU realise their weak hand and give Davis everything he promised, Boris magics up the ‘electronic border’, Donald Trump signs a free-trade deal including financial services and exemptions for U.K. steel, manufacturing and agriculture, the tories stop fighting and NI and Scotland realise the gammon were right all along. So much funnier the way you word it though.)

    So the UK is finished says Theresa Mayhem

    Where have you been Woolley? Leaver loons call Remain backers ‘snowflakes’, Remainers call your lot ‘gammon’ / ‘the red whine’ / ‘QT (Question Time) extras’ / ‘unicornists’ / ‘breakshitters’ etc. ‘Gammon’ / ‘gammon tendency’ are terms first coined by Dickens for nationalists with unhealthy complexions, tempers and lifestyle choices.

    Next? Well, watch your blood pressure now, because that’s NI and Scotland leaving the U.K. of course. After that it’s Gibraltar, the Channel Islands and us. Then it’s London, Wales and the North East getting their special dispensations, then it’s getting shafted in international trade followed by begging to rejoin on any terms. That’s if Brexit ever happens. That requires May’s team to first agree on what kind of unicorn it wants, and then sell the donkey they actually get to Parliament. Want a pineapple ring with that?

    What’s the point of joining a thread full of loons and then putting the gammon on ignore?

    Paris knife attack

    If you are an atheist, but you do attend synagogue (shul), then your ‘tradition’ is hypocrisy. (However, I suspect you are religious, which is why you can’t type ‘god’, think ritual slaughter without stunning is just fine, hate other religions with the zeal of a true believer and insist whatever non-consensual genital mutilation it is rabbis perform isn’t a heinous crime.) If you don’t attend synagogue then whatever nickname you would go by there, if you were to attend, is of no consequence. I could just as easily say they call me ‘chorizo eating infidel goyim scum’ or whatever at ’shul’, but because I never go it doesn’t mean anything.

    Which is never then. May as well have said your name is Hiawatha when you’re in the sweat-lodge.
  17. Your words say more about you than the people you disparage. Time and again you show yourself for what you are. Get a life.
  18. But of course, you’re not racist.

    Brexit Is Reversible...

    I don’t do simple, and I don’t do ideological. I do correct, as I see it. I don’t disagree with Rog, or even Woody, on every point of every argument.

    Does that apply to agriculture, fisheries, banking, nuclear power, renewable energy and rail companies too? Is it just direct subsidies you want banned? How about business friendly road and port infrastructure projects, export credit guarantees, sweetners, tax breaks, strategic government procurement, lobbying overseas and embassy promotions, government sponsored training schemes, exemption from fuel duty (like the airlines get), etc.? British manufacturing died for a number of reasons - poor management, high labour costs, militant unions, poor innovation, an unsympathetic government and a very weak trading position. Things improved when Reagan reduced US tarrifs, and of course membership of the EU and investment from Japan saw manufacturing return somewhat. The miners were served badly by a hostile ideological government in thrall to nuclear power, a collapse of British manufacturing and stupid ideological union leadership. I’m no pretending that propping up mining would have made economic sense, and it’s hard to think that you are even more ignorant than you’ve proved yourself already, but if you think any large scale enterprise can survive in s global market without government help then you just don’t understand the reality of the world you live in.

    You’re even more aggressive and foul-tempered than usual today Rog. Trouble with the bag?

    I was quoting the Board of Deputies of British Jews. Just to be clear that your views don’t represent the opinions of most British Jews.

    It’s just one more kick in the ‘nads we gotta take to be free of the ‘EUSSR’ before we all get sent to Rog’s fantasy gulag.
