  1. Nah. I just like to rip the piss out of the brexiteers and their roundly and soundly debunked "arguments" for leaving. There's an awful lot of open territory there.... "EU leaders have given Boris Johnson an ultimatum to come up with a new Brexit plan by the end of September or face up to a no deal. "The deadline, agreed at a meeting in Paris on Wednesday evening, comes as the bloc’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier told Mr Johnson to stop “pretending” to negotiate. "If the UK wants to discuss alternatives to the existing Brexit agreement then these must be presented before the end of the month. "Officials in Brussels are concerned the prime minister is wasting their time and playing out talks for as long as possible without presenting proposals – possibly with an eye on an upcoming election. "Reports suggest ideas brought to Brussels by UK negotiators have amounted to the same as the old agreement, with the section on the Irish backstop simply crossed out in the text." You heard it here first: If only I could find out if they used green crayon or not for a clean sweep....
  2. Once Johnson's 12 days are up if he fails to come up with anything new then what? No deal exit?
  3. Never mind. While UK citizens are queuing at the border controls they'll be able to compare their blue passports to help while away the time....
  4. I don't. In any event how can you possibly regain something you never lost...? As far as I can tell May's original deal is still the only one on the table. Totally immoral narcissistic serial philanderer and inveterate liar Boris Johnson PM has been given two weeks by the EU to come up with new proposals that include a backstop solution. Unfortunately for Johnson the 30th September is the eve of the tory party conference where I hope those who gave him the position of PM will realise just how bloody stupid they have been. I want to see plenty of angst. I suspect any "new" proposals will be May's original deal with the backstop crossed out with green crayon.....
  5. The "premise" that the EU should be making law for us? Well posted Woolster, you just rubbished your own "regain our sovereignty" argument! If we have yet to accept the "premise" then as you yourself have pointed out it has yet to happen! Classic! It was the picture of the EU Plank that put you off I'm sure...
  6. You have to admit the gooniform is a lot smarter than boring old DPM!
  7. Of course they do! Along with regaining the sovereignty we never lost, taking back control of our borders that we always had and being able to give an extra £350m a week to the NHS instead of letting the tories fail to fund it appropriately. Ah yes. The Forces. The glamour of the uniform. I can see the EU recruitment sergeants having no problems at all ....
  8. The "hysteria" indeed. Laughable! Next thing you'll be claiming we'll get our illusory sovereignty back when, as Gina Miller proved so successfully in the Article 50 farrago, the only organisation that can make UK law is our own sovereign parliament - NOT the executive. The other day a brexiteer mentioned the EU Army leaving me thinking if that's their best shot then they've run out of so-called arguments....
  9. Dear me. Honestly Woolster I never thought I'd see you reduced to trying to make excuses for totally amoral narcissistic serial philanderer and inveterate liar Boris Johnson. That's got to be as low as it gets....
  10. CRITICS have hit out at Luxembourg for humiliating our prime minister when its population is only six times the number of people who elected him. Boris Johnson’s non-attendance at a press conference saw Luxembourg’s Xavier Bettel aim jibes at the absent British leader even though it would take 15 per cent of his country’s pitiful population to match the votes Johnson got in this summer’s contest. A Brexiteer: “They’d be wise to show some respect for our prime minister. He enjoys the proven support of 0.14 per cent of our population, possibly even twice that. “They think they’re big and strong because they’ve got all those other countries backing them up. Well, we’ll see how big and strong they are when they’re still in the EU and we’re out on our own.”
  11. Because he took the cowards way out we'll never know....
  12. Ah yes " enjoying the benefits" - I love that bit. The Yellowhammer document, you know the one when it was leaked it was the "base case scenario" but when gov was forced to release it magically became the "worst case scenario" - isn't exactly a long document. Ergo there must be pages and pages written on how we will enjoy the benefits of brexit. So where are they?
  13. Dear me Woolster, you really should stop trying to belittle folks you know nothing about just because they don't suit your narrative. It's unseemly.... ETA: https://www.lbc.co.uk/radio/presenters/nick-ferrari/luxembourg-protester-calls-lbc-boris-johnson/ "There was no ambush. A lot of us are in our 40s and 50s, there were some youngsters, but most people were working or at schools so they couldn't attend the demonstration. There were about 50 of us, some say 75. "We were noisy. We were booing when he arrived and were calling him a liar - which we can back up on the basis of his record. "We were asked by the press to not make any noise while Mr Johnson spoke because the press wanted to hear what he had to say. We, being reasonable people who can be reasoned with, decided that was perfectly acceptable. "When he came out, we booed him. And if he took the lectern, we would have piped down. We're not hoodlums causing violent scuffles in the street. "He never took the stand, which I consider to be an act of cowardice."
  14. Well Woolster, find yourself a mirror and look at my target audience..... From a negotiating point of view totally amoral narcissistic serial philanderer and inveterate liar Boris Johnson IS the country and yes it IS all about him. It always was right from the start of the appallingly lowbrow referendum campaign and all the lies that he came out with to further his personal agenda. Hey, you don't suppose the leaders of the EU27 know what a completey and utterly untrustworthy self-centred snake-in-the-grass Johnson really is? Because that would colour any dealings they might have with him to the detriment of all of us...
  15. @woolley Oh really? Laughable! So what do you think of totally amoral narcissistic serial philanderer and inveterate liar Boris Johnson's wizard wheeze to build a bridge between Scotland and NI...? "Basket-case country" doesn't even get close....
  16. I view that as a very sad attitude. As I posted previously manx folks have a great deal of respect for the elderly. How is that "plastic" then?
  17. From the Incredible Hulk to the Incredible Sulk in just 24 hours....
  18. What about the words "national identity" and "cultural heritage" then? Incidentally I do know you have to define them and that's tricky....
  19. That's our Prime Minister. Little wonder we're now viewed as a basket-case country....
  20. I beg to differ on your "irrelevancy" statement. Incidentally, is it ok to mention the influx has pushed up house prices or will I have to go into exile?
  21. And the Brexiteer lies just keep coming. On Friday the appalling Leadsom was bleating that the Yellowhammer papers weren't worth releasing because they were out of date. Out and out lie. It's an evergreen document that's updated monthly. So they were released, with a complete chapter redacted, along with yet another blatant lie that it was stressed that they were worst case scenarios. When the papers were first leaked they were the base case scenarios. Make of that as you will. The Yellowhammer papers stressed the problems of port access being very restrictive which could lead to long delays. Farage told the BBC that it was nonsense and more "Project Fear" because he had been in business so he knew it would be fine. This is just another lie among many from Farage. The Douane have invested heavily in technology and are testing it at ports on HGV's carrying goods from the UK. I don't think they would have done that unless they strangely didn't believe Nigel Farage.... Then we reach Boris Johnson's attempts at playing Prime Minister. Johnson promised MP's he would have an alternative to the backstop by the end of this week. So he has been sent this letter: Eventually ALL the Brexiteer's lies to their electorate will catch up with them....
  22. I'm beginning to believe there's a parallel universe....
  23. A friend who lives in Braunton told me grockles are caravanners.
  24. I'm guessing you don't use pubs? Lot's of "When I's" in the south if you ever want to faint with boredom...
  25. It's not difficult to figure out you read the expression "media gatekeepers" and decided to use it on here even though It's totally meaningless when discussing Mr Cringles' popular program. I also find it amusing that the youngsters just don't understand the value of experience that can only be gained by putting the time in. A concern is that the manx have always respected the elderly for the above reason, amongst others of course. The things posted about Mr Cringle go against the grain.
