    So the UK is finished says Theresa Mayhem

    Sorry, wrong march! This one’s not disappointing at all.

    The petition has gone well over 4 million, but disappointing numbers for the start of today’s march:

    Donald Trump

    It will be very dull if it isn’t published. No further indictments looks to me like there’s nothing significant in there. A great Trump tactic to divert attention to it by crying about it for two years whilst he goes about his program. Same as the deliberately outrageous slurs on John McCain. Just a dead-cat-on-the-table tactic to divert attention from what he is actually doing.

    I think he specialises in spoons and forks. In the absence of more police it’s probably worth a go though.

    Well done Woody. Articles from The New Statesman and The Guardian. In Woodyworld aren’t they #fakenews rags? Read that Guardian one carefully, its about legal advice that prominent Leaver and champagne socialist Len McCluskey commissioned to try and show that the NHS would be privatised if TTIP was passed. My first link, posted again below was a point by point rebuff of Red Len’s UNITE legal advice. If there is something in it you think is wrong, let’s discuss it, but beware, there are many long words and no pictures. The EU is not only in a position to protect public health provision, it is required to. A weakened U.K. on its own would struggle to protect the NHS as it would not be able to dictate terms of trade with the US. Of course, the far right billionaire brexit elites of British politics can’t wait for the sell-off anyway. https://www.nhsconfed.org/-/media/Confederation/Files/public-access/European-Office/EU-Trade-Commissioners-letter-to-Unite-Secretary.pdf?la=en&hash=CC5ACA474D3E19FC6090A086F54F3B586583A228

    Au contraire Monsieur Woody, I know the EU - US deal would not have caused any problems with the UK’s NHS model. I’m going to assume here that what you are trying to say is ‘TTIP rules on government procurement being pushed by the US would have opened the UK’s health services market to private US companies.’ In which case you are, as usual, talking out of your arse. The right of a state to choose to public procurement of health services is recognised by the E.U. and was being considered at every stage of negotiation. https://www.nhsconfed.org/-/media/Confederation/Files/public-access/European-Office/EU-Trade-Commissioners-letter-to-Unite-Secretary.pdf?la=en&hash=CC5ACA474D3E19FC6090A086F54F3B586583A228 The NHS is loathed by the brexit elites because it means they have to pay higher taxes so that we all have the same access to health and don’t have to pay half of the cost to billionaire owned insurance companies. That’s why you’ve been tricked into arguing for luxurious private care for them and a swift kick in the nads for yourself.

    Pure unicornism. Look at yourself trying to argue that a market of 66 million could get a better deal than a market of 520 million if only it had the expertise. It has got the expertise - 200 civil servants who used to do this for the E.U. It’s not some sinister plot. It’s common sense. You’re pushing someone elses daft excuse for non-appearance of the unicorn - probably some tax averse toff who despises the NHS and the non billionaire class. You’re smarter than that, mate.

    Guilty of GBH, consent irrelevant

    I remember that spanner case from a diploma in law I did a couple of decades ago. It’s a fascinating question. 40 months for doing unlicensed cosmetic surgery. It all seems fine, until someone gets hurt - or gets their bell-end split down the middle, although I remember reading an article about a man who’d had that procedure done and was as happy as a dog with two dicks. There are some areas of the law which I’d rather not have to make judgements on.

    To do the things you suggest you would need sensible politicians and newspapers that put the country first. Were you thinking of another country?

    Woolley, I know you haven’t fallen for all the lies pushed on social media by the leavers, but have a look at the link below, it might (or might not) make you feel better about the E.U., unlikeable entity with crap flag and anthem as it is! https://www.derekthomas.org/news/factcheck-26-questions-eu

    Bitcoin enthusiast Dominic Frisby: Dominic was conceived in Cannes, where his parents were living to avoid tax, and schooled at St Paul’s (current boarding fees £36,399 p.a.). Here he is sticking to the elite: https://youtu.be/tT7m7D2nqmQ

    Poor Sir Nigel. The leader of his new brexiter party’s only turned out to be another bloody Nazi. He must curse his luck.

    There are two rival marches at the weekend: The remain one will be in London. Local support groups to help with transport. The march Sir Nigel abandoned to simpletons will probably be happening along a coastal footpath in Lincolnshire somewhere. It doesn’t arrive in London until a week on Friday (goodness knows why they picked that day). It does cost £50, but that might just get you a discount on a photo with the frogman- he won’t be marching himself, bone spurs don’t you know.

    Ah, I see what the problem is now. You’ve confused a Belgian MEP (a Spinelli Group - pro federalism supporter) who represents the European Parliament in Brexit discussions with some sort of dictator that can overrule the Comission and member state vetoes. Is he Stalin in your EUSSR nightmares?
