  1. The thing I'm most looking forward to when Scotland leaves is Arlene Foster, born and bred in Ireland, insisting she is not Irish, but English and Welsh.
  2. Yes, that required an £80M bung to Nissan to enable them to use batteries made in Britain by Chinese company Envision. It's not a massive bung, and they would probably have got it anyway. But it isn't a win. It's an 'as was'. What about the rest of manufacturing?
  3. An inquiry would uncover criminal behaviour that would have to be prosecuted. I'd like to think the British have done immunity deals with the loyalists and the handlers involved in the collusion for the sake of peace, and I suppose we have to be ok with that.
  4. Those Italian Prosecco makers and German car companies are leaving it a bit late aren't they?
  5. How do you know that Juan? I'll agree that police forces in the US are militarised and that the US generally has become even more violent since its invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan. I'm not sure there are any statistics to support the notion that black people are killed by the police in disproportionate numbers, although the US does have really serious problems with race relations, not helped by a viciously polarising political system. It seems in this case that a man fell asleep in his car in a queue at a drive-thru fast food place. If that had happened here I would imagine he would have been woken up by an employee of the restaurant. In Atlanta it turned into a deadly confrontation followed by a riot. I don't doubt that there are racist cops, but stating that this was a race crime from the outset is not a rational response. Back to Manx Radio: I never agree much with Stu Peters on anything, but his job was never to uphold whatever the current zeitgeist is. Rather, it was to challenge people to present their arguments coherently. In this atmosphere of cultural revolution, which I support, I don't think being asked to explain your rationale is something to be denounced.
  6. You have to write to George Soros. He pays you a handsome salary and covers any legal fees incurred. Nice work if you can get it. I'm sure Rog, or Woolley know more.
  7. The Cummings fiasco is a classic dead cat designed to cover up 3 huge moves last week that will profoundly change the UK for decades to come. 1. Customs checkpoints are to be built at Larne, Belfast and Warrenpoint - the border controls between NI and the rest of the UK the brexiters promised would never exist. From now on NI voters will have absolutely no political representation when it comes to the setting of the rules of the market they will be part of. 2. Under emergency legislation the government has committed to bailing out and subsidising large corporations to the tune of £100B. Very few details of any quid pro quos, or who, how or why each company is to be awarded the cash are available. 3. To enable a trade deal with the US the government defeated an attempt to maintain British food standards for imports. UK farmers (not NI obviously) will be switching to US farming practices too. 50% of the UK chicken market is now US owned, so there'll be no holding back. The £3.5B subsidy farming got under the EU system that the brexiters promised would be maintained until 2025 has been cut to £25B, and with the standards protection voted away with a 51 vote margin, British farming as we know it has been voted into history. So, stay angry about Cummings breaking lockdown - even the Telegraph, Times and Spectator are onboard with that manufactured outrage - and just ignore the broken brexit 'red line' to keep free trade between NI and the rest of the UK, the coroprate-socialist smash and grab and the broken promises to maintain food standards and protect British farming.
  8. Breaking the rules and getting caught wasn't too bright. What makes you think he is clever?
  9. I was no fan of Corbyn, but with hindsight, nevermind what he promised for the NHS - his highspeed broadband for all policy would have been pretty good in a lockdown situation.
  10. When you say "our 'leaders'", do you mean you think that people like Howard Quayle and Boris Johnson oversee YouTube content? I'd guess most people already know who David Icke is. When I was a kid, before the internet, eccentric elderly people would sometimes spout words of wisdom from 'Old Moore's Almanac'. David Icke is just a bit further down the scale of unscientific made-up lunacy that people pay good money to consult. Its all fun and all, but when you start endangering your gullible followers, you have to be shut down.
  11. EU has morphed from a trade group to superstate rumours turn out to completely false non-news.
  12. Where's Sir Nige / Woody2? Still not been heard of since he took that shipment from Italy. I'm getting worried, the poor guy was addicted to trumpist sites like Guido. Starting to think that with him the facist propaganda has reached its inevitable conclusion already.
  13. There's no need to ever mention that scumbag or the malicious rag he lied for.
  14. So there is. In which case; Fillipo, if you don't like it, there's a boat in the morning.
  15. The worst thing about lockdown is not being able to inform the like of Filippo that there is a passenger vessel departing on the morrow.
  16. That's 'Project Fear Mark 2' PK. Criticism of these incompetents is 'talking Britain down'. it must be the fault of Westminster Eurocrats. Just stepped in to cover for Woolley there.
  17. Cue Woolley with an ‘apolitic’ robust defence of de Pfeffer.
  18. Quilp, that is the funniest thing I’ve seen all day. Thanks.
  19. Where’s Banks? Tice? Mogg? François? Farage? Martin? Hargreaves? Ratcliffe? The Barclays? Mellon? Dyson? You’d expect these very wealthy flag wavers to step up and volumteer in a national crisis. How many brexiters have? Only asking, because the red of face seem mostly absent from this fight. Well except for blaming problems on foreign countries and complaining about the pubs being shut.
  20. The U.K. has two problems with securing PPE and ventilators: 1. The same pathetic Europhobia behind brexit: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8215383/amp/Desperate-hospitals-forced-crowdfund-vital-PPE-equipment.html 2. Too many of the super wealthy (eg; Mogg, Duncan-Smith, Tice, Martin) who are all flags and patriotism when it means they get to shelter their fortunes from tax, but when the chips are down they’re looking after number one - unlike, say Connor McGregor: https://www.bloodyelbow.com/2020/4/13/21219958/conor-mcgregor-delivers-1-million-euro-donation-ppe-supplies-masks-ireland-hospitals-ufc-news
  21. Rent-a-gob. Couldn’t care less about anything but his own fortune.
  22. Bad news about the Brit built Blue-Sky ventilators that are no use for Covid19. So thankful that the EU are going to donate PPE after the Eng-Nats refused three times to join in with an EU wide 1.5B bulk purchase. If there was such a thing as karma in this world Sir Nige and Fatty François would be drafted as key workers and not given a glove.
