There will have been 2 million aboard the Empire Windrush by the time we've finished.

Rather too true to be really funny.  Grenfell Tower is proving to be a perfect example of this.

Not sure about saved GB but they made a huge contribution to it's recovery, worked hard, paid their way, and many took on jobs the indigenous population wouldn't do.   To see them now being treat

Self-righteous, smug and self-regarding individuals who instinctively see themselves as something they're not. Champagne socialists, preening liberals full of virtuous outpouring. People who see thems

Blair have believed his own sh*t, though there obviously was a great deal that he can't have believed because he was an inveterate liar, but nonetheless he set a new low from which all others have to

My point was not directed towards you. You have said many times that you basically believe in 1960s/70s style protectionism and the modern equivalent of capital controls - rather than free and open trade.

But anyone who essentially believes in what Mrs Thatcher and Keith Joseph claimed to be about should shudder at the continued existence, 40 years later, of immigration and labour controls. Immigration and labour controls create artificial costs and inhibit innovation which is the driving force of the supply side model

I can understand why socialists would support border controls - they believe in top down solutions. But anyone advocating a free trade Brexit must surely understand that the free movement of capital and the free movement of labour are indivisible. 

Nations work and build national wealth. It is glaringly obvious that this wealth should be retained for the benefit of the people who have created his wealth for their own benefit, not allow all and sundry to just stroll in and help themselves WHICH IS PRECIS WHAT HAS AND IS CONTINUING TO TAKE PLACE.

This MUST be stopped and REVERSED.

Nope. Mostly, people have been strolling in, finding jobs and working very hard - and have been vilified for it by bigots. Your attitude illustrates the old (Manx) saying - ‘the come-over who got here at lunchtime despises the come-over who arrived this evening’.

Keep up mojo - when Woody gives you a dead cert, you check the odds and bet against. It’s an old trick I first heard of from Fleet St journos who used to read Rees-Mogg’s old man’s columns for reverse tips. I’ve never met anyone who can accurately predict the future, but to a betting man someone like Woody, who is always wrong about everything, is worth his weight in gold.

Eh, that makes no sense as Woody had clearly proven it was a Trotsky conspiracy and she knew nothing about any of it. 

it makes perfect sense :rolleyes: when a letter between the hs and the pm is leaked who else would do that but labour union staff....

as leaking documents is a matter of national security all the guardians staff should be locked up pending an enquiry....

What about the newsagents selling the guardian and paperboys delivering them, they must be responsible too. Lock them up, lock them up......
