    No, you are. If you can't appreciate the difference, then that is your problem. And as it states in your signature, there is no cure....

    BBC News will be having Zandra Rhodes on for a chat. Apparently never mentioned on the forum, 78 you know.
  6. Oh, Labour have ruled out a second Scottish Indy Ref. Yorkshireman Richard Leonard, Corbyn's placeman, has quite clearly said so. Corbyn has been a little more careful with his words, but it is also quite clear he'll do a "Thatcher in opposition" and deny Scots a say once in power - after all, who would want to be independent once you have a beneficent Labour Party in power? (This is heavy sarcasm, in case you don't get it). Labour's woes in Middle England don't bother me much. The disaster they were in Scotland has been their downfall here - the party of hospital closures, paid for prescriptions, introduction of tuition fees, retaining nuclear weapons on the Clyde, I could go on. That was of course when they were Red Tories - something to which Chuka and his cronies still adhere. Like the Tories getting back into power (albeit in coalition, then with small majority, then in minority), a generation forget just how bad these two parties are for ordinary people. Here's the latest. Amber Rudd has just dipped into workers' pockets for a compulsory rise in pension contributions. You think that's to ensure people have a decent pension when they retire? Not a bit of it. It's to prop up the insurance businesses of their cronies and nothing is in place to stop these companies going bankrupt before you get a sniff of your pension (assuming you don't die before you ever collect it).

    Could have quoted me and posted the obit. But no, my post was up for at least 25 minutes (before I went off to do some gaming), then CL posts it as new news. Oh yes, perfectly need for that. CL is a recalcitrant non-searcher.

    By-Election Bingo 2017-22

    This all assumes a by-election happens. If Tezza calls a general election to exploit Labour's perceived weakness, does that nullify the points?

    The 2019 Deathlist Cup

    Well, Gary, the teams are taking the field for the second half. Still time for some of those lost causes to re-balance the scores, David. Jesus, Jeff, the oldlady just scored before the farmer of worms' team took the field! Referee has allowed it! *settles back to watch the carnage*

  24. With campaigns for both sides having started up, thought I'd open a thread for discussion of the UK's upcoming referendum to remain or leave the European Union. In the words of The Buzzcocks Clash, should we stay or should we go? Are you in a quandary to vote in favour of staying, even if that means siding with Tony Blair and David Cameron? Will Caroline Lucas' decision to vote for staying hurt any re-election chances she may have even if she is on the winning side? (See Labour in Scotland). Would we be better off leaving? What happens if the constituent parts of the UK vote differently? What interventions can we expect from the international community? So many questions distilled down to "Leave" or "Remain". Bound to be quite a few personalities involved and no doubt some social media abuse hurled about - like the Isle of Man flag, this thread has legs. Let's fire the starting pistol.
