      no one knows what trade talks will bring about, and this coming from a man (and the errr f*cking Guardian)who was essentially pushed out by Trump. Sour grapes comes to mind?

      My apologies. I'm sure Mr "AMERICA FIRST" who seems to love trade wars more than Henry Kissinger loves actual wars, will give us an excellent deal

      There was a very interesting article about Trumps mentality before he became President, and it's been borne out by his actions since.

      Basically, Trump doesn't understand a win-win negotiation.
      In order for his side to win, he thinks the other side has to lose.
      Of course there's also his narcisism, which means he takes delight in others losing when he wins.

      Anyone thinking he'll be fair is a loon.

      Can you refer me to that post I made, I am well aware of the horrible lies that the Sun told about Hillsborough and condemn them every bit as much as you do, but does it not register with you that not all people are aware of those facts, you do grasp that not all fans of LFC live in Liverpool or even in England yes?

      Condemn, CONDEMN!! I f**king hate the bas**rds and want them out of business. And love nothing more than seeing travelling reds torching stackfuls of copies of the rag at service stations on awaydays. Reminds how a lot of areas of Liverpool did the same on Tuesday April 18 1989.

      I bet you are one of those tw*ts who mocks Man Utd about plane crashes as well, shame on you!

      Funny how you quickly know about that but need educating on Hillsborough. Your mask is slipping!!

      Quote from stuey
      I remind you it was a referendum and Labour in dithering and implying there would be a 2nd referendum lost the election, the Tories did a U-turn and followed the wishes of the electorate, in spite of employing a f**king idiot eventually to get us out of the EU.
      Any other decision but Leave in light of the referendum result is undemocratic and a vote loser as events have shown.

      Why have a referendum if it is as you imply, of no consequence?

      Because it was not binding, nor was it necessarily the final say either. Other countries have rerun EU referendums in the past, and you don't have to look very far to find them. It's nothing new.

      Scotland and NI voted to stay in, and local parties who refused to honour that vote saw their vote collapse at the last election. It was a Brexit election, and for reasons best known to himself, the weak Labour leader didn't understand that. His time as Labour leader has been a conveyor belt of talk and losing elections.

      Quote from heimdall
      oh no the horror, BBC employees losing their jobs, have you got any idea of the inefficiency and waste of money in that organisation, which is odd for a something state run!!

      BTW totally agree about House of Lords, it should be abolished and replaced with an elected senate, which I think may well happen fairly soon.

      Regarding the EU yes the MEP's are elected but who elects the presidents, why not the people now that they are becoming more and more powerful with every new EU treaty that comes along.

      The House Of Lords is the final say. After them it's the Head Of State to sign the bills they pass. None of them are elected, but it will never be abolished.

      The EU Council Presidents are elected by the national heads of state, who in turn are the representatives of the people. The EU Commission President is nominated by the MEP's of the party with the most seats won in the last EU election, usually the EPP.

      You can discuss how efficient or not the BBC is somewhere else. The most relevant point here is that 450 people have lost their jobs from a state run broadcaster, just as the divorce agreement takes effect. I'm sure the majority were talented, qualified people who have done nothing wrong. But the land of milk and honey they were all promised if the nation voted for Brexit, has turned out to be a New Year Nightmare for them.

      Didn't embarrass me in the slightest, didn't know you were so easily offended.


      Who said I was offended, I just think he's a duplicitious tw*t in it for the money, probably to with the money he lost when the pound was devalued in 1992 which probably cost and he's always hated Europe since the Maastricht Treaty was signed and he fu**ed off the Tory Party.

      ??? Yes I support the man who apologised for doing that, several times. Not sure how that equates to wishing someone dead though, but you socialists are so filled with compassion and understanding, LOL

      Says you laughing at people losing their jobs at the BBC. You're like a f**king blueshite crank who doesn't get irony. Compassion and understanding my f**king arse.

      Had three of my mates lose their jobs today.

      Their work has been transferred to France & Poland. Still going to be selling here, but all the clerical parts of the financial and customer services where they work have gone.

      Told exactly why.

      The Sh*t Show that is Brexit.

      My company moved a lot of the clerical work straight after the vote. We've already been told that the increased paperwork that will be needed for the import/export side of our business will be dealt with on mainland Europe and jobs will probably go as it gets implemented.

      and is it grown up for the EU to ban flags? Farage and the Brexit party MEP's waving those flags was perfect FU to the EU

      If that's the type of childish behaviour you expect and praise from elected representatives it says as much about you as them mate.

      Me, I'd much rather they act their age and appreciate the magnitude of what's about to happen, for the good or bad.

      It’s almost as bad as wearing t shirts with b*llocks to Brexit on them, let’s keep things even  :f_whistle:



      Or trying to burn EU flags, only to find them flame resistant.

      What answer? You said the lord’s have the final say but you obviously didn’t know what you were talking about. You also said that the EU commission elect the president? I state AGAIN van der Leyen wasn’t even on the ballot box. I await your answers to those two questions.



      And when did you vote for Boris as Prime Minister?

      It's just a stupid and irrelevant as the questions you're posing.

      I’m sure Lfc across the water can speak for himself, although he seems to be hiding from the questions posed? Do you think he is correct?


      I think stupid and irrelevant kind of covered my thoughts.

      The rest of it is what I like to call arseholes semantics.

      Nice not answering a question whilst moaning about someone not answering a question though.
