    PJ, your ignorance is showing - too much BBC maybe? You really would make a fine Democrat, no real ideas or productive policies, all you have are, childish personal attacks. Do you realize that in all of the discussions on this forum, you have never once advanced one grain of factual argument, it's all venom driven drivel. Counselling? Off on a short vacation folks, leave in an hour and it's colder'n a gold diggers ass in Montana - 45 degrees but they have heat in the casino, so I'll leave PJ to y'all.

    I did not criticize the House PJ, I cast an aspersion on Congress. Plus Trump did not 'lose' the House, it went to the Democrats as it usually does in mid-term elections. In Presedential elections, the imbalance created by huge, highly populated cities and States like California and New York, which are predominantly Democrat havens and the less populated States like Montana and Wyoming etc, which are predominantly Republican, is corrected by the Electoral College, so that every State's viewpoint is represented. The fact that California may send a hundred Representatives to congress and Montana may only have two, is considered to be unfair and non-representative, so every State is awarded a certain number of electoral votes and those votes determine the winner. There is no Electoral College in the mid-terms, so the big urban vote swamps everything else. In the case of the Senate, every State gets two Senators, hence 100 Senators in the Senate, so in a fair fight, the Republicans win. Here endeth the first lesson 😊

    The term "hard" or "soft" Brexit was invented by the Remoaners, in order to sell the idea of somekind of half leaving, where we would accumulate the up sides whilst getting rid of the downsides (something Labour still seem to believe), thus the birth of cakeism. It was only when they introduced it, that I discovered that by voting LEAVE, I was voting for a hard Brexit, complete seperation, and finally independence for the UK; no political dictatorship from unelected Brussels beaurocrats; no coughing up £10 billion a year to bail out basket case economies in the Balkans wanting to join, no more total incompetance in allowing in illegal migrants, and no more free movement of people from EU States, whether they have a job or not.. The reality is, that ultimately, the pragmatism of the market will sort out the trade issues, as such a large market on their doorstep will not be ignored by German car makers or French, Belgian, Dutch, and Irish farmers etc. Spain, Portugal, Italy and Greece (all with a large unemployment issue), will not wish to impede the thousands of British tourists visiting their countries either. The PM has been too timid or has tried the soft option, and the EU has taken advantage all along, walking away will bring them to their senses.

    Democracy has already been thwarted. The people's vote of 2016 has been betrayed by the civil servants & it is doubtful that any of the Brexiteers actually have the bottle to seize the poisoned chalice from Mrs May. The democratic will of the people has been ignored.

    Three women die together in an accident and go to heaven. When they get there, St. Peter says, "We only have one rule here in heaven: don't step on the ducks!" So they enter heaven, and sure enough, there are ducks all over the place. It is almost impossible not to step on a duck, and although they try their best to avoid them, the first woman accidentally steps on one. Along comes St. Peter with the ugliest man she ever saw. St. Peter chains them together and says, "Your punishment for stepping on a duck is to spend eternity chained to this ugly man!" The next day, the second woman steps accidentally on a duck and along comes St. Peter, who doesn't miss a thing. With him is another extremely ugly man. He chains them together with the same admonishment as for the first woman. The third woman has observed all this and, not wanting to be chained for all eternity to an ugly man, is very, VERY careful where she steps. She manages to go months without stepping on any ducks, but one day St. Peter comes up to her with the most handsome man she has ever laid eyes on - very tall, long eyelashes, muscular, and thin. St. Peter chains them together without saying a word. The happy woman says, "I wonder what I did to deserve being chained to you for all of eternity?" The guy says, "I don't know about you, but I stepped on a duck!"

    There was a perfect man and a perfect woman. They met each other at a perfect party. They dated for two perfect years. They had the perfect wedding and the perfect honeymoon. They had two perfect children. One day the perfect man and the perfect woman were driving in there perfect car, they saw an elf by the side of the road, being the perfect people they were they picked him up. Well as the perfect man and the perfect woman were driving with the elf, somehow they got into an accident. Two died and one lived. Who died and who lived? . . . . . . . The perfect woman, because the perfect man and elves aren't real.

    He is 69 and wants to change his age to 49. Has he really thought that one through properly. If he had been British then they would probably say "OK no problem , oh and by the way can we have all the pension money we have paid you back along with the bus pass and all the prescription money you should have paid over the last nine years"🤭

    Fixings things is easy, if it moves and shouldn't apply generous quantities of gorilla tape. if it doesn't move and should apply generous quantities of WD40. For anything else nod sagely and utter the words "it's supposed to be like that" 🤔🤣

    I think it is fair to say we had a referendum because Cameron expected a resounding endorsement of his feeble negotiations over EU membership. The calamity of May's general election came about because the people who voted to leave the EU had different axes to grind on the domestic front. May was naive to accept the poor advice to call the snap general election which backfired badly.

    So nothing new there then. Politician will say what they need to to keep themselves on the gravy train. Just because a minister reigns does not mean that he is on the dole, it just means he doesn't have to do that particular job any more. He still has a job unlike you or me if we had resigned from our job. Media people need to keep themselves in a job and will peddle anything that they deem as newsworthy adding sensational headlines in a bid to sell their wares. Even at a local level this happens. (probably not on this website ) but same story's on a rival website have some very sensational headline which lead to a five line story with less information than a packet of crisps. About the only thing that you can say will be true is that "People die". When it come to things like "THE FUTURE!!!!" at best it is a good guesstimate, at worst mere speculation.

    It is quite common for Management to report on work matters of which they have no understanding, indeed it is common every month! What he was told to do was get ready for a no deal. The fact that there are so many different views amongst MPs is the reason that it is no difficult to get agreement not the problem of the agreement. Have you read the documents or are you just repeating the opinions of the offenderati?

    Love her or hate her, the withdrawal negotiations would have been right up Thatcher's street. She would have had Barnier & his cronies crying in their continental breakfasts.

    I finally learned what is basically wrong with political systems, at least in the US. Was watching a house renovating program on tv when they introduced a Representative who was a electrician before being elected to the House. He was there to help out for a few hours. The host asked him if there were any other electricians in the House, he said "No, there are a couple of welders, a few housewives and some business men and three hundred lawyers !! There are 435 members of the House and three hundred are lawyers. No wonder we are getting screwed by Congress.😀😕

    Just recalling the ballot form, it gave two options - Leave or Remain - nothing on it about "a deal".

    On an even more sceptical note, given that our ancestors supposedly came from Africa in the first place, Africa has had humans living there longer than anybody else. So how come they haven't managed to get around to sorting out their fresh water situation themselves, long after the rest of the world has done it? And also, if the water they're all drinking is so toxic, how come they didn't all die off millennia ago? One of the mysteries of life.

    Anyone who thinks that a good proportion of our foreign aid hasn't ended up in the Swiss bank accounts of the rulers of many of the countries the aid was sent to is living in an alternative universe. And this has been going on for over 50 years, so who knows how much British taxpayers money has been wasted this way. Makes the EU look like a bargain.

    I must say, after digging out this most awful post of Algy's, I find him guilty of...making a terrible joke. The return of Commissar Kije, then.

    Maybe there shouldn't be any religious service at the Cenotaph at all, just a minute's silence, the poppy laying, 21 gun salute and march past to the sound of marshall music, so that we all really focus on what this ceremony is about.
