    Should she be "rescued"

    The IS bride, who left the UK for the IS Caliphate, now wants to return to the UK - do we want her back ?

    Should she be "rescued"

    Well, as I expected., it looks like the liberal, bleeding heart lawyers and politicians will get her back to the UK; Javid has already backed down. But we shouldn't be surprised when HMG has already allowed over 40 back. So, assuming our intelligence services believe any of them to represent an ongoing risk to the rest of us; they'll be placed under surveillance, with three shifts of agents watching them 24/7, at a cost to the tax-payer. If they go to prison to indoctrinate others or reaffirm their own indoctrination - again a cost to the tax-payer. Meanwhile, any single mothers will no doubt be entitled to a home and benefits - again courtesy of the tax-payer. Rather than "PREVENT", perhaps we could employ the Chinese system of hard line counter brain washing (re-education ! )to completely eradicate their superstitious nonsense ?

    Gang of seven -

    See a gang of seven Remoaner Prima- Donnas has left the Labour Party, citing Labour's Brexit position and institutionalised anti-semitism as the reason. Well, I'm not sure Labour has a cohesive policy on Brexit, other than to honour the result of the referendum, which these Remoaners are trying to undermine, and it would seem that anti-semitism is being confused for anti-Israeli sentiments, and a cloak for left v right splits in the Party. Perhaps these arrogant careerists will now stand for re-election thus giving "the people" an opportunity to vote for their stance or otherwise ?

    Gang of seven -

    Correct Dave; but it's the nature of the beast: they arrogantly believe they know what's best for us, as has been the case since Parliament evolved. During the civil war, Lord Manchester et al , were prepared to offer concessions to King Charles; despite the victories of the Army, made up of common soldiers who didn't even have a vote. Cromwell's scathing rebuke to them, when he called in Col Pride to turf them out, is still applicable today.

    Now three Tories have joined them - stuck in the middle of nowhere !

    Insulin ?

    Assuming it's not just project fear, and that there is a grain of truth in the latest panic, that there will be a shortage of insulin supplies post-Brexit; why is it that we are reliant on importing such essential supplies ?

    Insulin ?

    The Yanks had a zero tariff at Pearl Harbour 7th Dec 1941 !

    Nice to see your still on duty Asp. 😉

    Can you qualify?

    Think we're way past the point of no return now Tex; historical revisionism is now the norm; and encouraged by the BBC.

    Insulin ?

    If foreign manufacturers want to injure their exports and threaten their own workforce, why should we worry ?
  11. Observer II

    Insulin ?

    Porche are saying their cars will cost 10% more post-Brexit; not that many can afford them anyway, but I presume Porche realise they'll be selling less cars into the UK, thus taking a dip in profits.

    Gang of seven -

    😄 If only Sid, but the problem is; they won't chance a bi-election, so they remain MPs, and continue do their own thing, regardless of the view of their constituents.

    A breath of fresh air ?

    If we can get past the Brexit saga; it seems we are facing new uneasy issues; namely roadside air pollution. The bottom line of course is the fact that there are too many cars on our finite road system, congested and pumping out pollutants, which are already affecting the health of both the young and old. The question is, will the public be prepared for the lifestyle changes required to end it ? We've already seen in France, the yellow vest rebellion against green fuel taxation, London taxi drivers protesting at congestion charging etc. Not to mention of course the interests of the car manufacturers, and the haulage industry. We've even seen schoolkids threatening strike action against climate change, when they are the most threatened by air pollution, as their mother drive a couple of miles to the school to pick them up; and no doubt they'll be asking daddy for a car when they're 17 ! So, will we see the necessary changes or will a future generation just have to suck it up ?

    Should she be "rescued"

    No doubt she will be given a really good talking to, and spend time on the naughty step; while her ISIS mates think up some mass killing sprees in the UK.

    Looks like Donald wants to slam a 25% tariff on imported cars, including those from the EU. 😎

    White Goods Removal

    Thought the whole point in collecting fridge-freezers, was so they could be properly decommissioned, so that hole in the ozone layer can be closed ?

    A breath of fresh air ?

    No doubt their tree hugging snowflake teachers. As an aside; had a report just the other day from a relative. Seems they were called into school about their kids behaviour, of which, the teachers had been complaining. His crime ? - asking too many questions ! 🙄

    Should she be "rescued"

    In this instance Dave, I'm happy for the UK to sub-contract to the Yanks; and while they're at it, they can have the rest they've got on these phoney PREVENT programmes.

    A breath of fresh air ?

    One has to laugh at the thought of all these striking school kids, complaining about enviromental pollution, stood outside school, breathing in those car fumes from Mom's car ! 😉

    Should she be "rescued"

    Your right Latch, but our hand wringing liberal politicians are already squirming with excuses for these nutters. The same people who demand votes for sixteen year olds, now saying she was groomed at a vunerable age. So even if they imprison these fanatics, they just turn prison into a university for their doctrine and infect others. Seems the best solution would be to hand them over to the Yanks, who can lock them up in Guantanamo and throw away the key - sorted.

    Should she be "rescued"

    According to the Press, IS members, returning to the UK have been placed on (prevent) counter-brainwashing programmes, so not charged or jailed. Meanwhile, the Yanks, who claim the Brits are too soft with these people, have said, that they will intern any (incl Brits) captured IS members in Guantanamo. (BBC Ceefax)

    ... so the UK taxpayers can keep her in or out of prison ? no thanks.

    First past the post ?

    Our political system has allowed the two major Parties to dominate power since it started, both seeking the centre ground in order to maximise their vote, whilst curbing the aspirations of the "extremists" within, resulting in a nice comfortable system that provides a job for life (if you keep your nose clean), and encouraging the delusion that voters have given every MP a blank cheque to do whatever they think is best for us. Well, it seems Brexit has brought about the realisation that neither the Labour or Conservative Party are really united entities; both have been split asunder; leading to speculation of new "centerist" Parties, which will arguably continue the same old, same old; disconnect with the Prols. Real choice has moved to the extremes, and the idea that PR could save them is rather fictitious, as a referendum is clearly the ultimate in PR - something our career politicians choose to ignore. They criticise the new public mood as "populism"; well surely the essence of democracy is to place your policies before the electorate, who then choose their most popular ?

    Failing Grayling !

    Whilst it appears the modern practise is for contract bidders to have no idea of the practical aspects of the contract they're bidding for, but to assemble sub-contractors to carry out the actual work; it still seemed strange that Grayling awarded a Ferry contract to a bidder with no ships. But isn't there the possibility that this deal had a lot more to it than meets the eye, and is worthy of further inquiries, to ensure no corruption was involved ?

    Deal or No Deal ?

    What is new Sid, it's looking more likely.
