  1. The US finance houses really, really didn't want Brexit, they put money into the Remain campaign and sent their yard dog Obama over to openly threaten us with the dire consequences of voting to leave the EU.

    Given this malice driven market situation, with a thwarted Goldman Sachs and the rest beating on the Pound like a gong, the recent Dollar/Pound graph was never going to be pretty.

  2. I think the idea is that as the law stands, it means things happen much more quickly because they are given the choice of moving to the site or leaving the Borough. Mind you, given that the police and council don't want to do anything about these bastards even when they've clearly broken the law, you have to wonder what will happen in practice. We all know what would happen if any non-traveller decided to drive across footpaths and churn up land that didn't belong to them before crapping all over it and throwing rubbish everywhere. They know who these people are, so why are they not arrested?  

    I'm afraid that if a pagga like the one at the Alford Social Club, a traveller christening celebration involving knives, an axe, and much blood and snot didn't result in any convictions, a little criminal damage certainly won't.

  3. It is being reported that the loveable rogues will be expected to pay £90 a week to stop on the councils planned £2million camp, as an alternative to crapping in bushes for free and clearing off at the drop of a hat when things get too hot, I don't expect much of an uptake on that idea.

  4. Oh, they're all fair game.


    If I was to have a go at that Trump fella it would be because I think he's a t***.


    You're having a pop at the Clinton woman based on her looks.


    See the difference?

    She walked away from some extremely serious charges as recently as last week, not because of her looks, but because you can't indite a Clinton, a family almost as fabulously corrupt as the Kennedy clan but not quite as dumb.

    Better a **** than a crook and a liar.

  5. That's another of those opinions presented as factoid.


    So, yes, they can.


    Still, nothing like a spot of casual misogyny for bolstering your political position eh?

    Oh I do apologise, I thought that US presidential candidates were fair game around here.

    That must only apply to the other one then.

  6. I never built her up, seems no one ever has, until she stood for Brexit.  Lying on your CV when applying for a job sort of gives the game away.  At the end of the day some crud will be voted in as Tory leader.

    Whichever 'Crud' will be voted in as Tory leader, at least it won't be on the whim of any entryist soap dodger who can raise £3.

    Unlike the scarecrow.

  7. Broad brush indeed, your generation have been all over the news for the last week, blubbering into their mobiles about how their future has been stolen; and you've been doing it on here - pathetic.         8)

    Something tickled me last week, I happened to listen to the Jeremy Vine radio show and the days subject was the ill feeling caused in families between young and old because of the result of the referendum vote to leave the EU.

    To my amusement, most of the whiny, self centred brats who came on to hiss at their parents and elderly relatives were in the 25-40 age group...hmmm. 

  8. The media's stinky agenda was perfectly demonstrated when the Warrington Guardian ran a headline last week to the effect that no hate crimes had been reported in the county in the wake of the Brexit.

    No hate crimes, why write an article about it then?

    There were no outbreaks of cholera, plagues of locusts or cases of elephants falling from the skies either, yet local journos were strangely silent about these non events, what's all that about then?

  9. I don't care for May one little bit, most of the EU shenanigans which fuelled the leave vote occurred on her watch, and were rubber stamped without a murmur.

    If the media are to be believed, Mrs Leadsom seems to be a throwback to a time when politicians were intelligent, dedicated and principled, no wonder we've heard so little of her.

    Yes, Leadsom it is. 

  10. Glad Mrs Leadson is standing, imo she's probably the best candidate. As for the rest, in both Parties, the public has had a rare glimpse of the true sordid nature of politics, which at the end of the day, is principally about climbing the greasy pole, not about the best interests of the Nation.    8)

    They're bigging Andrea Leadsom up for all they're worth, I'm not sure if this is a real challenge or just an attempt to make the race interesting, we'll see.

  11. I'm confident that the probability and projected costs of major incidents involving broken down vehicles in heavy fog have been carefully weighed against the savings to be made by not upgrading our motorways, and that the government concluded that the occasional bout of carnage makes sound economic sense.

  12. With regards to this one and the man in the street, I'm with Sid Vicious.

    I would be too, normally, but just every now and again the **** drags himself away from the footy, Big Brother and X Factor, away from the media propaganda, away from the politicians who tell him they own his opinion because of the colour of the rosette they wear, and he tells it like he sees it.

  13. You get a postcard to fill in which asks where you've come from, where you're going and why, and if you'll be using a motorway.

    Plus what phone network you use, I suspect the survey company are killing two birds with one stone there.

    There's the option of a prize draw, naturally you need to identify yourself in that case...
