Re: So, the Autocratic Dictator Johnson is Proroguing parliament. Very democratic.

Being tax efficient is what most people / households do who have a relatively good income, I do not agree with Tax Avoidance Schemes and they should be made illegal and subject to EU Scrutiny - that rich given the EU has never submitted accounts in all the time in its existence and they want to scru...

Re: So, the Autocratic Dictator Johnson is Proroguing parliament. Very democratic.

Lets not forget Labours stance in all this as it has changed at every turn. Boris has had his hands tied at every turn by Pro Remainers who do not respect the result of the referendum. Emily Thornbury has stated on a politics programme the other day that should labour win an election she will negoti...

Re: God help the UK!

A good piece - many would say that the way it is written is by a man with an axe to grind. For all his short comings the conservative members voted him in so as they same time will tell. I am certainly not going to judge a man by how many women he has bedded or people he may have upset, I think the ...

Re: A specially strained relationship

Trade deals cannot be done until the UK leaves the EU end of, Liam Fox can speculate as much as he likes but no one knows for sure how long it will take. It certainly won't be 15 - 20 years as the UK does not need the agreement of 27 other states. We go, we negotiate, we sign, 6 months 6 years howev...

Re: God help the UK!

My personal gut feeling is that he will go for a snap election, with labour doing a U turn (6m voters gone for sure) and the Brexit Party already talking to Bojo and his aides etc I suspect it would be enough for Bojo to take the gamble and go for the general election in order to get a majority in t...

Re: Racism’s ugly head and Brexit being an excuse to allow it...?

Could not agree more Dominic - Brexit has brought more scum to the surface since the referendum but like you said they have been around for decades along with racism in all its different aspects. The UK has been a nation that has welcomed people from all over the world, different races, colours and ...

Re: God help the UK!

I watched his first speech on BBC news last week and I felt that Bojo did extremely well, put Corbyn well and truly in his place and McDonald was so incensed he almost walked out but thought better of it. What struck me was the Tory benches looked energised. I liked May and have often said she was p...

Re: Light at the end of Boris' dark tunnel?

Sajid Javid is a smart cookie and obviously thinks he can generate the money somewhere to fund various proposals so far put forward by Bojo. He seems to be trying to take the bull by the horns and fight for either a better deal or will try to go for a no deal which I suspect will require a snap gene...

It is usually a rare occasion that I agree with HIC but I agree entirely with HIC sentiments on this occasion.

Re: Trump's Latest Pearls of Wisdom

And then we have more of Trumps wisdom in todays press, yet again mouth engaged before brain. I admire the bloke in his business endeavours but for someone who without doubt is an intelligent man and the POTUS but he never seems to think before he tweets something where he has not checked out the fa...

Re: Rory Stewart gets the Hedgehog Vote

Dominc - that is a well written, thoughtful and balanced piece of writing, Rory Stewart obviously has more about him than meets the eye. I do not like Boris for the same reasons most people don't like him but he look like he is going to romp home at the moment and I do stress at the moment.

The worst thing is this MP is a contender for the PM's job - I suppose anyone who can discuss hedgehogs in a near empty chamber and keep a straight face and be serious must believe he can debate anything

Re: Rory Stewart gets the Hedgehog Vote

And Boris got the rest, 114 nearest rival at 43. Trump for President and Boris as Prime Minister doesn't look so far fetched beyond belief now. I would love to be in the she's of anyone who had a few bob on that Bet.

Here are a few facts and figures certain posters don't bother posting as they choose to only look for the negatives with Trump. I can't stand the bloke but his reputation as a businessman and his policies as US president speak for themselves when it comes to the economy. 1st - Unemployment under Tru...

His father and siblings helped him out with a few million along with banks, and yes his father was a millionaire but nowhere near a billionaire which according to Forbes as of 2019 Trumps nett worth is $3.1 Billion - hardly a dramatic fall. Show me any business that does not utilise the banks money ...
