    This is a man who has flown around the world, multiple times.

    Still, "balance" and all that.

    to think an Ancient Greek pretty much worked out the circumference of the earth by measuring shadows in different places at the same time of day and by using brain power and maths. today, Freddie can fly round the earth and have access to all Nasa’s photos and today’s sophisticated tools and still reckon it could be flat. We’ve really f.ucking regressed. what a time to be alive! shame THM isn’t around to blame the EU for making us all thick.
    it is not that I have no past. rather, it continually fragments on the terrible and vivid ephemera of now.

    Back to the election - don't really have a say round here if I vote other than Tory

    Theyv'e held the seat for all but 4 of the last 100 yrs - decent constituency local MP who voted for all of May's & Boris's deals. He will be a shoe in with well over 50% of the vote.
    This year we will mainly be conquering Europe

    (paused for the moment, but hopefully to be continued)

    From what I understand, he said it as a prank.
    But it went straight over Brian Cocks head.
    Over the next three travel updates, up to the end of February, WHO continued to advise against travel restrictions, even as evidence mounted over the potential worldwide catastrophe that may result from the coronavirus.
    And that remains the position today. As the infections increased, deaths mounted, WHO’s travel advice remained essentially unmoved..

    i'm not surprised he'd want to pass off that view as a joke, though if he's simply changed his mind, who would blame him

    Nigel Farage has called on Boris Johnson to ditch his Brexit deal and "build a Leave alliance".

    At the launch of the Brexit Party's election campaign, the leader said bringing the parties together was "the only way" forward.

    But he warned Mr Johnson that if he turned down his offer, the party would field candidates in "every single seat" in England, Scotland and Wales.

    "Boris Johnson has rejected the suggestion from Nigel Farage and Donald Trump that he should work with the Brexit Party during the election."


    Deal will be announced next week then

    “The UK election takes place in one month. Can things still be turned around? Hannah Arendt taught that things become irreversible only when people start to think so. So the only words that come to my mind today are simply: don’t give up. In this match, we have already had added time, now we are in extra time, perhaps it will even go to penalties?”
    On matchdays, I reckon it'll be a long time before my name is darlowolf...

    Looks like Aaron Banks has had his twitter hacked. That's a shame. Fingers crossed he just happens to have some incriminating DM's...

    So , an EU official uses his position to comment on a UK election with a thinly veiled remainer backing. That absolutely galvanises those who want to reduce EU influence. Not for the first time a Donald T needs to shut the fuck up!
    Carole Baskin is to blame.

    He had left his position before he made the comment.

    He specifically said that if he had made that comment while in post he would have been fired. Presumably then he was referring to that specific post rather than a position within the EU full stop, which is how I read it and therefore was thinking of it as the comments of a private citizen, albeit a rather high profile one.

    I agree with your sentiment in general though. Neither Donald should be appearing to interfere in our sovereign politics, especially in an election campaign.

    At least I got one thing right.

    By agreeing to an election Labour have had their worse result since the 80's, the SNP are further away from IndyRef2 and the LibDems are at just 13 seats. Talk about turkeys voting for Christmas!

    Johnson negotiates very little if much different to that achieved by May

    No deal or hard Brexit in first half of 2020

    Britain is screwed for at least the next two decades

His changing opinions was proved to be divisive.Markets like stair lifts can go mup as well as down. Let the dust settle. What the result does give me is a little more faith in the British system showing the people when pissed off can cause a real upset. Now politicians from all sides need to earn their corn and come up with a plan for exit and the future. Sturgeon may well go for a referendum but the economic case is really really poor as on its own Scotland meet very few criteria to join the EU. Now is the time for the United Kingdom to unite and show its mettle.

    THAT IS NOT WHAT THAT IS. In three years absolutely nothing has changed. The sad shame of those posts is that they are completely accurate today and should have been acted on in June 2016 but were not. I am being asked , repeatedly , to own my choices and I do. You and others need to own yours too. For three years of bitching , fighting and moaning and we now have a huge tory majority and potentially a worse place than if the vote had not been respected in 2016. And no opposition.
    Carole Baskin is to blame.

    According to research by Bloomberg Economics, the cost of the UK's vote to leave has already reached £130 billion, with a further £70 billion likely to be added by the end of 2020.

    The analysis, carried out by economist Dan Hanson, found that business uncertainty has caused the UK's economic growth to lag behind that of other G7 countries since the 2016 vote.

    That means the British economy is now 3% smaller than it would have been if the UK had not voted to leave the EU.

    But the public should crowd fund £500k to make Big Ben bong to celebrate this chavalanche of cuntitude.

    Get to fuck wankers. I hope you raise nothing.
