Remember remember...

G F would be delighted to see the self destruction of political elite as they all form a circle and stab each other in the back.

I really would love to see “spitting image” resurrected to depict all this... :D

Spitting Image was brilliant, a British classic, but I doubt that would get past the PC Censors these days. :(

:tup Just what we've all been waiting for... some good news.*clap *super


The UK, at #1 is, apparently, a world leader in finance? *yes

:( I know, I know it does sound like bad news. :) However, try looking on the bright side... it's all fake money. ;)

Now we know the real reason the Prancing Queen said austerity is coming to an end and why JC can spend, spend, spend. :D

How many more times do people have to see top brexiteers getting it wrong, before they finally see that they haven’t got a clue about reality...

So it's OK for Tusk to insult Theresa May with his no cherries on the cake gimmick in Salzburg . But, it is not ok for our Foreign Secretary to say that it seems that no one can leave the EU just like it was with USSR.

Bullies don't like being confronted do they?

Does anyone take any notice of Jeremy 'Cockney Rhyming Slang' these days?

Of course we're leaving the EU - "Brexit means Brexit" and the sunny uplands are awaiting us after March next year, and Liam 'Easiest Thing in The World' Fox has a fistful of trade deals at the ready!

There is more than a grain of truth in what he said and a touch of hyberboly seems to be the way to go.

They are politicians. What do you expect?

The ones who are most clueless about reality are those EU enthusiasts who put the project above all else, including their economy.

:tup When it comes to politics and in particular, Brexit, I'm thankful that we have, and contiue to pay top £££'s and, provide excellent benefits and retiremnt packages in order to get the best people to fulfill the tasks this country has to face each and every day.

I'd hate to think what we would get from the rest, if we paid peanuts or even minimum wage and that they would have to take time off for their real day job. :rolleyes:

The Tories have just won a contest in the Guinness Book for fitting the largest number of total bar stewards gathered into one location. A spokes man said

"They really made an effort. They’ve got every type, from scheming ministers to horrible old couples from the shires who are still sad about the end of apartheid.”
Delegate Norman Steele said: “As a wealthy retiree whose life is a routine of lawn-mowing and petty boundary disputes, the highlight so far has been complaining about breakfast at my hotel because they wouldn’t let me have seven sausages.

“Besides that I just enjoy being with like-minded people who love Brexit and still describe women as ‘crumpet’.” :D

Seven sausages? That's clearly a code for some kind of uprising.:eek:
