Re: Brexit

Many Leavers seem to think that withdrawal from the EU on 31 October is the End. In reality it is the end of the beginning. Our government then has to negotiate the new relationships with the EU, negotiate new relationships with other nations, establishing new frameworks - such as farm subsidies. Wh...

Re: Come on Richard...

There have been many suggestions made here to boost membership of IM or to retain or rekindle interest amongst existing members.

Whilst some are impractical or would take a budget way beyond that available, Richard has shown scant interest in interest pursuing them.

Re: Citizen Khan pushes ahead with the plan to shoot himself in the foot

Re: Citizen Khan pushes ahead with the plan to shoot himself in the foot

True, but Mr Boro Boy has many times complained here about people twisting arguments - yet here he has added his own spin which is at odds with the article he quoted. When called out on this he has persisted with his twisting and then incorrectly accused others of misquoting him - and hasn't had the...

And 7% who do not have access (maybe more if you count access at home only) are going to be the poorest in society.
