True the treacherous, lying, adulterous buffon will soon be our PM. Mainly thanks to a very small group of mostly elderly white people.

Trouble is the main opposition is the current Labour party. I am glad I am as old as I am, childless and with siblings all in Australia.
However I feel politically, I am still very much glad to have my family around me!!!

The future is looking increasingly uncertain.

Boris Johnson has moved into Number 10 with just a suitcase full of clothes and his bike.

She also brought a suitcase.

In some ways I feel sympathy for Johnson's girlfriend. She was the straw that broke the marriage and she is only in her position because the wife chucked him out. But that is no reason to attack her on her figure, dress sense etc. I have heard the press comments have often been mysonigist. She might have been the mistress that wrecked the marriage but he chose to humiliate and hurt Marina Johnson yet again.

Certainly have. A story on MSN today and probably elsewhere. Name and photo of a man who was convicted some years ago. He works for a company who delivered something to Duke of Cambridge and saw the children. Security will have to be reviewed.

It seems as if a man made a mistake some years ago and has tried to go straight and be part of the working/taxpaying community since then.

Now his name and photo along with his past has been splashed everywhere.

Not excusing what he did but he paid the price and if he now wants to go straight the media should not do things that will stop him from doing that or identifies him so people can target him in real life or on the net

Over 10,000 NE steel workers jobs actually gone while we remained an EU member. Plus all the jobs and businesses that depend on them...

Oh and don't forget to mention the general worldwide turndown in petrol/diesel car sales! :wave:

But that's done. Those jobs won't come back as a result of leaving the EU.

Can you give any examples at all of businesses which are investing in the UK and investing in the UK *because* of Brexit?
