  1. EU still open to Britain changing mind on Brexit

    I think the headline should read: "EU want's Britain to change mind on Brexit"
  2. Better spend it fast as bitcoin has nearly lost half its value in the last 4 weeks...
  3. I think the real problem is the PFI gravy train... Introduced by the Major government of 1992 and widely condemned by the labour opposition, The use of PFI was very limited until 1997 but became widespread under the new Labour government. With hospitals, schools and other government builds built on the "Nether Never" (PFI) it has come back to bit the government on the backside, and the writing has been on the wall for years, with local authorities and NHS trusts saying they can not afford these buildings and talking about handing them back...
  4. Agree and it is not the Germans who buy them...
  5. Thai men told: get to work and make more kids!

    Suppose that is better than what UK MP Ben Bradly posted... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-42712180
  6. Liquidation = Bankruptcy http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-42712180
  7. Another smoke screen... it is not a mental health test.
  8. This should be part of the Brexit negotiations, and not negotiated separately...
  9. Traffic police fined me illegally

    You need to find out the exact wording of the law... It maybe that you need to get off the bike before removing your helmet and you need to put it on before getting on a bike, I see plenty of normal people doing that.
  10. While Corbyn and his cronies are trying to political point score on this, one has to remember their part in this mess. Typical Labour party spokes person (with selective amnesia) on radio4's Today program this morning, after stating what the Tories did wrong, he was questioned about events when Labour was in power, his reply "I don't know about that" like a scratched record... I am no fan of the Tories but the question that everybody keeps asking what have they been doing for the last 3 month, the answer is probably a lot, working out what to do if Carillion went tit's up, if they were seen to be doing something then that would have pushed Carillion over the edge. Why award those contracts to Carillion? possibly Corrillion had approached the government pointing out if they did not get contracts their banks would pull the plug on them. What to do with Corillion. IMHO it should be spit into small companies, each project should be a separate company, then auction them off.
  11. Condo Rents Dropping?

    good point on the finger print scanners, may reduce the problem if it is really is a problem other than the government not being paid tax. Often wondered if one could actually register their condo unit as a hotel (guest room)? IE, have to pay tax and register guest with immigration.
  12. Pattaya police have updated information relating to the 30 Year old Thai wanted in connection with this theft... He may be wearing "Lederhosen"
  13. OK but there are other sources... http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/charlottesville-latest-donald-trump-father-fred-arrested-ku-klux-klan-kkk-rally-riot-queens-new-york-a7891701.html Also https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/02/28/in-1927-donald-trumps-father-was-arrested-after-a-klan-riot-in-queens/?utm_term=.a1e9740008f3 Whether you like it or not he is a racist just like his farther... It is in his genes (or jeans)
  14. Well he keeps his balls in his jeans most of the time...
