  1. You're missing the point by a country mile. The far right are, bizarrely, providing an outlet for electorates that the mainstream have deserted in their eagerness to ride the globalist train.
  2. The rise of the far right in the west is deeply disturbing but was entirely predictable: the liberal globalists, who have dominated western politics from the early noughties, have made a huge mess of crucial issues, treating populations, cultures and countries like commodities. And, to this day, refuse to acknowledge their mistakes, using the tried and trusted methods of politicians the world over of treating the masses as a stupid and malleable entity. The masses aren't so stupid anymore, and the far right offers them an outlet that should have been made available to them from the mainstream. We see from the the EU's ongoing uncaring and arrogant behaviour that the liberal globalists think that they can play the bigger game and ride roughshod over the masses to achieve their version of utopia controlled by elites.
  3. It was, I think, fellow member Orac (a remainer) who recently described Blair as slightly less popular than Gary Glitter . If Project Fear wants to kill off what's left of it's increasingly desperate rearguard campaign, putting Blair back into frontline politics is the way to go .
  4. They apparently want to ban sharia courts, but won't ban Jewish courts because we've had them for hundreds of years!?!?
  5. http://news.sky.com/story/eu-brexit-negotiator-says-pms-snap-election-will-not-strengthen-hand-in-talks-10847756 The EU is getting more than a little bit hacked off with it's failure to shackle PM May. Moles such as Sir Ivan Rogers pushed out, and now parliamentary moles about to be neutered by a general election. Expect a lot more bitching from the assorted goons who front this shoddy organisation. And more still when the real negotiating starts and the weakness of their position starts to become exposed.
  6. Nah, she's got a taste for it now. And she has backers. She wouldn't dare put herself forward for public approval though; that'd be the end of her five minutes.
  7. Comes out with plenty of anti-government soundbytes whilst pulling interesting faces?
  8. The Labour party has been stuck between a rock and a hard place for a looooong time. The parliamentary wing is infested with Blairite 'soundbite' yuppies with no moral compass, who might as well be Liberal Democrats . The constituency wing is infested with the purple-haired nose-ring brigade which got Corbyn into the box seat, What a bloody mess!
  9. I know you're not going to agree with this because you're basically pro-EU, but the Eurozone is, for me, a nutshell of why the EU doesn't work. Co-operation was always the way to go on every issue. Integration is generations away at best: trying to force the issue economically has wrecked economies that were previously unstable; trying to force the issue socially is damaging societies.
  10. We've had this discussion before. And it was a reain poster who inadvertently identified the issues with the UK economy in the 1960s and 1970s by linking to a detailed article on the problems of outdated industrial equipment and methods, coupled with trades union militancy. The Thatcher government dealt effectively with trades union militancy through new laws. Though that government's rather brutal remedy for industrial stagnation led to a few big casualties, and is mainly responsible for our property and finance-based boom and bust economy.
  11. "Unnamed Washington and European officials said....." Hmmm
  12. You couldn't ask the same question regards the extreme right/left because the extreme right/left aren't routinely involved in acts of terrorism. Whereas extrteme islamicists are. A better question is: Why does the liberal left do intellectual triple somersaults to normalise islamic terrorism in the context of radical politics? Though you have astutely identified that laws in the west urgently need to be de-liberalised/de-sensitised culturally in order to curtail radical extremists playing the system.
  13. Wow! Looks like PM May wasn't confident about parliamentary support on brexit.
  14. The difference, of course, is that there will be more Indian businesspeople and students adding to the the country's fabric, and less Europeans reducing the working class and lower middle class wage table. Not to mention the hordes of eastern European gypsies who have invaded more than a few working class towns, bringing with them their 'unique' ways of making a living.
  15. No, the really sad thing is people like you buy into the pro-EU hype and nonsense. It's a hopelessly corrupt and inefficient organisation which is geared up to essentially serve the German economy , with the other big economies feeding on the leftovers. Ask yourself how Frau Merkel can veto an early trade deal despite holding no official role within the EU. One thing Trump, for all his faults, has got right is to correctly identify that Germany is milking the system.The corruption and largesse within the EU organisation is the reward to it's lackeys for their service, and has been used extensively to reward British politicians at the ar$e end of their careers/on the road to nowhere. The UK has basically been conned. And, when the divorce finally happens, when assorted EU goons stop spitting their dummies out, and when the dust has settled, it will become glaringly obvious that Europe needs the UK far more than the UK needs Europe. Anyway, back ontopic: as noted by others, this is a non-story. It's just a normal adjustment that all the banking and finance industry businesses will have to make post-brexit.
