  1. How droll, I was waiting on that for a while ;-) someone's been watching Labour's Mrs Butler.. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. The EU wants the UK to remain a member, Turkey however is not welcome but used as a Politcal pawn by the EU for reasons widely been documented by the world media. I'm more than happy to be less important than Turkey, I certainly don't class myself anymore important than the Euro adopted countries however I also care less for the obnoxious arrogance of the EU, so relieved the UK is leaving.

  3. I like Vince Cable, but in fairness the LD's could do worse than the London MP Mr Hughes as leader, who I believe is trying to win his seat back. At the moment the LD's are seen as madder than the loony Party under Farron. A bit strong is wishing Blair dead" (sorry MoDs). Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Any effort that sends Blair back to the hole he belong's to is a positive for the UK. Blair is past political vermin & a national embarrassment. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. The UK since the Brexit result has already attracted major investment, along with increased investment by companies already settled for a while, these businesses don't significantly invest without feasible studies carried out otherwise shareholders wouldn't approve it in the first place. The trickle down affect doesn't happen overnight, I'm no capitalist however I'm a staunch realist in what the 'man in the street' expects and is prepared to accept. Inequality will remain until more responsibility is taken instead of many expecting something for nothing. As the UK debt is still scarily far too high and I strongly suspect the Government will focus on reducing this, thus revise carefully how the revenues are better controlled, I suspect until that £1.7tn has been reduced significantly then the lower tax 'may' (if implemented) only be filtered in at a staggered pace, I'm no bean counter however Government borrowing governance (austerity) must stay on course. Personally, as the debt is so high it's a plausible proposal that shouldn't be ignored when we're close to surplus. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Cameron's military cock up was interfering with Libya without a coherent post conflict action plan, many would suggest another poodle to US. Thankfully, despite the tragic ME events Syria is not (for now on U.K. radar). It's early days for TM. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. If the EU plays hard ball then why shouldn't corporation tax be more competitive?* Reduced services will continue until improved efficiency, and less monies going to EU coffees for one, other factors shouldn't be eliminated either. I understand there's an element of hard line Cons but doubt TM will allow them to flex their agenda, sterling will re-adjust just like it did shortly after the result. *the corporate tax attraction shouldn't be seen as a negative issue & seen more as wealth creators, thus filtering down. FTSE 100 or 250? As 250 is more UK internally focused & gives more tangible evidence than the other which I'm sure you knew that... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I specialise in risk, I also fully understand that 'preparation and planning prevents pi$$ poor performance'. Without revisiting this like an old stuck record....The 'possible' greater risk was to remain in a ignorant defiant and EU that blatantly refuses to reform, we've had 40yrs of a unbalanced marriage that on many situations Westminster was over-ruled by Brussel's. Cameron found out the hard way that Brussel's are not interested in reform when it had the opportunity to prove it as Brussel's knew Cameron was also an EU supporter, however May calling an GE was unwise but a reluctant move. Result: Leave, the UK is quite capable & wishes to be a European neighbour but not have the EU political affiliation. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. The 'no blank cheque' hypocrisy from a Political party (Blair & Brown teamwork) that allowed the UK to be in the current £1.7 trillion debt and rising. Mr Blair, don't let facts get in the way of a good Guardian column rant. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Whilst I agree that UK politics has flaws, the EU political inefficiency element also has to be highlighted & since Brexit result the European Parliament are equally if not more dirty, Guy & Antonio's press conference is just one example of many. The only difference between the UK & other nations (that appear unofficially unhappy) is the UK had the spine & minerals to do something about it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. Maybe he should be given a 2nd opportunity at his Middle East Peace Envoy post. Damascus is missing you Mr Blair. On another note, I see JC wants to Abolish food banks, ban Zero hour contracts and set a minimum £10 hr. Food banks for people unable to manage their finances properly. Companies will relocate where they can operate zero hour, everyone loses. How many companies can afford to pay £10 without job cuts? http://labourlist.org/2017/04/corbyns-vision-for-britain-the-policies-labour-is-set-to-include-in-its-manifesto/ Who advises the Labour Party these days?

  12. Not all foreigners believe Le Pen would will get any further, coming 2nd out of 11 candidates shows plenty 'did' vote for alternative option & Le Pen herself has attempted to drag the party away from the 'extreme right image'. Personally, it's Macron's to lose & the EU will breath a sigh of relief.....for now. Congratulations to both Macron & Le Pen. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Unsure if this has already been posted, however I think the likelihood is 'Macron & Fillion' will go through. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/the-four-likeliest-outcomes-of-today%e2%80%99s-french-election-and-what-they-mean-for-the-world/ar-BBAaHqk?li=BBoPWjQ If Le Pen makes it through then the EU will certainly be drawing up a Battleplan.

  14. He wouldn't join a party he'd start one. Given half the chance, front woman Gina Millar as you have to media savvy at least to stand up to scrutiny and be very aware & knowledgeable, SME are vital criteria in today's climate of ruthless politics. I've (briefly) researched how much Blair wants to return yet knows his best place is behind the scene's in consultation role. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. I'd like to see evidence of the Brexit disaster waiting to happen to the UK prior to making a conclusion. Also, I've just seen the R4 interview where Blair actually accepts the EU result, and states he's so passionate about Brexit he's tempted to return to politics, saying that May's Brexit is 'unreasonable'. Simple Hypocrisy, so passionate that he didn't offer the electorate the vote [emoji849] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
