  1. @sotsira Thanks for posting that interview, interesting analysis. I'm a huge fan of Nigel however even he knows in pragmatic terms the issue of tackling extremism is ongoing, yes much much more work still needed, especially within the relevant communities however the issue isn't being ignored. The PC environment within the UK is beyond doubt very disappointing to put it mildly, however it's the political establishment need overall needs to get a grip. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. The security services already have the resources and legislation required, also it requires a minimum of 30 pax (total) to monitor just one suspect, and these suspects are prioritised and reviewed regularly. You can't stop society, members of the public holding post attack vigil's, it's called freedom of expression, supporting and allowing people to grief, no different to post Westminster attack. Drastic measures? That's why Op Temperer (I've scrutinised it page by page) has been invoked and implemented and is working as planned, remember Temperer has full support from the police and all authorities, we do not need or want martial law. Tensions and anger is natural in the current climate, however calm heads prevail and allow those to focus on keeping us safe to get on with their job. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Unfortunately today's society irrespective of your nationality or country of residence is not immune to this cancerous virus of radicalised terrorism. Every act of terror is about and focused on hatred, this scum are very much in the minority and it requires a combined effort for ALL to aid the authorities in tackling the issue from all fronts. The current Op being invoked & implemented by TM is and was inevitable at some point, deployment of troops in London is expected however the Manchester CC is very reluctant to follow suit & the Police uplift and support element from other forces has obviously been a significant factor in not approving troop deployment in the city, the operation tempo is relentless & constructive and expect regular daily updates. RIP to all those involved and effected including a serving GMP female officer. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. The EEC in its original form & format was attractive to all concerned. However, over the years it's developed into a MEP gravy train with unregulated, unelected and unaccountable interfering overruling dictatorship. Sent from my SM-A500FU using Tapatalk
  5. Willing to accept, respect and move on for the best national interests. As a PM (in waiting) leading by example? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. On the issue of the 'Brexit Bill, it'll be interesting to see how this plays out, TM has given another clear indication that significant factor's must be taken into consideration. A paying member of 40+ years. Shares in the European Investment Bank & wishing to retain them. Junker already knows the TM is no push over however as Barnier is the chief tactical negotiator I don't see this going as planned by either side irrespective of the outcome. Lastly, I did admire TM in her manifesto speech replying to blood sucking journalists. 1, compared to Thatcher-rebuffed and do one. 2, Mayasim, media tittle tattle. As a leader she's uncharasmatic and not as naturally comfortable dealing with the media however the woman isn't taking any nonsense, a firm strong principle leader who's prepared to make hard difficult decisions...... Plan for peace prepare for war. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Apologies not needed. I'm not a Labour supporter so thankfully don't suffer agonising headache's [emoji57] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. I think your analysis is slightly flawed as we've come along way from blaming Thatcher. Labour's clean up after the Tories? Oh dear... You are aware St Tony of Labour adopted some of Thatcher's policies? (Research freely available). I see the same old mantra, Conservative's making the hard decisions that Labour are to cowardly to implement for fear of losing its voter base. Labour tax & spend while Bad Conservative's come in and tidy up the economic whilst getting a bad name doing it. Who was it that stated, Socialism is only as good until other people's money runs out? Along with a humour driven note from the last Labour treasury in charge.... sorry no money left. Lastly, I do agree that we need a strong opposition in the HoP and Labour are clearly miles away from that honourable title. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. My post focus was on the UK not global aspect, IIRC it originated from the 'US sub prime market. However, if I stand correct Brown was in office pre-during and post? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. In amongst that '40 years' of consecutive Tory Government was 13 years of Labour Blair, Brown and financial crash. Corbyn unflinching? Correct, he was in hiding from the media as soon as the draft manifesto leak hit the media desk's, that'll teach the PLP to give the Union cartel's first look of their rewind to 70's image of the UK.

  11. On the wealth creator issue, we would need to define and breakdown those between personal & business interests, along with the tax revenue and HR factor's too. (Not for this thread obviously). Brown & Blair's deregulation of the financial city allowed the wealthy to exploit to the full, yet those with business interests were still remaining in the UK riding out the stormy period of 2008, not forgetting Brian sacked his adviser who warned him of an impending financial crash so no excuses from the Labour faithful. The benefits system has imploded & is no longer an emergency safety net but an alternative lifestyle thanks to Blair & Co too, QE got HoP approval due to the 'banking industry' getting beyond control and corporate governance a simple afterthought. Benefits street is another fine example of the media/tv companies seeking a niche to highlight where 'all' previous governments have failed its electorate, the rich will always go and remain where their assets are either well looked after or swift return then relocate. Genuine welfare has its merits and should be supported within a reasonable timeframe, however make the welfare/benefits system so financially unattractive the only option is employment in some form.

  12. Slightly flawed is an understatement, the man is clearly delusional and having browsed through the 'Times'' analysis on the manifesto the thought of JC possibly becoming UK prime minister is extremely worrying & scary. All this anti-rich tosh when the UK needs wealth creators and investment to remain not relocate more corporate friendly. Labours policies certainly won't help reduce the £1.7 tn debt down any quicker than now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Ok, a short summary as the Brexit is very complex. (IMO) It mainly boils down to the EU & UK 'willing to compromise' in certain area's, a hard Brexit is TM ace card (ideally avoided though)* & if you look at the detail of the A50 script given to the EU a bilateral security & intelligence just to name other factor's. It's well recognised the EU/UK want reciprocal deal on citizen's rights which will be priority, as for ECJ, EAW, CPP, and numerous other issues the list is endless & mind boggling. The EU won't want to compromise on their vital pillar's however I suspect an 'association member' with single market fee access will apply so as to get around their pillar's policy. The EU want to remain political mafia bosses & its priority is deter the domino affect. *UK overseas investment & companies affected. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. Poor analysis to assume anything to be fair, a trade agreement I suspect will prevail eventually, without stating the obvious the focus will be the term's & conditions aspect. As for the €100 bn magic figure the 'media' keeps banging on about from unofficial Eurocrats for an exit bill......legally flawed. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Another example of EU inequality, in this article covering British motorists being penalised within parts of Europe. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
