  1. No, he didn't. Some journo realised that Channel 4's charter was up for renewal, worked out that this would be in the next parliament, and that if Boris wins it would happen while he was leader. Put two and two together and they made the story "Boris to axe C4"
  2. Its free to download here. You usually put it on a USB stick and boot from that. https://antixlinux.com/ But if you need a CD making I'd be happy to help.
  3. It seems this person has history: https://www.thepostmillennial.com/the-truth-about-jessica-yaniv-is-beginning-to-emerge/
  4. An interesting watch, if only for McDonnell's body language and his folded arms. Billionaire John Caudwell goes head-to-head with Labour's John McDonnell https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/world-europe-50691677/billionaire-john-caudwell-goes-head-to-head-with-labour-s-john-mcdonnell
  5. Its not just age. He's been a career backbencher all his life. He has no leadership qualities. He dithers and sits on the fence. When he meets someone he doesn't like he just blanks them. That's no way for a world leader to behave.
  6. What about the old lie that Labour have been bandying about for decades - "Tories want to privatise the NHS". "Tories want to get rid of the NHS" and so on? Selling it to the USA is just another.
  7. Channel 4 editorial suite - listening back to a Boris interview: "Hey if we muffle this and put wrong subtitles on, we can make it look like he says 'people of colour' rather than people of talent" "Yeah, run with it, that'll teach Boris for not turning up last week." Then other news organisations release a nice crisp clear version of it. Channel 4 apologises for Boris ‘people of colour’ video https://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2019/12/channel-4-apologises-for-boris-people-of-colour-video/
  8. Ah, the old "millions must be wrong because they don't agree with me" point of view. There's more to Tories than the rich, ten bob millionaires and "£10 an hour 'Middle Class'" as you put it. Its a shame you can't see that with your blinkered point of view. Chip on your shoulder perhaps, or something else?
  9. It really isn't, its a badly pasted Wikipedia link. Anna has an obsession with mentioning Neoliberalism at the moment, but I don't think she knows quite what it means.
  10. Did he? From 2019: VOTERS FURIOUS AT HOW MUCH CORBYN AND ABBOTT HAVE CLAIMED IN EXPENSES https://politicaluk.co.uk/2019/02/voters-furious-at-how-much-corbyn-and-abbott-have-claimed-in-expenses/ Perhaps you're trying to cite nine year old material? From 2010: Islington North MP Jeremy Corbyn is the country's lowest expenses claimer https://www.islingtongazette.co.uk/news/politics/islington-north-mp-jeremy-corbyn-is-the-country-s-lowest-expenses-claimer-1-748369 As for your "honest man", what was that rubbish he was spouting about the Queen's Speech all about? "I watch the Queens speech" (even though he doesn't like the monarchy) "I watch it in the morning" (no you don't, its not on then) "I watch the repeat" (what before its even been broadcast?) The real story is "old man doesn't know what time of day it is". Do we really want such a bumbling fool as leader?
  11. Very good one for charity on the Severnside Estate, Woodhouse https://www.thestar.co.uk/news/people/i-want-light-woodhouse-best-decorated-house-sheffield-christmas-1332152
  12. Rule 1, when trying to counter accusations of bias, best not to use such a heavily biased rag like The Canary Anyway, in other Labour news: Diane Abbott’s son charged with assault after ‘biting and spitting at police officer’ https://metro.co.uk/2019/12/04/diane-abbotts-son-charged-assault-biting-spitting-police-officer-11268083
  13. Lets face it, he was a joke from day one when he was added to the leader candidate list. If the Tories were suggesting people sign up to Labour for £3 to vote for Corbyn, surely THAT should have set alarm bells ringing?
  14. The popularity for her certainly has dropped sharply.
  15. Half way through Ad Astra, but very impressed so far 7/10. It seems to be getting panned by audiences for being boring, but I found it a decent slow burner, much in the same way as Arrival and Interstellar. The cinematography is stunning, on a par with 2001. Perhaps some people just want low-brow gung ho action shooters.
  16. Ah, the £7000 a year better off. I don't know where they got their figures from, but I can't see energy prices slashed in half. They claim the free broadband will save people £364. I have basic 20Mb Sky Broadband (BT Line) and that's only £19 a month. It goes up to £21 every so often but I play the "i'm going to cancel" game and it gets dropped. The rest is all generic stuff - "expanding free childcare, cutting rail ticket prices, introducing free prescriptions and free school meals" would allegedly would save around £5,500 in total. I don't use childcare I don't need free prescriptions I don't need free school meals In the meantime, I'm sure their financial penalties on the fuel companies and the robbing of the VED pot to pay for trains will mean I pay more.
  17. And that's the typical bile I now see constantly from current Labour voters. Considering the popularity there must have been a lot of "stupid" people in the country back then. Or maybe you're just one of Scargill's dinosaur Socialist Labour lot?
  18. And it won't sink in. In a few weeks time they'll be repeating the same old rubbish again.
  19. It's Sheffield. Capital of the "red rosette on a donkey" country.
  20. I gave it a try today on a Samsung NB30 and found it disappointing. First it couldn't see any wireless networks, not sure if it was because the wifi setting wasn't on (it showed off in the settings, and didn't seem to want to stay on) and wouldn't proceed. When I did a forced continue it just said it would take 20 minutes to complete. No progress bar. When I came back to the machine it wasn't even switched on, it had never installed.
  21. No, we don't. He's not all things to all men like you think. He might be right for you, based on your life, your point of view and the circles in which you operate. And that's what you don't seem to understand. Its like you don't think anyone else's opinion is worthy, especially if it doesn't hold Corbyn in the highest regard.
  22. I'm only watching it because the woodland scenes were filmed a couple of miles away, otherwise I'm pretty underwhelmed like many others. My expectations dropped the second it started and the dulcet tones of Richard Burton weren't used for the opening narration.
  23. It makes you wonder then why he spending so much time going around the country meeting everyday people then, and taking the flak when people are unhappy, such as the flood victims in Yorkshire. Perhaps you're confusing him with Rees Mogg, who has been conspicuous with his absence.
  24. I was in Lincolnshire over the weekend to see the thousands of seals at Donna Nook It was really sad to see all the flooded fields, still an issue over there, despite no longer being newsworthy on TV.
  25. His Sunday night show was required viewing in my house. Always great to end with clips from the Japanese game show "Endurance". I'd strongly recommend reading his two autobiographies of life as a child is Oz, before coming here.
