  1. Only in your fantasy world. "In 2016, the UK economy grew by 2%, slower than the previous two years, which showed growth of 2.2% and 3.1% respectively". https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/jan/26/uk-gdp-figures-2016-brexit-economy "Looking at 2016 as a whole, growth slowed modestly to 2 percent from 2.2 percent in 2015 and 3.1 percent in 2014." http://www.tradingeconomics.com/united-kingdom/gdp-growth ---------- Post added 13-02-2017 at 19:59 ---------- A tendency to justify his arguments by telling easily refutable lies.
  2. The worst drunks on West Street are not evening drinkers but all-day drinkers. They drink on the street rather than in bars. Some are banned from the pubs and bars and anyway can drink more cheaply from supermarkets and off-licences.
  3. Somewhat appropriate for one's meat and two hedge.
  4. Lowedges is often in the press, usually in the court reports.
  5. "May 2, 1964: The first major student demonstrations against the Vietnam take place in New York City. 400-1000 students march through Times Square to the United Nations to protest what was then called "US intervention" in Vietnam. On the same day, more than 700 students and young people march through San Francisco." "May 5, 1965: Several hundred UC Berkeley students march on the Berkeley Draft Board and present the staff with a black coffin. Forty students burn their draft cards." "October 15, 1965: Anti-Vietnam war rallies are held in four U.S. cities, the largest in New York and Berkeley." "April 15, 1967: Spring Mobilization to End the War (MOBE). 400,000 march in Anti-Vietnam War protest from Central Park in New York to the United Nations building. [NYT, 4/16/67] "In San Francisco, 100,000 people march from Second and Market Streets to Kezar Stadium at Golden Gate Park." Etc, etc.... http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/MRC/pacificaviet.html Oh well.
  6. Not strange at all. North Korea doesn't let people in and out in the same way Iran does. It's a closed society. The US would further its own interests by encouraging emigrants from North Korea in order both to weaken the economy and regime and get intelligence on society there.
  7. Me too. It's so difficult to get stuff off shelves when they're constantly moving.
  8. The figures are about the same, mainly due to falling numbers of people killed by cars. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2015/12/17/guns-are-now-killing-as-many-people-as-cars-in-the-u-s/?utm_term=.5d6da8fbf52f
  9. He's also scrapped his signature and is apparently no longer proud to be English.
  10. That's appalling. You're going to see Jools Holland?
  11. "A Ukip MEP has been ordered to pay more than £160,000 in libel and slander damages, and faces an additional costs bill of £196,000..." A tragedy. For her. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/feb/06/ukip-mep-150000-libel-damages-to-labour-mps-rotherham
  12. Public sector institution like the News of The World? "Rupert Murdoch admitted Thursday there had been a "cover-up" of phone hacking at his flagship British tabloid newspaper and apologized for not paying more attention to a scandal that has convulsed his media empire and rocked the British political establishment". http://edition.cnn.com/2012/04/26/world/europe/uk-phone-hacking-murdoch/
  13. Still a Labour gain from UKIP whose support seemingly can't be arsed to get out to vote at a time when UKIP are supposed to be replacing Labour in the north. If they can't do that in Rotherham after the child sex abuse scandal it's a poor showing. ---------- Post added 03-02-2017 at 19:01 ---------- Lib-Dem gain from Labour. Labour gain from UKIP.
  14. He'd still be under-qualified.
  15. For the sake of balance you could have pointed out that in the other Rotherham council by-election yesterday Labour took a seat off UKIP while the Lib-Dems got just 75 votes. That's another direction of votes.
  16. You're not comparing like with like. The 2015 crisis was caused by refugees. Mexicans are not refugees fleeing a warzone but economic migrants looking for work. And they don't walk across borders. They travel legitimately and go through passport and visa controls. They just don't return when they should.
  17. Things have moved on a bit in the last 2,000 years though. Air travel for example. This article shows that illegal immigrants come by air on a visa. They become illegal when their visa expires and they don't return. http://www.forbes.com/sites/adamhartung/2017/01/28/why-president-trumps-border-wall-is-an-example-of-bad-leadership/#58e0634f78fd
  18. He hasn't actually done anything yet apart from sign some orders. One of them is to abolish their version of the NHS. Maybe you prefer someone destroying heathcare quickly than building it slowly. Or maybe you'd like him to grab your pussy quickly.
  19. If you weren't there why do you automatically think a criminal act was committed?
