  1. More pertinently, it is impossible to deliver a kind of Brexit that will make the people who believe in the dozens of different types of Brexit all happy. And that, in fact, is the history of the last three years.
  2. Wouldnt it make more sense to go to a holiday rental forum or site, or even something Tenerife related?
  3. I'm sure sure coming to an anonymous internet forum asking for advice on medical issues and drugs is a great idea. It's why doctors and chemists exist.
  4. The delicious irony of that result is that the Brexit Party split the Brexit vote and paved the way for the Remain candidate to win. There is an interesting lesson there for political strategists to heed ahead of any upcoming GE.
  5. It’s interesting that everyone has automatically assumed the absent parent is the father. The OP very consciously avoided any indication of that.
  6. So I appealed and it got knocked back. Evidently they have 6 months plus the time taken to reasonably get back a reply from DVLA tonissue it. They got in with a few days to spare. Bugger. I thought of fighting it based on reasonable time passed but in the end it’s £30 and I decided on balance it wasn’t worth it.
  7. I’ve just received a PCN for allegedly driving in a bus lane on 19 January this year. The date of the PCN is 25 July. As i understand it PCNs need to be issued within 28 days of the offence being recorded. The only exception to this if the council applies to DVLA for my details and there is a delay in receiving that information. Then the PCN can be issued 6 months after the offence. It looks to me that my PCN is outside even that six month period and as such I’m going to appeal to get it rejected. I suspect the biggest know it is too late but are banking on us not knowing the time restrictions. Does anyone one have any better information on this?
  8. What does it matter? We live in an age where people simply 'believing' something to be true, makes it true. Anna B, who seems to have a bit of a bent for these nonsense conspiracies, will dismiss today's conviction as some kind of coverup, which, bizarrely, will convince here even more that there is some kind of high profile pedo ring operating. It's today's mindset. Proof no longer matters. People think simply having their stupid ideas makes them necessarily true. Side-note: I posted yesterday about how it is always right wing nutjobs who believe these kind of conspiracy theories. Add this story to the list. I don't know why the far right are so obsessed with pedos and suspected pedos. It's all a bit weird.
  9. There is a community. Try contacting the South Yorkshire Filipino Community Group (Google them). There is also the Pear Thai shop on London Road, which has a huge range of Filipino food and there is always 2-3 Filipinos in there every time I'm in. There is also an active Filipino Society at the University of Sheffield. There is a very active community in Leeds also, with their own Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/filipinoleeds.assn/
  10. It was a Labour Govenment that introduced universit tuition fees. To which you will reply something along the lines of 'blairite, centrist etc etc'. They've certainly hoovered up my formerly conservative remain vote, as well as at least half a dozen former Labour Party members I know, all of whom have resigned their membership in the last six months.
  11. Why is it always the far right who tend to believe all the usual conspiracy theories? Flat earth, fake moon landings, anti vaccers, pizzagate, sandy hook. They are ALL from the nutty far right. Talking of conspiracies, where did the Tommy Two Percent thread go?
  12. The loudest representatives of the democrats are not running for President in 2020.
  13. Sadly there are many. But their anger over the EU insisting our great British kippers have the right kind of ice when being shipped (and not realising it was actually the British Government who wrote that rule) matters more to them than the greatest parliamentary democracy in the world.
  14. Im sure this has been discussed before, but was Theresa May's decision to call a 2017 General election a deliberate political masterstroke and not the mistake we all thought at the time? The 2015 GE delivered a huge Tory majority, one that would likely have had enough Leavers in it to push Brexit through the House. Did she know that and deliberately sabotage her career (and the government) for the sake of what she thought was right for the country by calling an election , perhaps sensing that she might lose her majority and, in the process, make a Leave Parliament a more divided Parliament? Ive never heard that discussed before, but is it totally impossible?
  15. The best thing about this is not so much the 17 who acted like adults, but the 30 or so (higher profile MPs) who abstained and who will of course do what needs to be done when the time is right. They include Ken C and Hammond. Who would have guessed it? The only thing stopping us being forced out of the EU with a catastrophic No Deal is a handful of sensible Tory MPs, prepared to put the country ahead of their own political careers. Good on them, I say.
