  1. "Brexiteer deliberately misleads/lies to support party over country and advance their own career"... ...far more believeable than the guff West is making up
  2. LOL, only in your head, since you just made that up! Desperate stuff! IDS is now urging the UK government to denounce the WA, so clearly, he didn't "study" it at all... Unfortunately for him, it's a legally binding agreement... doing so will have significant knock on effects for the UK.
  3. Nice try, but no cigar. IDS wasn't one of them! He was one of the main standard bearers and proponents of it, declaring it "Oven Ready" and stating in Parliament: "If there is anything about this arrangement that we have not now debated, thrashed to death, I would love to know what it is" Of course, if he'd bothered to actually read it, and given MPs the time to do the same, he wouldn't be moaning about the "small print" now. Simply, he didn't know what he was voting for... Brexit in a nutshell.
  4. I see we have Iain Duncan Smith complaining on Twitter... ...seems the Withdrawal Agreement he voted for, the one he denied MPs more time to debate in the Commons, isn't what he thought it was. Turns out, he didn't know what he was voting for! Colour me shocked....
  5. Ken Dodd was acquitted of tax evasion
  6. ...because iPlayer is not a commercial entity. You answered your own question. In this case you have no-one to blame but people like yourself. Those, like you, who spend all their time slagging off the BBC and the license fee, but continue to use the service via the iPlayer. Spongers, essentially. The government has rightly closed that loophole. As before, it's "the will of the people" Doesn't matter how you spin it, you can't have it both ways. ...because they're all commercial/subscription based. The distinction is somewhat obvious, it's not rocket science.
  7. He'll be needing the support of Congress Apparently, he's concerned about voter fraud from mail in voting, unfortunately for him, 70% of Americans support voting by mail... https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/509775-poll-70-percent-of-americans-support-voting-by-mail Trump already setup a commission to look into this in 2017... they couldn't find any issue! Trump, of course, likes to vote... by mail
  8. Well if they're evangelicals, they voted for Trump and got a plague... should be easy next time
  9. No, they didn't. The BBC Trust said they accepted the decision "although we cannot endorse the process by which it has been reached"... ...because it was a government edict! The BBC weren't given a choice anymore than someone who has a gun held to their head by persons demanding money. Regardless, the decision was passed to the public, and *they* said "no".
  10. Nonsense. The funding was stopped by the government. The BBC undertook a public consultation over many months to decide whether to fund the free license themselves, it was widely advertised and anyone could take part. The *majority* of the public said the BBC should not continue the benefit. Funny how the "will of the people" is only of any interest to you when it tallies with your view! You can't have it both ways...
  11. Wouldn't be at all surprised. Every time he opens his mouth these days it's to take his foot out of it: https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/508218-press-trump-implodes-on-fox-news-sunday
  12. Unsurprising. 74 journalism professors call Fox News coverage a ‘danger to public health’ https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/fox-news-coronavirus-misinformation-murdoch-letter-public-health-danger-a9443951.html Watching Only Fox News Makes You Less Informed Than Watching No News At All https://www.businessinsider.com/study-watching-fox-news-makes-you-less-informed-than-watching-no-news-at-all-2012-5 Trump and Fox news have a lot of deaths on their hands, no wonder they're trying to pin the blame on *anyone* else https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/mike-pompeo-who-chief-killed-british-coronavirus-victims-q2jppljv7
  13. Colour me surprised! Just watching the Russia Report panel speaking, absolutely damning! Terms like gross incompetance and misconduct in public office seem tame in comparison to what's gone on here.
  14. Indeed, it will inevitably have a negative effect on the recovery from Covid so I think the effects will still be fairly self evident.
  15. Ouch... just in time to miss out on all those Xmas sales... "Whilst Amazon say that the changes will apply from the 1st of January 2021, in reality you might find impacts of the Amazon FBA Brexit bombshell start to impact you earlier. For instance, if you already have stock in Pan-European FBA it is feasible that Amazon will repatriate your stock before the end of the year and certainly are likely to stop sending your stock to Europe at an earlier date. This means that certainly around Christmas, perhaps sooner, your European sales will start to decline." There'll be a lot of businesses going bump pretty quickly.
