  1. Britain has a pro-business government that fails to ensure the workforce and future workforce is adequately educated and trained, can't keep the workforce healthy and is taking woefully little action on climate change and technological innovation. They are so incompetent from a capitalist perspective that some in business would now prefer the "dangerous Marxist". I can't remember anything like this.
  2. Not very well, mainly because Britain hasn't had a functioning government in the last 3 years!
  3. While I agree with quite a bit of this, and note that you don't blame the migrants themselves for this exploitation like some do, I think it's naïve to think leaving the EU will change anything. If the market wage for the least skilled jobs tops £10 an hour due to labour shortages then just about any government, especially a Tory one, will allow enough migration to bring wages down, because all governments just do the bidding of business, including Labour ones.
  4. Given that the Tories have had almost three years to sort this out and failed, it's a bit much to claim that Corbyn, who was asked to help out about three days ago, is "holding it up"
  5. And he must have known he was lying while he was doing it. People like him really are swine.
  6. By saying "how we left" you acknowledge that it wasn't a binary answer. But Cameron had tied himself into a binary question because he'd promised an "in/out" referendum to placate Tory MPs who were starting to defect to UKIP. It was such an ill-worded referendum because it wasn't primarily about if or how the UK would leave the EU, it was only held in order to keep the Tory party from infighting, in which goal it has been a total failure.
  7. Whether people believe they were well informed is irrelevant to whether they were well informed though, because you don't know what you don't know. How many people who voted knew the main implications of the Belfast Agreement, for example?
  8. The problem with that poll, as you'll note, is that leaving with a deal isn't one of the options that people were given, therefore it's not a useful poll
  9. Isn't it mind blowing that while Dominic Raab was trying to negotiate the UK's exit from the EU, he hadn't even read the Belfast Agreement. It's not even a long document, it's only 35 pages long.
  10. Amazing, isn't it? Although I have to wonder whether they just want Labour to shoulder some of the blame rather than actually help them out. It's the Tory way, to always find someone else to blame.
  11. So May's new plan is to sit down with Jezza to agree a deal that can get through parliament. It's going to be difficult for the Tories to claim that Corbyn would be a nightmare in government if they are effectively including him in their government because they can't govern.
  12. Hilarious to see Failing Grayling threatening to quit his ministerial job if May accepts a customs union. Such a threat - imagine having to let him go: the pain! The agony!
  13. You sure? Car Boot displays the blend of nationalism, socialism and faux workerism associated with a very different ideology
  14. So, it must be soon that the German car industry saves the day for the UK, surely? Like when Gandalf arrives at Helm's Deep when it's all looking hopeless: "Look to my coming at first light on the third day" - bloody hell, that's about 6 a.m. tomorrow! Instead of horses they'll ride in on BMW F 850s, shouting "We need you more than you need us!"
