Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

Was followed very closely this morning by a Peugeot van. So closely that the tiny word Peugeot on his grille was clearly visible in my grubby rear window.
Reading it in the mirror made me smile, as my silly head read it as 'Toe Goop'. Very fitting, I thought.

(No apologies to any Peugeot lovers out there.)

Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

I am not going to overtly defend any party but blaming May very much over brexit or likely outcome is like blaming the guy tasked with digging a fat ball out of a sewer for getting dirt on their clothes and making it their fault that they smell of ****.

I'm surprised they didn't create a cross-party team to do the deal.
Also, why not challenge the Brexit supporters to present their plans, surely they had them all in place before the vote?

Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

I think the real problem is that nobody knows the answers to political and social problems in the world. Or what to spend a limited budget on - I mean there will always be needs un-met and unhappy people crying from some perspective.

I do think everybody criticising May should realise just like themselves, she doesnít know the 100% god given perfect solution. Because it doesnít exist.

Itís going to be messy. Some people will agree wit some points and disagree with others.

But, bottom like, itís what the majority voted for and the uncertainty of leaving is as vast as the uncertainty of staying and how that also could have resulted badly.

Good? bad? who knows?

The negotiators at the EU would run rings around Corbyn and would stitch him up while he was still looking round for instructions from those who pull his strings (Milne, Lansman, McDonnell & Chakrabarti)
He did'nt spend 32yrs on the backbenches because he's a quick-witted and astute political genius and they're well aware of that.
He want's out of the EU, mainly because it stands in the way of his vision of a "people's republic of GB" which would include a raft of regulation, control, enforced social change and nationalisation that even Brussells would baulk at.

That's enough politics, it's a cold but glorious morning, I'm off for pedal.

Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

I must admit, I always got the impression that Corbyn was always against Brexit, and wanted the UK to remain part of the EU.

I had a load of holiday left to use by the end of the year, so I was able to get next week off as well as Xmas week.
