Always the same answer, but historical posts don’t tell lies, you have said many things, the stuff I bullet pointed, as if they have or are happening now.

2017 is happening now.

You have said the exodus of EU Nationals is happening now...

Saying ‘Brexit has happened yet’ is a bit of a cop out.

Btw it’s not brexit that’s causing slow growth, it’s the uncertainty surrounding Brexit that is, because of the delay tactics being done to stop a Democratic decision.

Tulip Siddiq seems happy to intervene to help some people but not others. I wonder why...

She seems to have a very poor memory when it suits.

The Government borrowing any more money could cause the UK's economy to collapse in the same way as Venezuela's, a senior Bank of England official has warned.

Richard Sharp, a member of the Bank's Bank’s Financial Stability Committee, claimed an extra £1trillion had already been borrowed since the 2008 financial crisis.

Mr Sharp claimed that taking any more cash could see UK ending up like Venezuela, which has been thrown into turmoil by its economic crisis, The Times reported.

The stark warning comes days after Philip Hammond announced a £25 billion spending spree in the Budget.

It's likely to dissuade the Chancellor from loosening the purse strings too far, since the Bank rarely comments on Government finances.

It could also come as a wake up call for Labour, which is advocating borrowing an extra £250 billion.

If our current borrowing during "austerity" is untennable then Labour's plans must be reckless.

Quote:
A former Scotland Yard detective has told BBC News he was "shocked" by the amount of pornography viewed on a computer seized from the Commons office of senior Tory MP Damian Green.
Neil Lewis examined the device during a 2008 inquiry into government leaks and has not spoken publicly before.
He said "thousands" of thumbnail images of legal pornography were on it.
Mr Green, Theresa May's deputy, has said he never watched or downloaded pornography on the computer.
But Mr Lewis said a check of the computer's internet history over a three-month period showed pornography had been viewed "extensively".

..."The computer was in Mr Green's office, on his desk, logged in, his account, his name," said Mr Lewis, who at the time was working as a computer forensics examiner for SO15, the counter-terrorism command.
"In between browsing pornography, he was sending emails from his account, his personal account, reading documents... it was ridiculous to suggest anybody else could have done it."
Another Minister whose days are numbered. None of what he's alleged to have viewed is illegal, but how come they have so much spare time to do it ? They need to check whether some of these ministers actually do anything.

Re: Government & Post Election Discussion

If the misdemeanour don't get you the cover-up will.

Wait 'til May has to say he has her fullest confidence. Then you'll know he's doomed.

Re: Government & Post Election Discussion

Morgan Stanley, attacked Corbyn stating A Corbyn led Labour Government is more dangerous than Brexit. Corbyn has rebuked this attack by saying, they will be dangerous because the current banking system is ‘rigged’ for the few.

When was it ever different? HMG is saddled with massive debt repayments inherited from Labour as will be the next government. Labour's stock answer appears to be to spend more...

Quelle surprise. When it suits bankers are their best friends and we need to protect them from Brexit damage, then they play the greedy bankers card yet again. Pathetic.

There's a good many people who're truly deluded about what Corbyn and McDonnell (via Seumas Milne) represent. God forbid they ever get to learn the hard way.

The pound will drop substantially if Corbyn walks through number 10.

It hasn't got that much further to drop Mick, thanks to the Brexit effect.

At least you are starting to implicitly acknowledge that Brexit is dangerous. If the Government doesn't get its act together over Ireland then we will get a chance to see if Morgan Stanley is right!

I’m not implicitly acknowledging it, I’m quoting what Morgan Stanley are saying.

Have you taken a look at what happened to the currency in Venezuala? That's Corbyn's model, it would appear.

Dangerous, Andrew? Is this Project Even More Fear?

Perhaps we should tell all those countries who are not in the EU how much danger they are in. Ridiculous!

Re: Government & Post Election Discussion

This is a bit of a strange situation. We now have two police officers making these allegations. I imagine the Sunday newspapers will have something to say about it tomorrow. I guess at worst, Green may have broken some codes of conducts in the past but why are these policemen highlighting it now?
Quote:
David Davis made clear he was ready to quit the Cabinet if Damian Green was unfairly fired over allegations of porn and inappropriate behaviour, it was revealed today.
Sources said the Brexit Secretary had “put his cloak around” the embattled Mr Green in an effort to toughen Theresa May’s resolve to defend her deputy.
The disclosure came as a retired Scotland Yard detective alleged that “thousands” of pornographic images were found on Mr Green’s computer in 2008.
