Not you though - one sleep later and you revert back to factory settings.


If Brexit doesn't work out I don't think any of us would have a problem admitting it hadn't worked. But we voted to leave so we should leave, calling for a second referendum before we've carried out the first one seems very undemocratic, like you lose but you want a second round.

Bit of a contradiction there Marko, anyway, I thought we were all doomed, the economy was to go into free-fall, unemployment to sky-rocket. Interest rates to rise to prop up the pound. A large black hole awaited us, as it took years to negotiate trade deals.

A brain drain as all our skilled workers left the sinking ship, political turmoil, everything other than the plague and locusts. Privatisation of the NHS, outbreaks of racism and ethnic cleansing in the streets.

Many quoted the 'so-called ' experts (like the IMF) and others like them, what's the next excuse.

It's actually very clever if you think about it 17 million people will probably get themselves one and keep it as a souvenir and never spend it making the treasury the best part of 10 million quid just like that.

They missed a trick there pal not to do a full set with a commemorative case with Farage, Boris, Tommy Robinson and all the others that helped make Brexit happen featured on coins.

They would sell like hot-cakes.


The Brexit coin is a true two fingers up to the EU and for everything that they stand for and therefore it should be a feature on coins for years to come.

But he is right - the Labour party has changed forever. Labour's support now comes significantly from students and the legions of minimum wage workers. One Labour politician said that their voters are the Uber drivers and Amazon and Deliveroo workers who are exploited by major corporations. The issue is that many of these roles are undertaken by recent immigrants to the UK. It is totally right that the conditions of work are fair and the minimum wage is upheld. What Labour sought to do in its manifesto was to transfer wealth from the middle classes and particularly the better off to these newcomers to buy their votes which was unacceptable. Boris's plan of diverting investment to left behind towns while investing in the NHS and schools is a much fairer solution for tackling inequality.

And does anybody really believe that a doctor trained in the Philipines or India is anywhere near as competently or thoroughly trained as one who did 7 years of training here? And that's before you take the language issue into the issue. They are simply a readily available supply of cheap just about qualified to the minimum standard doctors always have been ad always will be.

If I ever get one at the hospital I just apologise and say I can't understand a word he's saying and don't feel safe if you go about it the right way you're in the hands of a white doctor in no time all Bit like when those in the know used to know to ask for "white meat" at KFC

No, no, no, McClusky is the main puppet-master, way above Jezza. His ideals are stuck in Unionism (not Socialism) and fighting for the down-trodden working class, while dining at the Ivy, swalling champers and allowing the Union to buy his £400,000 property (which he paid back allegedly).

Meanwhile trousering his £150k salary while he drags the Labour Party off into the swamp for the next 10 years.

He's a real man of the people Mr McClunky, (you can tell from the stubble on his face) trouble is, he doesn't know which people.

A model Citizen:

"DIANE ABBOTT’S son has appeared in court accused of a string of violent attacks, racially aggravated criminal damage and exposing himself in a hospital ward.

Cambridge graduate James Abbott-Thompson, 28, allegedly assaulted nine people, including five NHS emergency staff, doctors and police, over the last six months.

The attacks are said to have taken place at three London hospitals — the Homerton in Hackney, the Royal Free in Hampstead and Mile End in Tower Hamlets. The last allegedly happened two days before Christmas.

Abbott-Thompson is the only son of shadow home secretary Ms Abbott and Ghanaian architect Richard Thompson.

They divorced a year after his birth following two years of marriage.

The former foreign office high-flier appeared at Thames magistrates’ court in Bromley-by-Bow on New Year’s Eve.

George Gross, defending, said: ‘The defendant proposes to indicate not guilty pleas.’ "

When we have left the EU and we relax some of the onerous regulations that stifle some businesses, make us attractive by keeping taxes for companies low, why wouldn't some companies from the EU want to re-locate here.
