  1. The Lady is for U-Turning She's a mess She took a gamble and lost it But refuses to acknowledge it And it's not just the social care bill backtracking (never mind she kept trotting out her "building a fairer Britain" rethoric since her appointment last July) It's also the appalling and evasive way she's shown in dealing with Brexit Happy for Corbyn
  2. Thanks! Yikes Scary This over reliance on technology and scientific advancement can take a wrong turn if not applied to good purposes
  3. https://www.ft.com/content/78a40520-e8fe-11e8-885c-e64da4c0f981 Pound sees worst day since June 2016 vote The British pound hit session lows against the US dollar and euro following media reports UK environment secretary Michael Gove would resign on Thursday. That undid a brief recovery for sterling after UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s pledge she would see through her deal to take Britain out of the EU. Even before Mrs May spoke, the pound was nursing drops of more than 2 per cent against the buck and the euro, which was vying to be its biggest one-day drop since the Brexit vote back in June 2016. Against the dollar, the pound was down as much as 2.1 per cent at $1.2724, while against the euro, it fell as much as 2.1 per cent to €1.1251. Wall Street remained relatively unmoved following Mrs May’s speech and was down 0.1 per cent in lunchtime trade in New York.

    Please people don't fall into the trap of thinking that one particular religion is more "obsessed" or violence prone than another. It's pure BS. The Judeo-Christian "rich" "free" West has been bombing the living shit out of helpless civilians in the entire Middle East region for almost the past 20 years now. But actually from before if you want to go a little bit before 9/11 They call it "Democracy Exportation" and it's the biggest lie to justify geopolitical engineering and global self assertion and repositioning. Violence just breeds further violence, period. And that's not to talk about colonialism, entire continents being raped and emptied of all their resources, the slave trade, people disappearing in South America, Jewish families handed over to the Nazis by the Church in 1940s Italy, endemic and systemic paedophilia at the highest levels of society etc. Let's not be hypocritical about this. There is nothing pacific or democratic about Christianity at its political core with its institutions and how they operate through politicians throughout the world

    👍 Terrible terrible news @Jazzy Jan
  6. The whole world is on a terrible dumbing down trajectory. That and the entire politically correct movement. More distractions thrown into the mix to deflect from the real issues

  8. 👍 And they keep pumping money into this dictatorship. It makes zero sense whatsoever, except it does once you understand the real agenda of the Western world. Saudi Arabia and Gulf countries, Israel, the US and its toxic ties with them, the support and protection they receive from the British Royal Family, the Vatican, the all time worst. Meanwhile they want you to believe that Assad is bad because Syria stands in the middle in their little game against the rising power of the East of the world. Give me a fucking break. Look what's going on in Yemen, yet nobody is talking about it People need to wake up as fast as they can and realise what's actually going on in the world. AL Qaeda and ISIS are tools to serve a purpose, and it is not the purpose of some disgruntled loner fanatic group. They are and have been too well funded and strategically placed to begin with. Divide et Impera. Old Roman Empire tricks

  10. UK's third largest party 'will back second Brexit vote' Scotland's first minister Nicola Sturgeon has said that her party would undouctedly support a second referendum on the UK's membership of the European Union, if the matter was taken to a vote in the house of Commons. She suggested, however, that the Scottish National party would seek a guarantee that Scotland would not be forced to accept the terms of any Brexit deal if the country once again voted to remain in contract to the rest of the UK. Speaking on the 's Andrew Marr show, Sturgeon said: "Our bottom line is membership of the single market and the customs union. I cannot envisage the SNP MPs voting for something that doesn't contain that. Don't forget Scotland voted overwhelmingly to remain in the EU." Her comments came as up to a hundred thousand people marched through Edinburgh on Saturday calling for Scottish independence. It's one of a number of recent events, organised by the pressure group All Under One Banner, which have been taking place across the country. The marches coincide with the start of the SNPs annual conference in Glasgow. The renewed calls for independence will be encouraging for the SNP, although Sturgeon feels that these are driven by confusion over Brexit. “I will set out what I think the next steps are when we are at the end of this phase of negotiations,” Sturgeon told Marr. “The future EU-UK relationship is the context in which Scotland would decide that question of independence, so it will shape some of the answers to questions people have." The SNP is the third largest party in Westminster and as such would have significant sway in any knife-edge vote on a second referendum or final Brexit deal.

  13. European council president Donald Tusk has destabilised Theresa May's Brexit plan after saying on Thursday it "will not work". Mr Tusk's damning statement in Salzburg comes as European leaders have ramped up the pressure on the Prime Minister, despite her insistence her Chequers deal is the only route to an agreement. May's plan involves keeping parts of the single market after Britain leaves the European Union but she has been told it cannot be cherry-picked. Mr Tusk said of the so-called Chequers proposals: "the suggested framework for economic cooperation will not work, not least because it risks undermining the single market." He also set an alarming deadline for the Prime Minister saying, "The moment of truth for Brexit negotiations will be the October European Council. In October, we expect maximum progress and results in the Brexit talks."
  14. Awful Why would anyone do that?
