    I have concerns over your partnership with fin in his business. He promised the world and now seems to deny it, promised company transport and now thinks that telling you to get on your bike, is the same thing but most worrying, is that whilst you will be knocking your socks off to promote his business, he will be sitting in his office with his cat, on the internet leaving you with this as your future partner whilst he talks about men in skirts

  2. not obsessed with it noob, but when i aint too busy idon't mind exposing it. our media reeks of it, its generally accepted that since the the 2007 election they have all been working overtime to discredit the separatists.
    since brexit our media, particularity the BBC have been grossly underplaying brexit because it strengthens the case for indi. these are not the voiced opinions of the snp, they dont have a voice in the MSM, or indeed any Scottish MP. it came from an English lord, probably a remainer who, when intervened, went off script with BBc Scot and tore them new one for pulling the wool over the eyes of their listeners regarding the impact of brexit on Scotland.
    or, i just made it up. meh, who cares.
  3. eh? :confused:

  4. Translated, I'm letting all the paper work pile up for when loz comes into the partnership

    To be fair fin, your lot have provided an awful lot of shoot themselves in the foot moments, sometimes I see things and it makes Trump look like a good politician

    Gladly swap them for our BBC fin, honestly, they act like millennial hipsters who have had their frothymappachino drunk by a non vegan, biased hate mongers down here

    The trouble is when we had old news, there was two or three channels showing it at peak times 9am, 6pm, 10pm and then between we carried out our usual life. Now the market is flooded with 24 hour news sources official and unofficial but more worrying is that there is little diversity because they are focusing in on markets to guaranty advertising.

  6. the trouble is, far too many people now judge their life by the next 5 minutes, the next news update so when something changes, it's a flick of the switch reaction. A bit like credit vs saving cash, some are unable to see the long game.

    Politics seems to be going through the change most people agreed politics needed, but depending what side you are on, it's great/bad. Can you imagine the first industrial revolution happening with today's mindset, or even stepping in to save europe when Hitler went into Poland?

    We as Brits are proving more stubborn than Ireland and Holland when the eu found a way to over turn votes against the eu but Italy gets it and more are starting too

  7. the EU didnt twist their arm, they gave them the opportunity to reflect and stubbornness isnt always seen as a virtue, tho it seems there's a wee divide developing, it seems we, up here are stubbornly sticking to remain while there seems to be a swing to remain on your side. how is May gonna save her party now?

  8. That has to be ONE of the funniest things you've said fin.

    If she thinks the answer to the Irish question is keeping the whole of the U.K. in the customs union, with no date to leave beyond the transition and hopes no one will notice, she won't save the party.

  9. Morning chuckles, you in France yet ?
  10. so, at the mo, if you donate money to a uk political party via N/I the source doesn't need to be disclosed?. seems like they have been taking back control for some time now.
  11. Last time I looked IoM was in the U.K. :astonished::rolleyes:

    And funny how they go after the insurer backer of leave. What about how Data was shared by remain across platforms?:thinkingface:
  12. I believed, happy to be told different, the Isle of Man is like Jersey, the Channel Islands and Gibraltar in that they are independent countries but are U.K. dependencies
  13. The IoM is NOT part of the UK, its a Crown dependency...or tax haven to most people. :D

  15. 48 and learning something every day :upyeah:
  16. I wasn't sure but exi cleared it up on another subject about importing women/bikes from the channel islands
  17. So apparently a leaked memo suggests the deal is essentially agreed but there is currently some pantomime of ongoing disagreement? Watch this space.....

    Mrs May would then claim the Government had “delivered on the referendum” in a speech at the CBI on Nov 19, the same day Mr Raab would announce the proposed deal to Parliament.
    World leaders, including Shinzo Abe, Japan’s prime minister, would be lined up to tweet support for the deal, followed by a week of themed media events, including a visit by Mrs May to Northern Ireland on Nov 24, the day the DUP holds its conference in Belfast.
    The memo says Parliament’s “meaningful vote” on the deal would be held on Nov 27, with MPs told in capital letters: “Historic moment, put your own interests aside, put the country’s interests first and back this deal.”
    Steve Baker, a former Brexit minister, said: “It looks like exactly the kind of back-of-the-envelope post-exit plan to sell a rubbish deal I would have expected. For months we have expected an orchestrated campaign following a fabricated row over the backstop. It’s like you almost can’t be too cynical. That’s not where our politics should be.”
