    Tossers...

    Talked to a Tory MP last night who was backing Johnson
    "Do you think he'd be any good as PM"
    "No"
    "What on earth will he do about Brexit"?
    "No one knows"
    "Why do you want him, then?"
    "He's the best hope we've got"
    "By 'we" you don't mean Britain do you?"
    "No the party, of course"
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

          Companies were sold to shareholders. Shareholders demand profits and generally aren't interested in money being invested in "manufacturing", so sell off and outsource to the cheapest option to keep the shareholders happy and to make sure the funds are there for the pension pots of the board.

          Perhaps the pining is for Victorian days, when women didn't vote, etc. Or maybe it's the idea of harking back to "The War" by people who didn't fight in it and show more support for the axis powers than for the allies.
          "and show more support for the axis powers than for the allies"

          like Jeremy Corbyn, who shows support for those who the UK would consider to be potential enemies, like "our friends in Hamas" etc

            No, I was thinking more like those who claim that "studies have been done that all poor people deserve to be poor and just need to accept it" or whatever it is that you are spouting today.

              It has been said that if all the World's wealth were equally distributed between everyone alive at a certain time, then after a year, there would still be billionaires and sickeningly poor people. This is aptly demonstrated by those who have won the lottery, or similar, and are virtually bankrupt some years later.
              No you do not understand.

              The EU has been a benefit to everyone.

              And if you do not believe that we shall send you for re-education.

              There is no discussion, there is no argument.

                I don't think anyone claims that the EU is the best thing ever, but it is certainly not the cause and 100% to blame for everything that is not perfect in this world. Contrary to the opinions of some.

                  Isn't it an odd feature of this totalitarian state that you describe, that the press is able to freely criticise the EU, even to the extent of publishing falsehoods about the EU?

                    You hide behind that quite a lot, don't you?

                      I didn't say that. However, it doesn't seem to be PC these days to ask why they are poor. You can make up your own mind about that.

                      "whatever it is that you are spouting today"

                      what I'm spouting today is that I guess there are many young people of today who would wish that many of what you might consider to be the "essentials" of every day life today, were relatively cheaper pre EU days.
