Re: The UKAR politics thread

The really important point of discussion is the free school meals, for which it is just idiotic and frankly a bit knobby for anyone with a brain to object to. But on the “unparliamentary language” issue, if I may posit, if one does not wish to be called a scumbag or “scum”, then perhaps they should...

Re: The UKAR politics thread

Y’know, I still think Johnson will scrape some sort of 11th hour deal, where he will likely quietly capitulate everything to the EU, but the simple fact of a deal being had (regardless of what’s in it) will be spun as a win. He’s addicted to theatre, and can’t resist a little 11th hour flourish. Th...

Yep - affecting peoples lives for the worst unless your one of them.

I remember talking to a young tory in a pub years ago he said we always look after our own and you will never see a poor conservative.

Rayner (labour!) has just had to apologise for using that exact word - most definitely unparliamentary language!
Shame they can't all be shown the door - pretty sure this wasn't what people signed up the Tories for - was it?

More disgrace in the commons this evening - the tory (Intentionally wreckless) can't even agree to extend Free meals for children and the poor - disgusting shower of self centered selfish individuals - all of them.

Re: The UKAR politics thread

Scepticism grounded very firmly in reality. The entire election campaign *just* 11-12 months ago was wholly predicated on the "oven ready" Brexit deal that Johnson had organised. They shouted and guffawed that one from the rooftops, and laughed it through Commons in January, and then come September...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Serious question - what will I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! do as they are suppossed to be filming live in Wales, how will that work out? Be a shame if it gets cancelled,😉😄, but if it does it's for the best. Safety first & all that. Reason I ask - they are still showing the ads for it on TV.

It's a common complication isn't it? Much like the 'flu can leave you susceptible to pneumonia if you get it badly or are somehow weakened for other reasons.

And whilst we’re all blaming Johnson, Hancock et al (me included), let’s not forget that the one lockdown that should have happened didn’t - the banning of all travel out of China when this all kicked-off. Let’s hope that the next time any nation on Earth conjures up some disgusting virus, the rest...

It's only true of the other countries if they have that. For example. Belgium has quite a high deathrate I believe because they were counting all deaths were possible covids, whether there was a positive or not.... if symptoms were there then it was put down as covid. I swear I saw something simila...
