Well, not quite summer, but book a week away from the 23rd may at Salou in Spain for myself, Wendy and Alicia. All inclusive with a free pass included for a water park just over a mile away. Will hope to take Alicia to see The Nou camp as it's not to far away. It will be a sentimental holiday for me, as I went there with my late best mate, Iantheholte and another friend back in 1987.
Went to Salou as a kid a few times, and Tamarit, a few miles along the coast Lovely beaches as I recall.

It's not often I shout the F word when watching the news on tv. It's a NO from me.

Where did anyone say that we should leave the EU without a deal. One that would cost the country billions. I thought the deal promised was one that would make money for the country?


Yes, I fear you're right. The ERG are painted by most other parliamentarians as extremists when really they just support leaving the EU in a meaningful way, as the majority voted for (and as promised in the Conservative manifesto). It's neither radical or extreme, it is the UK leaving the EU.
The majority are being betrayed by this nonsense.


Both leaders of leave can not agree.
Gove wants TM deal.
Johnson thinks it is vassalage.


So Davids assumptions do not add up, because there needs to be bi-county/EU deals to trade......take off in those crammed Boeing 777 dreamliners etc etc

Not sure which one of your statements makes me shake my head more, this one or the one about we should welcome back the radicalized terrorist from Syria.


I know the feeling. I often shake my head after reading things on here. At least we're all fans of Rush though, eh?

Regardless of whether you voted remain or leave, MPs are only working towards what they WANT, and not what the majority voted for. I'm now resigned to the fact that we will get a deal as such, but it won't be the proper Brexit that the majority of us voted for.

Thank god for that, chairman of the spector, Owen Jones made mince meat out of both Portillo and Neil the other week.


Hardly!  Calling Poe on this one.

Owen Jones was destroyed - all he had was whataboutery and special pleading.  As usual.

If you want to hear from a gay person with a far better grasp on what liberalism should be about then Douglas Murray is your man.

Let her back in. But she should be compelled


Al-Baqara 256: There is no compulsion in her religion.  It’s in that other Abrahamic book that supersedes the bible.  Change of tack required, perhaps. :)
