Re: Europe - in or out?

Then don't be one and you won't be called one. Also if you won't be sensible, I won't debate you sensibly. I'll just shoot you down like the bloated zeppelin of hot Farage-air you are. I'm not a moron and I have every intention of debating sensibly. What we all must realise ( myself included) is th...

Re: Europe - in or out?

The EU takes money out of taxpayers pockets and gives it back in the form of EU Social Fund bribes. How would AJ like it if the EU took a £5 note out of his pocket and gave him back £2.50p , well that how the EU works. That's just taxation, you moron. I give the Chancellor a chunk of my salary, and...

Re: Europe - in or out?

Having been brought up in one of the most economically deprived areas of the EU, I've seen first hand the benefits that EU membership brings - access to the EU Social Fund, Objective 1 and the ERDF being some of the most important grants that Wales benefits from - with a further £2bn being pumped i...

Re: 2015 UK Election

At the risk of provoking a groan, is it possible that the answer is the dissolving of the political union of the UK so that we can live and trade side by side with separate governments which speak appropriately to the people of each country? The Independence referendum was such a close call. I get ...

Re: 2015 UK Election

UKIP's Nigel Farage was brilliant in last nights BBC election debate. The performance of the other leaders was pure car crash tv. With regard to the remarks that Mr.Farage made about the selection of the audience for the debate, yes its true that a market research group made the initial audience sel...

Re: 2015 UK Election

There's a thought .... Any correlation between rise of UKIP and UK doing crap in Eurovision? You might get the impression that Europe hates us looking at the scoreboard, but no. The only real explanation is the UK not wanting to fully join the party (ie. take the Euro) or even join the party at all...

Re: 2015 UK Election

The performance of UKIP's Nigel Farage in last nights ITV Leaders Debate was in my opinion very good.
The performance of the other leaders was car crash tv.
