Life's full of mysteries...such as why does cliff ton keep changing his profile photo to the same one he's had for months?

 

I was wondering if anyone might've noticed, even though it was only there for a few seconds ;).  You weren't supposed to be looking !

 

At risk of revealing inside information, I was carrying out a few tests for Ben in connection with his new photo.

We get the opportunity to change our Govt. at least every five years.  So, if we realise we elected the wrong lot, or they aren't living up to promise, or whatever.. we get the chance to change them. That's democracy. 

 

The 'leave means leave' position seems to be based on the idea that we've had a narrow victory for leave, but even though it's been demonstrated that the promised Unicorns, NHS Dividend, halt to immigration etc., will not materialise.. and it is actually very economicaly damaging to leave the EU without some sort of trade deal..  three years in.. we are still expected to 'just leave' and we aren't allowed another democratic choice?  Really?

And I though that political discussions were not permitted here ?

No matter which way you voted in the 2016 Brexit Referendum the subsequent negotiations with the EU have clearly shown that our country is run by a bunch of absolute stinkers and talentless wassocks who should not be allowed out unsupervised.

It is a great shame that Neville Chamberlain is no longer with us as he may have been able to get a piece of paper from the German Chancellor rather than the five million page handcuff Theresa May was able to secure.

It's true our Govt. hasn't exactly covered itself in glory.  What concerns me much more however is the number of people who take the view 'Just leave.. it'll be alright..'   Trust me.  It won't. We no longer have an empire, any influence or military power to speak of, much industry or anything else.  Out of the EU we are a 'busted flush', waiting to be pushed around by Russian and Chinese gangsters and a racist misogynist 70+year old spoilt child in the US.

 

Yep, we'll have taken back control alright... :wacko:

Whatever side you take, I can't understand how  the future prosperity of our country and the well being of its people can be 'boring'.

 

Endless football is boring. Televised Golf is boring.

 

I'd also add that whatever anyone feels about my posts, or Phils, or most others here, they do not descend into personal abuse such as has been seen on here recently.

From what I gather political discussion is not allowed after a vote by members. That was apparently some years ago and by people who for the most part no longer post.

Like the Brexit leavers would have it one vote casts the decision in stone. The result can never be questioned, challenged or asked again  - really? that's democracy is it?

 

The problem is a rerun is likely to be close and even if the decision changes we will still have a divided forum/nation with one side saying "ya boo suck it up and live with it" and the losers crying foul  we want another go..

Why don't you move this thread to "My Hobbies "or "Private members only discussion" and away from "Hows your day"

As I've said some months ago, we're mostly of a similar age, and are totally entrenched in our political views and opinions, and our take on life in general. If like me, most folks formed their views as they progressed through their teens, or earlier.

No amount of cajoling will change people's opinions , but good debating, backed with facts is beneficial to all. 

Infantile quips and fabricated rants are no good to anyone.

I agree Fly, move the thread to Private members discussions instead of letting the world see that we don't get on with each other because of political differences

In the next day or so, I will start a new thread for politics in "Private Members Only Discussions" .

 

Once it's up and running, if anyone posts anything political anywhere else, I will automatically transfer it to that new thread.

 

I, for one, will never actually look at it.

Good idea! I wouldn't fall out with anyone because of their political views. I like to hear the debate from both ends of the political spectrum.  I hold rightish wing views on some topics but I can be quite socialist when it comes to such things as privatisation of basic industries. I've always thought that a sensible compromise can be reached through sensible and considered discussion. I don't hold with either political or religious dogma. I'm usually right though. :biggrin:
