  2. I suppose nothing we did not really know,the vast majority of all mps, are liars who cannot be trusted,they are just out to look after themselves, line their own pockets and do not listen to the electorate who pay their wages.

    I understand you chips but I am totally ashamed of the Government and Parliament.

    I'm ashamed that our country allowed this to happen.

    Yep, I've had the same thought on many occasions over the last couple of years, but, I do believe that Brexit will be delivered... eventually, despite the efforts of the fanatical remainer MP's to overturn the result of the largest democratic participation this nation has witnessed for generations.
    They deride him and mock his character whilst at the same time unwittingly sowing the seeds for the, UK's very own 'Trump spring'.
    The 'Troll' had a point, you will vote again and this cabal of shysters we've got at the moment can't see it coming.

    Speaking as someone who worked in the media all of my working life, in "News" for over 25 years, and specifically at parliament for about 4 years, (over several stints), I can assure you that really is not true of the vast majority...

    Yes, there are some who are nasty pieces of work.
    Yes, there are some who are, frankly, not the smartest...

    Take any bunch of 650 employees and you will find that is the case.

    There are 650 MPs... How many can you name, or do you know? I bet out of the current 650 there are probably 500 that have never been on the national telly who most of us don't know.

    I encountered loads of then over the years. I say confidently that the vast majority, of all political shades, red, blue yellow, green or otherwise, are decent, hardworking folk who genuinely want to do public service and give something to society.

    That may be an unpopular opinion... But as I said before, that's based on personal experience of encountering them on a regular basis over a long time.

    None of that means I agree with what many of them do!

    Sorry, I was talking about who ever it is you are hero worshiping, the one who's character is being mocked.

    I think it's up to all of us to to actually vote, whatever that vote may be for.

    I'm fairly shure i mentioned it in another "brexit thread" but the thing that has taught me most about Brexit is the absolute dire quality of our top civil service. Let's face it, 99% of any negotiations are done by civil servants, not politicians. I put it down to top civil servants over the 40+ years have been so dragged into the EU itself that they are completely unable to just act in the UK's best interest because there entire working life has been intertwined with the EU, because they just don't know how to. Plus of course they have always looked forward to early retirement with a nice fat pension, only then to move onto the EU civil service for a few years with an even bigger pension at the end.

    That it really wasn't a simple yes/no question.

    The civil servants did their best bearing in mind that their political masters were morons.

    I think I could name over 150 and probably just identify them from their voices, some of which are very irritating.

    The Ukraine are about to elect only one comedian to their Parliament, we have a house full!

    "Current leader Petro Poroshenko, 53, is seeking re-election but the surprise front-runner is 41-year-old comedian Volodymyr Zelenskiy. Both, along with former PM Yulia Tymoshenko, 58, have expressed largely pro-EU views during the campaign.1 day ago

    If they were comedians they would be funny more like scary clowns.

    They can be our replacements when we leave!:)

    Seriously, letting these eastern European countries in the EU with their low wages and living standards was when it all started to go wrong for the EU.

    The official EU funding list as at 29th March shows we receive only 38p for every £1 we pump into Brussels, Guess who gets the best return on every £1 they put in, it's none other than Luxembourg that gets £34.04p, yes, £34.04 for every £1 paid in. Is it a co-incidence that Luxembourg is J P Junker's territory?
