3 years today since that bloody referendum
at 11:39 23 Jun 2019

It’s achieved absolutely nothing, and it’s a shame to think of all the issues that we could have put time and money into solving in the meantime.

It’s mad that it’s getting to the point where I’m looking back at the coalition as a golden era.

Mind you, Cameron is easily the worst post-war Prime Minister, he has done more to divide this country than Thatcher.

Why is Tim Martin even allowed on question time?
at 07:31 21 Jun 2019

Just watched the first few minutes of last night’s programme and within 30
seconds he spouted undiluted nonsense.

For example:

1) Claiming No deal would save £39bn when actually that money is about future obligations towards EU projects we have committed to.

2) Claiming we would take back control of fishing, when it’s actually the UK government that sold off our quotas to Dutch firms.


Of course, I understand the need for balance, but why are people allowed to spout untruths without being challenged, only to get invited into the programme again. It’s like the immigration myth that Farage banged on about for years, when actually we can control immigration due to the citizens travel directive. It’s very dangerous that lies like these are accepted as fact, and I’m not usually one for BBC bashing but it’s a disgrace that programmes like QT aren’t fact checked.

Only 7 years ago he was being touted as a potentially good manager at Huddersfield. I realise that everything he’s touched since has turned to sh1t but this is still quite a shock to me, I’d completely forgotten about him.

The EU election results have strengthened my belief in a second referendum.
at 16:28 27 May 2019

But it should be Remain vs No Deal. There is clearly support for both, whereas May’s deal and Labour’s policy are universally unpopular, except among die hard supporters of the main two parties.

And neither side has been willing to compromise in the debate, especially the ERG headbangers who have voted down May’s Deal and simultaneously moaned that nothing has been passed... Despite the fact that May’s Deal is a hard brexit, there seems to be this confusion that no deal and leaving the single market and customs union are the same thing, they aren’t...

However, as no Brexit deal can be voted through parliament, we need to have a rethink. Of course there should be both a remain and Brexit option on there, but by specifying the scenario of leave then we will get a much clearer answer, because, despite what Farage says, there is no mandate for no deal at this point. In 2016, the Vote Leave website said “ taking back control will be a careful change not a sudden step, we will negotiate the terms of a deal before we start any legal process to leave.”

Obviously anyone with a basic grasp of economics can tell that No deal would be a disaster, but it has got a lot of support in the form of Farage’s new private company and parliament cannot agree on anything else. And it would stop the narrative of ‘betrayal’ from the charlatans who put us in this mess, because they would no longer be able to claim that WTO rules is what people want, if they lost.

I can’t see any other way out of this.

Who would you prefer to keep? Harrison for me... I think we could probably get more money for Jackson considering he came for a bigger fee, plus Harrison is proven in L1.

Anyone listening to LBC?
at 11:53 14 May 2019

A bloke just rang in to James O’Brien saying that if we weren’t in the EU, the Manchester Arena attack wouldn’t have happened because he said the EU means we can’t block people from Saudi Arabia (which is a lie ), despite the fact that the bloke who detonated the bomb was born in Manchester. I’ve heard some stupid stuff on there but that’s got to be the worst, along with the woman who rang about Red Passports being synonymous with the Nazis
