1435 pages already, who would have thought it.

Very little input of his own from bilbo.s, only sarcasm and unattributed news articles!

All these protests around Parliament Square for weeks, makes me wonder if the masses in Scotland’s cities are bothered in the slightest!


I know you have already said you don’t like my style of posting but your second paragraph is a bit unnecessary, it’s well below your usual standards and does you no credit.

As for the last bit, we’ll find out soon enough.

What do you think about this poll of your fellow Conservative and (ahem) Unionist party members in England Carmella?

Jagz it’s hard to say. I was never polled so I wonder who these folk are.

I don’t think Scotland should be “ sacrificed” for anything so don’t really like this. A much loved newspaper for me was The Glasgow Herald which offices house The National.

I still haven’t and won’t change my mind, however, about leaving the EU as I said before whether I was not a Conservative or for any other party.

Don’t know if that answers your question or not!

You wouldn't have been polled as it was English Tory party members, and the Herald ran the results of the poll too, the National was only reporting the polls findings.

You may have to drop "Unionist" from your party's name. wink.gif

Would that include the English Tory Party members who flocked to Scotland during The Referendum to tell the Scottish voters that leaving the UK would be leaving the EU?

You will when we've regained our independence, you will probably have to drop the toxic "Conservative" name too, we could have a competition to come up with a name for the new right of centre party.

I'll go first, how about 'The Fluffy Party'? laugh.gif

On the lighter side.Just seen on facebook that the police have a new plan to get rid of the protesters, they are erecting a pop up job centre.

It is needed big time. Heard on the news tonight something that disgusts me, the cost of policing these events is around 32 million pounds, and that’s not all, the police officers who were brought in from other areas to assist the Met officers were also put up in hotels because they had to have somewhere to rest, so once all the hotel bills get added to that, it will be substantially more than the 32 million.

The annual budget for crowd control for the entire Met area is 15 million annually.

Officers being used from areas where they are needed, for the people and at such a cost disgusts me.

As someone said once “get a job”👎

So there we have it! Marchers/ protesters/ demonstrators etc.are all unemployed, unwashed riff-raff, causing no end of trouble and expense to the taxpayer, not to mention embarrassment to the government. Perhaps they should be shot, or at least imprisoned.

Apologies to that sweet old lady, Carmella, for the lavish use of sarcasm.
