Yes, when those GG members who wanted us to remain in 2014, and most of them who wanted us to vote for separation from the EU in 2016 and who wished for a Tory majority in 2019, why are they not on here shouting from the rooftops how stupid we were not to believe them? unsure.gif

Of course people will still vote for them, they have been conditioned all their lives to accept that they're inferior and need looked after by their generous benign Westminster leaders, i did mention to one of our GG Tory members that Johnson and Co could throw her family out on to the street, set fire to her house, shoot her dog and come the next election she'd still vote Tory.


Looks like your theory has been proved correct in Hartlepool unsure.gif

Incredible, Mrs Jagz comes from that area and can't believe how that part of the North East of England has turned to the Tories, it'll all end in tears. yes.gif

I have a good friend from Rotherham married to a Greenock girl and living in Ayr. He is more determined than I am that Scotland should be independent and my phone has been ringing constantly with each SNP victory announcement
We have been asset stripped by Westminster Tory and Labour governments and freedom cannot come quick enough.

I know, what ever happened to their 350 million per week for our NHS that was on the side of bus, or why isn't Johnson dead in a ditch?

They really are worse than children, picking up their ball and tripping over their big petted lips on the way home.

And i'm sure Carmella will be incandescent with rage, after all the hard work she and her fellow Brexshit separatists did to deny their children and future generations the opportunity to visit and work freely in 27 EU countries and this is how they thank them. wink.gif

Unlike Danny i'm sure she'll be able to give many examples of how our lives have improved since we separated from the EU...Won't she? unsure.gif

Well, as the dust kinda settles, a couple of things to be thankful for. Firstly the people of Scotland were not taken in by the Prat-in-the-hat, George Galloway. Thanks also to Alex Salmond for filtering out those individuals whose unrealistic ambitions for the independence process probably placed a referendum in jeopardy. His true colours have since emerged, so perhaps it's time he retreated quietly into the background.

Onwards and upwards thumbup.gif

An example of how my life has changed since the finalising of Brexit is that I have now lost my previous "indefinite residence" status as a citizen of a member state of the EU living in Germany.
It's only a crumb on the bedsheet of course but it now means that I have to apply for a new resident's ID card on August of each year. The card carries a biometric picture of the holder and the photo must include a minimum
of 80% 0f the, unsmiling, face. The guy who took the picture must have read that as a maximum of 80% because the photo excludes hairline, ears and a bit of chin leaving an image of a bawfaced miserable auld jooker: all my previous IDs; social security card, driver's licence, resident's permit etc.,) still bore those nice photies of yours trully fron 35 years ago tongue.gif
The good thing is that I have to change it again (at a cost to me of another 37) and this time I'll make sre that my hair and ears are in the picture and I'll crack a wee grin to knock a couple of years of and not look like a grumpy ol' geezer on the replacement.
So thanks to Brexiteers I now have an additional 37 expence.
Not that I'm complaining (much) but it's 12 sausages a year less for Dylan, Carmella, know what I mean pal? tongue.gif

That's a shame Tomi, and you a poor, err, elder statesman like masel' tongue.gif

After all the fun last week with the French fishermen in the waters around Jersey, and the embarrassment of the UK government sending gunboats to the area, just wait to see what happens when the UK tries to impose the same licence restrictions on EU fishermen rolleyes.gif

Just a further thought on the post election performance of the leader of the Tory branch office in Scotland. He said of the FM, no mention of improving the NHS, no mention of improving education, no mention of employment.

So what exactly has he and his cohorts been banging on about over the past year, nothing except stop indyref 2. What a clown.gif yes.gif

Saw this in the FT this morning wink.gif
"Post Brexit deals scotch freeport tax benefits for trade with 23 countries"
Emily Thornberry:
QUOTE
I fear that manufactures in towns, cities and regions across our country who have succeeded in bidding for freeport staus risk missing out on access to key markets

Freeports are set up to allow companies to receive components and ingredients from abroad without paying any duties including tarifs, vat or excise duties ... but busnessies that enjoy the advantages will be obliged to pay tarifs when exporting finished products to any of the 23 countries in question.

See that small print rolleyes.gif

Talking about clown.gif 's, I see that "I saved the world" Gordon"The Vow" Brown thinks he still has some clout when it comes to sorting out Scotlands future. He does of course, with the same voting rights as the rest of us.

Meanwhile I suggest he should haud his wheesht rolleyes.gif
