Of do fuck off Mike, you are intelligent enough to know it wasn't a lie just a simple mistake of little or no consequence when it comes to the inherent truth that a Corbyn government would be less economically left wing than any Conservative government from the end of WWII to 1979. So the idea that he is some sort of marxist is fucking stupid.

Caramba and Toby may be young enough and/or stupid enough to believe that craziness, you aren't.

Well if I can glad about one thing it is that I made Dougie waste an afternoon trying to cut and paste a picture of my face onto a picture of a climber.

Seriously you silly sausage I am not worth getting this obsessed over, it isn't good for your metal health.

So who is the winner in this scenario we have now? I know that chaos creates opportunity and I can't help but wonder who is profiting from these particular winds of change.

Did David Cameron get a big cash prize from nefarious interests for bringing it up in the first place?

Are there politicians involved in it who have a bright future ahead of them? Even if the public has lost faith in them, will they get payout in their new positions as business consultants?

Or is this whole thing a mess of unintended consequences that no one could have predicted?

Well that is the question isn't it?
There certainly seems to be a minority who favours seemingly on ideological grounds the exit from Europe although there have been reports of people donating to the leave campaign betting against UK economy on the financial markets. They seem to be the biggest winners so far although things and alliances change quickly.
I have the feeling they have sacrificed any political career for short term gain and not all of them can afford it.

The winners are disaster capitalists and hedge funds who will be making large bets on the UK economy tanking post Brexit. And those people appear to have a lot of sway in the Tory Party and largely own it now.

Of course some MPs are disaster capitalists and hedge fund managers, Jacob Rees Mogg for one.

Farage seems to be getting excited about the European elections in a few months. Preparing to stand of article 50 is kicked further down the road.

Anyone would think he was happier making a twat of himself and collecting a salary for just spouting bollocks.

If anyone is interested Corbyn put forward a amendment the other day which included a customs union and a second referendum and almost the entirety of the Conservative party voted against it.

Not that you'd know from following this in the MSM.

All those things that Centrists are demanding were in that amendment and yet it was voted down because to them Tory Party unity trumps everything.

A classic attempt at deflection, your calling out my use of the perfectly accurate description 'a dozen and more' as the equivalent of your claiming something and then making up imaginary posts to support it would be laughable if it wasn't so sad.

Copehead wrote:
The idea that the tweet I posted, when it is on my time line for anyone to look at, is imaginary is your best descent into irrational lying and delusion yet



Your suggestion that it is somehow the duty of posters here to double-check your timeline is even more delusional.

When another poster here did take time to check your twitter feed, the only "proof" they found was a fact-free repetition of your original claim.

You really are an asset too my enjoyment of this board, if it wasn't for laughing at your attempts to engage in coherent thought then I'd probably be visiting more infrequently than I already am.



So glad to hear that my posts are brightening your day, although sad to hear that you are spending less time on BCB.

Is this because the boys and girls at Labour HQ are going to parachute you in to Peterborough to replace the equally Pinnochio-like Fiona Onasanya following her jailing for perjury? If so, good luck.

Despite being responsible for the whole mess, the loathsome Cameron has indeed got his mitts on a big cash prize as a result of Brexit

Since leaving office, he's apparently earned trousered something like £750K - a lot of it for giving speeches during which he's shared his "expert" insights on leadership, etc,

You can't pervert a number with statistics.

It's Corbyn speak.

It doesn't matter what you say, what is important is that you say it in a dismissive, belittling, patronizing and sneering manner. The idea being that your superior tone will make your opponent back down. As used widely by the SNP ( worked well for them) and now the preferred tone of the metropolitan elite and Welsh tax dodgers.

So May spent all days yesterday discussing with Brady and others who supported his amendment exactly what amendments they would like to see to the backstop. It seems they offered up the exact same amendments that the EU had previously turned down (a time expiry deal, new technology etc).

So we're basically going to have the PM of this country going back to the EU to ask for things they have already refused, and which May had previously moved on from as unachievable.

Yes.

We Know.

We all read and/or listen to the news in it's various formats and sources of choice.

I'm truly at a loss to know why you persistently and regularly do this as if you're coming out with some entirely novel and profound analytical insight into the whole sorry debacle.
