Nah, just a punctuation mistake, I suspect.

I thought of this thread when I saw that the Ocford Dictionary word of the year is:
"Post-truth"...

Quote:
It is defined as an adjective relating to circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than emotional appeals.

We should just trigger article 50, close the borders and get out.


This is so na´ve it's untrue.

Close the borders?

Do you actually mean that?

Used an NHS service recently?

Just trigger Article 50?

Do you mean that?

What will post-EU UK look like?

Forget the NHS what about the agribusiness and food processing sectors?!?!


Plenty of bone idle natives sitting around smoking weed all day that could do them jobs. They'd have no excuse and the rest of us wouldn't need to give them handouts anymore.

Though didn't he say close the borders? I didn't see him suggesting mass repatriation? Did I miss it?


He did say close the borders and not repatriation, correct.

But I said "recruitment stream", i.e. replacing that those that leave through natural workforce wastage. Seven years to train a doctor, innit.

Details, matey boy.

As for the "idle natives smoking weed" - I don't think they're going to be a doctor any time soon.


I know it's hard to believe BICH, as you're the centre of the universe and all that, but I wasn't replying to you. I was replying to Nemo and his comment about chicken stranglers, carrot pullers and strawberry pickers. That I quoted him should have been the clue. Wink


You also quoted me, chummy.

But you're right about me being centre of the universe.

I give you 'gas giant' status.


Nemo quoted you, I quoted Nemo. GBIYB!

infact given the National Living Wage and the 5 year plan to rise this well in advance of inflation you can expect some major knock on effect on supermarket prices in the near future.


A point lefties don't understand very well. Glad you brought it up.

Raise the minimum wage and you raise the cost of things produced or serviced by those on minimum wage and so raise the cost to the end user.

Those on minimum wage are therefore no better off as their purchasing power remains static. Those with proper jobs and fixed incomes are now worse off.

So no one is better off, but the majority are worse off. The normal consequences of socialism then...

I wouldn't worry about inflation not going up - Brexit or at least the threat of will take care of that.

Your weekly shop next year will represent the price of a weekend break!

So we keep being told, but there's no evidence of it yet. In fact, it's heading the other way at the moment. Laughing Laughing

This time next year Rodders...

Just to revive the original point.. it's basically the same question in a different guise..

scratch

Can you imagine how our media would have responded if Jean-Claude Juncker - before he had even taken over the role of President of the European Commission - suggested to the UK, who he would like us to appoint in a senior diplomatic capacity... just to make him happy.

So... how come that bloke who always told us that the independent sovereignty of the UK Parliament was being undermined by the EU... seems to think that it is acceptable for the US President Elect to suggest who we appoint in the role of International Statesman...?

1.2%, the highest since... October 2014.

In historical context, thats not really anything to be concerned about and its hardly sending us towards a time where "Your weekly shop next year will represent the price of a weekend break!" Laughing
