    The bloke is a complete moron BC and a standing joke around the World I'd guess. How on earth an idiot like him becomes the leader of anything is totally beyond me. You wouldn't leave him in charge of a lift button would you let alone a nuclear one. He didn't even make his own fortune that was daddy.

    I think it's time to bring the military in .....and shoot all our MP's after todays pantomime show.....that of course will leave only Sinn Fein.....because they've always refused to come, because it means that they would have swear an oath to the Queen.

    Why do MPs just carry on lying when it is so blatantly obvious they are? I have watched the Corbyn insult a load of times now and he absolutely definately without any shaddow of doubt says "Stupid woman". Even though it's patently obvious he still says he didn't. The Speaker also denies it is "proved". God help us is all I can say. It's not as if it really matters that much so why lie. All he has to do is say "sorry" and move on. Nah, can't do that it's far to easy. Lets just lie and let it rumble on into a major catastrophe. These are supposed to be intelligent people. Why are they so stupid? No, I didn't say stupid. Definately didn't it was my keyboard wot made a mistake and it just sounded like stupid.........

    I voted for out yes....I didn't vote for a PM who refuses to allow a vote until mid January when it will be too late for anything but her non-deal....maybe Corbyn is right she is a 'stupid women' and today was a load of blaming each other.....and then they all sod off on holiday tomorrow without facing a meaningful vote on her two years plus 'negotiating'.....never trust a remainer to accept the will of the people....17.4 million voters must of got it wrong.....best of three or five or seven until we get it right.

    Hang on a minute plym. Ok lets agree you voted out and I didn't. However, the only question on the ballot paper was IN/OUT. What wasn't on the ballot paper was that you get to vote on what kind of out you would have if you voted that way. Nor was it on the ballot paper that Parliament would have a vote on the kind of deal struck. All you said yes to was OUT. So, why complain now you or rather your representative in Parliament haven't voted. You were never given that as an option. How many votes for out do you want? 2? or maybe 3 or maybe 4,5,6 or even 7 until you are happy with the deal? Tough luck matey, you voted out and out you are getting.

    I'm complaining because that "stupid woman" has not negotiated OUT...her deal is only half out, and suits no one other than the EU and that drunken (another long dinner too many) Jean-Claude Juncker, and that only when he can't find a women to kiss as he leaves the building.

    Completely out will do irreparable damage to the most important parts of British industry. Not that scruffy [email protected] from Wetherspoons or the guy from Timpsons I saw on TV this morning, but proper businesses like BAe, Jaguar Landrover, GKN, Rolls Royce and the like, as well as overseas companies that have substantial presence here like Siemens, Airbus, Toyota, Ford, Honda, Bombardier, BMW and Nissan. Then there's the financial services sector, our biggest earner.

    So no, that's not an alternative even if pro Brexit voters thought wrongly that it was.

    Maybe but the jobs are here...................at the moment. Whether the deal is out the whole way or half out it's still out. If it's not in then it's got to be out. You were not given an option of the kind of out it would be just in/out as I said last night. If you don't like the outcome well there can always be another vote but not just by the few. It should be everyone. You don't like the outcome, I don't like the outcome so why are we persuing it then?

    It's a bit hypocritical to call the in voters sore losers when it looks like the out voters are just as sore. If you can show me on the ballot paper the options for leaving then I will concede.

    That's exactly the point Sensible. Even 100% British owned companies will have to take a long hard look at where they manufacture their products.. and that's what matters. I picked companies with sophisticated supply chains because they'll be the ones hit hardest by Brexit, not the tin-pan-alley "entrepreneurs" who seem to muscle their way on to the TV news.

    And I meant Rolls Royce aero engines, not cars. They world player in that market, a much more significant employer, a driver of British technology and indirectly, of military capability, as do BAe and the skills in the UK arm of Airbus.

    GOOD WILL TO ALL MEN....(but not little old women).

    Just crawled back home battered and bruised after doing Bromley High Street on the Friday before Christmas.

    Ok a sit down and a cup of tea...and we'll be okay.

    BUT.....Whilst we were in Boots (big store on two floors) which was heaving with people.....we came across a little old women bent over with arthritis, literally dragging her Boots wire basket along the floor with people teeming past her left, right and centre.....as we went past her we heard her say.....'please someone help me, I need to sit down'....now Mrs Plym always gets involved at times like that (tell me about it) so we looked for a chair.....lots around in the cosmetic section...but of course they were high seats for staff to help customers with make-up etc.

    So Mrs Plym asked a young staff member for some help....rather flustered she said she would find someone more senior....and brought back a manager, who we had ourselves seen lurking some distance away...trying not to be noticed by us. Mrs Plym explained the situation to him, and could he help her onto one of these 'stools'.....and make sure her basket was looked after while she recovered.

    'Oh dear he said'...don't you realize this is one of our busiest days of the year and what do you expect me to do....NOW that was a red rag to a bull situation to Mrs Plym (you don't want to be around when she gets annoyed) who started to explain that he had a little old lady in his store exhausted and needing a rest...did that not matter more than his stores profit line....after awhile after Mrs Plym had finished with him, and he looked cowered enough to realize what a prat he had made of himself, we left him in charge of the little old lady and went on our way.

    That Plym is exactly what me and my missus would have done. Call these people out is what I say. I get told in Banks and the like that you can do this or that yourself either on line or putting your shopping through a machine and serving yourself. When told I have to tell you the person wishes they hadn't. Personal service is what people want. A friendly face and somebody actually serving you. But, it's all about squeezing the last drop of cash out of the "customer" with the least amount of interaction. Also ask them to do something they weren't expecting and they are stumped. My missus by the way is also very very very vocal when it comes to stuff like that. You do not want to wind her up either.

    Funny isn't it. I'd rather do most things myself online than try to steer some spotty dimwit in the required direction. Agree about self service checkouts though.

    "Unidentified object in packing area". Yes my boot if you don't stop messing about.

    You only looked at the day and month BC. You should have looked at the year as well.

    My son-in-law is a part time post man so I will see what I can arrange so you get mail instantly people. I've just asked and he said "that would be email then". You just can't get the staff these days can you.
