    Ask her to and you will soon find out she does BC. You will also get your answer when the fist arrives.

    I blame everything on that gangster Don the Trumpet. He wants us to eat chlorinated chicken for some bizaar reason. Why would you want to eat something that bathes in the local swimming pool? I much prefer the ones that shower in barbecue sauce.

    I am gobsmacked at the devious depths this Government will sink to....offering... "poor areas" ...Brexit £millions... to try and buy Labour MP's to vote for her ridiculous Brexit deal.....and with no choice of alternative Government to take over the mess that this Government has caused...what hope have we got to get decent leadership that this country desperately needs.

    You shouldn't have voted out if you didn't know what you were voting for...........

    And probably 33 million who voted didn't have a clue either. The only information out there was a pack of lies and yes, I would agree that wasn't all one sided. The conduct of the vote was terrible and should never have been allowed to proceed in the way it did. You cannot make an informed decision without some proper facts and figures and be honest we had none of that. This vote was probably the most important vote in our history and the worst run in our history. It just beggars belief.

    ....and David Cameron just ran away from the mess he had created.....free to talk his way around the world and earning far more money than he ever got as PM.

    You were told what would happen before the vote. EU taking a hard line, jobs lost in complex manufacturing (warnings from Toyota and BMW today), sterling down the tubes, economic disaster rather than a £350m a week unicorn saving and the country becoming ungovernable.

    How is it the government's fault all that was right?

    I don't excuse Cameron from blame. Whoever you want to blame for calling the vote in the first place is a lot to blame. But, the lack of truth told and information given is the unforgivable part. That is no way to decide the future of the Country. I am retired so a job doesn't come into it for me. It does for a lot of others though and the truth of voting out is now beginning to come home to roost.

    Incidentally Cameron isn't the only one to make a fortune lecturing around the World after creating havoc. Blair took this Country to war on a lie, has so far escaped justice and earned a fortune from what he did. That for me is even worse.

    1.....Sir Richard Dearlove, the former head of MI6, and senior academics have said a no-deal Brexit would be far better for Britain than Theresa May's deal. In a letter to the 'The Daily Telegraph' today, they say there are "no tangible benefits" under Mrs May's deal. Which would just "prolong the agony", but no-deal offers " immediate opportunities". It came as Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England, admitted his no deal forecast had been "too gloomy".

    Daily Telegraph...06/03/2019.

    My thoughts.....Theresa May's deal is so bad for the country, that she is forcing MP's into a no Brexit or no deal vote when a meaningful vote takes place in a fortnights time....a no brexit vote would destroy the present political parties and cause so much bad feeling that it could force MP's to vote for a no-deal Brexit.

    Theresa May as Home Secretary and now as PM has caused more bad feeling than any other political leader for years, for both sides of Parliament....Margeret Thatcher only upset the working classes and destroyed British industry by not supporting them.

    2.....Mrs May say's that there is "no correlation between certain crimes and police numbers"

    Cressida Dick, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, contradicted Mrs May's assertion that there "was no direct correlation between crimes and police numbers" , by saying there was "obviously" a link between fewer officers and teenage knife crime.

    My thoughts.....Why should the PM think she is right this time...she has been wrong on most major decisions during her time as a cabinet minister and as PM why not this time as well.

    On these points:

    Letter to the Daily Telegraph. I rest my case.

    May said there was no direct (i.e. causal) link. There was an ex law and order adviser to the Mayor of London on the TV. He pointed out that the Metropolitan Police have more officers per head of population than any other force in the country. If there was a direct correlation between violent crime and police numbers, London would have the lowest level of violent crime in the country. It doesn't, it has the highest. There are other factors at work here, including gang culture, fed by social media, organised crime and inability to target areas where offending is highest for fear of accusations of racial bias.

    The Postman has been.....received a letter from the 'Pension Service'....telling me that as I'm approaching 80 yrs of age...my pension will be going up.

    From 01/04/2019 my pension will be increased by 25 pennies a week....cleaned my glasses...and yes I had read it correctly TWENTYFIVEPENCE per week.

    It cost them nearly three weeks pension increase to send the letter.

    It also tells me how to get in touch if I think that the 'decision is wrong'....gobsmacked is my first reaction....I did take note that it is being increased on APRIL FOOLS DAY....it looks like I'm the April fool....waited 80 yrs for a 25P raise....I blame Brexit.

    Interesting story in the Times today regarding the Qatar World Cup.

    Qatar based Al Jazeera TV offered FIFA $400m for the regional TV rights just 21 days before the vote to decide the location of the competition. The offer included $100m that was contingent on Qatar being made hosts.

    It is thought the offer is 5 times higher than the amounts previously paid to televise World Cups in the Middle East.

    Al Jazeera is owned by the Emir of Qatar, who was also the driving force behind the Qatari bid for the World Cup.

    Qatar also offered FIFA a further $480m for other TV rights 3 years later. Shortly afterwards, FIFA dropped its internal investigation into corruption in the World Cup bidding process.

    All perfectly innocent I'm sure.

    TERROR ATTACK IN NZ

    49 people known to have died in an attack on two Mosque's in Christchurch New Zealand during Friday prayers.

    One man arrested at the moment....who is known as an Australian white supremacist and anti immigration....three others arrested carrying weapons but at present they are not known as being part of this attack.

    I would think this will bring reprisal attacks from Islamists and their is a state of high alert in NZ and in other countries as well.

    This isn't mine but it is funny.

    The Speaker has ordered that the Government cannot bring its Brexit deal to the House for a third time under a constitutional principle established in 1604.

    Jacob Rees-Mogg has today issued a statement saying that he opposed the creation of that principle in 1604 and that he will do so again now.
