Quoted from Mendonca1995
Was heading through the BP car park yesterday and noticed a 19 plate Rolls Royce Phantom parked up in the middle, with an unknown bloke being walked to his car with JF holding a few binders. Obviously unsure who the guy was, but with all takeover talk quieting down recently, could this be something different? It definitely wasn’t Mr Shutes! Might be clutching at straws and it’s only a car, but not every day that kind of motor is seen in Grimsby! Wondered if anyone else was at the shop/offices and saw anything/anyone? UTM!


From ONLY £363,000

Vote Brexit party....maybe he can upgrade to the deluxe model!!

Who is out of bounds? Pol Pot? Adolf Hitler? Robert Mugabe? Leonid Brezhnev? Augusto Pinochet? Leopoldo Galtieri? No. All fine as long as it means money for the club.

How about El Chappo Guzman? I'm sure he's not a Commie. or a Brexiteer. That should be OK.

Union Carbide! How about them. Not done us any harm.


If all those dead people wanted to hire Blundell Park the club would make thousands with all the ewido's  coming from all over the world

So here's another example;

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/jun/26/nigel-farage-raemain-won-brexit-bloomberg

Crispin Odey alone made £220m that night. He doesn't hide that fact. It's only illegal if there's inside trading (I think this example is illegal but it's hard to prove.

If you want to tell me I'm talking codswallop at least come back with something sensible.

You have to say, the Tories have done a great job over the past decade:

Imagine being diagnosed with cancer and urgently referred but then having to wait over 2 months to start treatment? Must be hellish.

Bevan was right - lower than vermin.


I don't have to imagine it, I flipping experienced it!



Well I did try to tell you all Jolley was a mistake

Quoted from AdamHaddock

It means we won't be dictated to by these Brussels bureaucrats. We'll be dictated to by corporate America lobbyists instead


When the Polish MEP Róża Thun was elected five years ago, she thought the job would be fairly straightforward. She hadn't reckoned with the lobbyists.

Take mobile phone charges. She saw the fact that EU citizens pay eye-watering sums in other EU states as an anomaly that needed fixing. But it wasn't that simple. "We had telephone companies and lobbyists who started to invade us," she recalls. "They obviously didn't want to reduce roaming charges because it would hit them in the pocket."

To stroll around the vast, ugly and permanent building site that is Brussels' European district is to brush up against the power of the lobbies. Every office block, every glass and steel construction within a kilometre of the European commission, council and parliament is peopled by Europe's biggest corporate names.

Thousands of companies, banks, law firms, PR consultancies and trade associations are there to bend ears and influence the regulations and laws that shape Europe's single market, fix trade deals, and govern economic and commercial behaviour in a union of 507 million.

Lobbying is a billion-euro industry in Brussels. According to Corporate Europe Observatory, a watchdog campaigning for greater transparency, there are at least 30,000 lobbyists in Brussels, nearly matching the 31,000 staff employed by the European commission and making it second only to Washington in the concentration of those seeking to affect legislation. Lobbyists sign a transparency register run by the parliament and the commission, though it is not mandatory.

By some estimates, they influence 75% of legislation. In principle, lobbyists give politicians information and arguments during the decision-making process. In practice, the corridors of the parliament often teem with individuals, who meet MEPs in their offices or in open spaces such as the "Mickey Mouse bar" (nicknamed so because of the shape of its seats) inside the parliament.

They explain their concerns, provide a "position paper", and send in suggestions for amendments to legislative proposals. Of course, the final decision is taken by MEPs. But examples are legion of the tail wagging the dog.

Lobbying is such a crucial part of the climate in Brussels that it has spawned manuals, a documentary (Who Really Runs the EU?) and even "the worst lobby awards". Not surprisingly, the biggest movers and shakers agitate for the biggest industries with the most to gain – and lose – from European legislation.

17 Romanians arrested in London on charges involving 29 women of Slavery, prostitution,drugs and firearms offences-another reason why we have to get Brexit done through Johnson or Farage. The other lot are a waste of space.

British people also commit crimes overseas. Based on that contorted and myopic logic nobody with a British passport should ever be permitted to travel to another country for work.

Isn't it correct that the Conservative governments have put more money in than Labour ever did?

Grotesque population growths and people living much longer are very difficult problems to overcome. If Labour has any solutions let us all know.
