  1. Program alert. BBC2 Monday Evening at 2100hrs are doing a documentary called:- Inside Europe: 10 years of turmoil. Three episodes. Episode one: We Quit Episode one tells how David Cameron was pushed by the Conservative Party’s fixation with Europe to call the Brexit referendum. Douglas Carswell and Daniel Hannan reveal how they sought to turn up the heat on the Prime Minister. For the first time on television, William Hague, George Osborne and Nick Clegg reprise the arguments inside Government that led to the decision which sparked the biggest political crisis since World War Two. Osborne warned against a gamble that could be a "disaster for Britain", but Hague thought there was no other option, saying: "this was coming. Either we had to lead that or be the victims of it". https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/proginfo/2019/05/inside-europe-10-years-of-turmoil

    Home Bread Making

    I don't know Mams, infact I don't know the name of this place, but if your travelling from pattaya to Sattahip you go past the 332 which is the road to Rayong but keep on Sukhumvit and the bakery is about a mile further on from the 332. Have included a screenshot of the bakery.
  4. I was not offering an opinion of what JRM said, I merely corrected the poster as to what he said.
  5. If you think that about our country perhaps it best you did leave, but if you're going to use a parachute I wouldn't sever all your ties.

    Home Bread Making

    I live inbetween Pattaya and Sattahip, we have a well stocked bakers shop. Yes I use the white flour in green bags 30 odd baht, the last time I went down I bought some whole wheat flour 75 baht a kilo. Mixed 4 cups of white with 3 whole wheat + 4 table spoons of sunflower seeds. The result was two very large cobs, in all honesty it was a little too whole wheaty for me, so will try 5 and 2 cups next time.
  7. With all due respect melvin, it was reported he had sciatica, I have had sciatica and I didn't suffer the same syptoms as JCJ. But it isn't just his alcohol problems its the way he disrespects women. Maybe on the Continent it's ok to touch and flick ladies hair, but in the UK it would not be tolerated and he would have lost his job a long time ago, the man is a fool.
  8. This is from the Guardian. https://www.theguardian.com/global/commentisfree/2019/jan/16/second-brexit-referendum-mps-democracy-peoples-vote "Arrogant remainers want a second vote. That would be a bad day for democracy So, many hoping for another vote will have cheered as MPs dramatically voted down the prime minister’s deal last night. Yet making a second vote happen would require tearing up much of what we consider to be the elementary workings of British parliamentary democracy. Since the June 2016 referendum, MPs have repeatedly voted in support of the result, in the name of implementing a decision taken by a majority of the electorate. Many seem to forget that between the original Brexit vote and today, we had a general election. Conservative and Labour parties both committed themselves in their manifestos to implementing the referendum result. Only the Liberal Democrats could say that they opposed Brexit in an election that saw them pick up only a handful more seats than the catastrophic 2015 election. The same happened over the so-called “great repeal bill”, the legislation required to repeal the 1972 European Communities Act, when MPs rejected an amendment calling for a referendum on whether to support the deal or remain in the EU."
  9. The way you quoted is that we will have to wait 50 years for the benefits to be known, what JRM is saying is that we will be feeling the benefits over the next 50 years.
  10. "The over whelming opportunity for brexit is over the next 50 years" is what Jacob Rees Mogg said and not what you are saying he said. Are you deliberately misquoting to help you make your point. You can see the difference can't you?
  11. Yes you're correct the LibDems got 12 seats, to quote Brucie "didn't they do well"
  12. Lets not dwell on what Parliament can do, but more what they did do.
  13. Everybody understands how rep democracy works, but you know as well as I do that on the 21st of June 2016 that rep democracy was sub contracted out to the citizens of the UK. And both of the leading political parties based their manifestos on leaving the EU and between them accrued most of the votes, the Lib/Dems fought their campaign on remaining in the EU and got a severe beating. I hope it has become a little more apparrent to you how our system worked on the day of the vote. Again Bercow has done something most irregular and far from neutral, but what he did do is to try and overturn democracy and I hope he does not get the mandatory Knighthood and he gets booted out at the first possible opportuity. I'm very surprised he doesn't have EU cushions on his Parliamentary seat. And most importantly my name is not vogue, I am not a magazine.

    Some topics I get notifications and some other topics I don't?
  15. 17.4 had an opinion, not just me, if you don't like what I say it probably has something to do with not getting your own way on the 21st June 2016. Just for the record I find your posts very condescending, no offence meant.
