A tumultuous reception in dipper land last evening for J C .

The venue was packed to the rafters .

Contrast that with twonk doris who faces a contempt of court charge tomorrow..

If they can find the ditch he will no doubt be occupying .

Posted by: TerryW (2594) Report abuse
You mean he can actually get tea down that straw neck?

A rope around it wouldn't go amiss.

Posted by: whups (4091)   Report abuse
why does johnson carry a spade around with him ? . to dig the ditch he said he would rather be in if he asked for a EU extention .

Do you believe in democracy

Posted by: grimshaw (1999)  Report abuse
A democracy isnt a democracy if people are not allowed to change their minds .

Thats why we have general elections .

What is so difficult to understand .?

Posted by: Zanzibar Spangles (3816) Report abuse
You could say that about any vote,
but why have another when they won't honour the first?

In a General Election you are voting for a Government who will govern for five years, if after three years, you decide that the country got it wrong, you cannot say that you want another General Election, because the country didn't know what it was voting for three years earlier

Posted by: Salmon & Ball (460)  Report abuse
Why was there was an early general election in 2017
A motion of no confidence must have been passed ?

Thats when the DUP helped the tories out!

Posted by: broady (15065)   Report abuse
I think the government exercised their option to call an election at a time of their choice in their term of office. Seem to recall they expected an easy win and start a new five year term. Didnít work out that way hence they turned to DUP to keep them in power.

Posted by: Salmon & Ball (460)  Report abuse
Maybe they exercised their option by listening to the publics opinion? And it backfired on them good style.

Posted by: grimshaw (1999)  Report abuse
"the country didnt know what it was voting for 3 years only"

So glad you agree with me .

I was on election duty at the referendum in my capacity of poll clerk and believe me the large majority of people voting didnt have a scooby what the hell they were voting for judging by the remarks i heard .

90% of the folk I spoke to ( and before someone throws his size 10's in) in my weeks spent in Tenerife since the referendum voted because of concerns over Immigration. They, like me, neither understand nor concern themselves over tariffs, import duties etc.

Posted by: Salmon & Ball (460)  Report abuse
Correct, Broady
And now they have realised that leaving the EU will have little or no impact on immigration. They are having second thoughts.

Posted by: broady (15065)   Report abuse
Second thoughts? Says who? The polls I read suggest more want to leave than previously. Will be touring bars in Tenerife soon will do a straw poll.

What polls would they be broady .?

Posted by: Zanzibar Spangles (3816) Report abuse
All the polls from genuine sources show the lead vote has increased.
This one stunned them
largest poll since the vote

Those that are all over the British press!!!

Posted by: broady (15065)   Report abuse
S and B,
Good point but I have spent some time in the UK also since the referendum. I will now stop commenting as we have a major election tomorrow and for the first time in my life I shall be voting CONSERVATIVE.

PS. No relation to the UK Conservative party.

grim posts thats why we have general elections when boris asked westminster too dissolve parliament on the advice of bliar, corbyn went a whiter shade of pale.
no election cause bliar knows labour would get stuffed.

Posted by: grimshaw (1999)  Report abuse
My point is that irrespective of what political persuasion you are your allowed to change your mind from election to election .

A general election is binding unlike the referendum .

If you read the referendum bill it explains that .

Surely you read it ,or possibly not .

Posted by: baker boy (14972) Report abuse
agreed,but why keep having referendum's until the remoaners get the right result. what is so superior about being in europe where paying through the nose.its not a level playing field.

Posted by: whups (4091)   Report abuse
mainly because they are using the leave vote to get in .or have you forgot that labour & all the other partys have been asking for an election for the last 3.5 years .

Posted by: whups (4091)   Report abuse
i thought you would come out of the closet sooner or later .i hope you keep to your pledge by not replying back ? .

Posted by: Zanzibar Spangles (3816) Report abuse

Posted by: baker boy (14972) Report abuse
who is using the leave vote to get in,the tories are already in power.cameron gave to country the opportunity to announce to the world what it thought about the european union.the people told him by the ballot box and he scarpered because he could not hack the aftermath .corbyn is a rabid eurosceptic, why has the man not come clean on europe.
two things, he leads a party who could not govern britain without brussel's "guidance".
secondly above the countries welfare, the man wants to be prime minister above all else .
he fervently wants to lead us up the utopian marxist path that the once prosperous venezuala has trod,with remarkable results of impoverishing their country.
the blueprint for anarchy.

The largest trading block there is ON OUR DOORSTEP and brexiteers want to put two fingers up to it beggars belief.

What do you suppose other nations will want in return when we go cap in hand for a trade deal.?

What do you suppose for instance India or the U S A will want in return ?

Your call pal.

Looks like you was spot on then grimshaw.

Posted by: broady (15065)   Report abuse
Does anyone actually think that Mercedes, Audi, BMW etc. will cease to sell cars in the UK? The French sell no wine, the Spanish wine and the Italians cheese will isolate the UK.

Posted by: Salmon & Ball (460)  Report abuse
Of course they will sell them

But it will be like selling new potatoes in a chip shop.
The price will go up never come down

Posted by: broady (15065)   Report abuse
Have the price of new cars dropped anyway whilst in the EU. Tourism is Spain's third biggest earner, employing the most people and the UK accounts for almost 25% of their visitors. Will that cease? No way and if the prices increase visitors will go somewhere else.

Posted by: Salmon & Ball (460)  Report abuse
That is while we are in the EU.

People will still go to Spain as its cheap to get there.


Lets see what happens price wise If we leave

Posted by: broady (15065)   Report abuse
If prices go up people wonít go. They are already losing tourism this year to Turkey and Egypt because of costs so any increase they lose more. That doesnít make economic sense.

Posted by: Salmon & Ball (460)  Report abuse
Wrong.
If prices go up some people cant afford to go.

"No way and if the prices increase visitors will go somewhere else."

Are you suggesting other countries wont increase prices?

Posted by: broady (15065)   Report abuse
You say I am wrong so I bow to your superior knowledge.

Posted by: Salmon & Ball (460)  Report abuse
Posted by: broady (14885)

"They are already losing tourism this year to Turkey and Egypt"

I am a betting man. And I would bet that there are far, far more British holidaymakers who go to Spain as opposed to Egypt at this moment in time

S and B,
Of course there are but that doesnít change what I said. In 2019 they lost tourists to the countries I mentioned. Try Google. It is very helpful.

Posted by: Salmon & Ball (460)  Report abuse
I prefer facts, Broady.
Not an internet search engine

Posted by: grimshaw (1999)  Report abuse
It was ever thus chatty .

Thank you.

Posted by: broady (15065)   Report abuse
S and B,
Would be eternally grateful if you could tell me where you get your facts. I don't think the WEP carries such reports neither does the Observer.

Posted by: Salmon & Ball (460)  Report abuse
Broady.
Tourism is down to the tourists. And how much they spend whilst "touring"
I'll keep it simple.

Albert has a bar in Magaluf. He gets lots of good boozers in his gaff. They like a drink good spenders. Shots, shorts, chasers etc. The till is rolling over! And Albert is well pleased as he has changed the till roll paper three times

On the other hand Ronnie has a bar just further up.
His punters just want a glass of Prosecco or a cocktail ( which they may take two hours to drink!) and if there are no free nuts placed on the table, they might treat themselves to a bag of Lays.

That is tourism. That is where I get my facts, not google

Posted by: broady (15065)   Report abuse
But if Mohammed in Turkey sells cheaper beer and the country is cheaper than Spain then Ronnie and Albert are up schitt creek. In addition Albert is left with a box of unused till rolls.

Posted by: Salmon & Ball (460)  Report abuse
"But if Mohammed in Turkey sells cheaper beer and the country is cheaper than Spain"

I don't understand that comment

A hypothetical reply.
