Re: B2 visa help

Numerous issues in play here - criminal history, incorrect use of ESTA, disclosing that you were thinking of moving to the USA permanently.

To be honest, it's that last one which has probably...

Re: Should I apply for an Esta or a Visa

In my layman's opinion, none of those offences are CIMT.

Re: Getting Brexit done

More hollow words, which we can all see right through. It basically translates as this:

Gaelic nationalism = a wonderful, noble enterprise (and yes, I said Gaelic because both the Irish and the...

Re: Getting Brexit done

Well just remember that you don't have a monopoly on national pride and that the attitude you exhibit also cuts both ways old son. :nod:

Re: Getting Brexit done

Sorry to be so blunt, but those are rather hollow words, coming from someone like you that is more than happy to stoke the fires of your own flavour of nationalism whenever it suits.

Re: Getting Brexit done

None whatsoever. The knowledge that you and others in your family left Ireland and came to Britain for a better life says everything we need to know. :hysterical:

In your unending zest to provoke people, you don't half talk some complete shite sometimes.

Re: UK immigration post Brexit

That's convenient, but I suggest you read the last few pages of the thread again, Dave. I responded to your #630 when you said our future lies in cooperation with our friends and allies - and you'd...

Re: Getting Brexit done

Well Ireland has never had much going for it, but if nothing else, you guys are world masters at victim mentality and harbouring centuries old grudges.

Re: Getting Brexit done

That's pretty mild compared to some of the anti-Brit feelings I've been subjected to across Ireland.

Re: UK immigration post Brexit

Well one that did change, and has put the rest of the world on an equal footing, is that we can now legitimately have discussions and deals with other countries without the auspices of the EU hanging...

Re: Boris Johnson tell LIES

Errrm, it's votes that keep him in office. Those might be a little hard to come by if Brexit, never mind the no deal variety, turns out to be the unmitigated disaster that you've been hoping for,...

Re: Friday night at 11-30

Absolutely. There are a small hardcore minority of activist posters on here that don't "get it" however.

Re: Friday night at 11-30

a) The tools that the EU permitted the UK to employ were never extensive enough, even if they had been used.

b) Comparisons with other countries are irrelevant. The UK considered the immigration...

Re: Friday night at 11-30

What's sad about it? Maybe they simply disagreed with immigration on principle? That's OK and allowed too, by the way.

Re: Friday night at 11-30

You're not saying anything new. Most politics is essentially ideological. Wanting to be (or to remain) a member of the EU is an entirely ideological position.

Re: Sensible thread on change of UK constitutional and electoral system

I've never been a fan of PR or the compromises that it entails. Calls for it to be introduced seem to be a familiar refrain these days from people who insist that losers in FPTP votes are somehow...

Re: UK immigration post Brexit

Well quite, Dave. Meaning that the entire world is now on a level playing field and we are no longer compelled to prioritise one area over another. Good, isn't it?

Re: The anti-woke backlash

By jove, I think you're finally beginning to understand reality and how the world works. A little way to go yet, but you're getting there. Slowly.

Re: New 50 pence commemoration coin

No they aren't, Eric; but you'll no doubt be gratified to learn that, as well as all of the UK's coins, €uro coinage is also produced at the Royal Mint, along with coins for 50 or 60 countries around...

Re: The anti-woke backlash

If people don't turn up to vote, that's solely their issue and nobody else's. Attempts to deflect responsibility or to dispute the result after the event are disingenuous and pathetic.
