I'm not one by habit. Seems a bit unfair to blame FT readers alone for Trump & Brexit, though. Especially the unfortunate Trump thing - that's on a different continent, for goodness' sake. Still, never mind - at least it wasn't the Guardian / BBC this time.:cool: Or loony lefties.:thumbup:

FT readers. Bastards. Including Keith. Go on, f*** off, all 200,000 of you.

As is only right and proper under those circumstances, the newspaper issued an amendment to the article. Any decent newspaper would do the same.

Happens quite frequently, actually - all part of the haste to rush everything out to the online version, I guess. Good thing there are always some hawks about to point out the errors :shades_smile:

One out of ten for trying. :thumbdown:

I used to have a degree of respect for the Guardian at one time, but sadly it's gone rapidly downhill of late.
Finding itself stuck between a rock and a hard place and defend the indefensible while trying to humour the lefty loons certainly doesn't help. :cool:

..... unless of course he's been reading the above mentioned remoaner crap on BE. :lol:

Whether true or not, the fact you're willing to research an article to say it's crap is commendable. But the fact you WON'T research any article that you post that aligns with your views is mind boggling. 'If it's in the Express and it's anti-immigrant and anti-EU then it MUST be correct. If it doesn't agree with me I shall sit and google and call it crap and blame Merkel and and and.'

Still not quite got this yet have you?

Go overseas and try and buy stuff with your near worthless pounds.

Hateful ignorance from you Dick. Really, really unimpressive to have to read such drivel from someone who then demands to be listened to when posting unadulterated lies from the Express et al.

Basically, if you're not in the EDL, BNP or UKIP...AND....you don't hate brown people OR Muslims....then you're a lefty loon. I think.

A degree of respect for the Guardian? I mean, I don't read the Guardian but the fact you share links from the Express yet cast aspersions over the Guardian is mind blowing.

Remember this blatant lie recently?

Spoiler for size:


Yet you criticise other papers and continue to read, post and believe this tripe.

I'm not stupid enough to believe any newspaper gets it right 100% of the time, but good grief Dick. Get a ****ing grip.

You've said similar about so many things that I'm beginning to get a teensy weensy glimmer of a suspicion that it might be you that's changed. You're getting old and irritable and what were probably once regarded by your mates as slightly eccentric opinions have hardened into out-and-out bigoted ignorance, which you're beyond caring about embarrassing yourself by expressing. Old habits die hard, though - that's why you keep trying to dress it all up in acceptable ways. Farage's parrot, that's what you've turned into.

Exclusive: Britain will be front of the queue for trade deal with US under Donald Trump's new commerce secretary

Donald Trump’s commerce secretary has made securing a free trade deal between the US and Britain one of his top priorities, the Telegraph has learnt.

Wilbur Ross, the billionaire nominated to lead on trade in Mr Trump’s administration, is understood to be determined to lower barriers between the two countries.

He is said to have “extensive” business relationships and social links to Britain after decades as an investor and wants to embolden the “special relationship”.



Sorry EMR and all that, but Regardless of Downing Sts attitude, Nige is continuing to be a major political influence for the benefit of the Uk.

https://www.theguardian.com/politics...of-immigration

Andy Burnham, Labour’s candidate to become the mayor of Greater Manchester, has accused his party of getting its priorities over Brexit wrong by placing single market access at the top of the list ahead of controlling immigration.

Labour needs to take back control of the immigration debate
Andy Burnham

The former shadow home secretary suggested the referendum result was not about putting the economy first, as the party leader, Jeremy Corybn, and a string of senior Labour colleagues have suggested, but instead a clear vote in favour of ending free movement across Europe.

Writing in the Guardian, Burnham said Labour’s “collective failure” to tackle concerns over jobs, wages, housing and schools linked to migration had contributed to the loss of the referendum.

But he claimed that politicians were still scared to speak out over the issue because, even in the wake of the Brexit vote, they knew they might face a hysterical reaction.

Where did you dream that up , in one of your express orgies.
The latest from this paper for the ignorant and illinformed is that the Christmas retail boom that has has happened since the first Christmas is now due to guess what ,Brexit.
It would be easy to call those who fall for such crap morons, but thst would be an insult to morons..
Obviously you are happy to swap the EU for becoming economically dependent on Trumps US.

Farage may be grovelling to Trump but what power and authority does he have, None, Nada, Zilch, just like the intelligence of those who believe Express headlines.

At least you are now admitting that the brexit vote was about immigration and not the EU.
Want to rethink your ridiculous claim that Ukip is not an anti immigrant party.

Andy Burnham couldn't get himself elected as Labour Party leader, so he's running for Mayor of Manchester.

Someone might want to explain to the gentleman that in the EU referendum, Manchester voted to remain

And those 'concerns' over jobs, wages, housing and schools are down to the government under-funding these, not down to immigration. And I suggest Manchester voting remain was a clear 'yes' to keeping the benefits of EU membership such as free movement.
