    The UK’s intelligence agencies found no evidence that the Russian state interfered in the outcome of the Brexit referendum and the 2017 election, according to two sources with direct knowledge of the Intelligence and Security Committee report

    In UK Brexit news Nigel Farage aims to expose the truth about Boris' deal.

    tweet: https://twitter.com/Nigel_Farage/sta...592643586?s=20

    Nigel Farage
    @Nigel_Farage
    Over the next two weeks, we will embark on a nationwide campaign to expose this rotten deal.

    Every household in the land will hear the truth about the perilous path it would send our nation on.

    The deal is simply not Brexit and does not get Brexit done.

    Drop your dreadful deal, Boris, and in the national interest let's get Brexit done properly
    The Brexit Party is ready for the general election. As the European election made clear, we have hundreds of high quality candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds who are united in their desire to secure a proper break from Brussels and who share a lack of trust in the political class.

    All sides seem to have an agenda and who is actually there for the voters I wonder.
    What is really in the best interests of UK or the future of the free world?
    Dont ask me--Im a floating--non voter.

    All you Brits (or people who live in Britain!) — please forgive me for this. I've only just discovered it.

    I've also just realized that YoYoYo posted it here, back in July. But no apologies for the re-post! It's priceless.

    Bravo! This analogy I use with Spanish teenagers.

    Imagine the UK is a car. Every five years we have elections and the new government changes the car´s tyres. The conservatives prefer hard tyres and labour prefer softer tyres.

    Now in 2016, we had a vote to decide if we want to change the engine of the car. We already have a nice reliable European/ British engine but we were promised an Aston Martin of an engine if we decided to change it.

    However, changing the car's engine has not been easy. It turns out the new engine will be more like a Rover 600 then an Aston Martin. The Europeans would like us to keep the same engine but maybe just change a piston or two.

    ps. No disrespect to anyone who has/had a Rover

    How to make the perfect cuppa - as Boris Johnson's tea-making skills are questioned

    https://uk.yahoo.com/style/boris-joh...103921654.html

    Boris Johnson’s tea-making skills have been questioned after he was filmed pouring himself a cuppa in an election broadcast on Twitter.

    The Prime Minister was criticised for not taking the teabag out, adding milk with it still in and barely stirring the brew.

    Some people even pointed out that the controversial technique could even lose the 55-year-old votes in the general election.

    Mr Johnson responded to those who noticed how he takes his brew, saying: “This really is how I make my tea… It lets it brew and makes it stronger.”


    The original heading was Outrage
    over Johnson's tea making skills.
    I m not fond of how the media sensationalizes everything.

    Actually thats exactly how I make my tea.
    "Controversial technique" Well I never!!

    I leave my tea bags in all the way until the tea has been fully imbibed (yes bags... I use two). I prefer Lap Sang Su Chong... and I tap a tad of a special stevia you can't get anymore because the importer got out of the biz (I bought her entire stock which should last me into my 90s should I make it that long).

    Thankfully I can't lose any votes.

    All the above is all and only my opinion - all subject to change and not meant to be true for anyone else regardless of how I phrase it.

    This is a funny joke regarding tea and Brexit.

    Hi Greybeard

    I've watched a few of Craig's vids. 'I'm fallible' he says quite often. He predicted quite decisively that we'd leave in March 2019 then again on Oct 31st. A hard Brexit with a last minute deal. He doesn't show that in the retrospectives! But when something is so hit and miss it's not wise to take any of it really. He says Conservatives will win the election and Jeremy Corbyn gains more power but then is replaced after election? Who knows. I predicted that the 31st would pass with another delay and I make no claim of psychism. It's all beyond a joke now and the only thing we can take for sure is that the backroom, Bullingdon Club deals are what shape policy, not the voting public.

    My father used to say 'if you don't vote, it's the same as giving a vote to each party' and when I think that women died to give me the right to vote, I feel I ought to, but like others I feel there is little point. It's a rigged game. Jeremy Corbyn radiates integrity and isn't in the game of slinging muck at others (as they do on him relentlessly) and that makes me favour him, also socialist ambitions like free education, healthcare, taking back control of the water etc. but I'm afraid the public are so sick of them all, completely programmed to believe whatever the mainstream agenda is, that we will get the government we deserve and the slaves will slog on and continue to swell the offshore accounts of the plutocrats.

    Call me cynical. I am. If Labour won though, to be honest, I'd have a glimmer of hope and I've never voted Labour in my life! Somehow I think that JC would manage a Brexit that isn't all about plutocrats avoiding taxes and exposure.

    Thanks Phoenix1304 for your input.
    Living in Scotland the perspective is quite different--we benefit greatly from being in the EU.
    Andrew Marr on BBC this morning will be good--he is Scottish incidently.
    Cant see an election solving the Brexit mess---people have made their minds up.
    Boris may loose his seat--that would be a first.
    SNP will probably gain seats.
    In Scotland many benefits--free eye test--free bus pass over 60 and disabled.
    Scotland traditional Labour --SNP has many Labour qualities.
    Interesting to see where this all goes.
