Often got stick for suggesting some people didn't understand what they were voting for on Brexit, here's a cracking example

https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/brit ish-ex-pats-leaving-spain-to-avoid-illega l-immigrant-status-after-brexit/ar-BB1f3g M1?ocid=msedgntp

Shaun Cromber, who voted for Britain to leave the EU in 2016, told Global247News: “Yes I voted out, but I didn’t realise it would come to this, my application has been rejected and we are on our way home – the wife is in tears, she’s distraught if I’m honest and I’m not too happy at the prospect of returning back to the UK.

What a fucking numpty

The reason he's a numpty is that the Spanish authorities have done everything possible to make it easy for ex pats (immigrants) to register locally and they've had 5 years to do it. It takes about a week to process and all they have to do is prove they have a residence, sufficient funds to live (about 24k) and that they have medical insurance. If they didn't do that it means they were under the radar, not contributing and expecting the best of both worlds. Now they're coming back here, presumably moaning about the Spanish and the EU when it's clearly their own fault. Gove told them a subtle lie in 2016, that he expected EU countries to stick to international law. People like this guy thought they were too important to the Spanish to be kicked out. The Spanish did stick to the law and they weren't too important. I wonder if he'll still moan about immigrants in the UK?  

Of course there are cracks, that's how the light gets in.

This piece of utter shite is the reason the rest of us...irrespective of our political allegiance...need to fight to keep these nameless cancel culture people at bay. I've no time for Starmer as you all probably know but this is a shameful attack on him and is pure putrid propoganda.

The reason I cannot stand the man of course is in the last paragraph...he should have told him "party spokesman" to tell them to Fuck Off!




campaigners over church visit

Sir Keir Starmer has come under fire after he visited a church which has been widely criticised for its attitudes towards homosexuality.

The Labour Campaign for LGBT+ Rights said it was “unacceptable” after the party leader posted a video online highlighting his visit on Friday to the Jesus House in Brent Cross in north London.

After raising it with the leader’s office, the group said that it had received an “unreserved apology” and would be holding a further meeting to ensure it did not happen again.

In the video, Sir Keir praised Jesus House as a “wonderful example” of a church serving its community during the coronavirus pandemic – including acting as a vaccination centre.

“From rolling out the vaccine to running the local food bank, Jesus House, like many other churches across the UK, has played a crucial role in meeting the needs of the community,” he said.


In 2017, Theresa May was criticised when she visited the church, although Boris Johnson and the Prince of Wales have both been to the pop-up vaccination centre there in recent weeks without attracting widespread comment.

Labour sources said Sir Keir’s visit was also focused on the vaccination centre – although the video did show him apparently praying with the pastor.

A Labour spokeswoman said the party was “unwavering” in its support for the LGBT+ community.

In a statement, the Labour Campaign for LGBT+ Rights said: “The visit was unacceptable and we made this clear to LOTO (the Leader of the Opposition’s office).

“We received an unreserved apology, and will be urgently meeting with them next week to ensure this does not happen again and that LGBT+ equality is embedded in everything that Labour does.”

The way they've treated the public in Sheffield is an absolute disgrace. You've only got to look at the Amey Trees debacle.

The town centre is an absolute disaster as they try to cling to the desperate justification of moving the market down the bottom of the Moor and so build new retail down there and so effectively tell Cole Bros they're on their own (granted, I know it's HoF and granted they lived there rent and rate free) but it's a bloody shambles of a City. Home of Football. Where does it say that anywhere? Oldest 2 clubs in the world. Where does it say that anywhere? Oldest derby in the world. Where does it say that anywhere?

Car parking prices in town - astronomical. Oh, by the way, it's free in Meadowhall. HS2 link? They haven't a clue where they want it (ignoring that it's a waste of time and money)

I could go on and on

Tories take overall control of Notts County Council.

Not a good time to be a lefty there...

I came 3rd in a shit hot labour seat in Doncaster. True story.

Some other council seats did turn away from red. Nowhere near enough to influence the council but its still a shot across the bows and a start.
