  1. Perhaps I'm out of touch, but why does the Angling Trust employ 'Enforcement Officers' ?????
  2. Just wondering how the Socialist Tax-and-Spend way of life that you seem to want, affected you, or whether you were one of those that thinks it wouldn't affect them. Got any figure for money sent home by Brits working abroad, and I don't mean all the stuff that the oil workers bank offshore to avoid tax. Over 10 years ago there was a figure of £2.3Bn a year being sent back to Poland, published. That's money that could have been spent providing jobs in this country. They send more back than they pay in tax. When I went to Germany in 1968, there was a £50 limit on what I could take. Part of that was the train fare. Then there's those chaps selling the Big Issue who have built luxury homes back home in Romania. As far as graft is concerned, try carrying 5,000 bricks a day up a ladder. Done it and got the T-shirt.
  3. Gorbachev was comparing the institutions and the political agendas of the ruling elite, not the living standards of us plebs. The French, especially, hate the US and the EU goal is a Socialist superstate to challenge America. It won't work, we all know that, but they are willing to have us go through the same sort of control freakery that the people of the USSR had to go through for 70 years before it collapsed. The UK will possibly be the first domino.
  4. You can only think about money, it seems. How much income tax have you paid in recent years? Just wait and see what "ever closer union" means. All the money that is sent back home by the immigrants, "redistribution of wealth" socialists call it. Conscription into a European Army for your grandchildren. You are deluded if you don't think it is planned.
  5. Someone more qualified than you would disagree: "The EU is the old Soviet Union dressed in Western clothes.”― Mikhail Gorbachev
  6. I would rather believe this chap: "The most puzzling development in politics during the last decade is the apparent determination of Western European leaders to re-create the Soviet Union in Western Europe." ― Mikhail Gorbachev
  7. Project fear is scraping the bottom of the barrel so much, it will soon make a hole in it.
  8. People in the black economy don't care about any rules that the rest of us get lumbered with when big brother governments think they know best.
  9. We have laws to stop that now, but these newcomers seem to prefer medieval practices.
  10. I don't think the conservatives will want to expel Boris and see him become the new UKIP leader.
  11. The whole of the Islamic way of controlling women seems to be based on the fact that the blokes can't suppress their libido with booze. I understand that 'The Prophet' married a 12-year-old girl.
