  1. I must confess I wasn't really thinking about pike as I don't really fish for them any more. If you've found some good spots then fill your boots! The locks on the stretches I fish the most have never really been that great but if yours are good, good!
  2. I've caught lots of perch on drop-shotted lobworms. Jigging them would work too but you'd want a very light jig head so the drop back down is as slow as possible.
  3. I've never found the lock cuts that great on the Thames, personally. Logic suggests that when the river is up and charging through (as it is now) that's where they should be, but in reality I've always struggled to catch in those spots. To be honest (and to answer your other topic), when the Thames is like this I don't even bother. It's just not worth it. I'll wait until the colour has dropped out, the level has dropped, and the flow settled down. You might be able to scratch a few fish out if you persist, but everything is against you.
  4. The thing with facts is that they're true whether you believe them or not. It is really sad to see so many people radicalised to the point where they actually want to be lied to so they can continue to buy into the grift. I wonder if anyone can answer me this, as I don't think I'm going to get an answer to a post-brexit immigration strategy (which is weird, right? why not...?). What is brexit today? 1. Teresa May's negotiated agreement + future trade discussions 2. Boris Johnson's negotiated agreement + future trade discussions/possible WTO exit next year 3. Nigel Farage's WTO exit 4. Labour's customs union + close single market alignment 5. Other? Or is the line still that 17.4 million people knew exactly what they voted for, and if so, which one of the above is the true brexit that you can all agree on?
  5. I'm hoping that post-Brexit immigration policy is coming soon? What's the plan?
  6. You and others might find this interesting: https://fullfact.org/immigration/eu-migration-and-uk/ As I said before, as EU migration falls, non-EU migration rises. So the total level does not change. I don't know what all those people are doing, but I do know that the UK government has total control over non-EU migration and could cut it to 0 if it wanted to, so I wonder why a government/party which has been so vocal about cutting immigration has actually allowed such a huge increase in non-EU migration when EU migration has fallen so dramatically? Net EU migration, as it says is currently at around 57,000, not 400,000. Net non-EU migration is currently at 261,000. This has always been higher than EU migration, which kinda damages the hysteric narrative that we're being flooded by uncontrolled immigration. 6% of the UK population were born in another EU country. SIX per cent. Finally, 'EU nationals of working age are more likely to be in work than UK nationals and non-EU citizens. About 83% of working age EU citizens in the UK are in work, compared to around 76% of UK nationals and 66% of people from outside the EU.' Now your turn to dismiss it all
  7. 'The Government could do that Andrew' - yes, exactly. Thanks.
  8. The thing is John, there are loads of other places other than 'here' and 'back home'. Why would people choose here when the exchange rate has tanked and the atmosphere is toxic? There are plenty of other choices. Otherwise, why is loads of our produce now rotting, unpicked, in the fields? Where are all those British workers that were always beaten to those jobs by EU migrants?
  9. If you really believe this, the vote to leave does make some sense. The trouble is, it's simply not true, and people who subscribe to it don't actually care whether it's true or not.
  10. Oh mate. British workers will suffer, not prosper, because of brexit. This stuff just runs too deep now for facts to matter. I hope you get what you think you'll get, I really do.
  11. No, I understand your position completely. I think you will be very disappointed at the reality once we've left the EU. I hope then you direct your anger at our national government, where is belongs. If you could point me towards an actual immigration strategy to be implemented post-Brexit that would be great. There must be one published, given that immigration was front and centre of the reason to leave, and that we have missed 3 deadlines to leave already? If there isn't one (and I mean a real one we can hold to account, not the words 'points-based' written on a fag packet), I'd really be asking myself why that is.
  12. Fine, then a British government can introduce much more stringent immigration rules within the EU, e.g. like Belgium does. We don't need to leave the EU to do that. This is already illegal and will remain illegal. Totally irrelevant to this topic.
  13. Because old chap the future government is not you.
  14. The wishes of the majority were to leave on the terms promised in the campaign. That was the answer that was given. If you want to leave on different terms, we need to be asked a different question.
  15. If you have a problem with free movement, youre in for a world of hurt when this first easy stage is finished and we move on to the next complicated part of sorting out free trade deals with countries around the world.
