David "The Ultimate Post Turtle* " Davis strikes again: ~ * You know he didn't get there by himself, he doesn't belong there, he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, and you just want to help the stupid bugger get down.

Good luck with that. When I reported several SoH members to the SoH for blatant abuses of their CoC, they just gave me the run-around for a few months, then did sod all. Maybe PSA accreditation will change that?

My Hungarian friends had to move house..they were attacked, then their lovely cat was poisoned. This is why I will NEVER accept 'the will of the people'.

Brexit in the terms that it was sold is proving impossible to deliver. Whether it's on the NHS, Northern Ireland, or the "exact same economic benefits", Leave campaign promises have been dismantled.

Appalling abuse of religious privilege from today. Initiated a debate in the House of Lords to promote his own church schools and attack secular education. Bishops simply shouldn't have automatic rights to seats in our legislature.

What a shameful and frankly stupid and divisive statement by the Archbishop of Canterbury. How dare he claim that in ‘schools that are not of a religious character, confidence in any personal sense of ultimate values has diminished’? Makes me very cross, it does.

The moral of is that sometimes you have to put in huge amounts of time and effort and money but it’s worth it to get a deal that's so much worse than the one you had before.

So, we are paying £50bn to get no benefits that we don't already have in return for giving up any influence over the EU. Fucking brilliant negotiating there, /s

Full alignment and a £50bn divorce bill.. So what is basically happening is that we spend tens of billions of taxpayers’ money and waste years during which time the Government can’t do anything else, all to just end up in a worse position than we are in today? No thanks

This blatant lie from is alone sufficient reason to disestablish the CofE and remove the reserved seats for clerics ("Lords Spiritual") in parliament. Archbishop of Canterbury attacks non-Church schools as immoral via

ICYMI: This morning, the Archbishop of Canterbury attacked the values of non-religious people and suggested that only church schools could promote genuine moral values. He said this immediately after telling a lie.

/Still ranting, forgive me. UK has entirely red-tape free, tariff-free access to the largest market on the planet. A free trade ideal. Any economic liberal should be ecstatic with this. And the UK is throwing it all away, because of Steam Punk Victorian fantasy revivalism.
