I'm sure the last time I heard from some of these people the forums were in hieroglyphics... : :muttley:

Welcome back.

I have now moved most of my political garbage onto facebook too, where I like to troll the Labour party, Conservatives, Lib-Dems, uKIP (aka the tired party) and do an occasional post on the Brexiteer and remoaner pages too.

i could possibly be one of the oldest if anyone remembers me from OCS!

Wasn't that the OverCockup Store or something? I remember it being regarded as a badge of honour to get banned from there at one point.

Evening !

Much like CoOl's original post; I found myself at my desk wondering what had become of this forum and it's members. Turns out that you're all pretty much still here, which is kind of awesome in this age of constantly moving to the "next big thing" :)

Sorry to read that some of you are having tough times but I am genuinely smiling that so many of your are still here  :thumbup:

The Irish Painters Dilemma

A painter by the name of Murphy, while not a brilliant scholar, was a  gifted portrait artist.

Over a short number of years, his fame grew. Soon people from all over Ireland were coming to the town of Miltown Malbay, in County Clare, to get him to paint their likenesses.

One day, a beautiful young English woman arrived at his house in a stretch limo and asked if he would paint her in the nude. 

This being the first time anyone had made such a request he was a bit perturbed, particularly when the woman told him that money was no object. In fact, she was willing to pay up to £10,000. 

Not wanting to get into any marital strife, he asked her to wait while he went into the house to confer with Mary, his wife. They talked much about the Rightness and Wrongness of it. It was hard to make the decision but finally his wife agreed, on one condition.

In a few minutes he returned. "T'would be me pleasure to paint yer portrait, missus," he said. "The wife says it's okay. "I'll paint you in the nude all right; but I have to at least leave me socks on, so I have a place to wipe me brushes.

Boris the liar still lying about the EU, even in his resignation speech. He brought up an issue that the EU supposedly hadn't past a law to lower window height on lorries.

Except the EU had passed it. Sometimes you just want to beat the god awful bastard around the head warmly with a baseball bat.

I have never actually followed them, despite the fact I could go to Newcastle football matches free. Rugby and cricket have been my preferred sports but I haven't bothered with those in years either.

Seems both David Davis and Boris the Clown have quit. Hopefully they will go into comedy together as the new Laurel and Hardy. They are incompetent as politicians.

Knighty, did you read the voting paper? It said quite clearly that the vote had advisory status only. The government can cite change of circumstance and revoke Article 50 whenever they want.

There has been plenty of UK research now, a hard no deal Brexit could mean an average GDP drop across Britain of 8% or more. The North East will experience double that. Then the government will be putting up tax to pay for the supposed £20 billion they claim is going to the NHS.

We know there are not going to be any quick and easy trade deals, with anyone. Forget America under Trump. India will want a lot more visas for it's people to come to Britain to work.

Cameron gave the promise to carry out the result resigned, so that does not count.  They can cancel Brexit whenever they want, they are not legally required to follow it through.

The Brexit referendum came up just after the EU put in place a new directive aimed at stopping rich people and corporations avoiding tax. It comes into effect one month after they leave. Some are suggesting they are trying to turn the UK into a huge tax haven.

And Teresa May's husband runs a massive investment fund. Guess which other Tories do too.

thing is, referendum voted to leave, politicians accepted it and started prepping to leave... so we can't turn back now


I have no idea about how leaving will effect the country or me personally - and I think the vast majority of people feel the same

Seems that traitor to Britain Jacob Rees-Mogg has pooed his nappy and spat out his dummy already. His ERG group is already having a hissy fit claiming The deal would be "the worst of all worlds black hole Brexit" and cause a landslide defeat. Still fits the definition.

Guess they want to remain then?  :nana: :panic: :rofl: :rofl:

Tory unity managed to last less than 24 hours, now to watch the fall out and see if any of them actually resigns, or gets the whip withdrawn.

I still have not got one good, valid, reason for leaving the EU from any Brexiteer. Normally they just recite the sound bites, we won the referendum and Brexit is Brexit.
