Yeah, more than likely. Mind you, the fallout from this is getting pretty spectacular. Turns out what AG Barr said is completely different from what the report does...

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

The report is being anazlysed by thousands of people as we speak, there's a lot to get through. But for a 'light redaction', they've sure got a lot to hide. Especially in pages 17 & 18





It's bloody ridiculous, and amusingly obvious.

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

AG Barr has released a heavily redacted version of Mueller's investigation findings.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/world-us-canada-47817596

Congress is out of office, so the timing is already suspect, and the amount of redacting that's gone on will only raise more questions than it supposedly answers. Mueller's been summoned to testify at a special hearing, and Trump is screaming 'No Collusion' and mucking around in photoshop

"Maybe you should think about addressing some of those people's concerns rather than lumping them together as a homogenous mass."

Like being called 'remainers', and dismissing every rational argument put forward with a wave of the hand, and regarded as inferiors due to a shortfall of a few million votes 3 years ago?

For lack of a better argument, they started it.

I refer to Farage as a divisive moron because I honestly cannot think of one nice thing to say about the bloke. His belligerent crusade to tear us out of the EU with lies & falsehoods, which he admitted to the morning after the vote, and claiming 'unfinished business' in the result of a 52/48 split, which is exactly what happened, and hypocritically forgetting all about his pledge once the vote swung his way.

You're saying that polls give UKIP & The BP (just missing an 'N', there Nige) and 30% share of the vote. Yougov has some interesting polls as well. 50% of the population are against a No Deal Brexit (which is more likely now, thank Hades). WhatUKthinks has Remain beating Leave 46-42% And if there was a GE tomorrow, Labour would win.

The Brexit party is a duplication of Trumps presidential rallies. They know they're apparently on the losing side, they know if another vote was held they'd probably lose, but like Trump, they'll fill out the sports halls with as many faithful as they can muster, and repeat the same old nonsense we've heard for the last 4 years. If they're so sure we're leaving, and the public is still on their side, so why do they feel the need to put this party together, unless it's in desperation?

UKIP's basically the BNP/EDL now, especially since they've welcomed violent thug Yaxley-lennon into the fold with open arms, and the Brexit Party is a joke on toast.

RE: [VIDEO] The Official Title For Star Wars: Episode IX Revealed

Here's my take on the official YT trailer

Start: Hamill voiceover. Probably halfway through the movie. Rey doesn't look that beat up, Skywalker saber intact after TLJ antics.Flip obvious from anyone who's familiar with unleashed. Not obvious, but expected. Kylo piloting Viper

Dark, wet planet. Reminiscient of Rogue One

Kylo fighting rebel on reddish planet. No clues

Kylo welding his helmet back together. Rumours abound that his character may have had feelings for Rey, this clip would seem to suggest that particular conversation didn't go that well

Poe looking like Indy & Finn holding Rey's staff, possibly tattooine

BB8 & D-O (Dio). Cute couple clip. No purpose

Oh look. It's Lando

Stormtroopers on speeders chasing Poe, Finn & Threepio on what looks like a skiff from Jabba's palace.

A New Hope medal being fondled. There were only two issued, and both recipients are now dead, so this is probably Leia doing the fondling.

Rey hugging Leia in a forest scene. I'm guessing this is post-Leia passing, as it looks quite ethereal & dream-like

Gang looking at the remnants of a Death Star. Last voice heard is the laugh of the Emperor.

Now, a lot of speculation is that the planet they're on is Endor. But Endor was a forest moon, and they don't really look like they're on the world inhabited by ewoks (although this gives Warwick Davis an excuse to pick up another paycheque as Wicket).

The only other alternative is Yavin IV, but in retrospect Endor's probably the better bet, not only due to the presence of Sheev, but also to debunk the meme that the destruction of the Death Star 2 would have destroyed the ecosystem of the ewok's home world.

"No Wedge... :(

Denis was asked to come back for Force Awakens, but he declined. He regards himself as a serious actor in his own right (and rightly so, he's awesome), and didn't want to be on screen for 30 seconds just so fans can point and say 'Oh look, there's Wedge'. He would have returned for a larger, part, but as cool as his character was, he really was just Luke's wingman. Ok, I personally regard him as the guy who started the destruction of the second death star, but when you look it it, he's got less back story than Darklighter.

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

Gives them more room to weigh in the altenatives and contemplate doing the things they always said they wouldn't, which they've been doing since day one.

Given them time to have a General Election, the European elections, and another referendum

Also, Farage is feeling left out

He spent a bit. Best year was 20k p.a. but he was despised by everyone. We weren't the only branch that issues with him. Accounts aren't closed willy-nilly, so to do so isn't a knee-jerk thing, and several factors have to be taken into account, none of which I'm allowed to talk about. I say 'I can close accounts', but I mean I can flag an account for contractual abuse, and aggressively verbally abusing staff members comes under that criteria.

Luckily, I wasn't the only employee, and we weren't the only branch that had issues with his bullshit on a daily basis.

RE: Is Assange about to be kicked out of Ecuadorian embassy?

Allegedly he was covering up security cameras, arguing with staff and actively engaging in political activity (as in still working with Wikileaks), all breaches of his conditions of asylum. Guy's a bit of a dick, by all accounts.

RE: Policing question.

Indeed. It really is a case of being in the right place at the right time to catch an offence taking place and issuing a fine there and then. Unless some kind of ANPR-style cycle registration is rolled out they'll be getting away with reckless crap for years to come.

I work in a builder's yard, so I get the same assumption. In fact, I was called a 'f***ing traitor' to my face a few weeks back because I told them i voted remain. Luckily, I now have the authority to close trading accounts, so we haven't seen him since.

It's mainly fixed penalty notices, but only if they're caught by a police or traffic officer.

[VIDEO] RE:Brexit

Not quite. The EC are still investigating Leave.EU, and while only 1 of the 4 fines was marginally lowered, they publicly lamented that the relatively low amount being fined, £66,000, is a drop in the ocean for the agenda-led tycoons who funded the leave campaign.

RE: Windows 10: Microsoft is looking to force people to use its Edge browser

I recently purchased a new laptop with W10 installed and it's the clunkiest, most awkward user interface I've seen, and that includes 3.1. I'll stick with it for the time being as I need a portable PC for some upcoming projects. Happily I was advised on these very pages to get Spybot Beacon to disable the horrific amount of telemetry that comes with it.

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

I've probably mentioned this before, but my first awakening about the contradictory bullshit of newspapers in general was a day after a Norman Lamont budget speech. Nearly every newspaper was vilifying him for an atrocious bedget, but the Daily Mirror had an illustration of him as Robin Hood, roobing from the rich to give to the poor.

That was when I realised the purpose of any newpaper wasn;t to report the news, but to sll their version of their news to generate the biggest profit.

The BBC news site has a report every day about the upcoming newspaper headlines fot the next day, and it's a hilarious read for it's sheer ridiculousness.

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

The wording of the petition doesn't specify either campaign, so I'd assume that would be the case. However, as far as I can recall, I haven't heard of any cases of impropriety outside of the leave campaign(s). That said, I'm sure a thorough investigation of both sides of the argument would be welcomed by all.

Unless someone had something to hide.

There's a website somewhere that's been tracking every alarmist headline the Mail has printed, coupled with another article saying the opposite, but I'll be buggered if I can find it
