"You are all getting very argumentative now, i notice this on many Brexit discussions on other forums as time goes on, as this is ongoing for three years now, mainly due to the incompentence of our MPs to get it resolved.

The point is everyone has their own reasons for deciding to be a leaver or a remainer, and that is not going to change no matter how high you raise your voice to each other and use expletives."

You literally posted a youtube video where the guy lists ways of telling the EU - and therefore those who want to remain in it - to f*** off.

My 'expletive laden' reposte was me turning your own words back on you.

"Idea for a new referendum. Which half of the country do you want to live in, Remainia or the Brexit Kingdom"

It will be called 'Scotland'.

To my business failing thanks to brexit "f*** off"

To the UK economy reliant on smooth trade, workers and services with Europe "f*** off"

When you've lost every argument and all you are left with is "f*** off"

RE: [VIDEO] The Next PM

She's an odd one all right.

In April 2013, the Daily Telegraph's star columnist, Allison Pearson, wrote a characteristically blistering column attacking the producers of the reality show The Voice for failing to select her daughter at the auditions. Under the headline "Why You Won't Hear My Daughter on The Voice", Pearson denounced the decision as evidence of bias against children with a "happy middle-class childhood".

This week — more than six years later — the Telegraph deleted that piece from the internet following a request by Pearson. Her reason, according to a source briefed on the matter: Her daughter is trying again to get on the show, and the columnist didn't want it coming up in Google searches ahead of the audition.

Some of the prominent Johnson supporting takes on this are quite incredible.

We really need to name and shame the #Boris neighbours. Maybe record their blameless, unshouty lives and give the tape to a national newspaper. Anyone know who they are?

"Until fossil fuels are completely phased out of electricity generation, electric cars are worse than petrol and diesel. Electricity generation from fossil fuels is only 38% efficient. It produces less carbon to drill for oil, crack it in a refinery, transport the fuel to petrol stations, put it in your car and burn it there for automotive force and drive the same distance as an electric car. I think in the UK there are days where electric cars are worthwhile, but it isn’t a constant thing yet."

That old trope has been debunked dozens of times. The oil industry pumps millions into misinformation because they know the writing's on the wall.

??? use the charging network then. There is more than one charging option. They are bringing chargers to supermarkets and workplaces. These will become commonplace. Petrol suppliers are doing tie-ins with charge providers to bring chargers to petrol stations - they know which way the wind is blowing.

"This will need a big infrastructure upgrade to make it as viable as it needs to be, I hope it happens but not convinced it'll happen in the next decade in any real meaningful way."

It's happening. Clearly you are unaware of it. Whatever objections you can dream up, electric cars are going to replace ICE cars wholesale. And battery prices (the bit that makes the cars expensive) are falling fast.

In Norway 60% of all new cars sales are electric. In China they are producing a myriad of new electric cars brands - they are the biggest buyers of electric vehicles in the world. The countries that don't push the change to electric become the 'left behinds'.

"I'm still not convinced that the electric car is practical on your average terraced street or tower block, so not quite as optimistic for the take up."

They're starting to put chargers in lamp posts in suburban streets and it's still possible (and will be getting easier) to charge your car in the growing charging network. You don't necessarily need a driveway to own an electric car.

"I also wonder how long it will take technology to make it practical for those who have to spend all day every day travelling for their job..."

95% of people drive less than 15 miles per day so current electric cars are fine for at least 95% of the driving population. The latest cars will do 200-300 miles on a charge. You can charge a Tesla to 80% in 30mins on their supercharge network.

The biggest barrier to ownership is availability and cost and they will both improve significantly in the next 10 yrs.

RE: The Trump Presidency

Ideally I'd like an electric car as my next car (second hand market is starting to pick up already) my current diesel is a pain in the arse, electric cars are far simpler on servicing (no dpf, no oil, no water, no sodding timing belts) never mind the pollution/running cost advantage. Initial costs will come down rapidly once the manufacturers finally get production rolling properly and battery costs are plummeting.

Electric cars become battery storage for the grid once the smart grid kicks in: imagine a million electric cars plugged in storing and levelling out grid supply - barely noticeable amounts to each individual car and that's before home battery storage becomes commonplace e.g. Tesla Powerwall.

The future is renewable and the UK should be trying to lead on this (we do have the two biggest off-shore windfarms in the world).

RE: The Next PM

It's OK though, we'll have an actual c*** in no. 10

RE: The Next PM

Always thought that the battered old Previa was a deliberate affectation like Columbo's raincoat to create the character of Johnson, all artifice. He won't be able to hide behind the cultivated persona for much longer.

That's the tory default when trying to get elected, promise tax cuts despite the fact the country's been stripped to the bone already.

RE: The Next PM

Our next PM debate

All (except Rory Stewart):

"Can I interest anyone in some magic beans?"

RE: The Next PM

Johnson, who wants to be PM and have to negotiate with the EU, USA, India, China etc in difficult circumstances is too scared to debate with other potential leaders and face difficult questions. Bodes well for the UK's future...

"They don't want us to leave, else we wouldn't have had two extensions already..."

They are absolutely not trying to stop us leaving, but not with a chaotic no deal. They don't want a failing economy on their doorstep dragging them down.

They want us to leave with a deal (although not at any cost) and they want to make sure that they are not seen as the ones who forced us into it so we can continue to play the blame game, hence the extension.

RE: Go Pro

The beginning was confusing, the middle rambled a bit but the ending was a masterpiece: whimsical, life-affirming with a heart-warming pay-off. Can't wait until Netflix pick this up.

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

Seriously, the people 'running' this country are a disgrace.

Parliament rejects possibility of stopping no deal brexit

Also, why is BoJo being given an almost free pass on the cocaine thing while Gove (quite rightly after his hypocrisy) is having his campaign pretty much de-railed?

I was literally in a pub (rare) when this game was on with Hope Solo there as a pundit. Only I wasn't facing the tv so didn't see her, just some of the goons watching it whose eyes came out on stalks when she appeared on the screen.

Seen the first episode and enjoyed it. Haven't read the book (or any other Pratchett/Gaiman efforts) so can't comment as a fan.

"Splitters!"

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

I'm really not that bothered about the court case one way or another, but some of the spurious, twisted logic to try and defend an obvious attempt to mislead the public (who don't on the whole look into the details when the headline is written on a bus in 4 foot letters) is pretty specious.

Fact is, the pretend-leaver was officially warned by the UK Stats Authority for doing so, but continued anyway.
