  • Re: Boris Gate

    The Scots seem to think the EU will welcome an independent Scotland with open arms but I'm not so sure, especially if they cannot afford their subs.

      Meaning what exactly?

      That Scotland actually receives more than 16% above average?

        New Speaker elected - Lindsay Hoyle.

        Seems like a fair and decent bloke.

          I gather John Bercow was short of stature - rather like Lord Maximus Farquaad from Shrek.

                    Oh no, here we go. Comrade Corbyn wants to ban private jets now.

                    I bet he won't ban charter flights to Faliraki.

                      There was a very interesting letter from Jo Haines, Harold Wilson's former Press Secretary in the Times on Saturday which I feel is worth a read.

                      I will leave you all to form your own opinions.

                        Got to be struggling if quoting Joe Haines!

                        A couple of quotes from Wiki about him:

                        "Appointed the Mirror Group's political editor shortly after Maxwell's purchase of the Group, he also became a non-executive director of the board,[10] and from 1984 to 1990 he was the Mirror's assistant editor.[3] In 1988, the authorised biography by Haines of Robert Maxwell was published. The Mirror's then owner had commissioned the work to pre-empt a biography by investigative journalist Tom Bower, which Maxwell unsuccessfully attempted to have withdrawn. Haines' biography was generally considered to be encomium and was treated with a mixture of ridicule and extreme criticism by the media at the time of its release – The Times referred to it as "notorious". According to Tom Bower, Haines' biography was so flattering Maxwell would give out copies instead of business cards. A report in 2001[12] by the Trade and Industry Department inspectors into the collapse of Maxwell's business empire found that Haines "had accepted the position [with Maxwell] and ought to have discharged the responsibilities that went with the position. He therefore bears a limited measure of responsibility"[13] for the debacle"

                        "In 1991, only a few days after the death from HIV/AIDS of Queen's lead singer Freddie Mercury, The Daily Mirror ran a column authored by Haines.[14][15] In this column, Haines described the late bisexual singer as "sheer poison - a man bent - the apt word in the circumstances - on abnormal sexual pleasures", accused him of "touring the streets seeking rent boys to bugger and share drugs with" and called Mercury's "private life" a "revolting tale of depravity, lust and downright wickedness". In addition, after mentioning that AIDS' "main victims in the Western world are homosexuals", Haines went on to say that for Mercury's "kind", AIDS is "a form of suicide". The article – characterised by others as filled with "rabid homophobia""

                            Well he was Harold Wilson's Press Secretary so he couldn't have been that bad an egg, could he?
