Take it, it's a good source. But if you can cast doubt go right ahead.

Very hard to cast doubt on source you won't reveal - apart from the obvious one.

I see Brussels asked that the European flag be flown at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games.
It's a short story, they said f**k off.

Maybe they - the EU - should enter as one country like the USA. That way they'd probably win a few medals.

Exactly. That's what I'm saying. And THEY are the United States of Europe.

Not really, they're a union of independent countries, and I doubt any of them would like to change that.

Don't wish death on anyone, really.

Free speech and all that. I defend her right to say what she thinks, even if it is total bollocks.
There are mullah's on the street chanting death to none believers. Which is worse?

Both are as bad as each other.
Both are preaching death.
With you on free speech - but lies need to be called out.

If that's really true, why did we leave? And many of them in landlocked Europe are not feeling very independent anymore.

Good question AJK.

We know that's what the EU wanted with this ever closer political union crap. Hopefully, us leaving has warned the others to stop it it happening, as there seems to be a great deal of anti Federal EU sentiment about in Europe since.

No, of course there was all sorts of biased BS being spouted by both sides, but in the end, most of the voters' minds were made up long ago, and were going to vote their way no matter what was said. That's the way I saw it. Entrenched minds on both sides, unlike a general election, this was an issue people strongly linked with, as you'd expect.

Agreed.
But it's the below average people I worry about.
And, mathematically speaking, there are plenty of them.

Muller fruit corner or homeless priests, either way the street seems to be an overflow ward for the NHS and easy pickings for radical politicians and journalists (left and right). Surely the best way to keep hate speech and bollocks talkers off the airways it to better fund the NHS ? These people aren't happy and anti depressants are cheap.
