Language like 'disgusting pricks' used in an above post just devalues the UK, and we won't be taken seriously by anyone. We can look forward to more of that if we elect Farages muppets. It's the language of hate, and if we make decisions based on that, we're done for.

Re: Brexit (New Poll Added)

Brexit Party formed in Welsh Assembly 'with IMMEDIATE effect' - Tory and Ukip members QUIT


FOUR Welsh assembly members (AMs) have sensationally joined the Brexit Party “with immediate effect” to give Nigel Farage’s party their first political representation at a national level.

Good old reckless Mark - never saw a bandwagon he didn’t want to jump on...

Pre-2014 - Conservative
September 2014 - defects to UKIP
April 2017 - defects from UKIP to Conservative Group
April 2019 - defects from Conservative Group
May 2019 - defects to Brexit Party

I decided to do a bit of data mining on how corrupt the EU is as Transparency International publish a global index each year and you can download the complete data set (here - https://www.transparency.org/files/c...ullResults.zip) and have a tinker..

The least corrupt nation globally is Denmark and the worst is Somalia. The UK is in joint 11th place behind 6 EU countries, 2 EFTA countries and New Zealand, Singapore and Canada.

For reference, the USA is in 22nd place and China is in 87th place.

There is a tab in the data set to filter just on EU countries. For EU countries, of course Denmark is the least corrupt. The UK is in 7th place and the most corrupt is Bulgaria which is in 77th place globally. If you average out the scores, if the European Union was a country, it would be in 29th place globally, between the Bahamas and Portugal.

The EU score seriously get dragged down by countries such as Croatia, Romania, Hungary, Greece and Bulgaria!

Of course what isn't in this data set is the EU as an organisation so we will need to take Micks word for it that the EU is corrupt as an organisation

Good News. Chlorinated chicken will be coming out way soon ! Enjoy.

However, on Brexit, I get a lot of pop ups from the Daily Express and Telegraph. For example, looking now, I have three Express stories, two Telegraph stories and one BBC story on Brexit. What's strange is that I rarely look at the Express web site as it's horrible to look at and even more rarely look at the Telegraph as it's paywalled. When looking at what the press are saying, I generally use the Daily Mail for all my pro-Brexit news along with the Independent for my pro-Remain news.
Just for balance, a very similar story in the Telegraph.

Never give up trying eh, just look at Tm's deal coming back for another go

if people couldn't keep on having another go and trying to succeed there wouldn't be any women drivers on the roads.
