Beautiful. I'm looking forward to seeing more of the UK turn purple than ever before. It is vital that terrorist sympathiser Brother Korbyn remains as leader with poor old Dianne Abott whining about how awful white people. Then you've got clueless English hating Thornberry with her fake Received Pronunciation trying to lecture the little people on what to believe and how to vote.

Oh this is priceless. The Guardian, the voice of the left and remainiacs, charging 600 for summer work experience which is for profit bitching about City AM and giving the highest bidder the opportunity, whilst donating the fee to charity.

What does Guido offer for the same thing?

Minimum wage?

I have no idea.

Not paying is one thing. Selling it to the highest bidder for charity is one thing.

Charging for it & profiteering from it whilst calling out someone else is a completely different issue!

Despite all the Brexit kerfuffle it would seem the canny Scots are even less inclined to see another Neverendum

You know I was just saying that Krankie had not mentioned independence for all of a week. It's St Andrews day up there. I wonder if it will spur her on to mention it.

She needs to keep the dream alive however as it's a wonderful distraction.

I watched possibly the gobbiest female MP ever on the BBC Daily Politics today, Wednesday, Angela Rayner.

Wow! Even the master, Andrew Neil, couldn't get a word on edge ways.

She's one of Corbyns babes and, as ever, tipped for the top by the usual suspects.

I have a feeling that the penny is beginning to drop amongst some in the SNP that they can't argue on so many fronts and have such a good chance of remaining popular. The SNP have their hands full dealing with the thorny facts surrounding the detail of UK EU membership, whilst some are beginning to realise the true financial impact of Scottish independence. It seems they may be looking to concentrate their efforts on how to get the best deal when we leave the EU, and that means not constantly trying to pull the wool over the eyes of their electorate when it comes to a host of other issues.

I think the SNP's plan was to stop Brexit & keep the UK in the EU.

Then successfully go independant. Leaving the rest of the UK in the EU and Scotland out of the UK.

Thankfully that's not happening as the UK will be leaving.

I also watched Daily Politics on BBC2. Angela Rayner came across as a typical loud mouthed gobshite with no grasp of any facts. Even Andrew Niel was dumbfounded by her ignorance.
I was amazed to hear that she was the Shadow Secretary of State for Education.
I was less surprised to hear that she left school aged 16, pregnant and with no qualifications.
She is so far out of her depth. The Labour Party is dying.

Precisely, it's the shout of the ill informed bedwetters in society that a strong defensive capability is not worth the money spent on it.

Two superb offerings, the first written in a style and with a content that would suggest a life long exposure to the Mail....

The second, a more subdued effort, but, non the less still containing a level of descriptive erudition that aligns well with the target audience.

"I watched possibly the gobbiest female MP ever on the BBC Daily Politics today, Wednesday, Angela Rayner.

Of course, the fact the lady is now an MP, has a considerable amount, in comparison to many, an oft touted complaint on here about politicians per se of life / work experience and has, in fact, shown all resilience, attributes, and more, to develop herself......again, virtues much promoted by the right, seems to have escaped your notice.

As I said, I believe cyber warfare proses a far greater risk to the UK, and other nations, that the virtually non existent threat of nuclear war.
Have to disagree there, neither Iran or North Korea are to be trusted and both are capable of initiating a nuclear attack, Iran less so but any nuclear attack is a disaster and the threat certainly isn't 'non existent', IMHO..

" Whilst I agree that cyber warfare is an issue that needs constant defending from, it is not, on its own, something to be worried about by western democratic societies. There are constant attacks of varying severity but it is a bit of a cat and mouse game.

It's always gratifying to learn you concur at times, unfortunately, you seem to have a rather nave innocence thereafter.

We, the general public that is, have no real idea as to the extent of these attacks for fairly obvious reasons. However, we do know that they seem to be on the increase. It's far from a "cat and mouse" game therefore.


[I"]Cyber attacks are more of a threat to dictatorial regimes by providing the people with information and the power to rise up. The way Anonymous dealt with the Egyptian situation for example" [/I].

That's a relief to learn then.....all those wonderful democratic countries in the world, including the UK, should have no real concerns about the occasional glitch in the nations IT capability and the extent to which we are now so reliant on such, irrespective to the context.


" For a free western society I would be far more worried that a cyber attack was used to disable and confuse a nation prior to a more physical attack by some other means" .

Despite your assertations to the contrary, you have in fact now encapsulated the very criteria that causes concern. Credit where it's due therefore.

Quite why however, taking the UK as a case in point, thereafter the Russians would wish to physically invade us remains unknown and it was Russia and the nuclear option that emerged in this thread you may recall.

With a country already disabled and confused, and lets face it, so reliant are people on IT it wouls take very little disruption to their lives for serious panic to emerge, why then resort to nuclear weapons ?......the infrastructure remains intact and radiation free but with the population suitably cowed.

I wasn't aware NK had any missiles capable of reaching the UK....so that's of no relevance and as for Iran, well, there's a certain Middle Eastern country who would have no hesitation about using conventional weapons to negate even the slightest hint of any perceived potential usage of a nuclear weapon.

The trouble with the massively uninformed is that they still think the only way to deliver a nuclear device is via a missile.

Still no doubt the massively uninformed also fell for the 45 minute dodgy dossier and all the other BLiar nonsense, this is exactly why grown up thinking is best left to grown ups.

I could have sworn Trident was, erm, a missile launched from a submarine.....

Obviously, myself, and several million others, have been massively uninformed in this respect.

And, presumably, in the same way as you alone saw through all the deception and lies promulgated for Brexit, you alone saw through the dossier in question.
