Just out of interest, where is this expansion that is happening soon?
If you are referring to those little Balkan countries who want to join, it seems they have a long way to go to meet EU standards.
Turkey of course has written itself out of consideration.

This is confusing, should I be in MkI or MkII?

And if any of those small (Balkan) countries did suddenly get fast tracked into the EU, there's hardly a nation in (western) Europe that wouldn't want clauses written into their accession period that limited free movement for at least 5, possibly 10 years.

I suppose that Ukraine, for purely political, certainly not economic reasons might be fast tracked in but the same would apply if they (stupidly) were.

It's extremely unlikely that Ukraine would be invited in when their government doesn't even control parts of its own territory.

Edit: Apologies for being dragged into EU discussions in the UK thread.

Middle England denizens have long been noted for their hypocrisy when it comes to condemnation of benefit claimants and indeed anybody who does conform to their societal and career expectations, thus the comments by a Tory Minister may well touch a few nerves both on here and in the real world. Be interesting though to see how much effect this proposal has on those happily indulging themselves in this manner whilst professing to live pure, honest and virtuous lives.....

Not unrelated in fact to the comments made by JB's favourite Mayor and their, ahem, "recreational use only habits "

Still giving a 404 for me.
Perhaps the Grauniad is objecting to being abused on PPRuNe?
Never mind...

Follow the link and it gives an option to go to the Guardian front page where the opic referred to gets top billing. How difficult is that?

Thank you. Strangely enough I had realised that.
The purpose of a URL is to lead directly to the page in question.
Going via the home page only works as long as the article still appears there, in which case the URL is redundant anyway.

So, with all the problems many are having accessing this thread easily and the start of a new thread, can we finally stop using this one and all go to the new one now... please.

Just found a way to get to this thread, after several days of trying, without success.

The problem may be associated with the "last page" not actually pointing to the proper last page, together with what looks to be loads of empty page references extending way beyond the real last page. I played around manually editing the URL for this thread many times, and eventually landed on this page using this edited URL: UK politics - Hamsterwheel (which points to page number 542).

The "last page" URL seems to be: UK politics - Hamsterwheel which points to a page (number 560) which doesn't exist, and presumably something then picks up this incorrect page address and tried to redirect it to the true one, with that process falling over for quite a lot of users for some unknown reason.

I would support the view that if this thread can't be fixed so that it works for everyone, the simplest solution would seem to be to lock it and let the Mk2 thread take over, as at least that does seem to work reliably.
