Typical that someone like Soubry who has been rabidly vocal in her determination, to block and ignore by any means, the referendum result and has herself used belittling language towards Brexit voters, should cry foul now and demand the police do something about it. Hypocrite.

So true , Pot and Kettle to my mind.
As Capt.Mainwaring used to say "They don"t like it up "em "

:cheer: :cheer:






You've even got that wrong, Topsy:laugh: :laugh:






LOL.LOL. tell me what"s wrong ???

Capt Mainwaring had many catchphrases but that wasn't one of them -
Try Lance Corporal Jones and his old memories of fighting the "Fuzzy Wuzzies"

From the video clips I've seen of this group calling themselves "Yellow Vests UK", they do a bit more than heckling - they look quite intimidating - a few of them were arrested recently for public order offences when throwing smoke bombs on Westminster Bridge.

That James Goddard chap seems Hell bent on getting his 15 minutes of glory - he's the chap who said every Muslim in U.K. should be deported - I saw a video clip of him shouting and cursing a policeman, telling him the police were "fair game" and he'd give them a war every Saturday and also verbally abusing the officer, saying he "wasn't even British" - what a Prat, he's lucky not to have been arrested.
I haven't seen him do anything physically violent but his body language and speech is very intimidating - I've seen idiots get arrested for less provocative behaviour towards Police Officers after a Saturday night out. I think maybe he is hoping to get arrested, so he can do a bit of "Tommy-Type" martyrdom.

I feel really sorry for the Police, they have to police peaceful protests in an even handed way, without showing political favour, but also keep the public safe from the aggressive, intimidating, violent and criminal behaviour of thugs and individual extremists within any protest group.


Eira I watch Sky mainly their Politics Live in the morning and ever since the referendum all I've seen is the EU flags being flown and one always trying to disrupt the interviews. It's only been in the last couple of weeks that I've seen Brexit supporters.

On Politics Live this morning they said the guy you were talking about was vocal in the Free Tommy Robinson demonstration and he films himself and has got many different names on social media a right trouble maker by all accounts.

Not sure how true it is, but on LBC last night a woman called in to say that at one demonstration she attended supporting Brexit the police pulled a 13 year old girls hair, I think I do recall seeing an article on this, but didn't read it.

I think it's all disgraceful and no need for any of it.


Well, here's a dilemma - neither you nor I have the evidence of our own eyes to decide on what to believe - so, do I believe only in the images that are beamed into your living room via Sky TV Programmers (which I cannot see) or do I believe what my old friend of 45 years standing, who lives in London and works in Westminster, tells me?

I'll have to ponder on that one.

Not sure what you meant, Topsy - but I think L Cpl Jones was talking about shoving a fixed bayonet up someone's backside!

When I said "Sure all knew what I meant " I meant the character.

Glad you enlightened me ,

Negotiations have been painfully slow, business says we must have a deal to preserve jobs, the Governor of The Bank of England warns against No Deal while on the other hand some MPs are advocating walk away. Now it seems there is plotting on both sides of the house to stop a No Deal situation. Stick the Irish border into the mix and we have this awful mess.
If we had been able to leave straight after the referendum result maybe even the most sceptical remainers would have just 'got on with it' - but anyone with any knowledge of the situation knew that was not possible. Our grandchildren will most likely negotiate to get us back in again at some time in the future ! Just as oldies look to the 'glorious past' so will the young. That is how the pendulum of history swings.
I put it to you, if the vote had gone the other way, would leavers have accepted the result ?
The country is divided, even HM the Queen alluded to that in her speech, lots of ordinary people are just
plain sick of it while others are worried sick about it.


I have not heard any MPs say they are changing their minds about which way to vote in the "meaningful vote" (I.e. non binding vote). However, as weeve probably seen before opinions can change, and some labour MPs may defy the party whip and vote in favour in the end, but who knows.

The DUP must feel in a strange position, having to agree with a leader in jeremy corbyn they would not normally think of as an ally, but they say something about life throwing up "strange bedfellows" in difficult circumstances don't they (or something like that).
