Also no character or personality.

The Labor Party need to do something because he just doesn't cut it. Not Prime Ministerial like Theresa.

The last leader they had was Blair himself.


:lol: :lol: Isn't THAT where it all started as 'Tony' pandered to His own aspirations to become a 'Wartime Premier' ?. :lol: :lol:

Nice post mate, I think you are aiming for a 'Full House' on the forum...... be My guest. :wink:


You mean you disagree with Blair.

Oh dear! I know many a Cypriot who voted for him just because.

At least he looked the goods and displayed leadership. He had no choice but to become a wartime leader.

The stuff in Syria would have still occurred regardless.


The only thing He ever 'Looked' like was a 'Grinning Snake'......... check it out !. :lol:

On a point of factual information, Geordies are from Newcastle and I believe people from Sunderland are know as the 'Mack-ems'. Newcastle actually voted 'remain' and Sunderland 'leave'. So perhaps it is the Mack-ems that are thick - or at least 60% plus of them, and Geordies are less inclined to be thick.

I was guided by the fact that my former brother in law was a thick Geordie. He worked in a now derelict factory where, with his mates, he was determined to "get" the management. I do remember the word Mack-ems, are they the ones who hanged a monkey thinking he was a French spy?

I confess to having no expertise in the subject but that sounds like quite an expensive undertaking.

Spot on Jerry, it topped out that the monkey was actually a 'German' spy. :lol:

Not if you already have production facilities in Europe and you want to build a new assembly line for a new model, in this case the new Nissan Juke. The new line would cost wherever it was built.

That means they were always going to move with the new model.

It was either build the new line in Britain or EU.

a lot of doomsayers around, but i only see positives.

I believe that Geordies referred to people from Sunderland as the Mack-ems because the shipyards used to be in Sunderland and Newcastle was the main port. It was the folk in Sunderland who 'make them', which becomes 'mack 'em' when pronounced the local way. Newcastle voted 49% leave, so there certainly are quite a few thick Geordies!

and what if they are the smart ones? i can't understand how you can make that judgement right now when the UK is awash with migrants who only choose the UK because of the NHS.

The country is being overrun.

Economically, what if the UK is doing better than most EU countries? Who would the thick ones be then?

You are will informed on a great many issues, but, quite frankly, if you have never heard of a zero hour contract, you don't know much about what is happening in the UK at the moment.
