What was it some idiot was saying the other day, refugees should go to a country near them? Yeah right, take your pills boy, but ask the doctor to bring in the men with white coats, you are in need of some urgent treatment.

BoZo hiring an ethics advisor is like hiring a driver when you do not have a car and would not recognise a car even if it run you over. The asswipe is devoid of any conscience never mind ethics. What is amazing though is how two so called "democratic countries" actually elected one each of these at the same time. As well as a few other countries around the world but at least they do not even pretend to be democratic.

What does this actually tell you though? :?

Are you trying to tell me that there is enough housing in the UK to accommodate another 2 million refugees to bring the UK up to par with Germany? Are you saying that the Germans dont regret their stupid move in hindsight, its all hunky dorey? Is this why the UK gov is spending £5m per day to put refugees up in hotels, because there is housing supply available? Is this why the UK gov offered people with spare rooms money to take in Ukrainian refugees, because there is space to accommodate them? How many did you take? Is this why there is no social housing available for Brits, because there is more than enough supply? How about not being able to afford to buy your own home or paying exorbitant rents, is it because there is an oversupply of available housing?

With that being said, are you then trying to tell me that public services are not already overstretched and can handle another 1 million refugees without there being a crisis? Like, it already takes longer than 6 months waiting to get something done on the NHS. It already takes 4-6 hours average waiting time at A&E room to see a doctor. Like are school classrooms not already overcrowded and children are falling behind because there are language barriers with foreign children. How about the roads like, are they not already in gridlock and you have to pay a toll to driving anywhere. Is this to incentive us to drive around in our cars? When was the last time you tried to get on a train in London during the rush hour? Are people not jammed packed in like sardines, where one dudes nose is stuck in to another dudes smelly armpit? Do you like living in La La land instead of reality?

What exactly are you trying to say by posting that dudes tweet Bordo? because I haven't a clue what he is trying to say.

And what is your problem exactly with people seeking refuge in a neighboring country? :?

To me, it seems that your position is more driven by an agenda, because your arguments arent really logical.

According to Rabb it was wrong for the ECHR to intervene? He clearly does not understand when a court can intervene on a policy decision depending whether it is executive order or approved by parliament.

Clearly we are not full dictatorship yet but we live in hope. Especially since BoZo took away the independence of the Electoral Commission and put his own hooligan in charge. I wonder why?

If EU institutions can still interfere in UK affairs then this “Brexit” is a bit of a joke…

It has turned out to be more than just a bit of a joke.

The main selling point for Brexit was for Britain to take back control of her borders and sovereignty. Unfortunately, that hasnt worked out well.

On top of that, anytime I try to import something from the UK to CY, I pay 19% VAT as well as the Euro to GBP exchange rate. Which adds about 35-50% to the list price in sterling, including the shipping costs. I didnt mind just paying the exchange rate but add the import duty and the time the package clears customs, things become much less competitive.

Germany is now becoming my preferred import market. No exchange rate, no import duty and faster shipping times from what I can tell.

In full: Lord Geidt's resignation letter
Telegraph reporters 5 hrs ago
Hundreds of Ukrainian refugees left homeless in England, data shows

Boris Johnson has released Lord Geidt's full resignation letter, the government's former ethics adviser who dramatically stepped down on Wednesday night after just 14 months in the role.

In recent weeks, Lord Geidt had made clear in public his discomfort over the lockdown-breaking parties in Downing Street that led to scores of fixed penalty notices.

He wrote:

Dear Prime Minister,

I appeared before the Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee in Parliament yesterday. I was glad for the opportunity to give an account of the recent changes to the Ministerial Code, to the Terms of Reference of the Independent Adviser, and to the support for the office of the Independent Adviser.

I was asked at length about my recent Annual Report. I alluded to my frustration, as made clear in my Preface, that you had not made any public reference to your own conduct under the Ministerial Code in the period since inquiries were underway. This would be especially important in the event that the Metropolitan Police found against you, which they did, and/or that Sue Gray's report included criticism of behaviour within the scope of the Ministerial Code, which it did.

Your letter in response to my Annual Report was welcome. It addressed the absence of comment by you about your obligations under that Ministerial Code up until that point. You explained that, by paying a Fixed Term Penalty, you had not breached the Ministerial Code. The letter did not, however, address specifically the criticism in Sue Gray's report about your adherence to the Nolan Principles (on leadership, in particular). Neither did the letter make mention that, despite being repeatedly questioned in the House of Commons about your obligations under the Ministerial Code (after paying a Fixed Penalty Notice), your responses again made no reference to it.

I reported to the Select Committee yesterday that I was satisfied that you had responded to my Annual Report to explain your position. I am disappointed, however, that the account you gave was not fuller, as noted above. Moreover, I regret the reference to 'miscommunication' between our offices, with the implication that I was somehow responsible for you not being fully aware of my concerns. These inconsistencies and deficiencies notwithstanding, I believed that it was possible to continue credibly as Independent Adviser, albeit by a very small margin.

This week, however, I was tasked to offer a view about the Government's intention to consider measures which risk a deliberate and purposeful breach of the Ministerial Code. This request has placed me in an impossible and odious position. My informal response on Monday was that you and any other Minister should justify openly your position vis-à-vis the Code in such circumstances. However, the idea that a Prime Minister might to any degree be in the business of deliberately breaching his own Code is an affront. A deliberate breach, or even an intention to do so, would be to suspend the provisions of the Code to suit a political end. This would make a mockery not only of respect for the Code but licence the suspension of its provisions in governing the conduct of Her Majesty's Ministers. I can have no part in this.

Because of my obligation as a witness in Parliament, this is the first opportunity I have had to act on the Government's intentions. I therefore resign from this appointment with immediate effect.

In response, the Prime Minister said he was "surprised" to receive Lord Geidt's letter, but thanked him for carrying out the role "admirably under very difficult circumstances".

Now the EU is taking legal action regardin the government outlinig the changes they are going to make to the International Agreement they have signed. These bastards have form. They are now saying they can resolve the matter bay negotiations but they have not put a single proposal forward thus far. Of course idiots love a bit of EU bashing so they are all for it.

In the meantime our trade with the EU has dropped by a third. Northern Ireland has done best out of Brexit, they can export tax free to EU and UK. So clearly they do not want the protocol to go. The only people that want the Protocol to go is the DUP and it is on political grounds.

Watch this space.

As if all that has gone on is not enough, those who are born after 5th April 1960 will now not be able to retire till they are 67
