It will be interesting to see how many people signed that 2nd eu referendum petition  that have a registered address at the ' Sea of Fecundity,  the Moon'.

Glenn, I find you vaguely amusing sometimes, but you are a washed-up embittered old cunt and people like you have voted for the ruination of my country.

Cheers.

On a similar note, many people didn't like the result of last nights footie match. Perhaps if we get enough signatures together through an online petition, we can force a rematch and hope for a better outcome that suits our needs.

What annoys me is the amount of people who feel upset about the result but didn't bat an eyelid throughout the whole campaign.

And they vent their anger through hashtags

#the48
#notinmyname
Etc.....

Where was all the pre-vote social media support that could have helped clinch it?

Just read of someone who voted remain, now legitimately worried about losing their job to an EU worker as their London office may relocate.

Well well.

Only 70% of the nation voting? Daft cunts.

So....to sum it up. Nearly all the major Cities in England , Scotland and Wales all voted by huge margins to stay and all the provincial hillbillies voted to leave. Daft cunts.

Birmingham is provincial?

if we could find a way to stop the autocrats of Brussels and Strasbourg plundering our collective wealth to pay for yachts and golden bathtubs while our pensioners petrify in rat-infested dungeons.

Because reclaiming the money spent on those yachts and limousines would make all the difference, right?

Our pensioners are 90% miserable old fuckers that clog up the high streets at lunchtimes, I wish they'd keep them in that rat-infested dungeon between the hours of midday and 2pm every day.

It's be a fucking good start.

We should also stop giving winter fuel allowance to all those pensioners who live in the Algarve for 11 months of the year. Twats.

I don't get this whole 'they get paid loads of money so they are scum' attitude. Where does being really good at your job so you get paid well end and being scum who get paid loads of money for doing nothing start?

You want to get paid loads. Earn it.

Who's calling them scum?
And what evidence points to them being good at their jobs? (serious question)

I am genuinely interested in how we would go about reforming the union if we stayed in, and with this lot at the helm and the current system of its leadership, I am not sure it would actually be possible.  Hence my continued Leave decision.

Lurking on from my comments on the EU Presidents, I just cobbled this together in the vain hope that even if you are not voting leave, you can certainly see that the EU requires plenty of reform.

The 5 (8?) EU Presidents
Please note values stated may be outdated - they get an annual pay review which rises above inflation + its usually backdated by the look of things.


President of the European Parliament - Martin Schulz
€306,655 basic salary + €304 daily allowance + 2 limousines (with chauffeurs) + 33 assistants.

President of the European Council - Donald Tusk
€306,655 basic salary which equates to €369,669 including expenses.

Presidency of the Council of the European Union - Mark Rutte
€157,287 basic salary + daily allowance + residential allowance

President of the European Commission - Jean-Claude Juncker
£245,000 plus a residential allowance of £36,844 and a monthly expense allowance of £1,135. Pension of £52,500 for life from age 65.

President of the Court of Justice - Koen Lenaerts
€256,000 basic salary + an allowance for entertainment and a 15 per cent residence allowance, a judge can earn more than €300,000 a year. There are also household, children and education allowances if a judge has children, worth more than €9,500 for one child. Each judge is entitled to a car and chauffeur.
(for more info see http://www.irishtimes.com/news/crime-an … -1.2491639)


Also:

President of the European Central Bank - Mario Draghi
£296,000 basic salary + perks (2012 values, will have gone up since then)

President of the European Court of Auditors - Vítor Manuel da Silva Caldeira
(can't find value)

President of the Eurogroup - Jeroen Dijsselbloem
(can't find value)


They all get preferential EU tax rates rather than their "home" country tax rates.

not sure what the point is here? that they are paid a lot to do a job with a lot of responsibility?

what's the rate of pay for presidents of massive private businesses?  surely more than that?

My point is that none of these men were elected into their roles by the public they serve.
Business leaders are just that - they run a private venture in the hope for personal gain.
If you want to compare the 2 then fine, happy to say that these presidents do their job for massive personal gains.  Yes there is a lot of responsibility, but they should also be accountable and electable / sackable.

Boris was wrong tonight. He said there are 5 unelected EU Presidents. And he challenged us to name them.

Well according to Wikipedia there are 7 presidents.

Who to believe?

I still enjoy the Satoshi Tomiie nubreed, it was one of the first "prog" compilations I picked up.  I managed to hunt down a fair few of the tracks on vinyl, and went a bit mental for anything that came out on Saw recordings as a result.

Lush times.

PS I'm only 33, hope that helps.

This looks good actually.

I specifically asked for the same number on the finale set as my main set, but it never happened and now my OCD has kicked in and I am well jel.

Lol yes, it was somewhere between being at a game fair and a day at Ascot. 

A nasty site seeing gaggles of middle class mums descending into Pimms fuelled guffaws at the site of some guy juggling on a unicycle.
