FFS. 

Scotland now wanting to fuck off.  Markets in complete free fall.  Men on the street aggressively singing the dambusters theme tune.

Welcome to "MattBlack's Britain(TM)".

Dimbleby looks like an elderly man who still manages to maintain a strong erection and enjoy a vigorous sex life.

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

What has this got to do with the EU exactly?  And no one in the Algarve gets winter fuel payments.

Statistically the world is actually going safer every year. Being pessimistic I think that global warming will take care of that trend in about 20 years or less though.

Fuck global warming, antibiotic resistance will see our generation off first.

Which Bailout packages are you talking about with regards to Britain footing the bill?

Well theres this one

At least read and summarise the fucking article before posting a paywalled link.  That was a row over the EU using British money as part of the "European Financial Stability Mechanism" to pay for the Greek bailout.   Britain didn't pay anything towards that bailout via that particular mechanism, and that "row" was settled the very next day FFS.

I get that Matt supports an exit, passionately - and with a light sprinkling of nationalism.

But can some non UK folk on here comment on how people/politicians/media in their countries view the possibility of an exit?  Are people shitting it / not bothered / other?

Greece defaulted - was bailed out at massive economic expense to the EU and equally big democratic cost to Greece itself.  But Greece hasn't recovered and is entirely likely to default again.  There are other significant European countries who give every indication of potentially following Greece over the next couple/few years.  Germany can't afford to keep bailing the concept of monetary union out of the shit - and even if it could, it probably shouldn't be allowed to.

So you're aware that Britain's contribution to the Greek bailout via the EU is zero right?  We have not made a single contribution via the European Financial Stability Mechanism.  The only contribution we've made was via the IMF, so our (limited) exposure is fuck all to do with the EU anyway.

can you explain to me how the UK continuing to align itself politically to a currency it doesn't share, and that is more or less bound to fail, will be beneficial for the UK's economy?

I don't think in those terms, given that the UK isn't part of the Eurozone.

Out for me.

The EU is failing rapidly and certain southern Mediterranean countries are dragging it down the plug hole eve quicker.

Nothing to do with empires, it's a case of saving our own economy from the EU abyss.

Can you explain to me how exiting the EU will "save our economy" if the EU goes down this supposed plug hole?

Ventured into the local Tesco HYPERSTORE the other week for the first time in ages.  Couldn't find a zucchini for love nor money.  Absolute shambles. Gobsmacked by the down at heel clientele.

I went in last week.

There was a nong squatting Chinese-style in his blue plastic nong sandals, investigating all the biscuits, excitedly asking a shop assistant "Zhe shi shen me dong xi?" ('What is this thing?') at about 200 decibels, much to my annoyance.

"Bing gan" ('Biscuits')

"Bing gan? Tai gui le!" ('Biscuits? Too expensive!')

Fuck off back to your farm.

LOL!

Happy to report that Aldi's "Cornish Cruncher" rip off is as good as the real deal from M&S. 

They're also doing a great concession on men's giant leather shoes at the moment.  Shit is so cash.

a large number of you are so fucking smug because you're English, you assume that no one in their right mind from my part of the world may actually know something about the game.

I think this is quite a rude and condescending post towards the English, so i've reported you to board top-brass.  The very least you can do is thank the English for offering to fly you over to Fabric.

Please use this opportunity to reflect on your doltishness and say sorry.

Just re-watched my all time fave episode of ITV police procedural drama "Eggs n' Bacon" over on ITV 4 this afternoon.

It was the one where Eggs got put down and replaced with a new police dog called Bacon, leading to a number of humorous situations due to him sharing the same name as his police handler, Superintendent Nigel Bacon. LOL.

Had a good laugh despite some of the bouncers in there.  Dave Clark in room two was comedy.

Not really sure what to make of Sasha's set, enjoyed some of the more techno sounding stuff mid set but wasn't really feeling the prog.
