    Brexit

    In purely financial terms immigrants pay more in taxes than they take in benefits in the UK.

    US Elections 2020

    I dont think they would do this if there was nothing, that would just play into Trumps hands. Also if the do impeach Trump we will get Pence as President and I believe he is actually a worse person than Trump

    Brexit

    We were also told that proroguing Parliament had nothing to do with Brexit and now the same people as saying today's ruling is all about Brexit. If proroguing Parliament was not about Breixt how can saying that proroguing being cancelled is about Brexit

    Brexit

    When in recess Parliament can be recalled, and the conferences can be cancelled, Labour has just cancelled the rest of theirs, so business can still be done. Also proroguing Parliament puts an end to any bill that is currently in the parliamentary process. unless the Government chooses to carry them over where as recess does not. 12 bills were stopped including one protecting the victims of domestic abuse and 5 bills for post-Brexit arrangements for immigration, fishing, trade and agriculture, only 3 bills were carried over. The bills can be brought up again but all the work done is lost and they have to start again. Why would the Government that is determined to leave come hell or high water stop bills that would be necessary for the first day after Brexit Benn’s Bill states that unless a deal is reached with the EU or Parliament approves a no-deal Brexit by October 19th, the Government would be required to write to the EU seeking an extension to the Article 50 period until January 31st 2020. The reason that the other parties wont back a General election just now is in case the Tories win a majority and can then pass a no deal Brexit by the 31st. Why would they risk it when the bill they have passed would stop that from happening

    The allegation is that Trump order $400 million of military aid to be withheld unless Ukraine investigated Joe Biden and his son. Trump acknowledged that aid was frozen.

    Brexit

    This was not a lawful proroguing of Parliament, it was unlawful as all 11 law lords have ruled This is Parliamentary Sovereignty in action. We heard all through the referendum campaign that we had to take back our Parliamentary Sovereignty but now it is action it wrong. We have not had 3 years to scrtuinise a deal, there is currently no deal on offer as the one the May got is gone. Boris is trying to get a new deal and if he does it will be for Parliament to scrutinise that. If Boris was honest about this only being about a Queens speech them he could have prorogued Parliament for the normal 5-6 days but he did it for 5 weeks to run down the clock on Brexit. He has given unlawful advise to the Queen and should do the decent thing, which would be a first for him, and resign. Hell he is still saying that the law says we must leave on 31st deal or no deal when only a few weeks ago a law was past to say that no deal can't happen unless Parliament votes for it and that he must seek an extension if they wont.

    Tackling China by putting tariffs on all imports from China and then claiming the China is paying lots of money to the US treasury because of the tariffs. The man cant open his mouth without lying

    How the electric car dies

    The biggest issue with electric cars is many people cant charge them up at home, it is not an option so they are not an option. Until you can charged them up in seconds like a petrol car then they work for a large percentage of people. I only wish all the subsidies that have been put into electric cars and all the money spent putting up charging stations had been spend on getting hydrogen fuel cell cars on the road and putting fueling stations around the country as well

    Brexit

    Given the large number of people already having to use food banks, an estimated 590,000 in 2016-2017, and the large number of people in fuel poverty, around 11.1% of homes in England in 2016 which is around 2.55 million people any policy that is going to increase them is just stupid. https://news.sky.com/story/operation-yellowhammer-government-no-deal-brexit-documents-released-11807339 Lets not forget Medicine supplies will be "particularly vulnerable to severe extended delays" - Sorry folks that medicine you need it is stuck at the border Possible clashes between UK and EU fishing vessels The possibility of urgent action to ensure access to clean water if there is a failure in the supply of chemicals - although the likelihood of this is considered "low" - Might be low but not work risking

    Brexit

    The rebate is taken off what we are due to pay before we pay anything. So we at no point ever sent £350 million per week. Just like if you buy something that is on sale, you dont pay the full price then have them refund your money
  14. cossieuk

    Brexit

    Except the £350 million figure is a lie. It 2018 we paid around £13 billion to the EU, this is after the rebate which is deducted before we pay anything, this is £250 million a week. In the EU spent around £4.2 billion in the public sector in the UK in 2018. I can only find a figure from 2016 for what they pay to the private sector which is £2.3 billion, if we assume this is a average yearly amount then the UK has a net contribution of £6.5 billion or £125 million a week. The figure was a lie which many people still believe.

    Brexit

    Multi question referendum. First question, Leave or Stay. Second Question, if leave then deal or no deal. Second question only counts if first question gets leave We have had 3 years of lies about how once we leave everything will be so much better. So many lies about the EU. I hate that anytime anyone points out a negative about leaving the EU it is called scare-mongering. The last 3 years have been about 2 sides shouting at each other and no body talking about the real issues about brexit. The referendum was advisory so there was never any need to follow the result. How about when we have a referendum where neither side breach electoral law. Leading to a judge declaring that have the referendum being binding he would have had to overturn the result do the the illegal actions of the leave campaign. Remember the bus with £350 million for the NHS which was a massive lie Might not have been on the ballot, but the leave campaign constantly said we would get a deal. No one was talking about no deal. Many people have expressed since that they only wanted out with a deal I got little from either side, being in Scotland that is not really a surprise.

    Brexit

    I doubt the will of the people is a no deal brexit. Not one brexit mp of senor member of any of the leave groups campaigned for a no deal brexit, they all said that we would get a good deal. Now the same people are saying that we must leave come hell or high water, with some saying that no deal is the only acceptable option. Put the options to the public and see what they want, No deal, some deal or no brexit. Make the referendum binding unlike the last one

    Brexit

    It doesn't matter if you are anti brexit, pro brexit or pro no deal, what is happening is an unelected PM is suspending the democratic parliament to try and push thought a policy that he knows MP's would vote to stop. This sets a dangerous precedent

    Will be interesting to see what effect the Classic servers have on the population of the non classic servers. Could WOW classic be the WOW killer

    How to lose players and alienate games

    We all have a breaking point, but when you have just pissed off your player bases with a loot box scam and they called you out on it, maybe calling them ass-hats is not the best way to apologise. I suspect many off us here have had to deal with horrible customers at some point, but I doubt many would have say anything to the customer. Bitch about them internally with other staff but not to their face. That is a sure fire way to loose players

    Breaking: New Race Announced

    Given that the racial traits are so small and insignificant, what is the benefit of a new race other that the look slightly different. As for the ability to change race, class restrictions applying, who has reached max level playing one race that they didnt like. Surely you would notice you didnt like the look of that race when you were still in the starter zone and reroll
  25. From 2016-2018 the woman's team had earning of $50.5 million where as the men's team generated $49.9 million. This is not during the world cup. Given the world cup this year I would guess that they would be higher again this year for the women. These figures are from audited financial statements from the U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) as seen by the Wall Street Journal. In 2016 the Women generated $1.9 million more than the men
