  1. Perhaps a transcript of a call where he is asking a for dirt, or maybe texts between officials stating that aid is linked to an investigation. Just spit-balling here

    What makes it so much worse is that the next time he has a reusable mug, people will just think he is only doing it for the photo, which he will be. I doubt the press would care if he had just used the disposable one. This could be his bacon sandwich moment
  3. Not a parent, but I am an uncle, and I dont know how I would cope if my nieces and nephews had to plan for school shootings. I cant imagine how a parent must feel. All gun violence is an issue but dickheads shooting other dickheads is less of a priority then stopping mass shooting in schools, shopping malls etc
  4. I assume you have an issue with having to register your car with the DMV Nothing will stop all tragic events. N o one with any common sense thinks that it will. You really think your gun will stop the Government if the wanted you dead. In a fight between the the US military and the US civilian population my money would be on the military. They could take you out with a drone any there is nothing you could do to stop them. And yet the US leads the way in mass shootings by quite some margin. Gun right ≠ human rights, all over the world. There any man

    To be fair the clip war really funny, he looked like a kid being told he cant have coffee cause he is not old enough
  6. The Senate hasn't done anything, McConnell wont put the bills to the Senate to be voted on. If the Senate did vote and voted them down, then fine you could say they did their job but to not even given then the chance is wrong. No one person should have that level of power. So because you cant solve all of the issues you dont do any thing at all. That is just a stupid idea. Surly doing something to try and tackle the high levels of mass shootings is worthwhile. No kid should every have to go to school and have a drill for what to do in the event of an active shooter. If

    I doubt many illegal immigrants are paying tax as tax is collected from your wages by your employer. Fraud accounts for around 1% of the benefits bill in the UK so even if it was all done by illegal immigrants, which it is not, there would still be a net benefit in financial terms

    In purely financial terms immigrants pay more in taxes than they take in benefits in the UK.
  12. 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

    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 a
  16. 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
  18. 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
  19. 6 Free Batman games on the Epic Games store https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/collection/batman-free-week The Arkham collection and 3 Lego Batman games. Each of the 2 packs is normally £47.99 on the Epic Games store but its the Batman 80 anniversary so gets them and dont give WB any money
  20. 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

    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 an

    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
  24. 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.
