Did he get off his assault and harassment charges of a woman in australia and is his brother still suing him?


So the content is irrelevant.

I have no idea about the guy
I do not really bother with Twitter.

Its ok, the Torygraph are carrying the same story, insolvent, EY appointed, 24,500 jobs at risk. Well done Tories for letting the Chinese dump cheap steel in Europe. Who needs manufacturing jobs when we can sell services?

PWC and KPMG advising the government and lenders to British Steel. Quids in apart from for Deloitte's. Manufacturing is meant to go to the wall according to the ERG and their chief economist Patrick Minford. Owning company based in Jersey provided loans to British Steel at >9%.

I've drawn to the conclusion that a lot of Brits are sadomasochists. There isn't much to do in Lincolnshire.

It’s going to be awful for them. But on the flip side a remoaner did throw a milkshake so the jury is still out.

Phew, thanks. :thumbup:

I just checked in on the Scunthorpe News Facebook comments, I was reassured that this is because we send loads in aid to foreigners. It moved me, like the roar of a spitfire above me rattling my rib cage, soaring to a crusade against hitler who lived in Europe. I’m off to buy some bunting.

voting records from the European Parliament show that Mr Farage and other Ukip MEPs voted against a move to reform EU trade defence rules in 2014.


The UK government then double farked it later as stated in article above.

If we'd actually left last month, what, if anything, would be different now with regards to British Steels collapse today?
I'd also be interested to hear how a no deal Brexit might make it all better.

Are those jobs as valuable as a garden bridge or a tenth of a Grayling (I've lost track of how much his uselessness has cost us)?

The country is so batshit these days we should all just start saying there was actually a second referendum and remain won, then just get on with things.

If anyone asks questions just blame fake news, call them a traitor, and change the subject.

My family, all Brexiteers, are reliant upon British Steel. I served my time on that plant. They were lied to, manipulated, cheated and it was paid for by foreign money.

There should be riots in the streets right now.

Great little interchange in the house earlier where one of the MP's basically asked May if she could do something 'in the little time she has left' :lol:

I honestly don't think the UK has a leadership problem. Brexit is simply an unsolvable problem, it always was and always will be.

So from 2016 the UK govt has been selling out the UK (and EU) steel industry by scuppering EU attempts to counter the dumping, so as curry favour with China in the hope of a favourable post Brexit trade deal?
