It's great for skilled workers but if you're unskilled you're always at risk of redundancy and offshoring

The Far right don't exist you dribbling moron. Unless you want to call normal working people who care about their country "far right"

Why is no one in the UK voting for Labour any more?

As for cheaper wages - now the UK has closed off the route to cheap imported European labour - our wages are rising.

You and your ilk and the conspiracy theorists are the far right.

You're a little emotional though tonight and it is a bit late so time for me to hit the hay.

I agree the rise in wages is a good thing. My point is that free movement is an invention of capitalism not marxism

This is the best example of why the pundits and experts always cringe when a lifelong senator attempts to become the executive. For 50 Years Joe Biden has not held a real job. He is trained in the art of "perception", "blame", "excuses" and "deflection". The example he sets is easily seen in the behavior of his son.
Please don't say being a politician and campaigning is actually a job. It is a privilege to serve and the founding fathers of this country never imagined someone would make a permanent vocation of being a senator. Gentlemen of the day had to return home to take care of their businesses and farms. This is what you get when you do not have term limits. This is what you get when you elect a president who has never actually worked.

Trump left 2500 troops in Afghanistan. Using your military experience, explain how 2500 soldiers could stop the Taliban?

Good look finding where I said they should have stopped the taliban.

The withdrawal should have been done correctly and in an orderly fashion, not something that provided scenes like something out of World War Z.

Certainly worth an inquiry. Lives were lost and the evacuation - however successful in the end in terms of numbers - was carried out under enormous pressure, as if they hadn't had months to plan and prepare.

There would have to be an inquiry, as there was with Benghazi, to find out who made what decisions with what intelligence. It needs to be understood what mistakes were made: were there intelligence failings, was there poor decision-making, what were the motives for the decisions that were made, were there practical/logistical failings, etc.

It may be that a full inquiry provides enough information to lead to an impeachment. Depending what role Biden personally played.

Obviously the mini-Nazis are all pissing their pants at the prospect of an impeachment, either out of spite, revenge, or simple stupidity, but there is no valid reason for an impeachment at this point. That would be why an inquiry would be needed.

That's not changing, we're going through a global version of arbitrage due to the world getting smaller every day combined with countries with a lower standard of living that can provide lower input costs. This will equalize when countries around the world stabilize at the same standard of living, which is not going to occur for a very long time.

The way the world is going, the unskilled are going to become the people in The Expanse living on "basic", which was not a good life. So get a skill and be good at it I tell you.

Isn't this the smoking gun that the view is correct that 50-100k US soldiers would be required to repel that number of insurgants, and then protect the country? The never ending war.

Pakistan's involvement though must be investigated properly.

It is an abomination. Hopefully the Supreme Court will revisit it as challenges make their way through the lower courts. But as it stands, one late period could result in a woman not being able to get an abortion in Texas, let alone if that pregnancy was due to incest or rape. Shocking.

If they had any interest in stopping it, they would have done.

The theocratic majority on the court have already shown a certain disdain for legal precedent, and are clearly itching to overturn Roe V Wade. This is just a step on the way towards it.

This thread has rapidly become an attempt to distract attention away from Mr Biden and his failings.

Mickey, read the thread title again.

Abortion rights and the threat to that in the US is a huge issue IMHO, so kindly take your shiite somewhere else...m'kay.

Interesting to find out it isn’t the only bounty hunter law on the books here. Most are apparently around reporting on pollution.

I am taking bets to see which state now attempts to use this construct to pass stricter gun control legislation, enforced by Joe Public reporting. Of course the gun lobby should have the financial muscle to force a test case to make the issue “ripe” for adjudication. Watching to see if the clinic wait it out pending the Mississippi case or push the issue.
