“The UK is as isolated as somebody who refused to join the Titanic just before it sailed “

      Yes, he would. That’s because he knows what he’s talking about.

      It feels like all that talk of yesteryear – was it Masstricht or Lisbon – when the European-train was said to be “…leaving and we had to be on it or left on the platform to fail forever…” , like all those other duff countries like Switzerland and Norway.

      Can we get back on the platform now please? Then the train can steam off and crash without us.

        The train can leave…

        and it can take a couple of 100s of 1000s of illegals with it that sneak on the Belguim – Lille – London no passport checks express !!

    Well it's a thought says:

    Watching SKY before Malloch some idiot , he was all gloom and doom, he seemed to be trying to bury Britain for doing the dishonourable thing, wonder how many houses he has in Europe and I wonder if he was thinking his taxes would go up and not about Britain.

    Have we had any reaction from a member of the distinguished Kinnock family yet? Expect the Beeb are getting a car round to Kinnock towers as I write.

    I business, it’s often the case that the very best deals for you are the ones you walked away from. Hard to do, but the right decision. The rose-tinted specs brigade of enthusiasts for joining in with everything in Brussels don’t understand this.

      SpAd says:

      Lefties have little concept of business – most of them have jobs which simply involve attending meetings about the distribution of money that isn’t their own. They don’t walk away from a bad deal, because the consequences of not doing so are never borne by them or their organisation.

      Their instinct is more collectivist – which is why they unfailingly group together lemming-like, even when the path clearly leads to disaster.

    Ed Miliband says:

    I don’t know what to do so I’m just going to say “Milly Dowler” today 1000 times as it makes me popular for some reason.

    By the way Steph Flanders was a crap shag, Ed Balls was better for both of us.

    The healthy sceptic says:

    The “deal” will not solve the EU’s anaemic performance, or the severe liquidity problems of the Eurozone.

    Yet 23 of 27 of the country level political leaders in Europe are in favour of it.

    This indicates to me that 23 out of 27 countries have idiots in charge……

    Britain is better off isolated from such a grouping. Do not keep the company of idiots !!!!

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
