There's lots of gripes on the site, but sometimes it's good to have a moan about everything in general and nothing in particular.

Well, it’s finally started, the UK political structure is in self destruct mode. Now watch what happens in the EU. Every corrupt rotten system always destroys itself from the inside by infighting.

It seems with no login we suffer from spam
But the thing to do is block Vietnam
Coming from Russia we have trolls
And China nothing but a**holes
We'll do the best that we can!

Sorry...

@grumpyoldwoman: until I saw your comment, I had always assumed "IMHO" stood for "in my HONEST opinion"!

Perhaps some of the not so humble posters you've encountered were under the same misapprehension as me.

According to Urban Dictionary, "honest opinion" ranks #6, with all the other spots being taken up by "humble opinion", so I guess I've been using it wrong all these years.

@grumpyoldwoman likewise those that say "to be honest" and "to be fair" are anything but.

Has anyone else noticed that people who use "imho" in their posts are usually anything BUT humble?

It's rubbish!' French president Macron BLASTS Brexit saying UK's bid to leave Europe 'can't be delivered'

In the years to come the remainers, MP's and young that wish to stay in the EU will mark their actions (if succsessfull ) as the time they enslaved themselves to the super state masters, by then it really will be too late. One of Brussels future laws for the UK, before the referendum put it on hold, was to have a standard working week across the EU ( special services excempt) cutting out all unnecessary overtime hours worked, thus putting more unemployed back to work. This and a raft of many other liberty constraining laws that could be imposed on us. The EU rulers has been far from truthful in their plans for the UK and the rest of their own people.
THAT'S WHY THEY ARE FIGHTING SO HARD TO REVERSE BREXIT.

I read quite a while ago that many young people think us older ones who voted to leave are idiots trying to ruin their future, when the opposite is true.

Apparently now these same young people think it would be ok to have another referendum because if the remainers won us oldies wouldn't get up off our sofas and start rioting.

Sadly deluded I'm afraid!

Far-right groups could exploit Brexit tensions - police.

If BREXIT is stopped or the remainers/ EU force another ref to get their way this country will see civil disturbance. The far right groups are a real threat within the UK and the police know this as fact. Reversing BREXIT will be seen as a betrayal of democracy. The UK is already a country split by greed, envy and angry mistrust with the establishment. The Government is caught between democracy or anarchy. One more thing to bear in mind, There are far more "have not's" in the UK that feel deserted and forgotten by the system, these are the people we must fear.

Well said, the royals are no more than DSS parasites. But the real enemies are the hangers-on, behind the scene protectors, the establishment that have their noses in the trough feeding on the system. And then on top of all those, we have the old fart royalists supporters that we see queueing up in wind and rain to wave to them as they pass in their rolls royces reinforcing their status quo. Thank what ever Gods there may be, the old order is coming to a close, maybe the younger royals are more in tune with the rest of us.

Duke of Ed car crash.
I very much doubt he was breathalyzed at the site of the crash. Just like I very much doubt he had his eyesight tested as per standard procedure after a RTA. This is the royal family don't forget. They are our superiors. The elite. They get what they want and they get away with what they want. It comes from centuries of self entitlement at the tax payers expense. Which would explain why within 24 hours of nearly killing two women and a baby he is seen driving again with no seatbelt in another huge car provided to him ASAP. It just doesn't occur to him to obey the rules. Anybody else driving in such a reckless, dangerous way at 97 would have their licence removed immediately by the police. And yet all we've had from the authorities is the usual bowing and scraping. Does he even have a licence? When is Britain going to stop fawning over this family of scroungers?

Just wait until the EU and the UK remainers reverse BREXIT, then the great revenge program from Brussels will start. The UK will be bled dry, if you think you are paying too much to them now, wait until you see the new amounts of money they want from us to support their failing system. And as for the new laws they will impose on us. As I have said already, the masters of Europe planned these tactics two years ago, divide and conquer.

The UK is now in the transitional state of dictatorship. Democracy is being slowly eroded by the rich and powerfull for their own benefit. We have all seen, and are witnessing the blatent attempt to reverse the BREXIT vote, (engineered from day one after the referendum). This massive conspiracy is being conducted from the EU and the British Parliament's remain MP's, who are workimg hand in hand with the people controlling the destiny of Eupope and the world. If they succeed I fear an even greater increase in ultra radical organizations that believe violence is the only answer, as we are seeing in Gremany and France. As the great parliamentarian Edmund Burke said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

Not long to go before we all start to hear the whining and whinging from over spend Xmas. To date, the figures show an ever increasing number of the families in the UK are in serious financial difficulties due to their brainless CREDIT CARD spending attitude. Then we have to listen to do-gooders defending these morons saying they are on poorly payed wages, and the poor little things "HAVE BEEN TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF BY THE SYSTEM." Where has intelligence within the human race gone?
