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.

Can anyone tell me if John Bercow the speaker in the commons is under police armed protection?

Great watching the UK tearing itself apart over BREXIT. The haves and have nots at one anothers throats. Keep at it boys and girls, remember, you'll have to sleep in the bed you make.

When the next general election is held in the UK the Tory party will cease to exsist. What will follow will be the total destruction of this country under a dictatorship. Democracy in the UK is all but lost.

I'm beginning to get the feeling we'll never leave the bl00dy b0££0cking EU. Depressed now.

I recently wanted to print something on the GOM's printer instead of mine as it does colours better. However many times I sent the document it just wouldn't print. Finally I looked at the drop down list of printers and discovered that the printer I was trying to use was listed as a fax machine; not because of anything we had done I hasten to add. So it was trying to print it as a fax.

After many minutes trying to work out why this had happened I hit on the solution. I said to the GOM "well evidently even though it was born a printer it has decided it wants to identify as a fax machine".

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.
