And unduly lenient prison sentences will be jacked up. Sadly, there is no danger that the judges who handed out the lenient sentences will be made to line up in a public place for a compulsory slap on the back of the head, as administered by Special Agent Gibbs of NCIS when one of his gang screws up.

Oh, dear! Our Chancellor, P. Hammond, has turned out to be a Corbyn-lite Brownite, who thinks “investing” the taxpayer’s cash; in the Gordon Brown sense of investing in a pint of beer down the pub; will cure all ills. Bummer. Living within the nation’s means seems to be off the table whoever is in power.

The Chancellor, a Bremoaner, is getting a bit of a booting from Cabinet colleagues over his attempts to talk Britain down to “prove” that the Project Fear created to frighten the electorate during the EU referendum campaign was justified. But his colleagues are letting him know that rigging the present to make himself look right in the past just isn’t on.

The goverment is planning to root out illegal migrants who are working here and take action against people employing them in a bid to make employers recruit British people.
Ah really, that's interesting ? Do you have a link to that story ?

I read Amber Heard's proposal that would require employers to publish how many international staff they employ but I presume that must be a different article as no mention of rooting out illegals.

Truly baffling.

someone just wants to hold on to there power, saying things like that keeps certain types on side and avoids the pressure being applied to hold a real election.

Here's one, but there are lots of similar pieces in the nationals:

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...new-work-visas

The general idea seems to be to put British workers first and before cheap labour from abroad -- assuming there are still people here willing to work for not much money. And cut down on the number of people sneaking into the country dodgily and just overstaying.

Cheers, I'll have a read in a bit.

Yeah, can't see it being the most popular of proposals either within the party or with British employers.

"For the state must draw a sharp line of distinction between those, who as members of the nation, are the foundation and support of its existence and greatness, and those who are domiciled in the state simply as earners of their livelihood there."

Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, chapter 2.

Lots of stuff on social media about schools requesting parents via increasingly fraught emails and texts requesting information about the nationality and birthplace of their children (no need to respond if they are British born). Apparently many schools have never requested this information before.

Incidentally if you're asked this information about your children by their school you have the absolute right to refuse reply.

As a 36 year old fella born and bred in the south east of England, I've never felt this way about Britain before. I'm hugely concerned about what is going on, the increasing divide between indigenous and foreign population, being willingly slammed through society by our own government.

I'd like to say we live in interesting times, but we don't - We live in terrifying and increasingly disgusting times.

I feel the same sometimes. I feel like the world is upside down. Everything that used to be good and proper and natural and real has been replaced by twisted logic, depravity, lies, cheating and something sinister and contrived.

Fracking has just been approved at one site in the North West.

Thanks Downing Street, just not in your backyard eh?

Stick it up North like the rest of your dirty laundry.

British subs made with French Steel?

Nobody made a bid, lets keep costs down right, cheaper option?

Is cheaper better? If we had any British Steel left, big if, and it was more expensive, would the extra expense not come back into the economy with tax, N.I. contributions and new spending powers from the newly created jobs?

Why is cheaper really better when the money comes from government coffers anyway?
