My life, Question Time audiences are like a load of seals.

"Immigrants brings some benefits to the UK" CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP

"I'm pro EU" CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP

"Who would work in our NHS without immigration" CALP CLAPAPL CALPS LCA PD

+ Owen Smith, the Pontypridd MP made a lot of votes by walking around on Pontypridd RFC's pitch claiming he would do everything possible to keep the team professional.

He won.

Haven't heard from him since.

Not that it would have mattered in South Wales.

With respect to the people of Britain, I have confidence in some. Less in others. I don't have confidence that the immigrants out brigade who are driving the Out campaign have any of the right answers or frankly the right reasons.

The only way the pound is rising in the event of Brexit is if it has sunk so far already it has a dead cat bounce. Almost all the economic uncertainty will be on our shoulders in that event, not Europe. Of course they could both fall against the dollar (say) but the colossal uncertainty Brexit would deliver for our economy would weigh heavy. Laying back and thinking of England won't change that.

We're going to be screwed whatever happens, so you're just talking about the difference between being screwed and being screwed.

In a poll reported in the Sunday Post, 52% of the respondents described David Cameron’s financial affairs as “morally repugnant”. Are there really that many envious socialists loose in the world unkilled?

Burrocraps in action

St. Ockport council has banned traders from handing out red roses on St. George's Day in the town-centre market hall. The council, run by the Trivial Democraps, claims that the roses could be interpreted as a bribe to persuade people to vote Labour in the upcoming council elections next month!!

The Mossack Fonseca papers are a tiny scratch in the enormous ledgers of offshore business. In EU or Out of EU, Labour or Tory, it is all frankly chickenfeed compared to the impact of tax havens. I think right now I would vote for any party that was prepared to sort out these British dependencies and end the enduring scandal that they represent.

The Government drags its feet over the BVI because it's offshore financial industry is apparently such an important part of the economy of the BVI. The population of the British Virgin Islands is 28,000 for goodness sake. We'll drag our feet when the job prospects of 15,000 steel workers are threatened, but when some slick lawyers on a desert island are bleeding us dry, we jump.

The BVI, Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, the lot of them. Cut them all loose and make it illegal for any company registered in any of them to do any business whatsoever with the UK. Or the EU, frankly. That's the only way to sort these places out. If you want to register a company in the BVI, fine. But it'd better be a fishing boat because you won't be so much as selling a cupcake over here.

The poor don't pay taxes, they are too poor. The rich don't pay taxes, they can afford fancy lawyers. It's just the people in the middle and it stinks.

Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad

J. McDonnell, Corbyn Labour’s shadow chancellor, has thrown in the towel. He has admitted that Labour is hopelessly unelectable and he thinks the only way he and his buddies can get back onto the gravy train is to persuade the public sector unions to go on permanent strike and for looney left mobs to storm Parliament and evict the Tories.

Which raises the interesting prospect of the EU sending in its army to restore order in battered Britain and McDonnell and his pals ending up in the Tower.

Apart from the top 4% of earners (is it?) who pay 50% of the tax bill.

Well, yes, apart from them.
