1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

Oh Britain, what have you done (part ∞+22)?

    Oh I wasn’t thinking about a proxy war thousands of miles away. Something more existential.

    Johnson's call to court is a tad unfair.

    Surely, Farage, Gove, Hoey and Stuart (at least) should also be there alongside him?

    Predictably, Poundland Trump pulls a Trump-

    “Acting for Johnson, Adrian Darbishire QC, told the court last week that the application by Ball had been brought for political purposes and was a “political stunt”.

    Is that a spoonerism relating to Johnson?

    If it was a Ducati it was probably capable of doing that itself, Italian electrics and all!

    Most of the Edinburgh police seem to be where I live at the moment. Apparently the gun used in the Bradley Welsh murder was found in a car-park close to my house - so expecting a door-to-door visit sometime soon, as I reckon I've walked the dog past where the gun was found about 20 times since the murder.

    So you are either banged up in Saughton nick or live around The Pleasance. When I think of it did you not mention Dean Village sometime?

    I'm in Balerno. Sounds like they must have come this way out of town (and I've heard rumours the guy that's in the frame for it is from Currie) as the car was spotted in Kirknewton. There is a small car-park with re-cycling bins etc. at one end and it looks like that might be where the gun was dumped (if the local rumour mill is to be believed anyway!). If so then I've walked the dog past the spot about 20 times since it was dumped - so his sniffer dog credentials are taking a battering...

    I kept voting Labour because Jim Davidson promised to **** off if they got in but he never did. So caveat emptor and all that.

    Oh to be rid of Sean Connery and Phil Collins.

    Mind, those two scumbags already lived as tax exiles when they made their threats to leave.

    I had Stephen Hendry and Paul Daniels in mind when I voted. I think the Sunday People actually sent a removal van to Paul and Debbie’s house after the 1997 elections.

    Never once have I told anyone here or elsewhere "how well I did working for a right wing rag".

    I worked my bollocks off getting to the top of my profession as editor of an evening newspaper. But you don't mention that. My wife worked hard as well and she contributed to the house as much as I did. But you don't mention that. I don't have a car but there's a thread on here with people waving their c@cks over their outrageously expensive cars. Will you be casting an eye over their socialist credentials? No thought not.

    Now, I suggest you wind your neck in, quit the irrelevant ad hom attacks and behave like a moderator.

    Brexit is not the most important thing, there are many problems that will not be solved while we have a tory govt, the most important thing is a change of govt at the next election. This will also solve the brexit problem, it’s just the intransigence of hard-remainers can’t see it. Labour is the only party that can replace the tories.

    I am mostly happy with Labour respecting Brexit since we live in a democracy, after all. I’m also ok with them talking about a second referendum, even though I think a second referendum is stupid. At 52/48 this is a compromise and a big problem is that hard-remainers can’t accept any compromise. They are as bad as hard-leavers, imo.

    Not true, a far preferable option is a progressive coalition.

    Genuinely interested- how will a Labour government after the next GE, solve the Brexit problem? And what is the Brexit problem?

    :D Hadn’t thought of it as a threat. Scotland is nice and I like the people. I don’t like tories running down public services and generally making a mess of everything.

    If there are a whole load of people in England stupid enough that a single issue causes them to enable another tory govt what would you suggest I do?

    What I said was, Labour is the only party that can replace the tories.

    What is a progressive coalition exactly and is it realistic in our current voting system that one can replace the tories?

    We think we know what goes on in the world, but I've often thought that some characters live in a parallel universe that we don't experience very often in our little middle class bubbles.
