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.

    Don’t worry, I was just stringing you along

    Frankiesays Rats is life.

    May'be they were filming something innocuous, like a nature documentary? The great Brexit Boar?
  4. TheDecameron

    TheDecameron Unicorns fart glitter.

    They shoved a microphone in the face of a man who appeared to have a mild learning disability and grilled him about Boris Johnson’s position on Brexit. It seems to involve stopping people in a shopping mall and asking them to expound on current affairs. I suppose when they’re paying “The Talent” like a John Humphrys and Fiona Bruce millions, they have to stretch the budget more thinly elsewhere.

    The great Brexit Staffie, given the context.
  6. Mullardman

    Mullardman Moderately extreme...

    Seriously, they don't appear to be able to find an articulate 'vox pop' leaver who can put any argument whatever other than 'stannssterrreasondunnit', or indeed a remainer who can put together a single opposing argument.

    They interviewed a women who ‘will be ok with no deal as she only imports/exports’ outside the EU.

    The interviewer asked-by plane or port? The silence after she realised that port delays meant that her pottery will be at the back of the queue in a no deal Brexit was only broken by the sound of pennies dropping.

    And 'no deal' means that - until we negotiate a deal with each specific *non EU* country - we go to WTO rules with them, *not* the ones we had as part of the EU. So she may be in for a suprise there as well!

    I wonder how many people are as clueless as her about this minor issue..

    ...possibly including BBC reporters.

    I keep getting the feeling that loads of people think we still have an Empire that's more than a closed-down cinema.

    You can't really plan too much on a zero hour contract, can you?

    The BBC are doing very little to dispel the myth of Brexitiers being "uneducated"*
