  3. Gordon Brown

    Does anybody actually like this man? The latest quote from his bazaar memoirs accuses Salmond of being 'unhelpful' after the Glasgow airport terrorist attack. This from a man who was instrumental in the WMD war that, as we know, went a long way in ensuring peaceful co-habilitation. :rolleyes: It...

    Hopefully we will now see the last of the appalling casting couch culture. I suspect the HW allegations are only the tip of the iceberg. It is worth noting that this situation does not only apply to women. There have been suggestions in the past that James Dean may have 'succumbed' to forward his...

  13. Votes at 16

    Iíve gone on about this before. Dropping the voting age to 16 is policy for every party but the DUP and the Tories. Now thereís a vote and the old woman who is squatting in number 10 is blocking its progress. After they screw up Brexit the Conservativeís truly are toast for a generation.
