    Very well said, Andrew. Sadly, I fear that the pigs aren't even on standby - let alone ready to fly. :(

    He has to be trolling. No one with a shred of decency in them could possibly make that statement. The mere fact of their existence is a blight on the nation.*

    * I mean the food banks. I think.

    Food banks are there for a purpose, to feed the people on low incomes and those with no income at all, we know income support and credit union or what ever you want to call it does not work at the mo but it will change, so food banks are really important to these people, so the food banks are doing a wonderful job.Yes I agree with everybody they are a blight on our society but the fact is we need them, whoever is in government should be ashamed of this because it's been going on for years, I donated to charities when I was working I donated to charities, I was involved in events and all donations went to a charity, this country gives away billions of pounds to foreign aid and often it is said it never gets to the people who it was intended for, again no matter who is running our country this has gone on. Our country I am talking Great Britain, (Scotland, Wales, England, Ireland,) needs to change now....surely people must realise this.....we cannot go on as we are we want changes now.....

    Foreign Aid budget 2016 = 13.4bn

    Cost of Brexit (source: Bank of England) = £40bn so far... as at May 2018

    Projected cost of Brexit = eye-watering

    Great Britain consists of England, Scotland, and Wales plus some islands. It does not include any part of Ireland.
    The United Kingdom consists of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

    Alternatively, you could have said something worth saying instead of that tawdry extremist nonsense, but that would have shocked us all rather more.

    Being pedantic, 'Great Britain' is simply the name of the largest island in the British Isles and doesn't include any other 'islands' (or indeed indicate any 'moral' superiority as a good proportion of its inhabitants seem to imagine).

    The 'United Kingdom' does include N.Ireland plus quite a few islands.

    Dear Nick,

    It would indeed, as by now we all know that he is a nasty little troll.

    Cheers,

    Those will become more familiar when Brexit returns us to the stone age.:)

    Good roughage.
    It appears we are not eating enough of it. Ha! Guess what? Low carb not good any more.

    I'm so glad I ignore the lot of the so-called recommendations and warnings.

    So that's 5000 jobs at JLR, 1000 at Ford Bridgend, Honda to stop production for six days and all blame Brexit.

    All, I think, in leaver areas.

    JLR has a specific problem with the Chinese market turning off. The main issue for the whole industry in Europe is the demonisation of diesel which has stopped people buying cars because they don't know what the rules on diesel car use will be, nor whether gasoline cars will also be affected, nor whether hybrids will be also restricted. Brexit is a headache not the main problem.

    That's bloody dreadful, Steve. If they're in Leave areas, it's tempting to say "tough", but of course, even in those areas, there'll be a percentage of poor sods who voted Remain, who are now getting all the cr@p resulting from the idiocy of the other part of the electorate.

    Having reached this point - with industries starting to go 'flaky' all around - anyone who still thinks Brexit is a good idea, must be a bloody moron.

    This government are more likely to replace foodbanks with dignitas clinics than show any sign of addressing the problem.

    They solve that by tweaking NHS guidlines. We are dispensable (or perhaps that should be disposable?)
