I suspect a large number of people in Northern Ireland don't agree with you.....

This sort of thing is why the Brexiteers want a return to the 1950's a golden age when Britain ruled the skies. Could invent and develop the jet engine and allow the US to clean up  due to free market skintness.

What names... AVRO, De Haviland, Hawker Siddeley, Gloster Aircraft Company, Boulton and Paul, Handley Page and our very own Vickers Armstrong and Supermarine.

Some of the visionaries in these companies could see how the world was heading and so joined with other Europeans to build the Airbus, in the 60's.

Whether the 10,000+ Airbus jobs in Bristol can survive Brexit is moot.

That's a rhetorical question, no?

I suspect that Theresa’s big speech extolling the merits of free market economics might have carried a little more weight if she were not trying to pull us out of the biggest free-trading bloc on the planet.

Whilst also threatening a trade war with another of our major trading partners, getting ever more convinced that the Tories will not be happy until rationing is reintroduced.

Labour apparently bankrupted us but despite being in power during 2008 the UK credit rating remained as AAA throughout their watch, Tories been in power for nearly 10 years in period of recovery, expansion and fairly stable economic times for UK and the credit rating has been dropped twice so far....

Remind me who we are supposed to think is better at economic management?

Obviously the Spanish are dirtier than us Brits. They used to collect in Brum, but it's still not a thing on the sub Continent..better to chuck it out onto the street medieval style, and let urchins sift through it.

Her Conference speech hasn't gone down too well....even something as inanimate as the set delivered an f off  Smiley

And Lee Nelson handed her a P45.

How come he can get into all these different high profile places and continue to get away with it? Especially in this security conscious time.

To be fair her speech today has entirely unified the nation....

Best thing Lee Nelson has ever done.

Thought it was the best episode of The Thick of it ever. I expected her to be picked up in a clown car.

Would have been better if he'd done it as Lord Buckethead, but more difficult to get through security.

Theresa May, on the other hand, is fucking hilarious. And, despite what she and her aides may have intended, in no way self-promoting. So it probably balances out, all told
