Well they have become the mos successful protesters of modern times in my eye.

Macron has caved in and given , without being asked, thefollowing.

An end to the planned fuel tax rises

7% increase in minimum wage i.e. 100 euros a month more

Planned  tax  increase on low income pensioners dropped

Overtime no longer taxed

Employers to be encouraged to give atax free end of year bonus


Plus some other things like listening to the Provinces!

He is not going to tax the rich more though!

Think what would have been achieved if theyhad rioted, protested more. ;D
Germany will smack his bottie because he won't be able to balance the books now.

I think she is genuine. Deranged, but genuine.

We are the laughing stock of Europe.

Anyone ever worked for a manager unable to implement necessary change?

I wonder what the EU are going to discuss on Thursday?  Halving the UK contributions when we rejoin plus a gift of 100 to every uk man, woman and child.10% discount on German cars and white goods. Maybe not maybe they will fast track the future trade agreement offer to negate even having the backstop clause?
100 you say? Will we get it before Christmas?
They can pay it along with my Winter Fuel Allowance. ;D
I've had my WFA, and me 10 Christmas bonus.  ;D

I had to let Mr Angry out to play this morning.  It was a necessary evil to focus some minds to stop wanking about with irrevelant sideshows and dealing with the real issues in hand.

But they are all from Ipswich, so I expect their focus to be shortlived.


Good for you.


So where are you putting the christmas tree?  :)
I know where the tractor boys would like to shove put the Christmas tree.  :o

I've gone from engaged to enraged and now to apathetic. In or out is going to end up looking pretty much the same.

Discovered that the wheel couldn't be repaired. Bugger.

Discovered a new one is 650. Bugger.

Discovered, even with discounts, a new one is still 540. Bugger.


Permission to say bugger?
Wow! That's nearly a weeks worth of fuel.

She has found a way to stop asking the electorate until they get it right. Keep asking parliament until they get it right.  ;D

Laura Kuenssberg is reporting that the vote has been pulled. Nothing official yet.

If true it shows the government has no confidence in it....
No confidence? TM was on a hiding to nothing and she certainly knew that. This is either part of a grand plan or a monumental f*uck up. Answers on a postcard, please.

And, I guess, you've all heard that the ECJ has ruled that we can cancel article 50 and all go back to being nice Europeans, and the other members can do sweet FA to stop us.

Would that be male or female gropers? :-X

Ron.
Doesn't really matter, they feel the same when you're trapped under the switchboard.  ;D

A bit like telecomms. I used to drive around in my little van taking people's telephones to bits to fix them. Then someone had the bright idea of plugging them into a socket and sending a new one out in the post.
Can't beat restrapping a 746 to get it to work as a Plan 107 extension. Or, in the middle of Martins Newsagents, crawling around the floor looking for all the springs and contacts that had shot everywhere after I popped the top of an HES4
Martins Newsagents? I'm talking about going missing for two days in United Biscuits, or Plesseys, try to figure out which way some twonk had routed the wiring for an extension on the PABX. I've been known to go 'deep cover' for almost a week.  ;D
Switchboard operators liked nothing better than groping the young lad's bollix while he was crawling around their feet. Made me go quite red sometimes.  :-[
