Brexit: The fallout

7,269 posts in this topic

Stealing this from another thread;

 

These guys had the prime of their life in the 70s and saw how Britain changed so much during this time, so they really know how the UK was;

  • Energy crisis
  • Financial crash
  • Financial decline
  • Largest industrial action for 2 generations
  • Winter of discontent 
  • Miners strike
  • National state of emergency
  • 3 day week
  • 30% Inflation
  • IMF bailout
  • Run on the Pound
  • Power cuts
  • Northern Ireland troubles began (which also resulted in violence on the mainland)
  • Race riots
  • Football hooliganism
  • Explosion in domestic violence
  • Then But in 1979 all that changed, when Thatcher came to power!

But it wasn't all bad, the most dynamic advance in the UK in the 70s happened when the UK joined the EU!

My grandfather was born in the Kaiserreich, lived through ww1, than came the Weimarer Republik , then ww2 and after being bombed out of the home he had to move to the countryside and live in the house of another family. Then finally came the time of stability, democracy and Wirtschaftswunder. He died in the late 70ties. My grandmother was a lot younger. She didn't experience the Kaiserreich but the reunification instead. Anyhow enough for a lifetime.

You might try clearing your browsers internet cache.

How you do that may depend on the cell phone OS you are using as well as the browser type.

 

In Firefox type browsers the path is usually >Tools>Options>Advanced>Internet>Cache

...which may give you an idea of how to do it in Chrome, Safari or whatever you have.

It's from a 2002 film called Signs featuring the pictured Joaquin Phoenix as Mel Gibson's brother and Rory Culkin and Amanda Briskin(?) as his kids. Those tin-foil hats are vaguely relevant to parts of the 'plot' or storyline - which you can read about on that IMDB link.

 

In j²'s case, as a proud believer in every conspiracy theory he stumbles over, tin foil hats are his only known defence against the lizard aliens aka the British royal family and their hidden minions (i.e. anyone suspected of not worshipping Donny J Trump).:rolleyes::lol:

Game, set and match.

Can anyone imagine PM Thatcher’s reaction to these un-elected bureaucrats ? What more does it take for @10DowningStreet just to say “enough is enough”.

 

Hi @KateHoeyMP, thanks for the feedback. Actually, I was elected by my constituents with over 500k votes.

Imagine an elected MP campaigning on Europe, not knowing that MEPs are elected?
