Besides, after the inevitable plunge of the pound, that debt will be worthless anyway. Hopefully the UK Treasury is heavily invested in euros and dollars.

 

News flash - the pound is 7-8% off the bottom.   @murphaph was throwing out conspiracies theories about the Pound crashing a while back but if he bet on his predictions, he is broke by now.

The Brexit saga is not over yet or hadn't you noticed?

 

Despite your protests otherwise, Brexit will not be the end of the world.    

 

You should just admit that your disaster capitalism conspiracy theory from mid September was way off.

According to your profiles, you are Californian and murphaph is Irish, so unless that info is incorrect, i am not lecturing any Brits.  

 

The Pound is off its lows by around 8%.   Here is a chart for you.   Hope that helps.

Labour questions Dominic Cummings's links to Russia

 

Quote

The shadow foreign secretary, Emily Thornberry, has written to the government with questions about Dominic Cummings’s connections to Russia and the levels of security vetting to which he has been subjected in Downing Street after an official-level whistleblower raised serious concerns.

 

Cummings, the divisive senior adviser to the prime minister, Boris Johnson, spent three years in Russia from 1994 to 1997 after he graduated from Oxford University with a first in ancient and modern history.

 

In her letter addressed to the foreign secretary, Dominic Raab, which was first reported on in the Sunday Times and has been seen by the Guardian, Thornberry says shadow ministers have been approached with “serious concerns by an official-level whistleblower” but adds: “We make no claim to know the veracity of their claims.”

This wasn't a staged photo opportunity trying to connect with the electorate.

TV precariouly perched on a coffee table. (in front of a book shelf)

Everybody watches TV sat on the floor with their shoes on.

By the time you thought up this stunt, the match was nearly over.

All true rugby fans put a rugby shirt on top of their work shirt.

Everyone leaves the instruction label on the Sky Box.

I guess Boris supports West Ham Wanderers.

TWAT.

PM accused of cover-up over report on Russian meddling in UK politics

 

Quote

Boris Johnson was on Monday night accused of presiding over a cover-up after it emerged that No 10 refused to clear the publication of a potentially incendiary report examining Russian infiltration in British politics, including the Conservative party.

 

Downing Street indicated on Monday that it would not allow a 50-page dossier from the intelligence and security committee to be published before the election, prompting a string of complaints over its suppression.

 

The committee’s chairman, Dominic Grieve, called the decision “jaw dropping”, saying no reason for the refusal had been given, while Labour and Scottish National party politicians accused No 10 of refusing to recognise the scale of Russian meddling.

Boris Johnson's Conservative party have received a surge in cash from Russian donors

 

Quote

A new investigation reveals that Boris Johnson's Conservative party has received a surge in cash from Russian donors over the past year, as his government blocks publication of a report into Russian influence over recent elections.

 

An OpenDemocracy investigation found that the UK Conservative party received at least £498,850 from Russian business people and their associates between November 2018 and October 2019.

 

This was a significant increase on the previous year when they received donations amounting to less than £350,000. 

It comes despite increased pressure on the party to cut its ties to Russian oligarchs since the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury last year.

 

It also comes as Johnson's chief strategist Dominic Cummings came under the spotlight for alleged Russian ties, after the Sunday Times reported claims from a whistleblower about "serious concerns" about the time he spent in Russia in the 1990s.

But if they exist then they should be made public.
