@Coop_Travel"We've called your mobile several times today." That's my wife's mobile. #sigh

Still waiting for @coop_travel to respond to my complaint. Can't believe the branch doesn't have a complaints procedure! #money4nothing

How many party leaders around the world do you know that would allow themselves to be pulled like a puppy by their coat tails?

I'm actually starting to feel sorry for Jeremy Corbyn, he looks lost and dejected on most, if not all, the latest news reports. If this was a boxing match the referee would feel duty bound to give him a standing count.

I think he missed the memo about being a leader involving at least the faintest iota of leadership instead of just thinking quietly about his high principles on his own.

Farage, you're a disgrace to our country! What a disgusting way to treat people we still need as friends.
NIGEL FARAGE was today booed in the European Parliament as he told members they’d never ‘had proper jobs’ and predicted Britain would not be the last member state to quit the EU.

Given Jeremy Corbyn was probably just as surprised as everyone else that he was elected leader of the Labour party and that he also knows he'll never get to sit in the driving seat again why on earth would he step down?

Well Andy Wootton, seems I got it wrong? Boris says he won't run for PM. :-(

Someone gag Farage and Boris! France is holding out an olive branch to Britain. #Brexit  
In a major boost for hopes of a smooth exit for the UK, France's finance minister Michel Sapin, pictured, said there would be no ‘red lines’ in talks over the single market.

+Nic Davies I doubt very much that it will change for us or other EU members. True Scotland, London and Ireland will see less money once the EU funds are cut off but I doubt we'll suddenly see loads of people being forced back to their country of origin or the price of snails going through the roof.

Lets wait and see what the situation is in 2018/19 before we all start getting our knickers in a twist.

I'm deadly serious when I say I want to see Boris Johnson as PM, Donald Trump as President and the icing on the cake for me would be Silvio Berlusconi back as Italian PM.

Nobody around the world would be miserable anymore we'd all be too busy falling about with laughter on a daily basis. :-D

Sadly the majority of UK residents are under the misapprehension that MP's run the country, it's simply not true. The Civil Service runs the country based on decisions made by MP's. So with that in mind we can probably manage without a Prime Minister for a bit. :-D

"I know that. I did watch, Yes, Minister!"

A couple of days ago, I actually recommended that one to a younger lad at work who voted out because of the 'Faceless Eurocrats'. (He was adamant that immigration played no part in his decision.)

Young working class men in working class jobs, like myself are ignorant of these facts and in a lot of cases, wilfully ignorant.
This guy actually did a little victory dance when the referendum result became indisputably clear, the previous morning.
I know I shouldn't have, but I shot him down by suggesting whom else would be celebrating like that and referencing Joe Cox.
He immediately came over with a look of mock contrition and muttered "Perhaps I voted wrong, then".
He then proceeded to pretend (unconvincingly) that he didn't know anything about the murder.
He was back to celebrating in no time, but more quietly from that point on.
Nauseating.

When I later suggested to the same guy that the reason for the result and the high turnout was that people who had never voted before, came out in their droves; he put his hand up and said "Yeah, that was me. I replied "Figured as much", shook my head and walked away.

Anyway, I hope he watches those shows and finally gets some of the perspective he has obviously not allowed himself before.

I can hope, can't I?

Just received my order of shaving soaps, nice touch adding the various samples in the box with my items. Will definitely order from them again now.

Really nice and clean as you would expect from a new hotel. Very friendly staff. Lifts can take a bit to arrive sometimes as the hotel does get busy. It was a bit far from the events I attended but I would stay there again.
