Brilliant place, as good as Screwfix. Good products, good prices, in stock and open on Sundays. No I don't work there but they have several times saved me hassle, delivery charges and time. Today especially. Thank you Argos Lewes, great service.

Its even as good as Richards the butchers, hold me back. Before i forget, it's as good as the Eggman behind Waitrose on a Sunday, phew! They saved me from slowly dying of starvation.

Blockage

I tried to answer your misleading post about TTIP Nevillman but it was blocked.

Your post is timed-12.01am. that's a minute past curfew which means you're lucky it ever appeared. Posting around midnight is often a waste of time. I suppose that the forum is liable for any "hate speech" that it shows. You can slander anyone you like by insinuation but not directly. Just don't mention the group name of an offically protected minority.

Perhaps its wise to have the curfew to avoid indignant tom pains drunken 3am ramblings. Just too many truth bombs he has to drop, and so little opportunity on this oppressive forum.

No time for that greeny, too much to do. Get on the good foot man, you're too close for comfort.

On the topic of blockages, it seems to me that the main function of the media is blocking any news apart from the particular aspect that they are pushing. I've just seen a very good example in the toppling of a statue of Haile Selassie in Wimbldon. Whilst the media were race baiting with the black lives matter phenomenon, they neglected to mention this non black/white divisive matter. I'd never heard about it when statue bashing was the sport of the day. It didn't inflame an insoluble historic grievance apart from one among the Ethiopian community of course. Conflict sells news and that's the media's only business.

I wonder...

While you're on basil, why not tell us how happy you are with brexit and how the neo liberals are on the run.

Those neo-libs as the New Riders of the Covid Surge are having a very good run.(or should that have been Raiders) All the billionaires are increasing their wealth like never before. Its very peculiar how the top 1% manage to do so well when the general economy takes a dive. Don't speculate why that should be, its not polite and you know what you would be called and it wont be polite!

Nevillman - Very happy that we've left the protectionist EU superstate project. I went to the dentist yesterday and had a painful tooth extracted. Yes, I'm one tooth down but I'm pleased to be rid of the source of the pain.

You are right Tom. The neo liberals have free rein without the added protection of the EU competition policy. Don't forget basil it was the EU that saw off ttip. You will see what true neo liberalism looks like when we have us trade agreements. Looking at the world with some knowledge of economics, politics, history and geography then I truly think of decision to leave the EU looks more foolish by the day but I have no wish to go through the old arguments again and accept that enough of my compatriots were fooled that the leavers won. I shall however remain a remainder, remowner and rejoiner until i see some evidence beyond an irrational fear of an EU superstate project to convince me.
The reality is that basil, Tom and nevillman will be long gone before this plays out so I have nothing further to add on the matter unless specifically goaded. I was only seeing if you had any remorse yet basil but I am not surprised. I think parent sums that up well.

I don't think it's a matter of being fooled, as with all political choices, one picks the least worse. Its all just a tax farming operation. The party system ensures that all candidates are "safe hands" and voting- a charade.Let's face it, the government is just stakeholder in the global public- private partnership network.

You might have a point about general elections Tom but that is a different topic and in 2016 there was a straight choice between in or out of the EU. In my opinion many of the electorate were fooled by all manner of methods. It is my belief that as time passes .more people will realise they have been fooled. I don't expect you or basil will ever come to that realisation for obvious reasons.

We're in a world system. The UK and the EU, even Russia and China. The globalised financial system is doing away with national borders bit by bit. They've stated it many times.

Another interesting topic Tom that I would be happy to respond to in its own thread. I'm interested to know your view on the topic of this thread.. Were many people fooled into voting leave in the referendum?
