    Meanwhile Google is preparing to take action against you guessed it, RT and Sputnik, even though both news sites have not broken any of Googles rules.

    The Graun, also adds it tuppence by claiming multiple Russian trolls have affected news websites such as Buzzfeed the Metro and the Telegraph.

    I think people are fed up just listening to onesided propaganda, and have decided to listen to the other sides propaganda as well.

    Labour’s Ian Murray tabled an amendment to the Brexit Bill that would have kept the UK in the EU customs union. Not only did the Labour front bench – including Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell – vote it down, but some Labour MPs, who would have backed Murray’s amendment, were told by Labour whips that there were to be no more important votes and they could go home. Wes Streeting is saying he was told he could go home and is very annoyed.

    The SNP and Plaid voted for Murray’s amendment.

    Corbyn and McDonnell are pursuing hard brexit for some misguided idea that they’re dealing a blow to the mighty corporations. All they’ll succeed in doing is making things harder for the people on the breadline they’re supposed to be looking out for.

    Not to mention Corbyn completely ignoring the democratic wishes of the people of Scotland and Northern Ireland.

        “Those heartless cruel westmonsters don’t love wee kittens” said the nationalist, exhaling the waft of a dead pig that had spent it’s entire life cramped in a cage.

            The bullingdon club? WTF does some toffs club have to do with animal welfare?

            You assume any critic of Scottish nationalism is another type of nationalist. Hell, you even seem to assume a critic of animal cruelty is another type of nationalist. Laughable.

            All states support industrial scale animal abuse and murder. All meat eaters do. For a meat eater from Scotland to complain about some law in Westminster seems a tad, oh I don’t know, opportunist and hypocritical.

            OK, I get it now. Is that a reference to cameron? I didn’t make the connection. Sorry to have misread.

            “Those cold hearted westmonsters don’t love wee foxes” said the nationalist, his words full of a deformed chicken which had died of a heart attack after forty days life in a cage unable to even turn.

          • Phil the ex-frog

            “Those nasty evil westmonsters don’t love wee puppies” said the nationalist, his lips retaining the milk from a cow who mourns every calf snatched from her at birth.

      Ian Murray can’t propose an amendment that keeps us in the customs union. The government and the EU negotiating team would need to agree this.

      Ian Murray proposed an amendment which would mean the UK government couldn’t put tariffs on goods from the EU. It would have no effect on UK exports. It was a stupid amendment.

      “Corbyn and McDonnell are pursuing hard brexit for some misguided idea that they’re dealing a blow to the mighty corporations. All they’ll succeed in doing is making things harder for the people on the breadline they’re supposed to be looking out for.”

      Corbyn is just following his mentors policy Tony Benn towards the EU which he knew was run by a corrupt organisation and that the British people were manipulated to vote to remain in the EU by
      IRD headed by Norman Reddaway. “What goes around comes around”

    Suspected ISIS members from Syria detained in Germany, reportedly plotted Christmas market attack
    https://www.rt.com/news/410527-germany-isis-suspects-arrested/
    Six Syrian asylum seekers suspected of being ISIS members and plotting an attack against a “public target” have been detained in a large-scale operation by police in Germany. Local media report that the suspects had targeted a Christmas market.

    If there is to be another general election in Germany before the new year,
    that Merkel will be punished
    for her treachery.

      • freddy

        The Christmas Market attack was utterly bizare, in all aspects.
        Just one example, the apparent Lone Wolf was reported to have been in Chambery Railway Station, on exactly the same day
        as the President of France was in Chambery, Savoie.
        France had been on ALERT for twelve months, with hundreds of thousands of troops on the streets, yet nobody saw the Most Wanted Lone Wolf.
        He was later reported as having been shot dead by a couple of ordinary policemen, in Italy.

          French president and terrorist at same train station on same day

          France has been especially embarrassed by the search for the Berlin jihadist.
          http://freewestmedia.com/2016/12/26/french-president-and-terrorist-crossed-train-station-on-the-same-day/

          Before Anis Amri was killed in Milan, the terror suspect had travelled unhindered through France, using a similar route to the French president at one stage.

          France’s Front National and the conservative opposition assailed the Socialist government as lax after it became known that the president and the terrorist might have actually crossed each other while travelling in the south of the country.

          “It’s a veritable kitchen strainer,” said Eric Ciotti, lawmaker for the Republicans. “How could this person enter in Europe without being monitored? How could we let him settle in Europe?”

            Note to Merkel : Francois Hollande was so despized, he was the first president of the republic of France, since the war, not to stand for re-election,
            because he had shat on his own electorate.

    Jeez, if I read or see anymore pics of the two old codgers, (70 years married) who’ve lived a pampered and cosseted life, at the taxpayers expense, I think I’ll throw up.

    Talk about propaganda to turn ones head.

    This is beyond bizarre…

    “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Socialist….

    Then they came for the Jwees, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jwee.”

    Then they came for The Muslims, and I did speak out (even though I am not a Muslim) (the evidence proves they didn’t do it)

    Then they came for The Christians – and then I came to the conclusion “They” are absolutely f’cking mad.

    Who are “They” ? I don’t believe in Satan, but it seems “They” do. I think most of them are American (ex European – we put them on the boats and told them to F’ck Off). The criminals were much nicer – we merely sent them to Australia – but we couldn’t stand the religious lunatics’ nagging.

    Apologies to The American Indians, and the Aboriginies. We seriously fcked up. It’s entirely the fault of us English.

        Yeh, but she has got “5,000 friends and an additional 5,000+ followers”, but I am not “That” impressed with only 50,667 shares, and as The American media increasingly makes itself look ridiculous, it opens up new opportunities, for younger and far more dynamic British competition…

        Like I said – “I can do that – gissa job” (well my lad actually)

        Meanwhile…

        It is only chilling if you are one of those (not that I believe you are among them) who endearingly believe the twaddle about the “democratising power of the web”, that the Internet is some sort of neutral tabula blanco, like a pencil and sheet of paper, upon which any free agent may scrawl a word of subversion. It was invented by DARPANET for heaven’s sake, specifically as a means of retaining central USA control at times of unwanted decentralisation (specifically on “the day after”). And they have had almost 70 years to perfect it.

        The essence of the Internet is not farcebook or gargle. It is the hardware. Any stray soul with a sense of mission can pick up a ploughshare and forge it back into a blade in a time of tyranny. But who among us has satellite launching facilities? Undersea cable-laying ships? Ever known an ordinary bloke to get away with erecting a cellular mast?

        The only hope is that Russia and China can hurry up and complete their utterly independent Internets. (And for obvious reasons, this is a far from ideal solution.)

          No.

          Packet switching was developed for the military in the 1960s as a way of communicating in times of war. That is only a very small part of the internet, the rest evolved, a lot of people in different fields worked on it, not least amateur radio enthusiasts. The web didn’t arrive till much later, early 1990s, invented by a professor at Oxford University.

    “On the subject of an ageist society, off subject but it might lighten the mood

    Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting.

    Well, for example, the other day, my wife and I went into town and visited a shop.

    When we came out, there was a traffic warden writing out a parking ticket.

    We went up to him and I said, ‘come on, how about giving a senior citizen a break?’

    He ignored us and continued writing the ticket.

    I called him an arsehole . He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn-out tires.

    So my wife called him a shit head. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windscreen with the first.

    Then he started writing more tickets. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more we abused him, the more tickets he wrote.

    Just then our bus arrived, and we got on it and went home.

    We weren’t too concerned about the vehicle’s owner because of the sticker on the back window which read “I support Jeremy Corbin ”

    We try to have a little fun each day now that we’re retired. It’s important at our age”

    I voted Labour so it wasn’t me

    The Irish Border issue seems unsolvable.

    Much has been said about a hard border violating the Good Friday Agreement but the fact that Vardaker’s solution of Northern Ireland remaining in the Single Market and Customs Union apart from GB also clearly violates the GFA has not been remarked upon.

    It is going to be very difficult to impose any solution on Northern Ireland and any major change to the GFA surely requires another referendum. If the EU is serious about no progress on a trade deal until this is resolved it may well bring down the government early next year.
