  1. Margaret Thatcher

    In my lifetime, never has a Prime Minister been equally loved and loathed. Love her or hate her, right or wrong, the Iron lady stuck to her convictions. So, your thoughts, and perhaps time for a new poll. :hitler:
  2. Mrs Whealie the prime minister

    OK so we misread the envelope. IMG_0002 by whealie, on Flickr Actually it was letter from Big Dave thanking her for volunteering in the paralympics opening ceremony.
  3. Idiot Tories at it again.

    Apparently it is Morally wrong to pay tradesmen in cash according to Treasury Minister David Gauke. Seems to me that it is way easier to hit the hard working* man in the street than to go after all their tax dodging mates in the mega corporations. Same old Tories! * Work - something...
  4. If Cameron goes

    would that mean wallpaper-heir Osborne would be in charge of the Tory party? would that mean that Cleggy would be Prime Minister? would that mean that Ed Miliband would become far more important than he deserves? God knows, I never thought I would want Cameron to remain in his position...
  5. The Longest Day 2012 - 'The Saltire Challenge'

    The Longest Day
    Dear XRV TLD Riders We need to start putting a ride together soon as we already have about 20 riders who have registered an interest whatever it is, and as this is Ride 5, want it to be the best yet. After a weekend of discussions in the TLD Board Room, this what we are proposing. We hope you...
  6. Calm down, dear!

    Is the Prime Minister a complete and utter cock? (and why did the speaker not object to being called 'dear'? Remarks in the chamber are all supposed to be made to the speaker.)
  7. Minsters to scrap hated L-test for bikers

    Road safety minister Mike Penning has sounded the death knell for the unpopular and widely criticised swerve test for learner bikers wanting to get a full licence. Announcing the results of the review of the test launched earlier this year he said a the altered driving exam would include "a new...
  8. Radio 4 Jeremy Hunt (Moderately NWS)

    Did anyone hear Jim Naughtie on Radio 4's Today programme this morning? He made a classic Spoonerism and mispronounced government minister Jeremy Hunt's surname. You can listen to the few words on Guido Fawkes' website But Naughtie had to try to carry on despite realising that he had called a...
  9. Do I wish...

    Do I wish the Prime Minister would stop asking rhetorical questions? Yes I do. Has he listened to Barack Obama's speech patterns and decided he'd like a bit of his popularity? Yes he has. Would he kindly disappear up into his worthless, value-free, elitist, regressive arse? No, I'm afraid he...
  10. Promise: no more speed cameras

    Nich Brown, general secretary of the Motorcycle Action Group (MAG), says he does not believe transport minister Philip Hammond’s claim he will not fund any more speed cameras and will tackle a 14-year ‘war’ on motorists. But the BMF said it was “good news indeed”. MAG’s Brown said...
  11. couple of petitions worth signing up to

    Motorcyclists at the head of a group of riders will face stiffer penalties for speeding under a crown court ruling. Being the lead rider in a group is an aggravating factor making you partly responsible for speeding offences of those behind you according to the decision. The ruling can be...
  12. Harriet Harman - A criminal according to The Times

    According to this article... Harriet Harman pleads guilty to careless driving - Times Online The Times says: "Labour’s deputy leader Harriet Harman today became the first serving Cabinet minister in memory to plead guilty to a criminal charge after admitting driving without due care and...
  13. Biscuits

    Given the recent scandal wherein the Prime Minister would not nominate his favourite biscuit for a national newspaper (though what WAS Nick Clegg thinking of by plumping for a Rich Tea?!?!?) it is plain that biscuits are a matter of great strategic importance. Therefore I feel I should bring...
  14. National 50MPH speed limit

    We received a petition asking: “We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to not reduce the national speed limit to 50mph.” Details of Petition: “Following the announcement that the government is planning to reduce the national speed limit to 50 miles per hour, we the undersigned oppose...
  15. Did you know of plans for compulsory community service ????

    I dont normally get involved in political shenanigans, but this has got me a bit rattled ('compulsory' - another erosion of our/our childrens freedom), and was released low key in News of the world (but i found it on the internet) : By Ian Kirby, 12/04/2009 PM Gordon Brown intends to...
  16. Nigerian Email scam? or American?

    Dear Friend: I need to ask you to support an urgent secret business relationship with a transfer of funds of great magnitude. I am Ministry of the Treasury of the Republic of America. My country has had crisis that has caused the need for large transfer of funds of 700 billion dollars US. If...
  17. another petition

    my pops sent this through to me dont know how much affect its going to have but what the heck sign it anyway:D Hi All, I don't know about you, but I am fed up with our Prime Minister imposing massive stealth taxes retrospectively on the public. I am especially concerned with the VED (Road...
  18. Why you can NEVER EVER trust Government

    I have noticed recently that there is a lot of talk recently on the internet concerning tracking devices fitted to road vehicles, and that a petition has been set up. I voted on that petition and i will tell you why. I lived in the Ukraine and Russia for nearly 3 years i used to work for the...
  19. Manx news

    Hmm, maybe I should start a continuing thread on the goings-on over here :D After the elections on the 21st November, the island needs a new Chief Minister. The CM comes from within the ranks of Tynwald (the parliament), so would be an MHK (MP) elected this time around. First role to be...
  20. Petition: untested speed equipment being used on bikes

    Chatter The wording of this petition isn't inspiring, but the sentiment is good. Various people have deomonstrated that laser equipment gives false speed readings on motorcycles, and MCN (brace yourself for a shock...) did some worthwhile investigation that...
