Wiki on modern usage of "twat,"

Modern usage
Although sometimes used as a reference to the female genitalia (a usage that predominates for the word in North American English), the word twat is more often used in various other ways:
As a derogatory insult, a pejorative meaning a fool, a stronger alternative to the word twit – 'He can be a complete twat'[9] (frequent in British and Commonwealth English, and not unheard of in North America)
Informally as a verb meaning to hit someone[2] (a British usage)

The western australian hansard quotes fairies at the bottom of the garden. Do you believe that as well? as it was stated in hansard?

I came across a quote this morning, from Mark Twain in 1906. It strikes me as being especially applicable to the Leave voters as the entire Brexit debacle, built as it is on a tissue of lies, unravels before our eyes, yet they steadfastly refuse to understand the extent to which they have been duped, and they continue to defend the indefensible...

"The glory which is built upon a lie soon becomes a most unpleasant incumbrance. … How easy it is to make people believe a lie, and how hard it is to undo that work again!” – Autobiographical dictation, 2 December 1906. Published in Autobiography of Mark Twain, Volume 2 (University of California Press, 2013)

Quote of the Day, AFAIC.

On Monday, in the House of Commons and reported in Hansard Anna Soubry said:

If we do not deliver frictionless trade, either through a customs union or some magical third way that the Prime Minister thinks she can deliver—good luck to her on that—thousands of jobs will go, and hon. Members sitting on the Government Benches, in private conversations, know that to be the case. What they have said in those private conversations is that the loss of hundreds of thousands of jobs will be worth it to regain our country’s sovereignty—tell that to the people who voted leave in my constituency. Nobody voted to be poorer, and nobody voted leave on the basis that somebody with a gold-plated pension and inherited wealth would take their jobs away from them

No one denied that that was "being said in private conversations" during the Debate.

I wonder if people here think losing the loss of hundreds of thousands of jobs will be worth it to regain our country’s sovereignty? And if they think that is scaremongering, what would be acceptable? 50,000? 10,000?

The snippet of news I heard was from the BBC, normally a fairly reliable source, suggested that because of the trade deal between the EU and Japan etc various goods would no longer be subject to various tariffs. The reporter went on to suggest that vehicles, in particular, would become far cheaper when exported from Japan, Korea etc.

If this where to be the case then it may make better economics for Nissan, Kia et al to export from their bases in that part of Asia than to manufacture in the UK which will in all probability no longer be a a part of the EU in a short time.

If this does prove to be the case, the future of these companies within the UK the finance, the jobs will be lost.

Still very early in the day, but Raab was saying he hoped to be getting progress on the White Paper, while the EU is saying - as it has done for the last two years or so - it needs the Withdrawal Agreement sorted first. David Davis went in wanting to talk trade before agreeing things like the Irish Border mechanisms, you remember.

So no progress at all by the sound of it.

Well here's a bit of good news - the EU College of Commisioners is putting in motion the procedure which will hopefully allow UK citizens to claim permanent citizenship of the EU, should they wish, after we've finally been committed to the BrexShit Asylum.

Nothing written on tablets of stone, but they are at least inviting citizens of the other 27 Member States to indicate their support, or otherwise, for such a law to be enacted. Not quite the image of 'unelected bureaucrats forcing laws on Member States' that the BrexShitters would like everyone to believe is the standard Modus Operandi of the EU?

Toyota has said it will build the next generation of its Auris hatchback at its Burnaston plant in Derbyshire.

The Japanese carmaker also said its Deeside factory in North Wales would build most of its engines

It goes on to say

In other words, it is firmly committed to the UK for now. But that commitment is not open-ended or unconditional. and

"With around 85% of our UK vehicle production exported to European markets, continued free and frictionless trade between the UK and Europe will be vital for future success." (Dr Johan van Zyl, president of Toyota Europe)


For now, Toyota is increasing its investment, and will build its new model in UK. Due to uncertainties it cannot make promises beyond these promises already made.

That's no excuse, anyone can type 'Euro', so Raggy could have clarified whether the figure quoted was 5000 Euro, 5000 pounds, or 5000 Yen. Obviously the figure for pounds/Euro are not so different, but 5000 Yen is about 34 pounds, so accuracy helps.

Interesting comment from Teresa May to the Select Committee today:


The question session with the prime minister starts with Labour's Hilary Benn asking if it would not strengthen Mrs May's hand to put the Brexit White Paper to a Commons vote.

She responds that many pieces of legislation have been put through Parliament, and the EU knows what her government's position is.

He asks if she can confirm that a no-deal Brexit would lead to a hard border in Ireland.

She says that there is no simple answer, and in the event of no-deal the situation at the border would depend on decisions made by the government.


No simple answer to whether a "no-deal" Brexit would lead to a hard border in Ireland, eh? And dependant on decisions by this government, not the EU? Hardly the strong commitment by the government to no hard border mentioned many times on this thread, is it?

Well let the buggers flounder. The last thing we need is another GE, and the last thing Labour need is to find themselves in office with this steaming heap of ordure dumped in their laps.

On the other hand, the Rothermeres, Murdochs, et al, along with their rich buddies in parliament, would be positively incandescent with delight that their dirty offshoring activities and sundry other tax avoidance schemes will be able to continue without hindrance.

What a fuck-up.

I trust some of you have read May's reply to Johnson's resignation letter. In it she clearly states that an extra #394 million will be available to the NHS.

What she doesn't say fo course is that, according to a BBC news report, that that will be based on either huge cuts to other services and/or significant tax rises.

Brexit, don't you just love it.

Any good news anyone?

Here you go, Raggy

European Union signs its biggest ever trade deal after striking agreement with Japan

I cannot find the bit about it being detrimental but it does say

At the moment, EU companies pay €1bn (£890m) of duty on products they export to Japan. Almost all of these tariffs will now be removed and 95% of tariffs the other way will also be wiped out.

These companies - including UK firms until Brexit - export nearly €60bn (£53bn) of goods and €28bn (£25m) of services to Japan.

According to the European Commission, the new deal has the potential to increase these exports by a quarter.


So, no free trade with the US. No free trade with Japan. It gets better and better doesn't it. Brexit, the gift that keeps shitting on you!

Caught a fractionn of news last night relating to the agreement between the EU and Japan (other Asian countries) about removing tariffs from goods including vehicles. A spokesman seemed to suggest that this would be detrimental to the UK car industry in we were no longer part of the EU.

As I said I only caught a snippet does any know more.

But never mind Brexit is good eh!?

"Try not to talk to people and remember you are a mental midget Iaians"
That followed a long series of somewhat pathetic attempts to talk down those who had had the temerity to argoe with - you'd hardly been contributing to this thread for a month or so and already you has set out to belittle and insult your fellow posters and you have not refrained from doing so since
Perhaps you would care to link to the circumstances in which I made that remark - or maybe you would like me to
Always happy to oblige
You have become noted for your serial abusive behaviour - others indulge in such behaviour occasionally, including me - with you it is an addiction
Happy to link to the huge list of examples of your abuse if you wish

Before we close this thread between us, I suggest we retuurn to the subject
You have my arguments - let's have yours

"AnY moron can offer insult rather than argument - they usually do"
As exemplified by your goodself!

Remember this little gem? 27 Feb 17 - 06:32 AM
"Try not to talk to people and remember you are a mental midget Iaians
People with far more knowledge and experience have had their fingers burned on this forum by forgetting their place.
You really are an obnoxiously smug bastard, aren't you"

Make up your fucking mind you mad fascist"

Plenty more tucked away jimmie. But no point in boring everyone to death, it is common knowledge you froth nonsense.

"The other knuckle dragger seems to think everyone that voted for out is a supporter of Enoch Powell."
Nope - just his ideas
Like moall of your posts - your reply is totally devoid of even the effort to rebuff what has been said
