That might be amusing to the likes of us, but to yer average knuckle-dragging S*n "reader" it's a serious statement.

"Anybody who doesn't vote the way we tell them is undemocratic. Democracy is Do As We Say. Anyone not buying into this is an Enemy Of The People."

And so the divisions in society widen. The petty hatreds are ramped up. And when another one of the "other" gets kicked to death the S*n can wring it's hands and say "Why oh why oh why?".

Contemptible pile of shits that they are.

Donald Trump barely knew what “NHS” meant. Put on the spot, he said it would be on the table....
So the man they say we should respect and welcome, among all the other praise they've given him, does not even understand what the NHS is and wasn't briefed on the seriousness of saying it's up for grabs? This is the man The Sun wants us to suck up to even after effectively just admitting he's fucking thick?

How on earth is "The President of the United States, our greatest ally, doesn't know what the NHS is" any sort of defence?

Plus, Trump knows full fucking well what it is. He's slagged it off in the past while promoting private healthcare.





THE SUN SAYS No Government would compromise our NHS but that won’t stop Labour and Remoaners kicking off

WE cannot recall a more infantile public “debate” than the knicker-wetting over whether the NHS would be part of a post-Brexit trade deal with the US.

Donald Trump barely knew what “NHS” meant. Put on the spot, he said it would be on the table, then said not — but too late to stop Labour and the Remoaner hordes cynically kicking off.

“Leave the EU and the wicked Tory toffs will flog our precious NHS to Trump” goes the latest juvenile attack line. Spooked Tory leadership wannabes insist it won’t happen “on their watch”.

What an absurd pantomime.

No Government would compromise our free healthcare. But if US firms offer the NHS cheaper, better drugs or equipment, why wouldn’t we bite their arm off? Isn’t every penny precious?

Our politics is infested with MPs posturing like teenagers. Where are the adults?










Pride in UK

THE Queen spoke movingly yesterday of Britain’s “unconquerable resolve” as our troops began liberating Europe.

How depressing, though, that so few of 2019’s politicians display any.

The Left find national pride offensive. And many Remainers consider us a terminally-declining tinpot country too feeble to risk standing on our own feet.

Some would prefer to upend our democracy — a system “worth dying for”, as Ronald Reagan said on a previous D-Day anniversary. A system 16 nations yesterday swore to defend.

Our troops are still the bravest of the brave, like their predecessors in 1944.

Too many modern politicians are an insult to those who came before them.






Mad Max

HOW did we hire a third successive idiot as Director of Public Prosecutions?

When Max Hill branded Boris Johnson a “traitor” over Brexit in 2016, and hoped he would come a cropper if he ever made PM, he wasn’t some no-mark gobbing off on Twitter.

He was a QC poised to land a hugely powerful job.

Now we are meant to respect this verbally incontinent Remainiac’s wisdom.

Hill should be walking the plank. He may have to if Boris does win power.








Bleak choice

SUN readers in Peterborough can pick a new MP today.

You could back the Brexit Party as a protest at the ongoing shambles. Or vote Tory, hoping a new leader sorts it out.

You could vote Lib Dem/Remain and stick two fingers up at democracy.

Or go with Labour, the racist extremists with an unfathomable Brexit policy, who last time gave your constituency a deranged Corbynista later jailed for lying.

But don’t let us influence you.

Never mention how that generation voted in 1945, do they? You know, the election that gave us the NHS they're wanking on about above. Don't kid yourselves that they don't want rid of it.

Erm...this may be hard to believe, but Rod Liddle may have possibly just outdone himself.

He's now claiming the death toll of Chernobyl is actually very small and the countless deaths following didn't really happen. It's all some anti-nuclear agenda:

Boost nuclear power

THOROUGHLY enjoyed Sky and HBO’s series Chernobyl.It was a great reminder of the sheer grimness, ineptitude and brutality of the old Soviet Union.

As we now know, the reactor at Chernobyl had a flawed design. But layers of bureaucracy and Communist Party bullying prevented the experts from doing anything about it.

Mind you, it is worth remembering that this was by far and away the worst ever disaster at a nuclear plant, anywhere. And the number of dead?

Just 31.

When it happened the anti-nuclear lobby predicted hundreds of thousands of later deaths from cancers. This does not seem to have happened at all. The second worst ever nuclear catastrophe? The one in Fukushima, Japan, in 2011. Total number of deaths from radiation? At the very most – just one, and that is disputed.

Nuclear power is by far and away the safest means of generating electricity.

More people have died building or maintaining wind turbines than have died as the consequence of nuclear power


There's the usual shite from him, sticking up for Ann Widdecombe etc, but I feel the absolute staggering nature of the above shouldn't be detracted from!

Communists, of course, will lie, dissemble and generally fuck about when it comes to the design, operation and maintenance of their nuclear power plants. When it comes to the death tolls from the disaster, especially the secondary deaths, however, their word is gold. Gold.

As was made extremely clear at the end of the final episode.

In the immediate aftermath of the explosion, or as a direct result of the explosion, 31-50.
Excess deaths as a result of subsequent contamination, including the clean up, 4,000 to 90,000.

Intentional confusion of the unit of study.

This is just a mishmash of bollocks. They don't know if they're complimenting the Queen, attacking Remainers or the Left or Obama or praising Trump and it just turns into a deranged rant:

Trump cards

THERE is a lesson for some younger Royals from Donald Trump’s memorable State Visit.

We have no idea if the Queen, Charles or Camilla liked him. That’s the point.

For three days they rolled out the red carpet, charmed the world’s most powerful man and treated him and his wife to the pomp and pageantry we excel at.

The President loved it. And the older Royals, regardless of personal likes or dislikes, honoured his country and his historic role with grace and humour.

They did their job, and put to shame the tantrums of the Left and our staggeringly unprofessional Commons Speaker.

The result? Trump has never felt closer to our country.

Barack Obama sneered that we would be “at the back of the queue” for a trade deal if we dared to vote Leave.

His Remainer fans loved stating it as fact.

But we did vote Leave, and Obama’s successor can’t wait now to get cracking on it.

Maybe someone should prosecute those Remainers for “lying”. It’s all the rage.






Here they seem to admit that they're completely out of ideas on Brexit:

Tory leadership candidates need to tell us precisely how they plan to deliver Brexit

IT’S time for detailed plans from every Tory leadership contender: how, precisely, will you deliver Brexit?

The next PM will be picked not by voters but by Tory MPs and members.

So the country deserves more than rallying calls or vague assertions that they can succeed where Theresa May failed.

If No Deal is your strategy, so be it.

How will it happen without an election, since the Tories have no current majority for it and the Speaker Bercow will bust his considerable gut to prevent it?

If you aim to win new concessions from the EU — which are vital since Mrs May’s deal is dead — great.

But what is Plan B if they refuse?

Nothing matters more than defeating Corbyn and delivering Brexit.

And the former can’t happen without the latter.

One or two candidates have set out their stall. The rest must do so now.




And the usual playground tactics of "but the bigger boys are worse than us":

Cleaning bill

WE rarely agree with Philip Hammond. But he’s right about the folly of blindly committing to “net zero” emissions within 30 years.

Every gas boiler and cooker, and every petrol and diesel vehicle, scrapped.

A nationwide blizzard of charging points. Far less meat in our diet. And much else.

We doubt the Chancellor’s £1trillion cost estimate — but even if it’s half, that’s money we cannot spend on health, schools or police.

What is the Government doing to convince the public this is a good idea?

We all want a cleaner world, but what happens when services are slashed to fund it?

The eco lobby predicts a huge price if we FAIL to act. But UK emissions are a minuscule fraction of the global total.

Voters won’t back this revolution unless every other major country — many far worse polluters than us — does too.

No Government would compromise our free healthcare.

A Tory one would if they could blame it on the "Will of the people".
But if US firms offer the NHS cheaper, better drugs or equipment, why wouldn’t we bite their arm off? Isn’t every penny precious?
They won't. Why would they?

A new study from academic researchers found that 66.5 percent of all bankruptcies were tied to medical issues —either because of high costs for care or time out of work. An estimated 530,000 families turn to bankruptcy each year because of medical issues and bills, the research found.

Metropolitan elite is normalising cocaine use and the victims are poor kids trafficked into county lines

WHILE Tory leader candidates rush to confess to past drug use, Sajid Javid is right to highlight how the use of cocaine by the middle classes destroys lives.

Last week a report branded the UK the cocaine capital of Europe and warned of the “Uberisation” of the drugs trade.

Our story today on cokeheads in Tunbridge Wells illustrates the extent of it.

Of course, the lives being destroyed by class A drugs are rarely those of the well-heeled customers.

The users simply line the pockets of the drug dealers, fuel the crime-wave that goes hand-in-hand with the drugs trade and don’t give a damn about the harm caused to those caught up in the drugs chain.

More and more that means children trafficked into the “county lines” crime epidemic.

It also includes young people sucked into class A drugs use because they see it being normalised by the metropolitan elite.

The idea that snorting coke at dinner parties is a victimless crime is a fiction.







A new deal

PIG-headed Michel Barnier has been at it again. The EU’s chief Brexit negotiator warned that there would be no reworking of our withdrawal agreement just because we will have a new Prime Minister.

But while he continued playing hard-ball, German Chancellor Angela Merkel was telling Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt that the EU will consider a new deal drawn up by the next PM.

That was even before Boris Johnson’s threat to withhold our £39billion “divorce payment” until a satisfactory deal is on the table.

Mrs Merkel knows better than most that it is in everybody’s interest — the EU’s as much as ours — to get an acceptable deal. Without one, we all lose.

The sooner that Mr Barnier is out of a job the better.

Damn right on that first one. You'd never see a tabloid journalist using cocaine. Never.

I find it difficult to believe that Pob's marching powder was a solo effort.
Sourced by himself, smuggled quietly and surreptitiously enjoyed as he excused himself from the crowd to the privacy of the men's room.

I believe the party (or parties) in question were at his place. He referred to people 'snorting cocaine all around him'. Suggests to me that he was following the 90s practice of chucking a big bag on the table.
