    :love: He should be a hero to everybody, a truly upstanding individual.



    This is the end game result of that nonsense that Merkal is spouting. China is ****ing terrifying and what's more terrifying is how they have all the western politicians in their pocket (minus Trump) and how western politicians are starting to act and sound more and more like the Chinese lunatics. Xi Jinping is as bad as Hitler, Mao, Mussolini, Lenin, Stalin and Hussain.

    Didn’t know a lot of these figures...being charged $2,500 just for an ambulance to come to your location is horrendous.

    God bless the NHS.

    Yeah, my mother who needed emergency back surgery could only have it done at the nearest capable hospital about 2 hours drive away. They said they could do a helicopter ambulance, but it cost around $30K, so she ended up having to have my sister drive her the 2 hours.

    Who is the complete and utter creep on the front row, far right?

    And whilst we are at it who is the charity case who got to sit next to the Queen?

    Don't reckon Everton would even fancy themselves at Nato (A).

    Licence fee decriminalisation being considered

    Imagine this will be discussed a lot as the years go by. But views?

    tbh I am not wholly against this idea, I do not think it should be a criminal offence at all... I do however see where the policy eventually leads and that is shakier ground.

    Disagree 100%. Either the fee is compulsory or it isn't, if it is then enforce it if it isn't then scrap it. :shrug

    Force The BBC to go pay to view like Amazon Prime and Netflix then they would have to up their game instead of the dross they make now, there's only 3 shows i watch on there now - Peaky Blinders,Luther and Line Of Duty.

    It is strange to me that you need a license to watch iPlayer online. How does that work if you are watching in another household, on the train, in a coffee shop etc?

    iPlayer should probably be a subscription service.

    One of the few highlights of the last election was seeing them lose their seats.
