He circumnavigated and contravened Hitler's racial policy at every turn.

If you are right that the Labour party is an anti-semitic political party, then one of their members chastising her leaders for not doing enough about this and personally declaring war on racism, just makes the comparison better, and should be something you would cheer and applaud. But your hatred of Labour (or indifference to racism...) means you cannot follow simple logic.

8 half naked men in a hot tub. Seems pretty Greek to me.

Jess Phillips out of the leadership race and Thornberry can't have much longer to go so I guess it's going to be down to Wrong-Daily, Starmer or Nandy. I actually like Lisa Nandy more the more I read about her but I can't see her winning and I don't think she has the charisma to take on Johnson at the dispatch box.

Out of that dire lot, Nandy has to be the best choice. I wouldn't completely rule her out either as she has the support of the GMB.

I certainly loath Momentum, and make no apologies for that.

Harry is in Canada with Megan. All is right with the world! lol

Tell me why anyone should care about these two living their lives they way they want to?

I commend them for doing this because you know the Royals aren't happy about it.

Because it is the British taxpayer footing the bill.

Personally, I would feel much better if my taxmoney was used for a young couple to enjoy their lives and love in peaceful Canada than for them having to endure a tortuous existence as meaningless royals in the UK.

You are veering into a whole different type of argument, but so long as they are royalty, and consequentially derive money from the nation, it is seen as an unwritten prerequisite that they fulfill numerous obligations in Britain.

I think they have just proven you wrong.

Harry is royal by birth thus will always need security. The Queen should pay for that out of her own pocket.

You clearly do not know sufficient about the story to comment. They are forgoing public money, paying back monies spent on refurbishing Frogmore House, and resigning from public duties. They also can no longer use HRH and Harry has relinquished his military appointments.

What I want to make clear is we’re not walking away, and we certainly aren’t walking away from you. Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the Commonwealth, and my military associations, but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn’t possible.

Prince Harry,

That's brilliant, then :) Then surely everybody is happy?

Didn't they say they wanted to be financially independent? In that case they should pay for security.

Don't know about anybody else but I'm glad to see the UK "taking back control" post Brexit. 

Rule Britannia! God Save the Queen! Tinkety tonk and down with the Nazis old fruit etc etc! :lol:

Donald Trump will slap tariffs on UK goods if Boris Johnson introduces a 'tech tax' on Google and Amazon, US treasury secretary warns

  • Steven Mnuchin's warning comes after France backed out and pledged with US
  • UK PM Boris Johnson in December had vowed to make tech giants pay fair tax
  • Italy also approved a similar tax in the 2019 budget but it has not activated it yet
  • Mnuchin said he hoped UK and Italy would suspend their plans to impose taxes

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has said Britain and Italy will face tariffs if they proceed with a tax on digital companies like Google and Facebook.

Mnuchin's warning comes after France backed out and pledged with the United States to avoid a trade war until at least the end of the year.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson in December had vowed to make major multinational companies pay their fair share of tax, including the implementation of a Digital Services Tax.

Fuck em then. 

Let's get Bramerica done. We can just exclusively trade with our former Colonies, and if that works, (and I cant see how it could fail) maybe get a little Empire started up again.

Or Amexit.

I think a good case could be made for you not being able to govern yourself and that you should welcome Scandinavian overrule again. I am grinding my battle axe as I speak.

If this was the case we would still be Brexiting considering Norway has sensibly rejected joining the EU twice in referenda.
