    I doubt you will find a truck driver who voted remain, the owners of the companies will all have voted remain though. This is because before the flood gates opened truck drivers used to earn a small fortune in the UK as it was a very well paid job, now salaried guys who dont have the luxury of owning their own truck earn only slightly more than minimum wage due to all the E Europeans coming over prepared to work for that.

    I hope not, after all this fuss and unnecessariness I want the catastrophe.

    And all this because your standard of living has been diminished by the exchange rate. I've told you how you can make enough money to live the life of riley for your remaining days, just risk your capital backing your convictions and short the , I've even offered to talk you through how to do it.

    But I prefer to look at this way; either SA is an incredibly obnoxious person who gets some sort of perverse pleasure from abusing people, with the foulest sorts of profanities and racist jibes from the safety of wherever he resides. Thus a boor, a cowardly bully and a really disgusting individual that no one with a shred of decency would want to associate with. Or he is just a paid hack, posting his diatribes in a bid to provoke further replies and thus keep TD traffic numbers up.


    Personally, I prefer to be charitable and see SA as rather to be pitied than otherwise, forced as he is by circumstances we can only guess at, to grind away day after day, a Thesaurus in one hand and mouse in the other, making a few Satang here and there.


    What do you think?

    If i were a betting man I'd go with the incredibly obnoxious person.............



    Look, abusing fuckwits, Brexiteers are the very acme of fuckwittery, is fun and it keeps me occupied as I loll about in feckless indolence by my pool in between other pursuits whilst not about the place with the distaff or elsewhere.

    Anyway, remember, friends are only enemies in disguise.

    He's started out as English then became Irish, tbh i reckon he's descends from the valleys of Wales.

    Before he became a sexpat..



    VINEGAR, squirted liberally, is an effective treatment for flying ants. They really don’t like it. Something similar may be happening in our politics.
    We will know more overnight, when the Peterborough by-election result will be announced. Can Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party win this core Middle Britain seat?




    Difficult, but it would be a heck of a result and could do to those insects in Westminster what a dose of Sarson’s does to the winged pests that erupt from house walls on hot days.
    Even if Farage does not pull off a cup upset in Peterborough, Westminster is starting to get jumpy. About time, too! Theresa May quits the Tory leadership tomorrow and the race to succeed her has begun with almost as many runners as the Grand National.
    Quite a few of them will end up in the glue factory.
    Prince Charles’s pro-EU pal Rory Stewart, the little-known International Development Secretary, has made a wonderful fool of himself by standing for the job. Stewart has filmed selfie videos presenting himself as man-of-the-masses, in places such as, er, genteel Kew Gardens.
    Deluded commentators in the Westminster village have praised his social-media “outreach”. It’s the political elite’s echo chamber at work again.
    On Tuesday evening Stewart stood on a box at Speaker’s Corner in London’s Hyde Park, to “speak to the people”. What a gumby. The only bystanders at Speaker’s Corner these days are tourists, ice-cream vendors and a few winos.
    GYIMAH SIMPLY LOOKED A PRAT

    If Stewart really wants to meet the people to see what they think of his plan to soften Brexit to the point of non-existence, he should haul himself off to somewhere like Asda in Walsall, in the West Midlands.
    Brummies would soon let him know exactly what they thought of his proposal to ignore the 2016 referendum’s 17.4million Leave voters.

    Meanwhile, the Health Secretary, Matt Hancock (another soft Brexiteer), polished his credentials to be Tory leader by releasing a video of himself playing office cricket with a few of his civil servants. I had to watch this stunt twice just to make sure it wasn’t a spoof from Armando Iannucci, one of the sharp comic brains behind Alan Partridge.
    Not that Hancock is the silliest of the bunch. Sam Gyimah, an obscure former junior minister, was last night persisting with his leadership campaign even though he did not have the declared support of a single MP (except, presumably, himself).
    This was almost pathetic in the proper sense of the word — ie enough to make you feel sad for the bloke. But in the end I’m afraid my heart remained unmoved. Gyimah simply looked a prat.
    Labour’s comrades are at each other’s throats, the Lib Dems have their own leadership contest (ZZZZZZZZ) and the Change UK brigade, just a few weeks after their creation, are disintegrating like one of strongman Geoff Capes’s deckchairs. More than half of them quit, leaving a rump that will be led by spluttering Anna Soubry, as shouty as a Jack Russell snapping at a postie’s ankles.
    All this was happening while Hurricane Trump blew into town and gave half-pint London Mayor Sadiq Khan a few home truths. The President also showed Jeremy Corbyn to be two-faced, revealing that Corbyn — who happily joined a rally where Trump was slandered as a fascist — had begged him for a one-to-one meeting. The crawler.
    Looking at this turmoil, you might think: “That’s it, I’m emigrating to strong, stable Venezuela.” Don’t book your ticket to Caracas just yet.
    Call me a crazy optimist, but I think the mayhem in our politics is healthy — a sign that it’s finally sinking into Westminster’s blockheads that they need to start reflecting and stop blocking public opinion.
    Theresa May first. The PM’s departure was so often predicted that it is hard to believe she and husband Philip are finally emptying their smalls drawers at No10.
    But after her tearful announcement two weeks ago in Downing Street, there is no way back for Madam Glumbucket. A nation mourns? Don’t let’s put it that strongly but nor should we gloat.
    Allow her a decent adieu. She occupied high office with dignity and seriousness and was not tacky, like some recent PMs. There was no Carole Caplin or Lord Levy in her coterie, thank goodness.
    MORE BALLSY ABOUT A NO DEAL BREXIT

    If that was an example of politicians learning from their predecessors’ mistakes, might the same be happening with the EU crisis? Tory and Labour MPs have been terrified by the rise of Farage’s Brexit Party.
    Peterborough was a swing seat won by Labour in 2017 by now-disgraced Fiona Onasanya, jailed after trying to cheat a motoring offence.
    Whatever the result, the Peterborough campaign showed that neither of the two main parties can take Middle Britain for granted.
    That has made northern Labour MPs wary of seeking a second referendum. And it has caused a big change in the Tory leadership election campaign.
    Front-runner Boris Johnson and his main rivals Michael Gove, Jeremy Hunt, Dominic Raab and Sajid Javid are all being much more ballsy about a No Deal Brexit.
    The three Remain candidates — Hancock, Stewart and Gyimah — are trailing badly. It is hard to say who will win but if, as likely, it is Boris, Gove or Raab, the next PM should be much more in tune with public opinion.

    I told Tax two years ago that my Ford contact ....quit the UK if the UK left the customs union
    that toothless old tea lady that was gamming you behind the canteen at bridgend was as deluded as you are.

    this engine plant closure has more to do with the european and chinese lack of demand for new cars and rather slow move to hybrid and electric cars than brexit.

    Ah yes, the rapid fleeing of the car industry to the East and BREXIT are two completely unrelated things.



    Demand fluctuates, and does not on its own result in an industry bailing out of a particular country.

    Indeed, petrol engines are a thing of the past now.

    Most new cars are hybrid or totally electric nowadays.

    and that market will be controlled by the chinese as they have all the access to africas supply of the rare metals needed for the batteries.

    whilst oxfam were sending in bob geldof and his holier than thou sexpest do-gooders to give 'em clean water and contraceptives, the chinese were buying up the mineral rights and building infrasctructure for them so that the 50p a week child labourers could get to the mining sites every morning on time.

    sadly, this is never going to happen. I was looking forward to it, but the sneaky fookers realized their mistakes

    now for a good laugh, watch them prepare a 180 and fuck over every Brexiteer idiots out there

    it's like another shitshow but in rewind mode, soon you will see Buriram squeal how Remain is the best option for GB because BoJo said so

    You gormless silly old man, the Welsh plant produces petrol engines which contrary to your dementia is still the primary unit in demand. The UK has stopped buying cars in the last month, 40% down on yoy month last year, not because he is bored with shiny new cars but because the British consumer does not wish to commit to debt not knowing what Brexit will do to his arse.
    Honestly, Tax, you might as well put a fucking gun to your head now, or book your room in Switzerland, rather than wait a month longer while your brain turns to mush.
    Frankly, I really find it quite mystifying why a man supposedly intelligent enough to pass his tooth pulling exams can be so fucking stupid in his twilight years to not see what folly Brexit truly is. I can understand the lumpen ill educated and the perverse not understanding but, really, how on earth can a chap with a degree under his belt, and 50 years before the mast be sooo fucking stupid? Where is the benefit?
    This bullshit renaissance of british mercantilism flying free of the filthy foreigner is such utter crap only a juvenile fucking chinless wonder wanker sucking on Bill Cash's dick would fall for it.
    What is it Tax, is it a dick problem or what?

    Or are you suggesting these 100,000 gross a year legal businessmen do not pay any insurance, maintenance, taxes fees, lease costs or do not bank any of the gross income for future truck replacement?

    I'm not suggesting anything of the sort, just saying gross earnings if own your own truck are in excess of 100k, I will ask him the net figure next time I see him and report back if he tells me.

    ford have been closing plants all over the world, they closed a belgian plant in 2014, in 2016 they closed 6 australian plants, they have also in the past few years closed plants in the philippines, malaysia, mexico and canada.

    all brexit related no doubt.

    outside of the usa, people dont want fords. they are unfashionable and seen as lower end, even though they are as good if not better than many of the german cars, people want branded german cars or the more reliable and better priced cars from korea and japan, and within the next 5 years i expect the chinese will have upped their game and be taking an even larger share of the shrinking market.

    the eu benefits mostly the germans, who have sucked dry the weaker euro states such as italy, spain, greece and portugal. the poorer eastern european members are losing their youth along with their brains thanks to migration to the richer western states. discontent is growing, fracture lines are developing and the natives are growing restless. we have nothing to fear in getting out, once it is finally over and some kind of stability returns, which it will, then investment will return and your precious will grab back some of its former glory.

    you are obviously too old, too decrepit and too afraid of change which is why you have fallen into the dull, lifeless routine so common amongst retirees, stuck, bridges burnt, in the land of smiles. wake up, step onto the balcony for a fart, read the papers, go for a swim, walk the malls, have another whingeing session with some desperate bar owner, spag bol at marios with a glass of shitty red or a clostridium seafood curry at pattayas equivalent of weatherspoons with a bottle of chang and then back to the gaff, aircon on full, for some late night netflix. day after day after fucking day. its a slow death. living the dream my arse.

    brexit ? sometimes you have just got to take a punt and hope it works. and i consider brexit a punt worth taking. if only to free ourselves from the inevitable slow german takeover of europe. they enrich themselves and throw the rest of us the scraps. their endless lobbying dictating eu policy

    its an opportunity to be grasped. and we should grasp it fearlessly with both hands and we would be trading as before with the eu within 6 months.

    Ford have a $14Bn Global saving programme to deliver but as usual soundbites are cherry picked by remainers to suit their rhetoric.
