    Hong Kong UK citizenship offer.

    The UK owes Hongkong a massive debt in both financial and humanitarian terms. After 100 years of forced occupation and a disgusting history of demanding money from the Chinese (worth several billions in today's money) that fact we are now offering support to some of the disenfranchised Hongkong...

    Labour going forward

    Lets face it Corbyn was the man to get radical change that may or may not have had significant impact on peoples lives. And he screwed it up by failing to get off the fence over Brexit and show a clear line Stammer is the new low impact, safe bet leader who will just carry on with more of the...

    The EU going forward

    Entering the EU block from outside the EU block there are hard borders. Inside the EU there are still borders but theres no hard borders, but theres nothing stopping them simply setting up check points for the covid passport. Alternatively just pass a law that you cant cross borders without...

    Watch The Lira Now

    Strange question? Looking at the Turkish economy and the powers that are influencing it and then considering the close neighbors Turkey has and the potential for conflict, you can surmise two things 1: If you income is in Sterling right now, you can live like a king in Turkey on little money...

    Labour going forward

    Based on what evidence? MPs seeking reelection in their constituencies had better be representing the views of their constituents if they want to keep their jobs? So your accusation is either wrong or 60% of Labour MPs are willing to throw themselves on their swords they feel so strongly that...

Then capping it off by suggesting we should all just...

    Brexit going forward

    That is of course utter drivel Quite aside from the fact you have described the EU commission as a democracy and the UK cabinet as a dictatorship, your understanding of the balance of power in the EU is obviously either non-existent or deliberately obtuse in your effort to mislead people. Try...

    Watch The Lira Now

    It is what it is We just got two year residency and they didn't ask to see bank accounts or proof of income?? Cant guarantee your application will go the same way but that was ours. In 2008 we transferred £5000 into a Turkish account which was earning 19% interest and the interest would...

    Brexit going forward

    I am confused by the claim of intelligence followed by a totally ignorant claim of non elected EU bureaucrats making policy? The MEPs who make up the EU parliament are elected? The leader of the EU is elected? Who exactly are these unelected people of which you speak? Can you explain to me...

    Labour going forward

    over 60% of labor MPs now believe running on a policy of rejoining the EU is a vote winner. Only 15% of labor MPs suggest it's not. Seeing as MPs tend to represent their constituents? It's likely this shows a trend across voters in labor-held seats. Much as id like to have seen when a true...

    Brexit going forward

    Not just the Expats Millions in the UK voted for their own demise. My long-time dive buddy Howard invited me to a BBQ before all the Covid nonsense and he's very pro-Brexit. I suggested to him many would lose their jobs and he laughed and said it was all scare-mongering. His next-door...

    Brexit going forward

    I am very lucky in so far as I can afford a decent home in both Turkey and the UK, so if it went wrong in Turkey I could at least just go home. That said, I plan to be in Turkey 8-9 months a year out of 12. Frankly only going home because I want to see family and friends. Aside from that, it...
