Let’s just get it done. We were great before let’s be great again after. There’s so much being neglected
What you have forgotten to mention is that the EU have ruled out an extension past the 31st and Rees Mogg has confirmed that the vote on Saturday is to vote for the deal or leave without one.
So many Emeritus Professors of International Politics from the University of Wetherspoons on here today....
It's just Tory window dressing for No Deal. They know and frankly don't care that it won't pass through Parliament. It's a PR exercise. Please close this Overton Window.
I hope Boris counts that bloody clock down to Halloween & simply does nothing if Parliament reject this deal regardless of what the work place remoaning bullies are saying or threatening to do to try & stop a no deal Brexit.
Realistically all sides need compromise. It is clear the U.K. has but so has the eu. And we have to consider that this is not ‘Brexit Done’. Merely the move to getting brexit done without complete carnage.
I truly believe that leaving is wrong but this seems to represent a reasonable balance for all sides to get behind. (Although I’d still prefer to see art 50 revoked!)
If UK cherish her union as a kingdom then it's the most appropriate moment to call for a fresh referendum and get back to the EU with humility.
BBC did not mention anything about the statement that there will be NO further extension. Boris now has the ball in his court to break the defiance of the remainers by insisting on this deal or no deal. Cannot wait til Saturday.
Still not seen any details of this deal, is it another leave in name only T.May disaster style one?
And the award for most awkward smile goes to.....
So if BJ is supposed to ask for an extension, did the UK parliament take it for granted the EU has to accept that request ? What happens if EU refuses and as Junker has hinted there will be no further extension ?!
The trouble with Brexit is that it's impossible to satisfy everyone. Some remainers may settle for this to get Brexit out of the way, but most leavers never wanted a deal at all, so it's a least worst solution!
If we learn anything from this, it has to be never hold a referendum again without giving due consideration to the consequences!
If NI is not satisfied with the BREXIT DEAL maybe The Prime Minister is Contented with the Deal.
Another deal, another vote, another rejection, another delay. On and on and on. 1 party wants to leave with or without , 1 party wants another referendum and 1 party wants to scrap brexit altogether. The people of the UK are fed up with it all. That lot in parliament should be sacked
Does that mean £350 million a week to the NHS as per Boris bus campaign?
So the Irish deal rejected previously as unacceptable is now, mysteriously, acceptable? This 'deal' stinks worse than May's thrice rejected Brexit agreement so how is this progress??
Keep up BBC...or quote all the facts.Juncker has now said he will not extend the deadline after October 31st. So it's this deal or no deal. No straws left to clutch BBC
That smile on BJs face. Something doesnt feel right 😂😂. But anyway, whichever the outcome, all the best to the British people. We are at a point where each country needs to be at their best coz the world is dying.
It’s that deal or no deal. No referendum, no change of decision. We are going out with this deal or without it. Glad to hear it
DUP vote against by all means. Then BoJo asks for an extension, which also gets veto'd. Then we leave on 31st with no deal. Exactly as is should be.
Have the DUP and Labour already seen the deal, even before it was agreed with the EU they have announced they are going to vote against it.
So Juncker has reduced the options to deal, leave with no deal or revoke article 50...
Johnson may have one but should we congratulating ourselves on putting a border down the Irish Sea?
First of all I just want to show off my top fan badge and second I have nothing to say so I’m just writing this to protect my badge
Ffs Is that really our leader,what has the uk come to,if that is what we have to offer :(.
So much for "the art of the deal", or better yet, acknowledge the need for a primer on better letter writing. I suspect "the bin" has a few more tidbits of correspondence from Trump. What a horrible mess this has become, and at the cost of many, many lives.
But, it was such a beautiful letter! I'm surprised that they didn't fall in love with each other!
Great Leader Keep it’s up 👍🏼
The thought behind sending the letter explains the inability to glean success from repeated bankruptcies. It's the thermonuclear Peter Principle.
Reading what it said, it lacked much in the way of Statecraft. The reality TV show host really is way out of his depth.
Vulnerable and stupid.
Not a good look for America.
Exactly! They was no green light given to Turkey. It's CNN and the stupid Washington Post Cook up stories... Thanks so much BBC for digging up hard for all of us...
A ten year old could have written a more coherent letter; how embarrassing for the USA.
I had to check the letter was real! I'm not surprised it ended up in the bin.
On the Kurds, he added: "They fought with us. We made a lot of money for them to fight with us, and that's okay. They did well when they fought with us. They didn't do so well when they didn't fight with us." 🤦♀️
When you have a reality TV personality as president of a world power you should expect this and more. Sit back and enjoy the show.
Is there room for both writer and recipient in that bin as well?
And so he should. But what I would like to see a public condemnation of this “President’s” actions and 5th grade words by World leaders.
In his defence, everyone does that to the Donald's letters, even Melania... I'm sure it's because of the incoherent ramblings.
I generally do not agree with "binning of letters" but given the source of this one, I can understand why Erdogan 'binned it'😏😏
What is next bbc? Are you going to make news about how Erdogan stole Trumps sweet?
Is this a presidential letter?! Really?! It looks like a send up from “The Onion.”
The next we shall read, is an attack on Turkish territory. Both have let their egos override common sense
It would have been rejected by any primary school teacher.
I wrote a formal letter better than him when I was grade one.
He was Charitable instead that should have been used as a toilet paper.
It’s actually a serious matter but I had to lol when I read the letter. It’s difficult to make a spoof out of this because it really looks like one
Of courses it was, it was drafted in a 4th Grade classroom.
It would have been more appropriately dealt with in the rest room
Can he throw the author into the bin as well, please?
It’s not just in the UK. I’m currently in the US and have lost all data services for the best part of 18hrs! 😔
Last month signal was down most of the month, now this month its still really patchy. Massively inconvenient for those of us that are disabled and require their phones to contact our support and family.
I left them last month after I didn’t get any network coverage for 3 days. They used the excuse “upgrading your network to 5G” that’s nice but I’d rather have a 3G service that actually WORKED
Could be as simple as an erroneous line of code. It's finding that line of code amongst the entire infrastructure that isn't so simple.
Well I wish they would hurry up and get it sorted. I'm using Wi-Fi in the house but when I go out I don't have anything. But my daughter and husband are also on 3 they are fine.
Voice, text and data? So the entirety of your mobile service? 🤦🏻♂️
No problem in Bristol area. Of all the networks I’ve used, 3 have been the most reliable I would say.
I was with the three network for many years! I had no signal/WiFi for weeks on and off!
However, when I had finally got a signal they would then say I had used all my data allowance!! There customer service is non existant and everytime I tried to cancel my account with them they told me the computers were down and I would have to phone back! After a couple of more months of trying to leave I stopped the direct debit as they were taking double the monthly amount out saying I had used more data even though I had set up a data limit with three themselves! I had to get the resolver people involved and only then did they cancel my account with them and pay the over payments back! Would never use them again!
Have zero signal in the middle of London when I’m in work - all the time, not just today. Need to change supplier!
Mine went down last night and not long getting back. Though some services still off and still on H reception!
Yes I notice it this morning. No reception and made me late to work this morning due to absence of data
If you British folks wanna know the truth, this is a commerical sabotage from Huawei and China due to the fact that Three is a subsidiary company of CK Hutchison owned by Hong Kong tycoon Lee Ka Shing who has been very high profile and vocally supporting the Hong Kong Protests and asking the government to show mercy to the protesting students. China is sending a message to the tech tycoons that they can send substantial threats globally to anyone.
Aberdeen had problem from yesterday about 11pm till today morning 9am. Still poor internet and slow
Signal been patchy all day, I'm back up and running 4g now but even had to join the office WiFi this morning. Now my boss has a record of how hard I been skiving 😂
Plymouth had problems this morning, mine was ok but my sons and daughters wasn’t working
Three Customer here. (But the GCHQ knew that anyway). I've noticed zero issues today. And I've changed counties a few times in the past few hours.
Three is the worst ever network, I have been having issues for one month at least - switching to EE soon fortunately.
I got message saying they were doing work in the NE23 area
Internet went off last night at 11 ish back on an hour later then went off again. Fine today. We’re with TalkTalk.
I timed my trip to the US (and Feeling at Home here) with suspicious accuracy...
Service back up here in W Yorks, but very, very slow.
Yep , because of that I had to look at people on my comute this morning :))
My grandsons had problem since his last upgrade to 13. ....
Never had a problem with 3 before but I've had no service since last night.
The world is still turning, and I'll get over it though
Really weird network mine works fine in my Sony and my misses is dwn on her iPhone, and when mines dwn hers works, can't wait till January when contracts up.
"It's a great new deal, possibly the greatest deal ever, nobody does deals greater than me, we're going to make England great again..."
Great for who. The tories and the lining of their pockets?
Good luck with that then! I hope it fails....again! The only people to benefit will be hedge fund investors and whoever’s pockets they line. All disgraceful.
I am so angry I can not find the words. Johnson should not be able to just ignore the law that says he must ask for an extension if parliament do not vote for his deal.
I am sick of his, gove, pretty awful etc and their weasel words.
Be grown up; be pragmatic; be realistic and put the country first
A “great” new deal? Has Boris been taking language lessons from Trump? Next it’ll be a very big deal, the best deal 😒🙄
Great for who because it won’t be great for the average joe
ok Brexit supporters!.. can you tell the rest of us, all or any benefits we will enjoy after we abandon the EU? Do you think the privileged, old Etonians, millionaires, care about anybody but themselves? Do they use the NHS, rely on state pensions. You voted for them so they could dodge the European Tax Avoidance Directive and short the pound to enrich themselves at the expense of the rest of us. To support Brexit you have to be rich or have been mugged by all the lies from Johnson, Farage etc.
Great new deal is Johnson speak for a worse deal than before but I'm going to flog it as the bees knees.
I do not trust his word on anything. Never have and not going to start today.
If BJ and the EU think it’s a great deal, then nailed on, it isn’t. The rest of parliament won’t vote for it either way; they’re only interested in seeing the Tories burn and grabbing power.
Can we just have options. People who voted leave can leave with this "new deal" and us remainers can still freely travel and all. That would be nice 😂😂
Still won't get through parliament. Still going to be an extension and an election.
“Great new deal” for whom?
"great new deal". Remember that boris has the truth-telling ability of donald trump
As the ancient tradition dictates, the Prime Minister duly announces a 'great new Brexit deal' to be voted down by parliament. Why this tradition still persists is lost in the mists of time...
Yes Theresa May did this too..
And as usual it won’t get passed in parliament
And parliament will reject it and france will block an extension and we will leave with no deal! "They call me septic peg"
The DUP still haven't changed their stance from this morning, so no idea why Boris has just tweeted this!
Can he write the details on a double decker bus 🚎 so I can see?
This must be a great new brexit deal no one thought of,CAVEATS !!- Everyone around the table of negotiation was very unhappy ☹️ .All of a sudden it’s all very clear about what we want. he might have signed the documents before reading the details, very predictable of his unpredictability.
So, a botched Brexit deal has been achieved. One that will leave the UK weaker, in debt, in recession, and frankly in a right royal mess.
Now let's put it to the UK people in a peoples vote. All of them, including those of us living in the EU.
Time to get it done now but let’s be honest, it won’t go through because it could give the UK Golden Unicorns and Corbyn and the socialist massive will still vote against it.
We’re currently on Germany++. There is no deal greater, or even equivalent, to the massive advantages we already enjoy and are p*ssing away for no real reason.
Getting a deal agreed with the EU is the easy part. Getting a deal agreed with the shower we have in Parliament who have rejected the result of the Referendum for 3½ years now, is impossible.
Can't wait for DUP being the main star of the show on Saturday! 😀
If this is truly the best deal that the EU can offer and the remainer Parliament again votes it down surely the EU should refuse any extension request as there is no point in granting one with such an impasse?
I am so sorry to hear this news. He was an ethical, compassionate, and pragmatic lawmaker. We need more men and women like this in office. RIP
My heart is broken for his family and for our country! Thank you Elijah Cummings for your life long advocacy for civil rights, human decency and justice. ☹️
Sad day. This man dedicated his life to service for our country fighting each day for equality and justice. One of his many lessons was “WE’RE BETTER THAN THAT” which he shouted in the walls of our Congress many times in an attempt to bring about calm and sanity. RIP, good man.
A truly great American and human being. A soul of incredible light and goodness. May he rest with the Lord and be at peace.
He leaves us with a challenge to be better people and to live up to our potential for greatness and justice. As individuals. As a community. As a nation.
A gentleman, statesman and an American of great esteem- RIP Representative Elijah Cummings. The son of sharecroppers, he over came all the odds against him. It is with one heart and one voice by the whole American People, we are grateful to you for your service to our nation.🇺🇸
This is appropriate place and time for thoughts and prayers.
This is a true Patriot prayers for his family the world has lost a good and great man. 😢
Wonderful leader and life long advocate for equal rights. I respected how he stood up for what he believed in.
A Great Man has passed, and the gods know we still need the like of his charactor, the very highest.
May his example be a shining beacon to those who seek to follow the trail he has blazed.
May those who follow upon his trail be many.
Condolences and prayers to the family.
One less DemocRAT in DC & Baltimore, Thank you.
A great loss for the country and for Baltimore! A great man of unmeasurable integrity! He will me missed and cherished forever!
A man with plans, visions but his last hour came. This is a reminder to us all that the day like this is coming therefore we need to make our relationship with God. This will make us to have eternal life and is enabled if we believe in Jesus Christ. John 3:16
probably dies of a heart ache from watching what is happening to our country. Sad. This man served us well.
Why do the good die so young? Such poor timing to lose such a dedicated servant of justice.
What a great loss! Oh God! I noticed there were some weight loss and something didn't looked ok to me (I'm a doctor and doctors have an obvious eye to see that something must be wrong),but since no one talked about it,I just let it slide. If he had heart issues,these late events certainly did brought way too much stress over him. A voice of reason and a gentleman through and through. What a great loss for USA politics! Deepest condolences to his family. May he Rest In Peace.
A great man, who served his country well. A big loss not only to the House and his Community, but most of all to his family.
How convenient, so much for the missing millions.
Ah no! I really respected Mr Cummings. He was the voice of reason. And able to reach across the aisle. RIP.
Chairman Cummings, RIP good sir, you have served this nation with the highest integrity. We mourn your passing and your presence will be missed. Thank you for all you have given.
How sad. He was a good man and am sure he will be sorely missed by all of his constituents. Rest in peace, Mr. Cummings. 😥
A true American Patriot who fought for the common good of all. He will be sorely missed, blessings to his family during this difficult time.
I'm shocked and deeply saddened at his passing. We need more men and women like him.in office now more than ever before. Great loss to our country. My deepest condolences to the family.
Our country has lost a Patriot and a hero.
Oh no.... what an incredible example of leadership.
Hell of a Loss.. Rest Easy Sir, & Thank You for Serving Your Country.
The outfits are beautiful, very feminine, elegant and classy, whilst fitting with local culture. How can anyone not be proud?
It is getting excessive comparing her to Diana. Every time she goes out, she is compared to Diana and this is too much. I rather focus on Kate and why to bring back Diana on every occassion.
She looks very pretty. There are always comparisons. We love to be reminded of Princess Diana
They both looked lovely and both wore the appropriate gowns for the country they visited. Stop comparing this is totally pointless and the left wing BBC trying to stir up trouble.
Why IS that a problem 🤔 keeping the memory of Diana's flame still glowing. Personally l think Kate looks STUNNING in whatever she wears. Well Done Kate I'm with you all the way 💕
Don't change at all 👍
Ok we all loved Princess Diana but it's high time the media stopped comparing her Daughter's in law to her as there is no comparison. It's good they have used her as a positive role model and continue with work she did but they are people with their own characters and aims. Leave them alone
Kate looked lovely but so thin. Unless she is naturally slim not a great message to give out especially as modelling agencies are being told not to have extremely thin models on their catwalk.
Sorry, but Princess Diana is much more beautiful and classy.
Kate is very pretty too but Diana is absolutely in a class of her own.
A woman who shows respect for her husband, love for her family, devotion and protection of her babies from conception is beautiful.
The feminine Duchess of Cambridge is therefore a beautiful woman in this sense, her outward appearance is lovely too.
By her example others will learn to love their unborn baby too preventing the slaughter of thousands of babies each day.🤰🏾❤️
It was a pleasure for Pakistan being with #PrincessKate. She definitely remembered us the movements which we spent with dearest and the most beautiful Princess of Wales she was much respectable the one and only Lady Diana😘😘😘.
Please remember that Kate and Dianna are different people. It's nice that she respects the memory of Dianna.
Pls don't remark anything against the elegant Duchess, her slowness put to shame many over weight ladies here. She has won us over with her elegance and grace. She has respected our culture and tradition and we appreciate it deeply.
Prince William in a beautiful Sherwani has bowled us completely.
Kate is an excellent royal ambassador for England in her own right so please stop comparing her every move to that of Diana..
THEY ARE NOT THE SAME OUTFITS STOP COMPARING THEM! Kate's gown was appropriate for the place she was visiting but it was a different colour and pattern and she looked stunning as ever.
I'm sick of people trying to compare Kate to Diana...stop!!!
Let Diana rest in peace and let Kate shine in her own way
Why the comparison?Why cant she be herself,wear what she wants? Let Diana rest in peace and let kate live her life as she pleases without scrutinizing everything she does,says and wears! Is this even news??
where is the comparison, she is wearing a blue salwar and Diana has on a blue printed one quite a difference... and even if she is sharing in her mother-in-law's style and passion, why not... Diana was always had a fashion statement and impeccably dressed... has BBC news nothing worthwhile to report!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No one can compare to Diana...the worlds MOST beloved Princess...not even Kate Middleton! Diana had charisma and charm that is rare and beautiful! There will never be anybody like Diana Spencer.. The Peoples Princess ever again.
She looks so elegant, so did the princess Diana. I’m sure she will make a perfect queen!
The only comparisons are by the media . RIP Diana and let Kate be herself ♥️
I am personally very happy that now that both princes are married, we can resurrect Diana by constantly comparing each of the wives to her.
The only resemblance that I see here is that both of them wear clothes. It is so tiresome and dull, let Diana really rest in peace - for good! 🙏
Everyone is unique in their own way, and both are more than gorgeous, But Princess Diana was too kind-hearted.
For goodness sake stop comparing them. Of course outfits are similar- they are both respecting the country they are in. Kate has grown into a lovely lady with her own views and what she likes. She is also a successful wife and mother very much in love with her husband as you can see from photos. Also unlike diana she has a degree in history of art so has done her time in education. So not so similar except for respecting the country she is in.
Must she always be compared to that dead woman? She & Diana Spencer never met & never will in this world. Just let the Duchess of Cambridge be her own unique self & individual.
My goodness, all this apologising to China, by profit-motivated co's.
That makes no sense. I live in Taiwan, where folks have free elections, free speech, and freedom of movement. Citizens of Taiwan don't have to sneak onto Facebook using a VPN like the Chinese do. People in China have a dictator and restricted rights. Taiwan is definitely a separate country, and a very good democracy at that. Chinese people carry a China passport, Taiwanese people carry a Taiwanese passport. Chinese enter Taiwan through the foreign entrance at the airport, not the citizen entrance.
There must be a reason why these days all the luxury brands apologise to China over anything
Dior had to apologise. Huge Chinese market!
But Taiwan was probably delighted!
We’re used to being missed off maps in New Zealand 😂
All this while I just thought that Taiwan is not part of China and they even had war with each other before. Or I read a different kind of history book, or I missed something from my history lesson before.
This is not the first time this year, I do believe these brands doing this on purpose
Is Taiwan not an independent country? I'm pretty sure that most of the world, with the exception of China, thinks so. I remember that during the Los Angeles Olympics the Americans bowed to the Chinese and referred to Taiwan as Chinese Taipei.
Days of Chiang Kai-shek are past. Island of Formosa has moved beyond limitations of China. In this day and age, do Taiwanese think of themselves as exiled Chinese?
It’s no error. There are plenty of reasons companies are willing to bow to China’s governments standards.
That’s why a child’s cartoon included dashes for the South China Sea, to support the narrative that China lays claim to ALL waters they want.
The map of Africa is usually shown without Madagascar...let alone Mauritius.
china will now use the power it gained from the wests destruction of its manufacturing to remove western freedoms where it can.
we must forget china and move away from their market to those who seek freedom and justice.
On the back of the map it says "made in Taiwan" 😂
China is really starting to show its true colours with Hong Kong building islands for military purposes the world needs to take action
They're apologising for stating the truth really ~ Taiwan is a democratic country which elects its president for a 4-year term. (No "emperor") Taiwanese people can freely criticise/comment on their politicians including the president without fear of being jailed. No political censorship on Google, social media like FB, all sorts of media, etc. It's a beautiful country where people enjoy their freedom. Welcome to visit this friendly country for yourselves.
Maybe BBC you may want to report on vietnam and philippines ban on the Dreamworks movie Abominable. There is a portion in the movie where it depicts china's territory that included the entire south china sea. If you check with UNCLOS, the south china sea doesnt belong to any one country yet.
Thought Taiwan was its own country.. why do the French have to apologise for anything!!!
Reminds me of South Park second episode "Band in China."
Sigh, why apologise? World still recognized taiwan as a separate state. Why do these big companies always have to apologise and knowtow to china's dictatorial leaders?
It is difficult to understand how a private business's take on things has any impact on world affairs.
Let there be NO mistake - Taiwan is not China any more than Finnland is Australia.
The best thing is simply not to do business with China.
China represents almost 30% of the global luxury market that's why they cannot afford to lose China..
If someone tried to take away my ability to feed my family my response would be the same I'm afraid
So targeting commuters who actually do something for the environment by using public transport instead of taking to the roads in cars is their method...Brilliant !
Sorry I thought we were all supposed to use public transport, to ease the impact on the Environment.
They should be brave, go to Knightsbridge and glue themselves on top of some Ferraris and Bentleys instead , not stopping people for going to work 🙄🙄
Kudos to commuters. They should not use what they see as their problems to disturb others. Some of the commuters may be on their way to important medical appointments. It's time to call the extinction rebellion to order.
Why dispute public transport. 🤔 Private Cars I can understand , but all forms of public transport are great for the environment. 🤔
These people should be jailed and if they are so determined about climate change- no heating, no electricity, no TV and made to stay outdoors and cook on open fire. I am all for saving the environment but they are going to far.
This is no longer a peaceful protest! It’s possibly endangering life ! And infringing on people’s lives !
Very well done to the commuters. Mesh with normal working peoples livelihoods and that is what happens.
Very interesting. The protesters will risk losing public sympathy and isolating themselves as a movement. The government of course is happy for them to do that and their rhetoric aligns with the public sympathy currently being low. When I see people calling these people lazy layabouts, they have completely misrepresented who they are and what they are doing and that if course is easy. Many people are stupid and quick to shoot from the hip in judging others. This however is the challenge for extinction rebellion. When the masses, rightly or wrongly, start making damming judgements then they lose their traction and their protest position. I think their tactics have been miguided and they could have disrupted the government more than the people to achieve their ends.
"Extinction Rebellion said the disruption was "necessary to highlight the emergency". no it was necessary to prove your stupidity and turn off people who might be sympathetic to your cause.
Good! about time the public stood up to this lot, they are causing people to lose their livelihoods 😃
Love it when the disgruntled commuters fight back....
This enviro shower are just trivialising and making a mockery of the whole thing
But I thought they wanted people to use public transport??? 🤔🤦♀️
Trust funds and inheritance leave people with waaaaay too much time on their hands.
Go and plant some trees or something?
Someone is trying their best to sabotage the good cause. We all can see a very familiar pattern and easily guess who's behind all of this.
Climate is important
So go and protest in a public
Park perhaps & do it peacefully please
Disrupting commuters journey to work is not fair , they are simple people trying to get to work and provide for their families , if a mother or father loses a job because of your dangerous protests how they will feed their family and how will that help climate change , can someone explain please ???
Well done to the commuters these eco warrior's should be put in the stocks
Public transport : the most economic way to travel 😆. Could have just started the trainni suppose, they would have moved.
Im fairly sure half these 'protestors' dont really care about the cause, they just enjoy causing chaos (a bit like many people that riot). Funny how they all seem to have so much time on their hands.
Im all for highlighting what we are doing to this planet, but i firmly believe this sort of behaviour achieves nothing, and is more likely to put the general public off being more proactive.
I do not condone violence of any kind, but this is getting beyond a joke. This is turning into a game not a protest. I hope people have pictures and have circulated the aftermath of these ‘climate friendly’ protests, I have never seen so much plastic rubbish in one place!
They are not going to get people on their side like this. Ordinary folk just trying to get to work to earn a living. I get why they are doing it but this achieves nothing but anger and trouble.
I am very much in support of the world’s governments changing legislation to help protect our planet. It is being destroyed and will not be around for our future generations. I compost, recycle, reuse, have gone vegetarian, use only eco friendly cleaning products. Making my own eco friendly wrapping paper. I try to grow my own veg, where possible I live my life in a way that does not negatively affect our planet. I have been doing this for as long as I can remember because I care about our planet, but what these protestors are doing is damaging to others who are trying to live their lives now, and it is doing the cause no good. In fact I would say their actions have a negative impact as they are turning public opinion against them.
Not much of a warrior for the environment being above the train,
I'd be impressed if he was underneath..
Well done to the commuters. People taking back control
For the latest on the Brexit talks as UK PM Boris Johnson heads to Brussels for a crunch EU summit: bbc.in/2VOj2Ma
Could Boris launch a vote of no confidence in himself?
It would be nice to win one vote as a Prime Minister before he goes down to a record as the shortest serving.
I hope he is going to apologise to Mrs May, for the way he lambasted her for not achieving Brexit, not as easy as he thought! 😂
This kinda proves how good May's deal was, and how much better it would be to remain.
Just give Arlene a couple of billion from the magical money tree and I'm sure she'll change her mind!
The BBC, why be positive when you can be endlessly negative.
Even when there's a chance of a deal they're still trying to spin it negatively. Last night Newsnight was a good example. Making up ideas and speculation.
You leave voters love Boris so much he's the man to get the job done. Yet even this morning Tories are still calling the DUP a valued partner. They have held the country to ransom for the life of this government. So dump the DUP.
Here we go again. Mr Johnson please get on with Brexit. I believe that you should do so on the basis that the result of the referendum gives you the mandate to do so! Everything else is just simply smoke 💨 and mirrors!
The year 2059: as a government, we promise to deliver brexit!
Never going to get a deal now just leave no deal and I voted remain election soon as poss let the people show you every body has had enought of this
Poor bloke has no chance, to many investors against him, not listening to the public vote
To be fair to the Tories advert on telly about :get ready for Brexit on the 31st of October '.... they didn't mention what year? 😂😂😂😂😂
Brexit sold initially as a binary choice.
Turns out it isn't.
"Oh! What A Tangled Web We Weave When First We Practice To Deceive"
The DUP and the other parties within their parliament in NI have not sat at Stormount for god knows how long because they cannot agree and cannot get on, yet they are holding all the cards when it comes to getting a Brexit deal done!!!!!
I'm not surprised with the new IRA post coming up .Ireland wants to keep peace this is just red rag to a bull .No hard boarder in Ireland.
Revoke now stop wasting time and causing stress to Ireland .Many people there remember the troubles and have no wish to revisit it
What ever deal is made with the EU, it can only be a bad deal for Britain. They will not allow us to undercut their business from tariff free goods from the rest of the world.
it's a win-win for Boris. He can either blame Arleen Foster or Parliament for a no-deal scenario and France will block an extension even if he has to request one under the Benn Act.
A border in the Irish Sea makes for a stronger case for a reunified Ireland. The DUP would no longer exist in a unified Ireland. This is about self preservation.
They’re just rejecting what the PM said in August "Under no circumstances will I allow any kind of division down the Irish Sea".
What was that PM’s name again?🤔
I honestly don't understand why the DUP are relevant to the Tory party anymore. Theresa propped up her government with millions spent on this "partnership" but now the government has a negative majority (-40 I read somewhere) so why are these 10 still holding an inept Tory party to ransom.
What a surprise, and didn't he himself once say that no respectable Prime Minister would support a Border in the Irish Sea? 😂
Boris could come back with the greatest deal ever and remain MPs would still vote against it.
It could be seen as a blow or it could be seen that the DUP are strengthening the bargaining position with the EU who know that Boris has to get a deal from them that can be passed in Westminster.
So Corbyn is a terrorist sympathiser but Boris is in alliance with the DUP (which have connections with the Ulster volunteer force!)
The hypocrisy of politics!
Stuff the DUP. This deal and May's were the best that could be got. So just go without a deal and all these muppets who blocked May and will undoubtedly block Johnson can go cry in their French Onion Soup
When I were a nipper, we didn't need to take things like this to school, rocks & bricks can be found almost anywhere 😉
This is so sad because the innocent ones will walk with a knife to protect themselves and that's the ferris wheel
Thank you to all the loving people who insisted on the removal of discipline from society.
The Government must step in ... its so shocking all these young lives wasted ... a disgrace to Britain .. what kind of mental state are these young ones in ... Torturous... that’s what... 🤬🤬🤬
The root cause: austerity meassures.
"The scourge of weapons has grown worse in recent years, and while there are a number of complex factors involved, a key issue has been cuts in policing and local support services for vulnerable families."
"Gangs have filled this vacuum and often pressure and groom young people into dealing drugs and carrying weapons," Mr Barton said.
From the age of 12 I had a pen knife, lots of kids growing up did. They were used entirely for what they were originally intended for. At 13 I had a full powered .22 Airgun, never once was it misused. Even when faced with an aggressor it never crossed our minds to use them. In my day if things got beyond words a fight may break out between 2 opponents. Nobody put the boot in, friends didn't jump in. It was dealt with in a manner where nobody even required medical treatment.
I took a knife to school for forever from elementary through college.
Why ain't the parents checking their kids pockets and bags before they leave the house, I could always tell my child was taking some thing to school they shouldn't be, by the way they acted, no way am I the perfect parent and have made mistakes but always knew some thing was a miss, usually it was a toy.
So what kind of parents are allowing this to happen?????
Surely parental education can make a huge difference here. My son owned a small personalised penknife from an early age, its part of his camping kit and he uses it correctly for repairs, stove preparation, opening food packets etc. It’s been taught to him that it’s a necessary tool not a weapon and as a result he wouldn’t dream of carrying it in a place where it’s not appropriate because of the implications.
Blade are all around us in this manner and I think it’s important to expose children to their proper uses, capabilities and acceptable safe handling, as they’re less likely to grow up seeing everything sharp and pointy as a glamorous weapon.
If the school does not handle it well, I think that no parents would send their children to school to learn this offense
What a wonderful country its turned out to be.
I reported to my son's school that my son had been threatened with a knife. They assured me that it was a 'cultural issue' that they were holding meetings about (🙄). I contacted the police who brought in a metal detector and they confiscated 98 weapons from 64 pupils and 9 arrests. I regret nothing!
Kitchen knives seem to be quite popular.
I would be interested to see how many carrying weapons have been the victims of bullies, repeatedly failed by their school / police and felt they had no other choice but to defend themselves.
Bad Parenting and the social service is the problem. Parents can’t discipline their children anymore and social service has no alternative. The source of the problem is clear as day
There's only one solution, give teachers swords.
England and Wales. We need to get out of the union before it starts happening up here
This is the side effects of the computer games and the movies the kids watch. Game creators and the parents should take full responsibility.
If this is in the US, politicians will require teachers to bring knives and tasers as well.
Because we're not allowed to discipline our children, so it's now social media and Hollywood raising them. At the end of the day it's a horror movie in reality
Remove the internet and the tv from the children and stop leaving the internet to raise your children, stuff like this wasnt happening before the internet was in everyones home and in everyones hands at all times.
Jake Murphy Heh this is nothing.
On my first day of school, we were made to have a show and tell. Little Mike brought in double knuckle dusters, while Rebecca had a cane knife hidden in her backpack.
I was made to go last, and unfortunately my Walter PPK was frowned upon by the other children; "melee weapons only next time"! I told myself as I scuttled off home that afternoon, whilst twirling around Thomas' throwing stars as I headed out the gates.
Ah I miss being a kid, man.
Change O’ Times
When I was in Primary 1, my school bag was filled with Matchbox cars and me naan‘s body massager.
Here in Canada, a 14-year-old was stabbed to death last week in front of his mother. A 14- and 18-year-old have been charged with 1st degree murder.
We pay nearly £500 per month for a student house in Leeds. There are 9 bedrooms in the house and everyone pays for 12 months of the year. £54k per annum rent for 9 students. Kerching landlord.
Oh Sue hope all is well in Leeds. 💜
Until I lost my Job I used to pay £850 a month in rent alone for a single bedroom groundfloor flat in East Grinstead. Now I'm on the south coast I would pay two thirds of that for two bedrooms.

leeds,bristolcity and nothtingham are our favorate footballteam!does it ve any impact on rent?
Glad the us has great housing programs to get in a house with no down payment.
Ahoy, robin of loxlie! 😂
£650 a month for one bed Flat in Portland, Dorset. That's one of the Cheapest.
Interestingly though it also says in the beginning of the article that more people are buying their first home which relieves pressure on the rental market. So people are managing to buy their first home.
You can literally get a 3 bed house with a downstairs toilet for £450/500 a month where I live in Wigan 🙄
Just wait for Brexit to happen...will see then how cheap will be the rent 🙄🙄🙄🙄[i'm tottaly ironic]
If you want to discuss rent increases, look at the South East. Then we're talk...
I love England country so much I want to go help someone
In other words we are looking at people no longer being able to afford to live in major UK cities
Inflation ✌️✌️ Congratulations UK .There is many homeless in the streets of London
Tata (India )is the biggest job provider in the Britain but without colonizing your country
I guess your so called aid is more important for the citizens of UK and the UK no longer gives any money to India cos India is the 6th largest economy now .
I hope tata will provide some more aid to UK 😀✌️
Stolen diamond from India and embedded into queen Elizabeth || crown😂
What a shameless queen
This means that the central U.K. Cities is becoming a prime real estate property!👍
Can you please improve your website go actually include links to the articles you’re reporting on?
That's because nobody wants to live in Aberdeen 😂😂😂😂
Amber Abby apparently rent in Nottingham is on the rise, explains increase in rent
Denver. 1750 for a two bedroom, 1300 for a one. Lolol. I'd rather live there.
Try living in Lisbon where the minimum wage it's 600e and rents are 800e up.
People need to understand the difference between a hoax and a false flag. Yes the shooting definitely happened; also yes, persons let it happen in the attempt to convince Americans to sacrifice their rights for a sense of security.
I can’t be happy about the reason for the story but I am grateful for the settlement because I hope that means people who want to lie in public will stop and think about the consequences particularly if they’re going to cost them money.
I listened to a podcast about this and everything this poor dad has gone through with these conspiracy theorists. Good for him, should have been far more.
So glad they’re getting a small piece of justice. Alex Jones, you’re next!
Good. As my old aunt, an attorney used to say, "Leave him with nothing but the and & the or." In other words make this worthless meat sack pay with everything.
I know it will never ever make up for losing his son, but I thank him and the rest of his family for standing up. It could not have been easy.
I wish it could be more. Until some of these people actually feel the same pain of loss will they totally understand. No empathy. Sad world we live in.
It was a despicable and low thing to say, Especially as there were grieving parents involved, They richly deserve the fine in fact I’d have given them such a huge fine that it would break them, I’d fine all of these conspiracy nut jobs that say “it was a hoax” “they were actors” “ it was a false flag” and all the other nonsense that is said about these atrocities.
Although some form of “justice” was served in terms of the false statements made, it is high time that Americans realize what a high price many of them pay for this sacrosanct “right” to bear arms!🤬
Every time I see Noahs beautiful face it tears me up.
No amount of money is ever enough for this family or any family who loses their child from gun violence.
We all must do better as a society to stop these killings.
Wonderful news a victory for good people harmed by these false conspiracies
He’s *obligated* to pay (although he has said he’ll appeal), but I will be very surprised if he *actually* pays.
When you use your "Freedom of Speech" for the wrong things!
Good. The parents of the children killed experienced overwhelming grief. It was made so much worse by awful people who said it never happened.
Good! You make hurtful stuff up about such a horrific event you deserve to pay.
What a heart breaking trauma to endure.
Every one of those that push and profit from these baseless and deeply damaging lies needs to be held accountable
Good. Make all those idiots pay. Rush limbaugh, alex jones, etc.... its past time for idiots to be held accountable for the crap that spews out of their mouths, esp when they somehow managed to get themselves in a position to influence an audience....
Peace be with these parents. I can't imagine losing a young child and on top of that being harassed by lunatic people. I do think of the parents and wish them peace. Im sorry you have to go thru this! This is a little justice.
So happy about this story. Cannot get your child back but what they did to this family was unthinkable.
Such a sweet face. His family having this in their face because of idiots that want to be tough? I only hope they will collect and be allowed to grieve again in peace.
Good luck ever collecting, of course, but the decision at least is the best you could hope for under the circumstances.
Could the lawsuits be a hoax for Alex Jones and other alt right nutcases to gain sympathy from their followers, making them think they are under attack, thus leading to increased sales of the survivalist goods they hock on their websites aaaaand shows? Hey I'm just asking questions here... follow the money.
Lies and falsehoods are very destructive,I am glad the family pursued this even if no money is ever paid out.
It's hard to believe it was 8 years ago. I felt so sad for the families and those poor little toddlers.
