A8,
Has Boris asked you to join the war cabinet to deal with Iran?
He has such a good record in dealing with Iran and choosing his words carefully

You should try living down there. Twice a year you'd get 1-2 weeks where your daily train commute to and from Exeter could be halted outside Dawlish, waiting for the worst of the waves to stop crashing over the train and tracks.

p.s. do NOT diss the genius of IK Brunel.

It's about building capacity too.

Better rail services to Cornwall would be great.

Only in Britain would we make it so the only train line that connects to one of the rainiest parts of the country runs under a sheer cliff and literally a fucking meter away from the fucking sea.

It's a total vanity project. There are dozens of other, less glamorous rail projects that could be completed for much less money and reap far more tangible benefits for the country.

Commuter routes could be quadruple tracked, closed routes re-opened to provide alternative paths between places (Oxford-Cambridge being but one example. the old Grand Central another).

What, apart from the earth used to build the embankments is actually British in the whole thing?

Last year, in Russia, the tyrannical dictatorship of Putin arrested 400 people for things they said on social media.

This is terrible.

HS2 = even more trains for gavvy to spot.

Bet he can't fucking wait; flask of weak lemon drink and Dairylea sandwiches already prepared, I suspect.

We have to continually improve but it’s when costs continually rise far beyond the final expectation

Just because some people question the validity of government projects doesn't automatically make them items of 'mad Kipper thing of hate'.

As if you'd know anything about it anyway....

Ah yes, HS2, that other mad Kipper thing of hate.

0.28% is 0.28%. Plug that gap then move onto the next. Don't bother with trying to rank the outgoings in order, all the time you're doing that, more and more haemorrhages out of the UK economy.

We CAN stop the money going to the EU. THEN we can look at other potential savings - Foreign Aid budget, for instance, or HS2.

True but isn't that down to uncontrolled immigration resulting in huge increases in childbirth rates. Labour want more immigration don't they?

Well you're not wrong there. The trouble is memories are short as to how UK got to that point where the economy needed austerity. The Tories definitely carried it too far though.

Unfortunately, when you elect politically correct, pen pushers as leaders you get teh kind of unimaginative and poor leadership you've had.

Perhaps the time is right for a change but an antisemite, pro-terrorist, Marxist that faces a possible vote of no confisence from Labour peers could be the answer I suppose...

"record expenditure to the NHS, Education and care programmes"

That's inflation for you.
When it comes to education spend per pupil is the better measure and that is not at record levels at all.

It occured to me the other day that in France and Hong Kong the people protest about holding onto their democracy. In UK they protest about wanting to give it up....just saying!

Re: EU Referendum 23rd June 2016 declares Cameron
Record expenditure but spent so badly, two weeks doc appointments, pension freezing, London ghettos, less police, poor education, poor management, foreign owned utilities, high rents, low house building, overpriced housing,,, I could go on and a large section of people that just don’t give a shit because the people in power dont

I'm not a Tory but what you wrote there is just plain wrong. You have virtually full employment, rising wages now that east European migrants are reducing, record expenditure to the NHS, Education and care programmes are at record levels and yes, the Tories are cunts and prone to give tax cuts to high earners but they also give tax reductions to low earners.

as I say, I hope Labour do get in because I hope there will be a rush to buy houses in France where taxes are much cheaper which goes against conventional wisdom. It's true though because as an EU pensioner we escape the French social charges which are almost as much as taxes...

I appreciate it must be tough to treat the net contributions as an opportunity to participate in all the opportunities the EU offers if you elect representatives like Nigel Farage and Anne Widdecombe to the EP.
