    Wish Rashford would highlight absent fathers and educate parents about birth control.
    A long time ago me and Mrs R decided our income made it clear we couldn't afford to have more than our 2 children.
    For me, a lot out there think everybody else should pay for their children.

    Couldn't agree more. Does my head in too.

    That said, it's not the kids fault for being born.

    Firstly don't ever call me a liar again and then alter because you got it wrong.

    It's not finally there, it has been there one page 1 of the BBC news website ever since the story broke.

    May I suggest a trip to specsavers?

    I have no idea what your link is, in the lead up to the commons vote, the BBC website ran.

    15th Oct - 3 stories.
    16th Oct - 2 stories.
    17th Oct - 1 story.
    20th Oct -1 story.
    21st Oct - 2 stories.

    Since the vote.

    22nd Oct - 7 stories.
    23rd Oct - So far 17 stories.

    I would say that is plastered.

    But carry on with your childish and ignorant insults, as I said to you before, it seems to be the way these days.

    You put your original post up at 1056 this morning and I replied within 15 minutes and it was on the first page then and still was just now, it has been on the first page since 15th October, of course being occasionally being demoted as new stories come in (that is how news websites work).

    You really need to grow up.

    I have never called myself hard, but have done stuff in my working life that many people would **** their pants about having to do and I am not a liar and will not be called that especially by you. Throughout this exchange I have not personally insulted you once but as usual you just cannot stop yourself.

    Measures were being drawn up, the current furlough scheme has not yet finished.....I believe another 9 days to go.....It's late but we are lucky in this Country to have so many bloody hand outs......Having said that, we need to come away from all these bloody lockdowns and get on with it with precautions and current distancing measures etc in place....All these tests coming back positive but very few admissions and very few deaths.....and if you tell me our hospitals are getting full, then name me a year when they weren't.
    No beds, treating patients in corridors and in ambulances, not enough doctors & nurses, full to the brim is what we've had for at least the past 20 years!!

    The link I've posted is a cut of the website from that day. The link was not on that page, not on the night of the commons vote, nor the next day. No matter how much you claim it was, what I posted is proof that it wasn't. If you want to be insulted by the word 'liar', that's fine, but what you posted was factually untrue. It was not on the BBC website when you claimed it was, even though you said it was 'plastered'.

    It doesn't matter anyways. As @oneforthebristolcity says, it's being plastered now. I really wasn't wrong on this occasion though, it was a big story straight away and it's only now they actually have to write about it that they have finally done so.

    The BBC news website changes by the minute/hour, that is the obvious nature of the beast, you first posted that the BBC didn't have it on their news website and I found your post 15 minutes later and then found the story straight away was there on the front page (check the timeline), all you posted was a snapshot of what was there when you looked. As new stories evolve older stories are pushed further down until they end up on page 2 and beyond.

    What I posted was factually true for the moment I found it and posted it, I am not a liar, it was there even before the vote, the amount of time it stays on page one is down to the BBC and the amount of new news stories, that's how it works.

    There are multiple cuts of the homepage available on that website every day. Like 10+. It's not on any of them. But that's fine, let's leave it there.

    But was 15 minutes after your very first post on the subject, as I said check the timeline.

    Dan Walker accused Eustace, a government minister, of a government policy failure on Migration.
    It's beyond terrible to hear of more deaths in the Channel but only the BBC could say its 'our' policy failure.
    Unbelievable.

    Rarely listen to the bias they bleat anymore but who is the arsehole Dan Walker and is he relevant?

    As far as I know, he's widely criticised for not being hard enough on politicians when they come onto BBC Breakfast and for giving the government an easy time.

    Of course that goes against the narrative here but it's pretty true.

    Perhaps the narrative in this case should be the complete failure of the beloved EU and especially France over the issue of migrants/asylum seekers in the first place?

    Double tragedy why are they coming here? BBC are nearly silent on what is going on with France over terrorism. Hundreds killed in years by radical islamists.

    It is a tragedy indeed and one of the EU's making and once more fuelled by the then labour party. Who by their own admission was actively looking to increase the UK's migrant population for political ends.

    I moved to France in 2002 and the mayor of Sangat (where the migrant camp was) said "the UK government needs to understand why all of these migrants cross multiple borders of safe havens with only one intention and that is to go to the UK".

    Well I know, it's patently obvious.

    EDIT: Ignore me. Thought you were referring to the terrorist attack this morning, and I was about to point out that it's the top story. Then I realised you posted this yesterday. My mistake, apologies.
