    like Greta, a true inspiration, has done so much in such a short timespan, wonder why so middle aged men have a dig at someone who is only trying to raise awareness for a scientific fact, don’t people care about the environment for future generations of their families?

    What do you know? The pound is getting stronger and we were told it would get worse. Another myth busted. <wah>

    It’s improved so much you’re cheering it being worse than a year ago. Markets factor in the probabilities of massive shocks like leaving the EU without a deal. Achieving some vague deal albeit what has proved to be a demonstrably poor one is an improvement on that. You could have celebrated a huge uplift in the pound if we’d just sacked off Brexit altogether.

    funny your comments have changed a bit. I seem to remember you bitching about the pound when it went down... now its got stronger, you bitch? you are sounding like a spoilt brat with every post Watford. Try and smile and enjoy things a bit more. You would be great fun to be stuck with at a party! <doh>

    I’m not bitching. You’re the one getting excited over it being up over a week or month. The long term trend remains poor and clearly poorer than it would be without Brexit.

    All of it really comes back to you constantly trying to scrape some sort of win where there is none.

    Fortunately I’m doing well btw. I just have enough of a conscience to care about those who can’t afford to have life get a bit harder.

    Longshanks was a ruthless son of a bitch, no doubt about it.

    Not when you post utter rubbish.
    1. it's okay for you to point score in just about everything anti British post of yours. But when there is some good news which there is, you bitch. As it happens I was not trying to point score as I wouldn't use currency to do so. However the pound is getting stronger... if you think different then you are a stupid 2222.
    2. As for caring about people? Do you know what I have been doing in my spare time of late? No you don't, so don't play the 'caring card' when people like me are helping others out without all the fanfare.
    As for leaving the EU... I wish we had done it years ago. Just take a look at them in the past 3 weeks. Mickey Mouse organisation that is falling to bits.

    I dont really know if she's amazing or not. People form opinions, publish those opinions and hey presto....she's a witch! To be honest, I've never cared for the royal family, load of tosh if you ask me. I didnt mind Diana until they killed her off!

    Not a rant mate just pointing out that the pound is strong and I do care about people who need help.
    Anyway we are talking monarchs now.

    Wasn't it he who said "The only problem with Scotland is it's full of Scots"? Nothing's changed... ;)

    The Kranky has pulled another fast one and got in before Boris on schools again but the EU has rejected calls to readmit Scotland to the Erasmus scheme.
    Ursula von der Leyen said "The entire UK must rejoin the student exchange program for the devolved nations to participate".

    That's a couple of weeks old that news about schools reopening for Primary kids in P1 to P3 up here, so hardly pulling a fast one.

    Richard II for me really. Spent 12 months studying him and writing about some fairly niche bits of his reign, so maybe some sort of Stockholm syndrome.
