Corbyn adviser claims 'deep state' could be working to undermine new Labour government

They have been after Corbyn since ''Day One''. 
All engineered.

Here is Galloway dated 29th April 2016, from two years ago, talking about the Livingstone case - stating there was a ‘slow-motion’ coup underway and Livingstone was not the real target - Corbyn was.

At 3.03s, Galloway says: “You see if I’m right”
You were right alright George. You were spot-on.

Had news this morning from the House of Commons Library - The Future of Sanctions [https://researchbriefings.parliament.uk/...y/CBP-8402]

Apperently there is going to be some kind of war on Mondays. To a degree I might welcome this, Mondays not being my favorite day. But an official sanction? Who would have thought it.

=======

With a new legal basis on the statute books in the form of the Sanctions and Anti-Monday Laundering Act 2018, the UK enters a new era in sanctions policy, or at least it will when the powers to create sanctions regulations come into force, something that will happen when the Government decides.

LOL - Excellent, now they just need to Sanction Tues through to Friday, and support the growth of unions for Weekends.

Tory conference data breach

Conservative Party accidentally leak MPs' and journalists' phone numbers through its conference app
Social media users claimed they had logged in as Boris Johnson, gaining access to the ex-foreign secretary's phone number

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/po...61056.html

The Tory conference has not yet started, yet the letters are already falling off, figuratively speaking.  Big Grin 

Just a quick historical reminder:

On a more serious side, as an EU27 citizen I strongly object to the EU giving any personal data to the incompetent snooping UK after Brexit.

Breaking news:

Queen's husband was involved in a car crash - and he was behind the driving wheel:

Prince Philip unhurt in crash while driving (17 Jan 2019)
https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-46912691

Where the hell did he get a valid driving licence? I mean, he is 97 and looking rather frail. If he were my grandfather, I would not allow him anywhere close to driving a car (even if unlike queen's family we do not have enough money to employ chauffeurs).

Oh, I forgot - in the splendid UK class society the rules for the public-money-sucking klepto-elites are different to the rules for the plebs.

Here is a message on Twitter from an UNelected member of the British parliament = Lord Spiritual Archbishop of York John Sentamu about the 'incident' involving the super-privileged husband of the UNelected head of state:

What an archaic farce of a country.

I don't think one should generally ban older drivers (well apart from the old dears who tootle along at 35 km/h on a 70 km/h road and get in my way of course  Big Grin ) but I do think they should be tested on a regular basis. This might be considered ageist however diminishing faculties are a fact of life and I think protection is necessary. If ageism is a concern test all drivers - it won't hurt younger drivers and might even help pin-point issues they were not aware of like needing glasses o the like.

I had to laugh at the president of the AA's statement in the BBC article though. He said:'Young, predominantly male, drivers are much more likely to crash within six months of passing their test than older drivers within six months of hanging up their keys.' If the older driver has hung his keys up what is he supposed to cause an accident with? His Stena Stair-Lift?  Big Grin

Also - I understand that one may feel in need of a stiff drink after a shock but to have an Archbishop pray to God to 'Endue him with thy Holy Spirit' (see tweet) is ott. I'm sure the Prince can lay his hands on a tipple without heavenly assistance! It might have been more to the point to spare a thought and a prayer for those injured in the crash. 

Finally: am I the only one who thinks it's 'strange' that not a lot is said about whose fault the accident was? They wouldn't be 'respecting their betters' would they? Surely not.... Angel

They have already explained - it was due to sun glare... They did however also say that the male driver was turning from the side road (with a stop sign) to the main road.

Agree with you - elderly drivers should be regularly properly tested.

Been there, done that. Do I get the T-Shirt now? Big Grin

Seriously - thanks for the voting opportunity. I was starting to feel quite 'left out' with all the talk here about who's going to vote what in the EU elections (thanks again UK - so glad to see you're keeping your promise of 'nothing changing'!).
