    You just know Rees Mogg was always the one to suggest playing soggy biscuit in the dorms.

    I still find it hard to believe that Rees Mogg is a real person. He looks and talks like a caricature.

    How is Osborne going to find time to edit the Standard between his 4 days a month advising BlackRock for 680,000pa and whatever it is he does for his constituents for the ~100,000 MP salary?

    Do you know how you get older you are supposed to get more right right wing? I think that is probably correct. I detest Rees Mogg for his opinions and talking about things like he has insight that we can relate to. Then I think of what a cock his father was, and cannot blame him for not breaking out of his bubble to improve himself. He is the posh version of someone living on JSA. It is just he has a bigger platform to opine his banal views on those he cannot relate to.

    Just watching the French debate, Le Pen sounds so much like Trump it's ridiculous, she's also devoid of charm and dislikable. I hope to god she gets pumped.

    And of course, inflation is up. Won't be long before we all start to feel it. :-/

    Supposedly the ban is to stop laptop bombs but the laptops are just put in the hold so that's probably bullshit. It looks like harassment aimed at Muslims.

    @Dougs

    Inflation has been pretty apparent in our shopping bills since before Xmas.

    I don't know if there is a delay in the official figures, or if the numbers are being surpressed for fear of being branded traitorous by the Daily Mail, or what.

    But prices have definately been sneaking up... 😟

    It's obviously sucking up to the self-imploding moron in the US, great idea.

    Unless ofc there is specific information about the trigger mechanism, in that it requires human interaction.

    Edit: And as for inflation, we have been living a very low inflation state for quite a while.

    Do we think jihadis are too stupid to book their flight with a different airline? Or get one flight to London then a forwarding flight to USA on one that's not banned?

    Fucking ridiculous pandering policies designed to appeal to idiot supporters than actually protect anyone, bunch of cunts happy to further divide humanity for their own little benefits. I'd shoot the lot of them

    @RelaxedMikki the Tories use use the Consumer Price Index as their preferred measure of inflation. CPI is more favourable (ie tacks lower as a measure) than the Retail Price Index.

    This is it, bomb in the cargo hold still does the same thing.

    Surely carry on luggage is subject to greater scrutiny than the big bags? Just seems like a really offensive policy which labels entire countries as potential terrorists.

    America, where you can buy as many automatic weapons as you please. Even if you have serious mental health issues.

    But fuck taking an iPad on a flight.

    The Labour Party's row with Unite is staggeringly stupid.

    The Party is terrified of unions and its own membership. It's pathetic.

    @RelaxedMikki yep, same here. To the point that we now, errm, use the pikey German supermarkets a lot. (some stuff is fantastic, some is good some not so much). Made a huge difference to us, probably a good few hundred quid a month.

    @Dougs i find if you buy mostly fresh they are fine. Its the canned stuff that gets a bit ropey. The only thing i dislike is the queues for the checkouts, it actually puts me off going there.

    Fresh is generally pretty great, including dairy, meat etc. Booze is good too. And you can't knock buying random tat from the middle aisle. Overall quite happy though, just supplement with some of the branded stuff that really is worth it (Digestive biscuits and Weetabix especially!)
