  1. So a litigious American, is not ‘all politicians or celebrity accused falsely as part of Yew Tree, getting compensation’. Grasping.
  2. It turns out that this case (when checking other sources such as legal and human news boards, Leighday where Swaine is a partner), shows her compensation case was due to the CPS not taking a case to trial, in 2010. The person involved was not a celebrity and was a case of abuse at a college. So why have you linked her compensation case to celebrities. So that it fits into your notion, that the CPS is falsely prosecuting celebrities as part of operation YewTree? 2+2 still doesn’t equal 10
  3. That’s an opinion piece not policy and it’s a paywalled article. So really can’t corroborate your claim
  4. The original conviction was upheld. The legal team our considering their options for High Court appeal

    I’d suggest wisdom of the experts is where it’s at, qualified bonafide ones. Not you or I or kids.

    That’s where you are going wrong, it seems - you put to much stock in the wisdom of children.

    Indeed. It was her point exactly. That it was so easy that it should be implemented by now. And it hadn’t, because it isn’t. Boris could only squirm out of that one with a dig at her with a German word used at the time of Germany letting refugees in called, ‘we can do it’. The. clock is ticking, 30 days, can you get the tech for the border up and working in 30 days Boris, rather than just talk about it ad-infinitum? Think we all know the answer to that one.

    It does actually. Rather than suffer fools gladly and all that, just don’t hold stock in proponents of laughing face brigades’s useless opinions

    That line will be very useful in a few years time, in the back pocket should the following eventuate: The Union dissolved, economy dire, the poor worse off, England on its own. No Queen or monarchy It would be apt to remember that ‘ Brexit was the people’s choice. Get over it.’

    The only ones I’ve seen banged on about is SJWs which is a moronic label for common decency and things that Brits already have such as the NHS, the dole, education, equality in the eyes of the law etc. etc. Not really about Brexit is it. Most of this pre dated the EU. Or I’ve missed the Brexit specific posts, about how a Canadian benefits.

    Whilst they have found money on the Austerity magic money tree to evolve ‘Project Fear’ into ‘Project Reality’, it still doesn’t mean it’s a good decision. It is what it is and he is making the noises and making a good go of going through the motions, we shall see what will really happen on Halloween night and the days, months and years after. It’s not over till the fat lady sings, and that is still a long way off.
  12. You do come up with a load of BS don’t you? 2+2 does not equal 10. Please provide the proof about the CPS having to pay out for false allegations and prosecutions ? Not reports claiming ‘may have to pay’ (if they even exist) but actually ‘have paid’. In the case of Cliff Richard it was the BBC that paid out for privacy breaches for the ‘Hollywood style circus’ of reporting that they undertook at the time, when Sir Cliff was being investigated on allegations. In the case of the MPs (please name which ones were being investigated - the actual paper article please). It looks like the person was not reliable and had specific issues hence these nameless politicians were absolved. In the case of Pell, the judges have not found the accuser to be unreliable - twice. Either way in these UK cases I hope it doesn’t turn out to be like Jimmy Savillle - decades of wrong doing finally brought to light, after the powerful have lost their power to silence victims.

    A bit like not mentioning the war to Germans then. Ok. Best not.

    I’m ignoring your woeful spokesperson ship, for someone who clearly can’t speak for themselves or has no rationale for their choice. It’s time to stop singing the theme tune. It has changed. We are leaving the UK, it’s now the devil in the detail, that is (and always was) the sticking point. Even the PM has put in plans to mitigate a no- deal outcome. What you loving call Project Fear is now preparation for Project Reality, even the PM knows it. Everyone including the EU is preparing for it. The greater risk is the back-stop. Planning for that is woeful as it is an ideological issue. Hence the devil in the detail. So its time ‘Brexiteers’ changed the theme tune.

    Yes, but those are all British arguments irrespective of which side of the fence one sits on with respect to them. British people voted on the matter, yay or nay. I’m interested in what motivates a Canadian, what’s personally in it for them, in the UK Brexiting (or not)? Presumably they didn’t vote yay or nay.
