"The blame for that, however, cannot be laid on the door of Mr Johnson. During the Minsk talks, General Sir Richard Shirreff, the former deputy commander of Nato, claimed Britain has been sidelined in the worst crisis in Europe in a half-century. “Where is Britain? Where is Cameron? He is clearly a bit part player. Nobody is taking any notice of him. He is now a foreign policy irrelevance,” charged General Shirreff."

Meanwhile, in f*cknugget central, the place of birth and birth certificate of Barack Obama is apparently newsworthy.

Why is this newsworthy? Why isn't it just it just greeted with a shrug of the shoulders and a "so what, you small minded c*nt?"?

Nah. He'd film himself on a bus sitting on the floor as a response. That'll put the wind up them. Not only do we have seats on trains sometimes we also have them on buses. But jezza still sits on the floor. Bit like Jesus really. (Cept Jesus didn't throw a hissy fit on YouTube cos he couldn't sit with his missus).

All of which might be preferable to blair and bush's war in Iraq... but maybe you think that was ace and well 'ard of us!

Can someone remind me what the action was that we took against the IRA that was double the force and either changed minds or stopped terror?

Theres some reet shit chatted on here without any reference being made to what actually makes things better for us.

If Martin McGuiness sat smiling in the NI assembley is the price to pay for no killing, then I choose that price over any other every time. If you'd prefer to choose never ending one-upmanship through death and destruction, more fool you.

I think they are suggesting that responding to terror with a well 'ard gesture is the answer... like... errr... Bloody Sunday - or summat... or the war in Iraq... or shoot-to-kill in Gibralter... maybe... errr...

So in a poll done by yougov 56% of Corbyn supporters within the LP think he will win the next general election as Labour leader. This is the delusion we are dealing with. I'd bet them all personally my entire worth he won't. I'd be a multi millionaire for sure.

Jezza, on the subject of peace and disarmament today put forward the following self-observation ".... I've spent my life opposing things ....".

Yep. We know. I suspect that will continue for some time.
Not advocating mass-murder as an entirely positive experience, of course, but it had its moments.
"I understand you are a very good footballer" ... "I try".

I think that was a debate about trident... are you a trident fan, Bobo? is that how you'd like us to spend a giant wodge of cash?

I see... I guess you'd want us to press Theresa's big red button... or go to war in Iraq... or bomb Syria... or summat... yeah! :oyea:
What a stupid response

I haven't put myself into a position where I could be expected to make that choice.

Do you think he'd have the attitude that we had it coming?

you said it was hypothetical!! what WOULD you do in the hypothetical scenario that you proposed? what do you mean by "pay back with double the force"? :conf:

I don;t know what I'd do. I'm not a party leader. And you know exactly what double the force would mean. Bush / Blair etc. Why are you such an obnoxious nice person?

right... i see... so you're having a go at Corbyn for what you imagine his response to your hypothetical scenario would be without being prepared to say what you'd do...

genius! :oyea:

she doesn't. I suspect boris is parroting Trump. Hilary voted for measures that included 700miles of fencing about 10yrs ago... apparently that's the same as a 2000mile wall...
