  • Comment on: Could the SNP effectively block a Conservative-led government?

    ian harris's comment | Wed, 25 Mar 2015 2:03 pm

    It would be outrageous if the SNP tried to block an elected conservative governement. This would be the Midlothian question with knobs on. We know the SNP want independencre and they will provoke the English until they get it: and maybe it;'s time to say good riddance to this extreme Left, anti-British country and let them stew in their own juice. Any Scot who's any good will leave for England, as the brighter ones have done for generations.

  • Comment on: Leaving the EU could cost the British economy £56bn a year, think tank warns

    these frighteners assume that we won't continue trading mutually with the EU on similar terms to now. As they sell us more than we sell them, they are n't going to jeopardize that.Yes, we may continue to need immigrants, but they will be the ones we need, not the ones we can't refuse.We would save fortunes with a lot of EU regulations, without subsidizing them over the CAP and fiusheries. Most importantly, we would regain our independence, be able to deport rapists, murderers and hate preachers, free ouselves from the threat of EU taking over our legal system. Even if we have a couple of poorer years, ultimately it will be well worth it. Europe is sclerotic, inward looking and undemocratic. It can only get worse.

  • Comment on: Unconvincing and expensive – Lords reject economic case for HS2

    Agree. This is madness; and we know it will end up costing far more than estimated, and take longer. This huge amount of money could be better spent upgrading and adding to existing lines.

  • Comment on: Tony Blair to be “eased out” of role as Middle East peace envoy

    ian harris's comment | Mon, 16 Mar 2015 1:29 pm

    Blair's role as Middle East peace envoy has been a bad joke from day one, considering that most of the problems there date from his and Bush's Iraq war. But he has no shame.

  • Comment on: Nigel Farage reckons children of immigrants shouldn’t be allowed to go to school for five years

    the wholebusiness of allowing dependants has increased problems with schools and NHS. UK is attractive not only for its job opportunities, but also because English is the second language of many europeans and immigrants from elsewhere. Many of these are relatively low-skilled, or employed in low-skill jobs, if at all. UK ex-pats working abroad are generally high-skilled, and working in an English language environment, apart from the elderly retiring to the sun, who are mostly self-supporting.
