That's Bolton :facepalm:

Guess if lying constantly about everything, big and small, works for Trump, maybe it'll work over here too.

See a UKIP member/supporter should be hacked off that their leader has lied to them.

I'd be livid with him as the leader so far.  If a UKIP supporter obviously.  But like a lot of Corbyn (and even Trump) supporters, they've probably got bunker mentality now.  And will defend anything and everything to the point of insanity.

Seems that things started to implode the first time Farage resigned, they did have a few competent speakers but they fell foul of Nigel and have been binned. This Nuttal guy isn't going to do anything and they still have nothing outside of the EU debate, unless something dramatically changes there I expect they'll die off.

The leave vote should really be the death knell for them.

Most people who voted for Brexit mainly did so because it sounds a bit like breakfast, and breakfast is a nice thing.

Families await supreme court verdict on income rules for spouse visas

So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Sleep now in the fire

Qualified the first time but could do without the restrictions for applications 2 and 3. Would make life considerably easier.

It is simply any way to keep the numbers down. Although I wouldn't say 18k is a disgustingly high figure either.

41% of British people currently earn less than that threshold. It's a harsh rule which the court has acknowledged but the judgement seems sound.
