Anyone who appears to believe that the Prime Minister is responsible for the level of rain falling from the sky probably isn't too well
The Tories have been in power, one way or another, for ten years now.

Many folks are getting flooded out for the second or third time in a relatively short period of time.

But Boris is more interested in fantasy projects like a bridge between Scotland and Northern Ireland.

 Questions need to be asked about the grants and loans they received.  Were audits carried out, if not, why not, and if they were, why did they not pick up that the business was bent.   Laws need to be tightened on Pensions investment rules.

:lol :lol :lol VNA I swear to god, if you weren't on this forum, youd stand at home in front of a mirror arguing with yourself until you got so angry you punched yourself in the face ;) ;)

Like I say to suggest that the BBC are guilty of persecuting Ms Flack is ridiculous, unless that is you can produce evidence to the contrary Ogri.
 
Meanwhile a great many are stating how they find the bullying, muck racking and persecution of individuals by the tabloid press disgusting.  But then the next morning they buy another copy of the Sun, Mail, Express etc.


The fact is there is massive demand for the shite that these shitty so-called newspapers peddle.  And yup lives get destroyed in the process.

BBC had one of those black backgrounds with the dates and a photo of her - like they do for well known actors, a bit sickening when they too played their part in hounding her in the same report hey also showed some bbc footage of her surrounded by press and cameras and then the report over the footage they were calling it a "media scrum" - when they were there and part of it.
Umm no.  A high-profile public figure appears in court on serious assault charges…….  Why is that you think this should not be reported?  BBC just doing it’s job.


However, I don’t think the BBC goes in for muck racking, gutter journalism, cheque book journalism or phone and email hacking for example.


I do not believe that the BBC can be accused of playing any role, or having had any influence on these recent sad events.  To suggest so is a bit silly.

Fucks sake mate. could the mods not make the b word automatically delete the whole post please? pretty please?
What I’m saying is the Tory government poured cash into this ‘most British’ of businesses.  Were they audited?   Why did they not know about the pension fund concerns?  Meanwhile, Norton thanked them for the cash by praising BREXIT, and the Tories had the media push the story.  Great British buiness looking forward to BREXIT - blah blah blah.  Maybe they didn’t care – maybe all they wanted was their pro BREXIT story.


Who knows – the whole thing sucks – just like BREXIT itself. ;)

As for the media, we all know that they can make or break anyone whenever it takes their fancy, and i think that those who work in that industry don't really have a conscience the same as most half decent people.
You mean the decent people who buy their crap.  The decent people who consume a diet of reality TV.  The same decent people who take to social media to express their outrage or whatever.

Bull shite, reality TV........ complete rubbish 
Absolutely and completely agree.  But of course feed the masses crap and they'll no notice how much they are being shafted.

Why anyone believes anything the MSM says is beyond me.
I think you are referring to the gutter press.
I don't know who she is, but I wouldn't be surpised if she's the lastest victim of the gutter press.
RIP.

 It’s interesting that there seemed to be a queue of Tory MPs lining up to associate themselves with this ‘great British brand’.


Stephen Barclay the BREXIT secretary stated that Norton was an example of a “great business” that would thrive when Britain leaves the EU. 



Stuart Garner the boss at Norton claimed he had no fears about BREXIT and said it would bring “huge opportunity” “It's what the country voted for so let's get on with it,"


Norton went bust the very same week the UK left the EU.

 Meanwhile it may be worth noting the case of Mike Lynch.
Quote
Lynch was the founder of a UK company quoted on the London Stock Exchange. Allegations of improper accounting in the $11bn sale of Autonomy to Hewlett-Packard in 2011 were investigated by the UK Serious Fraud Office, which decided there was insufficient evidence to bring charges, and Lynch has always denied any wrongdoing. Yet the DoJ wants to bring charges of fraud and conspiracy against Lynch relating to the deal.
It looks like there is a real probability of Lynch being extradited under the UK/US extradition arrangements introduced by Tony Bliar’s government in 2003.

Aye, didn't the V6 play a major role in their downfall?

Sometimes its best not to stand out too much.
Was it really necessary to repost that thing, just as I am trying to unsee it?
