Brexit is not bull kaka, it is a quest for what little there is left of democracy. The EU is the antithesis and in no way benefits the poor of it's union, indeed the exact opposite is the truth. Mass unemployment in southern Europe among under 25's and they now want to create 10m jobs in Africa.............and you support this Jilts ?

Faf, May has danced her way into trading with Africa.
I’ve met many an Eastern European who has more than doubled their income.
Large unemployment in southern France was shown in a documentary by Ross Kemp (2012), yip, Africans from the French ‘colonies’, slumming it in Marseille. 31.30mins in.

[www.dailymotion.com]

He also did a documentary on Naples, again young unemployed people getting involved in drug dealing as there were few jobs to make a better life for themselves, oh and it’s not just Southern Europe, he did a ‘similar one’ in the good old USofA, same old story, oh and yes, he did one in Liverpool and South America. Oops almost forgot, he did one in Africa too. Same old story the world over, jobs need to be created the world over, if Africans all had well payed jobs they wouldn’t ‘have to’ emigrate to Europe,but AI and robots will be taking more jobs. Hundreds of thousands of jobs to go shortly as call centres use more advanced AI systems.

Oh, if you think Brexit is the answer to all ills, speaking to a lad a few months ago who said Michelin had ‘millions’ of tyres in store at its Dundee factory and last week in the paper there was a report of 100s of jobs at risk at the factory because of cheaper tyres made abroad. How will Brexit compete with that, cut the wages of the British workers to make us more competitive? Global issues need global answers,people of the world need to unite and create a better world for us all.

Thanx for your support, watched a programme last night on super yachts, one was selling for £130m, good to see not everyone is living in poverty in Southern Europe eh. Again the other week over 100 migrants killed when their boat sank, tough titties eh.
Maybe we should sing, people are dying lord Kumbaya, doubt the fictional character will bat an eyelid though and ‘his’ peddlers, well they will pay lip service while they protect the billions of pounds in the church coffers.
Hopefully the youth in the Dundee music industry can steer the global younger generations into a more fair and just world, won’t hold my breath i’ll see it in my life time, I’m sure if they get a global audience they will be bought off by our masters. (The new world order didn’t half @#$%& themselves when the Pistols were on the go). But I do have ‘faith’ the young can succeed where their parents failed.
Talking of a global audience, did you see the opening of the V and A programme on BBC2 on Friday night, oops forgot, it was only shown on BBC2 Scotland, this great iconic building of the world wasn’t good enough for the BBC to screen to all of Britain.
Well at least equality is spreading slowly, this weekend is Dundee Pride weekend, you know your city is heading in the right direction when it has its first gay march. To think homosexuality was illegal here a few years ago, even Ireland has woken up to religious bullsh*t and the evils of it. Stop the lying lord, kumbaya, and rid the world of religious nonsense kunbaya.

Hopefully Dundee will prosper and make all those, American Mormons, Nigerian Christians, and the other bunch that stand in pairs at their wheelie bookshelves, that prey on the poor and gullible, disappear from the High Street. Once they are all gone, then I will believe Dundee is on the up.

Bottom picture, off road parking bays, fair enough, but what if the tenants have electric cars, how do they plug the car in, run an extension lead through the window?

Well lucky for you, due to adverse weather conditions I was able to visit the V and A Dundee today.

http://i68.tinypic.com/w1qidi.jpgt

You enter into the biggest tearoom Dundee has to offer, then climb a staircase to a downward view of ....the biggest tearoom Dundee has to offer. Queue for ten minutes to see the Scottish design gallery, some nice stuff, arty parties reading and digesting every fact on printed boards, lads like me, look, see, and move on, less than a twenty minutes see.

Want to view anymore pay £10...(11 quid if you want to give a ‘donation’) to enter the other galleries. Biggest rip off I have seen for years.

The best museum I have ever seen in the U.K. (free) is the maritime museum at Greenwich, not too big and full of lads things., excellent.

Edit to say..we cannae even design a waste bin that can stand up in a breeze. ( bottom pic).

I wouldn’t rate it as a museum, to me a museum should be full of artefacts.
This building, well it’s more like two buildings bridged together on the upper floor. You enter the bottom floor which is a cafe and shop, go up the staircase or lift to the next level, the floor space there is only a quarter of what it could be as it is open to the downstairs, it contains a bar and a couple of classrooms. You move over to the other building where you can see The Scottish Design Gallery, it contains some nice items and the McIntosh tearoom which looks quite big on the video but in reality isn’t much bigger than my living room. As I say, I’m no art expert, I wander around museums, look in glass cases, if something catches my eye I’ll spend a few minutes looking at it. This gallery I would say, would take up about half an hour to view to Joe Bloggs. The other gallery you need to pay a tenner to see, ( seen it on the telly, didn’t look like ten bobs worth). Then on the floor below are offices etc, which aren’t open to the public. Not much of a museum in my book.

[m.youtube.com]

Surprised the VandA chose Dundee after we destroyed the McManus Gallery (old museum)it used to be full of character; dark, spooky, creaky, you could smell and even taste its presence. They spent £20m about 15years ago doing it up and killed it, bright, clean and sterile now.

The VandA is right on the river, should have been loadsa glass so you could enjoy the views, instead of concrete blocks on the outside there should have been solar panels, perhaps even a tidal powered generator, a green building of the 21st century. Another great opportunity missed, I’m sure it will have its uses for the elites, but as a museum and tourist attraction for the punters, naw.
Oh, and there is a new bus service, an electric bus, but the bus company is too f’n lazy to drop people off at the door even though they could, a few minutes walk doesn’t sound far, but Dundee isn’t the flattest, sunniest place and if your elderly, disabled, carrying suitcases it would be nice to get dropped off at the door.

Well the morons in charge have actually thought about this, the gaps between the slabs are too small for gulls to roost and I read they were fitting electric shock wires and high pitched screech systems to scare off all our other feather friends. I’m hoping the walls do weather with the hope they are more pleasing on the eye.

Anyway here’s the truth, it’s not a museum but a conference centre, they have thrown in a few artefacts to con the public into thinking they were paying for a museum.

Pff they even call the railway station...... a train station.......morons.smiling smiley
Instead of calling the halls Locke Halls they should be renamed Focke Halls, because that’s what is in them.

At least I’m not alone in my thoughts, this is today’s local paper. Cafe, shop and function suites.
I noticed the police were out in force the other day booking drivers, a short stretch of road in town with no vehicular traffic signs (not no entry signs) catches people out a lot, especially outsiders
as buses, taxis and cycles are permitted. Great to see local plod out making money from unwitting tourists to the city.
Kerching, kerching, kerching, this V and A is a rip-off cash machine, tourists be aware. Oh, and the V and A is a charity.

Well now the paint has dried and the first through the door luvvies and arty-farties have given out all their gold stars, the punters are now giving true views on TripAdvisor and it doesn’t make for good reading, 24% rating the ‘museum’ as poor or terrible, even many of the 3* and 4* reviews are critical of the ‘tourist attraction’. An eighty million pound monumental disgrace, so much for Lorraine Kelly and actor Brian Cox and their fake news on how terrific it is (well they probably got an all expenses paid trip to say so on the Beeb). Some of the 5* ratings were from locals suffering from ‘Emperors new clothes syndrome’ me thinks., conned by a few z-list celebs, a little razzamatazz and a couple of squibs. Any how, the power of the web allows the ‘real people’ a say, and here’s what they are saying.

LONDON — The real size of the UK's Brexit divorce bill from the EU could significantly exceed £39 billion because the EU's spending pledges and pension costs rose by tens of billions of euros last year.

The EU's auditor described member countries annual budget fees as "moveable," the Guardian reported, because they are linked to changing commitments and liabilities.

The British government insists that the Brexit bill will be £39 billion, with payments that mostly decrease annually until 2064. But EU negotiators have never endorsed a specific figure, with one senior EU source estimating last year the figure would be £53 billion.

The UK has agreed to pay a share of EU bills as part of its divorce settlement from the EU.

The claims are different because they rest on a complex series of calculations with uncertain factors including the likelihood of an EU country defaulting on a loan and the life expectancy of Brussels diplomats.

New figures released by EU auditors reflect the EU's growing debts and liabilities that the UK will be forced to pay into after Brexit. Spending pledges hit €267 billion, or £237 billion, last year, up from €239 billion (£212 billion) in 2016.

Both pension contributions and EU budget guarantees rose significantly and the backlog, which auditors say the EU should bring under control, is increasing faster than predicted.

Of course Brexit is all about self, self, self, people in this country feel their standards of living are falling and are mainly blaming immigration and Brussels. The Scottish nationalists are having rallies up here every other month and are demanding another Scottish independence referendum because they blame Westminster for failing them. If those in power are or appear to be failing the people (even if they are democratically elected) then people turn to self-preservation. That’s why people come in boats from Africa, that’s why Eastern Europeans come to Britain, they feel their governments are failing to provide a decent standard of living for them. From coca producers in South America and poppy growers in Afghanistan, to street gangs in London, it’s self-preservation, people living in poverty or suffering from austerity, many of them seek a better lot by their own means because their governments fail them. Just watched a documentary about the Med on BBC2 and youth unemployment in southern Italy is 55%, and some people wonder why some of those kids get involved with the Mafia, it’s simple, the Mafia employ them, pay them, therefore provide them with a better standard of living than the state does.
We are only on this planet for about 80 years or so and we shouldn’t expect anyone to sit and suffer from poverty during their lifespan, at the end of the day, poverty is man made, man made money, all he needs to do is share it around more equally, so we, we, we, can all have a decent standard of living.
Until our world leaders unite and provide for us all, it will always be dog eat dog, something Brexit will not solve.(Sm109)

The brexiteers on this thread voted out not for personal self.

Most of the remoaners on this thread have admitted to voting for personal self.

I can never understand how Ed Sheeran got so popular, his music is terrible. Ever song is just a tale about him out drinking with a beautiful women delivered in a half rapped, half sung voice, backed with a generic dance beat mixed with some acoustic guitar.

Remoaners probably like his music because it is so inoffensive and dull it doesn’t upset them and is the ideal music to be piped into their safe spaces.

Lol.

See Trump will still arm Saudi even though he believes they killed a man in Turkey (looks like it’s not just Putins lot that murder their own on foreign soil) (Sm102) seemingly it were Saudis behind 9/11 and they have been blamed for backing radical preachers in the U.K. but hey ho it’s all about the money, money, money. A bit like saying Hitler was a bad man but selling him cheap gas. Capitalism is all about personal self, if Brexiteers can’t grasp the basics it’s a bit rich calling the left loonies.

That would be the West Lothian question, anyway once the bankers f**k off of to Ireland, little England will collapse into insignificance and come running to the EU for forgiveness and hopefully the EU will tell English Bulldog to stop yapping and do one, England isn’t the Dogs b*ll*x of the world.
And NI And Scotland aren’t apart of Engerland, not sure you are either, do you live in Burnley or any other part of the U.K.?

Now back to common sense of which Jocks have plenty, once out we will continue in much the same way as the last several hundred years whether Scotiland and/or Eeerland become indies or not. The EU will become much more selective of those wishing to join /rejoin and dip their snouts in the EU subsidy trough. Once a major contributor leaves, that is us, they will only be considering net contributors which rules out Scottiland and EErland along with pretty much any other likely country. That is your daily reality check, over and out..........for now. Have a nice day.
