Some of you lefties remind me of arch lefty Donnachadh McCarthy ex-Southwark councillor for Peckham. As soon as one of the Tory councillors spoke about some issue in their area he actually said 'I don't know anything about this but I am against whatever he said'..... Dominic Raab is actually Foreign Secretary and has spent 20 years in the foreign office as well as other relevant qualifications...I expect you would prefer that other ex-foreign office employee James Abbott Thompson!

Is this the missing line out of the Ghostbusters song?

On Raab what you say is exactly the opposite of what this Oxford Politics lecturer and former attache says LOL smiling smiley

[twitter.com]

On James Abbott Thompson he's quite obviously and sadly mentally ill and if they can't care for him in the community they need something akin to the old hospitals (I worked in one near Swansea as IT staff in the early 90s and there were 100s of people that had been there years resident - wonder where they are now). I guess he'll be found incapable of pleading.

Would this be the same Dominic Raab who didn't quite understand how reliant UK trade is on the Dover-Calais crossing?...

Oh, yes, down the side return too - does anyone have a number for a gardener? I did some trimming in the front garden yesterday with Mrs Bob.

And now Uncleglen amazes us with his utter lack of knowledge about Dominic Raab :D

Yes that’s him, the one and the same. Still 20 years in the foreign office probably meant that it took a little while to figure out the complexities and nuances of trading goods across the water from foreigners lands.

Like how the heck are you meant to know these details, if not by working in the Foreign Office. That said, Whitehall is quite a long way from Dover, I’ve read Samuel Pepys diary and it took him days to get there tbh.

So please, let’s cut Dom some slack here.

Raab has a fine tightrope to walk but he seems to have gone all in for Trump now (I think someone from the US has got in touch)

[www.independent.co.uk].

I can only assume from his comments that we would also have killed the guy if we had the opportunity, yes ?

52 sites "important to Iranian culture" - so they are culturally important to Iran but not to the world in general ?

Tempting to try and list them.

Is anyone here on the Forum applying?

Posted by dulwichbloke January 10, 06:38PM

Nah, but Cella/Marcella hasn't been heard from on here for a while. Maybe she's already applied and started working for Dominic.

Oh oh, Derek Mackay has now had to resign and Alex Salmond will soon be in court. Peak SNP? All downhill now?

An independent Scotland would not be run by the SNP just like UK post Brexit is not run by UKIP.

I'd expect independent Labour and Tory parties of Scotland.

For context - I didn't vote conservative recently, despite my leaver credentials on this forum. For me the question of government or leave are totally separate.

But, in anycase, after the election I was prepared to give Boris the benefit of the doubt, despite his patchy record with the truth etc. But I must say this forcing out of javid does concern me.

They wanted him to change his advisors, so really they wanted to keep him as a figurehead to show stability, but number 10 would actually make the decisions in the chancellory...

Hmmmm.......
