    Brexit, WTF

    The first thing on the Labour list, is to remove parking fees from hospitals. This one item would probably get a person elected in my riding. We just voted in a Green party member federally. I did not vote Green. The other item in the favour of Labour is their pledge to revisit the Brexit vote for confirmation. It is possible that a Labour government could see the end of Brexit. The spell checker on this site must be US English.

    This reader has decided that you bring nothing of substance to the debate. Rather you bring insults that serve no purpose. Jack and others are doing a good job of providing info and personal thoughts to the discussion. The other exception is Wayne Marshmellow who does have something to say, but is still like you, more intent on criticizing others, than offering any sensible thought. I think Mr Clean said it best by referring to you as a troll.

    My polling predictions. Brexit vote, wrong, Canadian election, wrong, NZ England, wrong, SA Wales, wrong. Might be best if I keep quiet about next weeks footy game. BUT, SA could surprise. Hard to watch NZ lose, but they did it so well. Make them find their own way home.

    They probably did not factor in the lost revenue to EBC, makers of motorcycle brake pads. I just bought a set from Feroda, made in Italy. And they work better. From now on, I will check Feroda first. The brake calipers on my British made Triumph, are the same as my Suzuki. I bought a fairing part for the Triumph about 5 weeks ago, and saved a few dollars with the pound down. Fairing is also made in Italy. I am sure the British rugby team will try hard, but have about the same result as Boris and company. That statement about the future economic performance, would probably get a failing grade in an economics class. Various scenarios are allowed, but flat out bullshit will not fly.

    Largest ever loss for Ireland at a RWC. Oh dear. At least the wonderful game of rugby, brings countries together. And I would suggest, just the opposite of what my English relatives are trying to do. NZ, England. One week.

    I wonder which side of the Irish Sea border, the Isle of Man sits on. They claim to have the oldest parliamentary democracy, running for about 1050 years. Above a graph shows NZ exports to the UK at under 2%. It used to be a lot more, before the UK joined the common Market. My brother did the graphic work for a new wrapper, for the butter being shipped. Never got wrapped around a pound of butter, and his career got stunted. He did not like the job anyway. SW, do you ever say anything sensible? Does your role as shit disturber suit you?

    See post 11901. Pay attention to the RWC 2019. It is important. I could have said the Fiji Islanders, or Fijians. In NZ they refer to Tonga, Samoa, Fiji as the Island rugby players. Many of whom play off the Islands. You would know this if you followed rugby. You would also know who Chester Williams is, and why he was important to the game in SA. Japan beat SA, Ireland and Scotland. A bit like you and I winning the Star Worlds.

    A conspiracy would be Ireland, SA and Scotland, caving to Japan. But I would not believe it. Fiji looses to Uruguay, yikes. The Islands looked like they got stuck in second gear. And I just heard Chester Williams died at age 49. He played well, and set a fine example, IMO.

    Canada’s new tax on yachts

    I can not speak for the other islands, but on Gabriola, the road improvements has, been removing old known bumps, and replacing them with new bumps, via the tar seal program. We now have a series of corrugations / washboards, with the added benefit of loose gravel. This is on a 2 mile stretch, while ignoring other areas that need work. Too, we may discuss or argue about the Provincial budget. What I would like is some honest accounting, without political interference. I just had a free ferry ride today, which I do often, on my motorcycle. Using the cage is too much $$. Another problem with deficits, is the spenders, will invent new and improved ways to tax, which is what started this thread. Deficits are a crime, IMO. My 1983 XS400 motorcycle, costs $390 per year to insure, only for opposition damage. The bike is worth about $390. I am selling my SV1000S because of the stupid rates. I have every discount possible. I mentioned above, I have been paying too much since they invented this insurance scam. The collector program is reasonable. I have three bikes with collector plates.

    Yes. An old plan. GDP is currently exceeding the rate of debt increase. I am a fiscal conservative, and against debt.

    Thank you. I am fairly confident he will not get reelected.

    A motorcycle riding friend from Baltimore, has just landed in England. Will be interesting to hear his thoughts. He visits often.

    But Trudeau did not say it. Elizabeth May said it. I will stand corrected if you can prove otherwise. Our spender in chief has followed thru on his borrowing to prosperity program. He said we would have deficits for a while, and a balanced budget by 2020. He is off by about $20 billion or more per year. So now, being a senior, do I vote for what I think is best for the country, or who will give me the most free stuff. The Govt. does not care who gets to pay off the debt, so why should I?

    If I heard it correctly, that was not the current government led by the Spender in Chief. The statement came from the Green Party leader Elizabeth May, who said they would tax luxury goods over $100K at 10%. The Greens currently have 2 seats, both from my area. As more of their platform becomes known, they will not go far, IMO. This is a wake up call as to how radical they may be, even more so than the other loonie left, the NDP. They are best remembered for their accountant stealing $$ from the Nanaimo bingo folks, Dave Barrett saying " What's a million " Glen Clark and the ferry fiasco, ICBC which has been over charging since 1972. A local boat designer told the Govt. the catamaran ferries would not perform as planned, as they were too heavy. Glen Clark bad mouthed the designer. Glen later lost in court. The larger conventional ferries, were supposed to be bigger and heavier, and more fuel efficient. They are not. They use a bunch more fuel than planned, and are now being switched to natural gas, of which BC has plenty. Might still be in the ground.
