    These idiots have ni idea what to do. They never have and never will know what to do for anything that is seen as a challenge.

    We should leave the EU immediately.

    The UK cannot afford to spend more money on the useless civil service who are neither a service nor civil anymore.

    The NHS should be broken up and privatised and private health care mandatory except for the real down-and-outs and there should be a fine levied when people miss appointments at the doctors unless there is a very good reason.

    Some of the billions saved should go to bolstering the armed forces BUT not just to play poodle to the USA, not while the twat Obama is POTUS.

    With Berlin's blessing, that is a joke surely and certainly does not apply to the UK.

    @1. That all sounds a bit radical, I think compared to other countries we get a pretty good service from our Police and NHS. As for the armed services, is 160 billion budget not enough, I think it is personally.
    With respect to the EU, I agree we need to leave pronto, that ship is heading for the rocks.
