      A leeson to others, whose (unelected?) EU Parliament representatives may have even voted for this, that they are not sovereign, according to Brussells.

        Indeed, and the very reason many in the UK voted to leave. It is acts like this that many Leavers feel vindicate their decision, no matter how many millennial remainers complain about the possibility of not being able to have their cheap boozy weeks in the South of Spain (shock, horror, they may have to pay more – or worse, pay mobile roaming charges!).

          Brussells has utterly failed as any kind of legitimate ruler in its most basic obligation to protect each country’s borders. The walls have been breached. The enemy is among them. It is up the locals to reject the authority of their overlords, resume responsibility for their own defences, & enter into trade & defence negotiations with their neighbours.

        I guess I am a loser then Blazer, I still have my old (and slow) iPhone 5!

        But I am sure you will be camping out for hours before hand so you can be one of the first to get one in NZ.

      iPhone X was already over $2,000. This will probably hit $2,500 or more.
      I hope people have enough left over for a $5 case to protect the thing when they drop it.

      Just your average regular Joe’s. Nothing to see here, move along.
      Some on Blazer’s conspiracy website thought they were British plants acting the part because they looked too much like Russian agents to be Russian agents.

      This bit was interesting:

      “A critic of Putin’s regime has claimed the suspects are “already dead” and that a search for them is futile.

      Andrei Piontkovsky believes that Petrov and Boshirov could have been executed to hide traces of the alleged crime.

      He compared the case to that of Andrey Lugovoy and Dmitry Kovtun, the men accused by Britain of poisoning Alexander Litvinenko with polonium in 2006.

      Lugovoy and Kovtun went public to deny the claims soon after being accused, meaning the Russian authorities then protected them, said Piontkovsky.

      “Lugovoy and Kovtun rescued themselves by running to Ecko (radio station) and going public,” the respected mathematician and political analyst said.

      “One (Lugovoy) even had to be made an MP. If ‘Petrov’ and ‘Bashirov’ don’t appear in the coming days, it means they are already dead.”

    interesting!stupid more like…’This bit was interesting:

    “A critic of Putin’s regime has claimed the suspects are “already dead” and that a search for them is futile’

    Why bother announcing they have identified them?

      Deny responsibility and then have them disappear so you can’t be contradicted.

    The CFO of Google in tears talking to staff about how upsetting it was that “We lost” and Trump won the election…no hint of political bias I’m sure.
