  4. We've loads of money it seems except when it comes to paying the public sector, emptying your bins, gritting the roads in winter and never , ever enough money to pay to look after poor unfortunate people who turn up on our doorstep to claim asylum. We've money to give to Pakistan to tighten up there border and make sure that Bin Laden didn't lsip in. We've money to give to Singapore, Ireland, Europe and anybody who wants it. We don't have money to look after the UK though.

  10. Dont be daft, you cant claim asylum, you arent a one legged , pregnant, lesbian Somali with 6 kids in tow, zero work ethic and no means of ever supporting yourself other than benefits?

    Or are you? The public needs to know!
  11. I've seen a lot of stupid things written on here but... wow.

    Cutting the UK to ribbons while our foreign 'aid' pishes out.
