First off, comrade Hilda has been busy in the propaganda dept! Praise be to Hilda! The dear leader will appreciate and reward your efforts with a cushy job in the newly opened Ministry of Bullshit. ✊🥀

Specials board.

⭐️ Snacks.

•Salty Bar nuts
(we always have too many)

•Marrow crisps,
I know you all hate them, but we had a glut and needed to do something with them. 🤷🏻‍♀️😬

⭐️ Mains.

A festive choice of...

•’Properly Stuffed’ “Christmas voting” Turkey.

•Festive Glazed Gammons.

•Goose that laid the Gilded socialist egg.

•’Whigs’ in blankets.

•Sauce for the Goose and Sauce for the Gander

•Brussels’ sprouts.
Divisive, yet still popular in some quarters...

•Neeps and tatties.
Grown in Corbyn’s Communist plot and kindly gifted back to us by the SNP.

<NB- We don’t have gravy in quite yet, 😔 but apparently once the nationalised gravy train arrives, there will be plenty for all. >

⭐️Festive Drinks.

•Rebecca’s long Baileys.
Seems nice enough, but can be vicious if you have too much.

•Corbyn’s Victory Gin.
State sanctioned by big brother.

•Bag in, artisan Earl Grey Cocktail.
A Boris election special.

•Red flag Rum.
for the singing socialists among us.

•Egg nog.
Gifted by Trump. Sticks in your throat a bit, but it’s polite to drink it and pretend to half enjoy it anyway.

•The #ClassicDmitri.
Shaken and stirred. A Russian Vodka based Cocktail, shrouded in mystery and intrigue. No one really knows how it came to exist, but all we know is, that it might have happened. Somewhere. And now it’s on the menu. Enjoy!


•Imported Panettone.
Get it fast, I’m reliably informed we will never ever have it again post Brexit.

•Traditional Christmas pudding.
have a good look for that old fashioned sixpence inside, we might need it when all the money runs out.

•Damson jam steamed pudding.
I’m told by the suppliers, that It’s like the infamous Mumsnet chicken, we can get eleventy billion servings from it and still have more for the freezer.

As always, welcome to all who pass through this place, but, as ever please observe the sign above the bar. If you can’t read it. It says...


🎄 🌟 🎁 🍸 🥜 🦃 🎅

Thank you Epic, and b*gger. I just wrote a screed on big pharma business models, and it's on the old thread. And now no one will read it, [sobs].

EpicShitDippedBatBiscuit Mon 02-Dec-19 17:30:03

C&P it Xing! We will look at it here instead!

I've just read it Xing, but yes, copy it over here because I want to read it again and digest.

Glad you found us.

Derxa, why not take up the offer of a free drink? You don't have to comment if you don't want to. There's always a quiet corner over by the roaring fire and you're welcome to sit there and just listen if you want to. smile

Tonight is a rooibus tea please - do you have any? Off the beer until later this week...

Walkingdeadfangirl Mon 02-Dec-19 18:05:09

Evening all, a ClassicDmitri for me, sounds intriguing.

So we have another desperate Corbyn bribe, to cut train fares by 1/3. A fully costed, totally planned, giveaway (honest). He just needs to cut back on our roads. How low can he go.

The longest ever planned rail strike started today. I hope voters realise this will be a permanent state of affairs under Corbyns communist agenda.

I read National Grid, SSET, Anglian Water and Severn Trent have already moved into offshore companies to protect themselves from Corbyns planned nationalisation frenzy.

Would the last business to leave the UK please turn out lights. Oh never mind, their will be no money left on the meter anyway.

EpicShitDippedBatBiscuit Mon 02-Dec-19 18:08:03

“Tonight is a rooibus tea please - do you have any? Off the beer until later this week...”

I certainly do! We stock all manner of beverages in this fine establishment , and a wide selection of herbal teas! 🍵

Which reminds me, I love Rooibos, must order some in for home too! 😍

Brill thank you epic - I rarely post on MN just lurk around (mostly on this thread of recent times.

WRT the polls, I usually look at the Guardian poll of polls tracker - it's still got an overall average of 12% at the moment:

howabout Mon 02-Dec-19 18:10:45

Walking Torsten Bell of the Resolution Foundation is not impressed. Pointing out that lowering rail fares is yet another policy for the primary benefit of wealthy Southern commuters.

The rest of us have to make do with affording buses, so we kinda need the roads.

EpicShitDippedBatBiscuit Mon 02-Dec-19 18:12:02

Fine Meme there Walking, might have to hang that up behind the bar!

“Cut back on the roads?” He does realise that many of us don’t have easy access to trains right? We don’t all live in islington, a mere bike ride away from the nearest underground. Has he even seen a road outside of London? Not sure he would think cutting back was a super idea if he had. Potholes anyone?

Walkingdeadfangirl Mon 02-Dec-19 18:17:10

howabout, I am sure Labour keep saying nationalisation will be an investment and wont cost us any money. How the hell will that happen if they run it at a loss.

And that is before the workers get pay rises, we get new trains, new women only carriages (where men are allowed), lots more seats so elderly gardeners dont have to sit on the floor, the tracks are maintained and upgraded....

Corbyn is trying to make Venezuela look like a wealthy utopia.

EpicShitDippedBatBiscuit Mon 02-Dec-19 18:17:53

I’m not cycling the 12 pot-holey, backroad miles to my nearest station thanks. Especially not if I’m at risk of being expected to do so in a DR Evil style shell suit.

Twattage13 Mon 02-Dec-19 18:20:50

Why does it have to be all or nothing with him with Labour - there is such a view of providing trains and keeping the roads running. And I say that as someone who is impacted by the strike on SW Trains and also lives slightly out in the sticks where we have some crazy potholes. I was quite looking forward to the £2b on pothole sorting out.

Also just want to add - I do flick through Guardian online but only for research purposes. I have a subscription to ToL...def not voting Labour...

EpicShitDippedBatBiscuit Mon 02-Dec-19 18:22:12

“Brill thank you epic - I rarely post on MN just lurk around (mostly on this thread of recent times.”

No worries! It’s always lovely to meet our lurkers, just jump right in!

A Corbyn special. Six platters of everything with mint sauce and send the bill to Gina Miller. She’s minted.

DustyDiamond Mon 02-Dec-19 18:29:56

Good old Jezza!!

Is the slashing of train fares in his FULLY COSTED! manifesto? Or is it like the waspi payouts?!

Man's a fool 🙄

I'm not a Leaver and I'm an anyone but Jezza voter.
He's like giant millstone round everyone's neck.
Gin and tonic please. Cheers!

howabout Mon 02-Dec-19 18:35:07

I can walk to 3 different railway stations. The problem is that I have very little need to go anywhere the trains go to and neither does anyone else in the HH.

I am all in favour of cheaper travel for 16-25 year olds to get them out and about for study and jobs and stop them becoming car reliant out of habit.

DustyDiamond Mon 02-Dec-19 18:38:34

I'll drink to that 🍷

howabout Mon 02-Dec-19 18:39:12

Jezza and Boris pushing bikes all the time bothers me.

The pro cycling agenda is extremely disablist and I don't see any compensating measures from any quarter - not to mention how much it rains in Glasgow.
