This is the thanks I get. Offer to do a bit of fort holding do a couple of extra shifts in the NY. A couple of days in Dublin and I get back to.

Big Ben's not bonging for Brexit night. Although anyone outside a certain radius, all you have to do is switch off your media for 10 minutes and its like it never happened.

Brexit MEPs surprised that after January we have no oversight on fishing......(you voted to leave, what did you think was going to happen)?

The US have put the kibosh on any April tech tax by the UK promising heavy tariff penalties in return.

Former Aus Boss describes the equating of Commonwealth and Eu trade as 'ballocks'. His replacement describes Britain ditching the biggest Free Trade Area in 'an age of protectionism' as 'challenging'.

And theres the story firing around about the brexiter having to register and insure vehicles. Buy health insurance, register themselves just so they can continue living in Portugal.
They only voted Brexit to keep the immigrants out of the UK.



Don't forget 'British fish shouldn't be punished for their Brexit stance'.
 
You could argue that the Remain voters had a higher incidence of drug taking. As I suspect drug taking is more prevalent in certain groups (IE the young, those at university, which you claim are the remain voters). there fore can we please classify all Remain voters as drug addled long hair hippies?

Seems only fair.
Oh all the enlightened ones voted remain, except the ones who didn't.
The EU will probably not exist in 20 years, probably be something like the the 'United Federation of Europe' with a prime directive to interfere in everyone elses business to protect its market.
The chances of re-entering something which will look completely different, is a shallow, callow youthful silly.

The EU still doesn't get it.

The European Union is preparing to offer the UK a trade deal on tougher terms than its deals with Canada, Japan and a host of other leading trade partners, The Telegraph has learned. In what will be seen by industry as an unusually harsh move, the European Commission has warned EU member states that it would be a mistake to allow some UK industry bodies to be allowed to certify that goods conform to EU standards.
I suspect BoJo will crack on full steam ahead with trade deals with the US, Canada and so on and leave the EU to come to the realisation that being mutually shut out of each other's markets hurts the EU more than the UK.

The EU still can't understand that membership of the EU is not the wonderful thing it thinks it is.

Just been watching Trump giving his WEF 20 speech, saying that dealing with the EU is harder than dealing with China.

He also claims the EU wouldn't even talk with Obama.

You have to bear in mind that Boris came out the blocks ready to talk tough which totally surprised the EU after having such a compliant PMTM and parliament. They now have to respond in similar fashion so that they are looking like they have the ability to counter BoJo. From this, after negotiations, which we will not hear about until near the end, both sides will compromise to an extent and come to an agreement.

The only fault with the above is the EU do not have a reputation for compromise in any way - they just don't know how to.

Very interesting article in that squalid little rag yesterday (apart from a piece by Freddy Forsythe, well-known lefty).
It was entitled "The EU won't fix its democratic deficit with another top-down conference"
Better still it was then subtitled below 'Europe needs a new mechanism for involving citizens, not another talking shop chaired by the polarising Guy Verhofstadt'
If even the Grauniad are getting it then why not the EU and the vocal minority on here and elsewhere?
(It was written by an Italian professor of EU law who lives in Spain)
He seems to identify the problems and doesn't sound like a racist fcukwit at all.
The reason why remain lost the referendum and de facto the GE was adequately described in Private Eye recently when pointing out that Twitter echo chambers don’t actually vote or reflect those that do!

By 'Former Aus Boss' I assume you mean Malcolm Turnbull, and he would say that, wouldn't he? He was/still is a bed-wetter of the first water. By 'His replacement' you mean Scott Morrison, a more conventional conservative, and I would like to see the context of the quote you have used. I did see Turnbull's quote earlier today, and my immediate thought was not that the UK would be losing trade with the EU and gaining trade with the Commonwealth, rather losing trade with the EU and gaining trade with the world.

Frankly, a quote from Turnbull isn't worth the ones and zeros it's made with.

The EU have to hurt us and be seen to hurt us, whilst claiming all the time its our fault. All for internal political purposes, as the political is really all the EU cares about. If Trump loses the election, then god help us, as we would become very vulnerable to calls for a softer brexit and a threat against our currency to enliven the city.
 
Serious question:

Do they still move between Strasburg and Brussels every month, and why?
As our House of Lords are EU fanbois perhaps we should follow suit and move the House of Lords between Bradford and Rotherham each month

That'd learn'em
