Funny in a sadly obsessive sort of way. Take care out there.
Can we expect you to start at least aspiring to behave along S&V lines at some point or are you despite difficult times continuing on sniggering schoolboy permanently?
 
Well, given that Brussels had already warned Italy it is in breach of EU budget rules back last year, and they forecasted that would remain in breach in 2020, given the levels of extra spending, there's a likely starter there.
EU have quietly ditched their budget constraint rules.

If you can't fix the problem, fix the metric.
 
I always do John, but I'm still here, told you pretending to dismiss people doesn't work.
You didn't even tag him and he accuses you of obsessive behaviour ? Neuroticism at its finest.

A genuine, genuine thought, and also a question.

what advantage (to the uk) would there be to an extension to the transition peiod?

previously extensions have been vigorously and enthusiastically endorsed by some, as far as I can see, to try and buy time to reverse a direction of travel, but surely no-one thinks such a reversal likely now.

do they?

No advantage whatsoever. All the EU are doing is trying to make it look like their blackmail demands were always going to be softened (they won't) and the horrid UK picked on them during cv19 so not their fault.

I hope we make our offer of a FTA firm and acceptable by the EU up to the end of the year and make it clear its a yes or no offer not a negotiating position.

IMO people have invested >3 years of their lives insisting they are unequivocally correct. For those who want to leave the EU, all good.

But imagine if you had spent more than 3 years of your life vociferously fighting against brexit only to have it overturned by democracy (again). I suspect that there are a great many people in a fugue state who are grasping at any straw that might confirm their righteous belief that the UK should remain part of the EU.

Fabio Rampelli, Vice President of the Chamber of Deputies in Italy, removes the star spangled sphincter and puts up the Italian flag. At the end he says: " MAYBE WE SEE YOU LATER, MAYBE!"

Shortly before his political gesture, Fabio Rampelli said on Sky Tg 24, addressing the EU leadership:
“Europe has enjoyed Italy’s political weakness for many decades. Italy today does not want to be a waiter while others are eating lobsters like France and Germany. If you plan to take advantage of the emergency to bring countries like Italy or other countries with more fragile economies to their knees, Europe will have no future.”


I find this quite startling. Although a long time coming.

A very bold message to the eu from the Italians.

Just focusing through the COVID-19 prism what have the eu actually done? They've offered to organise a joint purchase of ventilators, but it's done what?

Easy stuff, like claiming EU victory in the Olympics, they're good at. Pretty much everything else they are terrible. It's like they're reading a script and can't deviate.
 
C in lobsters case :D
Were those not the Arks meant to have followed bearing the useful people, but no actual intention of departing? The A Ark left on the pretext of saving people from potential doom, shipping the useless off planet first while the rest carried on ops normal.

Wonder if the XR/climate change hysteria is not a precursor to winding up the excitable lentil knitting types before shipping them off somewhere they can bleat to their hearts' content without bothering the rest of us.

I thought it went a then b. But b was the rejects. If you put them in a they'd probably suspect something.

As for XR. I was hoping that they'd all top themselves to reduce carbon emissions, a space launch wouldn't be very green, but they seem to lack the commitment needed.
 
Tell 'em the solar flares are going to get them but they can be saved by sealing them up in a couple of abandoned mines.

Shouldn't take them long to start eating each other once they run out of vegan sausages.
