Brexit Phase Two - Trade

'Smooth and orderly. It's the new 'Strong and stable', watch this one fall apart too.
It's probably workable until the 6am news in the morning.
Stop confusing me. I thought "strong and stable" was replaced by "meaningful vote". And now you come up with "smooth and orderly"?
Still, the soundbite on the Marr show last year of "We have absolutely no plans to increase the level of tax" seems a bit hollow with the NHS tax funding increase.

And then ran away and let a slack handful of other Tories vote for his amendment, which he refused to withdraw. Very brave, I'm sure...
If you think government whip instead of Vinnie Jones in this picture and Dominic Grieve instead of Paul Gascoigne, and you'll have a shrewd idea why Grieve chose not to vote against the government.

Nearly as impressive as your record of forecasting when the Commons and Lords will see sense and kick Brexit into the long grass.

I don't think Mystic Meg is quaking in her shoes...

Wordsmith :smile:

I haven't made a forecast on that.

It does remain a possibility, though.
 
According to the latest news there's a shortage of CO2. @Baglock, an outlet for all the waffle and howling you provide.
I couldn't contain myself anymore. I nearly said sorry but I'm sure @brotheton lad will do on my behalf.

Ah. I have enough CO2 here at home for about 3 years' worth of home brew. Stock up while you can, chaps.
 
For more information contact Michelle Cakebread?? As in "have your cake than eat it than have the bread as well"?

I see EU nationals can steal this job apply......

I am not worthy so as to gather up the crumbs under thy table.

Obviously, because this shortage of CO2 has happened after the brexit referendum, it’s the result of brexit.

I await @One_of_the_strange to come along shortly and tell us that without further EU integration supplies of CO2 and sunshine cannot be guaranteed in the future.
 
Not next month. Rather later than that for the final showdown.

Next month does have the Customs and Trade Bills which will be exciting, though.
Does TM take lessons from you in kicking cans down roads?
 
So you don't know, either.
Nope - currently sitting on the edge of the Lac de St Croix in the sunshine, eating a pain au raison with a nice espresso to hand and looking forward to getting my paddle board out in a bit! Can't get too excited about this Brexit stuff

just taking a lead out of the military playbook where, for instance, no logistic experience or expertise seems to be required to fill a DCOS post. O r an Infantyman can command the Defence School of Transport.
In that case maybe a G3 Ops Ninja should fill the billet; @Brotherton Lad, maybe?

Jesus wept.

£60-70k for such a critical post? Seems a bit miserly

Has anyone paged @meerclutz or @AneurysmAndy ?
How so? They will be Civil Servants therefore no major decisions will be taken by them and they will not be held responsible for any decisions they do take as that will be down to the Minister! On top of this there will be a nice pension and, if things go well, a shiny gong from Aunty Betty! :cool:. Seems like a reasonable recompense for a clerk!



I suspect I will now be subject to a CS verbal whiplashing from jim30 :D
 
It’s actually a global problem across the entire developed world as higher wages in non agriculture jobs draw cheap labour off the land.

Fruit growers turn to robots to solve labour shortage
Nothing new under the sun, happened in the UK in the early 18th century with the invention of the Spinning Jenny for weaving. This led to automation and the establishment of cloth mills which pulled manpower from the land. Caused riots as a I recall, where crowds went in to smash the new technology - these people were called Luddites.

None, but I twice turned down postdoc positions at two different RG universities.

You?

(although generally the RG bit is only meaningful if you actually worked at one as a researcher...)
I don't have a degree - three GCE A levels for me and then the Army. I might get round to doing one for enjoyment if work and hobbies allow. Always fancied History.

So Remain, and by extension the EU, are trying to stifle the natural order of progress through mechanisation leading to increased productivity and prosperity.
