Rejoice, rejoice at the news of a Royal conception?

A surprise GE?
Oh look, a seagull has shat on your head, a surprise GE? You really do clutch at straws sometimes.

From the BBC, the view on Brexit from Berlin, where it seems ministers are trying to calm stormy waters. Hmmmm.

Berlin's view of the 'Brexit breakdown'

An interesting bit from the article asked why the EU should allow UK better conditions than EU members have.

but why, he asked, would the EU want to offer the UK an advantage over its own member states?
My question is why does the EU offer disadvantageous conditions to their own members? The EU admits that being able to do trade deals is good for countries but is deliberately stopping countries from improving their lot, just for an ideal.

I am glad to be out of the EU - sooner the better.
 
More bad news for amusing blubber and lackbag, ageism to be made a hate crime.
 
I see some of the usual suspects are making the old mistake of assuming that NI and Tax contributions are kept in a pot for them to splurge upon reaching retirement age! :D
 
Not mine but a good twist on cake-ism! :D

LEAVER: I want an omelette.

REMAINER: Right. It’s just we haven’t got any eggs.

LEAVER: Yes, we have. There they are. [HE POINTS AT A CAKE]

REMAINER: They’re in the cake.
LEAVER: Yes, get them out of the cake, please.
REMAINER: But we voted in 1974 to put them into a cake.
LEAVER: Yes, but that cake has got icing on it. Nobody said there was going to be icing on it.
REMAINER: Icing is good.
LEAVER: And there are raisins in it. I don’t like raisins. Nobody mentioned raisins. I demand another vote.
DAVID CAMERON ENTERS.
DAVID CAMERON: OK.
DAVID CAMERON SCARPERS.
LEAVER: Right, where’s my omelette?
REMAINER: I told you, the eggs are in the cake.
LEAVER: Well, get them out.
EU: It’s our cake.
JEREMY CORBYN: Yes, get them out now.
REMAINER: I have absolutely no idea how to get them out. Don’t you know how to get them out?
LEAVER: Yes! You just get them out and then you make an omelette.
REMAINER: But how?! Didn’t you give this any thought?
LEAVER: Saboteur! You’re talking eggs down. We could make omelettes before the eggs went into the cake, so there’s no reason why we can’t make them now.
THERESA MAY: It’s OK, I can do it.
REMAINER: How?
THERESA MAY: There was a vote to remove the eggs from the cake, and so the eggs will be removed from the cake.
REMAINER: Yeah, but…
LEAVER: Hang on, if we take the eggs out of the cake, does that mean we don’t have any cake? I didn’t say I didn’t want the cake, just the bits I don’t like.
EU: It’s our cake.
REMAINER: But you can’t take the eggs out of the cake and then still have a cake.
LEAVER: You can. I saw the latest Bake Off and you can definitely make cakes without eggs in them. It’s just that they’re horrible.
REMAINER: Fine. Take the eggs out. See what happens.
LEAVER: It’s not my responsibility to take the eggs out. Get on with it.
REMAINER: Why should I have to come up with some long-winded incredibly difficult chemical process to extract eggs that have bonded at the molecular level to the cake, while somehow still having the cake?
LEAVER: You lost, get over it.
THERESA MAY: By the way, I’ve started the clock on this.
REMAINER: So I assume you have a plan?
THERESA MAY: Actually, back in a bit. Just having another election.
REMAINER: Jeremy, are you going to sort this out?
JEREMY CORBYN: Yes. No. Maybe.
EU: It’s our cake.
LEAVER: Where’s my omelette? I voted for an omelette.
REMAINER: This is ridiculous. This is never going to work. We should have another vote, or at least stop what we’re doing until we know how to get the eggs out of the cake while keeping the bits of the cake that we all like.
LEAVER/MAY/CORBYN: WE HAD A VOTE. STOP SABOTAGING THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE. EGGSIT MEANS EGGSIT.
REMAINER: Fine, I’m moving to France. The cakes are nicer there.
LEAVER: You can’t. We’ve taken your freedom of movement.

More pressure being heaped on May.

Cabinet told to force Theresa May to drop Chequers plan or she will face no confidence vote 'within days'
Cabinet ministers should force Theresa May to drop her Chequers Brexit plan or Tory Eurosceptic are threatening to force a no confidence vote in her leadership within days, The Telegraph can disclose. The Cabinet meets this morning, with the deadlocked talks about Britain's exit from the European Union in March next year top of the agenda. The meeting comes just 24 hours before Mrs May flies to Brussels this week for a key summit of EU leaders.

Eurosceptic Conservative MPs back a looser Canada-plus free trade deal with the EU over the closer vision agreed by Mrs May’s Cabinet at her Chequers country home in the summer.
I doubt they'll carry through the threat, but May has no guarantee of that. In addition Canada Plus has a decent chance of making it through the Commons; Chequers does not.

It would May is in a distinct minority of people who can't see the obvious way forward.

Yiu run away expats can’t handlr the new reality on the ground.... oh well, roll on Match 29 avd buckets of yiur tears
 
round and round we go. WE don't actually know what agencies we will need. We are TOLD we need them but not why and if or why The EU needs to be involved. Now I note that the car industry is threatening to do what's necessary if they don't get "frictionless" trade. Ford are at it again as they were in the 70's and eighties, except then we hadn't been asset stripped by the Yanks and the Germans, Do they honestly believe that Japan won't fill the gap? Oh and the relative EU agency obviously didn't bother much about dieselgate. So there'll be a massive contraction of diesel manufacture anyway. This of course is nothing to do with Brexit, the motor industry will do what it does anyway, so their stance is effectively "grease our palms".
Seconded shame that can only get one like
 
You really are a pointless turd.
I’ve noticed when something hits close to home it replies with a funny icon, almost As if it doesn’t have the cognitive ability to get its being laughed at, not with.
I ignore it unless my curiosity is pequed as to which tosser as raised someone’s ire. Invariably it’s either of the usual 2 fantasists.( or the pencil)
Can it still not manage a post without personal insult or sneering?
But your right, a tax dodging sneering turd.
 
Wind the clock back a couple of years.... you get another chance to vote. If you would still vote to leave the EU knowing what most people realise now then you are a danger to society and should be arrested.

She gets a vote of no confidence, survives that and sheds some more useless cabinet members. When are they going to do it, while she’s abroad? That sounds awfully familiar.

The obvious way forward being pull article 50and stay in, before we do ourselves any more harm and turn ourselves into a bigger laughing stock.
