Re: Brexit consequences

If nothing else, this whole sorry saga underlines just how dysfunctional our political system has become. As things stand, I cannot imagine myself being willing to vote for either of the main parties in the next general election, but voting for anyone else is a waste of time in our system. So I exp...

Re: Brexit consequences

That's an interesting turn isn't it?

Brexit means Brexit - Out means Out. :thumb:

I wonder what other political ladies might be thinking about utilising this technique.

Re: Brexit Plan B?

This sums up the current state of Brexit rather well: http://chrisgreybrexitblog.blogspot.com/2019/02/britain-in-tailspin.html For the circles we are going round are not a neat holding pattern, waiting patiently for a safe landing according to known procedures. Rather, Britain is in a vicious tails...

Re: Brexit consequences

Much of the reaction is that Tusk's comment (and his and Varadkar's mirth) is 'unhelpful' at this 'critical time' in the negotiations.

This is a very one-eyed view.

From the EU view it's a) probably helpful and b) not a critical time.

Re: Brexit consequences

Tusk tells it like it is.

If this is the reaction to the truth you can see why Politicians lie so often.

Re: Brexit consequences

I avoid Spoons where possible because of the owner who's a dick-head.

Also luckily their pricing seems to be filtering down to other hostelries so making them even less appealing.

Re: Anti-Vaxxer rants on GMB

How are anti-vaxxers a danger to the vaccinated children, if vaccines work? Because they don't 100%. Vaccines have a failure rate - low but they sometimes fail, so someone who thinks they have been vaccinated might not in fact be safe. People who have not been vaccinated by choice (or parents' choi...

Re: Brexit consequences

By the way I've just read (and I don't know how true it is) that many people believe that 'NO DEAL' means 'things will stay exactly as they are - nothing will change'.
