Re: Brexit consequences

Ian Dunt on Bercow's decision. It destroyed the government's strategy. All May's parliamentary chickens had come home to roost. Her constant disrespect towards parliament, her attempts to bully it into submission, had triggered a counter-attack from the Speaker at the worst possible time. There is n...

Re: Brexit Plan B?

I do wonder how much longer this feeble excuse of a Government can survive, especially with a PM who appears to be not only something of a fantasist, but challenged by both truth and reality.

Re: Brexit consequences

I believe another option is to revoke Article 50, which we can unilaterally.

Queen decides not to over-rule Parliament.

THE Queen has responded to Brexiter calls to dissolve parliament by clarifying she is going nowhere near that shitstorm. The monarch, who technically has the right to overrule parliament’s decision and appoint a new government, has confirmed that she does not intend to do so within the next million...

Re: Morgan Motor Company to be bought by an Italian investment firm.

TVR still seems to be British owned, but high-end - £90,000ish.

Re: Brexit consequences

If we had a competent Government, or a competent Opposition, we might just have some idea. As we have neither, chaos and uncertainty rule. We are in the hands of charlatans, self-promoters and dimwits.

Re: Brexit consequences

Another lengthy and detailed post from the excellent Chris Grey. In the immediate aftermath of the 2016 referendum seeking soft Brexit would have been both a possible and sensible way for the UK to proceed. Now, although in times of such uncertainty nothing is impossible, I think that ship has saile...

Morgan Motor Company to be bought by an Italian investment firm.

Founded in 1909, Morgan is one of the last car companies still under British ownership. It sells about 700 handmade sports cars , with buyers sometimes forced to join a waiting list that can last six months. It reported revenues of £33.8m in 2018 and an after-tax profit of £3.2m. https://www.bmmaga...

Re: Brexit consequences

"Amsterdam’s Brexit bonanza." Nobody in the Dutch capital is happy the United Kingdom is leaving the European Union; the economic downside will be sizable. But the city has arguably done more than any other European competitor to minimize the damage, and even find considerable upsides. The Dutch ci...

I have almost given up on the whole thing. I can do nowt and the parliamentary perambulations leave my brain pickled. All of those "experts" in Parliament will sort it satisfactorily, I expect. 😂😂😂😂😂
