:D

If it was "made in Sunderland", then the ideal option for the UK is to export the defective item in question to the USA & pray they don't return him.

Project Fear strikes again.

The Government is preparing for civil unrest following our departure from the EU. This includes a team of police put together to help with emergency planning post Brexit.

Councils are preparing their own resilience teams for post Brexit issues http://www.itv.com/news/2018-10-09/civi ... isruption/

The Police are considering cancelling leave for a 2 month post Brexit period

The latest rumours are that Brexit may well be kicked down the road until December 2020.

Hmmm, I can't see it. I hope I'm wrong but May is struggling to keep it together. If she delays it'll all fall apart and we'll crash into a no-deal brexit (which we appear to be doing anyway).

Delay will allow the Remainers time to gather the evidence needed to show that the referendum was a sham for a number of legal reasons. There's already another application going in to the High Court on the grounds that the rules were broken.

If it is delayed I can see the plug being pulled.

Its supposedly part o the agreement she is reaching with the EU. We remain in a Customs Union til Dec 2020.

The reality is without some sort of delay we are up shitcreek. Nothing can be agreed and put into place before March 2019.

I don't believe that parliament would vote for a No Deal either. Nobody can be in any doubt now that that would be anything other than economic suicide.

I only wish that were true, however all the Brexiteers that I come across seem blinkeredly resolute that we should "just get out now, and stop messing about".





When I was in my early teens I used a public toilet. Don't recall where it was etc,, but it was typical of the 60-70's grubby smelly & covered in graffiti.
On the inside of the WC door, at eye level with me, someone had scrawled this little ditto amongst the obscenities.:
See the happy moron,
He doesn't give a dam,
I wish I was a moron,
-my god, perhaps I am...

Strange how often over the decades that has shouted at me from the back of my mind, when confronted by either blinkered attitudes or my own self certainty in situations that appear to be daunting others.

That's either Elizabeth Cady Stanton or Dorothy Parker.

Or Susan B. Anthony.

DUP now threatening to block the budget thru Parliament if they do not get their way over Brexit.

The whole thing has become a complete pile of shite that is destabilising the UK. Should be confined to the dustbin...... but the will of the people of course.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles ... ement-pact

The U.S. is threatening to block the U.K. from a 46-nation public procurement agreement, a move that would deny British companies from accessing a near $2 trillion marketplace after leaving the European Union, according to two officials with knowledge of the situation.

The U.K. will apply to rejoin the Government Procurement Agreement, a $1.7 trillion trade accord that governs global appropriation rules, since it will lose its membership after Brexit in March. U.S. negotiators have told their British counterparts that their application is outdated and needs to be revised, said the officials, who asked not to be identified because talks are ongoing.

If blocked from the pact, U.K. companies such as Rolls-Royce Holdings Plc and Serco Group Plc could lose access to members’ procurement processes, including the $837 billion U.S. market.

I realise we've seen it before, but it's increasingly less like a silly joke. ;(

The PM should call a general election so she can get the majority she needs to ensure that the passage of Brexit is smooth.

There will be no agreement either i suspect.

Privileged twats within the Tory party are determined that will be the end result.
