A few quick comments.

Baby boomers maybe enjoyed wealth under the auspices of the EU but not because of the EU. Mostly it was inherited wealth from the war generation.

You are thinking like most people. What is in it for me. Will I be better off and be able to enjoy the side benefits of the EU. MigV6 hits it on the head. Sovereignty is a hard earned but easily given away concept. That is the fundamental part I fight for. There might be hard times for a while but the EU know that and count on peoples inertia and fear to keep their ball rolling.

There is so much fear. The media use hackle raisng termnology all the time. Like “when we go over the cliff edge at the end of March” People nherently dont Lke change and yet have just sat back and handed Brussels power. So long as they have an iphone, fast broadband and a mcdonalds they don’t get give a damn.

A fnal thought. If the EU is such a good thing , how come there arent more elsewhere n the world?

A no deal would , I understand create a problem for the EU. The Irish border. They would have to instate some kind of hard border in order for the EU integrity not to be compromised on goods INTO the EU. Funny how Varadker has gone on and on about not wanting a hard border...…

May ought to be offering the EU a Free Trade deal today. And then when they Um and Err play them on the media.  Of course it will be too little too late. She will doubtless be happy to come back with backstop limited to ten thousand years. ;D ;D


Everyone has breathed a sigh of relief over May winning the no confidence vote. Didn't Maggie do the same and then was gone in a week ?

We can only hope that she has got the message that the backstop is unacceptable.  ::)

If if the backstop was removed by witchcraft the rest of the deal is pretty piss poor. Still more in the EU than out of it.

Brexit is supposed to be a brave new world. It looks like TM is afraid to let them go.

The fact that the rest of the deal is poor will be forgotten by the many. The backstop smokescreen has seen to that.. the whole thing is like a pantomime with unwilling cast members.

But people will vote for them in your absence.

For rhe life of me I cannot understand why a new party did not emerge . A party for properly leaving,  making British people proud tobe British, a party tolead Britainout of the morass. Not UKIP , not lib dems. Instead it is just aform of limbo land .

JUst when you thought all twists  had been taken, this comes up . Still a long long way to go yet.

No deal, a decent set of negotiaters , a decent set of problem solvers ( like where to source lettuces)  is the way forward.

I'm aware of three new parties that are forming or are formed and like in mainland Europe I expect new parties to rapidly have an effect on the electoral landscape. Both Lab & Cons. will probably split into two parties. The Internet & social media, have changed the political landscape in mainland Europe & I personally expect the same to happen here.

New Parties:

Time Party
CleanBrexit Party
ProsperUK Party


........and following on from Varche's very valid and true comments how will those so called parties do any good in changing Brexit which 52% voted for and should get on 29th March 2019??

Mrs May who has worked bloody hard against 27 other national leaders to get whatever she has got, and is still trying to negotiate more, proving she is no quitter, going now will do no good whatsoever and in fact damage the very Brexit so many want.

FFS this just goes on and bloody on, so let everyone just retreat from their repetitive views and Let it Be, whatever this is now. Just going over the same old ground is doing no good to anyone, and the treasonable 48 who have pushed in the letters are just out for themselves, not the country or us the people.  All they are doing is weakening further the position of our leader for what??!!   >:(


There is a difference between working smartly and hard. I agree she has worked hard but would suggest not smartly. If she was smart she would not be in this position now with the truly ridiculous backstop. Therein lies the problem.

I was reading yesterday that political corruption costs Europe an astonishing 900 million euros a year. Britain has corruption but isn't anywhere near the other countries including Spain of course and surprisingly Germany.

True. Here in Andalucia, we have just had elections. A brand new Far Right party called Vox with a one hundred point manifesto managed to take an astonishing 12 seats despite having no campaign material.

I was watching more interminable procrastination on the News when I spotted a bus drive by with a slogan which read as follows:

'dangle berries' to Brexit


Hadto google in case I was mistaken. I wasnt!  Is it partof a fleet with close to the knuckle slogans? I-bet th forum censor doesnt like it.

Yes the forum censor burst into action. The real word is similar to bullocks

Well they have become the mos successful protesters of modern times in my eye.

Macron has caved in and given , without being asked, thefollowing.

An end to the planned fuel tax rises

7% increase in minimum wage i.e. 100 euros a month more

Planned  tax  increase on low income pensioners dropped

Overtime no longer taxed

Employers to be encouraged to give atax free end of year bonus


Plus some other things like listening to the Provinces!

He is not going to tax the rich more though!

Think what would have been achieved if theyhad rioted, protested more. ;D

 :y

The only issue is owners who have had problems. It is the route I will take once I have made sure the right MIB files are present. There are supposed to be two updates per year. The later “november/December” isnt out yet.  At least leaving the car with the key in while the update takes place over an hour or more isnt an issue for us.

You Webby are a bad lad. Santa won't be bringing you much other than a bag of rags to mop up all those filings.

Don't JPat do a kit. . In recommended suppliers?

The pound started it's fall today, so I quickly went to Sainsbury's to fill up at £1.214 per litre; cheapest it's been for months and months, which obviously will not last now! :o :o :'(

Yes as I said earlier, you have May to thank for that. I filled up with super derv at 1.23 euro today. Cooking derv was 1.17. Fuel is going to go up anyway due to agreed lower production. Tilbo will have to walk everywhere!
