how does a no deal and a hard border pan out? Is there a magic fix?

We still haven't had Gibraltar hit the fan yet. Sovereignty isn't going to be an issue but Spain just formulated their demands. Charging of VAT on things like fags to try and stem the huge fag smuggling racket. fair employment treatment for 12,000 workers who cross into Gib each day, Better governance of the 35,000 companies registered there (more than one per head of population!) None show stoppers but Spain has a veto over Gib on the final agreement. Methinks it is no deal.

Two points...

France is a Republic.

Germany does not give a shit what the French think... Although they do accept 'entente coordiale'* as a means to an end...

*Aka 'we will play along because our money is of equal value**'

**oh cock, our money is of equal value.

Opps the lot of them. The only deal is No Deal#

#Psst it only called 'No Deal' because it doesn't work for the EU...

Going to take a test drive  in a 5.0 Mustang tomorrow, only thing I don't like is it's bright yellow but wrap the bonnet in Matt black & a few black side stripes could improve it.😎

Yes it'll look like a bumblebee!  ;D

We've got Tony B. Liar to thank for it. It was he who decided that everybody had to go, and if some couldn't cope with Engineering or Law then they'd dumb it down with degrees in hairdressing and stamp collecting.  ::)

University is aimed primarily at preparing people for a life of academic research not for a job in business. As such, at the relatively low levels of take-up academia needed, it was fine to fund it from the public purse, but, now we have students saddling themselves with loads of debt when the vast majority would be much better off getting a position in industry with some on-the-job training, an option that is self-financing to boot.

What we really need to be doing is promoting vocational schemes like apprenticeships, and bringing back polytechnics and tech colleges, not trying to find ways to dress up a system that is fundamentally flawed.
Ah yes, 100,000 to study German Polka History ;D

Even the local "Technical Collages" are calling themselves Universities now. Sounds rather posh for one day a week day release. Was never ever on the cards when i left school at 15 in 1959 to go on to higher education, just wasn,t considered a "working class" thing.

I went to Uni as did a couple of my cousins and our Nan was very sniffy about the whole thing.  ::)

I can remember her to this day saying "Our sort of people don't go to University!"  ;D

They did mention the human casualties of Trafalgar but not the number of ships taken-many subsequently lost to the gales that followed shortly after the battle ended.The programme did more or less begin with an inaccuracy when it was stated that H.M.S. Victory won the battle of Trafalgar ??? No she didn't she was one of a fleet of ships that won it.As I said though my main gripe was[that for a programme titled Great British Ships]not much was mentioned of her long career apart from a very brief mention of he being the flagship of Sir John Jervis[later Earl St.Vincent] at the battle of Cape St.Vincent it then centred upon Nelson and Trafalgar,where they made another error by stating that Nelson made a bee-line for Bucentaure[flagship of the combined fleet]yes Nelson was looking for just that vessel but it was only at basically the last moment that she was recognised and then Victory made for her breaking the line directly aft of her and crossed the bows of Redoubtable.When upon doing so Victory let loose her broadside[some guns double shotted and some even treble shotted]straight through the stern galleries of Bucentaure before hauling round to lie alongside Redoubtable.

It looks like the penny has finally dropped. She has bent over backwards to compromise and be decent and respectful, while they are pissing all over her from a great height, and laughing while doing it.
The fact it has taken her this long to realise shows she isn't up to the job and should make way for someone who is. Sooner the better.
The fact that Oliver Robbins is still in his job this morning after he led her to were she got to yesterday, demonstrates she still hasn't developed any judgement or grown a backbone.
