Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Your stereotype, my stereotype...but in my experience mine is nearer the norm, reinforced by various TV documentries and comedys which parody the many booze swilling sunshine seeking Brits in France and Spain who hardly engage with local culture at all. Al Yet you have absolutely no idea what level...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

NB Cycle spaces are not available on ticket machines and our local station does not in any case have one (like most local stations in Cornwall). The ticket machines will print the cycle reservations you've ordered online. The easiest way for you would be to use the GWR phone app which holds tickets...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Not correct. A bike space can be reserved online when you book your tickets on the website. Using the GWR website you can even reserve bike spaces online for travel with other rail companies like LNER which do not have the facility on their own sites. I buy my tickets on the train (the local statio...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

An underlying concern about what is happening in Westminster is how it is illustrating how stupid our PM is, how he is totally unable to see a way through anything. His bill got passed but anybody with a half functioning brian cell would have seen that Parliament was going to be unhappy about it be...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

I had a moment's sympathy with the DUP this morning: Paisley lets rip at Tories. Asks Smith bluntly what county he lives in. Smith: I like in N Yorkshire and London Paisley If you had to move goods from N Yorkshire to Lon and have to fill in a form, you’d fill pretty aggrieved .. We are in the same...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Living abroad is so much more than "cheap plonk and bit more sunshine" for a great many broadminded and intelligent people. Well, not most of the ones I have met, brains addled by too much red wine, skin cancer and liver disease seems to be the main afflictions. As opposed to cider addled...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

A master move by Johnson aka Cummings to expose the anti-democratic rodents in Parliament who have blocked the "Peoples' vote" to leave the EU for the last 3 years. Lot's of bleating indignation from them is to be expected now that they have nowhere left to hide. Time to bring on the ulti...

Re: The ****** who get away with it?

Personally I'd have more faith in a fund manager who was prepared to put his own money into the same companies as he was putting mine. Yeah but he doesn't need faith, just a few million quid of "our" money to garner a bit of excitement in the stocks to get those shares going up whereupon ...

Re: The ****** who get away with it?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-50089887 supply your own for the blanks in the title. One of the world's leading fund managers has been forced to resign after the BBC discovered he had broken investment rules. Mark Denning helped to manage more than $300bn (£229bn; €265bn) of investors' money a...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

There was also a group of guys in a pub, knocking back Stellas and yelling "Bye Bye EU!" or something like that. I did point out to them that they were drinking Belgian beer.... Doubtful. It would almost certainly have been the UK brewed imitation Stella commonly known as wifebeater. OK O...
