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

I said hundreds of pages back? that the Irish border is an EU problem. It's the EU who aren't happy, not UK. Why is it the EU's problem? The EU are quite happy. The EU have compromised and agreed a deal with the UK Government (took time but they reached agreement). Boris Johnson was also happy with...

Re: Is Trump Mad?

There was an interesting commentary earlier today on the radio about why he's pulled out of visting Denmark and it has nothing to do with their PM not being prepared to talk about selling Greenland. Apparently Obama is visiting Denmark a few weeks after Trump was to visit (Obama giving some talk and...

Re: The Recycling Myth?

I believe that when you buy an electrical appliance the shop is obliged to take your old appliance and recycle it. The assistants in Argos refused to accept this or my defunct TV.

Re: Vaping - links with pulmonary disease!

..... The BHF report, and the experience of myself and many others, shows that vaping has been a crucial help in giving up smoking. If we had waited, presumably for many years, for the results of tests, I think there would have been a net reduction in public health. ....... I would have seen vaping...

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

The UK is I bet willing to compromise ( which is the heart of the GFA ) it is the EU that so far isnt, it wants to keep its cake and eat it.

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

[I think Boris' latest take is that the issue of the Irish border should not be part of the preamble to Brexit but part of the trade talks, and then presumably a free-trade agreement, rather than some kind of coercive tactic that puts the UK at a disadvantage. The preamble includes initial trade ta...
