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

We have no influence in the E.U., even wise words are ignored, why should we stay in such a club? IGICB MM (I didn't call MM a xenophobe or whatever so I'm ignoring that part of the reply.) I suspect there's no link or explanation because reality is the opposite. We had plenty of influence - https:...

I didn't hear it but reported the standards of accuracy politicians feel bound by On Sky News Rory Stewart, the justice minister, is now defending Theresa May’s Brexit plan. Hopefully he will make a better job of if than he did when he was on Radio 5 Live earlier, and went full Donald Trump, making ...

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

Seems Gove has been offered the Minister for Brexit job. The second edition of the Evening Standard is reporting that Michael Gove has turned down an offer to be the new Brexit secretary. Make it up you couldn't... Makes sense to me. Assuming the report is correct, if you'd promised too much and no...

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

So many resignations only the high profile ones are making headlines: Last night commentators expected resignations to be run at 1 hr intervals (apparently this hives max. impact) Ian And probably giving their mates in the city a tip off beforehand so they can make a bit of dosh shorting the pound....

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

Historians will still be picking the bones out of this for centuries to come. Maybe. May did at least clearly state yesterday that remaining is an option. If we do that somehow then this exotic sprism could yet become a footnote. I thought she just added that to play on the fears of supporter of br...

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

No its not, when we get back control of our fisheries we can then talk to our neighbours and sort out historic fishing grounds and end the scandal of foreign owned boats operating under our flag..... We can do that now as it has nothing to do with the EU. It is the UK (Westminster) that allows fore...

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

Well, there were diminishing fish stocks due to the stupid CFP rules on by catch which Hugh FW drew attention to. Huge numbers of eddible dead fish being thrown back wholesale. As for the Scallop Wars in the bay of the Seine that has been sorted. There are quite a few areas in which various fishing...

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

What do all you Remainers actually really honestly want? To have a referendum on the issues based on fact rather than lies and deception. Nobody stands any chance of making the right decision (for themselves) when the information their decision is based on is untrue. If people want to leave the EU ...

Re: Prescription Charges

What I can't understand is that so many are saying the change (or their not knowing about the change) has messed-up their retirement planning, but even cursory "planning" would have highlighted the change. If you spend your whole life knowing that you are going to receive your OAP at 60, ...

Just heard Chrispin Blunt (Blunt?), who is a prominent leaver I think, state on BBC's PM that we should, "start to see the benefit of Brexit in a decade"! :shock: Too late for me then. :( You couldn't make it up. He's being more optimistic than Mogg Jacob Rees-Mogg says the benefits of le...
