Drop in any time you've got a puncture or lost your chain.

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

Co-operation is always a Good Thing. I've never said that we shouldn't co-operate with the UofE. My wish is that we talk talk, and not walk walk. We don't have to be Unionised to co-operate. Get out of the Union and talk, and talk whilst we're doing it. Jaw Jaw is better than War War .......... as ...

I'm not sure why you feel my opinions should be constrained by my location, but nevertheless, your conviction leaves me dazed and confused.

Where is "here"?

Where am I?

We deserve an answer.

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

It is the (often deliberate) failure of the UK to understand this fundamental aim of the union that underpins the failure of Brexit.

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

On the various claims here about the purpose of the EU, it is worth going back to its foundation, often traced back to the Schumann declaration, to:

'make war not only unthinkable but materially impossible'

It might take away the chance in a lifetime to deregulate the UK under the guise of saving us from malevolent foreign influence.
