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

I am not castigating the EU for pursuing their self interest just stop pretending they are really suporting the GFA and Eire. The foolish May thought it was about the GFA I suspect then when the EU shot down the possibility of using tech to solve the border problem, it became clear it wasnt the GFA...

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

BBC - On Monday, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said EU patience was running out what an arrogant man you are Mr Junker. You and the EU in pursuing your self interest and dogmas are the cause of the trouble viz the backstop, Take some responsibilty for it? Pretending to be on Eir...

Re: My Lidl helmet - and fall

my Lidl helmet prevented a bad knock. As I got off my bike I fell backwards against an edge of a path, not very hard but the helmet showed the indent which would have been my head I assume. Thats the sort of accident I would assume a helmet is useful for ? If you were getting off your bike, I presu...

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

The population of the UK is 20 million more than in 1945. Though mechanization and other advances have increased yield, with some rather profound undesirable consequences, it must be said. What I meant was that not many in food producing areas like Lincs will go short of food. It may be a very diff...

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

Hi Broadway, You're certainly right about one thing - It Is A Bloody Long Read". But as a Lay Preacher said to his congregation many years ago - If you don't strike oil in the first ten minutes stop BORING! He talks about honesty. Well were the governments involved in the process of creating t...

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

"Ultimately, if the backstop deal does not stick, then there is no withdrawal agreement and no transition period. That means a hard, possibly chaotic, Brexit. At that point, the EU and the Irish government would have some difficult decisions to make about what happens at the border or to Irish...

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

I wonder if any of the "politicians" will dare to handle the hot potato of the backstop conflict and really deal with it? tell the truth and turn the screws on the Irish ( maybe we dont have a strong hand with the EU but the Irish another matter?) A bit of macho posturing is just what we ...

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

As ever with Brexit, the reality is the opposite of the perception. May's "deal" is no such thing, it's actually a mandate to negotiate a deal. It guarantees an absolute minimum of four years further negotiation with Brexit top of the political agenda, and likely significantly longer. Twa...
