Re: It's not rocket science

Manc has thus far failed to prove his existence. As a real world entity. Ergo sum we must conclude Manc is a pure product of the internet.

Some Remainers are just having an orgy of wishful thinking. Brexit will be ruled illegal by the courts. We'll have a second referendum. Labour will miraculously return to power and scrap Brexit. The Tories will scrap Brexit when they find out how harshly the EU will treat us once we are out. Boris ...

Re: TdeF; unreliable gears? (spoiler for 13/7/16)

Di2 is very impressive in action. I've been using it for six months and would likely not go back to mechanical shift. Like above: f...

Mercifully not, and never likely to be Prime Minister of this country. Hopefully he will eat himself in politics.

Incredible! That's exactly what you'd expect an internet auto responder to say... Is this a Turing test?

I say Manc33 doesn't exist. It's just an internet auto responder, an autobot.

Re: Pound to Euro parity by year end?

Anyone buying currency at an airport should have their head examined. I always keep a few $ or €, take my Halifax Clarity Credit card, get to the hotel, walk to a cash machine and get some local currency as a cash advance. You always get an excellent rate, theres no charge and all you pay is a tiny...

Re: Theresa May: Brexit-lite?

I hope May will be diplomatic and conciliatory, but I have my doubts. I can't see the brunt of the EU not wanting to give the UK a bloody nose.
