Re: Eight O'clock Pips

If I want to get the time I listen for the bells, the bells! Our church bell must be radio linked because when I check it against network time it's bang on. The only trouble is they go every quarter of an hour till midnight... So I can tell the time to the nearest 15 minutes. Plenty, at weekends. I ...

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

It's so depressing that the country is now hanging on every word from Rees-Mogg. In any other age, he would be viewed as a harmless eccentric whose foolish ideas could be safely indulged with a laugh and a joke. Prosperity follows stability. Always has, always will. Find me a failing economy and I'...

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

So it seems even the arch supporter of brexit leader, ReeMorgue is leading the charge of the ERG to avoid a no deal exit, by means of an agreed A50 extension. He also says that business doesn't need 'certainty', maybe not absolute certainly, but they need to know they can get their goods out of the ...

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

Just over 7 weeks to go to till E-Day.. And 10 days till May has to put her 'new' deal before parliament.

I have a bad feeling about this...

More on Nissan: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-47107561 JRM just interviewed and it's all to do with Nissan Corporate Governance shortfalls*, he says. And diesels.

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

Perhaps the slump in Labour support has got something to do with this, a potentially large group of rebel MPs splitting to form a centre party, anticipating a summer General election: Rebel Labour MPs set to quit party and form centre group https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/feb/02/rebel-labo...

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

Nissan is now not building the new X Trail in the UK, despite the government's assurances. As, indeed, I predicted. They are also 'looking at' the things currently produced in Sunderland, so that's not even the worst of it. Especially now Japan has just signed a big treaty with the EU, I'm reasonab...

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

Am I missing something here.. Surely if the only thing the Tories can deliver is a no deal Brexit crash out, the British electorate will turn on them like a pack of dogs? If TM can't deliver a credible Brexit deal on the 14th February (the last date possible to be able to get the six bills through P...

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

Everyone it seems is still relatively sanguine and rosy coloured about the exit from the EU on thy 29th. I'm not. IMO a deal at this 11th hour is so far beyond wishful thinking, it can be 100% discounted. Here's my (perhaps fanciful, perhaps not) take on it: Crash out, with nothing, not even WTO in ...

As an aside why do some people use that stupid expression and what exactly does it mean?


It means: 'I have no credible way to justify or reference any part or portion of my argument.'

I could bring a 9.5% dark ale. But I doubt I'd get it through customs..

Dunno.
Close the bridges over the Tamar, but give me some notice so I can get stocked up with beer. :wink:

What's the matter, not keen on Doombar? You know, the beer the Cornish don't drink :lol:


Doombar.. You are dredging the depths there my friend.
