The Brexit thread

Postby Johnocyprus » 14 Sep 2020, 10:41pm

Feeling somewhat masochistic and not having ventured on it for weeks thought I would look at the Brexit thread in the Tea Shop but no trace of it.
Has it been binned or rendered obsolete or what?

Morning all, Another sign of the fact that Politics which should be about making things possible has become a case of trying to make things impossible? Maybe our so called representatives should only get paid by results? Screw up they get nowt!
Some are inept, others would appear to be as bent as a nine bob note! MM

The first I think of with almost every government utterance is "Are they wrong, incompetent, corrupt or all three?"

I've never known this in my life until now.

Poor old Boris is having a hard time having to maintain 4 1/2 kids on just £150k rather than his former £400k from journalism

I think you will find Boris has numerous sources of revenue declared to HMRC but undisclosed to public.He will also have advanced retainers on memoirs,aurob etc.He is an astute though repugnant person.

I'm by no means a Daily Mail reader having never bought a copy, but there are some things for which I find it very useful, particularly reports of court cases. Here's one which the BBC briefly touched on today.
