    One of those things is fundamental, one is negotiable.

    Looking grim. Looks like it’s been passed to Johnson and Van Der Leyen.

    and promptly administratively suspended from the Labour Party while police investigations take place. Anyone seen Mark Francoise lately? He’s been very quiet.

    Adam Parsons sky Europe correspondent just now on sky news. “Fishing not easy, but LPF fundamental to the EU”. They aren’t on the same level, how could they be? Have you asked yourself why the Tories desperately don’t want to trade on a level playing field - and why it’s virtually impossible for the EU to allow trade with a non member who could undercut them at any time?

    I’m not sure what point you’re making here. Of course fishing is still an issue, that’s evident. It’s an issue that can be solved though. The REAL issue is as I said, the level playing field. As for who to believe me or a former minister? I’ve quoted Tony Connolly the RTE Europe editor who regularly gives updates on the progress of the talks and just recently Sam Coates Sky news political editor and formerly Times employee. There are quite a few other journalists around saying the same thing. Also listen to what comes from Barnier. He really only talks about the level playing field.

    Another one for @Gav Fishing isn’t the issue - as I told you. It’s the level playing field that the U.K. government are desperate to abandon. The EU or the U.K. aren’t that desperate over fishing The Tories want desperately to drop standards and workers rights. You should have known this being a supporter of brexit. The British government are using you brexiteers. They are praying on your English nationalistic tendencies to hide their plans to make the ordinary British worker much worse off after brexit.

    That is nowhere near to the point I just made.

    I gave you my views on that yesterday. The important thing to the EU is the level playing field. It’s our government pushing the fishing agenda in the media because they want to take the public’s eyes off what they really want, which is lowering standards and removing workers rights. Reading your and other brexiteers continual posts about an industry so small shows me that their deflection tactic is working. Fishing won’t stop a deal, but the LPF will.

    Van Tam believes coronavirus will be with mankind for ever. Now there’s a thought to juggle with.

    I am surprised though, that the extremely clinically vulnerable are only in tier 4 with everyone over 70. That doesn’t fit with what I’ve heard recently from various politicians/scientists. Not that I’m too bothered, just surprised.

    Me too I think.

    Those Tory rebels knew they wouldn’t defeat the government Philipl. If there had been any danger of that happening I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t all have voted against it.
