  1. Tie your own Shoelaces. There used to be someone who used that moniker on the runners website, not sure it's the same person
  2. Yeah, I guess there'll be no public appetite for making things worse after ensuring a few years of this utter nonsense
  3. It's sad, really. So needless. We can't pretend to be surprised, when this is literally what 17.4 million people voted for. I don't know where this is all going to end. Trade barriers go up, businesses that do business across continent struggle, they come down, those businesses do better. So lads, when are we reapplying for membership again? Presumably we have to endure this nonsense for a few years, before giving it up as a bad job?
  4. Plus he's happy having chips on toast with turnip surprise to follow for his tea. Amazing really top claim that we're global Britain and its a big world out there, and at the same time erect v carriers between us and our biggest trading partners. It really is the dumbest thing
  5. What's the point of having a mind if you can't change it?
  6. 🤣 Yeah, fair play. Little Miss Perfect had painted herself into a corner. Being asked to back this deal must leave a bitter taste on the mouth though. But in the end, Johnson had to own the whole thing..
  7. That's possibly the SNP underestimating the capacities of Calamity Doris to come back with a deal that's actually worse than no deal. You'd have thought by the fourth attempt, the government would've hit better at this negotiation lark
  8. Lads, honestly, it's Christmas eve. We'll all have had a crap year, for sure. We've got differing views on Brexit, and I don't think they're going to be resolved. We shouldn't be having it out like this. And I include myself in that because I've been somewhat hard - nosed, and probably done off that comes from all of the stress I've been through. Let's find some common ground in sincerely wishing each other a merry Christmas. Merry Christmas, guys. Have a safe, happy, joyous time, try to forget what's happened in this corona-blighted year, if only for a few days.
  9. OK, well, thanks for putting me straight on that, but I do believe my point had some value regarding the value of the pound. And the initial reaction of the stock market I think shows what they thought of it.
  10. So not "completely untrue" then. Also from the link I posted: " Shares plunged and the pound plummeted to a 31-year low as panicked traders reacted to the UK’s vote to leave the EU and the prospect of recession amid months of market turmoil. The FTSE 100 fell more than 8% within the first few minutes of trading on Friday, with shares in banks particularly hard hit and nursing their biggest falls since the collapse of the US investment bank Lehman Brothers in 2008." My point was that the city is a weather vane for whether the govt is doing a good job with the ec
  11. Completely not true? Completely? The value of the pound has fallen by twelve percent against the euro since the referendum: https://fullfact.org/economy/pound-fallen-since-brexit/ Also: https://www.theguardian.com/business/2016/jun/24/ftse-100-and-sterling-plunge-on-brexit-panic
  12. I've already lived in Switzerland and Germany. It would as you might imagine be mainland Europe again. Probably Portugal. I'm lucky in that with my job I can work autonomously from home. All I need is my laptop and a good broadband connection and I'm away. I'm sure i could pick the language up OK plus I would eventually get my eu citizenship. Second choice would probably be Germany (Berlin) If it wasn't for the fact that I've spent a ton of money getting my house done up, I may already have gone.
  13. Can't be certain on rejoining. But it would be a logical progression. I'm not sure what the terms would be that the EU would insist on, but if it does happen, then I do hope that our negotiating team is a hell of a lot better. If the tories get on again, I may have to leave the country. I can barely stand them now, they've done so much damage, why do people vote for them?
  14. Wouldn't disagree with any of that, but it's still a soft brexit, with no benefits that I will actually feel. What's if all been for? So at least we've got what 17.4m people (a minority of the electorate)., may have envisioned when they voted for eu membership to cease, but probably didn't because what we've ended up with f doesn't match the rhetoric. There's no benefits, but at least we haven't got any more disadvantages. Polls show that the majority think we should've remained. I suspect we'll end up going back in, especially given the demographic split on the vote. And I don't t
