    Brexit Thread

    Rees-Moggs ERG group showed their true colours this week, firstly they refused to publish their Brexit proposal, because they didn't want it to be scrutinised. Secondly they have begun the process of collecting signatures to remove May. Also see that Vote Leave have been found to be acting unlawfully by the high court, and the Electoral Commission guilty of both failing to apply the rules fairly and equally and guilty of failure to investigate the Vote Leave campaign after complaints where made.

    Collingwood a decent shout, always sensible, worked very hard as a younger pro to maximise his talents. Durham still struggling financially, not too far from home. Fowler a long time out of the game, does he have the desire? David Lloyd, I'd have him as a president, he's too immersed in the tv world to spend quality time at the club.

    I think it needs a clean sweep to be honest. Couldn't give you a name, but the club has huge potential, and that must be a pull for any young and aspiring coaches. Needs someone with real desire to succeed and who can't accept getting beaten easily - bit of a grizzly Aussie attitude. What's Ricky Ponting up to these days?

    Lancs started positively vs York's too. Long way to go though.

    He looks like a proper classy batsman, but often gives his wicket away completely out of the blue. Have to wonder that it isn't concentration.

    Fuel prices have increased because there has been a fall in the value of the pound - which is related to market uncertainty around Brexit; yes other factors are also at play like we discussed. Saying prices don't always follow the value of the pound, therefore your whole hypothesis is wrong is wrong in itself. Both things can be true at the same time. As for the getting personal part, I think you should read back. It's you who started with the guardian reading know it all stuff, and telling me I have no comeback. I could have called you a daily mail reading bigot, but chose not to, as I don't know you, and wouldn't want to insult you. However, if you can't accept that the value of the pound has an affect on imports of fuel, then I'd call into question your impartiality when looking at the effects of Brexit, negative or positive.
  8. I just think they should initially be banned from schools, where kids on sugar rushes and / or caffeine lows are more than likely to be disruptive, and affect the learning of kids who want to learn.

    I think you may need to look in the mirror before accusing others of thinking they know it all. Feel free to live in your fantasy land where Brexit is not already causing major problems for this country, before we even leave.

    You really think Brexit has had zero impact on the value of the pound?

    2 games left vs York's and Hamps, win both and stay up, win one draw one probably scrape through, anything else relegated IMO.

    The increase in April and May was when Trump was having his spat with Iran, pushing the price of oil up. Oops.

    Brexit Thread

    It's scary, because I think this is the fourth time the government has put this deal on the table, and the fourth time it's been rejected. It's obvious from my postings that I don't want Brexit at all, but a WTO rules hard Brexit is by far the riskiest proposal on the table. In my opinion, we need to go and rescind A50 and give ourselves time to put a logical deal together, or go back to the public and say we haven't managed to secure a trade deal, should we a) Proceed on WTO rules, b) Stop Brexit, c) go back to EU and get the best deal we can (based probably very similar to Norway).

    No one said it's never happened before, but increased fuel prices are due in large to the drop in value of the pound a consequence of Brexit.

    For perspective, at 12% a year, it would be around £20 a litre now.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/county-championship-division-one/table Going to the wire. Lancs have to win probably 2 games to stay up.

    We'll it looks like 2 of 3 teams below us now will lose, with only Essex likely to win. Could go to the Roses game deciding who gets relegated. Can't quite believe that of York's, they have some quality county players.

    Looks like he was a very highly rated youngster who didn't get picked up by a club at 16. Worth a risk.
