I can't for one minute believe the EU really have been able to find places for such facilities elsewhere on the globe, and are going to go ahead anyway.

Remember, they need us more than we need them...
Has the government thought of a name for its new GNSS ?
It has to commemorate something brave and British that will upset those rotten foreigners. How about Waterloo?
Or perhaps Dunkirk would be more appropriate.

Seriously, I would like to know how the funding for this unnecessary project will sit in the queue for that 350m.
Will it be before or after the NHS, the regional development funds, the farm subsidies, the new customs controls?
