Given the state of the roads and road system in Grantham haven't changed for the last 261 years, who knows, it may be the first part of a road improvement programme....upgrade from drovers tracks to cobbles at last !

Norway and the UK have just signed a Brexit agreement. Everything will be as was. You can all now relax and sleep well, the future is secured.

Is this really how Remainers wish to be viewed?

Maybe KnC is a close confident of Terry Christian. He was a good pal of Jimmy Seville. Labour voters have a tendency to have strange bedfellows.

Really? I thought that agreement was signed in April last year.

The UK currently has signed trade deals in place with 46 other countries (47 if you include Palestine as a country), and mutual agreements with the USA, Australia and New Zealand.

Nope, according to our government's website, signed 28.01.2020.

Actually, the term is confidante but we're not here to discuss your standard of literacy...... or otherwise.

Remember this little gem ?

" The left are always very quiet on sex abuse, child grooming and bullying.
Are they looking after their voting base or are they generally the ones who commit such acts
? "

You seem to have a rather unhealthy obsession with attempting to correlate any of the above, plus your latest perverse offering, with anybody who is Left wing. Albeit without a shred of evidence to support your foetid imagination .

Have you any evidence that Terry Christian was a close friend and associate of Saville, and, by virtue of insinuation and inference, participated in his activities ? Equally, your putrescent "wit " may amuse your kindred spirits, which doesn't include myself, and the less than subtle inference contained in your last sentence.

I would suggest, before you start to condemn Remain voters, always a popular pastime here on JB, you wait until the excesses of Leave are displayed in public this coming Friday and into the weekend.

So what was the agreement signed with Norway on 2 April 2019?

As ever KnC you are very quick to condem other's comments but see no need to defend your own.
Says more about you than your inflated prose ever will...

Oh, KnC has already said more, in his many posts, than any of us need to get a very accurate idea of what sort of 'person' they are

I gave evidence of the left (MPs) in respect of child abuse and their attitude. Naz Shah. Also the locations it has occurred, i.e. areas that are generally controlled by Labour MPs.
I gave evidence of the person drawing a swastika on a 50p coin.
People can look up the latest on Terry Christian and his outburst on ITV this morning. They can also look up on his connection with Saville. To quote just one tweet
"legend".
But let's just remember how upset certain people became when BJ used the word 'humbug'.
Since when has a single word caused more outrage than the abuse of young people in this country?

First one was trade, this be the new one. No surprise if they sign more, that's what politicians live for.
New agreement

Per
And a quick perusal of the first one has the sentence “The agreement covers trade in goods and will only be used in a no deal scenario”

and the second one “
Even though the UK will leave the EU at midnight on Friday 31 January, the relationship between Norway and the UK will not change until the end of the transition period. The transition period will last until 31 December 2020. Brexit will not affect Norway’s relationship with the UK in 2020.

Discussions on what happens after the end of the year are to begin after we ‘leave’ in a couple of days time.

Buy now while stocks last ! Once in a lifetime offer ! An absolute must for Mail readers and JB contributors wishing to enhance their abodes !........sadly, one item that seems to be missing is a household item of soft tissue that was advertised using a puppy, with Boris emblazoned on it. And a special mention for the inclusion of some Latin......just to ensure the electorate know how jolly clever the Gov't is.

Just wondering how many of you will be daft enough to admit buying this junk

There again, there was a lot of merchandising for a certain well known couple.......that didn't end well either.

Note the delivery date however.......

Ministers introduce new law scrapping automatic right of European boats to fish in UK waters

A new law scrapping the automatic right of European boats to fish in British waters is being introduced by the Government.The Fisheries Bill will outline a legal guarantee that the UK will quit the Common Fisheries Policy when it stops following the EU's rules at the end of 2020. It means that UK ministers, rather than Brussels, will decide which foreign vessels can catch fish in British waters from 2021 onwards.

Environment Secretary Theresa Villiers said: "This new Fisheries Bill takes back control of our waters, enabling the UK to create a sustainable, profitable fishing industry for our coastal communities, whilst securing the long term health of British fisheries. Leaving the EU’s failed Common Fisheries Policy is one of the most important benefits of Brexit. It means we can create a fairer system which will allow marine habitats to thrive, with new powers to support our fishing sector and conserve our wonderful Blue Belt at home and abroad.”

Fisheries minister George Eustice said: “For many people in coastal communities, taking back control and leaving the Common Fisheries Policy is at the heart of getting Brexit done, and this Bill delivers for the environment, fishermen and the Union.”

The Common Fisheries Policy was previously dubbed the EU’s most “unpopular and discredited” policy by the Scottish Government and faced criticism over the equal access it gave to to UK waters for European fishing boats. But earlier this week, Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar suggested that the UK may have to make major concessions on fishing in order to secure access to European financial services in the upcoming trade talks.

Barrie Deas, chief executive of the National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations, said: “The central purpose of the Bill is to give UK ministers powers to manage UK fisheries after we leave the Common Fisheries Policy. We very much welcome that.”

A move towards ‘climate-smart fishing’ will also be considered within the draft law to account for environmental impacts of the industry.

This will bring chortles and gurgles of joy to many on here who can easily relate to the immaturity, and, of course, sentiments, as demonstrated by who else but ?........Farage and his chums !.Note the enthusiasm for populism......

Unfortunately, in the past Nige has always been there in spirit, but firmly to the rear with his "leadership " qualities, but in this case offers an all too predictable insight as to how others of a similar inclination will follow in the UK........starting Friday night.

It's deeply ironic and sad that this unashamed flag waving natonalism should occur the same day as a commemoration of the results of excessive nationalism was held in the same parliament. Absolutely zero dignity.

Right now I'm watching a silly ex MEP witch on C4 trying to justify this sickening display as 'bit of fun'.

They really have no concept of the consequences of their actions They act like they won a football match.
She said that in a few years people won't admit they voted remain. I think otherwise.
