That'll be the same Daily Express that almost every day reports totally erroneous weather stories about "minus 11 temperatures" and ridiculous depths of snow to cover the whole nation. Using it as chip paper would be offensive to chips!

I'm distinctly worried by the possibility of becoming a replacement for the, once ever-present, c&p artist ORAC, however, the above post deserves this rather elegantly presented critique.

Except Mondays. Monday was normally a variation on “Philip had Diana murdered”.

Is a percentage of the UK population suffering from a lack of iodine ?

This time last year, so many of you were exhausting stocks of Kleenex at the impending departure of the UK from the EU.

Consequently, allow me to add to your priapism jubilation.

Ordered two items from Holland, both arrived, however, with the last one came an unexpected bill. One for Duty and Tax as explained here.
Tax and customs for goods sent from abroad: Tax and duty - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

Fed Ex kindly pay this to facilitate delivery, then send the invoice which is fair enough.

However, the fact remains, that, myself and how many others are now forced to pay tax and duties purely because so many lies convinced so many gullible and insular members of the electorate the UK would benefit from leaving.

Obviously, paying tax and duty will doubtless be perceived as being jolly good because the revenue goes to the UK which shows what "taking back control !" means.

Whereas what it really shows is the added costs which have to be met by customers unlike previously when we enjoyed the benefits of being in the EU.

Gosh, the UK is so fortunate to have Boris who "got Brexit done !"..

I've read this several times but, still can't make out what was actually dropped.

Sorry for the flak, so to speak.

"I've read this several times but, still can't make out what was actually dropped."
...
Brexit minister David Frost has stressed on a number of occasions since the summer the importance of addressing the role of the ECJ in the protocol. In recent weeks, Lord Frost has toned down his rhetoric about unilaterally suspending parts of the protocol by triggering article 16 and he has now removed a major stumbling block in the way of an agreement by effectively taking the governance issue off the table.

I think perhaps they have finally realised that the devil is in the detail and their time would be better spent sorting that out rather than political posturing.. At
least, I hope so.


P.S. Still waiting for any leaver to point to a major benefit that has been realised as a result of Brexit, or indeed any benefit. So far, any example was been to point to a bodges attempt to get things back to how they were before.

I have a feeling that you, and indeed the rest of us, will be in for a very long wait. I had an interesting PM from somebody this week, which I replied to, asking amongst other things for them to come on here and debate the benefits of this Govt, if they felt so convinced, needless to say nothing forthcoming so far. There are a number of posters who seemed to have "disappeared" of late, though I still receive PM,s from some. I would suggest that rather than being banned or what ever, even they find it difficult to defend the indefensible.

Cheers

Maybe they all went to a party at No10? One of No10's famous "Schrodinger Parties" - they have a quantum duality in that they simultaneously didn't take place and complied with all the regulations...

RTÉ's Berexit Republic podcast provides some good analysis of the overall Brexit process, and has rushed out a quick mini-podcast on this development

Ooh, I like that as a concept and it may even become a three word soundbite at some point if anyone can make it fit.

Brexit's contribution to the UK economy can never be understated...or to the added expenses soon to incurred. Fantastic deal really !

Wonder if cars with trailers will include glider trailers and those smaller ones used to carry everything including the kitchen sink which can't be stuffed into a roof pannier or the car.

I really do not understand why the EU are making things so difficult. They need us more than we need them don’t they? Trust them to renege on the oven-ready deal, making the easiest trade deal in history problematic. Blahh blahh blahh…

Brexit, taking back control….
