  1. May ready for tough talks over Brexit

    http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/david-davis-brexit-talks-private-planes-raf-un-security-council-blackadder-parody-a8067461.html tee hee!

    http://www.bbc.com/news/business-42097238 No wonder so many are dissatisfied, unhappy Brexit isn't the cure, it will make things much worse 😐

    http://www.bbc.com/news/business-42092171 Is ANYONE in charge? Real apprenticeships are key; not shelf stacking but HNCs in numerical control machines, laser optics and RF engineering!
  6. That's exactly what the Komodo Cons want. But, they need to show adequate EU "intransigence" to get away with it. I tell you, they don't have the interest of the average British individual at heart! It astonishes me that people don't see it!

    At least the chancellor has a sense of humour I liked the Clarkson self driving car phobia juxtaposed with Hammond and May! 🙂
  8. Well whoopee! After all the expense and angst; all the damaged futures and wrecked trade agreements; all the weakened environmental and social protection we can look forward to "a reasonably satisfactory ending"? It had better be a gigantic improvement on that! It is my opinion that Brexit should be predicated on huge upside benefits due to the potential huge risks. Just "reasonably satisfactory" is in no way good enough.
  9. One problem is the 2 Trillion national debt which is still increasing! The Cons address this by reducing corporation tax and giving tax breaks to the wealthy Our problems are our own and leaving the EU will exacerbate them NOT ameliorate them at all.
  10. I don't read The Guardian; too teachers' unions for me. I recommend The Economist I think it fair to say that the number of dissatisfied people in the UK is growing not reducing. When they find that, post Brexit, things are worse not better there may be a revolution. Higher taxes are needed.
  11. What an appalling thread Much as I am anti Muslim, nobody should be subjected to this dreadful individual Lock him up and throw away the key.

    OK, good There is stiction with manufacturing plants and May has made covert deals but the original premises remain. We WILL have less protections outside of the EU. I can see it happening already I use Apple as does the whole family; have done for many years. However, I do think we should clamp down hard on their imports. Their products are excellent and I happily pay a premium. My years in Denmark were the happiest time of my life. Perfect for a young family. Delighted that you understand hyggelig! However, their civilisation runs much deeper. I don't ask you to be responsible for the UK, just be aware that we can do better. Much better 🙂 Enjoy your G&T 🙂

    I suspect that I am rather higher on Maslow's staircase than you. It's not just about money 🙂
