  1. May ready for tough talks over Brexit

    You have to be high on the list! The rabid, vindictive rage of Remainers now borders on the pathological What we are hearing now is not argument: it is vindictive, inchoate rage which seems to border on the pathological http://snewsi.com/id/18169698282

    You really do need to look up the meaning of quid pro quo. In its simplest terms it means "something for something" I wouldn't want you on my negotiation team, we haven't even started negotiations yet but you already know the outcome.

    It says a lot when people prefer words of wisdom from Barnier and Juncker who don't know Christmas from Bourke Street and our ozzie friends. It's London to a brick mate as our friends would say.

    Your methinks have got yourself into trouble before. You do realise, don't you, this article was published in the Independent, your journalistic Bible....shame on them I say.

    I think this is called a quid pro quo but aren't all trade deals like that, even in a Pattays bar. The likelihood is you would claim the same for any country we wanted to have trade talks with. Its called Capitalism.

    Australia tells UK to open tariff-free trade to world after Brexit: ‘It’s worked for us for 26 years’ Australia’s high commissioner to the UK has spoken out on the benefits of Britain leaving the customs union after its exit from the EU next year, saying that by negotiating unilateral trade agreements instead, the country would be able to retain control of its trade policy. https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/brexit-leaving-eu-customs-union-081900175.html

    Yes and many continue to show their respect for democratic outcomes is only confined to outcomes they like.
  8. May ready for tough talks over Brexit

    Of course it's a valid argument. The people decided in a democratically elected referendum and a democratic vote in the Commons that a democratically elected government should trigger article 50 to leave the EU. How much more of a valid argument do you want?

    I am closely associated with John Lewis/Waitrose and they are a great example of the system you describe. Employees don't share the decisions ,I think that might be too cumbersome, but they have a big say in the CEO and profits are returned as bonuses.
  10. May ready for tough talks over Brexit

    The EU is panicking. Theresa May's 'paralysis' on Brexit could help her to triumph What kind of organisation threatens people who want to leave? Offhand, I can think of only three examples: mafia families, secret societies attempting to undermine the existing order, and religious cults. Arguably, the European Union is a bit of all of those, contrary to its view of itself as the very model of an idealistic, enlightened political entity. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/02/10/eu-panicking-theresa-mays-paralysis-brexit-could-help-triumph/

    The way the wind is blowing is as a result of khazi intellectuals I feel.
  12. May ready for tough talks over Brexit

    I agree. They present their readers with alternative facts so well.
  13. May ready for tough talks over Brexit

    I have and I accept them for what they are but for me they don't detract from the Telegraphs article. We all have our opinions don't we.
  14. May ready for tough talks over Brexit

    The EU’s chief Brexit negotiator has “fractured” the coalition of 27 countries by dramatically stepping up his aggression towards Britain, the Telegraph has been told. Michel Barnier is Risking a UK walkout...........
  15. May ready for tough talks over Brexit

    Meanwhile we wonder had the vote been 51.9% in favour of remaining in the EU would you have called for another referendum and would you have risked our future on a 51.9% majority? I think all Brexiteers know the answer to those 2 questions but please give us the bar girl answer "I'm different"
