  1. Surely this is part of the Withdrawal Agreement and is reliant on there being a ‘deal’ since “nothing is agreed until everything is agreed” as stated by both parties - it is not a unilateral declaration from the U.K. govt. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  2. The stones look like the ones on the huge bank inside the reservoir compound itself which could explain to distance between body and bike if he passed out while riding along the roadway on top.
  3. Not sure about nobody being happy - our fellow EUropeans will be quite satisfied If we are still in Single Market/CU and they are rid of Farage. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  4. A fair point so I have deleted it. It is worrisome however that their main political aims have become mainstream. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  5. Not sure if it has changed now or if leadership is automatic when all others drop out but Conservatives did used to put it to a membership vote. I remember voting for David Davis some years back against Cameron - not sure now what the right decision would have been now in hindsight. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  6. Here is another letter from Heath clearly stating that it was more than a free trade agreement prior to joining and previous referendum:
  7. Bit of an odd headline/statement to make surely - basically if Russia attack us we might retaliate? Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  8. No - a minister does not have to be an MP but can also be from the House of Lords. Peter Mandelson is a good example where Brown put him in the cabinet as Business Secretary and also gave him a peerage at the same time. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  9. Yes - important that people remember that peace can be a fragile thing and the Good Friday Agreement (or Belfast Agreement as TM seems to have started calling it now) can be undermined by those whose goal is not in the best interests of the people of NI as a whole but narrower political aims. Worth remembering also that the current dominant power in NI are the DUP who TM relies upon to maintain power in Westminster - the same DUP who walked away from the GFA. Also interesting to note that the majority of the violent acts referred to in the article were by UVF/UDA aligned groups (57 of 101). Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  10. You were talking specifically about the Euro in the post I responded to. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  11. So - when they do that we have the option of leaving and would almost certainly have the support of several other EU countries at that point. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  12. Must have missed that bit. Was it where they could change the rules to disadvantage those that didn’t adopt the euro forcing us to join it - have you forgotten about Art 50 which always gives us the option to walk away? Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  13. Is it Groundhog Day or something? We discussed this yesterday where it came down to your claims being backed up by nothing more than ‘a feeling’. If you have come up with something more substantial that gets round the treaty obligations and opt outs that are the legal basis for us not requiring to adopt the euro then please tell us about them rather than perpetuating this lie that you seem to be clinging to.

  14. Is this a doubling down from the ‘forced to join the euro’ conspiracy theory to ‘Soros plot’ conspiracy theory? Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
