Re: Business Reality verses Project Fear

That’s not what the S-H question was about, the Danish king was also the Duke for several hundred years. It was about differences in the status of the fiefdoms and the difference in Salic and Danish law as it then pertained to them as either integral Danish or German territories.

Re: EU draft withdrawal agreement

There are moves to increased co-operation between EU member states' armed forces however this is NOT an EU army. It's only taken 8 months for the president of France to undermine your view https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-46108633 France's Macron pushes for 'true European army' That’s not wh...

Re: Parcel Bombs USA

More right wing violence again today with a synagogue getting shot up. Trump’s immediate response is to suggest they needed “protection” in there despite the shooter injuring several armed policemen.

Re: What price is HSBC a buy?

I bought some more the other day with accumulated dividends when it dipped below £7. To answer simoan, Lloyds is a pure UK play whereas HSBC has exposure worldwide and particularly the Far East. Furthermore the yield is higher although HSBC has said the dividend will be held at least for this year ...

Re: Trump triumphs again: 4% US growth

They are probably anticipating the moaning about debt they’ll get when they get back in after the Republicans have blown it out by 21% in a year after years of reductions.

Re: Crashing out of the EU with no deal?

It wasn’t a popular uprising, because one wasn’t needed. James had no real support and couldn’t muster enough support to oppose William. If he had beaten Williams army in the field there may well have been an uprising as he was very unpopular and there was already rioting going on in a lot of large ...

What did the ERG expect? They’ve pretty much forced this. If I was more cynical I would say they wanted the backstop in place.

Re: Chequers goes pop.....

Love the way that the man warning about “socialist votes” last week actively courted and then relied on Labour rebels to pass his amendment. I think May has only three options really, drop the mic and walk off stage leaving someone else to deal with this, general election as this parliament clearly ...

Re: Boris resigns

I see the remainers are out in force again and by implication still insulting the 17.4 million people who wanted to take back control of their country. I wonder how many of them would have given up the money and perks of a Cabinet Minister? All talk! I can still never understand why anyone that lov...

A shockingly poor tenure as Foreign Secretary made Ben worse by the cowardly opportunism of his exit. God help us all if he challenges for the leadership and wins.

Re: The Job of Brex part deux: £350m worth

I'm wondering about the timing of this and the fact that there is no clarity on where the money will come from. Could it be that May is planning for a general election in the near future either because she thinks she might lose a confidence vote or that she has decided to risk it all by calling one...

Re: Brexit: parts of UK manufacturing 'at risk of extinction', CBI says

It has become obvious that extremist Brexiteer sentiment, as expressed so often on here, does not reflect the views of the people (leavers or remainers) - indeed such sentiment is now being revealed as not caring whether the ordinary fellow citizen suffers significant hardship and poverty as long a...
