Re: No income tax without a second vote

There’s like 300 non-Mandarin languages spoken in China. More people with an other language than the population of the USA IIRC. When I lived in Singapore, they were called dialects (or at least the 5 big ones were). There might be 5 main dialects of Mandarin, but there is no way something like Uyg...

Re: BREXIT

JRM now identifying the Irish government as the “main culprit” for no deal. Problem the ERG et al now have is that No Deal is the default. When your schtick is based on complaining about whatever happens knowing that you’ll never have to deliver or take responsibility for, and then it actually comes...

Re: Leave win referendum but Remain triumph. What next?

Where’s the line where it tips over into “what people voted for”? Just not being a member of the EU? Not being in the EEA? Not being in the ECHR? No deal? No right to remain?

Re: Now what's going to happen.

Think she likely wins the vote today, but then what will the DUP and the ERG do if a no confidence vote is called? Only chance they have is to force an election.

Re: Now what's going to happen.

Not sure why she is facing this vote. She won a vote in 2016, that means she is Tory leader for ever now as I understand it. These anti-democrat traitors are subverting the will of the people by sending these letters in.

Re: How do we judge the draft Brexit deal?

None of the leavers have the slightest intention of getting actuallly involved in Brexit, they might have to deliver something then. The entire schtick is based on overpromising, then criticising when it’s not delivered. Whatever happens they won’t own the outcome. Goes badly? Not hard enough. Goes ...

Re: Cabinet agrees Brexit agreement

Brexit may well end up increasing immigration. What are countries going to ask for in exchange for opening their services sectors where we have an economic advantage? Visas. Lots of visas. India wanted, what, 100K per year?

Re: Trump

It got them the largest ever winning margin. One that looks set to get bigger as GM and other industrials close down more plants in the Midwest, and Trump pushes for an oil price cut when the US might start to export in real volume again. The states that swung to Trump look to have moved decisively ...

Re: Does the EU want a hard brexit?

I am intrigued why now - with a deal agreed that will effectively emasculate the UK for years to come the French and Spanish have revealed their future intentions of using the UK's desire to negotiate a FTA with the EU to basically blackmail the UK. Whether you believe this a legitimate tactic or n...

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.

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?

Furthermore the yield is higher although HSBC has said the dividend will be held at least for this year ...

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.

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.
