Re: Chequers goes pop.....

By the way, the reason why Norway are prepared to pay money into the EU is because they have an overall trade surplus with the EU. We on the other hand have a large overall trade deficit with the EU. The EU should be paying us for access to the UK market, not the other way round! Owen. I have point...

Re: Chequers goes pop.....

4 Labour MP's kept May's government afloat... and she cheated. Lib Dem Jo Swinson was "paired" with Tory chairman Brandon Lewis so she could be at home with her baby son during the Trade Bill vote. This should mean neither MP votes so their absences cancel each other out. But Mr Lewis did...

Re: MP quits 'hard left' Labour party

I agree with Lootman. By common usage, if you conflate two issues, the implication is that they are not that closely related. That is why we have dictionaries. I used the OED for the definition. If you speak another language then you can use words to have a different definition. However, conflate m...

The whole point about the formation of Israel was that it was a 'safe haven' for Jews, just like every other religion has. It is fre...

Re: Raab to flood businesses with ‘no-deal’ Brexit advice

I'd love to be a fly on the wall of his first meeting with Barnier. I am not sure why. Raab is less likely to pander and flatter Barnier, and more likely to play hardball. I think it is a very encouraging sign that Raab is regarding "no deal" as a viable option because, truthfully, it alw...

Re: VW dpf - plea for advice

My son's Golf GTI (done just over 100,000 miles, and averaging 40 miles/day normal commuting), has been diagnosed as having a blocked dpf, because it is mucking up one of the sensors, apparently. He has been quoted £1400 to replace, or £800 to clean the existing dpf. Is cleaning 100% guaranteed? Wi...

Re: Sovereignty from the Horses Mouth!..

There is no United States of Europe and no foreseeable prospect of one coming into existence anytime soon since all EU member states have vetoes on the treaty changes which would be required and many would oppose such a move. The EU is a group of independent nations co-operating on issues of mutual...

Re: Sovereignty from the Horses Mouth!..

Remember many Brexiteers start from the position that the EU is the spawn of Satan and hence fit the facts to come to that conclusion. No, we simply start from the point of preferring to be an independent nation - cooperating on issues of mutual interest - rather than part of the United States of E...

Re: May admits there may be no Brexit at all in threat to Brexiteers

My expectation is that if we start getting close to no deal that the redundancy processes will start as they take time. It will not all start happening suddenly on 29th April 2019. I thought we had discredited project fear pages ago? If I was head of one of the companies which has threatened the Br...

Re: May admits there may be no Brexit at all in threat to Brexiteers

DD (and he should know) says May's plan isn't Brexit, and never will be:

But we knew that anyway. May has always been a Remainer.
