Everyday…

…we get more evidence of the hardship that Brexit is causing to ex-pats reliant on sterling incomes. Today we heard from our friend Fynne in Greece. Poor thing! But he did vote, in fact, to make himself poor as well as everyone one else back in Britain.

Cheers,

Mmmm… this is one of the benefits of using the same currency of course… reduced transaction costs.


#2892

Let’s hope for the best for our friend @fynne that there is no “no deal” Brexit that sends sterling into a major crash. I wouldn’t like to see him resorting to a Greek foodbank.

Well… with no deal… then Residency can be withdrawn in 2020… anything can happen then.


#2894

When you look at Brexit it was these “Patriots” that caused all this shame. now they are leaving.

#2896

I see that sterling has bobbed under 1.08 euros again. Trend is still down.

Britannia incapable of ruling the waves

In an email sent to the BBC in error, it is clear that DEFRA is worried about whether the UK has the capacity to patrol its fishing grounds:

Perhaps it will be helpful if Scotland and NI eventually secede from the UK as it will make patrolling the English fishing grounds more do-able?

A definition of delusion…failure to realise that you’re part of the problem but not part of the solution.

A ‘Unity’ government is doomed to failure…Dominic will be happy and has probably factored that into the algorithms of Cambridge Analytica.

Funnily enough the 3 words that give the location for Boris Johnson are:

  1. Brexit
  2. Balls
  3. Up

Arron Banks really is a scum-bucket.


#2901

Of course, Thunberg is very much brighter than the Boneheaded Right-wing knuckledragging Climate change deniers, including Banks, Farage and The Groper.

Good luck to Greta in her mission. She speaks for many of us.

Well worth a read on the Brexit Party and their views on Climate Change. What a bunch of arses.


Farage has a history of spreading misinformation about climate science, of which DeSmog has kept track over the years. He told an interviewer in 2013: “I’m all for pollution controls but to obsess with carbon dioxide, which as I understand it, is a perfectly natural occurring phenomenon, strikes me as strange.”

Farage has also called wind energy “the biggest collective economic insanity I’ve seen in my entire life.” That would be the cheapest source of new power, along with solar, energy experts now say.

Under his watch, UKIP’s 2015 and 2017 general election manifestos pledged to rip up green measures, including a promise to repeal the UK’s Climate Change Act, withdraw from the Paris Agreement and spur on fracking.

On the day of the Brexit Party launch, Farage told BBC Radio 4 there was “no difference between the Brexit party and UKIP in terms of policy,” which gives an indication of where the Brexit Party stands on climate change.

Everyday…

…companies report how Brexit is damaging their businesses. We can be sure that if they are being damaged so are the livelihoods of their staff.

My guess is that a Unity government led by Ken Clarke as PM and Harriet Harman as his deputy would stand a chance of getting sufficient Parliamentary support…assuming that Corbyn doesn’t have a tantrum because he didn’t get what he wanted (to be PM himself).

A Unity government is guaranteed to stop ‘No’ deal Brexit (as far as I can tell) but may be difficult to get support. I believe it could also be formed quite late, with a ‘No’ confidence vote circa 2 weeks before the 31st October cliff edge.


#2907

You could email Corbyn to urge him to stand aside in the national interest.

Any normal person I probably would…but this is Corbyn we are talking about. He has shown that he doesn’t change his mind. The Labour anti-semitic issue and 2nd referendum debate rather proves that.

I suppose I could sign my email ‘Vladimir Putin’ and he might take more interest in it :wink:


#2909

I think if enough people do it, it has an impact. Of course JC doesn’t see them personally but his office does.
