Damn, I hadn't realised latex gloves aren't manufactured anywhere else in the world!

Man on @Channel4News just now, voted Brexit, then bought a retirement home in Spain, didn’t realise he’d lose HIS freedom of movement, wishes he could vote again, Remain this time.

- Do you think you might have shot yourself a bit in the foot.

- A bit. Yeah.

My EU passport holding brother and his English partner retired to Spain last Summer. Haven't communicated much with them since but appears she has the right to stay now. Don't know the specifics.

Again, sorry that this hardly supports the hysterical doomsday narrative.

You do know that brexit hasn't happened yet, robbin? Inflation is dropping or holding station across the globe at present, not sure how anyone could interpret those figures as either indicating a positive or negative outcome.

"Don't jump in the sea with all your clothes on sir, you'll get unpleasantly wet."

"Well, I think you'll find that it's only five minutes before the time at which I plan to jump into the sea with all my clothes on, and I'm dry as a bone. Therefore your contention that jumping in the sea will get me wet is entirely invalid."

I understand your point, Rendel, but I think that's rather missing the point of Bloomberg's article.

There have been posts on here that have complained about substantial and inexorable increases in inflation in the UK. This latest news shows that to be a misstatement of the facts.

No deal here we come! I think that may be the plan.

Goddard arrested again - surely as he's likely to re offend they shouldn't be allowing bail.

So if EU offered passports for a reasonable price (say £5K) who would consider it ?

It's £600K at the moment I gather smiling smiley OK for billionaires.

WTO application rejected.

We can still trade but it's like a grinder slowly taking away everything.

I think there’s certainly a lot of people who want a No Deal. There’s this image of us being this plucky little nation that always punched above its weight, and anyone who expresses concern is told they’re ‘talking down the country’.

There’s certainly a narrative being pushed in social media and parts of the press that the EU is bullying us and refusing to be reasonable. Personally I think it’s far more that the U.K. went into this far too early and has made a hash of it. I’m very uncomfortable with the way the groundwork has already been laid for the idea that this is STILL all the fault of the EU, and that we’d have a great deal if it wasn’t for those pesky kids in Brussels. I’m also really not sure I buy this narrative of there being lots of Remain voters who have decided that because of how the EU have ‘treated us’ We should go for No Deal, like they’ve had some kind of Damascene conversion.

I believe the ERG has wanted No Deal all along, as has the DUP, and a lot of the public simply believes either it’ll be ok in the end, and/or the medium term pain will be worth it.

I guess we’ll see...

That's because we've always pulled through in the past but they might get a shock. I'm beginning to give up on stopping it and just preparing an looking at what options to take when it hits (I wish I could get that Irish passport smiling smiley ).

Anyway the Dutch have a Brexit monster character now.
