    And And?
  2. Brexit 2017

    Yes, l have described it twice and do not propose doing so a third time. Ask the head of the CBI who called it "not necessarily a bad thing" (suck it up peasants I'm doing well out of it) or leader of the remain campaign David Cameron "A price worth paying" (because I'm not paying it).
  3. Brexit 2017

    I've brought it up a couple of times so may as well set it up to be ignored again. The downward pressure upon wages. Poles doing skilled work for unskilled pay.
  4. Festive Hamster

    All credit to Slartibartfast the photogenic hamster.
  5. Brexit 2017

    Nope, the EU does not allow member states to make individual deals.
  6. Puzzling Alternator bulb question?

    For lots of alternators the lamp is switched by the regulator and plays no part in excitation.
  7. Brexit 2017

    Is this the EU army that was never going to happen?
  8. Brexit 2017

    All that money promised away by our europhile masters over the years. Now the bill we would always have had to pay because it was promised on behalf of as it turned out, a minority has fallen due and exposed the shocking costs of EU membership. Get this into your head, that money is the cost of membership not the cost of leaving. If the vote had been for remain it would still have been paid but no one would have told you about it and more and more billions would have been promised on and on into the future. It's your bill, cheers for that.

    A debt run up during membership by promises to the EU by remainer governments over the years. Stopping this sort of outflow of cash to Europe is part of the point, this millstone around our necks is entirely consequent upon membership and only the timing of payment may be altered by leaving. In future we can spend the money on our own priorities, like the NHS.
  10. A Different twist on an old charging question

    The rubber caps are quite usual and with no wire connected I believe it defaults to hi.
  11. Brexit 2017

    Not spin, just drawing a distinction. I am well aware of what the EU means by the term and that is rejected by the referendum result. The point is that in terms of people how hard a border do you need? Take away the right to work and people can continue to come and go as consumers.

    I don't see a problem with free movement of people, like the two way cross channel shopping for instance. So long as there is not the freedom of movement of LABOUR let them visit as much and as long as they like.
  13. Brexit 2017

    It astonished me how many people during the campaign were warning that leave would mean crashing out of the single market and the customs union, then immediately after the vote claiming that the voters never meant to leave the single market.
  14. Brexit 2017

    It's worth making the point that the however many billion bill is not the cost of leaving, it's costs agreed as a member and would have been paid if the vote had been for remain. If anything it highlights the price of membership.
  15. London Boat prices and sellers expectations

    I remember some kid swinging out from the vertical pole on the platform of the school bus to jump off as it was still doing a damned good running speed and met a pillar box.
