Re: Tories in chaos

Anything that isn't behind a paywall? German isn't a problem.

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

No, they're not. A British citizen living outside the UK and with no income in the UK is not taxed by the UK.

This is precisely my situation, as a British citizen resident in Germany and earning...

According to Wikipedia, Germany, France, Greece, Italy, Lichtenstein, Luxembourg, Austria, Romania, Poland, Switzerland, Slovenia, the Czech Republic and Hungary all have complete or partial bans on...

Re: Tories in chaos

Judging by how wonderfully the Brexit wheeze is working out, perhaps it might be time for the UK to stop playing games and try a grown-up form of government for a change.

Re: My little corner of the world takes on the Catholic church

Watched Spotlight on DVD earlier this year. I can't comment on its factual accuracy, and the Catholic church's covering up of abuse is hardly anything new, so what was left for me was a very...

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

In fact, just like British politics has an adversarial approach to pretty much anything.

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

Why the inverted commas? Where else in the world is there a customs territory without a border around it to protect it?

This idea that border infrastructure is superfluous is ridiculous. It's like...

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

Still on the table, waiting for the UK to return to it after the dust has settled.

BoJo and his crew are incredibly naive.

Re: I don't really know where to put this

This is wrong, for two very big reasons.

Firstly, it's potentially grevious bodily harm. Even if the individual on the other end of the line is a criminal, it's still potentially grevious bodily...

Re: I don't really know where to put this

Yeah, some of them used to get really frustrated when I couldn't find the Windows icon (on my Linux desktop).

Now, I ask them if their parents are proud that their son has become a criminal.

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

Thanks for pointing that out. It's hardly comparable though, is it.

Personally, I think the opposition should allow Johnson to take the country out.

Firstly, three years on and they're all...

In that case, I look forward to the error of 1921 being corrected, with your vocal support.

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

Because the UK wanted, and still wants, the British border issue to be resolved as part of a subsequent free-trade agreement. How then could the EU propose a (permanent) solution to the issue,...

Re: I don't really know where to put this

A substantial part of the social and commercial infrastructure has moved online. That's not the whole story, but it's a big part of it. And it's not necessarily bad. It's also a largely unregulated...

He's right, I'm afraid, on everything except the fact that it's funny. It's tragic.

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

The united Ireland comment was also tongue in cheek. But it's far more likely than Irexit.

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

At present the UK is not asking for anything. It's demanding that the backstop be dropped before anything else is even discussed. The EU side has said that it welcomes new proposals from the UK.

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

This, you see, goes to the heart of the issue. You think of it as a problem shared by two sides who have to get together and resolve it.

It isn't. Brexit is the UK's problem, and the UK's problem...

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

Fair enough. Let's have a discussion between the two sides "over the next couple of years about a mechanism that can meet the GFA and keep the EU happy".

The EU would doubtless be amenable to...

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

UK will not change its position - "red lines".

EU will not change its position - "intransigent".

Conclusion: the UK is "special".
