Default Friday night at 11-30



Time to celebrate.

Friday night I will be celebrating, with friends, the leaving of the E.U. Ironically we will be starting with a typical Basque meal in a typical Basque restaurant deep in French Basque country, The village of AInhoa; to be precise.

That I live in the Basque country is perhaps why I think it ironic that I will be celebrating leaving the E.U. not that the French Basques are particularly militant in that respect.

I shall be further helping the French economy by opening a bottle or two of Bordeaux’s finest and raising a glass to Boris Johnson for getting us out. Always assuming I will be still sober enough ; come 11.30 pm; I might even be able to give a roaring rendition of Rule Britannia!!

Anyway, I invite anyone with likewise feelings to also raise a glass with me, if not in person than in spirit, to the success of Britain in once again showing that democracy does exist and that the majority who voted to leave have, at last, gained their just victory.
Cheers!

What a sad post... Enjoy it all while you can KJMW.. Isn't there a tiny part of you that thinks it's a tad ironic that you are living in a country that is part of the EU? Don't you think you should in fact be packing your bags ... going back to the country you support,,and helping them through the really tough times ahead of them. Or doesn't that bit of 'Leaving the EU' actually appeal to you.?

Yeah, but he's "helping" the French economy by buying a bottle of Bordeaux (as if England is the reason it even exists).

And as manch says, the EU is going to suffer so badly after losing access to the world's biggest market, so he's certainly doing his civil part in supporting Europeans since they'll no longer have those gravy high paying English fruit picking jobs. But Europeans will just have to fend for themselves now. Sorry about that.

Fog, channel, continent, virtue.

In answer to your question, no not one tiny part thinks it ironic. The point you miss is that I am quite prepared , and always have been, to accept the rules and regulations of a foreign country. I do support my country, don't you? As for the 'tough times ahead' If you can predict the future; how about the winner at the next Grand National?

Won't be celebrating----it would be disagreeable to those with reasonable concerns over 'Leaving'.---- -it's just leaving a particular 'association', trade, migration both ways will still continue.

You have frequently criticised people like me for quoting press reports about India - on the basis that we don't live there or have thousands of relatives there, and therefore only you know what is true. Suggest you apply the same rule to yourself regarding other European Countries.

I thought it was Saturday night that was alright for fighting, rather than Friday?

"British flags in the EU institutions will be taken down by maintenance workers, out of office hours, with no cameras to record the moment."

It makes it sound like removing the trash...

I did consider hopping over to film the event (a two and a half hour drive each way).

I'm sure we could come up with some creative things to project onto the walls of No.10, or indeed anywhere
