They're having a really good discussion on BBC News about this at the moment where they're making a lot of solid points I think.

You surprise me.

I'm sure I remember you previously telling us you were vehemently opposed to the EU on principle since birth.

Sigh.
How many languages do you speak? I bet that German news is pretty exciting. You probably wouldn't know if they're reporting Brexit or bookings for Oktoberfest 2020, but exciting just the same. After all, you're probably the least knowledgeable expert on anything outside the UK I've ever had the unfortunate experience of being exposed to.

So, I put on Kabel eins, nothing. Sat1, nothing. ZDF, nothing. RTL, nothing. RBB, nothing. But I found a 1 min segment on DW, if that helps.

OK, turning to Canal 24 (Spain), a brief mention. TV3, nothing. RTVE, nothing (but I didn't wait for long). Antena 3, nothing.

Yep, looks like its all over the airwaves. Not.

​​​​​​​Nobody gives a shit, manch. Face it. And people know if you're worldly. You're not. Put it in a bag. You're busted.

Or doesn't that bit of 'Leaving the EU' actually appeal to you.?
Exactly!!!!!

I am. What I'm not opposed to is free trade areas. I'm not sure why the EU ever had to be anything more than one of those really. I'm opposed to what the EU represents in 2020.

Okay, feel better now you've got it off your chest? It convinces me my latest assumption of lost and forlorn posters was correct.

I am at this moment looking at a Brexit Special on France 24 in English. Turn it on and see for yourself.

Maybe DG you should remind yourself how the EU arose, Schumann 1950, as a starting point?

So when you say it's all over European news, you mean it's on news stations in Europe catering to English speakers. Or perhaps Brits.

Whereas ami's list not broadcasting it are in the native language....except for DW which is a German broadcaster of English language programmes.

Do you see a connection?

​​​​​​I believe you. I also watch France 24. Balanced, unbiased, serving the English audience.

You said it was all over "European TV" it isn't. It's on France 24.

Go to bed Manch. Tomorrow's another day to spew more insular "want to believes".

There was no Brexit coverage on UK TV until half an hour ago.

Okay. I have seen Spanish, German, Dutch and French news this evening and Brexit has been main news. Every station was in native language. Now you are going to try and catch me out by asking can I speak these languages? The word Brexit was all over the news on these stations with many reporters reporting from London.

I am still looking at France 24 direct from Paris. It is a Brexit Special.

OK, but you're watching something different than Europe is (or making it up, or presuming Europe watches France 24 in English). It's a one minute news segment over here. Little more. Sorry I've wasted my time proving you wrong. But you're really busted now. Go to bed.

Are you crazy? What the hell are you rambling about? France 24 is a Brexit Special. I am watching it now. What one minute news segment. Blimey, you have really lost it. You just keep posting this nonsense to me and get it off your chest. I don't mind. Apart from making a fool of yourself you are confirming my recent assumption re forlorn posters is most definitely correct. In your case, anyhow.

With less than a minute to go, it's time to stop arguing, and Time... To Say... Goodbye.
