I was pushing back on the usual boring strawman of "anti-foreigner", not anything that disproves my argument.
After all we are but mere Prolls, carbon units, intellectual pygmies compared to him.
I am surprised you did not realise that.
We should be gratefull that he even demeans himself to read our posts 🤣🤣🤣
Can't argue with that, very true.

He is a good laugh. Never seen a speaker that enjoys the pantomime of parliament quite so much.

Yes who knows on cars. Roll out in two years, mass deployment in 5-10 are current estimates. I think the larger employment risk in the UK is automated back office, call centre and retail functions. Already happening, but likely to accelerate significantly. Bringing the EU membership issue into the analysis is too big a question to analyse (at least in the short term).

No idea why Wales voted leave; Scotland voted remain and is small enough and internationalist enough to know the world does not revolve around them.

Nope, I agree with Annette, and I started this thread! Primary discussion is POLITICS.

Breaking news, Dr Fox signed a continuity EU trade agreement with Fiji and Papua New Guinea today, fantastic news for anyone who takes sugar in their tea and palm oil consumers.

Best suggestion I have heard today was one coming out of the EU.
The UK can take as long as it likes to come up with a proposal that will get a decent majority in the UK.

We can all sleep well in our beds tonight knowing just what a boost for the UK economy Mr Foxup is proving to be.

Am I one of the only Brits on here thinking that Brits living in the UK and the Government they elected couldn't organize a piss up in a brewery?

You can imagine it

We have all been working extremely hard for the last 6 months and met our targets and in appreciation, the Management team would like to reward all the workers by organizing a free trip with food and transportation to a brewery. Please send us your suggestions. Several days later an email goes out we have chosen X brewery on X date.

How many emails back saying why did you choose that brewery or who decided, why that date and not this date, why did you choose that bus company and not this one etc etc etc.

I was thinking of the 38% of Scots who voted leave - almost 4 out 10 of them - those ones.
