A long overdue relief and one which can only be bettered by the removal of Schäuble from his membership of the group, which I sincerely hope will happen later this year :)

Be careful what you wish for :nod:

According to the front page headline of Dicks bible, we leave the EU on the 29th March.
The sad thing is that Express readers and Dick will believe it.

Hasn't worked out too well on the things I could vote for.

Not that I can recall voting on the "winning" side often (or ever, possibly?), which is why it pees me off so much when what I did vote for when possible constantly cops the blame for everything that's supposedly gone wrong.

I hope you turn out to be right on that but I fear it won't pan out that way.

That's the trouble with democracy - lots of people people are free to disagree with what is self-evident to you.

Weren't you on the winning side in electing Jerzza then?

Be sure to let the Norwegians know about your Leave campaign right wing think tank findings, Dick.

Norway outside the EU yet paying a small fortune for single market access, what bloody idiots they are.

They may be idiots but they are happy idiots ;)

We probably will leave the EU on March 29. That it will be March 29, 2019 (or beyond) is neither here nor there ...

British banks handled vast sums of laundered Russian money
