Meh, there'll just be a new one to take its place, resplendent with whining about 'victimization' and 'mods out of control'. Better the devil you know, etc.

I hate to agree with you here, but I think you're right ...

OK... Maybe more like a cross between Monty Python and something "reality" TV, like Benefits street?

The moron was on Sky news the other night , he even made their usual DM correspondent look like a genius.

Unlikely, he doesn't appear to read anything else 🤦‍♂️

So is Germany by the way. Blimey! the whole bloody continent is full of 'em. Come to think of it, the whole world is full of foreigners! No wonder you're so afraid, cowering defensively on your little island of imaginary empire that all those despicable corrupt lefty dicktatership foreigners are determined to sabotage for no apparent reason. And they talk funny. Can't even spell English, or the names of cartoon characters.

Priceless 👍😂

Oh I wouldn't put it quite that way.

Le Pen loses ground to Macron in French election race

Too late. Populist fad is going out of fashion. Britain England already bought the purple & yellow dress though. Oh well, she'll just have to wear it to the party and hope nobody notices. Nobody expects much anyway.

IMF following WTO raise estimates for global growth for 2017,18.
Reasons given buoyant US economy and continuing improvement in the EU,Eurozone.
Good news for UK exporters.
Still tariff free into the EU until at least 2019.

I'm sure there is a message here.

Meanwhile, it seems May called the snap elections with little time to spare:

Brexit latest: Retail sales volumes fall at fastest quarterly rate in seven years

Sales were down 1.4 per cent, the biggest decline since the first quarter of 2010 when they fell 2 per cent

Hopefully, it won't go too far before June. I suppose they could always have the BoE dump even more money into the economy to prop it up until they've won the elections.

Yes, there is! The same message the anti-EU brigade has been ignoring for the last 40+ years. That when a vote doesn't go your way, it doesn't mean it's over.

The EU has done a massive amount of good for all EU countries (Greece wasn't solely the EU's fault), and while there are things that need reforming, leaving the EU isn't the way to guide it in the right direction.

The UK could have had much more influence in the EU but chose to take as many opt-outs as they could. I'd suggest that was partly because although the UK wanted to be in the EU, they also didn't want to seen to be too close in case it disrupted the 'special relationship' with the US. Though the US also wanted us in the EU so they had a friendly face at the table who could represent the interests behind the scenes.

Britain warned that Brexit will be vetoed unless the rights of EU citizens in the UK are protected.
