Don't you understand this is really bad for business?

and this "vocal minority" you speak of, are the UK media.
And what is your reaction if one of your employees decides to tear up a contract with your Germans because he and 52 % of your employees don't like the Germans ? Remember : NO moaning allowed !
No worries though, your employee will find a new shiny costumer in Botswana !

Maybe it’s just the summer weather, but I catch the scent of public attitudes shifting. But real change will require opposition politicians stepping forward and providing principled leadership.
Yes, step forward, will you.......somebody, anybody ?

Bojo being discussed by Davis in House of Lords at the moment


Hmmm, non event, avoided answering '' A la Mayhem ''

He did sort of say that it is very difficult to explain facts to Europe because they are a bit thick

Yup - the Norwegian model. You know - the one Farage suggested in the run-up to the referendum.

Could it be that Brexit doesn't actually mean we just leave everything - that there are some bits (maybe lots) of the EU/UK relationship that are worth negotiating?

Don't you think - for instance that our position in things like Euratom and the Galileo project are worth preserving?

Maybe it's just a bit less simple than you're thinking.

Wrong - it's wider than just the media - get it?

Brexit is not your company, and I am not one of it's employees. Try firing me for being anti-Brexit......

By the way, the EU referendum was non-binding and advisory.

An American writes something I agree with - woohoo!

At the end of the day, the Yanks would never dream of being a member of an EU-like group, so why do they think we should be?

Like the EU, America is a major continental power. Quite different animal than a little island off the coast.
