There are no fecund immigrants.

Rent subsidies for people living in Chelsea come from the local authority's budget. Wolverhampton is not in the same local authority area.

I don't know. I don't even know if what you claim is true (sounds like the uniquely English TV programme "benefits street").

Anyway, what does this have to do with the EU? If Britain chooses to pay to house the poor in Chelsea, I don't believe this has anything to to with any EU mandate. It's probably not even true. But I'll humour you.

Mine too.
You see, in a transparent 21st Cent. democracy, there's no need to consult anyone if you can't agree something......:confused: :confused: :confused:

Article 50 has been declared and approved, so we will be leaving - that has already been approved. The terms of the leaving have not, because the government has been unable to produce any.

It's not inevitable. A50 is revocable according to Lord Kerr (who wrote it), Macron and Merkel among others.

I suppose this comment makes me a Remainiac. So be it.

Stand by for shouts of "traitor to the people".

There has been the odd time I might have considered calling you a condescending Geordie.;)
Its funny about several pages back on this thread I mentioned that as he was on Power and Politics and said there is nothing in Article 50 that stops the UK from taking back the letter before the 2 year period to leave expires.
I even posted the link to Article 50 and nobody would answer that query.
I also have a feeling that this will happen but Im staying in Canada so it doesn't really affect me.

More like all the Brexiteers realise what they've done, are embarrassed about the whole sorry affair and are keeping their heads down.

There again some might be saying whats the point of this thread we voted Yes and if all goes to plan the UK leaves the EU on 29 March 2019 at 11pm so no need to contribute to the thread.;)

You'd think they'd be keen on converting all these Remoaning Remainiacs to their cause, this being a debating forum after all.

Plenty of womenfolk in the Remain camp on here, not sure 'circle jerk' to be an entirely accurate simile !

Inflation hits 3 %, that's costs going up in a straight line.
Sterling falls.
Hardly a circle.
