Perhaps the UK could manufacture a lower useful dose from the Brazilion ones.

The 'article' (term used loosely) claimed the peelable dildos came from Colombia, if that makes any difference.

I had originally made a poor attempt at a joke about those stories you hear about huge spiders arriving in crates of fruit, coupled with good old-fashioned British tabloid sensationalism. Turned out I'd guessed correctly :D

Pardon my hyperbole. I just really ****ing hate bananas. There aren't a lot of foods I don't like, but they just straight up make me gag every time I smell them :sick:

Is that a euphamism? :p

:lol: no.

Shit thing is, my daughter loves them and she has a habit of waving them in my face because she knows I don't like them. One of these days I'm going to be sick on her and it will all end in tears.

They grow excellent bananas and avocado pears on Madeira and pineapples, yams and tea in the Azores - amongst many other things in both cases.

However that was an EU lawyer I wonder what happens post Brexit

Luckily most revenue is earned outside the EU and thus is not taxable.

I guess post-Brexit, Gibraltar won't have recourse to the ECJ and Westminster will be able to say "No means No" or "Tax means Tax" or something. That's what taking Back Control is all about, as far as I can tell.

Who did you think you'd be able to go to to complain about this sort of bullying?

Is the ECJ part of the EU?

Thank you

So the following will be consigned to the history books after brexit

But the advocate general to the European Court of Justice (ECJ), Maciej Szpunar, “takes the view that, for the purposes of the freedom to provide services, Gibraltar and the UK are to be treated as one entity,” the court said in a statement.

They must be among the mass uncontrolled lot then. The last thing you want is a bunch of avocados clogging up the roads.
