I don't see how one can agree with something that wasn't said

We'll have to wait and see how much of the principles of the transformation and democratisation of the past few years survives the leadership changes, and what sort of change of policy might arise as a result.

On a domestic flight I don't see why not, there again depends which country you are in and what the rules are. Is it in carry on baggage or checked baggage or have you just bought a bacon sandwich past the pre security check?

We're going to Europe on hols. We don't want to be subjected to substandard food.

What isn't over?

All I said was the previous leader was finished. That's it. But as we know by now (don't we? ), it isn't the leader of the party who has sole control over party policy. Or do you not agree with that?

(Although I at least have a reasonable amount of confidence that the new Labour leader will know what his party policy is, unlike the leader of the governing party, whose pronouncements seem frequently to be at odds with his).

Oh, dear. It seems as Brexit takes its toll on Europe, it won't be possible to even get whisky, pork pies or cheese over there. Looking pretty bad now.

I predicted this years ago. We're considering cancelling the trip. My family's health is more important than the authentic Spanish culture experience of Benidorm.

Stilton, whisky and pork pies become the next Brexit battleground
