Thanks for feedback. I will see what they say when we go in tomorrow. Interestingly on the first letter that came with the initial booking it said "pleased to enclose confirmation from tour operator and your ATOL certificate" - can't find this! Latest letter just says "pleased to encl...Jump to post
Earlier in the year we clubbed together to buy my Niece a trip to Eurodisney for 2 (package including FLYbe flights and hotel accommodation.

What routes could DL realistically add (especially in this climate) or take over from KE to balance things out? Completely hand over SEA-ICN to DL? Transfer over a few LAX-ICN frequencies? To start with they could take over all the ICN-ATL and LHR-ATL flying Would this not then break the agreement ...Jump to post
So if you take the current UK GDP of 2.21 Trillion as base and lose the growth the treasury predicts we could lose you are looking at somewhere between £108,290,000,000 (4.9%) £148,070,000,000 (6.7%) growith or more if and when the GDP increases? Could you attribute it to the correct person, please...Jump to post
Of course, you can’t put a number on it as its impossible for them to estimate what way the economy will move if we remained or left, that’s why it’s a myth its theoretical and cannot be proven right or wrong. Even treasury was estimating that trading with the EU on a CETA type deal might cost the ...Jump to post
Have not flown yet but booked for later in the year. If i have to wear a mask I will wear a mask.

When we were visiting Florida some years ago we went to a show with Dinner. Dinner was awful, service was sloppy (staff just shoved trays of food in front of you).

It sounds like you have bought an Air France ticket and if that's the case, it is Air France's responsibility to put you on a new flight and if that is not possible to offer you reimbursement. If your ticket number starts with the 057 prefix you should be safe. Yes, though it may be a different air...Jump to post

Horrible. I’m worried about the $1000 root canal I just had. Welcome to America.
I saw a tweet posted somewhere earlier supposedly from Donald Trump regarding Obama wanting a war / conflict with Iran in 2011 as elections were due.
I that were True then (and I have not been able to verify it) then could the same apply now?
Interesting and potentially very dangerous times ahead
Gutted is the only word I can think of. Thomas Cook has been part of my travels for the best part of the last 35 years. You really have to feel for the the staff that have lost their jobs.

It's a difficult time and I hope for the best. Thomas Cook has been a feature on the high street of every place I have lived and it will be sad if it goes.

Now put the actual conversation in context to the events leading up to referenda, what happened post referenda is another matter entirely.

Proroguing goes against Parliamentary sovereignty but you have said (as a last resort) that you would accept this - surely double standards or should sovereignty only be respected when it suits?

Timed fuse on the GFA?????? That is exactly the demand by the Leave hardliners that's preventing the WA to be ratified in the Commons at this point because the EU won't accept that timed fuse on the GFA.

With regards to suspening parliament or refusing to table bills to ensure MP's cannot have a say i have often thought for the fanatical "Brexit at any cost" crowd the democracy is their percived end point - it does not necessarily need to be part of the process as long as Brexit is achievedJump to post
Well, it is how you look at it. The US has always been our closest friend and ally. That is how we can see it. You may want to pooh pooh it as we seem them as closer friends than the EU nations, but thats how it is. And long I hope it continues. It is the way you look at it, you can't speak for the...Jump to post

It seems to me that: 1) Whenever a "brexit solution" is debunked as a myth - it is replaced by another (mainly unfounded one) 2) Exponents of a hard brext want sovereignty and democracy as a result of leaving the EU - they do not want it to be part of the act of leaving. 3) What was promis...Jump to post
GIven that the UK parliament has already rejected no deal (albeit not legally binding) how is the next PM going to make sure that Parliament has no furhter say.

All talk about the 2 votes we have already have is pointless. The only vote we held on the EU was the 2016 one.

One thing the confuses me:
How on earth can TM say to the EU she can get through an unchanged (as EU will not change) deal given that:
It has been defeated twice
No one likes it
Bercow will not allow it given there is no change

Imagine that, a party that hardly anyone votes for, gets a degree of power. Not very democratic is it.
FPTP suits the UK just fine. We had a referendum a few years back, and just like the EU, most of us rejected it.
