I see unelected politicians have started the deselection process of Dominic Grieve. 400 odd tories in Beaconsfield are about to deselect perhaps the most intelligent MP in the UK.Jump to post
May now wants to have a fourth vote on the same thing, and is now threatening a general election. That’s really going to help things. A two year delay so the Tories can elect another silver spooned Eton clone, vs a man who hasn’t managed to demonstrate that the opposition are any better than perhaps...Jump to post

Define "bad deal". The CU option was only 8 votes short on a majority with DUP abstaining. If the DUP suddenly decides to agree to the CU model (which would also mean almost no border), then we would have a majority of 2 for the CU model. Is that a "bad deal"? Apparently not for...Jump to post
Today was Brexit day.
The British government still has no idea what they plan to do.
The emperor has no clothes.
With the backers now no longer backing the company, I expect airports to impound aircraft until owed charges are paid. Building a profitable hub airline in a tiny city is difficult. Attempting to have two hub airlines is suicide. With the exception of Air Europa (and potentially Virgin, and to some ...Jump to post
Meanwhile in the comments section of the daily mail article on Brexit idiots slowing down on the motorway, people love the suggestions that the army should take over parliament.
Seriously, UK is going to have a few months of pain.
For decades the UK government has blamed the EU parliament.
Now the government has blamed the UK parliament.
The emperor has no clothes.
Be gone UK. You deserve what you voted for.
I’m more than happy for the US to close all European bases. Their Arab spring strategy in the Mediterranean was a disaster. Whose strategy was that? BHO and HRC. Yes, Obama’s Arab strategy was a disaster. Libya - disaster, much less stable now Egypt - disaster, less stable now Syria - disaster, muc...Jump to post
It’s the bubble that is present in the House of Parliament - Eton boys (or

Let the UK commit economic suicide and leave the EU in a hard Brexit. I for one am sick and tired of the charades going on in London that has brought the whole of Europe to a halt for two years. The EU has better things to be doing than trying to keep two dozen silver spoon inbreds in a job. The EU...Jump to post
The US is in such debt as it allows the corrupt lobbying system to buy off politicians that vote for tax cuts and pork barrel spending on worthless projects. Lobbying has protected poorly run industries and duties further protect them. The best example of lobbying for me is US Chicken - standards ar...Jump to post
I see that that massive Brexit march from Sunderland was a huge success. About 100 turned up. Farage buggered off back to London rather than March as he said he would do.

“Boeing’s influence in Washington is vast.

Sometimes I wished I could have left my kids at an airport! . Hey, the UK's Prime Minister left his kid at a pub once. It was a classic "I thought you had her!" "No, I thought you had her!" situation. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-18391663 If only they had left her in the pub!Jump to post

it was actually Swissair that came up with that name.
