    Default World beating success!



    It has taken our Government four years to achieve this, at the price of the collapse of our economy, the probable break up of the United Kingdom and the division of the nation into two groups who barely tolerate each other.

    But hey, our local Republicans are still in power!

    We could probably send some frozen lamb and beef over if you want it.
    Now, where did we put the Dunedin.

    That just proves the whole thing is a scam to divide and conquer. If the bastards in charge were actually concerned about sovereignty, there is no way they would go this route.

    1945 the Germans were forced by the Allies to clean up their Nazi past. The majority of Germans then was not interested at all in doing this. But fortunately they weren't in a position to prevent it. Now after decades Germany slowly faces the murders, crimes and atrocities of its colonial past (until 1918) - which were not on the same scale - but were nevertheless murders, crimes and atrocities.

    Some countries are seeing only glorious things when they look back at their past.

    Boris Johnson is “an unrepentant and inveterate liar” who feels he is not subject to the same rules as others, Sylvie Bermann, the former French ambassador to the UK during the Brexit vote, says in a new book.

    She also claims some Brexiters are consumed with hatred for Germany and gripped by a myth that they liberated Europe on their own, describing Brexit as a triumph of emotion over reason, won by a campaign full of lies in which negative attitudes to migration were exploited by figures such as Johnson and Michael Gove.

    We already knew that Boris tells porkies. He was sacked by the Times for making up a quote, and went on to tell porkies about the EU when recruited by the Torygraph.

    It looks like half of the people got what they wanted and half did not.

    If life gets better, I am sure many will claim it is despite Brexit rather than because of Brexit.

    There is always the option of emigrating or revolution.
    Life is complex.

    On the basis that apart from the closet racists no one who voted to leave knew what they were voting for, you may be right.

    I am becoming German, or at least a German resident, with my own German company. I have a German motorcycle, a German laptop, a German girlfriend, and a German set of friends. Soon I will ask you all to call me Wolfgang Ludwig Helmut Payer-Huber Schmidt III.

    Andrew, do you have a Venn diagram for the economic -political / trade agreement groups the UK DOES belong to?

    Martin - I am not good at mathematics but I think that there is no way to draw a Venn diagram where there is no group.

    Well, you sure showed them!

    Don’t the Tories insist you’ll still get the same trade terms as if you were still in the EU? I always laugh when I hear that little live of “Tinkerbell lives!” legerdemain.
