  1. Brexit: The fallout

      It is also looming large if there is a second Brevit referendum.   Should Scotland go first? Some may claim they were misled first.   How misled is misled?    Terrible situation.
  2. British Citizens Rights No Deal Brexit

      Is she /he not currently with AOK?   I do not know about this at all. Just my impression from the relevant posts.
  3. British Citizens Rights No Deal Brexit

      please see above.
  4. Why are you unhappy today?

    As well as not knowing the maturity of the child, we do not know the social setting this has been suggested.    In my experience, people who claim to be left at home alone practically from birth either live in the middle of nowhere and were basically locked in the house or actually had a responsible adult somewhere in the vicinity to call upon in case of uncertainty.
  5. Brexit: The fallout

      I think the 35 quid for not leaving the airport for the dubious pleasure of changing planes at an UK airport is the most shocking.    I nearly fell of my chair when a colleague told me this. Sadly for them a connecting flight with BA was still the cheapest option by a mile so an alternative could not be justified.

      That would be a great relief I think for the people submitting applications to the Peoples Republic of Pankow. 
  7. Brexit: The fallout

    Greg Dyke mentioned on a Sky news panel show yesterday evening (The Pledge?) that there are conspiracy theories making the rounds that Mrs May and her supporters actually triggered the leadership contest themselves to clear the way for a year of internal hassle free government.    I did wonder the same thing but thought it was too tin foil hat even for me. Would explain JRM throwing his toys out the pram though.    The EU knows now with whom it will be negotiating with for the next 12 months, strengthening Mrs May's hand. The EU furthermore has the added motivation to get their collective skates on. If Mrs May does not plan to lead the tories into the next election, as she currently states, then they will be negotiating with the deranged fringes of one or other party instead on crucial to them trade issues.     I hope this will be enough to avoid an off the cliff Brexit, but the players are getting pretty entrenched. 
  8. GLS - too much to expect

      One either has natural authority or one doesn't    More seriously though, respect goes in both directions and being a little old fashioned about things can sometimes improve the self respect of those one is dealing with, and get you a better outcome. 
  9. Brexit: The fallout

    British holiday makers will be charged 6 (Edited) GBP to visit Europe:   https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6495379/British-holidaymakers-charged-7-visit-EU.html    Cue uproar.    A quick glance at the DE citizenship thread shows the cost to UK nationals to receive a second citizenship (application fees, formal translations of documentations, costs of German language lessons and tests, cost of Einbürgerungstest etc) that perhaps would have not been desired in other circumstances.    Just how out of touch the is the will of the UK people?  
  10. Brexit: The fallout

      A question being posed by the EU as well according to the link from @Anna65 
  11. GLS - too much to expect

    If my parcel had gone awol I would be insisting on "Sie" not "Dich" never mind "dich". 
  12. Brexit: The fallout

      I honestly don't know. I honestly don't know if I am supposed to know. We are very much in the land of establishment* weasel words here.    I suspect that historians will be picking over this exact question for generations** to come.   ---   *establishment in the UK establishment sense **generation in the social science sense
  13. Brexit: The fallout

    @dom   That is a highly disturbing caption. Should I hope that it refers to the denigration / capitulation of the UK in the personification of the prime minister??? Or should I fear that it is another derogatory depiction of a woman trying to do her job.    Not sure I am that excited by either option to be honest. 
  14. Twat of the day

      Thanks.    You know what they say though, keep your friends close and your enemies even closer...    However, many TT contributors consider a link to such a publication to be automatically a personal endorsement, no matter how ludicrous the content. So people might want to tread carefully there if they are worried about their internet reputation. 
  15. Brexit: The fallout

    If any of the sides involved genuinely gave a crap about EU nationals in the UK, UK nationals in the EU or people on either side of the Irish border, then they would have highlighted this issue as being too important to get caught up in the mire of brinkmanship and taken it to one side to be dealt with separately.    This would have ideally taken place before A50 was set in motion (they had all the time in the world to clear this up first) with all parties agreeing that this should be the factor that shapes further negotiations not the factor to be tagged on at the end (or not).    There are no good solutions because no-one was interested in the first place in having one.
