  1. Brexit: The fallout

    I think you're right, @murphaph. Johnson has successfully managed to adopt the Berlusconi / Trump playbook: if you're going to be shameless, you might as well go the whole hog.   Briefly back to Hartlepool, as this is the Brexit thread: apparently many were unhappy that the Labour candidate was pro-Remain. So that is still very much a factor. The Tory vote benefitted from a significant return of former UKIP supporters.
  2. Brexit: The fallout

      Watching the election coverage on the BBC as the overall results come in, it sounds like the vaccination programme was a key factor across the whole country

      How right you were, @Keleth. May they reap the benefits.
  4. Brexit: The fallout

    Meanwhile, as the UK election results trickle in, the by-election in Hartlepool has just been announced: first Tory MP since 60 years... Johnson's Jersey gunboats to fire a salvo...   https://twitter.com/BritainElects/status/1390548721243459584?s=20

    One small silver lining - where does this situation put Marine Le Pen, admirer of all things Brexit? 🇫🇷🤡🇬🇧
  10. Brexit: The fallout

    It's highly likely that, however absurd these theatrics might appear, Johnson senses his "Falklands moment" and is hoping for a fillip in today's elections across the UK.

  12.   That must be from several years ago, the whole area is now more or less completely built up, with no gaps.   Typically Google Street View in Germany is very often years out of date, primarily because of objections on the basis of privacy concerns.   Edit: @Brockman acknowledged that is is now amongst new buildings...
  13. "Really good" Indian restaurants in Berlin

      I've yet to try it myself. English-language article from the Berliner Zeitung   https://www.berliner-zeitung.de/en/tiffin-pushing-the-envelope-of-indian-cuisine-in-berlin-li.155776.amp  
  14. Berlin Corona Vaccinations

    Latest updates on vaccinations in Berlin. Priority now is Group 3, teachers etc.    Concerning the second jab, over 60's who have already had AZ for their first will receive BionTech for the second at the former Tegel Airport Impfzentrum; under 60's will receive Moderna at Erika-Hess-Eisstadion in Wedding.   http://service.berlin.de/dienstleistung/330073/   https://www.gesetze-im-internet.de/coronaimpfv_2021-04/__4.html
