  1. Brexit: The fallout

    Just seem the press conferences between Varadkar and Johnson; I certainly get the impression that he is not for turning.   It will be interesting what comes of these "all Island solutions" that have been muted over the last few days; with the chaos in Parliament, is DUP support really that crucial now? If the general mood in Northern Ireland is that an NI-only backstop is an acceptable solution, perhaps that gives a deal that the rebel alliance and Labour brexiteers can just about get over the line without needing the DUP?
  2. Brexit: The fallout

      I think I said something about this many pages ago - basically someone I know in the UK went to one of the hustings, and this suggestion was being muted back then as the solution, so this idea is definitely not new!   Presumably if Johnson does suggest this, he does it knowing full well that Ireland (or indeed any of the other EU countries) could never agree to such - so it would simply be a case of him playing to the gallery, like a less overtly confrontational Trump...
  3. Brexit: The fallout

      There have also been some legal people saying that it can retrospectively happen too (especially with a new Government).
  4. Brexit: The fallout

    So looks like an election is coming... Labour can really appear to be putting country before party if they put getting no deal legislation above getting an election
  5.   This looks like something lifted from a tourism guide, but fair play to you if you wrote that.   Have to be honest, I very much like living in Frankfurt, I don't find it (or the region in general) a dull place at all. I do have enormous difficulty persuading friends to visit here though - maybe it's the idea of visiting me rather than Frankfurt that puts them off 
  6. I usually don't mind going for runs, but I'm in Enkheim/Fechenheim area and not near Nordend!
  7. Brexit: The fallout

      There are some strange ones in there... Sam Allardyce eating a pie... and no idea what Neil Warnock is doing there? Danny Dyer looking at David Cameron, brilliant!  Aaron Banks looks to have a central role in this picture too

      Hey I'm sure there is nothing wrong with Estonian females! 
  9. Brexit: The fallout

      It would be another area where he can claim that the Democrats had acted against him I guess
  10. Brexit: The fallout

      Absolutely right - unfortunately, because Cameron first of all expected to be in coalition with the Lib Dems again if Tusk is to be believed, and then on winning a majority believed that the country would vote to remain, meant that issues which should have been solved before a referendum took place, were never even considered. 
  11. If only this was Frankfurt! Although I've only played computer-based D&D like Neverwinter Nights and Knights of the Old Republic...
  12. Brexit: The fallout

      Oh absolutely.  But Hannan is all too happy to appear on US television spouting conspiracy theories and all sorts of other shite. In some ways, I think he is worse than Farage - everyone knows what Farage is, but Hannan gets wheeled out as some respectable, intelligent, politician from a long established mainstream party, and lends perceived credibility to his viewpoint.
  13. Brexit: The fallout

    Well, if it’s not my old mate Daniel Hannan talking shite...
  14. Brexit: The fallout

      They are probably quite anonymous so it doesn't really matter :P
  15. Brexit: The fallout

      That really would be something... Johnson wins a general election and then reverts to the original idea of a customs border down the Irish sea, and sells it as an improved Withdrawal Agreement.   Would that be the first step towards Northern Ireland leaving the UK?
