  1. Brexit: The fallout

      But if this happened, wouldn't Labour then lose seats in Wales and the Northern mining towns? There seem to be rabid hard as possible Brexit fanatics en masse in these places - I guess it's the "we are f**ked so everyone else should be too" mentality.   As a lot of remain-centric places are already Labour strongholds, won't such a thing help ensure a Tory majority?
  2.   He's also the worst kind of tory!
  3.   According to Daniel Hannan in his Oxford Uni address, the financial crisis was caused by too much supervision and regulation which stopped banks from quickly responding and so stopped them from mitigating the crisis 
  4. Thanks @bramble   It's a lot more than 44 trees felled!
  5. Brexit: The fallout

    @Janx Spirit is that from todays March?
  6. I haven't been able to find out why, so am opening this up in case anyone knows what is going on.    I live by Fechenheimer Wald and over the past few weeks there has been a huge tree cutting operation where lots of healthy and established trees have been cut down, with plenty more marked to come down.   The Wald was really dense, but now it's looking more and more thinned out, and it looks quite desolate with the tree stumps, wreckage of downed trees, and vehicle tracks.   Does anyone know why there is this mass tree cull taking place there?
  7.   So is there a veiled implication here that the issuing criteria for these residency titles isn't going to be solely down to strict interpretation of third country rules? Because when I spoke to the Betriebsrat of my employer, I was told that residency permits which include the right to work, have requirements linked to recognised qualifications, and that if my company wanted to hire me as a new starter from a non-EU country they believe my lack of degree would mean no permit.   The response they had from the ABH was a vague "Third country national rules apply if there is a no deal Brexit". The response I had from the ABH when I submitted my residency title form was "We are awaiting additional guidance on how we asess people already employed here" which suggests that the uniqueness of the loss of EU rights situation may be taken in to account.

      I hope it's better than when he was circling Wembley in an airship chanting "England win!"
  9. Brexit: The fallout

    What the hell was last night about? A message of "I am the peoples Prime Minister, and Parliament is against the people"?    First Civil Servants, then MPs; it's almost like she wants civil unrest?

    Apparently the next meaningful vote could be on March 28th...
  11. Ah but Mike, what about EMF?

    Does your wife also have a "Bollocks to Brexit" sticker on her car?
