  2. Brexit: The fallout

    Ford to shut Bridgend Engine plant with loss of all 1700 jobs plus probably 3 times that in indirect jobs.   Usual "Brexit wasn't responsible" corporate message so as not to offend those who voted for this.   Bridgend voted 54% for Brexit. One reaps what one sows. Fell sorry for the 46% who weren't complete idiots of course.   UK car manufacturing is being wiped out. There will be nothing left of it soon and then even if Brexit is stopped it will be too late.

    They should have just all joined the Lib Dems.
  5. Claiming Eigendbedarf on my apartment.

    The Berliner Landgericht judgement was overturned on appeal to the BGH, which said old age cannot be a general reason for refusing to accommodate "Eigenbedarf". The Landgericht must decide again in this particular case.

    Interesting article.    More in-depth analysis here:
  7. Neighbour boundary issues

    Your neighbour has absolutely no right to place his garden shed so it overhangs your property. Just tell him to move it. I would go ballistic if my neighbour took such a liberty. Even for a permanent structure this would not be allowed except for "energetische Sanierungen" where external insulation is added, much less for a garden shed that can be moved.   Your neighbour is also responsible for ensuring runoff does not escape his property, even if there is a natural gradient.
  8. Brexit: The fallout

    Rory Stewart on C4 News just now said he would create a citizens' assembly as was used in Ireland to solve the abortion dilemma. He's the only candidate so far to rule out no deal.
  9. Brexit: The fallout

    Who could possibly really want the job as opposed to the perks of the job? I'm sure most of these rats are more interested in the fat pension afterwards.
  10. Brexit: The fallout

    This is not even necessarily true. Irish citizens, for example, cannot vote in any elections from outside the state (with limited exceptions for diplomats etc.). I suspect other EU countries also have this (admittedly silly) rule.
  11. Brexit: The fallout

    Outrageous stuff. I'd be pretty enraged if I was in their shoes.   Edit: Sorry, Le Cheese beat me too this one.
  12. Brexit: The fallout

    Absolutely surreal piece of video as 2 Brexiteers argue about who the most Brexity is:    
  13. Brexit: The fallout

    Brexit Party funding really does stink along with anything else Farage has ever touched.
  14. Brexit: The fallout

    Hmmm maybe. Just seemed very contrived, almost like they steered into the guy. Maybe he did decide on the spur of the moment to do it though. It just didn't look like someone who was trying to get into a position of throwing something at Farage.   I'm torn on the merits of such actions. On the one hand it makes him a milkshake martyr and on the other making him look pathetic may be the best tactic. Imagine if Hitler had been milk-shaked a few more times on his rise to power.    
  15. Brexit: The fallout

    I'd say the Farage thing today was staged.
