In World War II the average IQ of the combat soldier was 100. In Parliament Square it was nineteen. N-n-n-n-nineteen.    

I remember a few people saying, some years ago when this was all kicking off, that maybe Brexit is what this country needs to finally move on from the Imperial past and embrace a global future. The fa

I had a very tedious summer job putting those on (after testing the beer glasses) about 30 years ago. It was at the metrology lab on Saltmeadows Road in Gateshead.

That last smaller line, though. :lol:

They've got to be trolling and must truly hold their readers in contempt. It's like a 1920s advert.

So much for the Tories being the party of business. It's hard to grow the economy when you've shut off one of your main supplies of labour.

 

If you look at the economic models for the FTA style Brexit we have undergone there were two issues which were forecast to hold back our economy by 5% GDP. First was non-tariff barriers to trade. Second was labour shortage. The predictions look spot on so far.

bloody immigrants, coming over here, taking all the jobs that british people don't want to do 

That’s unfair. It’s also the jobs they’re unable to do

So..... We're pushing back import checks yet again, this time until January next year or July next year (but no doubt will be extended past this date). Frost says it is to give businesses more time to prepare. Which businesses, EU exporters? That's the only group this will help. So once again we prolong the asymmetrical position where UK businesses have to endure a raft of non-tariff barriers, rigorously enforced by the EU, whilst EU companies can export what they like with minimal paper work, completely unchecked? The only reason for this I can make out is that we simply don't have the capacity to enforce the terms of the TCA we negotiated. Why the fuck is this not being adequately reported @Dr Gloom?

 

This is a nation slowly committing suicide, it really is.

Your FT link was actually about the UK unilaterally extending the grace period of the NI protocol. The FT is a pay walled paper read by few people. The fact that we have decided not to control our borders with the EU, to the great detriment of UK businesses who want a level playing field, should be major news. I bet it won't get on the BBC news at 10 tonight, or if it does the implications won't be explained.  (I notice Gove's disgusting racist remarks didn't get aired either btw).

Yes, it will be on twitter and some newspaper sites - I read it on the Guardian live feed. Let's see if the BBC bother to report it on their televised news though. They seem to have given up on anything negative to do with Brexit or historical recording of racism from tory cabinet ministers.
