I suppose their stuff will be frozen because of shipping times, unless it gets flown in in which case it won't be cheap.

All it needs is a campaign by the Daily Mail about chlorinated chicken and how it causes cancer (allegedly) and it'll never sell. Easy.

Jean Claude was not as confident in the EU Parliament tonight as he'd like to think he made out. And for heaven's sake, would someone trip Farage up so he breaks his jaw and can't talk until the next we leave the EU? I never want to hear that idiot speak.

Nice to see the Tories might have almost finalised Brexit negotiations ... with themselves.
What a fucking joke.

It's not just that they're making a total cunt of the Brexit negotiations.
These are the same people who will be expected to set up new trade deals with the rest of the world in the aftermath ... no doubt to the same 'high' standards.


... we'll probably corner the global 'pig in a poke' market.

The thing is, it's not the politicians that do the real negotiating, it's the civil servants, infinitely brighter than the MPs, in manifold meetings with their counterparts that will get the job done. What the civil servants need is a sense of what we actually want from the talks. It's then up to them to get it. So far, that's been the stumbling block.

They've started dubbing the Captain Birdseye adverts already.
I can't lip read but it looks like German. ;)

The hinted at new plan seems... sensible.

(If it survives)

So much for Strong and Stable Government, these cunts can't even form a stable Party.

During the most important negotiations we've undertaken in 40 years (a situation that they themselves contrived), they can barely go a week without collapsing into internecine bickering and back stabbing.

....it's this country they're stabbing in the fucking back.

Meh, I was just hoping that the talks would fail, so they could cancel Brexit. They have reached some sort of agreement a few days ago

David Davis brazenly stated that the government haven't bothered to carry out any impact assessments because you don't have to make any to know that leaving Europe will have an impact.

Let's hope he has the same laissez faire attitude when it comes to cooking his Christmas turkey, since he doesn't need to know how long to cook it for in order to know that putting it in a hot oven will warm it up.

I try and avoid all of this guff. There's nothing I can do in any way so I try not to depress myself.

I see the FT have conducted an analysis that shows we'll lose as much money by leaving Europe as it costs us to stay in it.
Exactly the same amount of money that Brexiteers claimed we would save.

So that's that idea fucked then. :/

btw, that's them extrapolating from existing data that shows a 0.9% drop in GDP.
Post Brexit, it is estimated that GDP could reduce by 1.7%, nearly doubling the weekly loss.

An UN ambassador is quoted in saying that the EU won't necessarily support the UK's claim of the Falklands. Brexiters have really fucked this one up
