I thought everyone reads the inews
But Britain would be able to broker trade agreements with other countries? The current deal on the table would allow Britain to start trade negotiations with other countries after 29 March 2019 but any deals would not be implemented until after the transition period of 21 months.

On the march, a tanned elderly lady with curled blonde hair spoke with the news commentator and said when "she voted to leave, she did not really know what she was voting for and had she known what is has now become, she would have voted to remain", hum mmm interesting insight.

Did the fact that she was elderly, had blonde curly hair and was tanned add any validity or weight to her comment ? I'm glad you found her comment interesting though, although I can't imagine why

Poor Jim, after all this time he still hasn't learned that sarcasm is the lowest form of wit Looking on the positive side, he still has time to improve

Isn't hindsight is a wonderful thing. I can't begin to imagine that anyone could have forseen the total fiasco where politicians continue to behave like spoilt brats - most of them probably are - but it's still no excuse, given the severity of the situation, for their totally irresponsible actions.

Next time I go to vote, it will be for the MRLP. At least I'll know that I will get exactly what I voted for... Screaming Lord Such for PM.

On a Brexit plus... I now know whom not to act as a bartender when ordering a pint. Stroking the pump handle, no matter how hard or how long, won't make the beer flow. Old habits, apparently die hard where some people are concerned.

If I had a said a person, it would have not marked out her importance as an individual. I can't help you with your lack of understanding....Duh

I shouldn't laugh really, but great humour and banter. Have a very pleasant evening

It doesn't necessarily stop me from posting it up, not that I believe everything I read in the news either. Some of the tin pot EU countries would jump at the chance of breaking into the 21 month interval and grabbing the trade off the Brits. If there are restrictions, the British will import via the back door of EU Ireland and leave Calais out of it completely. There is Zeebrugge Port, who else? Thinking hat on

That could have been a preferable option to the ones currently in the lineup. Sadly however, Screaming Lord Such committed suicide in 1999, so it seems we are left with a very uninspiring choice at the next election.

Somebody needs to hunt down David “call me Dave” Cameron, drag him out of his shepherds hut and tell him to sort out the mess he caused.

You do of course, realise that he isn't really dead? He pulled a similar stunt years ago and Jumped out of a black coffin to carry on screaming - where do you think Sid James and Co., got the idea?

Oh! How I wish it were true... that he's just biding his time for a grand re-entrance into politics. Now that really would be


Getting back to reality... Brexit: Hold your nerve, Raab tells 'jittery' Tories

My advice: Don't hold your breath.

I'm amazed how little he's talked about given that he's the parent of all this chaos. There was an article saying as much in the Guardian today:

Phil, I think you will find I understand perfectly. ( from a female perspective of course )

My Edited Version: On the march, a lady spoke with the news commentator and said when "she voted to leave, she did not really know what she was voting for and had she known what is has now become, she would have voted to remain", hum mmm interesting insight.

The fact I omitted to mention she was elderly, tanned and had curly blonde hair has not diminished from the point of the post.

A "person" to you, has no importance as an individual, but an elderly, tanned, curly haired, blonde "person" has importance.

That's not too difficult to understand .... Duh

Rebecca
