If so, its orbit is probably cited in a Protected Designation of Origin. It would need a name."Lunacy" has a ring about it.

So are you're saying that you wouldn't be surprised if it did bypass local politicians?

Sorry to disapoint you, but I have it on good authority from two individuals who have been there... it isn't?

If Wallace and Gromit say it isn't cheese, then it must be true... dog's don't tell fibs

My dog Charlie used to tell me he was hungry all the time, so perhaps they do fib a bit

Chris Grayling wants voters to get cash bonus for Brexit

"Every adult should be given a cash handout to mark Britain’s exit from the EU, Chris Grayling suggested at a special cabinet meeting.
The transport secretary’s proposal for a “Brexit bonus” came as ministers discussed this week how to respond to the possible economic shock of crashing out of the EU without an agreement. The suggestion was met with astonishment by some colleagues, according to a witness. “Liz Truss’s face was a picture,” they said of the Treasury chief secretary."

It's lucky that he is "only" in charge of Transport .....

Liz Truss would probably like to mark the occasion by giving us all a bit of plastic-wrapped Cheddar.

I see that the Director of the IMF, Christine Lagarde agrees with the Director of the Bank of England, Mark Carney - that the UK will take a financial hit even if there is some sort of deal over Brexit.

Still, what do they know about economics!

The Brexiteers fallback position is 'Project la,la,la - I can't hear you!'.

I think there are going to be a lot of very angry people next year as people that voted for Brexit lose their jobs and the value of any money they've saved. Even the most optimistic Brexiteers now seem to accept that there will be at least short term hardship.

Imagine how furious you'd be if you voted leave, and lost your job and home because you were duped by liars!

Not as furious as those who voted remain would be in similar circumstances!
