With holidays abroad a tad fraught, in that people aren't keen on flying and that is before a possible second wave, holidays at home are a welcome option.
Try buying a caravan or a motorhome today.....

Same here woody. Illegal immigration and focus on human trafficking prevention seems very low priority with Boris and his ilk.

Plenty of boats bought to make the crossing.

You'd think you could tighten that up...IF ..you wanted to.

I thought Lynn Truss had been consigned to the outer darkness of the lords years ago, all you need to do to be a minister is to be more useless and therefore no danger to Boris, seems to be a constant supply in the Tory party these days.

Aren't Nissan going to leave if there is a no deal (or a even a 'non-frictionless') Brexit?

Possibly, but at least they'll not take multimillions from EU to move their production from Southampton to Turkey like Ford, or Coventry to Slovakia like Peugeot and dump the workforce on the dole in UK

I doubt if Nissan will leave

I'll try and dig out the survey but someone studied the closeness of culture. New Zeland, Canada and Australia (all more racially and culturally diverse than the EU) all scored more highly than most European countries. The US scored highly too.

But the highest scorer (i.e the most similar): France! (Sm135) Time to bring back the Angevin empire.

Liz Truss has 'walked away' from a trade deal with Japan as they won't give us a better deal than the EU on Stilton.

That has to be a non story...the export value is currently nothing almost.
Nice headline news though...

Boris reneging on the legally binding Northern Ireland agreement he personally signed and threatening to take his toys home if the other kids don't bend over backwards to make him look good by mid October. Who's going to bother signing any treaties with the UK in future after this demonstration of reliability?

Just keeping the thread up the pages in preparation for what promises to be an economically and politically "exciting" couple of months at the end of the year.



... IMHO, of course.

You've read the unpublished paper have you?

The WA supposes an agreed FTA agreement being in place at the end of the transition period. As it currently looks likely there will be no agreement the UK needs to be ready (as does the EU). So there are things that need to be in place to cover any gaps between the WA and the lack of FTA. As such the government would be stupid not to prepared for it wouldn't they? Perhaps it'd be better to wait and see what the bill actaully says rather than make assumptions.

So our "oven ready" WA assumed that a FTA could be put in place that most people said at the time was really unlikely to happen? As a result we're going to put in place the building blocks for breaking up the uk.
