Re: EU in or out? Brexit: The Movie

I think the thought that all the ills of the United Kingdom lay at the feet of the EU to be naive in the extreme. I have heard not 1 thought from any believer of what is to follow Brexit..Simply because they don't know.. It is all a wish & a prayer - for that economic growth (& there is little impro...

Re: 2017 Ashes Tour

Close - England lead Cricket Australia XI by 87 runs with 7 wickets remaining
The hosts out for 250.
Good opening stand between Cook & Stoneman of 172, but I don't think the pitch offered a great deal to the fielding side..
Root, not out 62 & Malan, not out 57 will continue in the morning...

Re: EU in or out? Brexit: The Movie

Oh dear what an angry man... :D The 1 flaw in his argument however is his belief that a Westminster Government will in any way be better for the UK as a whole than a European one has been.. History indicates that is huge wishful thinking...When was the last time that a Westminster Government did any...

Re: EU in or out? Brexit: The Movie

Surely you can't be talking about the same Michael Bloomberg who's just opened a new European HQ costing £1bn in the city of London :-" That's him, the man who yesterday said.. What will happen with Brexit is that some jobs will move – although they may have very well be replaced here – but the gro...

Re: EU in or out? Brexit: The Movie

No deal is far from the best option...It will place a huge burden of extra paperwork on any business that does business outside the UK. I have named 2 - A decrease in the value of the pound & the difficulties in negotiating exit terms. Both things that the Brexiters said were scaremongering by Remai...

Re: 2017 Ashes Tour

Sadly the rest of the bowling & fielding side rather made a hash of it, with dropped catches & inconsistent length.
Mind you those cheating Australian ***** have deliberately prepared pitches for the warm up games that will bear no semblance to what will be prepared for the Tests.. :D

Re: EU in or out? Brexit: The Movie

Every single thing that project fear told us would happen, and are still telling us, has proven to be false. We have nothing to fear. Given that Brexit has not yet happened I wonder exactly which Remainer claims you feel have failed to materialise Adhoc? 1. The pound remains at 80% of its' value be...

Re: ''Welcome to The Old Inn Industrial Loft Hotel"

Ah, the newly built place next to the Sports Bar.
They are certainly building new rooms for rent in the centre of town at the moment.
I am surprised that the market/outlook is so buoyant for visitors to Udon

Most of the play offs were won after the first leg, this one was decisively won by the away side in the second leg.
The Irish were lightweight in attack - due to lack of options - & so suffered when they felt that they had to try & win the game!!

Re: EU in or out? Brexit: The Movie

UK plc will thrive without the red tape. You do realise that the Great Repeal Bill only replaces the European Communities Act. Every law that has been introduced via the EU over the last 40 years is just transposed into UK law. There is absolutely no replacement of any 'red tape' . Indeed unless so...

Re: UK 1 Pound Coin

No Timmy, not until about August. I went last July & returned with £60 of the old tenners. :( I am off to Vietnam later this week so I will try & change the old tenners for Vietnamese Dong in the airport. Problem could be that they are not exactly in pristine condition & while they would be accepted...
