1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Unfortunately there are another 25 pages missing from May's deal in Bojo's version. They are the regulatory alignment pages on employment law, consumer and environmental protections.

    What is left is Canada minus minus which is barely better than no deal (apart from giving us another couple of years of normality during transition).

    The UK won't get the same deal as Canada because we are too close not to be able to undermine the integrity of the single market with potentially lower standards in food safety, environmental standards and workers' rights.

    Brexiteer economic thinking, for whatever reason, completely ignores the proximity argument regarding trade between nations despite the fact that it is backed up by data of trade flows between countries close to each other and those further away.

    Rightly so, the EU won't allow us to undercut them as we are on their doorstep.

    This leads me to an obvious question:

    If the point of lowering standards is to give you a competitive advantage but that advantage is more than offset by tariffs, what is the point?

    Is it purely out of gratuitous spite on the part of the Ultra Elites towards ordinary folk?

    Do they really hate us that much?

    The above is completely contrary to evidence.

    If incest is a game that all the family can join in, then Brexit is an ideology that unites the hard right of the Conservative party with the extreme left of the Labour party.

    J C Bamford will be making a killing as well. Boris literally owes them.

    Classic kip sheet response. Surely you can think for yourself? His question was really straightforward. Are you not intellectually up to it?

    An ad at the top of the page for Chasing Rainbows: The Road To Oz. A perfect metaphor for Brexit, chasing an impossible dream to reach a mythical land...

    No point our self nominated negotiators Bercow and Swinston will be presenting the appeasment conditions to parliament on the 14th.

    See, you just did it again. You could manage down Wetherspoons and the bowling club, but you can’t manage here. Why is that?

    Have these people (they like using that term) forgotten about Quisling? It would fit their rhetoric perfectly.
    Maybe it's being held back for the final Brexit push or...perhaps highlighting collaboration with fascists is a bit...err...contradictory?

    More than a whiff, if even half of it is true. The poster claims 90% of what's in that thread is publicly verifiable. This has to come out, and soon.

    The joke is on us unfortunately... What the heck's a "general principle"?

    There is a general principle that, subject to certain spending limits, funding from abroad is not allowed in UK elections. However, as the Electoral Commission has made clear, the current rules do not explicitly ban overseas spending. We recommend that, at the earliest opportunity, the Government reviews the current rules on overseas involvement in our UK elections to ensure that foreign interference in UK elections, in the form of donations, cannot happen. We also need to be clear that Facebook, and all platforms, have a responsibility to comply with the law and not to facilitate illegal activity.
