    I see, you support the Trump plan to thin out the herd by allowing states to make the rules up locally and support federal thinning of the herd, when those rules are ignored?
    If only the CS were still running the UK eh.
    Time for you to STFU too pikey.

    There's no spite there, pity possibly, but no spite. It is just matter of fact. Many EU countries haven't bothered to issue the new rules to UK citizens resident in the EU. They wasted enough money doing that the first time. Now it will be 3-6 months grace to do the paperwork or bye-bye. Not so easy for those that travel and work away on site.

    You arrive at your silly conclusions numpty, and then make the ‘information’ fit.

    One minute you’re asking why I care, the next telling me I don’t.

    Doubtless you’ll be rattling around a while longer on this track as you tell us all yet again of the ‘better things’ you have to spend your time on.

    Chastity, what’s left of your brain appears to be pickled beyond repair, and your inability to see what a niggly old trout you’ve become is quite saddening.

    The pair of you are just redundant old maids, lacking purpose and slowly shrinking into your graves.

    ^ I am heartened you care Syb but really you should focus more on yourself - you and a group of Victor Meldrews on here never seem happier than complaining about the world changing or in the case of BLM not changing enough. Speaking of pickling hows the holiday going, lets go to the desert and see some sand....again

    Boris Johnson will shy away from no-deal Brexit, predicts Peter Mandelson


    The Labour peer, who has been approached about being Britain’s candidate to be the next World Trade Organisation (WTO) director general, said the government would realise that it cannot inflict a 'second whammy' on UK business in the wake of the Covid crisis

    The UK government will ultimately back away from a no-deal Brexit because trading on World Trade Organisation rules with Europe would be simply too damaging for UK business after the Covid crisis, Peter Mandelson has predicted.

    The Labour peer was one of the leading figures of the Remain campaign in 2016 yet he says he has been informally approached by the government about whether he might be interested in being Britain’s candidate to be the next World Trade Organisation (WTO) director general when the post becomes vacant in August.

    What are World Trade Organisation terms and what exactly do they mean?

    The government has rejected the option of extending the post-Brexit transition period which ends in December and government sources have apparently briefed that the costs of a no deal Brexit in January are lower than they have ever been.

    But Lord Mandelson said ministers would be unlikely to allow talks on an EU trade agreement to break down.

    “If we left the European Union at the end of this year on WTO terms, we would pay both a short-term and a long-term price in doing that,” he told the Econ Films CoronaNomics show.

    He said that the high EU tariffs that would instantly hit car manufacturing and chemicals exports would “wipe out” many UK businesses.

    “It would be very serious for us. And coming on top of the whacking businesses and jobs have had from Covid. I mean, it doesn’t bear thinking about. Which is why I believe this government, which has not lost all sense of perspective, I think would realise that it does need a deal. It can’t deliver a second whammy of that kind to the UK economy.”

    Many have been doubtful of the likelihood a Downing Street run by veterans of the Vote Leave campaign proposing an outspoken remain supporter like Lord Mandelson as the UK’s WTO candidate for director-general.

    As expected, no rebuttal of my assertion that you have no dog in this fight. You insist on spouting your insane political beliefs from a safe distance. You are really a smug bore with no redeeming features, yet you still expect people to take you seriously.
    I realise that you think you are clever by withholding information about your background, but living by your Guardian quotes alone, means that you lack any credibility at all.
    Sucking on Martina Hyde’s goes simply makes you a socialist sheep.
    Cretinous beliefs backed up by nothing.
    Your lifestyle must be a real joke if you see fit to deny any of it, then regale everyone with comments about the stupidity of others.
    The bottom line is, you are a broken hypocrite, with no backbone. Denial is the posture that makes you and your comments irrelevant.
    Cue more ad hom slating of your detractors, because your denial shames you. Don’t presume to tell anyone about UK politics, or the worth of Brexit voters, when your connection to such matters is tenuous at best.

    I don't think I have observed a better case of projection.

    Classic.

    Poor Chas, he must be in a right two-and-eight.

    I've heard rumours that the UK is hoping to strengthen ties with Turkey following Brexit. Another one of those Brexit lies turning against expectations, rather like the battle bus.

    Will Boris buckle under pressure? He'll mumble bumble his way through, stepping on the odd mine as he goes..

    Why is Chas paying UK tax when living in Bali? Surely your military pension is tax free Chas?

    It really is utterly laughable that someone would put that forward as an argument that their opinion is more valid than another's.

    I look forward to these two clowns Numpty and Dimmer Switch restricting their comments to the UK in the future.

    No input whatsoever possible about goings on in the EU, for starters.

    As an outsider (to the human face) your contribution is, once again, worthless.

    That isn't going to go down too well with the Farage believers.

    The new reality.


    Health Secretary Matt Hancock has spoken about the UK's decision to opt out of the EU Covid-19 vaccine scheme.


    He told Times Radio that signing up to the EU programme would have meant abandoning Britain's own procurement schemes, which were more developed.


    He said Britain would not have been allowed to "have a say" in "the vaccines that were procured, the price, [or] the quantity of the delivery schedule".


    He added that one of the "conditions" of the EU's scheme was that Britain would have had to stop its "own negotiations and only do them through the European Commission, and we weren't prepared to do that".


    He insisted: "We think we will go faster this way."

    ^ The UK citizens are certainly "going" faster than any other country in the EU.

    Not really the best time to go it alone.

    Troy, the numbers are irrelevant i thought you'd know that by now. The COVID stats are bollix, its down to honesty and testing and if you think the EU is above lying about facts to suit themselves them you are more deluded than i gave you credit for ...Italy and Spain ... give me a break.

    Really, you think the numbers are accurate as declared by two of the most corrupt countries in the EU. EU countries have a history of lying about a whole raft of stats they are mandated to provide the mother ship to live within policy boundaries and you think these two stalwarts of lying are going to change their spot over a little affair like COVID - Dorothy you've been out of Kansas too long ya loon
