Re: Bog roll watch

Disappearing from the bloody shelves again, along with pasta and flour. Tesco and Morrisons with restrictions on some items. How dumb are people to not plan ahead? There have been shortages anyway over the summer. Tinned sweetcorn was like gold dust at my local suppermarket. People are dumb because...

Re: OFFICIAL Brexit Thread

Declaring we would have had control had we continued to allow the EU to keep sovereignty is more so. But it's not.

Only it's not about independence if we give away sovereignty on such as GPS. You could fairly say it was about the pretence of independence, just not actual independence. We've never had 'sovereignty' over GPS. It's an american system owned and maintained by the yanks. We wouldn't have 'sovereignty...
