EU officials also described a lunch in Luxembourg on Monday between Mr Johnson, Michel Barnier, and Mr Juncker as the moment the “penny dropped” for the prime minister on the complexities involved in replacing the Irish backstop. Mr Johnson was told by his counterparts that the UK’s proposals on allowing Northern Ireland to stick to common EU rules on food and livestock was not a sufficient replacement for the Irish backstop as it would still require customs checks on other types of goods. “It was clear that Boris was on a learning curve,” said an EU official. Another described Mr Johnson as “slumping” into his seat over the course of lunch as the reality of the tight negotiating schedule dawned. A Number 10 official last night rejected the description of the lunch as “nonsense”.

Do you really think this is what happened at that meeting? :lol:

The idea of Boris turning to Frost and going "what, so it doesn't work?" :lol:

Headline news today was that Boris was confronted by a heckler at a hospital visit today.


Here’s the member of the public.

His child is a patient.
Whether he's left, right or centre, he's not wrong about the NHS



You’re right the NHS can be shite, but money isn’t the problem.

And now you're an expert in healthcare funding, hospital logistics etc...

:thumbup:



I’ve claimed no expertise, I’ve given an opinion, same as the leftie activist berating Boris , his opinions made headline news.

Mainly because of the instantaneous, insanely obvious and whopping lie, that just automatically rolled off his tongue.

No, the activist had opinion on Doctor and Nurse numbers nothing to do with the media.

The Singapore option: Ultra low business tax. Which means a revenue deficit from the current revenue level, So where is this made up from? Will the rich accept higher rates on income tax to compensate?

No, I thought not.

Will the poor accept lower services? Yep, you're damn right they will!


Well no, it doesn't.

The UK will have far more options to mitigate losses because we will no longer be subject to EU restrictions and will able to act as a fully independent nation state.


Which EU restrictions specifically bother you, can you name three?

They're justifiable when seeking to ensure a level playing field across member states but once free of such obligations the UK Government will be able to put resources where they're most needed without for example falling foul of State-Aid rules. We will shape our regulatory and trade policy to promote areas of special UK interest.


I asked you which specific restrictions bother you, please name three


bendy bananas ....only 2 to go....

O’Neill says there was a “cunning” change in what the government decided to do.

Instead of proroguing parliament over 31 October, instead it decided to prorogue parliament first.

He says the decision to prorogue parliament between 9 September and 14 October fits with the government seeking the longest possible prorogation consistent with the Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Act, which included requirements for the government to report to parliament on developments in Northern Ireland.

Well no, it doesn't.

The Laffer curve, beloved of simpleton's everywhere. Discredited so many times and even Laffer himself admitted it doesn't work at the extremes, i.e. ultra low as above . So in short you don't know what you are talking about

As there's absolutely no evidence the country wants either hard Brexit or Corbyn's socialism, it's daft that this is our assumed choice.

Hopefully that changes with a good election campaign and the vision being laid out. Radical change is needed and Corbyn's the closest the UK's got to being able to deliver it.


Agreed, the things Labour stand for like getting rid of zero hours contracts should appeal to people, well those who aren't Tory scum anyway

All zero hour contracts? Or just the 28% which do not suit the employees?

It's 28% who find zero hour contract suit them, i.e. 72% which do not suit the employees.

Quote:
It also found that as few as 28% of people on zero-hours contracts worked on that basis to take advantage of the flexibility offered, effectively undermining one of the key arguments against banning the contracts.
