French junk food like Quick is awful - just no need to when the plat de jour in some little bistro is invariably fantastic

The French have taken western fast food and moulded it to their own culture. The only place where a Maccy D will take 1/2 hour to cook and still turn up without frites.

Mick, does trade deficit work for you as an indicator of people's disappointment with their government, or may be of the state of ruin of a country ?

Decades on, Anglos like MM and DAC, still pinning their hypersensitive national identity on a Le Pen win and the demise of the Euro. :yawn:

If only they knew how comparatively little the average Frenchman or continental European felt the need to compare themselves with Little Brittin.

You are a liar, little man.

I do not have any great wish for a Le Pen win. That is entirely the business of the French people.

As for the Euro, it does not matter what I want. Whatever happens will happen.

It would be a pleasant change if you ceased expressing your inadequacies by lying.

Another terrific cock up from team Brexit, or HMG if you prefer

Yep, absolutely nothing to do with the 400 billion spending on the pandemic. :thumbup:



(Also probably made up).

That's a point, but seeing as they've spaffed some decent chunks of that money up the wall on the businesses of their friend and families it's still a bad point.

When they said they'd protect the Horizon budget I don't think we envisaged them making payment for it from the science budget, not unless the science budget was backfilled with the money that used to go into the EU budgetary contributions, which they haven't done. Okay they said they were going to spend the £350 million a week on the NHS instead, but they can't even claim to have done that. Well they can claim, but it would be somewhat deceitful or if being nice show they don't understand accounting on a basic level.

Also this is going to lose us more in investments into the UK than it costs us to bloody well do in the first place, and we then miss out on some of the industrial potential of the outcomes of said research. It's barking mad, and it runs contrary to the rhetoric around global Britain. And it means some researchers who've just spent the last year working 16 hour days doing research into Covid will now as a thanks be fired, so let's hope we don't need them again.

Having criticised HMG for failing to fund science spending in saying they'd meet the Horizon spend out of the science budget and not general spend they have now found the cash, or at least they've found the case for one year. And that's good, it's not what it should be, but it's better than what they were saying until now.

It's a daft way to go about allowing people to plan, we've already missed out on some projects because we unable to commit, and in only extending funding for one year that will not allow for commitments down the line. Much better if HMG had a coherent strategy rather than continuing to try and get away with a whack-a-mole approach and even then doing the least they consider they can get away with issue by issue.

There is even with the backfill for one year's Horizon spend still a big shortage coming in the science spend, but much of that is down to the pandemic, to a reduction in charitable donations, to some of donations still in place going to say the NHS rather than medical charities. There's a question here how much HMG should be stepping up to cover this, but that is a very different problem to them not properly funding the Horizon spend. And there's a question about the % spend on research, even if we got to pre-pandemic levels that's still rather shit compared to leading nations.

Still, overall the position today is better than it was last week.

Why did you write this in response to a message mentioning France record trade balance deficit then?

What was the relevance of your message to the discussion and what was your reasoning?

You quoted a post on the French trade deficit and commented by mentioning Le Pen could win this time and France leave the Euro.

Usually, when posts are being quoted, it is because we want to respond to them, or link our own message to that quoted message.

As simple as that. You can write what you want and I object to nothing (and anyway, you wouldn't care if I did and that would be fair enough).

I am just curious to understand why you made this link.

But if you tell me you had no intention of linking your statement on Le Pen and the Euro to DAC'S post on the French trade deficit, and that you are just randomly quoting messages when you type, fair enough. I'll be aware and won't try to interpret your post in the light of the post you referred to.

They don't even have the power to harmonise it across the states do they? But they want the world to help them out. Sure Chyna will be desperate to help.

Guess we are just lucky that Intel agreed the next €4 billion (out of 15 billion) investment in Ireland with the 6,000 construction jobs and the 1500 permanent jobs, before you tipped them off.
Bad timing.

French probably pissed off because of that English bloke just puked on him, completely pissed while it is not even 19h and having spilled the bottles of wine on the floor when collapsing.
Or offended that no one wanted to order in raclette.
You fuckers :x :x
At least France hates the Uk but has decent food you can order in.
Don't be fooled by the French, they really love their junk food, they would just rather pretend that the whole world don't know this.
Don't they just. Their supermarkets are full of just as much junk as anywhere.

Looking real.
They don't even have the power to harmonise it across the states do they? But they want the world to help them out. Sure Chyna will be desperate to help.
They’ll have eu support. It’s a popular policy.
Yep. Think there is a general discontent with neo liberalism. Does anyone really look at the likes of facebook, twitter, amazon, google etc and not think they are a bunch of arseholes with too much power?

The brexit voters (from the midlands) I know were a lot nearer Corbyn economically than rees-mogg though they would never vote for Corbyn.

Agree economically but Corbyn is so far removed from them on social/cultural issues (immigration, patriotism, IRA, etc) that they will never ever vote for him.

The electoral sweet spot is to be left wing on economic issues and right wing on cultural/social issues
