    There’s the Daily Express threatening the EU with the UK committing economic suicide if the EU doesn’t give them a better deal. Let’s see if that works.

    1. realPolithicks

      Its such a classic example of how the brexiteers think, we’ll just tell the EU what we want and they’ll jump for us. They’re just a bunch of lunatics who are hell bent on committing political and economic suicide and taking the rest of the country with them. What I’d love to know is what they expect to get from this, they must feel that they themselves will personally benefit from the chaos, nothing else makes any sense.

    When I first traveled in Italy I had thought the renaissance painters had conjured magical landscapes.. till I realised that’s what Italy looked like. And when I saw Monty Python I thought how unbelievably original. Now I realise they were just being descriptive. Pity the country that needs hero’s.

      I thought the act was as symbolic as the mace is – the House is clearly not progressing with its objective, nor does it have the people of Britain as their best interest, therefore take the mace out until these basic principles are restored.Seemed reasonable.

  3. SOQ

    About the Northern Irish May said: “They do not want a return to a hard Border. And if this House cares about preserving our union, it must listen to those people because our union will only endure with their consent.”

    A truly remarkable statement for May to make. The choice is clear. Remain in EU or break up the UK. Sticking it to the Brixiteers like never before but most of them will still pick option two. If they get their way, they have achieved something thirty years of troubles could not.

    Quite extraordinary.

      One minute the DUP are ranting and raving at the British Taoiseach for having broken promises to them and the next, without a hint of irony, they are calling on the EU to remove the Backstop and take the UK’s word on there being no hard border.

      1. milk teeth

        They are manic though – they don’t want anything other than some unrealistic frictionless invisible border that seems like it came out of some fever dream.

    Words have stopped having meaning in Britain.

    Theresa May says she’s now seeking “reassurances” whereas everyone believes she means she’s seeking a “renegotiation” of the 600-page Brexit withdrawal agreement. This is the Good Friday Agreement all over again when the DUP tried to undo the deal with their seeking “clarifications”.

    We (the EU 27) don’t have a credible negotiation partner any more, no matter how resilient she is. A no deal disaster is beckoning in 108 days. That rainy day fund we intended setting up next year, we need to put that into a no-deal scenario, €200m will get us 2,000 extra Gardai to deploy at the border, the recruitment needs to start NOW. And if there is a deal or the UK cancels Brexit, then the 2,000 won’t be wasted, they can be redeployed across the country,

    The Clintons were available for 50 bucks in LA on Saturday nite,which does not get you a decent brunch.Among one the many reasons is this simply fantastic piece of investigative journalism(Pulitzer) by The Miami Hearld.For anyone interested in what great journalism is or needs a break from the Brits self-immolation,highly recommend.

    It’s available without paywall here,hopefully there,it’s got…..

    ‘..but one of Epstein’s victims, Virginia Roberts, told The Herald that Epstein didn’t just abuse her himself, he also “lent” her out to “politicians and academics and royalty.” She claimed in a 2015 affidavit that she’d had sex with both Prince Andrew of Britain — she included a photograph of them together — and with one of Epstein’s attorneys, Alan Dershowitz, now best known for his public defenses of Trump.’ NYT

    The LA crowd has had enough of predatory Bill and his unsavory paedophile pals,has that schmuck Dennis O’Brien ?

    Part 1 of a series-Jim Acosta is currently Labor Sec. but not for much longer,house hearings expected in Janusry.

      It’s wild how some republicans pushed that pizzagate thing but it’s actualy Republicans running the abuse rings.

      1. Johnny

        -people here are so inured to Clinton scandals that it’s Acosta career imploding,the story has been picked up by NYT/WaPo with Trump also a frequent guest.His slut shaming enabler was in Ireland twice recently to pick up degrees from Trinity and Queens,they both remain ‘devoted’ to Ireland!-

        -LA based Colony Capital founder Tom Barrack is close friends with Epstein,Dublin property players Paddy Mckillen who has significant holdings in LA is backed by Barrack as is Johnny Ronan.

      “The LA crowd has had enough of predatory Bill and his unsavory paedophile pals,”

      The article you linked has exactly zero to do with Bill Clinton and doesn’t even come close to implying he was involved in paeodohilia.

      1. Brother Barnabas

        Johnny has what we’re politely categorising as ‘comprehension issues’

        just as you’d allow a toddler with suspected ADHD to scribble to his heart’s content on a big notepad just so long as he doesn’t do it on the walls, johnny’s allowed post random weblinks and cut and paste excerpts that he doesn’t understand

        please play along, rotide

        1. Johnny

          The Bro and Ro show~no problem showing you the Clinton angle,answer my question then.
          What was the ‘tax’ FF/FG’s fav drug dealer Reynolds charged his dealers,did he owe any when he suddenly just dropped dead ?

          Here ya go Ro-any update on JR-no inquest,foul play not suspected,all that blow wow…

          ‘The news, however, is not simply that Clinton is coming to Miami. This sort of fundraiser happens all the time here. What’s noteworthy is that Clinton is coming to Miami four days after the Miami Herald published a stunning investigation into his noted friend, billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, a convicted sex criminal who is accused of raping or abusing at least 80 underage girls‘

          Bro-you can’t stop,won’t stop with the Benny Hill act huh,thankfully we have laws protecting women these days from creepy dirty oul fellas like you.

          1. rotide

            I’m not your bro, pal.

            Literally everything you typed yourself in that last comment has exactly no basis in reality. No wonder you had to go to america

    Thursday should be an interesting day in an interesting week.
    The ECB is expected to signal an end to QE which has seen it pump €2.6trillion into the bond market since 2015.
    This could result in higher EU government and corporate debt just as the Eurozone economy gets sluggish – German GDP contracted in Q3.
    Blighty ticked along at 0.4% growth.

        1. Ollie Cromwell

          Meanwhile in Blighty …
          Official ONS figures released today have revealed that the UK employment rate is estimated to be 75.7%, a significant increase on last year’s 75.1%, and the highest rate since estimates began in 1971. Similarly unemployment is at near record lows at 4.1%, down from 4.3% this time last year.

            Is Mam looking forward to Christmas ?
            I’d say she’s well-used to a man arriving with a full sack …

          2. Brother Barnabas

            yes, has always been fond of christmas

            are you – albeit obliquely – suggesting that my mother is a promiscuous woman with an open-door policy towards casual sexual partners?

          3. Brother Barnabas

            well, we’re talking about an obese woman in her 60s with a severe case of harlequin ichthyosis. i genuinely believe she’s faithful to you. probably not by choice.

          4. Ollie Cromwell

            Now I know why she replaced her front door with a turnstile.
            She has some stamina I’ll give her that.

  8. Spud

    No mention of the DM front page headline re the ‘sportsperson’?
    Rumour of a proper 12 year stretch inside if found guilty…

      1. millie st murderlark

        Ro, that seems like baseless speculation on your part.

        Unless there’s something you know that the papers don’t?

    1. Starina

      if he’s a famous sportsperson he’ll probably be found not guilty, regardless. have to think of his career, you know.
