    The only downside of Varadkar to call an election next week is that Harris’ vote of confidence wouldn’t take place.

    Michelle is looking well. A three years rest has been kind to her, Arlene, I won’t be unkind. Downside to Stormont being restored, the NI politicians will be on the telly news again.

            Not particularly Virtue. Part of my post was deleted by broadsheet, but you didn’t disappoint with your second post.
            If you wish to continue in the same vein as before that’s up to you. Don’t be surprised though when you’re called out.

        It’s the first time I saw or heard of her, but by the sounds of it she’s prepared to take on what she perceives as bullying – probably in a professional capacity. I don’t think she is a wannabe GOD.

          She’s one of those “patriot” “free speech” bigots. If she does run, it’ll be another wasted deposit.

      You do realise that the UK is accessing 3rd country markets because of their piggybacking on trade agreements secured EU?. You blighters will have to stand on your own two feet once Brexit finally happens.

        The export figures quoted above are for the year between Sept 2018-Sept 2019
        In mid-Sept 2018 the sterling-dollar exchange rate was 1.30.
        In mid-Sept 2019 it was 1.25.
        Today it’s at 1.31.
        You call that a collapse ?

          Varadkar says he has decided the election date, but can’t tell anyone before Tuesday as there is some unfinished business to deal with. No doubt
          – finishing off the bits and pieces to suit his broadband mateys
          – filling out board positions with cronies
          – moving the Moriarty Report from behind the heater to behind the filing cabinet
          etc.
          The Boy Harris will be thankful, as will the Boy Murphy. Pressure off.

    Britain’s biggest non-EU export destination is the USA.
    The EU does not have a trade agreement with the US despite years of TTIP negotiations.
    Neither does it have a trade deal with the UK’s second biggest non-EU destination China.
    Is this the start of another day of you making a fool of yourself ?

      Has the UK trade agreements with those? Nope.
      Have you looked at the EUs trade with those countries? Again the UK piggybacking of European relations.
      Tip for you – familiarize yourself with the customs tariff book / online facilities. In particular refer to preferential rates of duty for products to/from various countries that are below the WTO rates.

      You, like the Mary Poo yesterday scuttled away quickly when asked to back up your posts. Noticeable void in both of your capabilities.

      When is this No Deal Brexit that you were adamant about, coming to pass?

            Eh, no. That would be your good self BB. After all, you informed us here categorically that you would have no qualms about doing something illegal. Bad boy.

          …the no deal scenario seems closest to what was voted for in the UK referendum and Boris’s strategy seems to rely on the EU crumbling and conceding that the EU needs the UK more than the other way round…this will deliver a no deal Brexit and the EU will be to blame…

            Like many other things Boris’s emphatic general election win will also change the dynamic of the coming negotiations.
            For instance security, which May took off the negotiating table, is now very much back on it.
            Don’t underestimate the importance of GCHQ to Western intelligence.
            I’ve a feeling that the odd bump on the road apart these trade talks will go smoother than people expect.
            The EU no longer has the option of prevaricating while Britain’s opposition parties try every trick in the book to stymie things.
            There’s going to be a lot less grandstanding in Brussels.

          2. GiggidyGoo

            Well, I can see the EU caving slightly alright to be honest. Somehow I doubt it’ll be the rout I think you’re trying to portray it as.

        2. GiggidyGoo

          Well, you tried digging yesterday, packed up your tools and left. Not much of a digger are you Mr. ‘No deal Brexit is on its way’ ? Heh heh heh etc. Pip pip. I say, what?

        Sunday lunch atmospherics in your home are probably what the French would call ‘bousculade’ or ‘chahut’, millie.

            That’s great that you had the bissouuuuuneses at the end – I have been told to Allez with a couple of words extra that makes it impolite. I’ve never been around long enough for the eye rolling – might have happened after my exit.

    Very disappointed that I can’t read what “Harry could be on to…” by Brendan O’Connor. What a manipulative blowup by the media, are people not free to do what they like, it’s astounding the coverage of this story.

    Fascinating pictures coming out of Iran tonight.
    Tehran University students refusing to walk over US and Israel flags deliberately painted on a path.
    Soleimani posters bring set alight and women in particular leading anti-government protests.
    It’ll be brutally out down, of course, but clear evidence of growing anger at the regime and its lies over the downed Ukrainian airliner.

      Steady on there, Giggdy is still coming to terms with not being able to blame it on America or the Israelis.

        The predictable conspiracy theorists got it all wrong this time round. I’m tempted to think that conspiracy theories are a conspiracy.
