Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

Meh. England being happy to have no political ties to other countries is old news by this point.

I'm looking forward to the polls after this:

Would losing a limb be a price worth paying for Brexit?
Would sacrificing your first born to the pagan god Breximus be a price worth paying for Brexit?
Would burning in the righteous fire of nuclear armageddon be a price worth paying for Brexit?

Guaranteed minimum 10% hard YES no matter the question.

I'm looking forward to the polls after this:

Would losing a limb 5% off the value of your Barratt home be a price worth paying for Brexit?
Would sacrificing your first born  your hummus supplies from Waitrose to the pagan god Breximus be a price worth paying for Brexit?
Would burning in the righteous fire of nuclear armageddon of your fortnight on the beach in Majorca be a price worth paying for Brexit?

Guaranteed minimum 10% 99% hard Yes No, no matter the question.

Of course it is, it probably always has.

The English are quite happy to be British/English and as long as we Jock, Taff, Mick go along with what the motherland wants and they'll throw the odd scrap/title to some then woohoo, let's have a party ; but as soon as anyone disagrees or gets uppity or makes life a tad difficult for the Guvnors - right off you go ; we don't need or want you.

Oh come on, Mixu. It's the Grauniad FFS. You have to take 50% of what cheerleaders like them and The Express say with a shovelful of salt. They are quoting "a GP" Dr Nick Mann - who appears to post on Hackney Momentum Youtube channel. Plus a Tony O'Sullivan of the Keep Our NHS Public lobby group. The factors quoted in the 6th last para certainly sound worrying - although I confess I don't know what "manufacturing diversion" and "parallel exporting" is. But I do know that one could hazard a  guess that these 2 individuals might just not be dispassionate and objective in assessing Brexit impacts.

Probably from a guy who's in his 70s with f**k all life left to live but still telling teenagers it's a price worth paying

Anyone on here from the Sutherland area?

How's the shiny new spaceport coming along?   

Quote

The UK Space Agency said the move could pave the way for spaceflights from the site between Tongue and Durness.

Highlands and Islands Enterprise will be given £2.5m from the UK government to develop the spaceport which could be up and running by the early 2020s.

 I have a vested interest👽

Hope it's hi-viz with all that smoke and fire likely to be scorching the area ??

Why didn't they build the proposed spaceport in, say, Kent and while they're at it, let's get the nuclear subs base transferred immediately to maybe Henley-on Thames.  De pfeffellll can have his toys on his doorstep instead of endangering other parts of the (4 equal countries 😂) union, a safe distance from him and his fellow tossers.

Vent over ☺️

They're applying for planning permission next month, can't fucking wait for the first launch! They hope to start construction next year which should take 18 months.

You should see a map of where the UK has dumped all its toxic and nuclear waste.  If that doesn't make any Scottish person angry there's something wrong with them.

Probably because the overheated economy of Kent makes the purchase of large amounts of land there uneconomical and because Henley is so far inland that it would not be navigable for our, or our allies, nuclear fleets.

I grew up around the Dockyard in Rosyth area during the 60s and 70s and the number of child/teen leukemia cases was both alarming and frightening.  Rosyth, Inverkeithing, Dunfermline and, I believe, Oakley were blighted by deaths during this time.  It was consensus that the "behind the fence" area in the Dockyard (where the nuclear subs were housed and re-fitted) had a big part to play in these deaths.  I personally knew 3 people who died - 2 of whom were close friends.

The MOD, as you would expect, closed ranks and denied any connection.

The pall (proverbially speaking) still hangs over the area from that time.

What a bizarre non-sequitir. Unless you are being too post modern for me and I'm being whooshed. 

There are many good reasons to criticise Boris Johnson. Failing to build a deep water port for submarines half way up a muddy river is not a good reason. 

Not even sure what the imagined problem with the spaceport is. Fire apparently.

That's disgusting.  Scotland also has the highest rate of MS in the world my sister has it.  They don't know what causes it or why rates are so high here.

There are many places to build a port, southend, portsmouth, Southampton, plymouth.  Dodging the issue.  As for the spaceport why choose the car North of Scotland

Terrible about your sister, mate.  Unfortunately, lots of diseases are more prevalent in Scotland with diet and lifestyle carrying the can for most.  However, like MS, there's no logical reasoning as to why it's so rife.

If only we were all born with the surname Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, then we wouldn't get any of these serious illnesses and live long and wealthy lives.

If we had a Scottish media rather than another country's media projected into our homes none of this would be possible it would be politically unsustainable for a government to be dumping for and nuclear waste (mostly from another country) in our beautiful small country while we didn't even need or want nuclear energy or weapons anyway.
