    I love Norway. I love Iceland.

    Please, don't get involved with the UK, we'd ruin you.

    Edit: As for Liechtenstein, I've driven through the Princes' oversized garden, didn't stop.

    Maybe things would've gone better if we just sent the DUP to negotiate with the EU, they seem to be running the show regardless so it would've saved a lot of bother.

    The full negotiation process:
    DUP: "We demand that the EU recognize the earth is 6000 years old"
    EU: "Oh bugger off ya c**ts, no deal it is"

    Based on the bungling of contracts thus far you could probably charge a lot and do it twice.

    I can provide a Finnish option for the speaking sense to the UK establishment buffet cart.

    Although a good old Scottish 'get tae fuk' still sounds the best.

    So having read some of that guys other tweets it seems i was wrong to say EU membership is dependent on the 1972 EU act, it's a matter of international law, unfortunately he doesn't say what international law enshrines our membership, is it EU law, an international bodies law, what law and where is our EU membership enshrined? :confused:

    It would tickle me if none of our laws actually forced our membership and it was, after all, entirely someone else's choice. Sovereignty up in this mother.

    Petition at 3.5 million.

    In other news, Farage goes an odd shade of beetroot when Soubrey confronts him with the truth, you know him being the elite and all

    We could go the whole hog and just let our "democratic" Queen toss a coin.

    1972 EU Act enshrines it in on our end
    EU law enshrines it on their end
    But art 50 on the EUs side does say that it is possible to leave unilaterally
    So logic would dictate that the EU would have no choice other than to let a member go if it chooses to leave, else the EU would be violating its own art 50.

    Plus there is this in art 50:
    The way I read it that means that no actual change in EU law or anything like that is required for the withdrawal to take effect.

    But the whole thing is hideously complicated and lacking in precedent (the closest thing to a precedent is the half assed NATO withdrawal of France in 1966, which wasn't really a withdrawal at all but rather just a reduction in participation level).

    I've always liked Iceland.

    I really like Norway too. I work with a Norwegian woman and she doesn't beat around the bush either! (If you'll pardon the accidental sexual connotations of "beating round the bush"...)

    Every time I see that dipshit I cannot work out how anyone believes him. The second a question is asked he stumbles over his own tongue!

    Although I suppose to answer a question he'd have to listen first..

    Absolutely. It is in keeping with the EU spirit.

    It is a universal truth known to all, that any swearing and insult sounds better in Scottish.

    That's what i was thinking too, like you say the whole thing is hideously complicated and lacking in precedent, it seem though that the EU would be opening themselves up to all sorts of potential legal challenges if they were to just cease applying the treaties, especially after that indicative vote from parliament on not leaving without a deal.

    I know people are right when they say legally we leave at the end of two years (29th March) without an extensions, or whatever the new date is now it has been extended, but i do question the willingness of the EU when it comes to potentially testing that in the courts, i suspect there's a strong case to be made that if the EU did rightly tell us to bugger off that some years later we'd find that they didn't act in accordance with the principal of not forcing a member state to do something against its will.

    Can you imagine the sort of mess that would create.

    Meanwhile the March to Leave continues to embody Brexit: on its second day, plans to cross the River Tees by the famous Transporter Bridge had to be abandoned when the group arrived only to find the bridge did not operate on Sundays. It has also been banned from National Trust properties because the charity maintains an apolitical position and does not allow political events on its properties. As such plans to start Tuesday’s leg of the walk at picturesque Fountains Abbey had to be hastily rearranged to a lay-by.Thursday’s start from Nostell Priory, in West Yorkshire was also cancelled and a pub car park was announced as the convening point instead.
