    Plus there wasn't a clear north/south divide, more of a swiss cheese and they're not in the EU...

    That's not good enough. The West Country should be separate from the rest of southern England, then we can impose hefty import tariffs on cider, Cheddar cheese, pasties and cream teas. Oh, and ban holiday homes.

    Only now?

    The referendum didn't cause that same question?
    Brexit means Brexit didn't cause that same question?
    Promising to spend the same money on 48 different things didn't cause that same question?
    Parliamentary deadlock didn't cause that same question?
    The political declaration being vague gibberish didn't cause that same question?

    Personally I think the Tories know exactly what they're doing and their seeming incompetence is designed to manufacture a crisis - One which will 'require' the selling of public assets to American companies to get a 'fair' deal.
    American-style laissez-faire capitalism is what this was always about. That's why they threw the DUP under the bus by creating a border in the Irish Sea, to appease the American congress due to their pride in the Good Friday Agreement.
    It's time to dust off Naomi Klein's "The Shock Doctrine" for another read.

    Agreed.

    There is a plan and it's been the same plan from the start. The rest of it has just been a pantomime.

    Why do you think I'm planning to leave the UK? It's not a flounce; it's flight.

    If you create a border there will be a border, absolutely no one could have seen that coming:p

    I've run out of things to throw at the TV every time Boris either lies or says 'world beating'.

    He's such a gobshite, seems to think we have the memory of a goldfish and are just as gullible.

    No no, this was definitively settled for all time in 1966 when we defeated the entire world (never mind the details of an entire continent boycotting the event)

    Ah yes, one of the proudest moments of my life. Not the research I've done over the years spanning medical, aeronautical and automotive sectors, but watching a bunch of overpaid men kicking an inflated pig bladder around a field. It also happened 22 years before I was born, but that's not the point.

    One day, I might understand why football is so popular. If I manage to sustain a severe head injury*.

    *with apologies to my fellow Bit-Techers who are perfectly entitled to enjoy whatever they want to, provided it doesn't impact anyone.
