If you are not willing to do the hard Brexit, your negotiation position is completely weak any way, as you admit that you need the EU and access to the EU market. If that is actually the case, you are better off in the EU than outside. Hard Brexit is no effective threat to the EU, it is just the de...Jump to post
what a patronising post. Crap like this is why I dislike so many Europeans. Given that your decision is questioned by yourself and given that your decision is costing me money, given your self proclaimed "motivation to give a statement", I think I have been very soft to you. It is the mos...Jump to post

Nope, I didn't believe in Brexteers like BoJo or Farage. I voted leave, because I don't like the colossal waste of money spent on the two parliament building system, which amounts to Billions spent over the years, which could be used for better causes. But nationalistic pride over not losing a seat...Jump to post

I was listening to Dutch radio this morning. There was an interview with a Dutch MP whom was dealing with Brexit. He has been talking to his British counterparts. He was quite shocked by the Brexiteers, they seem truly believing in the political unicorn, no sense of reality. Even when this MP tells ...Jump to post
Indeed. The Democratic-lead House of Representatives as of today has voted 8 times to re-open the government, to include the agencies that have absolutely nothing to do with the Department of Homeland Security or the border wall. The Senate has refused to take up those bills 8 times. Disgraceful. I...Jump to post

An article I read elsewhere citing economists said that crashes are not linear in their development, but will suddenly and exponentially shift toward them.

The biggest problem is that Britain didn't have any idea what they wanted out of Brexit and that is a very poor position to enter any negotiations. We have seen absolute chaos from the British side. The position of the EU has been very clear from the start: no cherry picking and the deal must be in ...Jump to post
I'm looking forward to the result of tonights vote in the HoC for the deal, but I'm a bit surprised that they will vote on proposed changes to the deal.

England is bound to leave the EU, and on a very non-political but personal level, I think that’s a very sad notion.

For the political connoisseur: Speaker of the House of Commons, The Right Honourable John Bercow, is one of the people I like to watch.
For entertainment value the House of Commons is brilliant. Much more brilliant then Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister.

Immediately after take-off, they were heading in the wrong direction. If you look at previous flights, they are way more to the north. And why going south when you reach India? I would be interested in what happened here.Jump to post

Indeed, why such a southern route.
Something doesn't add up. If a plane is intercepted, normally communication is restored and send on it's way, not forcefully landed.
The EU is preparing itself for all eventualities, one must not make the same mistake as the British and understand every preparation as a signal for a certain outcome.

It is kind of nice of the Canadians of course. There are rules about Federal employees accepting gifts. Basic rule: exchange time for money. There are (moral) rules to get paid if I work somewhere.
