Oh my! :O) - paperwork!

British red tape is better than forn red tape and is brilliant and world-beating and moonshot!

I'm sure JR-M's hilarious joke went down really well with the fishermen that largely, I believe, voted for this.

Many Scottish fishermen voted against but were then lied to to get them onside - and then dumped.

Tenesmus - 14 Jan 2021 23:31:17 (#6 of 493)

Ah, right, I was thinking of Cornish fishermen who voted for it mostly.

JR-M has an Etonian's hands/purse/skin/legs.

It amazes me how someone like that gets elected when he actually doesn't own all his constituents houses.

I gather there are shortages in both Northern and the Republic of Ireland.

Right. So it's a certainty that they will then.

'Good old knee-jerk reactions, where'd contemporary media be without them? Who'd click? And without them, where would we be?'

Hey, we've got our snow back too.

This does seem to be a Nat running theme.

BBC news saying the UK exports £15Bn of food and drink to the EU, or *did*..

One third of that is perishable.

So far, meat exports to the EU are only 25% of usual volumes. Not down 25% , only 25%.

SILENCE!!! No deal was avoided.

TauCeti - 15 Jan 2021 21:07:50 (#19 of 493)

A few weeks more and the disaster will be clear. Not long now.

AlanII - 15 Jan 2021 21:10:33 (#20 of 493)

Months.
