Britain is deservedly getting it in the neck from the EU over the WIndrush scandal, because our Home Office's incompetence casts doubt over the future of EU nationals here: https://chrisgreybrexitblog.blogspot.co.uk/2018/04/how-windrush-scandal-connects-with.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_mediu...

Re: Brexit News For Brexiteers, please see the link

That is something like 14% growth pa. Does that sound plausible to you? Could well be. A 14% growth in trade doesn't depend on 14% growth in output, does it? So quite plausible. yes, but see the LSE paper which I posted I don't think that any of that necessarily negates the predicted growth in trad...

yep, probably Canada DOES think it might get a better trade deal, from its own viewpoint, with Britain compared to the one with the EU. Is this good news for Britain?

How much additional trade will we have to do with Australia to compensate for lost EU trade, coffee? Why are we going to lose trade with the EU, Alan? And who loses out? Goodness. Glad you bit.

I cannot believe we are arguing about such trivia. True, that! Of course the straw man thing depends on irrelevance, that is just what I said. And anyway, what is incorrect about saying that Brexiters have been concentrating on a particular claim, which Dunt termed "a specific script"? He...

Re: Tell Easter egg manufacturers to go plastic free-Petition

So plastic is "a bad thing". Ok, let's suppose it is. But is this really the way to change anything? By shreeking "Sign now to pile pressure on the top Easter egg manufacturers to remove plastic from their packaging, so we can stop putting tonnes more plastic into the oceans." Fr...

Shame on all of you Brexiters. How dare you call yourself a humanist? Ahem! So speaks one who (seemingly) doesn't give a stuff about the multi-millions cast into poverty by Brussels, and the millions more whose escape from poverty is being blocked by Brussels.
