  1. I haven't implied he is... (not intentionally anyway).
  2. Protectionism, isolation and nationalism... nothing has ever gone wrong when a country follows that mantra... Putin must be laughing his socks off.
  3. IF he stays fit and IF he shows the right attitude and IF he gets a work permit, this will be a great signing. Big IF though...
  4. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/jan/20/jeremy-corbyn-labour-copeland-byelection-gillian-troughton Interesting developments in Copeland. Enough to hold the seat?
  5. I'd suggest their point is that ranking is at risk of being lost as the service is being eroded and despite the ranking, continuous improvement is essential.
  6. Some really good articles on that site. There is a huge political war going on for the heart and soul of the Western world and it's the Russians winning currently.
  7. Odds on him actually following through with that statement?
  8. It doesn't make them look weak; it's an attempt to warn 'our friends' not to sell our operatives out. We have some pretty good strategic capabilities in our disposal that even the Americans need. No better place to warn them than in the media. (All that of course depends on if it was the Security Services leaking information)
  9. I see HSBC have confirmed around 1000 investment banker positions are off to Paris. Reading the BBC comments section is interesting; some are very happy they are leaving. Whilst I understand people's hatred/disdain for bankers, the loss of 1000 40-45% income tax payers isn't something to rejoice at, especially if more banks like UBS et al do follow suit.
  10. I'd forgotten about that... it bit like the £350m a week claim!
  11. I don't disagree with much of that; just the bit in bold. Scotland (the constituencies) on mass voted to remain in the EU; every single one of her MPs are therefore entitled to represent the views of their constituents. I have no doubt her intent is to demand another referendum for an independent Scotland but let's not forget her MPs are entitled to oppose what's put before them at Westminster.
  12. I listened to the interview; no recognition that the EU's interests may actually change as they seek to manoeuvre negotiations to favour them as the UK becomes a competitor rather than a member. I really hope he's right but lots of blue sky optimism being thrown around; the reality may be a little bit different.
  13. Brexiters - "#fakenews #fakenews #fakenews #fakenews" (Despite video evidence to the contrary)
  14. Possibly both according to the PM: "It would, to all intents and purposes mean not leaving the EU at all. That is why both sides in the referendum campaign made it clear that a vote to leave the EU would be a vote to leave the single market."
