    The all-new-ish Brexit Thread

    I think we’re ready for the Bobby Ewing Brexit. The one were he comes out of a shower sequence in Dallas and announces it’s all been a dream.

    The all-new-ish Brexit Thread

    At least with May’s agreement with EU, we have been offered the chance to extend the transition to 20XX. This was one of the first things Barnier addresses in his press conference. Given that we are nowhere near ready to leave and certainly hadn’t been gearing our economy to leave prior to the referendum, this is a major plus for me.

    I agree that Cameron’s motivation was to quell the schism in the Conservative party, but I think you’re making an error in judgement if you believe that a remain win would have strengthened our hand in our future negotiations with the rest of the EU. Calling the referendum was always a blunder in those terms.

    Calling the referendum was always a tactical error by Cameron imo. Even if remain had won, we’d essentially called our own bluff in front of the EU and weakened our future negotiating position.

    Yes, seems sensible to me. Why are you fuming so much?

    Love Barnier’s ‘nod nod, wink wink’ press conference mention of being able to extend the transition period as part of the agreement.

    I’ve been lucky enough to visit Ontario and British Colombia. Toronto, Vancouver, Whistler etc are great places to see. Really like the outlook of the Canadians that I met.
  8. Would Danny McGuire rather fight a horse sized duck or 100 duck sized horses? We know last month that Stefan Ratchford was concerned about tackling a massive duck beak - what’s Danny’s strategy here?

    Magic weekend confirmed in Liverpool

    Yes, I’ve sat in every part of that ground apart from the new main stand. It’s not great comfort levels compared to say the Etihad, the Emirates or Wembley. Anfield is located in an area that’s quite poor, like a lot of northern football areas, but I’ve personally never had any bother off anyone apart from the odd kid looking to make a few quid when you park your car in a residents area. Liverpool itself has a fantastic array of things to do day and night. I would stay over and try to get the best experience. I think it would be great if extra transport could be laid on to ferry people up Scotland Rd from the city centre.

    Could you not travel in from Liverpool city centre for the games at Anfield? It really isn’t that far. The city itself has some great pubs and bars.

    Is Trump hiding behind the same US servicemen whose sacrifice he couldn’t be bothered to pay tribute to because it was raining?
  12. I give up and it’s probably best to leave you to fume away.
  13. Not think if there’s good games to be had outside the top flight, then they deserve the biggest sporting stage? Also don’t Championship fans, who you clearly want to turn out for the Challenge Cup final, deserve an opportunity to perhaps see a game featuring a side that they support? Or should games at Wembley just be the exclusive preserve of Super League clubs?
  14. Great news that it is official on both counts. Adds even more interest to the upcoming season for me.
  15. Fair enough, seems like an odd bit of scheduling then
