Brexit

Fed up talking videogames? Why?

Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?

True. It wouldn't surprised me if most of the PMs we have this side of the century spend their terms trying to get back into the EU under pressure from the next generation of voters and against opposition from EU states. Like the 70s all over again.

Nigel Farage has MEP salary docked to recoup misspent EU funds

Nigel Farage is being docked half his monthly MEP salary after a European parliament investigation alleged he had misspent public funds intended for staffing his office.

The former Ukip leader, who recently bemoaned being “53, separated and skint”, will lose €40,000 (£35,500) in total, the Guardian has learned, after European parliament auditors concluded he had misspent that amount of EU funds.

I meant we can reverse our decision of wanting to be in the EU or not; that was in response to CRD who said of the EU "once we leave we won't be going back".

Imagine the OUTRAGE though at losing the pound...

Re-joining would be a bigger headache than leaving, especially since you'd bet that Spain would insist on Gibraltar stuff before accepting anything...

At the moment we can reverse it. Once we have left we can’t.

Sure we might be able to rejoin, but there’s no guarantee of that and we would then be on worse terms. That isn’t a reversal as we would not ever get back the great deal we have at the moment.

For a no deal Brexit future when we can't import food at reasonable prices, so we'll all be forced to live off soups made from domestic produce, like leek and potato, parsnip and potato, or onion and potato.

Their desperation to be relevant would be funny if it wasn't for the fact that Jo Cox was murdered behind this sort of thinking.

Why aren't we discussing this?

Terrible place. They make you listen to 15 versions of Pretty Flamingo on a never ending loop. Wait until they get to Paul Weller.

Flamingo Land is quite local to me but I haven't been in years since getting a Merlin Annual Pass.
