I'm not getting my detective microscope out here but didn't you only move to Wales in the last two years; around the time your boiler broke down?

Or was that someone else?

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I think you'll find if you consult the correct records that I came here for uni from 2003-2010 and then moved back again from last year! :capnscotty:

What about the boiler?

Only when one of his scripts overloads his car.

:lol:

Yeah the boiler recollection is correct and that happened in England towards the end of 2018, then we moved to Wales in January of 2019. But before that I had lived in Cardiff from 2003 until 2010.

It's embarrassing enough being on the same planet as the ERG, let alone the same country. :dread:

All joking and memes aside, why would the conservatives want a no deal brexit? Do they realize it will harm the economy? I always thought it was just UK exceptionalism but when push came to shove they'd back a deal....

They don't care about the UK economy, they care about their own personal financial gain and that of their close allies. No deal with strawberry float over millions of people but the "elite" will still benefit as their portfolio's have been shaped in such a way that this is the ideal outcome for them.

There's various reasons. Disaster capitalism, blind nationalism and pure incompetence are the main 3.

i think because basically the Brexit loonies pushed the more sensible lot out.
there actual loonies are a mix of genuine morons and people who are likely to profit from it and then leave or sit in their ivory towers.

I still think they'll go for a deal at the last minute. They're are just playing a game of chicken with the EU hoping that the EU will blink and give in to all their whacky demands. They've already gone on record saying that even though the May government said a lot of tough things in public, during the actual talks everybody was civil and just got on with putting some kind of deal together. They hope by showing that they are ready to take a no deal they will be able to get a better deal from the EU than they otherwise would have.

They also used the same tactic in the last round of talks, which overran the official timeline is I recall correctly.

Amusement under late capitalism is the prolongation of work.

I reckon the EU will give into something smaller like the fishing demands and the government will crow about David defeating Goliath while agreeing to everything else on the EU's terms.
