Re: Why Did Vote LEave Win?

Saddler, noswaith dda. - Yes, I am Welsh, so don’t need to be told Plaid’s position on Brexit...thank you. Keltz is accurate as usual. (See above). Re my previous post, your point is?......... All I did was report Johnson’s most recent comments on his immigration policy. Seeing as immigration was a ...

Re: Why Did Vote LEave Win?

My goodness Saddler, if you find us all so obnoxious on here I question why you have joined? Incidentally an appointment can be made in our local doctors surgery on the same day you ring up about one. - Not all of the U.K. is inundated with Eastern European’s wanting to deprive the U.K. population o...

Re: Why Did Vote LEave Win?

Some of us share our time between the UK and Greece Saddler. I hope I am reasonably informed about matters in both countries. I thought you expressed the concept about being stupid, or an expert very well Warwick. We can all be ‘ignorant’ about a matter through lack of knowledge, not because we are ...

Re: Why Did Vote LEave Win?

I agree that there were so many other issues in the election, and that the referendum was purely about leaving the EU, but Johnson repeatedly stated during the election run up that this was the opportunity for people to put an end to the debate for a second referendum, and for the public to use the ...

Re: Withdrawal Agreement and Our Rights

Neither Johnson nor Corbyn should be PM. One is a compulsive liar, and the other is left of left and not leadership material. Having said that, Corbyn is reported to be more honest than the ‘Blond Baboon’......as Jess Phillips recently called him! I quite like that description! I see ‘BB,’ (aka BJ),...

Re: Chania to Vienna ? Route suggestions please

Austrian friends do the Patras to Trieste route annually. They catch the ferry from Iraklio to Piraeus, drive to Patras, then ferry to Trieste. They have a house just south of Vienna, and the roads from Trieste to there are very good. I think it is only about a 5 hours drive for them. It is certainl...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Absolutely correct BST. The Government has only made ‘loose promises’ about subsidising these farmers for two years after we leave the EU. The NFU has repeatedly claimed Hill Farmers, such as those in Wales, will no longer be able to function without the subsidies. They will not be able to sell thei...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Our daughter is in the same position as your son Warwick. She has a very demanding job, works long hours, then has a young daughter to take to ballet, horse riding, gymnastics etc at weekends.....as well as trying to fit in spending time with a husband who works away from home all week. I know she i...

No old article, and in the Guardian, but it is worth a read.

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Johnson won’t agree to another Scottish independence for at least a couple of years.....and my guess is it will be even longer. By then we will all have a better idea of how things are panning out after the election, plus with Brexit. I think this will be a good thing, as it will help the Scottish p...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Of course Scotland is a a country....as are Wales and Ireland. - History tells us so. They have their own cultures and languages. It is just that over the centuries they have been conquered and ruled by others, and they have now morphed in to the U.K. There will always be nationalists wanting to rev...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

I think you give too much credit to people re their knowledge of the Brexit Warwick. You are a man of detail, and as such you are knowledgeable on everything you research. Many people just ‘read the headlines’ and not the ‘small print’ in life. I agree with you totally about more information being a...

Slightly different percentages, (as I mentioned earlier), but a clear explanation of how the voting went.

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

The House of Lords will keep out of matters. The statistics show that 47% of voters in the election voted for either the Brexit Party or the Conservatives. 53% voted for ‘remain parties,’ or Labour....who were offering a second referendum. It is obviously why Johnson did not want another Brexit refe...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Your vote in the U.K. is in a marginal seat then Guy? Am I correct? This will be an interesting week ahead.
