Apparently shipments of old masters are backing up too, nervously for some! :D

Unfortunately, though, the shipments of old cow manure from Dorset continue to flow unabated .:D

He’s certainly the world’s leading producer of BS, but unfortunately for Steve if everything he says is true it will all fall on his head!

Win, win.  Happy days.  :D

Did they waive the right completely Iris or did they just allow a few years earlier than was going to happen anyway ? I can’t remember. All I remember is Blair saying it would be 15,000 and it turned out to be 500,000. It was at that point , as I recall , that the Leave campaign started to gain traction.

From memory they followed Sweden in waiving the right completely.

Doesn't make it right. I have made many bad decisions in my business life over the years and have been able to admit I was wrong!

The referendum result absolutely does make it right.

That’s the way you make important decisions in a democracy.

Not by listening to miscellaneous opinions after the vote.

Yes that is the way a democracy does indeed make important decisions, still doesn't mean a decision is the right one.

Are you actually saying that all democratic decisions have always been the correct one?!!

Yes, by virtue of the fact that they were democratic.

Can you name any democratic decisions of the people that were wrong?

The funny thing is a lot of the Brexit camp were and still have been complaining about being under a 'faceless' dictatorship from Brussels, when all along the UK could have done thing differently. As I have stated before they had an 8 year time span to allow what ended up as a 'flood' of Bulgarians and other unwanted's into the country, but waived the right......

Also heard a lot of people who landed in Germany last night had to stay at the airport over night and need to have a Covid test......

One of the many things Tony Blair has to answer for.

I agree. was a big mistake and it gave a big boost to the anti-EU section of society. But as you say, really the problem was in the UK government rather than the EU, which gave us a breathing space we refused

Ironic in a way that pro Europe Blair sowed the seeds etc.
