Useful place to start for up-to-date research:

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

11 countries, and we have trade agreements with 7 already, and are negotiating with 2 more.

Still, opportunities for all those fishermen to sell their fresh fish to instead of the EU I guess...

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

About 350 days since first UK covid case, and we still haven't controlled our borders properly...

Island nation, yet one of the highest covid rates per million population...

Still, at least the fish are happy (not going to link to that idiot).

RE: RIP: Jeremy Bulloch

Another link to the original trilogy leaves us ☹...

(Only 2 weeks left of 2020, how much more can it do!?)

RE: The Russia Report

Isn't thst (bullying) another report they're trying to redact/bury?

RE: Government halts support for fracking.

Not the most reliable source, but apparently Leadsom has said its only a temporary ban (until scientific understanding improves...).

Rutger Hauer RIP

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

He used a trick... he lied.

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

Exactly, we paid £267 million a week, not £350 million.

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

Osborne said that is what he would do / what would happen. He promised something in the future. And you've already pointed out that politicians can do that within the law.

Johnson said "we give £350 million to the EU". That was a lie, as we didn't.

Its strange how leavers like to apply the facts so loosely to support their arguments...

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

A manifesto is a promise of what might be done/happen in the future.

In this case a specific lie was made by a public official. E.g. he actually repeated the lie as the official statement of the mayor.
(And repeated it after it being written about by the head of the ONS.)

RE: [VIDEO] Avengers 4 Endgame

Not sure if I like the ending. Yes it makes perfect story telling sense... but with all the characters and stones there, it doesn't make sense to me.

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

Nearly 3 years since the referendum.

(Advisory, not a super majority, law breaking and bending on both sides, but mainly by leave.)

RE: Brexit

Plausible analysis of what Brexit means in near/mid/long term (not sure how many of the Brexit voters thought they were voting for this):

RE: Brexit

Now I'm completely for remain, but as things move on I worry if anyone in the government is actually doing anything to sort out this sort of stuff:

RE: Brexit

No nice EU trade deal for UK?

RE: Brexit

And me.

Why can't the country change its mind...

RE: Brexit

It could be in the interest of hard line Brexiters to stall. We then fall out of the EU with no deal, out of customs union, trade area and freedom of movement. UK then has to slash taxes, and state spending (e.g. privatise the NHS), and turn us into the large tax haven just off the EU shores.
