    So the UK is finished says Theresa Mayhem

    Of course, I simply refer to trade as I see it as fundamental to the vitality of the UK.

    and? Even if that is true it does not alter what I said. Rightly or wrongly the EU does not have a responsibility to actually do anything. The ball is firmly in the UK's court, what they do with it is up to them.

    Where does the idea that the EU actually have a responsibility to do anything come from? The onus is well and truly on the UK to get a deal, the remaining members of the EU are not under the same pressure. You only have to look at the media across Europe to see that. In the UK the whole Brexit thing is headline news pretty much every day, elsewhere in Europe it gets the occasional mention but is not that high up on the news agenda. My own opinion on Brexit is that irrespective of personal views the public voted to leave. The UK should therefore leave but seek to get the best deal possible as future trade with the remaining EU members is essential. When it comes down to it a no deal Brexit is still effectively one form of a deal, I personally don’t think it would be a good one although I can accept that some think this is best possible outcome. A no deal Brexit strikes me as cutting off your nose to spite your face, the UK won’t suddenly stop having to trade with the EU. No one (Leave, Remain or even Woody) actually knows what will happen. If I was forced to make a prediction I would think it’ll end up with lots more pointless shouting about no deal before the UK basically capitulates. If I had to guess I’d say the UK will end up with basically a reduced membership that will satisfy no side, giving them most of the responsibilities and no voting rights. The main side of effect of it all will be years of infighting within the major political parties, with all sides looking to attribute blame to the other.
  4. I guess it is harmless enough to admit it with the protection of an anonymous internet forum but still possibly not the smartest thing to do. Anyway, doesn’t add anything to the thread topic so I’ll leave it there.
  5. Is admitting guilt and seemingly also admitting perjury a good idea?

    Flat Earth?

    The Apollo missions marked the first event where humans traveled through the Van Allen belts, which was one of several radiation hazards known by mission planners. The astronauts had low exposure in the Van Allen belts due to the short period of time spent flying through them. Apollo flight trajectories bypassed the inner belts completely, passing through the thinner areas of the outer belts.

    Eh, read the question I actually asked rather than answering the one in your head.

    I believe that's known as the Paul's Got Wright defence.

    So Woody, do you know whether the system suggested by Labour is 100% identical to the Universal Credit system introduced by the Conservatives? The Universal Credit system has indeed failed. You ask who didn't see that coming? Well, apparently the Government that actually introduced it.

    I haven't "done" anything. I simply posted background reference material for Universal Credit, as ever 2 + 2 = 5 for you.

    Would you say the Conservative Party was more leave or more remain? I suspect more leave, which begs the question why didn't they vote a "winner" as Prime Minister? I think many are simply laying down their excuses early.

    Ouch, he cuts like a knife.

    I guess one rules out the other.
