Oh my God. 

Jools calling people thick. 

Oh my actual f*cking God. 

Jools. Calling people thick. 

What is going on?! 

I'm struggling to think of an equal comparison. The Elephant Man calling someone ugly? Ozzy Osborne telling someone they swear too much?

I'm sure that many others have too.  It was clear that the pound was going to be driven down by the BofE, HMG, EU, IMF, CBI etc with negative propaganda and actions during Treason May's tenure.  The pound will recover soon after we have left and the positive reality of Brexit develops. 

Actually the currency is driven by international investors with little regard to what we on the UK think.

British technology start-ups are enjoying an unprecedented investment boom, shrugging off concerns over a no-deal Brexit.

High-tech companies have received a record $6.7 billion (£5.5 billion) in new funding this year, 50 per cent more than the same period last year. They are on course to secure more than $11 billion by the end of the year, easily eclipsing last year’s total of $8.7 billion, according to official figures. The data, from the government’s digital economy council, suggests that Britain remains the most attractive country in Europe for overseas tech investors.

:classic_biggrin:  Hopefully somebody will be along to point out the negative angle.

Happy to oblige - the pound is dirt cheap.

If you are a very wealthy Asian (or American) entrepreneur why wouldn't you buy a few small but promising British high tech companies for loose change. If I've been interpreting Ricardo's advice correctly that seems a very good value bet - some may fail but you may pick up a winner for a song or alternatively simply strip out the IP and move the business back home.

And its not just hi-tech - see that Greene King  has been bought by a Hong Kong businessman, Fullers last year, British Steel sold to the Turkish Army (!?)etc, etc.

Of course this 'new money' is doing our economy some good in the short term in the form of maintaining or increasing employment. But in the long term it is an ever increasing trend in which more and more significant British businesses are moving from British ownership and control, into foreign ownership and control - not just control of course but ultimately the profits (and probably much of the tax liable) will feed someone else's economy rather than ours.

Will that do?  :classic_biggrin:

Noticeable and boringly predictable -- we've had three and a half years of it.

Billock is one of a rare breed that thinks the BBC is Rightwing -- which is why he will soon be extinct 👍

Yes 30 days to go and do your homework properly this time. Last chance!

Actually it was a clever response to return the blame to where it belongs.

Exactly so - she's much smarter than him and used to dealing with much tougher characters than him, and of course she has done her homework.

She's shot Boris's fox with some precision and got a smiling Boris to thank her for it on live TV!      🤣

She may be getting close to retirement but she certainly hasn't lost her touch!

poor Doris

ere's no chance of anything that resembles a border between the ROI and NI

If the UK leaves on 'no deal' then NI will have to remain aligned with ROI customs and regulation

yep, the DUP are going to agree to that !

which will now undoubtedly see the DUP in discussions with the Remain side as they will want to see what is on offer after Doris is kicked out, as all they have to do is abstain, not vote against Doris but merely 'sit on the sidelines', and Doris will be gone

if for some reason (his lack of intellect ?) he doesn't grasp that fact then pretty much every other politician both sides of the border and the channel do - hence their not taking him seriously

a PM who cannot even introduce legislation never mind getting it passed and cannot command a majority in the house is not a functioning PM not credible head of government

a true House of Cards scenario with poor Doris as the joker in the pack

Both sides are playing poker. Only one side hasn't noticed the large, polished mirror behind them. Still.

No, you have had three and a half years of it. We voted remain. We don't have to lift a finger, agree on any proposal. You say out means out. We say fair enough. We say get on with it then.

I haven't seen all the coverage, so this point may have been made. In case not, supposedly Corbyn's plan to to call a vote of no-confidence pretty much as soon a Parliament starts back up in very early September (the 3rd or 4th?). Political analysts think this will be a close vote if it happens then.

What may prompt some (Tories mainly) currently envisaging voting against Boris to instead sit on their hands will be the argument that perhaps he will pull a backstop rabbit out of the hat by September 20.

They would have to be foolish or naive to think that is possible, but sometimes people will cling to a lousy argument to avoid making a tough decision. And if a no-confidence vote was delayed until late September, even if it was then passed, the 14-day who-wants-to-be-prime-minister-period and the weeks needed to arrange a general election would ensure it was held well after October 31.

oh dear. all that supposes that Doris and his lot are not aware of the numbers in any no confidence vote

that those behind the vote have not sorted out who will 'take the reins' after any vote

whether your post is out of ignorance or a wish to cling to your previous wish for a 'no dea' i Don't know but either show a distinct lack of basic knowledge of any of this
