Quick Question
Is there a definitive work exposing the flaws of the Stern Report ?

Yes, Stern presumed Mann was correct.

It seems to be largely unremarked - but Martin Schultz has spiraled down in smoke from the EU political sky - I had him pinned as a more difficult character than the drunken wiretapping Luxembourger crook.

We don't hear nearly enough of what Junker's "Sir Humphrey" Martin Selmayr is up to... after all his hand is working Monsieur Barnier 's mouth - non?

Junckers denies that he plots to raid tax revenues.... nah ...nope ...never .. Just the piggie banks. I put it in a SAFE GERMAN place ...that can be trusted ...you understand.

The European Union has [may have] backed down from its plans to insert a ‘punishment clause’ into its Brexit deal with the United Kingdom

It is thought that the Commission was forced to remove the ‘punishment clause’ after as many as 12 member-state governments rebelled against the proposal, scared that it would cause the EU’s negotiations with Britain to fail and precipitate a clean Brexit with no transition period — depriving the bloc of British funding and inflicting substantial damage on its exporters, for whom Britain is their single largest market.

The desire for UK Money emphasised again.

PM May, as Dyson et al have said we hold the upper hand, stop appeasing EU bullies. Do what they fear and walk away.

yup... he seems to have operated in the murky Leigh Day / PIL world... It's quite entertaining to see him lose it in interviews where that trademark composure evaporates... It's an Achilles heel that few seem to have exploited.

I actually didn't look closely when he was elected - but his jumping on a series of self evidently lame hobby horses got me to wondering and reading around a bit and coming to the conclusion that he's as much of a fruitcake as McDonnell & Co - but he's a solicitor and they are generally are quieter than barristers... Sadiq seems like one of those speakers that drones the committee to sleep and then passes his motions ....

If one reviews Sadiq's antics (and client history) as a solicitor and his video-ed performances in council meetings - I think it's clear he's a posturing weasel who carefully selects and orchestrates his public exposure.

Exhibit 1: Mayor of London Sadiq Khan​ grows angry, resorts to childish taunts as London Assembly​ members David Kurten​, Andrew Dismore​ and Andrew Boff​...

Stew, the PoW is a pillock when he says " reefs are vanishing rapidly". They're not, as you know. It's only the academics who argue that they are not who are disappearing ; eg: Peter Ridd
