And when in four or five years time when we want to get out, the EU having gone all pear-shaped, with whom will we be dealing? People who love us or those who will blame us for their problems? Desperate people, maybe, in charge of a project they can't sacrifice and a populace who can see it isn't for them?

We need a resolution dated in the near term whereby the relationship with the EU is severed to be replaced by a trade arrangement. Of which the most important part is the date. Fixed, and soon.

PCar, I skipped to para 33. I would translate it as follows:

"If we sign this Treaty there is no exit clause and we might not be able to leave. However, the Government is in a hole, and the politics of the situation mean we should perhaps just sign it anyway and keep our fingers crossed that things will turn out OK in the end."

I haven't gone bust - that should read "busy". Oops, too early in the morning for this retired person.

Pcar, thanks for the link. I'm bust today but will look at it later.

re: Cables

like the £500 audiophile mains cables ?

or even the £185 ones....

I'd wager that there are people out there that can tell the audible difference between windmill electricity and solar elecricity..... they'd be "more natural sounding" :-)

I've had some people trying to sell me oxygen free HT cables for LPG engines ......

Jacob Rees-Mogg discusses with BBC his views on the implications of Theresa May's proposals for the implementation of Brexit.
My take to put it mildly - she has made a 'pig's ear' of things

Thanks for rebuttal.

I read it 100% wrong. Somehow my tired brain read Remainiac Sackur as Owen P an insular Brexit loon.

Sorry for being wrong and the pejorative post to you.

+1

imo votes on EU anything should be free/unwhipped

I was surprised and angered when I saw "number of" Conservative Whips yesterday - 19

315 Conservative MPs = 19 Conservative Whips for 296 Conservative MPs

1 Whip (Bully, briber, blackmailer...) for every 15 MPs. Strip out Ministers & PM - 1 whip for ~8 backbenchers.

imo not good for democracy.
