May is foolishly following the same Cameron footsteps.
Juncker & Co. will not permit us to negotiate a 'special status' with the EU they are only set on domination.
Just walk away and we will see its the EU that's broken not the UK.

As for a 4am flight to Brussels....... jeeeeez that was desperate negotiating.
Reminds me of a Sandy Shaw song in 1967, Puppet on a String.

The Betrayal of Brexit

Democracy is being betrayed. The Brexit terms agreed in Brussels this morning, making concessions on everything from ECJ jurisdiction to ‘regulatory alignment’ between the EU and UK, read like a prelude to surrender. It’s becoming clearer by the day that the Brexit negotiations are no such thing – rather, this is the trading away of our mass democratic vote to the benefit of the European Union by Labour, Liberal & Tory Parties that never wanted Brexit in the first place.

We need to recognise the historic nature of what is taking place. The biggest democratic mandate in our history is being smothered in slow-motion, killed by concession. As those who claim to represent us set about undermining us, it’s high time we, the public, took back control.

Treacherous spineless Appeaser May has surrendered to EU and effectively kept us in EU for next ten years.

Accepting regulatory alignment means we will be subject to EU laws, but no input or vote on them and no free trade with other countries.

Sickening sell out.

.
Ministers are mistaken. Regulatory alignment is Single Market membership in all but name

This is what the UK is currently facing if we choose to accept regulatory alignment. We will not be in control of our laws; we will have no say over how they’re formulated, and we will become rule-takers in a countless number of policy areas. And whilst the Government may try to calm people’s nerves with the notion of ‘mutual recognition’, the truth is that the only rules that will be recognised will be the EU’s own.

This is not what people voted for last June. They wanted to see a real change in how this country is run. They wanted politicians to do things differently, and not to be hamstrung by Brussels nor be able to blame the EU for their own shortcomings. And crucially, they voted to take back control.

It would therefore be wholly unacceptable if we were forced into a deal where we were unable to create our own regulatory system which suits the needs of British business, and instead be subject to rules designed and imposed by Brussels.

MSM? C4 News was ecstatic and claimed it was a win for all our people.

From Anthony W
"Thanks to the Chico Police Department and officer Jim Parrott, I learned today that we were able to shut down a person living in Windsor Ontario who has been serially harassing me and threatening me and my family for over a year. "

It doesn't say arrested but says the troll was traced and "shut down"

" find clear evidence that they do not deny AGW,"
I could flippantly say ' we agree there's some AGW in GW, but we think it's possibly a small degree and alarmists are certain it's a high degree"
BUT I wouldn't even go that far
Yes - Climate is in a warming cycle
Yes - The earth's climate has an anthropogenic aspect
BUT the initial premise AGW assumes the human effect is overall warming
.. ActuallyI think the feedbacks are so complex and poorly understood, ( I'm thinking soot and weird feedbacks etc) that the net human part could actually be negative .

I remember arguing in the past that humans must have an effect but I would not recommend we use that because I was opposed by most of you regulars. Must we therefore conclude that we truely are a AGW-denying blog?

Do human activities have an effect on the atmosphere? Yes, a miniscule effect*
Do non-human species (inc plants etc) have an effect on the atmosphere? Yes, a large effect
Do natural events (eg earthquakes, volcanoes, meteors, the sun & moon) have an effect on the atmosphere? Yes, a large effect, can be a catastrophic effect

Is Global Warming happening? On the "evidence" presented - No

Does Global Warming matter if it is happening? No, we will adapt

If Global Warming is happening, can we stop it? No

Is CO2 a problem? No, it's a trace gas in atmosphere.

Do I believe in AGW or CAGW? No, I accept the climate changes, and always has.

* in the same way the "catastrophic" Deep Horizon oil leak - amount released into Gulf of Mexico was comparable to 1/5 teaspoon in an Olympic swimming pool.

typo there of course "uncertainty" should be certainty

BTW Lincs Greenest Police Force ever
just posted a video of their loan car which they've painted up as a police car
...It's a V8 Mustang part of their Lincoln Christmas market PR
(Lincolnshire has no motorway and few dual carriageways)

Yes Delingpole basically says
\\ Don't pussyfoot around when you say 'Climate Change is real' you mean that you are 100% certain that catastrophic effects are coming very soon , within the next 50 years'
..and I say tosh, we don't have that level of uncertainty YOUR climate change is not real //

and yes it not up to us to say what we DON'T DENY it's up to the accusers to specify what we DO DENY.
