Had to chase your link as it led to Brangelina but, wow!

That schoolboy is a credit to his family, faith and friends. He just stood there and only looked away to urge his colleagues not to engage when they are told to "Go back to Europe".

That he has not been supported by the school is its shame.
And that the media libelled him is disgraceful. Hopefully expensively so.

Sorry about wrong link

Correct is - ie minus the /br/

Which links to from ~1h20m ?

"A Franco-German axis with no UK can over-rule all the rest. With the UK in the EU we could make an alliance that gives them pause.

If you switch Russia for Germany, that reads like the balance of power as seen by the Royal Navy in Victorian times. Germany appeared on the scene in the 1860s, but posed no threat until the Kaiser, and subsequently the Dreadnought "Arms Race" that started in 1906.

iirc Rotterdam effect adds ~5% to UK-EU export. This suggest UK-EU export is ~39% not 44% [and falling]

Golf Charlie,
There are three great powers in Europe; Germany, France and the UK.

There are several secondary powers; Italy, Spain, The Netherlands and maybe Austria, Portugal and Belgium.
Countries like Sweden, Czechia and Poland cannot be ignored but they are to Germany as Germany is to the USA.

And there are the rest, bless.

A Franco-German axis with no UK can over-rule all the rest. With the UK in the EU we could make an alliance that gives them pause.
If we are lucky.

Luigi di Maio - See also Maio Carps

"Luigi Di Maio, accused Paris of creating poverty in Africa and generating mass migration to Europe.

It would be unfair to hold Macron responsible for historic issues, but his enthusiasm for returning France to a bygone age, is not shared by the French.

Does anyone know whether migrants are still fleeing France across the English Channel, as the BBC has stopped covering the story?

“A Franco-German axis that goes around other Member States to stitch up EU business is exactly what we feared when the U.K. announced their intention to leave," 
Jan 22, 2019 at 7:24 PM | Mark Hodgson

I am surprised by that. It implies that Britain's absence will make a difference.

"Faulty solar panels: Queensland recall over part linked to 40 fires"
Jan 22, 2019 at 7:13 PM | Mark Hodgson

Fire Fighters do not find it easy to isolate solar panels if they have caused an electrical fire, and they may still be generating electricity.

Dyson - $1.1bn on £4.4bn turnover?- that's quite good going - no wonder he can afford to buy up half of Gloucestershire.

I have tried his products and while they work - they don't work well enough in my experience to justify the premium pricing. I'm not sure what attracts the buyers at the insane price points - novelty?

The car is going to be fun.

Less fun is the NHS catastrophe in the wake of the Carillion collapse - outrage on a stick - but hey it's other people's money....
