  1. Fools, Rules and Brexitation.

    So the 'deep state' would be those trying to take over our lives for their own ends? Or does it mean something else?
  2. Fools, Rules and Brexitation.

    Latest polls would suggest not. Over 100,000 of us in London saying we want a vote on the outcome of negotiations today. Streets are gridlocked.
  3. Fools, Rules and Brexitation.

    Under whose thumb? Don't say the EU as that will just show how little you know about it.
  4. Fools, Rules and Brexitation.

    From the Daily Telegraph: Boris Johnson was embroiled in a diplomatic row with Brussels on Friday night after he was accused of using a four-letter word to dismiss an ambassador’s question about the post-Brexit needs of British business. EU diplomats have claimed that during a Foreign Office reception to celebrate the Queen’s birthday last week, the Foreign Secretary was asked about the fears of some business leaders over Brexit and replied: “f*** business.”
  5. Fools, Rules and Brexitation.

    Any form of leadership would be a bonus. Still off to London for protest march today.
  6. Fools, Rules and Brexitation.

    Chief executive of Unipart, automotive group which employs 6000 people: “If we barrel headlong towards a hard Brexit....I believe the British motor industry will find it very difficult to survive in the long term."
  7. Fools, Rules and Brexitation.

    The government have only now (2 years after referendum !) acknowledged that Brexit poses particular problems for aviation and have just advertised for a head aviation negotiator. The interesting point is that they apparently need no aviation sector experience. You couldn’t make it up!
  8. Fools, Rules and Brexitation.

    The car giant BMW has followed plane maker Airbus in warning of the adverse consequences of Brexit. BMW UK boss Ian Robertson told the BBC it needed clarity by the end of the summer. It makes the Mini and Rolls Royce in the UK along with engines for BMW.
  9. Fools, Rules and Brexitation.

    Front page of today's Times “Airbus prepares to take flight” and pull investments from the UK in the event of a hard Brexit. This is a company with the well paid skilled jobs we need - 14,000 direct & 110,000 jobs in the supply chain. Seriously alarming but not unexpected news, who will be next?
