It pickle. A Brexit which damages the UK is a damaging one for the EU too. At the last minute a marvellous solution will appear which lets everyone save face and lets the EU press on more rapidly with  its ever closer union plans without us holding them back. Remember Article 8.
I think you're pretty close there, although my money is now on a deal being struck at the 13th hour

Beautiful day for cycling, but I did a fair bit of walking up hills in the Lake District yesterday so I'm giving it a miss today. Right knee feeling sore but I don't think it's a setback. Hoping if anything that the exercise will have helped a bit.

Slim have you had your knees X-rayed or whatever else they can do these days? How do you know that it’s not cartilage damage or similar?

I don't actually know, and certainly I've had the same thought myself. I wonder if something is ruptured or torn. And with that same thought last week, I made an appointment to see a GP this Thursday coming. As it happens it looks like I'm not seeing a GP per se but  a "physician assistant" but in any case I will stress the time it's taking to heal and ask for an MRI or ultrasound (X-Rays are useful for bone fractures but they don't show softer tissue damage very well).

U2 at Manc Arena tonight.  Just magnificent as ever.

Was on the floor and for the last third of the show Hass (captainkurtz) and I managed to get about three rows from the main stage in front of The Edge - an easy underarm stone’s throw away; we could hear Larry Mullen’s cymbals acoustically.  Just fantastic to see them up so close and to witness how much graft they’re actually putting into it. And the little nods and smiles to the first few rows.  They truly are a class act.  8)

I think we are beyond speculation now, it is quite apparent its going to be very damaging for the UK.

An excellent turnout yesterday afternoon / evening (me, Keith, Neilllllll, Puds & Lou, Oz, Lucy, Felix & Nicola).

Great fun and the usual amount of bollocks talked.

Plenty of alcohol consumed  ;D
