Quote from: döm on August 18, 2019, 15:34:14 pmIt has to be constructed. WTO rules stipulate that they have to be on place for countries that have different trading arrangements.
Actually I am not sure that is true - sources I have found seem to suggest it is not a WTO issue unless another member complains then they can only recommend - I don't think the WTO actually has the power to enforce anything

Quote from: rufus the dawg on August 19, 2019, 10:24:54 amNick it's just scaremongering made up by the left because it's the left's fault. They are everywhere and I blame the left for everything.

Those lefties wearing socks with open toed sandals and woven ties are everywhere. They have infiltrated the system. They have even called the report after a bird, bloody lefty twitchers. I might have to eat lentils next.

I was on social media the other day and what the left were putting up is tearing this country apart. How dare they not agree with my view. Because all my slogans are right. I know they are right because I am right and the right is always right. It's in the words right is right.

You are either with me or against me. Right is right, all those nasty remainers wanting to question my slogans; how dare they because I can not back them up with evidence.

I know i am right because right is right. And I am always right.
You talk shit.

The left don't wear ties.

I intend to get this for 'er indoors for Christmas on Bluray, so I had no problems in bagging it temporarily from another source so that we could watch it again for her birthday.

If anything, it was better on a repeat viewing. It has made me want to check out Dexter Fletcher's earlier output - namely "Eddie The Eagle" and "Sunshine on Leith". I suspect that Mr. Fletcher will be very much in demand after his work on Bohemian Rhapsody, and the fantastic Rocketman.

Musically, I prefer Bohemian Rhapsody, but overall, Rocketman is a better film. There, I've said it. 

I just wish that they had shown it in the Imax. Ho hum.

Here is a somewhat gushing review from Mark Kermode:

I'm holding off for the time being to see if the price drops after publication ;D

Just back from a week on Rab Island.

Lovely countryside, no litter or graffiti, friendly people, good beer and food.

We'll definitely be going back to Croatia :)
