Yep... and Brexit is still an unmitigated disaster.


Life goes on but in general there is an expectation that things improve. That politicians strive to make things better fof the people they represent  even if they dont always succeed. Brexit is going to make things worse for the vast majority and yet our leaders feel compelled to head the country in that direction. 
You can check out any time you like but you can never leave!

Latest Brexit news.


Sections of the M26 in Kent to be turned into a car park.


Industry bodies reveal that they have been gagged (made to sign non-disclosure agreements) preventing them from expressing the impact to be caused by brexit.


Full steam ahead for this major act of self-harm.

Are you paid by Project Fear döm?

Stop conflating contingency planning with facts.

The M26 is only a Pathetic Motorway anyhow :)

ah, Equinox, the good old days when  C4 had a worthwhile science programme and when Horizon was still dealing in real science instead of "Human Interest" stories.

Brexit or no Brexit, this country is hurtling to hell in a handcart come what may. :(

Barrel making and onion strings for you Nick, you may need the skills,post Brexit. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=UNwPvx7cVVo
Everybody's got to evalate from the norm.

The Letter R

https://www.kentlive.news/news/kent-news/highways-england-actually-closing-m26-2099044

Well the M26 was closed last night and will be again in November and December to allow Highways England to install gates in the central reservations - presumably so they can turn traffic around or off into truck holding areas. It does seem the lead up to the closures has been a bit cloak and dagger with the real reason only being admitted days before it happened - if there is nothing to worry about why keep it quiet?
Contingency plans or not it shows the concern we should all have of the potential problems a "Hard Brexit" may bring if trucks have to queue for days to cross the channel.

It seems half the Country are being accused of Project Fear while the other stick their heads in the sand and dream of La La Land - if ever there was a time to all pull together then it is now.........

Tweet from Andrea Jenkins...it's come to this "better to go down fighting" .. Who voted to do that?, we were holding all the cards, the EU needed us more than we needed them, we were going to have so many benefits..  now it's some WW2 rhetoric... unless someone lied to us?

Andrea Jenkyns MP #StandUp4Brexit
@andreajenkyns
It is better to go down fighting and honouring the democratic decision of our British people. Then to be long remembered for waving a white flag and surrendering to EU demands. All Brexiteers in Gov and on the backbenches its time to #StandUp4Brexit and finally #ChuckChequers.

Yes Nick brexit can not fulfilled in the form put forward at the referendum. In no way shape or form.

Stay in the Single market
Leave the single Market
Norway option, Canadian option, £350 million to the NHS
Have cake and eat it
We have all the cards.

Then there are all the broken rules and the Russian involvement.

The referendum result was
48% stay in the EU
10% Norway option
10% Hard Brexit
10% Stay in single market
10% Canadian option
10% WTO
2% Who knows.

I do know though.

Some sort of deal. Obey EU regulations and have no say in their rules, Join WTO and have no say in their rules.
No deal.  Obey EU regulations and have no say in their rules, Join WTO and have no say in their rules.

You misunderstand Andrea's point, Nick - possibly deliberately, or perhaps you've been taken in again by some remoaner social media lie doing the rounds. We will go down, or more hopefully stay on our feet, fighting the snivelling mongrels who want to betray their - and our - country. She is referring to the potential damage to her party's electoral chances liable to result from a split, not the fortunes of our country once we leave on our own terms.
I'm sure she has no doubt that Brexit will be for the long-term benefit of our country. And she's not wrong.
