Hearing a lot of people saying (on a local freecycling group) that they can’t get furniture from IKEA for months. Hub is in UK and nothing there.
Big scramble for old cots at the moment.

Odd stuff missing in the shops, food that is as it’s all we are allowed buy.

So annoyed they didn’t seek clarity on issues years ago rather than pissing about and playing to their own press in order to jockey for power in their own party.

On the plus side you can’t buy shit on Amazon.co.ck apparently.

been wondering if the reason johnson was so willing to go into lockdown was that it would slow the economy and movement of goods enough to try to get over the brexit hump. kicking the border issues down the road a bit

Do we have a comment from Sir Keir Starmer yet, telling us how this isn’t that bad and that Labour should agree to it for the sake of national unity in hard times?

And that this isn’t an argument against Brexit because that question has been settled?

When I read this at the time I knew that it was the Tory government dissembling, I just couldn’t prove it with the information available at the time.

Just to break that down. They were offered a deal and rejected it as it was two way and wasn’t “taking back control”. They made a counter offer which would involve them legislating across the EU, possibly with a straight face but most likely with a smirk, which was simply never a possibility. And here we are. Again this is a business that the UK has a trade surplus with the EU. There wouldn’t be popular support for keeping acts out of the EU, but the UK simply never negotiated in good faith at any point.

They are cruel and incompetent (don’t get me wrong, ours are exactly as bad).

I recall an old ROLLING STONE headline about the UK’s Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band disastrously cancelling a North American tour: “Bonzo Dog Runs, Fucks Itself.” IMHO the UK has fucked itself and has nowhere to run. Are Brits even dafter than Yanks?

This is the most ridiculous thing. From their impotent macho rhetoric to believing they would have any clout on making Ireland leave the EU. This reads like parody.

But Andy Wigmore, the communications director for the campaign group, told the Guardian: “We’ll be back up soon – our lawyers will be taking action against those (and they know who they are) who have broken those delicious EU laws they love so much.”

Calling Richmond a “third-rate EU fanatic,” Wigmore added: “if he wants to make those cowardly defamatory allegations outside of parliamentary privilege let’s see how massive Billy big balls Neale is then.

“And any more nonsense from Brussels lovers like him and we may decide to put the full weight of Leave.EU behind the IREXIT campaign.”

10 fascist anti maskers beating up women. It’s scandalous that the Guards haven’t arrested the whole lot of them and put them in the back of one van.

But then you see who the head of the Guards is andz I shit you not, he doesn’t have security clearance in Ireland.
