We didn't need to hear it as we knew it already... but the prize for no deal is that the US gets it's grubby mitts on the NHS.

Confirmed today by the orangutan.

Can wait until the legal US drug dealing conglomerates get in the door here.

Divide and conquer.

The first decent thing Teresa May has done in a long time was get him to confirm that!!!

Totally f**ks the Brexiteers up there is no way that the country wants to lose the NHS not a f**king chance and now Remain have something concrete to use for the next election/confirmatory vote etc.

Video of Farage talking about moving to an insurance type system as well this should be gold to remain politicians and they need to drive it home!!

I thought the same myself. I can't help wonder how history will remember Theresa. Yes, she was a clueless PM. Can't help now reflect back thinking she tried her best (not good enough) to avoid a hard Brexit or no deal Brexit. Now that she has been defeat, fire that in now to show that the big casualty for Britain will be -  the NHS.

Her calling of the General Election was the biggest mistake she made and set the scene for the shambles that followed!!

She did that herself thinking she was bulletproof!

She called the GE because the ERG told her to.

Dye on the money is the way forward.
There was an expert on the radio at lunchtime today and he implied there might be dye on the money and some of the robbers would get nothing. They should announce that there was invisible dye on the money and put the frightners on the robbers and dissuade copy cat robberies.
There’s a guy on Twitter, self described security consultant & surveillance/intelligence specialist. Seems to suggest the ones behind it are three gangs all based along the border. Curious to know how dye would work on new plastic notes?

I hadn't thought about the plastic notes. I'm sure something will stick to them and stop money "laundering".

You could use some sort of acid I suppose that'd destroy the notes., not sure if you'd still want to do the bit where you spray the robber with it too lol

So Police Academy 6

DUP just want a border, not money.

The good thing about the indicative votes is that it lays bare every single MP's intentions.

They voted down every form of soft Brexit or remain type deal last night so it would be hard not to think that they are simply intent on driving the greatest possible wedge as they see it between Ireland north and south despite Nigel Dodds statement last Friday.

Sammy says customs union and single market involvement still would lead to a hardening of the border?

Anyone any idea if I can buy a car in NI and just drive away at it in GB?
Does anyone understand the outworkings of what they have announced this morning?

What was announced this morning trailer?

No deal brexit = no tariffs on imports in NI from ROI. But tariffs are applied into rest of GB. For example cars are subject to just over 10%.

Just another part of the clusterfuck then

Ireland would become a smugglers haven, they really haven't thought this out at all. EU knows that a no deal won't happen and they haven't blinked, surely not even the imbeciles in Westminster would face the wrath of a raging public and allow a no deal. There would be civil unrest everywhere.

If the EU were to allow tariff free trade from north to south, surely these goods would have to be of EU standard?

If the EU was to change the standard then the north have to ensure their goods to the south would be to the new EU standard also? Almost like not leaving then.

DUP say they can't support it. Also heard the 1922 committee are saying there needs to be an immediate General election if May doesn't succeed in getting her deal through tonight (which she won't).

Who are the 1922 committee? General election...the soaps haven't a patch on this.

Heard the 1922 committee are basically the Free Masons. Set up by Churchill himself.

They own the big house that's in Eyes Wide Shut.

I find seafoids relentless copy and paste irritating. And must admit to finding it pretty ironic that a poster is praised for spamming the board in such an unoriginal way while offering precious little insight from his own opinion which usually  consists of " brexit is insane " or some other variation, which only the most deluded or secluded dont concur with anyway.

I agree. It ruins thread and kills debate. I don't read any of it.

No articles over 500 words unless he provides crib notes to show he has read and understood it?
I'll just put  the stuff in another thread going forward so you can do your Brexit analysis without getting offended.
Keep her lit..

Was wondering what mode of transfers ones here would recommend from CDG to Disneyland- train, pre-arranged transfer or taxi from outside? Also, any particular Dublin airport carpark that is best/cheapest?
It's about 10 years since the last of my 4 visits to EuroDisney, but we always got the Disney Bus. Goes from right outside CDG and stops at all the Disney hotels. I'm sure there must be details on their website.
We got a pre-arranged transfer to Hotel New York, cost over £100 but as we'd two kids it saves a lot of hassle, especially when it came to leaving the hotel. Would plan for the next we go.

But people weren't thick when they voted at the referendum, they knew what they were voting for?

People are thick. They still don't have the slightest clue of the fallout of what they are voting for.

Right now - on 30th March - everything just stops when it gets to a border between UK and EU (and by extension, many other places too).

There are no arrangements, there are no staff to facilitate any arrangements, any staff that are recruited between now and then to man the border posts won't have a clue about the arrangements because they won't begin to be decided on till 11:59 the previous night.

Are there tariffs? Are they paid at the border or can they be paid via invoice? How much are the tariffs? Can people accompany the goods?

Exactly, have to laugh at the "we'll just work under WTO rules won't We" not a notion as to how much has to be imported for manufacturing to produce something to sell. Tariffs to be added twice on some parts, as sub assembly and a finished product.
