Blimey @nozzer  I nearly took you to mean the old biblical cure all, hyssop, and you were going to suggest that could be the NHS's choice substitute for short drugs.:2funny:

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

"Due to its properties as an antiseptic, cough reliever, and expectorant, it is commonly used as a medicinal plant."

Actually it probably would be quite effective come to think of it, especially the expectorant bit, although how you relieve a cough and make it act as an expectorant I'm not quite sure. Hock-ta! As Spit the Dog used to say. :azn:

Re: Brexit Revisited

On the national tv news tonight, all focus was on Scottish case and nothing about Northern Ireland court verdict finding it was legal or high court finding on appeal that it was legal -  typical of remain biased UK media,  one reporter asked Boris Johnson on national tv if he had lied to the Queen, that is slander and she deserved to get sued...

 

Remainer MPs clamouring to get parliament reopened on back of Scottish verdict, although the Scottish legal system does not have much weight in rest of UK.  Northern Irish court found that prorougation was legal and did not affect good friday agreement.  We have to wait for supreme court judgement next Tuesday,  though Gina Miller et al have been knocked back twice by English courts as well as NI.

Just finished watching the BBC news, and sweet Fanny Adams about that Irish verdict.

Surprised?

She asked the question and did not make an allegation - that is not slander.

Well no, but not far from "when did you last beat your wife", otherwise know as an unjustified assumption.

Re: Brexit Revisited

@Minivanman 

The NI case was rejected because the judge ruled that the arguments used were "overwhelmingly political in nature based around the fact a no-deal would have a negative effect on the peace process and endanger the Good Friday Agreement" and best left to politicians, not the courts.

In other words, the arguments used were not within the courts jurisdiction, and the judge at High Court level felt unable to make a decision, which is exactly what happened at the High Court in Scotland when it was rejected. When it was referred to Scotland's highest court it was found in favour. This is a quirk of the way courts work. The Supreme court referral for next week is because it is able to examine what the law should be, even if it currently isn't, so that in future any eventuality is catered for. If the NI case is referred to the Supreme court that court will be able to take into account the GFA being affected (or not as the judge decides).

Re: Brexit Revisited

I understand the whipless 21, (formerly known as Tories) have been invited to appeal, although I'm not sure who they are appealing to?

Re: Brexit Revisited

If supermarkets experience a dip in trading after Brexit (should it ever happen), the Remainers will see it as a downturn in the economy caused by our leaving the EU when, in fact, it will be caused by people's stockpiling of food pre-Brexit caused by the scaremongering by the Remainers.
