Looks like Varadkar is open for a deal ( he knows the looming no deal will be catastrophic for Ireland )

If Varadkar is OK with a deal then he has knocked the feet from under Brussels

pettifogging and a poke in the eye for Verhofstadt


@wotsup 

From that BBC article;

 

"Mr Varadkar said Thursday's "positive" meeting was "sufficient to allow negotiations to resume in Brussels" "

 

"He said he was now "convinced" the UK wants an agreement, saying: "I do see a pathway towards an agreement in the coming weeks." "

 

"etc."

 

Or is he just playing the 'Don't blame me game'?  :rolleyes:

And we all know that the majority of MPs in parliament today were voted in on a mandate of 'Leave the EU'.  :huh:


 

Want to show us all the local MP election pamphlets that say that?

There are some which state a party line - but a majority of the actual MP's?

Well obviously they would have broadly toe'd the party line otherwise they wouldn't be standing for a particular party would they?  :rolleyes:   Independent anyone?

 

 

and Some parties may have said its party policy, but we know that means squat to some politicians like Johnson, David Davis, Dominic Rabb and Ress Mogg for example, who are more than happy to rail and vote against party policy - even when they negotiated it !!!


At least they haven't gone back on their word.

But ... you mean those like Anna Soubry et al that crossed to the other side.

 

 

 



and while we wait for minvanmans to answer the simple question

 


I've only seen one minivanman here, how many have you seen?

 

Whats up - its quite straight forward. Too scared to answer?

 


You should know the answer to that, after all you're the chicken expert.

Varadkar is representing Brussels* as you well know, but if it leads to something positive then thumbs up all round. As long as UK trade isn't reduced to zero.


note* You mean Varadkar is Brussels useful fool, they have used him and the Irish border as a useful roadblock since art 50 was triggered, so either he has seen the light at last or Brussels using him again to make it look as though they are not backing down but Varadkar is accepting that it is workable after all...

No I don't mean that. I meant exactly what I said. I don't need the likes of you to tell me what I I am thinking. But thank you for trying to force your misguided opinion on me.

Re: Brexit Revisited

Saw this by a Remainer group today: "... before a scorched-earth Brexit is imposed on us all."  What do they mean?  Will the EU come and burn the entire country, or is it just a question of finding increasingly negative, and even horrendous, terms to use whenever they mention Brexit?  And why say, "all"?  Was there ever an option for some of us to leave the EU while others didn't?

Re: Brexit Revisited

The whole Brexit thing is a negative move imposed contrary to the the wishes of 50% of the electorate as indicated several years ago.

Re: Brexit Revisited

Catching up on the Irish deal thing this morning.

Room for optimism, and it must be killing both the BBC and The Guardian newspaper having to report on this with less than there usual sour grapes.

@adrianscotter 

Can't afford one of those :sad:

But... Aldi currently selling my printer model for £25 which by my reckoning is cheaper than buying a pair of ink cartridges. Gave up on filling and even buying 'refills' as hassle for the first and refusing to activate for the second.

50%?  Um, wasn't it 51.9% to leave and 48.1% to remain?  Or, put another way 17,410,742 to leave and 16,141,241 to remain... just saying Smiley

Re: Brexit Revisited

Reading between the lines and with no cause for early celebration, I'm thinking that the DUP are being sidelined here given Varadekar's "no one community" veto comment.

If the U.S. can dump the Kurds, the UK can certainly dump the DUP.
