    They would like all the old USSR territory back.
    It's all about ensuring that the response to an invasion of the Balts is a lame shoulder shrug, or the fact that Jesus Corbyn SuperStar has spent all the money on turnip freedom crisps and inclusivity pop.

    I believe it's a big trade off - either the economics are torpedoed or....the idea of "taking back control" is shown to be a fantasy in the face of global big business and you have to do increasingly desperate deals to keep them onside. 
    The one situation that was never going to happen was the UK dictating to everyone how it's going to be.....and this is the deceit that Boris and Co are guilty of perpetuating.

    Hey me too.
    I have been told I voted Remain because I am not patriotic enough, or that I am frightened of the future.
    Now if I speak up about anything I told I am moaning apparently.
    Which one is it? Need to know for the sake of my sanity and that of the 48%  who voted the I way did,
    I feel most sorry for the 27% who didn't vote at all - they don't even get to be slagged off.

    There are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many ways for the very rich folks to camouflage wealth ..... the news this past week should have shown that, offshore-tastic.
    I watched the whole of the Dyson interview. I greatly admire the bloke and his vaccum cleaners. He said his EU market was showing slow growth when compared to the rest of the world, but I wonder whether that's because he has effectively saturated it.
    He was essentially espousing the 'Blackpool' option for the economy - no corp tax to draw all the businesses in.
    There was a sort of dallying around the subject of workers' rights, he called it being able to 'flex the workforce'. That's grand up to the point you are handed a cheque and a cardboard box to clear your desk after working somewhere for 15 yrs.

    There seems to be a different mindset within the MOD on quality vs cost at the moment. It used to be “how much will it cost to A, B, C.. requirements”. Currently it’s closer to “what can you give us for £xxx million”. 
    A lot of ‘pointless’ expenditure can be cut out without sacrificing necessary quality.

    He'd have said he wants less corporation tax and easier to hire and fire if we'd never even had a referendum.
    We, the people, only ever answered the question asked of us. How that all translates in the next 18 months was always going to be shaped by whomever was in power. Unfortunately (from my point of view) that's the blue team, and not even a very capable one at that.
    Would rather have put up with 5 more years of proper, old school horrible Tory rule than the shower we've got at the moment trying to negotiate a good deal. We (yes voters) all know what a good deal looks like. Access to the single market at the cheapest possible outlay, ability to properly enforce our border rules and guaranteed rights for overseas Brits. All should have been perfectly obtainable before the Tories/May/Boris f**ked it up.

    Vladimir is playing the long game that's for sure.
    It is happy days for him right now - seemingly a chum in the White House, the EU crumbling, the Germans spending the minimum on panzers .... and now - oh happy day - the Tories 'need' to shave off 20 billion of UK Defence spending, and that could mean a massive cut in those tricky rock hard Royal Marines, and the binning of the two UK amphibious warfare ships.
    Now what would really help NATO foil a Russian invasion of the Balts? ......ah
    If there had been massive Russian interfering in the elections would we be allowed to find out? You would really have to sack everyone at GCHQ and the NSA in the States. Would be a kind of inverted Bletchley Park moment. Make Kim Philby look like Andy Pandy.

    1. They can't appear to make it easy for us to leave, and then get a favourable deal, as then there could be a charge for the door.
    2. Ignore anything that comes out of Junker's mouth. He now hates our guts as we have ruined his dream. Likewise Farage and the Kippers. Junker and Farage just say stuff that causes upset for effect and entrenchs the views of the other side and delay a deal.
    3. The EU seems to be obsessed with money as I believe they are highly suspicious that we will try and pull a stroke and not pay up. This could be a result of our very weak political landscape right now - Rubbish May and Jesus Corbyn SuperStar - there could be a snap general election and the new regime would refuse to pay up. This could well be the case if Jezza wins and wants to spend all the money on unicorns, reopening all the tin mines and Buying the Whole World a Coke.
    4. Regardless of how you voted, the whole thing has now morphed so much I am not sure anyone truly has a clue what is going on. The highlighted/hyped information available all along has been misleading -  £350 million NHS bus is a good example of this. The goal posts are always moving - May is obliged to let anyone stay here who wants to as we have around 750,000 grannies in Spain.
    5. A lot of people I speak to think it has all happened already - we have left and 'Everything is Awesome'. Nothing has actually happened yet.
    6. May appointed Davies, Fox and Johnson to put them in firing line if it goes tets up. This would stop them plotting on the back benches. I reckon her grand strategy was to crush Jesus Corbyn SuperStar at the GE and then have a load of new baby Tory MPs who would look only to her. She would then push through a softer BREXIT. This has back fired completely and she is stuck with poor negotiators and with no real majority/political strength has to pander to the back bench rolly-eyed crazies.
    If Corbyn was in charge it would be worse. Barnier and the EU team would probably have to listen to a Billy Bragg album before talks started each time and the UK negotiator would be ill on the day, forget to turn up, be constantly annoying the Belgian lady by always asking for a pen.
    The sensible approach would be a  cross-party team and something like - Ken Clark (well known as EU fan, would charm them and has deep background EEC.EU knowledge), Keir Starmer (lawyer, impressive) and Mogg (very brainy and what they would be expecting). The team could be more Remainer as we have decided to leave and we want a good atmosphere to strike a good deal.
    It will all come down to someone writing a number on a piece of paper and sliding it over the table to the EU people - how much to stay in the tariff free area?

    That's the way I saw it. We didn't press, so they had lots of time on the ball, but to be fair they didn't look like scoring in the second half. Reminded me of the game in Germany where we were lauded after losing!
    Couldn't understand some of the selections; Abraham, young I know, didn't look the part, Livermore was meh. Having said that I'm not sure of the names of all the players that suddenly picked up mysterious injuries.
