    John Redwood advises investors to back, sorry, back out of the UK. If I was feeling forgotten, I'd be hugely reassured to know that people like him and Dyson have got my back.

      I’m in severe danger of expiring from apoplexy every story I read on this self inflicted shitnova. Shouldn't the slithery bastard be accused of Treachery by the Mail tomorrow?

        Don't hold your breath on that one...

          The welfare state, how quaint… what’s that again?

          Hansard, the daily record of parliamentary debates, records that in the 1980s and 1990s, the phrase “the welfare state” was used on average around 170 times a year. By the mid-2000s, that had fallen to around 50. In the 1980s and 1990s, “social security” had around 2,000 mentions a year. By the mid-2000s, that was down to 370.

            Where there's muck there's brass... Tomas Brolin doesn’t seem to have done too badly either with his Twinnovation AB, a "revolutionary" vacuum cleaner nozzle according to this.

              Tory wonk types would get rid of farm subsidies tomorrow, I expect. They don't need votes in rural areas at all, so they might cut more deeply than expected. Maybe they'll try and redirect to Pillar 2 type rural development.

                What’s pillar 2 classification?

                Comment


                  Under the CAP.

                  The six priorities for the new rural development policy for 2014-2020 are as follows:
                  to promote knowledge transfer and innovation in agriculture and forestry (developing the knowledge base in rural areas; fostering links between agriculture, forestry and research);
                  to increase the viability and competitiveness of all types of agriculture, promote innovative agricultural technologies and support sustainable forest management;
                  to promote the organisation of the food production chain, animal welfare and risk management in farming;
                  to restore, preserve and enhance agricultural and forest ecosystems (biodiversity, water and soil);
                  to promote the efficient use of resources (water and energy) and support the transition to a low-carbon economy (renewable energy use, greenhouse gas emission reduction, carbon sequestration and storage);
                  to promote social inclusion, poverty reduction and economic development (facilitating job creation, promoting local development and improving access to information and communication technologies).

                    Big: David Davis announces Government has conceded to Withdrawal Bill amendments enshrining Exit Deal as statute - ie both Houses/ amendable

                    Comment


                      I mean, it's a minor victory for the rule of law, I guess, but it's completely meaningless as far as the exit deal itself goes.

                        At this rate it might be a confidence vote, after the clock's run out.

                            The amount of wilful blindness surrounding the Brexit process is truly astonishing.

                              David Goodhart on the tweets today can’t see why the bloody Irish are making such a fuss over the border. There are technical solutions! That don’t exist yet, and have to be invented within a year. No need for physical trick checking!

                              He is a horrible horrible cunt. Him and Rob Ford should take a long hard look at themselves and what they are aligning with. Sensible Xenophobia isn’t a good look, somewhere anywhere fannies.

                                Lots of them are likely gasping at the cunningness of the plan. Unfortunately, it's less like a fox who's just been appointed Professor of Cunning at Oxford University, and more like Dr Fox, Secretary of State for International Trade.

                                  And it's not like HMRC has a history of fucking up IT projects or anything.

                                        When people like me argued that an over-supply of labour, caused through EU free movement laws, depressed wages, Left-wing colleagues accused us of 'blaming migrants'.

                                        We weren't. We were stating an obvious economic fact.

                                        We are being proved right.

                                            Hannan, no doubt. Almost definitely a Brit anyway. Not a silly Paddy or Euroweenie.

Fucking Trots, dunno if I hate the one that stayed left and rapey more than the ones that went right and became rape apologists in general.
