    They knew what they voted for, every bit of needless tariff, regulation, hassle caused by this shit show will be accepted as a must to achieve 'sovereignity' and foreigners blamed for it...except when the USA impose on us whatever they wish, in that case it will be necessary compromise

    I've no idea how much BMWs cost. I see around 170k are sold in the UK each year. That's more than I'd have guessed. Still, I don't think a 10% price rise will affect that many people. Chocolate, now, that's a different kettle of ball games.

    Someone in No 10 has evidently been reading Schrodinger lately:

    And they're trying to avoid using the words "No Deal" by replacing them with "Australia's terms". I bet someone at No 10 almost wanked themselves into unconsciousness when they came up with that one.

    The European Council conclusions are as constant as John Le Carre's titular gardener:

    a voicferous campaign for victims of grooming gangs is easily misread

    I bet that wording wasn't agreed, and If i were ms Shah's lawyer I would demand a further apology

    The Secret Barrister and David Allen Green have gone full bore at Braverman and Buckland, for all the good it will do.

    Have we done this one as part of that?

    "EC President to issue legal action against UK for breaching obligations under the withdrawal agreement"

    So. "WTO minus" looms then.

    It wouldn't be a clear enough case for the New York Bar (as illustrated by the fact that Rudy Giuliani is still a member in good standing).
    In theory, barristers are supposed to support the rule of law and the integrity of the Courts, and not advise their clients to embark on a criminal basis.

    In practice, I doubt the Bar Council has the guts to act as the attack on the rule of law is bad enough without loading the gun further....


    I see the car industry is fucked as car parts from Japan and Turkey, which get imported and built in "British made cars", aren't going to be counted as British, so exporting said cars may be at a higher tariff. This also potentially fucks EVs as batteries are not included either, and the UK makes Nissan Leafs and MINI EVs.
