    We need Eggy for the rule in England and Wales

    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).

    He already packed his Land Rover Defender nostalgia wankfest factory off to France.

    "Petrochemicals magnate" is a really weird way to spell "arsehole".

    I've got a couple of aunts I could do without. If everyone chips in with a couple, 2024 should be in the bag

    There will be nobody to pick the seasonal veg.

    Zero sympathy.
    This exactly.

    Anyone believing that lot shouldn't be running a bath, never mind a company.

    He won't, he'll blame the EU for not giving us a good deal by negotiating in bad faith.

    This is slightly fair. Before the referendum we were often given Norway and Switzerland as examples of how countries could thrive outside the EU. Some of us could easily see that this would not have fixed the problems that most Brexiters had with foreign scum telling us how to live and coming here and taking our jobs and we can't even speak English on the High Street any more. But quite a lot of disingenuous arsehole Brexit propagandists may have used them as examples, and people less engaged might not have noticed.
