    Any details on the punitive car export tariffs? Apologies if already addressed.

    It's been 15 hours 34 minutes and 78 seconds since OUR FREEDOM has been WON from THEM and our sunlit uplands are at present shrouded by cloud and flecked by the remnants of yesterday's ice/snow,

    And still THEY refuse to deliver pizza to MY house despite MY desire to prosper mightily as an

    independent

    and

    sovereign

    individual

    with the power to decide one's destiny blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.

    I have the feeling that, to get the best out of Brexit, I should keep up this precise level of pissed.

    Fireworks telling you how you're supposed to feel. Only a slightly bit big brother.

    So we're 46 minutes and 83 seconds into OUR FREEDOM and THEY still won't deliver pizzas to MY house, and it seems the supermarkets won't open until tomorrow morning.

    How long before we start to hear the stories of buyers regret?

    There are going to be many tales of people finding out that Brexit is going to affect their lives in ways they never thought.

    Perhaps it's best that Covid is here this year. New Years Eve is punchy enough in normal times without adding Brexit to it.

    Are we having a community countdown in the run up to 11:00?

    Yes, the Australian Labor Party is doing the exact same thing. Pisses off long-term supporters, driving them to minor parties or independents and does nothing in terms of picking up voters who have voted for the Liberals or Nationals (conservatives) in the past. Madness

    I've liked both those posts, despite not really liking either of them.

    Pretty sure all of those people have done the eminently sensible thing and taken German citizenship.

    EDIT: <ahem> I didn't read the list properly. So, yeah. Stumpy, treibeis and Alderman Barnes have all done the sensible thing.

    Clever summary on Radio 5 just now: "it's taken us four and a half years to get a last minute deal".

    So because of Brexit, Gibraltar will be a British Overseas Territory where it’s easier to enter if you’re Spanish (or German/Dutch/French/etc) than British.

    Actually the Guardian is just now reporting that the draft deal has just been finalised. It means Gibraltar can join Schengen (if they choose to I guess and they presumably will)
