    He wants to have unfettered access to his Greek holiday home. He voted Remain (or came out in support of Remain at least), so it's not hypocritical.

    Nigel Farage applying for a German passport on the other hand.....

    Are we still pretending the UK is relevant?

    If by NHS you mean contracts to chums of Boris and the current govt to supply the NHS, yes, and then some.

    Yep, it is starting to look like a sellout deal.

    I like fish. And shellfish. I'm fairly sure Canada is a net exporter of seafood. I also like fishnets.

    The Brexit deal agreed looks a bit of a bust - still better than nothing but not exactly somethign to cheer about. The UK is a net exporter of services, and a net importer of goods. This Brexit deal is reasonable for goods as it is tariff free, albeit contrary to Boris Johnson's claims, not free of non-tariff barriers (either he doesn't understand what that means, doesn't understand his deal or just doesn't care enough to check his claims). It does next to nothing for services - qualifications are not recognised, employees can't work across borders, there is no financial passporting.

    Net result, the EU gets more out of this deal than the UK. All because Boris was pointlessly focussed on fish rather than the financial and insurance markets.

    Odds are 50% that there will be another referendum. It's a coin toss at this point.

    It seems to be all over the place depending g upon wording. Some somehow 58% against, some show 52% for, but it doesn't matter because no vote will be allowed any time soon and after things settle in after Brexit the anxiety will decrease.

    1) Nope. About 60% support union and it is going to go up from there. Not that Scotland could economically survive without the rest of the UK.

    2) The ones who live there filed for residency over the last four years..

    3) Mobile went kind of crazy with TDS. I hardly see him even on Facebook these days.
