Discussing my views of the world, and the UK in particular. Often political, my channel name is a frank admission that I have biases, as everyone does, and my own will inevitably inform my opinions. I'm not a mountain, though, and I'm always happy to hear other points of view.

  • Tell me why French businesses are stating the same there food and drinks have been damaged aswell Not only that we buy more food from them On top of that we can buy buy alternative food and drinks

  • Next up: Man who sets fire to neighbours house gets upset when they won't buy a fire alarm off him.

  • Even if it could be abolished legally it could very well kick off Civil war again. If it does then the English Government should be declared rogue and fully sanctioned by the rest of the world.

  • Iam sick of you lot stating trade with the EU We dont do trade with the EU we do trade with 27 countries You stated the EU have lost 20% of trade Explain how GERMANY HAS LOST 30% TRADE WITH THE UK not only that LIZ TRUST has got us over £800 billion Pounds of extra trade which will increase jobs and our GDP Also France are doing a PETITION FOR a Referendum to leave the EU And thats has to do with Brexit

  • A few slides would help, Phil...

  • It was Johnson’s WA all the Torys voted for it. No simple answers. Flag shagging, spitfires and the royal family won’t fix this. They knew the consequences of putting a border down the Irish Sea. Do they want to break EU and WTO rules ?

  • The DUP are money sluts just offer them something and they'll accept it , simple .

  • It may be a non-issue now, but could be used to defuse the situation. Every time DUP points out how harmful the protocol is, just say there is a legal way to abolish it.

  • It's an absolute fucking shambles.

  • 'Pragmatic ' ? This lot ? Unlikely ? This Tory Brexit Empire government will double down on all things Brexit! They know to slip or concede, will be the start of the climb down and the back track will begin. They will lose the hard right news press ,and in turn lose the Brexit train full of useful idiots? No, more likely to keep on the hard right Brexit path and keep the fever pitch up . The more bridges they can burn the more Unlikely Brexit will be reversed. They are not intrested in Pragmatic. They are intrested in their Brexit Empire project legacy.

  • Hi Phil. Could you cover the Daily Express comment on bi valve mollusc changes and that the EU have backed down.

    • Monday 19 April 2021 Brexit: no better off? "Since the first publication of the surrender story, the Times has joined in with its own version, headlined: "Easier rules are help to few British fishermen banned by EU". From this we learn that the easement applies only to 11 out of 266 sea areas, including the Thames estuary, Fleet in Dorset and St Austell Bay in Cornwall. Thus, only a minority of British shellfish exporters will benefit from the reclassification". And do read their full post. www.eureferendum.com/blogview.aspx?blogno=87947

  • What if the EU27 refuse to ratify the deal Phil?

    • @Chips1889 Lol, thinking both the WA and TCA are linked. Forgot your meds today mate? As for those border posts, go right ahead and don't. The smugglers would love the UK "controlling its borders", by throwing them wide open. Daily busses from Calais to Belfast, no passport, no ID, no nothing needed.

    • @Ken Jepson It would leave us where we are now. No trusted traders system stops it working.

    • @Skindred4life But you do know they are linked and the only thing the UK need do is never to build border posts. That would be down to the EU27 and Eire but they wouldn't either.

    • I get the feeling that it would be more of a problem for this UK "government" if the EU ratified the deal.

    • Chipsy surely you do know that the WA and the TCA are 2 completely separate documents? The WA which contains the NI protocol is already ratified by the EU and the UK. The new TCA trade deal is however only ratified by the UK. Your beloved "no deal" is still on the table, funny how its the EU deciding on it while the UK has no power whatsoever. So much for that control.

  • Great link, thank you!

  • There was a GE in 2019 and the people backed the Brexit stancde of the Tory party mate.

    • @atomic critter But they did in our system mate. We vote for one person in each constituancy. The most MPs give you the result, Easy if you think about it.

    • except they didnt - Less than half the votes for the Tories remember

  • Thank You Phil! To the point .... again ...

  • Komsomolskaya Pravda It turns out that Vladimir speaks quite good English. He showed me a small pistol, then Putin looked strait at me and said in his strong Russian accent, "When I showed this to Johnson and the other Gopniks at the party, they realised for the first time I was serious". "I'm sure Johnson flew back from Italy with the vision of my Makarov in his mind, because, when asked by the press, he denied even being there" the, same day he personally accepted the money and the rest is, as you say in England, history"

  • I still don't get it why the uk doesn't "just" kick NI out of the uk...

  • The Irish question has come back to haunt successive British governments for as long as we’ve been involved with Ireland. What made the conservatives ever think it wouldn’t? Brexit is having unintended consequences which we are seeing unfolding before our very eyes. The break up of United Kingdom. What a legacy for conservative prime minister to live with? The Scots detest the blond charlatan now the Irish be they from the north or the south! Like watching a slow motion train crash.

The new direct shipping route will help Moroccan products avoid the border friction created by Brexit on goods arriving via Europe by road. This new weekly RoRo route, which will directly link Tangier to Poole in the south of England with no additional stops, and which will be run by United Seaways, should allow Moroccan products to access English territory in less than three days, against more than six days currently by land. This new path should also help to avoid traffic congestion and additional import procedures caused by Brexit. The information was confirmed to British media by United Seaways, the British maritime transport specialist, whose mission is to develop British cross-border trade, by identifying and opening new sea routes between the United Kingdom and destinations deemed strategic. While it will initially focus on providing an alternative route to lorries already travelling to the UK via Europe, United Seaways said it hoped it would encourage British importers to increasingly source from North Africa. United Seaways MD Zeyd Fassi Fehri said the service would create a “sustainable and environmental alternative” when it is launched in the coming months. “The speed and efficiency of the vessel ensures a longer shelf life for fresh products whilst the reduction of road congestion, tolls and additional import procedures that have arisen since Brexit brings wonderful added value.” United Seaways claimed the service would be “competitively priced” against the land route, despite the vessel likely returning empty to Morocco at least at the beginning. Fruit & vegetables make up the majority of Moroccan exports to the UK, though they remain a small fraction of those from the EU. British importers bought £180m of fresh produce from Morocco last year, compared with almost £1.8bn from Spain alone. However, full border checks on EU imports that are set to begin in July threaten to “cause a level of disruption the industry hasn’t seen for generations,” said Fresh Produce Consortium CEO Nigel Jenney. He welcomed the new service, adding: “Any solution that makes imports more effective, or eases trading with alternative countries, may well be a great opportunity for helping the UK source fresh produce from around the world.” It is to be recalled that January 1, 2021 marked the start of a new era in economic relations between Morocco and the UK, which existed on that day the European Union (EU). At the same time, the Association Agreement signed with Morocco in London on October 26, 2019, entered into force. This bilateral agreement restores all the benefits that the two countries accorded to each other under the Morocco-EU Association Agreement. The Moroccan and British governments are expected to hold a high-level meeting in London in the coming weeks to push economic and trade relations even further.

  • 30, 000 people travel from the North every day to work as the wages are higher in the Republic

  • I see that whereas rUK EU trade is suffering from the BoJo BRexit trade reduction deal, NI is not - _because of its open border with the EU (RoI)._ Given also that the Dinosaurs United lot are fairly rapidly heading to irrelevancy status, NI will increasingly be looking to the EU/RoI and acting as an EU broker to the rUK. The EU simply has to stay patient over the next decade and let the shrill rhetoric from the DUP be seen for what it is - the panicked screech of extinction.

  • A different lie everyday Daily uploads of complete bollocks

    • @The legend Of spitfire hunter "The 'shellfish war' between the UK and the EU moved closer to a resolution last night after fishermen around the country were given the green light to export their catches to the continent" - Where's this from? The Daily Express?

    • @The legend Of spitfire hunter So you haven't got better things to do? Seriously ...

    • @channeleightythree083 Always

    • @PF The 'shellfish war' between the UK and the EU moved closer to a resolution last night after fishermen around the country were given the green light to export their catches to the continent. No 10 was left furious earlier this year when the EU suddenly announced a ban on the export of live mussels, oysters, clams and cockles in what was viewed as an act of revenge for Brexit. The European Commission said it would not accept crustaceans fished from Britain's so-called Class-B waters - which account for the vast majority of the produce - on the grounds of 'purity', despite Ministers being able to point to correspondence in which Brussels assured the UK that the exports would be allowed if accompanied by the right health certificate The 'shellfish war' between the UK and the EU moved closer to a resolution last night after fishermen around the country were given the green light to export their catches to the continent. But now, in a review, the independent Food Standards Agency ha.s upgraded the waters off Kent, Essex, Devon, Cornwall and Northumberland to Class A So shellfish caught there can avoid the EU ban without further purification treatment because they are deemed safe enough for direct consumption. A Government source said: 'The ban on the import of shellfish from Class-B waters was without scientific or technical justifie 'They effectively changed the law to justify their position in blocking the trade, despite clear indications that the export from Class-B waters for purification could continue after the transition period. 'This resulted in damage to markets on both sides of the Channel.' Addressing suspicions that Ministers manipulated the system to foil the EU, the source added: 'The independent review was conducted according to long-standing and stringent protocols on health standards. The European Commission said it would not accept crustaceans fished from Britain's so-called Class-B waters. Picture: File image 'The UK is a world leader in environmental and health standards, and we take our responsibilities on food exports extremely seriously. 'More produce from UK waters will now be eligible for export to the EU again, boosting the British fishing industry.' Environment Secretary George Eustice had been so infuriated by the Brussels ban that he considered blocking imports of fashionable mineral waters such as San Pellegrino and Perrier in retaliation by ending Britain's 'rollover recognition' of natural mineral waters. EU Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, Stella Kyriakides - or 'Calamity Kyriakides' as she is dubbed in Whitehall - has refused demands from Mr Eustice to meet to resolve the dispute. One Minister has said privately the rows were due to Brussels 'trying to punish us for daring to become a nation state' Shellfish war between UK and EU nears a resolution as fishermen get green light to export catches

  • If we're a third country, like Thailand, why does my Thai girlfriend need a Schengen visa and I'm allowed to enter for 90 days? Don't get that.

  • Good sound today but you look greenish. I want nothing but the best for you because you do such excellent work here and we are very grateful and mightily impressed.

  • Thanks Phil.

  • You know the World is upside down when the leader of the opposition is berated in a Bath pub by a slightly unhinged landlord for the Tory imposition of questionable health measures to reduce COVID deaths. The NI protocol is just as upside down. I wonder if this is Starmer’s fault too. Or maybe the EU’s fault for having agreed to it. Anybody’s fault for having been complicit in anything to do with anything? It certainly can’t be attributed to the clown who said there would be no border down the Irish Sea and then imposed one. Or any of the clowns at the heart of the destruction of the United Kingdom. We are living through the collapse of a western country into its constituent regions with the tacit approval of its conned people and the assistance of Russian money. Where is the anger? Where are the people on the streets? Where is the opposition? Brexit and it’s stupid, low intellect adherents have done for us. Well done Starmer. Well done British people. Well done Boris. Oh, who will rid me of this troublesome straw-haired clown and all who fawn over him?

    • @English Patriot1980 your use of the word ‘maybe’, twice, suggests your are not sure yourself. Which sensible country, close to the decision-making and law-making processes at the very heart of and on the very doorstep (21 miles) of the biggest trading bloc in the world, chooses to leave and seek legal and economic relationships with another trading bloc (with all their membership rules, laws, and regulations which impose similar constraints on our sovereignty in just the same way as with the EU) ten thousand miles away? Maybe it was an act of self harm never before seen on the face of the earth. No other country in history has done a trade deal with another group of countries which ensures it is worse off. Never. Maybe you’re living in la la land. Well there’s no maybe about it, mate. It is and always will be bonkers.

    • Are you saying everybody else is wrong and you’re right? Perhaps, just maybe, brexit was the right thing to do and there are no marches and anger because everyone is getting to the point where they want to move on? Maybe

  • I love the way there are riots in NI, petrol bombs violence policeman injured. On the BBC news it is hardly mentioned exactly as was the case during the troubles. The average brexiteer doesn’t give a shit about NI.

  • However much Unionists would like to be British, the people on the mainland will always think of them as Irish.

    • @Ben Wilson The Northern Irish are not British they are citizens of the UK not Britain. Scotland will continue to be part of Great Britain even after an Independent Scotland ends the UK. We didnt stop being Europeans when we left the EU.

    • @Ben Wilson Born on the island of Ireland makes you Irish. Born on the island of Britain makes you British. Telling people they are British when they don't want to be is the issue. Britain claiming those people is what's the issue is. They don't belong to Britain. Claiming people whom don't belong to you is called slavery. Now do you understand ?

    • I cannot understand all the angst, in Scotland, we are Scottish, we are also at present British. I am unsure what the problem of being Irish and also British is? Have I missed something? You can be English and British.

    • Yes they are Irish,born in Ireland and giving allegiance to the Queen. Fine - no problem with that. Most Irish people want their country back. There will be a devolved parliament in Belfast but Ireland will be whole and we will all be Irish ,Unionists and any other name you want to call people . My thoughts.

    • And treat them with the same contempt and despise.

  • Johnson the working hero mired in sleaze and lies.

  • If Brexit has taught me anything it's to never underestimate people's capacity for mass stupidity

    • @Marcus Bradley starting to happen - no full Brexit yet. Though TBH Im not bothered about any Leavers claiming that Remainers said it would be apocalyptic - what I am looking for are BENEFITS of Brexit to me personally and our country Britain - not seeing ANY

  • What do the Tories have to do for Starmer to attack them like he does the left? Might as well vote LibDem or SNP or Green

    • @A Different Bias That's a very bleak and depressing situation/viewpoint indeed where Starmer equals "the left" and seems to be your only hope of getting rid of the Tories. I'm glad I've been voting for proportional representation all my live. But I would still like to hear your opinion about, say, the hiring of Assaf Kaplan by the Labour Party or the "Wrong Jews" that were kicked out. The latter, as I understand, was perceived by many as an attack on the left-wing. Old news but I feel like you've been avoiding the subject. Maybe I just missed it.

    • Starmer is the left. In fact, the dumbest policies he has right now are caused in order to prevent damaging infighting. The only attacks I see anywhere within the Labour party are against Starmer. But sure, you vote for whichever party helps the Tories stay in power because that's what those opposed to Starmer seem to want.

  • What a most uncertain future!!

  • In four years time, the supply chains and business focus will be fully EU aligned, leaving only the dogmatic DUP to vote against it.

  • GET OUT OF MY PUB

    • @Karl Zaraiva staged from the off. Lights camera action.

    • You didnt saw the part of why the landlord expelled Stammer. He did so because he's an anti vaxxer covid denialist conspiracy theorist nut who thinks the pandemic is a conspiracy to personally hurt his business. He's a loonie. You identify with the loonies much?

  • If the Trunchbull and her "loyal"ist terrorist gang kick off again over this, we (Nationalist, sane unionist and Northern Irish) will have every justification to revoke the dup's seats in stormont and limit their hate speech to soap boxes, street corners and twitter. The dup aim to divide, knowing the only way forward towards peace is integration and to let the past stay in the past. No more unionists and nationalist going nearly twenty years before encountering one another carrying the grudges of their parents parents. Leave nothing segregated, mix the prod and cath schools from junior infants onward, after a generation without being bombarded by them'uns hate poisoning impressionable young minds people will see each other as people and not the enemy. Unite the north, Unite the Island.

  • 👍👍

  • #BigBrothersCensorship.

  • The REPUBLIC OF Ireland should just invade the North and take it over; Backed by the U.S.A. Problem over, except for any Unionist who don't like the deal. They should then be re-integrated into the UK. Help could be given to them to do so!

    • Or the British government could help them relocate to the Ilse of man and they can have all their marches and bonfires to their heart's content.

    • I am sure that would go down well with most Western countries, Ireland wouldn't be made a pariah state at all for engaging in an act of war. The Republic is a neutral country, with a peace keeping / defence force, they are not geared up for attacking another country nor does it's constitution allow for it.

    • That would work alright - Falklands 2.0 for Boris. :)

  • Don't tell anyone, but I have a big man crush on Phil. I'm to old for that. "It must be love, love.. Nothing more nothing less. Phil is the BeST". 😎 Happy thoughts.

  • Here’s what will happen.There will be a hard border.The situation will be volatile for a bit but then people in Ireland will get tired and bored of kicking off, brexit will be done and dusted, and all will be happy ever after.Except Phil.He’ll still be making videos.

    • @Harry St. George Big deal that, for Morroco.

    • @AI- D they are usually both

    • @Harry St. George Perhaps we can swap some class B water molluscs unfit for human consumption for mixed fertilizers, insulated wire or cable and a Renault Kangoo?

  • Kick little Brëxiteur Ängerland out of the so called ük - Problem solved!

    • @Olmost Gudinaf Think about it, they are the ones that caused this problem in the first place. Logical solution to that certainly should be to get rid of the problem (aka little Brëxiteur Ängerlanders).

    • That's what it's always been about anyway.

  • Your mate getting slung out of that pub was hilarious! lol....talk about mugged off! hahahaha. And the only way to sort out NI is scrap the deal and RIP up the WA!...job done! We dont need ANY trade with the scumEU, we have trade agreements with 63 other countries. Remember you losers saying no countries would trade with us? and if they did it would take years? Remember that do you? hahahahahahahahahahahaha!!! BREXIT I LOVE YOU!!

    • "We dont need ANY trade with the scumEU, we have trade agreements with 63 other countries" That's great. Why don't you tell your fellow Brexiters that? You know the ones constantly blaming the EU for losing trade. Tell them to just sell their stuff to the rest of the world and shut the fuck up about the EU. Thank you.

  • Very interesting insights. In my opinion the public in NI and rest UK should start talking about this rather early, and not only a few weeks before the vow happens. Because an uninformed vote bears the risk of avoidable tensions flaring up. Talking about it now could also be a push to make the protocol work. Last but not least, the DUP nutters surely are discussing it internally how hey best can exploit this mechanism and manipulate the facts on the ground and public opinion for their own political ends - and to prevent this from happening, an informed public is the best method.

    • @Olmost Gudinaf for all that, only england and wales voted for brexit, and even there a much reduced portion of the electorate. elections in NI are a fair bit higher outcome I believe?

    • @Olmost Gudinaf It was Tory greed and ineptitude coupled with gullible voters that listened to demonstrable liars who broke election laws are what brought us Brexit.

    • @Olmost Gudinaf GET OUT OF MY PUB

    • @English Patriot1980 "Nationalism is a beautiful thing" - So you fully support the SNP and its push for an independent Alba from that failing state on its border. Good on you.

    • @English Patriot1980 Do remember that you asked for a description of a far-right country. That meant a conjunction of traits was going to be provided by anyone who tried to give an honest answer. As for nationalism per se. There's nothing wrong with it as manifested in some forms. E.g. taking pride in the quality of the education system or the successes in eliminating poverty or having a culture that produces good clean streets and good architecture while managing to avoid yielding huge quality of life disparities. Those are all things one can take national pride in without displaying any personal qualities as debased as a propensity for cruel glee or the forms of collectivist irrationality that routinely lead to suffering en masse. When one ties national pride to race though or takes pride in how much land their military conquers and forces they dominate, that nationalism has taken a dark turn

    • @More Please primitive is his interpretation, not mine.Nationalism is a beautiful thing.Every country should have one.

    • @English Patriot1980 primitively nationalistic and authoritarian sounds brilliant to you but you think the xenophobic trait doesn't fit? That's kind of funny. It's very hard to have a primitively nationalistic country that isn't xenophobic. The traits kind of go hand in hand.

  • I understand that the demographics in Northern Ireland are closer now to a republican position, than they were in 2015/16. If so why not a simple border poll now? A new survey suggesting that a majority of people in Northern Ireland has been greeted with a mixed response from unionists and nationalist parties. DUP First Minister Arlene Foster said on Sunday that such a referendum would be “absolutely necessary” while Sinn Féin Deputy First Minister Michelle O’Neill said there was an “unstoppable conversation” being conducted on Northern Ireland’s future. The poll was published days after former British chancellor of the exchequer George Osborne predicted that due to Brexit “Northern Ireland is already heading for the exit door” out of the union. The poll carried out by LucidTalk for the Sunday Times found that 51 per cent of 2,392 people surveyed in Northern Ireland supported a referendum in the next five years with 44 per cent opposed and 5 per cent not having an opinion. It also found that Northern Irish voters by a margin of 48 per cent to 44 per cent think there will be a united Ireland within 10 years. Under the 1998 Belfast Agreement a Border poll can be called by the Northern Secretary “if at any time it appears likely to him/her that a majority of those voting would express a wish that Northern Ireland should cease to be part of the United Kingdom and form part of a united Ireland”. Here the poll found that 47 per cent was in favour of maintaining the North’s link with Britain with 42 per cent in favour of a united Ireland, which is quite short of the criterion required to call a Border poll.

    • it can only be done every i believe 6 or 8 years. So you don't trigger it unless you really positive about the outcome. Now is not time to trigger it there is a good chance that the negative affects of Brexit might push over some more people to reunification.

  • You're Phil and you like talking about getting consent for the NIPs...

  • dont worry nigel, will sort it out.

  • Everything we do is legal. They just feel like it's illegal. They should get therapy. We are in charge of all the things we do or don't do. We won't be told, that we did or didn't do by others. We don't do or do do that by ourselves. We need no one. Cuz they might help. If we wanted help. We'd do it ourselves. If the Universe wanted us to help ourselves. It would have given us the skills.

    • @Lee Miller Happy Feet(Fish) 🎶🎶🎶

  • I'd never thought of that idea, the concept that each country in the UK must, though their separate parliaments, support any change. That really would be very democratic and mean that each region would have to approve any change that affects it but allow each region to invoke policy that affects it alone (where that can be safely or sensibly devolved). So if Wales were not convinced that it would benefit by a policy that Scotland, Norther Ireland, and England agreed to then it would not go through until it had been sufficient altered by suite the Welsh. Reminds me somewhat of another democracy on your doorstep.

    • If Scotland and Ireland did not want to do what England wanted it wouldn't happen . If I understand that means no brexit?? For example.

    • @julian shepherd I'm sure there are plenty of people who would take great pleasure in seeing the UK disband. Personally I see that as an internal matter for those living there and, as I am not one, I shan't get involved for one side or the other except to say that if people do decide that it is for the best then make sure it really is and not just driven by malice as brexit was. I'd suggest that it is exceptionally unlikely that the UK government would allow the UK to adopt this federal approach unless their backs were against the wall. So if NI, Wales, and Scotland decided democratically they wanted to hold a vote, then the UK parliament might offer federalism as an incentive to stay. I can equally see how some in England would see that as allowing those smaller nations to hold England to ransom, but I see it no differently to allowing, for example, the Netherlands to have power over what the EU agrees.

    • Bit late for federalism. No one would trust England not to just ignore it when it felt like it. The Union is fatally wounded. 16-35 y o are 72% in favour of Independence.

    • Yeah, if only there was a Union like that to show us a precedent. Preferably in Europe.

    • Like a proper union of nations.

He welcomed the new service, adding: “Any solution that makes imports more effective, or eases trading with alternative countries, may well be a great opportunity for helping the UK source fresh produce from around the world.” It is to be recalled that January 1, 2021 marked the start of a new era in economic relations between Morocco and the UK, which existed on that day the European Union (EU). At the same time, the Association Agreement signed with Morocco in London on October 26, 2019, entered into force. This bilateral agreement restores all the benefits that the two countries accorded to each other under the Morocco-EU Association Agreement. The Moroccan and British governments are expected to hold a high-level meeting in London in the coming weeks to push economic and trade relations even further.

    • Phils working on his studio tan

    • @jimbop it's the sad eyes of a person who saw country going down the drain from the actions of traitors like you.

    • Getting sun in england? Few achieve that there even in summertime.

  • There is one more "legal way"... the EU parliament becoming fed up and voting down the Brexit deal.

    • @georges raimondeau And that reason for the UK to unilaterally keep honouring an agreement is..? I know that remoaners' mythology is rich, where does this UK's "unilateral breach" come from? You always keep saying that but never show what is in breach. BTW that circlejerk over rogue state is really desperate. Even if the UK broke international law other countries do so too all the time, as does the EU. To call the UK immediately a rogue state is childish and wrong of you. It's the project fear that gets you laughed at.

    • @e3498112 What about the TCA is only provisional until being approved by the European Parliament, whilst the WA is already approved by both the UK and the EU Parliaments, and therefore is a legal International Treaty? You cannot kill the TCA because it doesn't exist yet. Right now, the UK is already unilaterally in breach of the WA /Irish Protocol. In International law, the UK is what is called a rogue state fully untrustworthy.

    • @georges raimondeau Yes it would. Tell me one reason why the UK should honour the WA unilaterally. If the EU kills the TCA it will kill the WA with it.

    • @e3498112 No it wouldn't. The WA and Irish Protocol are the divorce agreement, nothing forces the two former partners to share the same house afterwards;

    • You could be onto something there, it wouldn't be a good look for the EU ( infact it would be quiet evil) but the EU could propose a trade.. trade deal ratification for a border poll ( assuming the UK's current economic trajectory puts pressure on the UK government to make things better)

  • Thanks for your video.

  • Do not take it as given that the protocol will be voted away in 4 years time. Pay attention to results of May election. As far as I am aware D U P are largest party by just 1 M L A.

The new direct shipping route will help Moroccan products avoid the border friction created by Brexit on goods arriving via Europe by road. This new weekly RoRo route, which will directly link Tangier to Poole in the south of England with no additional stops, and which will be run by United Seaways, should allow Moroccan products to access English territory in less than three days, against more than six days currently by land. This new path should also help to avoid traffic congestion and additional import procedures caused by Brexit. The information was confirmed to British media by United Seaways, the British maritime transport specialist, whose mission is to develop British cross-border trade, by identifying and opening new sea routes between the United Kingdom and destinations deemed strategic. While it will initially focus on providing an alternative route to lorries already travelling to the UK via Europe, United Seaways said it hoped it would encourage British importers to increasingly source from North Africa. United Seaways MD Zeyd Fassi Fehri said the service would create a “sustainable and environmental alternative” when it is launched in the coming months. “The speed and efficiency of the vessel ensures a longer shelf life for fresh products whilst the reduction of road congestion, tolls and additional import procedures that have arisen since Brexit brings wonderful added value.” United Seaways claimed the service would be “competitively priced” against the land route, despite the vessel likely returning empty to Morocco at least at the beginning.

    • @Carch P. Glauca Not saying it will. But the count and result will be interesting

    • this does not mean they have a majority though.

  • Have a border poll.

  • "Tory hard BREXIT"? It's BRINO!

    • @Ian Haskins Well, brexit was bound to create a losing side, and therefor break the GFA's precarious balance. Ask the brexitters why they voted for that. NI itself voted against brexit. We only have to accept that - for now - brexit is a fact, so someone has to lose. Theresa May decided it would be the brexitters in England that had to lose. Johnson decided to have the NI unionists lose in stead. The nationalists couldn't lose because the GFA protected them - as did the US and the EU.

    • @Brian Wilde Gee Whizz Batman.

    • @Joe Millar I have asked people Joe. Of course that means my evidence is anecdotal but I'm entitled to my personal view. If there were to be a referendum it would generate a national debate, on both sides of the border, on a scale we have never seen before and that means the outcome is unpredictable. Politics is usually about economics when all else is said and done and while (it goes without saying) a unification ballot would be about much more than economics, my instinct is that economics would end up with the casting vote, by default.

  • This makes Boris's head hurt. Scenario and order effects analysis are not skills Tory MPs and Brexiteers have. It's more fun and easier to blame the EU.

  • Is Eustace a fool or a liar? answers on a postcard... George Eustace, has been bragging about the vast amounts of cash he has been stealing from the Brexit supporting tax payers, by enacting policies that he is paid fortunes for, through his farm in Cornwall where he pays below minimum wage to many of the workers. He said to Tom Swarbrick "I can easily swindle these Brexiteers because they won't admit they have been conned with the Brexit [email protected], and so, they won't complain about my lying and thieving either or it will look like an admission that they may have been duped for everything" Eustace, well known as a serial liar and con man, continued to brag about how easy it was to talk the government into paying "ever more heaps of cash into my farming business" to Tom Swarbrick, a right wing reporter on LBC, it was presumed by Eustace that Swarbrick "wasn't going to spill the beans, because he's a Tory boy like me" said Eustace, "Holy shmoley I screwed up there, I hope they won't come after me for any of the money back, because it's all gone on my unusual lifestyle and some other little luxuries"

  • Does he care? Only as far as it affects his electoral chances.

  • Media will just show Starmer being thrown out of a pub, and Johnson sitting alone in a school classroom, drawing matchstick men with a crayon. A TV voxpop will then follow, with folks going: "Eee's doin' 'is best..."
