Yes, but, it's the same bloke standing in front of the cameras, telling us that everything is fine !
My comment was slightly tongue in cheek as, I'm ok with the vaccine. However, the utter disregard for N. Ireland, who have been thrown under the wheels of the Brexit Bus, is appalling.
Their plight was always one of the most difficult issues to solve but, instead of solutions, they were literally ignored and abandoned.
So far, albeit only 6 months down the line, Brexit has given nothing but, at least we have taken control of our Borders and allowed record numbers of illegal immigrants across The Channel.

And, true to form, we/they are blaming everyone else for all the things going wrong.
They are the party of personal responsibility after all.

Steve baker Brexit minister and deputy chair of the ERG saying Brexit is a fiasco and blaming Keit starmer !

As Britain now concedes that there will be massive implications for the city of London and tries to plan a tie up with Amsterdam to limit the damage !!!!

In other news The Daily Express reports that the EU are now taking Brexit revenge by charging British Tourists going to Europe

Yea tall they are doing is charging £6 per visit for a tourist visa like they charge every other country in the world ( except for those aligned to the EU)


Britain wanted out of Europe so they should be treated like other countries in the world.

This is not the EU’s fault . This is those who voted for Brexit.

Britain is only a petit poisson.

Still £6 is nothing compared to a few hundred thousand jobs. Billions of pounds of income, empty food shelves, no lorry drivers , shortages of care and hospitality staff, the destruction of fishing, the slow decline of agriculture , food standards etc

I see you have moved away from the scare of Covid - to the EU - is there no limit to your depths of gloom and doom?

I don't see hundreds of thousands of jobs going, I don't see empty shelves, I see shipping selling their products to new markets, most of the care staff didn't come from the EU, no lorry drivers has nothing to do with the leaving the the EU more about changes in self employment law, where have you seen lowering of food standards?

I appreciate you probably need Prozac to get through the day and you probably are too scared to leave the house but if you are going post stuff at least make it accurate - you are a moderator after all.

Fill yer boots. Go and read all the previous links in this thread.

And as for your comments about Covid all I have ever said is that the government needs to have proper plans in place to prepare for ongoing developments , new risks and avoiding the spread of Covid AND OTHER VIRUSES. in the winter by maintains some infection controls.

Not telling 8000 people in Mexico they have two days to get back .

There was a shortage of lorry drivers 10 years ago when i retired. The top & bottom of it is that nobody wants a job with such long hours as part of the package & the EU inspired Driving time directive of 15 hour working days was a killer for many people because many firms decided to insist that 15 hour days was the norm for their employees.

That’s strange because the EU driving directive is 9 hours per day or 10 hours twice a week. I think someone is not telling you the truth.
