British Negotiators Give Brexit Bill The Finger

The arrogance of the EU exposed to all!

The fact is Brexit will leave a black hole in the accounts of the EU, which the remaining members don't know how to or want to plug.

The Incompetence of The Home Orifice Laid Bare For All To See!

Theresa May admitted that the Home Office made an “unfortunate error” when it mistakenly sent up to 100 letters to EU nationals living in the UK ordering them to leave the country or face deportation.

Theresa May's old department, just saying!

"Johnny Foreigner" Denies Brit Brexit Negotiators Water

As per the Telegraph, a civil servant wrote:
Yet the most significant bit of feedback to emerge from the slightly combative early meetings is also perhaps the most elemental one. Water. Or to be precise, the lack of it.

This was clearly not a perfectly understandable oversight, but a piece of outright treachery.”
The solution?

Bring British spa water to the meetings!

Deutsche Bank To Remain In London

It seems that Deutsche Bank was spouting hot air the other week when it threatened to leave London!

The Lost Year

Lord Macpherson nails it, by stating what I have said from day one:
Historically, Britain has always stared into the abyss, only to pull back.

My hope is that someone will get a grip before it’s too late.”
The question is, is Theresa May's control freakery the right way to "get a grip"?
