Brexit and cabinet agreement

Post by blythburgh » Sun Jul 08, 2018 9:55 am

I got this from someone else who got it off Twitter I think:

"If Nigel Farage is angry about it then something good must have happened".

Well it is good that there is a cabinet agreement and the PM is back in charge but the agreement of the cabinet is a very long way from a deal yet. I can only hope and pray that an agreement is reached with the rest of the EU that is good for the country as a whole.

I'd lower your sights and aim for something that is not as bad as it could have been.

What I want is to stay a member of the EU but that is never going to happen so I can only hope and pray for the best outcome at the talks for Britain.

People's jobs are at risk if we mess this one up. That will not affect me personally as we are retired and have no children. But inflationary food prices would affect us of course. But to me the most important thing is people's jobs.

Hi T, Govey here.
Far be it from me to blow my own trumpet, but I'm your man. Boris won't offer in case he actually has to accept it and anyway if he does I'll just be like 'no Boris, I'm doing it' and he'll be like 'oh no I'm scared now' and I'll be like 'nominate me' and he'll go 'et tu Govey' and not do it anyway.
And Moggy hides chimney sweep boys in his pantry and wants us all to speak latin so he can't do it. Just sayin.
Peace out.
Govey

"the son of a Czech-born Jewish father, who came to Britain in 1938 as a refugee" (according to Wiki) and leading member of the Leave campaign. Luckily for him we were more welcoming to foreigners in 1938 than we are now ;)

Does he have right to remain? :eh:

I think putting into that role an apparatchik who previously called for an end to the working-time directive and the withdrawal of rights for agency workers says everything you want to know about the state of May's government. Having him present an "EU-friendly" strategy is like someone calling a puppy with a biscuit, but with a rolled-up newspaper hidden behind their back.
