    Brilliant ...I must use that one! Unionists in general seem a bit confused or conflicted about the Border. The DUP may find there's nobody behind them when it comes down to checkpoints and tariffs. And Leo seems to have ruled out the pre-registering wheeze. Surely it is only a matter of time for 'the men in the grey suits' to tell May the news , ie stay in the Customs Union or we are pulling the plug? Property values in London down 15% which is no bad thing , but not sweet music to the Tories and their backers I would have thought.

    The London property market has been a very obvious corrupt bubble for years...there might be a reason why Corbyn (who seems to be a genuine leftist) voted for Brexit.....

    It's an ill wind and all that. Plenty of cheap housing when the City jobs have gone. I suppose most of it will be kept vacant though , like our own ghost estates. The Dutch are recruiting 900 ppl in customs and excise and they can't get enough vets to check animals apparently. So if you know anyone.....!

    Interesting, as you say, ill wind and all that.

    There has been little sign of the men in grey suits having any say in Brexit. The Brexiteer ideologues are the ones exerting their influence. That combined with the Tory press whipping up little Englander delusions of grandeur fervour is making a hard Brexit probable.

    For the Unionist hard-liners that will be a very hollow victory as control of NI will quickly slip out of their hands. For the Unionists it is a case of "be careful what you wish for, you just might get it".

    This is hilarious. Quite obviously and predictably, British companies and individuals will no longer be eligible to register .eu domain names post-Brexit. So the EU has sensibly notified this a year in advance to give companies and IT departments time to make other arrangements.

    The reaction from Brexiteers across t'intertubes is one of horrified Outrage and an elevated state of High Dudgeon at the tyrannical bullying nassty trickssy Yurpeens.

    Morons LOL
