We can no longer use our EHIC cards for free in Europe. 

Looks like the EHICs will be useable till their expiry dates.

And perhaps they will work out a replacement system.

That's what I call a clean BREXIT in which we can "do our own thing" - just in a more unnecessarily complicated way.

Thank you, Buffoon!

As you doubtless noticed, my great age and maturity held me in check briefly, stopped me from replying in a manner that would give Oxter the Dry Boakes.

I made no mention of my dexterity at being a Cunning Linguist.

 

I think I got away with it.  :P

If you can't recognise a typo, then poor you. To anyone with an ounce of perspicacity it would have been obvious that the final "d" should be an "r".😈

I take it Santa didn't bring you what you asked for yesterday.

Begone foul beast and take your grumpiness with you.

Far be it from me to become involved in a sterile, useless debate about the accuracy or correct deployment of words, of their spelling etc...

 

but... :)

 

... I believe that a quality such as “perspicacity” simply cannot be measured using Imperial units such as an ounce.

(additionally, in the case of oaksoft/perspicacity you might, more accurately, be better using micro grams)

So a measurable amount then. I'll take that as a compliment, back-handed though it might be.

Good article by Will Hutton

I was one of the millions opposed to Brexit. I’ve seen nothing here to change my mind | Brexit | The Guardian

It echoes (with benefit of now knowing what crap "deal" has been agreed) the opening three - at least - comments on this thread.

 

I read its ultimate message as positive. :)

One of two things will happen. Brexit will either be a huge success, in which case that's a good thing. Or it will crash and burn in which case we'll be back in the EU within a decade.

The problem isn't Brexit itself. The problem is the wafer-thin victory in the referendum.

That is the problem Sturgeon has to address when Indyref2 happens otherwise we'll see constant moves to re-attach us to the UK.

Referendums that important should require a mandatory 60% of all votes cast in favour of change for that to happen.

Not even out of the EU yet and we're leading the way in exporting to the rest of the world.

Well done Boris.:whistle

Canada, Sweden and Spain become latest countries to report new coronavirus variant | The Independent

A bit rich putting the blame on Johnson for this?

Isn't it down to other countries to control their borders? 

With that list of countries I'm far from convinced this has all come from the UK. 

PS Just seen it's The Independent. :rolleyes:

SNP being the disgraceful party they are, quite literally acting like complete arses in HOC currently over Brexit.

It’s done, accept it ffs !

I think it's more of a "we've been done (up like a kipper)".

There's a difference between acceptance and acquiescence. If they'd voted Yes they'd have been accused of insincerity like Keir Starmer was by Michael Gove in his closing speech...

Quote

Michael Gove, the Cabinet Office minister, is speaking now.

He says Sir Keir Starmer’s speech was eloquent, but not sincere. It was like his attitude to Jeremy Corbyn, he says.

He says Starmer tried to keep the UK tied to EU structures. But now he is saying that he will not even mention Europe in Labour leaflets at the next election.

This is similar to the way Starmer used to support Corbyn, but now has distanced himself from him, he says.

That'll be the Tories line of attack on Starmer until the next GE - "Starmer's a remainer, always was, always will be" and will take us back into the EU by the back door if you vote Labour. Better sticking to your principles like the SNP did and either abstain or vote against!

Between this and covid, you are going to end up giving yourself an ulcer. :blink:

Obsessing over all this stuff is not conducive to a content life.

Have you ever written in to the BBC to complain about repeats on TV?

Have you ever written to the local paper to complain about  youngsters these days"?
