    The ever increasing reliance on make believe, shaming tactics, and down right folly that, DA and his side kick have resorted to over the last few weeks have drawn me towards the conclusion that they themselves have given up the ghost.
    The hope that the 'gallant', Kier Starmer, will save the day by riding bare-back, a top of Corby at full gallop into the enemy lines, whilst reciting edited versions of past, and present bills, just ain't going to cut it.

    Cheers.

    Now, now, Filly. That's a bit harsh.
    The propaganda machine that is the, EU, can brainwash even the best of folk.

    In fact, studies have shown that those who class themselves as 'educated' are more susceptible to said brainwashing.
    It's a confidence trick.

    I would still pay, DA, a handsome sum for a vial of his tears nonetheless.
    Pride of place on the mantlepiece.

    You two would be quite a funny and an almost cute double act, if only you weren't so bludy scary.

    DA, Jack, do you see this man as a typical leaver, or is he somebody that knows more than most how exactly the EU works.




    If the latter, why is he so damming of them and their rediculess demands.??

    Dyson is a very rare exception to the rule, I have to agree.

    Very rare.

    Extremely rare.

    A bit simplistic his thinking, I feel tho', all based on his own company's behaviour.

    And his blaming of the failure in the negotiations on the EU is just completely unfair.

    The UK are obliged to pay what we agreed to pay as part of the EU, until these obligations are ended.

    Bluntly, I disagree with most of what he says. We could simply 'walk away'? I don't think so...

    So James Dyson who's dealt with the EU regulations for a good few years, or DA a keyboard warrior on a builders web forum.

    Who do we believe and side with.??

    Answers on a postcard to T.May, 10 Downing Street, London, SW1A 2AA.

    :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    The EU are being totally unreasonable in the negotiations.
    We are not obliged to pay anything other that our membership fees up until march2019.
    If the EU do not stop trying to 'punish' the UK, we can and must simply walk away.

    The, EU are playing victim to the circumstances that they've created.
    And you're calling it unfair?
    What-the-......

    You, a liar.

    Because - as you know - that's not what I said.

    Dyson blames the failure of the negotiations on the EU. We'll, unless you are utterly deluded - or a rabid Brexiter - you will know that the UK side, and Davis in particular, carries at least half the blame. (That's me being generous...)

    Dyson reckons busting out on WTO terms ain't a problem, because his company already trades on WTO terms with parts of the world and it ain't been a problem for him. But he doesn't deal in foodstuffs, farming or most other commodities.

    Do you understand now what I mean by his arguments being 'simplistic'?

    Yeah, 'what the', Longs.

    I visualise you drooling as you become less and less articulate.

    You give the visions in your head far to much credence, DA.
    Are they by any chance accompanied with audio?

    You managed to be honest for one whole sentence...
    Then you had to go and spoil it.
    Tut, tut.
