Grayling on R4 this morning spoke absolute twatwaffle about May's speech and how Britain will change. It was incredibly nebulous, and he sounded like he was just reading it ans didn't believe it himself. I was amused.


I just made the mistake of listening to that. It was awful. Almost nothing of substantive content was said. What a waste of time.

I spent a couple of hours with him in his Parliament office when he was shadow transport sec'. He's as dumb as a box of hair whose entire career seems to be thanks to the fact that he willingly plays the role of lightning rod for the leader.

May just basically said that she wants a two year transition where basically nothing will change. Brexit can just firmly kicked two more years down the road

Most of it was pretty vacuous, as seems par for the course these days.
I'm not sure how having our arrangements to keep in line with changing EU regulations is going to be any better than the existing EEA arrangements.

Also, she really can't do rousing speeches, and shouldn't try. That part was painful.

Do you think the EU will say "No deal, or stay" come 2019 and push away any transition stuff?

If they don't agree to the transition, we fall out of the EU in March 2019 automatically.

Wasn't there an "Oh, we didn't really mean it" Art50 straw of hope?

I'm pretty sure that if we came begging back, the EU would find a way. But I'm not sure we'd get the rebate back.

Michel Barnier's response - http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_ST ... 427_en.htm

We look forward to the United Kingdom's negotiators explaining the concrete implications of Prime Minister Theresa May's speech.

He's basically saying that Mrs May no longer gets fashion tips from Vogue but now uses the Emperor's tailors.

Low effort Photoshop after reading that the cost of Brexit per household is about £4.2K compared to £317 for staying in.

Quote:
Doubt has been cast over one of the longest-standing economic claims in the Brexit debate after a Sky investigation revealed that Britain's real exports to outside the EU are actually far lower than official figures suggest.

The Government's trade statistics show that, over the past five years, the share of UK goods being exported to the European Union was only 46% - a fact frequently referred to by those who campaigned for Brexit.

However, this number is severely distorted by the flow of gold bullion in and out of London - the world's major centre for the trade of this precious metal.

When gold is excluded from the trade figures, the numbers are transformed - with half of UK physical exports over the past five years going to the EU.
...
Since the vast majority of this gold is shipped to non-EU countries such as China, Switzerland and India, the upshot of these gold figures is to swell the total amount of goods reported as being shipped outside Europe.
...
In the fourth quarter of last year, a sharp outflow of gold showed up as a sudden spike in exports, causing some economists to conclude that Britain's manufacturers were starting to benefit from a post-Brexit jump in confidence.

In fact, the spike was primarily a sign of investors pulling gold out of vaults in London.

Ho. My.

On one hand, I am taking great delight in how much is being exposed, on the other, saddened that Labour aren't saying "Ich nicten licten, but we've got to go along with it" and instead His Savioir of Us All saus he wants to rescue the idiotic project.


It's all coming out in the wash.
