Botley Road Flag Man update!

The local rag reports that a PCSO told him to take his sign down.

On the day of the referendum I sat out on a chair on Botley Road with a cup of tea and gloated with my dog.

I love a wind up and I like to have a bit of fun, everybody knows what I'm like.


I'm 100% sure that last bit is true.

His signs were all up when I passed the house this afternoon. They complement a neighbour's large bright orange "Liberal Democrats - Winning Here" sign well.

Well, the Withdrawal Agreement Bill goes to second reading today, and by some of the summaries I've seen they've helpfully stripped out elements involving any form of Parliamentary oversight of any agreements. Sad to see MPs vote to make themselves bystanders to it all, but I suppose we have to accept that we have a populist right-wing administration now that doesn't like criticism.

If I can up with a better thread title I'll change it, but my glibness and devils-advocating of the early days of this thread seem so horribly inappropriate now.

But, fuck it. Christmas!

Yep. I've often felt that the whole affair has been set up just to provide a feature-length sequel to King and Crewe's classic "Blunders of our governments".
It'll fuel the political science and legal PHd industry for decades.

If we're going to have annual independence day parties, couldn't we hold on a bit to at least get better weather?

The government's proposed increases in public spending and lack of tax to pay for it will probably cushion the immediate blow to the economy, but, like drinking with a hangover, will only exacerbate things later on.

Quote:
The chancellor, Sajid Javid, has warned that there will be no alignment with EU regulations once Britain’s exit from the European Union is made official.

In what is being seen as an opening salvo in the next stage of negotiations, he said the Treasury would not lend support to manufacturers that favour EU rules as the sector has had three years to prepare for Britain’s transition.

Someone got up and put on their big boy pants.
