If the UK lessens its privacy protection to the point where we'd not count as safe harbour under GDPR that'd be a disaster for any kind of services organisation.

The jigsaw has been thrown in the air and it is expected to fall to the ground complete. I have every confidence.

As Mr Johnson's promised us a deadline, we'll have to take bets on whether he reverses himself in June or December.

Anyway, it's not no-deal any more. It's "Australia Minus".

I sometimes wonder if the government have yet to realise that playing to the gallery and sounding tough in public was a viable option when we were part of the club and able to be more nuanced behind its doors but not so much when you're outside all of it.

Particularly on Brexit, this government is (by self-selection) comprised entirely of the most cynical and shabby of manipulators and the most dim-witted self-delusionists. Anyone else fled or was purged long ago. So, I don’t think they realise much at all.

I’m allowed to make jokes about a small country that is internationally overshadowed by its larger neighbour.

Yeah but those kiwis say 'fish and chips' and 'six' kinda funny so I believe they are fully deserving of this.

Oh, and they also call thongs flip-flops 'jandals'

My new manager started today. He has a very strong kiwi accent and I was really struggling not to ask him to say this.

My (Irish) girlfriend gets enormous amusement from hearing me pronounce 'Curly-wurly'.

One of my colleagues used to like to ask staff at our Liverpool office to say, 'Purple worms.'

This only amused her if they were Liverpudlians, if course.

That's racist. Curly Wurly is pretty funny from a Scouser also

Much of this is new to me.

I recall much amusement when a Portuguese colleague referred to 'Simon Huge'... He couldn't pronounce Hughes at all. Oh, and he said 'giga' all strange too

A decent article about the chlorinated chicken thing here:

https://www.wired.co.uk/article/chloria ... ken-brexit

Can't wait to see how the idiots fail to deal with all the intractable details like this, fishing rights and the dozens of others that will no doubt come along.

Today's article on Chris Grey's consistently well-informed Brexit Blog is even gloomier than one would expect for a gloomy Friday 13th in the midst of a global pandemic.

Quote:
...it is a reasonable expectation that the panic buying occasioned by coronavirus fears is only a small taste of what is likely to occur next January, because some and perhaps many businesses will not be able prepare in that timescale. In due course, that will settle down as businesses adapt to the new situation, but in doing so the costs which frictionless trade and international JIT production and distribution had stripped out will be re-instated, meaning either that businesses will cease to be viable or that prices will increase, or both. Other things being equal, those costs will be permanently locked in to the British economy
