Not so much here in East Herts. It's not that far, but never "Hemel".

I may be atypical.

Interesting. Are you one of those people who pronounce it Emile, a la Heskey? I hear that a lot.

The dude is an author, and the thread journey is contrived to get to the conclusion so far.

Brexit ex pat parents.
Labourer son who is both incredibly stupid but mysteriously well informed.
The author is friends with the mayor
The mayor is willing to play along.
The son's reponse is always a tick box in ill-informed low level racism triggers.
Throw in a luddite solictor, who is paranoid about webcams, but more than happy to divulge any and all information to a random author who has no interest in the situation.
Add a touch of outraged boss who is willing to slag off his amusingly dodgy employee.

It's entertaining, but it's all made up.

Is he though? I did an admittedly very small amount of Googling earlier and couldn't find anything about an author RS Archer writing 'David Saunders' books. Which is weird in itself, why make such a public claim when it's easily proven to be nonsense?

This I have not heard! No, pure "Hem-ul".

R.S. Archer.
Wrote a series of books, bought a boat, got prostate cancer, died an American hero. RIP this stock photo. May it rest in peace.

A few days ago, there was much backslapping and Hi5s all around as a letter was sent. Here it is

Aye. Embarrassing and pathetic. You'd have thought that the Eurosceptics would, over 40 years, have actually come up with some idea of what leaving might look like. Unfortunately, I'm now reconciling myself to the forthcoming disaster because no amount of warnings or request for more detail on how such-and-such a change is actually an improvement has ever yielded any decent response. I'd have thought Dominic Cummings and his superforecasters would have been all over the benefits of not being in a single market or customs union with our closest neighbours (let alone a part of the same country!) but here we are.

Another day, news of another government advertising campaign about how excitingly complicated and burdensome life after 1st January will be. The only ray of light might be that actually introducing all of this makes people realise just how much of a ride they've been taken on, but it would still take years to rectify.

Who do you think will bear the increased costs of imported food?

1) the supplier
2) the supermarket
3) the customer

Gonna be spendy.

We’re gonna build an empire, and make the EU pay for it!

Cornwall Council calls on government to provide £700m to replace EU funding

Good luck with that.

Why don't Cornwall go to their own Government?

The BBC [url=https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-53685266] that the government are spending £355m to help businesses with new customs forms when moving goods from Northern Ireland to Great Britain. Nowhere in the article does it mention that this something Mr Johnson repeatedly said would never happen, and that he would be happy for companies to send him any forms to throw away.

This is, of course, all on top of the plans to turn Kent into a car park. Unfortunately we're in for a tough few years whilst we wait for the chlorinated chickens to come home to roost.
