Damn, sorry about that mate, them old EU regulation

pipes was it? fit British Standard quality pipes,

no probs. You are a good writer, and I like stuff

you say, but its usually wrong.  All the best for

the New Year, T.

Thanks, same to you !

 

It was a flexi hose to the tap that went - I put it in 15  years ago so maybe it's past is best by now ... bit like a few on here 

 

Of course it went while I was out....

 

Problem is water pressures are much higher in France - my meter has a reducing valve to bring the house side down to 7 bar  and the pressure release valve on the hot water side goes off at 9 bar - Usually dribbles a bit out a couple of times a day, so it must be reaching that.

Mate, you got old Grouse on the Irish whiskey, but

its still not right, it should be Oirish whiskey.

Believe or not, north Essex water is supplied by a

French co., nasty EU chemical taste, but I've got

a well now, piped half a kilometer from top of hill.

I have to admit I've let the side down a bit. I drive

a French crappy tin snail.. well, no-ones perfect.

"interesting"? developments

........

 

since the clear policy view by Cameron and TM three years ago

a LOT of work has been invested in producing MESS and chaos

 

now,

whatever happens with Brexit, there are lessons to be learned  from this process

one  would hope that UK is up to learning from it and fix shortcomings so it doesn't happen again

 

(if I  were a UK mechanic I know where I would start)

 

 

 

The problem is that what was promised all those years ago is not something that is available. Negotiations were not stalled by the EU but by reality.

 

A good number of MPs have not yet admitted to themselves that reality does not coincide with their worldview. The same is true with much of the population of the UK, but they at least have the excuse that it's not their job to understand these things.

 

Politicians on the other hand have no such excuse. Whether it  is just the quality of people who go into politics these days, our electoral system which elects stupid people or a civil service decimated by tory cuts that can't offer the sage advice it used to, I don't know, but we seem to have a completely useless bunch in now who have no idea how to proceed.  

 

I don't know if we will learn from it , maybe a hard Brexit and the ensuing chaos is what the country needs to rebuild itself from scratch. It's not something I would like to have to live through though.

...& take it again afterwards if they fail?

A fairly predictable outcome when you pose a question before the solution has been analysed, something that many seem unable to grasp.

come week of 14th January a solution may surface

unless TM changes  her mind again may-deal is up for voting

if it flies - thats the way then -

 

next step will be to ensure that the process following 29th March is meaningful

in my view that means getting rid of TM asap

but alas, if may-deal flies politicians will be inclined to stay with her

so she will be in good position to crap down after 29 March negotiations

 

 

may-deal voted down?

no-deal Brexit then me thinks

 

----

alternatively parliament gets rid of TM asap,

as soon as they are back after xmas,

take charge - debate the issue - synthesize what they want - and do it

including consulting with EU

 

 

 

 

IIRC after TM won the latest vote of confidence she is safe from the Tory party for a year.

 

The only way to get rid of her now (unless she volunteers to go) is by a general election which Labour must win and become the ruling party in parliament.

 

Personally I would not be happy if that should happen.

PM and her cabinet can still be ousted with a non conf in gov. motion if passed by parliament.

(I think)

 

(don't know what effect, if any, the non conf that Corbyn tabled before xmas will have, if treated and passed)

 

(there are ways and means to help TM to volunteer to go)

No deal brexit (once it was obvious that the eu had no intention of genuinely negotiating) is easy to "grasp" - but uk politicians have no intention of doing so - IMO.

 

They should have started preparing for no deal when the eu came out with it's negotiating 'agenda list'.  Instead, they agreed to the eu's ridiculous agenda list..... and then May declared "no deal is better than a bad deal" in an attempt to distract attention from the unbelievably bad agreed agenda list (from the uk's POV), to delude the electorate.....

 

Now, May has changed to this to 'accept my and the eu's appalling deal (for the uk) - or no brexit'!

 

The only slightly 'bright' side, is that politicians have painted themselves into a 'corner' - as they know the electorate realise that the 'deal' is very bad indeed, so it seems unlikely that May will get MPs to support her 'deal' as they're not suicidal 😁.  Subsequently, genuine brexit may happen by default.

easy to agree with lots of that (hindsight is the only true wisdom)

 

but on the background of your sketch above you would still let TM continue with UK and UK's future as her personal plaything

rather than follow a path that could risk a Corbyn/Labour government.

you are at least in good company - there are many on these Brexit threads that strongly oppose Corbyn

 

seems to me that somehow what is happening now (and has been happening for the past couple of years)

is that UK after 40+ years is being dragged out of EU and placed on a path of independent/sovereign country

by the lesser of 2 evils (tm vs jc)

 

not really a good way of building a good future for UK

"but on the background of your sketch above you would still let TM continue with UK and UK's future as her personal plaything"

 

It's v. obvious that the uk's future is not May's "personal plaything", as even MPs know that her 'deal' is very bad indeed - and so she had to postphone the vote in an attempt to win them over.....  An attempt likely doomed to failure as the electorate know that her 'deal' is only a good deal for the eu!

No idea why you would say this, as I've posted little about Corbyn - other than pointing out he's a hypocrite for not standing up for his beliefs?

re plaything;

TM's deal voted down or accepted, she will be in the driver's seat unless removed, free to continue her ways,

with parliament as pretty lame lookers on

even in the case of hard Brexit there will be tons and tons of issues to be sorted out with EU after 29th

 

sorry if I misunderstood you

but in post #943 above I understood that you expressed likely unhappiness in the case that JC should take over

 

(at any rate as we say in Yorkshire,

 regardless of what we express here on TVF this process will proceed along its skewed path

 offering amusement to some and despair to some

 (unless some drastic measures are taken and somebody take charge))

 

anyway

Belhaven time!

John McEnroe would have summed that up quite well.
