 In the post I linked to.

Rubbish, that post is linked to Rookiescots, which links to mine debating the relevance of historic statements.

 

Kindly pick out the exact statement you were referring to, where you claim I stated the UK fishermen had already been sold out...

There will be no downside to Brexit, only considerable upside. David Davis   The day after we vote to leave we hold all the cards and can choose the path we want. Michael Gove

Why should the EU negotiate with an ex-member, that voted to leave ? They should let Britain stand outside in the cold for twenty or twenty-five years. Then maybe let them back in, if they ask nicely.

Hilarious so if  those 27  countries  all had an 3  trillion economy it should   be  81   trillion instead of the paltry 18.4  trillion

 (A month delay for the Boris bill....🤭...)

Brexit: House of Lords inflicts government defeat over devolved consent to Internal Market Bill powers
Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland would be given say over controversial use of powers contained in bill

The House of Lords voted for steps to force Westminster to seek the consent of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland before ministers are allowed to exercise powers contained in controversial legislation, with a majority of 77 votes.

 

The Labour-led change to the Internal Market Bill went further than the offer of consultation made by the government. However, while it requires the secretary of state to seek the agreement of the devolved nations before making regulations, it also makes provision to avoid the threat of a veto.

 

If consent is not given within a month, the minister can press ahead, but must publish a statement explaining why they have done so.

I think you’ve been confusing things. The one month is not related to the timeline to enact the Boris bill (so it is not a delay of the Boris bill). It would (potentially) delay any decisions made under the powers of that Bill (I.e., it will only be relevant after the Boris bill has been enacted).

It's still negativity, even if it comes from the BoE governor. Whenever have financial analysts been correct?

 

Now who's being insulting?

 

If you can't stay civil - better not stay...

 

It was not meant as an insult. It is true though. When facts change then change your mind.
