For Delta I have a Brexit update.

Lots of political types running round like headless chickens today, more worried about the state of the current governing party than the future of the country. Many of them sense blood and fancy their name on the executive washroom, but none of them are particularly appetising.

The current Managing Director, God rest her soul, has done her best, the idea that anyone else - Leaver, Remainer, Left, Right or Centre - could have done anything any better is frankly laughable.

They say "cometh the hour cometh the man" but I really can't see a white knight on the horizon. We are condemned to weeks, months, years more of this.

In a nutshell! At least while it’s all still being fought over the right to travel around Europe should remain unchanged.

Except I’m sure it will cost more!

Only if they want to be arsey. Everyone is aware that whilst we could travel freely we could only stay for 90days unless we were employed. That will persist except we may need to have our passports stamped (unlikely).

Did branding today,looked at the colours and what they represent and looking at the history and what it can come across to people.

The work experience question I posed came succesful,the CRDC have offered for me to go to Spa for the Summer Classic which I couldnt believe having never been and event I had liked to go to.My dad wanted me to go for it which I obviously all being well will do.

A must admit this politicala(cant stomach saying the blooming word ) situation is getting to much for my head.I think I should have done it 😁😁 would have probably been a more backed person with people leaving May left right and centre.The word was Brexi-cant finish it,nearly puked.😀🤕

That is/was the big problem with Johnny European coming to the UK, no one enforced the rule so they stayed and milked the system.

We should get some respite from brexit news clogging up our in-boxes as a week today is...... Black Friday!

The “50% off” emails have already started

I'm expecting to see Easter Eggs in the shops soon.

The thing is that it is the middle of November, Xmas day is a little over 6 weeks away and so we are, for those interested, very close to the point at which Advent Calendars are first opened.

Maybe not so crazy, though to me the whole thing is madness anyway.

If your neighbours are thinking they can get the lights set up in mild weather before they get snowed in they may have some logic to their madness. Or maybe this is the only time they have free to do it - perhaps they are all off to sunny climes for the next month or so .... from where they can sit and watch their lights via their security cameras.

Sorry to take issue, Joe but just where in the 28 member states of the EU is there any oppression?
I thought one of the requisites for EU membership was that the member country should have a democratic political system with free elections at regular intervals. Under those principles it's difficult to see where any oppression is rife. Certainly some member state economies are better than others and social security regimes more relaxed but that hardly makes those living in countries with worse economies/social security to be classed as oppressed.


I voted leave and that, to me, meant taking both the good and the bad about leaving. The present fudge is certainly not what I voted for and I think Mrs May has made too many mistakes in her tenure as PM and has been pushed around by the EU negotiators (and was actually a remainer) to survive. The pity is that the leading proponents of leave (Boris and Gove) did a swift two steps backwards when Cameron resigned after the result and were not men enough to stand up to their principles and lead the country in it's exit. I am starting to believe that a no deal exit might be the way forward. The current indications are that we will have to pay through the nose, get nothing (other than our freedom) and still have the chaos of a 'no deal'.

Did you hear that, John? A famous lawyer gave some perfectly legal tricks to protest and jam the trafic. Simple and ecologically correct, people have just to cross the street and do it again at any roundabout. In principle, being pedestrians they have the right to do so and cars won't pass
At last the famous "débrouillardise à la française" also called D system is back again! Enjoyable…
