They must be 10 very short days, as I only make it 9 days to Christmas!!

Of course, if you are waiting for a train in Paris I might take 10 days to get home...

Of course? Of course! Look, you try to travel in France without any official paper, no ID, no passeport, no Visa, no wallet, no cell phone, no nothing…*Of course it takes a while. Ask bauble and try this in Pakistan, and you'll see how fast our trains are. When you find one…

The Conservative Prime Minister of the day a bloke called Cameron, resigned and a certain lady named Teresa May got the job. She called a General Election, this was expected to be a walkover but a couple of terrorist incidents swung the focus of the campaign away from Brexit and on to more domestic matters. This worked out well for the Labour Party, now being lead by a Trotskie named Corbyn, who made a lot of ground from the incidents. Mrs May then proceeded to make a right bog of leaving the EU and was eventually slung out of no.10 and a cheery chap called Boris Johnson took over. He tried to get the UK out of the EU, but as nobody else wanted to leave, he was forced to call another election, and yesterday he won a majority for the Tory Party. In consequence of his overwhelming victory a number of existing MPs lost their seats, and are now regarded as 'Endangered Species'. Hence my comment re- 'Endangered Species' in my earlier post.

I hope this brings you up to speed on the current political situation in this country, however, I am sure that many of more learned members of our Historic Community will be able to fill in the gaps, correct any errors, and put us both right.

As always it has been my pleasure to help you to get a grip on real life,

Kindest possible regards,

Your faithful friend,

Bauble.
Thanks Bob. Blimey, I missed all that palaver. You think they'd cover it on the telly wouldn't you! How's a chap expected to keep in the know if it's never on the news?

Following their disastrous showing in the election the Labour leadership are wondering "What went wrong?"

They cannot see that nothing WENT wrong, they were just WRONG!
If you add one and one together and get three, nothing went wrong, you were just plain wrong.

Jo Swinson, was wrong, the Liberal party was wrong, yet it seems that as far as she is concerned she was right and the voters were wrong

She lost her leadership, lost her seat, lost her job, quite blind to the fact that she has apparently lost her mind.

While the country continues to let politicians run parliament. nothing much will change …. now if I were in …………...

Don't worry Grant, you can keep up-to-date on more important matters by watching the BBC TV.

Who will sweep the board in Strictly Come Prancing plenty of coverage of that particular World shaping event. Soon you may wish to vote for which Highly Paid Professional Sports Person, should be elected to the position of Interplanetary Sportsman of the Millenium.

Should either of these mega shows not burn your biscuit, then I am sure that Celebrity Get Me Out of Cooking's Got Talent Show. will float you ice cream.

No need to be bored over Christmas, just sit and watch the Great Escape.

Here is my youthful view, just get rid of the lot of them. The people should govern themselves. Not those who really don't have a clue of the lives of the many or don't have the bottle to do what is necessary in these unique times to say the least.

As I sit on a bench in the bitter cold that is this country at these times, cold in its manner and how it acts. The warmth will come, but it needs someone to ignite it, not another yes or no with no plan or understanding of what it takes to get the actual plans they talk about so frequently and fill peoples mind with. We have no leaders who would guide the warmth and it has turned to the cold

Will. I do have a different approach of saying things.

Extreme in my views I know. Maybe I made some of you chuckle . I certainly maybe or maybe not have a more unique view but just thought I contribute my own thoughts simple they may be on the matter.

Great Escape Bob. Great one there. Zulu aswell. They don't make em how they used to.

So, Simon H started this thread on 20th August 2018 to discuss the effect leaving the EU could have on our hobby / business......

Today’s the day- or is it? As far as my reading of the present situation is concerned, nothing will change until the end of the year, while we (and the EU of course) enjoy a period of grace. So no IDPs, no extra customs docs and your EHIC is still valid for this season, at least!

All sounds good, but as one of the better informed car mags has observed (and I found in the latter half of last season), be prepared for some confusion on the mainland as customs officials and Border controls are re-trained, increased in numbers and are adjusting to Brits not being part of the community any more.

If there’s any paperwork easily obtainable, such as insurance green cards, CMR notes or IDPs, may be an idea to carry them regardless.....
