More grim as Astra Zeneca halts investment in UK. No one voted to decimate medical research.

Here's a MEP no-one's ever heard of praising & invoking a proscribed terrorist organisation, & hinting at insurrection/high treason because he doesn't like the current Brexit proposal 😲 Dear God - the absolute state of English politics 😳

h/t I can't decide if this made Mr Hannan look more foolish then, or makes him look more foolish now.

Another baseless assumption. I don't think the EU is without fault. I think its benefits greatly outweigh its shortcomings. I do, however, scent putrefaction running right through the Leave campaign and the opportunistic, unprincipled politicians pushing it.

11th May, refered to the Met. 17th July, Vote Leave and BeLeave refered to Met. *7th September*, EC handover evidence to the Met. Met now have 900+ documents to go through before making a decision. If this isn't orchestrated foot-dragging, IDK what is.

This video of Trump saying that he never said he'd pay $1 million if Warren took a DNA test followed by him saying it on video is so unquestionably brutal, yet it won't make an ounce of difference. Because that's what we've come to expect from Trump.

I'm not a Scot; my employer doesn't get Brussels funding; the examples you've advanced are unconvincing. "Agreeing to disagree" would give your position a level of acknowledgement it really doesn't merit.

How much time would there be between "no deal" being confirmed, and "this House" being expected to take a position? What parliamentary process would that involve? Who would set out the available options? Or weren't those questions part of the government's "no deal" preparations?

Yes. When I was at the FTC, we (especially ) tried hard to get it through W3C, but the advertisers wanted enough exceptions that it would have been meaningless.

tl;dr: Warren's DNA does have Native American segments; Trump was wrong; he bet $1m; he denies having done so. I'd say the chances of him honouring his word are about the same as me being half Cherokee.

David Davis admits *there aren't any*. 43 years in, *there aren't any*, said the Brexit minister of the day. That isn't a principle, it's pointless dogmatism.

As for landfill laws, if there's a clause in that which bans weekly collections, again, show me the UK law. I get, on average, 2 bin collections a week, and what goes to landfill is greatly reduced. That's a benefit, not an imposition. Your case seems weak.

"Motor insurance for your lawnmower". Classic Europhobe Project Fear, on a par with the "bendy bananas" rubbish. Can you show me that on the UK statue books, or cite a single UK prosecution?

"Political control of every aspect of our lives"... the bloke who used to be responsible for Brexit negotiations doesn't seem to share your view.

This "unelected, unaccountable" argument has no credibility. - European Parliament: 100% elected - Council of Ministers: 100% elected representatives - European Commission: cannot take office unless approved by Council of Ministers. 1/2

There is, one has to say, more than a grain of truth in this characterisation, if I may say so without immodesty.
