listening to James Brokenshire on programme it seems the offering is £2bn from 2022-2028. How is that not a massive drop from the current £9bn from 2016-2021?

You: You can't just say "Ban Cars". That's ridiculous! Pontevedra, Spain: We Banned Cars. And it was great.

a few years ago whenever someone suggested a directly elected EU president all someone had to say was ‘president blair’ and it shut down the argument

I spent last night in a room full of tanked up liberals singing "Tony Blair can fuck off and die" to the tune of American Pie

This piece essentially argues that Blair should be leader because all the other options are worse. which is a decent argument... for not setting up a new centrist party

SOLVED: Another source close to Manfred Weber says the notes photographed are actually from an earlier meeting with Sadiq Khan. Khan has already publicly come out for a second referendum and Labour position is a general election, so this makes sense

Given all the indications are that the Government doesn't even have frank conversations about Brexit in the Cabinet, Manfred Weber would be a very interesting person for Theresa May to confide in

Personally I think that if Theresa May had a habit of telling random Euroepan politicians about a secret possibility of a second referendum or general election we would probably know about it already!

Interesting stuff, though one source close to Weber cautions that he had multiple meetings in London today so the notes may not directly relate to the meeting with Theresa May

i wonder to what extent there is causality in the other direction though. given the way the print press has represented the EU for the last few decades
