Nah. We're winning mate! We've shown those EU Johnny Foreigners whose boss and as we speak a new trade deal is being finalised with the might of our favourite moderate Middle Easten dictatorship of Turkey.

Yep, from next year you will once again be able to buy cheap tumble driers that burn your house down. Yipeee!

Progress!

😂😂 This is interesting... Could the EU get Britain to potentially take refugees for financial passporting access......... 😂 That would definitely be a Turkey plus agreement 👍👍🙏👀🚶.

It is absurd how they are trying to spin more bureaucracy, red tape and form filling as a positive thing.

The Conservatives and those who voted for them really do love big bloated government.

Anythings possible. But just like when we were in the EU, our elected government had to agree first.

Still I am really excited at the prospect of doing new deals with the likes of Turkey and Lebanon now we have lost free access to the single biggest market in the world.

Still, it could be worse. We could be doing a deal that brings chlorinated chicken and GM hormone beef to our shores... oh wait!

Is that even a thing or is it on the same shelf as Goulash, fermented cabbage and other regional, local delicacies that are only appreciated by those who were force fed them from birth because they evoke childhood nostalgia?

Oh yeah definitely, Lebanese has a somewhat more limited market but a nice Chateaux Ksara can happily rival some of the best Clarets

I'm not sure America would be such a willing partner to drop tariffs and really create a free trade area, as much as the government expects.... Just my American sense tells me America would be looking for a very beneficial deal instead... Very much so what it sees as a weak partner... The US...UK bullying has been going on since the Suez Canal in the 1950s... 😂 I don't think that exertion of power ends just because the UK comes asking alone and disconnected from it's nearest neighbours.

The US will likely give the UK a deal that involves signing up to alot of other stuff it may not want.

Aye i suspect you're right. But aside from farm dumping and getting their fingers into the NHS tenders system i imagine the rest could be relatively easily to haggle out.
American wine could be interesting, i hear they do make some great ones. Unfortunately the stuff they sell at the moment i would sooner drink piss than that sugary grape juice :lol:

Is Boris encouraging workers to return to the office really just because commercial land and property owners fear their incomes look under threat?

Home-working is safer from a Covid-perspective and general health, helps pollution and the London housing shortage.

I'm hoping i convince my University to let me come pick up my degree now. 😂 So this comes at a very opportune time out of self interest.

But in all reality it's just more confusing guidance. Even if people are forced to the office... You can't make them more risky. They won't just revert back to normal spending alone out of fears for their job's.

Inuit feel the same about whale blubber burried in the ground and left to rot for 6 months! 😂😂

I'm sure you are right. But if you ask me, wine is either drinkable or not. All the mystic around wine is marketing hype if you ask me. It's only ferminted grape juice after all!

Disgusting.
Mmm too a point you're right but theres also a vast difference in quality, like the acidic paint stripper you get for $5 a bottle vs. a lovely Pinot Noir for $20
... i may or may not have a love of wine
