    Yep.

    Does it literally mean taking your (walking) stick and heading down the road?

    Ireland votes in Sinn Fein and the Boris' reply is to put Trevelyan in charge of international development. At this rate we should be experiencing a Cromwellian invasion by Easter.

    Yes, agree, but I'm talking about the future trading agreement. A "no deal" scenario would horrendous for the UK, but imho wouldn't be great for Ireland either.

    The irony of the Leavers last night thinking this was the end, when it's really just the beginning of the end....
    The "no deal" trade scenario has been renamed by Cummings/Johnson to be called the "Australian ++ deal" and they will get away with this

    I'll have a go in a bit, but I don't want to risk it right now in case the same issue arises as has happened previously when trying to do a bit of forum admin, and a thread disappears entirely. I'll wait till I know the frog has it completely backed up.
