    Nothing would make me happier if they ignored me and I'd be more than pleased to return the favour.
    1. The "endless questions and comments" to you, is me trying to discuss things.
    You post all these questions - so many questions - so i'll answer or ask you what you're thinking or getting at.
    BUT you then ignore, so i'll ask you again. And sometimes again for an answer...It's called communicating...
    You post all this stuff to get reaction, but rarely follow-up yourself. But you know that.

    2. Yes, you do make me laugh. Sometimes though, I think you don't mean to make me.

    3. Back to name calling again with the 3 stooges this time then. I've just read what Camscan posted in another forum - very knowledgeable and not a waste of time at all. I expect Tyrone is breathing a big sigh of relief at not being in "our club"...

    4. Lastly - you don't bat an eyelid at disagreeing with someone when they post something.
    After calling me biased about the EU, you still never answered me on your thoughts regarding Verhofstadt speaking at the LibDems conference.
    Unusual for you to have nothing to say.

    And I posted the border crossings to let our friends in the USA (and everywhere else, but it's fair to say the vast majority here are USA) know that you're talking shit.
    Unless you know something I don't that's recent, because crossing from France to Belgium to Germany to Spain has been a drive down a straight bit of road with a sign saying "name of country".

    Gordon, with the best will in the world, you post the way you do to people because you're a bit of a thin skinned, narcissistic twat at times. The good news for you and us is that you don't have a four year lease agreement on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington.

    Of course not. "I'll get them next time" is imprinted within the Scottish DNA!
    That said... NOTHING on earth is tighter with money, than a Welsh Farmer...

    I just read this which underlines London is still the European capital of trading.
    This does make sense because all the investment and job positions advertised last year (more in London than the rest of the EU combined) showed that the city trading was staying. Despite the media bollocks...

    I'm just an observer, but that suggests the UK might have a reputation for stability, a safe haven. At least compared to the EU countries on the continent, whose history since Bismarck has involved either being occupied by, or occupiers of, each other. Just sayin'...

    It is general courtesy by a host nation, to arrange press conferences without attendant demonstrators.
    A cynic could ask how 50 British Remoaners managed to know where Boris was going to give a press conference and be so organised that they had pre-printed placards and a sound system loud enough to overpower the official sound system?

    #10 requested the press conference to be moved inside, but it was repeatedly refused - citing that there weren't big enough rooms, which looking at some photos of the building is nonsense.

    To quote Bill Wirtz (EU politics reporter for France24/Lemonde/Politico/theTimes) -
    The United Kingdom's commitment to peace in Europe gave Luxembourg (my country of origin) its independence, twice in spite of Germany and France, twice in times of war. What happened in Luxembourg today doesn't reflect well on a country that should honour that memory.

    It was an orchestrated stich-up and all that said, it also looked bad form on Boris for not attempting to do the press conference.
    He could have started, then just raised his hands, smiled and walked away if it was too noisy which Laura Kuenssberg (BBC) said it was (below).

    You've obviously never dealt with Yorkshiremen then.

    How true, ..nowt closer to a Yorkshireman's heart than his wallet, ………….and all those I've known (and worked for) wear that statement as a badge of pride.

    I once asked one ''If Yorkshire's so bloody wonderful, why do you keep leaving?'' to which I was told, ''to mek the rest of thee suffer''

    Yep, Yorkshiremen are the only ones I know that wear their " carefulness with money " as a real badge of honour. " If tha does owt for nowt do it for thisen. "

    Translation for our US friends - " If you do anything for nothing do it for yourself ".

    Regards Tyrone.
