    Pretentious. Artificial. But, then, nearly all of our training venues were, average C&W attendee on about $80,000 USD or better, back at the end of the 1980's, dawn of the 1990's.

    Once, I had to book a twin, pilots plus cabin attendant to haul a couple of main-board Directors out of an in-the-woods Pennsyltucky venue to make a flight back to Hong Kong.

    Another one I borrowed a plane and flew myself back and forth every night for having to be in two places at once, financial stuff afoot..

    Just minutes ago looked it up. Rhinefield House Hotel is now earning about the sorriest set of reviews I've seen in a while.

    Guess the best I can hope for, next I pass by "home", is to find that pizza, fish n' chips, Leicester Square / Covent Garden, pub-grub in Westminster, or a curry in Richmond, Isleworth / Hounslow are still tasty as ever.

    Even if the prices are insane by rest-of-the-world's metrics...



    Blighty has become a b***y-awful place to AFFORD. That much is not new by easily 30 years.

    Mind - applies to the so-called "wealthier" members of the EU even more so.

    Sumthin's amiss, yah find yerself basing off Zurich, Luzerne, Brientz, 'coz Switzerand has gone cheaper. Or at least one actually GETS whatever it was as was paid-for.

    Interesting in that Russia and Putin have the same objective.

    Do any Brits in here know who they intend voting for? The system where "the winner takes all" in each constituency makes it almost impossible to get a fair result that really represents what a majority of voters want.

    Brexit: These four charts show how the UK election could play out

    I've got a feeling even if the parties in favour of Brexit get a majority it'll be back to square one deciding if it's with or without a deal. This could (should?) have been added to the voting choices if for no other reason than to see what a majority did want.

    A vote took place in 2011 on whether to use the first past the post system,as now, or to change to proportional representation. This was a country wide vote in which all could take part. 68% voted against change.
    I've got a feeling that whichever way the vote goes will be an internal thing,IE, interference or thoughts from outside the UK will not be sought.

    Probably the reason most voted to keep things "as is" is because of habit. Even a small minority becomes a majority depending on how votes are given in the constituencies.

    I don't get why you and many others don't get what the Brexit problem is. The "leave" won but what was forgotten (or left out) was how to leave. Some want without a deal, others don't. What would be the majority vote between those two options?

    Personally I've long since stopped caring which option you choose and until you (Brits) get it figured out by yourselves you're a waste of time.

    How do you know that I don't get what you perceive to be the Brexit problem is? I have never stated what my thoughts are on this and do not intend to.
    Even after you get this figured out you are a waste of time.

    NO IT FUCKIN WASN'T!!!!!
    For the eleventy billionth time, the vote was to leave. To go. To get off the gravy train. To take back control of the UK laws, borders, fisheries. To stop pumping billions into the EU gravy train project.
    THAT was the vote.

    Subsequently (this means AFTERWARDS) the monkeys have created project fear and the country has gone into a tailspin, helped of course by the monkeys in parliament and the media creating the shit we now have.

    You keep regurgitating this line.

    I'm surprised you're allowed to have a computer in your padded cell

    You're delusional. If the vote was a simple as you think then what's the problem? Even in PM you Brits don't agree.

    I'll STFU about Brexit the day y'all get your act together and figure out what you want to do. I don't expect the coming election to solve anything anyway.

    A. Because we voted differently
    B. Yes it will - more paralysis

    Who are the monkeys?
    A. Those that buy newspapers?
    B. The politicians in parliament?
    C. Those that voted the politicians in?

    You might be living in the wrong country.

    I agree. The vote was to leave or to stay. It was not to leave with a package, or to leave on Saturday or Monday after 12pm, or to leave on a rainy Thursday. This sounds like an American shyster lawyer in court. If things were forgotten or left out - to bad. It was TO LEAVE! Period! So now LEAVE!!! GET OUT!!!May be than the remaining countries can move on.
    You made your choice.

    "Personally" we are about as equally divided as we were on Brexit as to whether the world would be a less innanely repetitious and artificially contentious place if you swallowed your tongue... or just your keyboard.

    My vote is for the keyboard. Crosswise. En Bloc, of course. Sharper edges, y'see.

    You'd have to know "Brexit". Or even just world-class boring lego-trolls?

    If it had been that simple there wouldn't be any problem.

    Leaving the EU has consequences and repercussions for both parties. Some things just can't be swept under the rug. Reminds me of a joke.

    3 men (a Frenchman, an Englishman and a Scot) were invited to a party where they had to take something. The Frenchman took wine, the Englishman cheese and the Scot his brother.

    Inflicted an enduring PITA of a boring lego-troll onto my otherwise happy screen work for yah?

    I'm only able to remain an optimists off being aware It could have been WORSE.

    Most grateful you weren't born twins or triplets - imagining legos required with play.
