    They love their processes and will be quite happy to work to rule and collect any customs duties from the associated imports if no agreement is struck. Why would you want to deliberately lose money?
    As I say it's all childish and on both sides. These things usually lead to war becoming closer.
    And Scotland didn't vote for brexit either.

    Unfortunately, until independence is granted to Scotland, you are stuck with the majority.

    But how much do they export from those businesses?

    I wasn't specifically referring to exports. Look at the French involvement in utilities and communications for instance. They need the goodwill!

    Sir Ivan Rogers gave a talk at UCL a couple of weeks ago and one of the bits I recall speaks about economic interests, and how they had seemingly disappeared from consideration:


    "Suddenly, you are dealing with a UK elite
    which seems not to be deriving its negotiating positions from any analysis you recognise
    or remember of the UKís vital national economic interests."

    I don’t think they do. Annoy them, and they cut off your phone/electricity.

    Who is going to get upset?

    I just hope that the Government manage to get a deal, but I fear that the bunch of clowns are only in it for their own interests and what makes them and their wealthy pals better off.

    Yes - I'm down to my last 60 bottles of claret, and have no burgandy left whatsoever!
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Just realised my 'speakers are French, do you think I'll have to get a license for them or something?


    Pre-amp was built in Britain, don't know if all the parts are UK though. Power amp is American. CD player Japanese. If I could get a German tuner, an Italian turntable and a Russian something or other I'd have all the major WW2 Axis and Allied powers represented.

    Current Lash Up:

    Technics SLP1200 CD Player * Nelson Pass DCB1 Pre amp / Krell KSA50S Power amp * JM Lab Electra 926 loudspeakers *

    They'd hardly cut their own throats financially by defaulting on contracted services.
