    When in doubt always refer to someone by their ethnicity. It's the only way.

    It's the price we pay for being untrustworthy, trade deals with the UK will have little value if we keep pulling out of agreements unilaterally.

    He told the Press Association: ďIím very fond of India myself, Iím a member of the British India all-party group, I have two Indians (tenants) in my flats here in London and thereís nothing racist in it whatsoever.Ē

    Seems legit. You couldn't possibly be racist against people who are paying you thousands of pounds a month!

    Whatís particularly great is that our parliament, tasked as it should be with fixing the broken housing market in London and the South East, is full of flipping landlords in all political parties. It should be illegal, but fat chance of that ever happening.

    An essential component of hard Brexit faith is an absolute refusal to engage with the practical issues of the Irish border and customs. Every time someone points out the very real & serious problems with every alternative to a UK/EU customs union, they get shouted down and called a 'remainer'.

    Even now, I can't quite get my head around the fact that the no10 position genuinely seems to be ignore the noise and 'hope this problem goes away'. It emphatically isn't going to.

    Much brighter people than me have been pointing this out for five years now.

    The No 10 position is 'we can work hard to solve this now, or just lie and deflect when issues do arise, and attack and tear down anyone or any organisation who questions us'.

    The disgusting cunt in charge has become PM using that strategy his whole life (which sadly continues) why change now.

    A few weeks ago I spoke with the team delivering a key digital component to manage food imports and exports. They were just getting started on speccing out the requirements, and have what 7 weeks left to build test and deliver the whole thing, including over Christmas when no one will be around.

    Chillax guys, you worry too much...

    Who cares about those ivory tower fatcats?!?!?!?!?!?

    We'll have all the jam we could ever want.

    Vaguely related, I tried Welsh and Cornish Brie the other day... They were both garbage compared to the French one I had to compare them with. Still, could have just been bad examples.

    Nah, the Welsh and Cornish don't count in the eyes of the swivel eyed loons.

    To be fair there are some exceptional British cheeses, you just have to go to specialists to source them. Nealís Yard do a Brie called Baron Bigod which is every bit as good as a Brie de Meaux. The difference is in France you can get great cheese at any bog standard supermarket in the country

    I saw an interview with a British winemaker promoting his new Beaujolais. I don't doubt that it's perfectly drinkable but he was asked whether it was affordable? He said yes, it is very competitive with supermarket wines at £12 a bottle.

    Therein lies the problem. A typical supermarket wine is actually £6-8 for most people. It's all well and good making British alternatives but if they cost more to produce so you have to charge more, and peoples wages aren't going up, they'll fail or be very niche and not mass market replacements.

    The Government have also decided we don't need the low skilled, low paid workers who actually do things that pick grapes and make the producers viable.

    I'm going to take a guess that he'd only ever stepped into Waitrose or M&S.
