    There is also the possibility that Germany might overtake us in the fully vaccinated number of people.

    They're now at 5.19m and the UK is at 8.19m.

    Given our headstart they're going quite well.

    We’re still doing it faster, just look at the percentage increase over the last month.

    Not sure who "we" are, but numbers of people, like on Our World in Data, are only any use for comparison when comparing countries of the exact same population and access to vaccinations.

    This is why the actual vote should not have been a simple yes or no.

    As has been seen, some people do take what they hear at face value and don't do research.

    Don't forget that leave MP's were saying that they wanted to stay in the single market at the time.

    Yeah it's that 2nd does that may pass ours but that's cause they're not waiting 12 weeks.

    These are great little bikes, it's a real shame they're struggling with Brexit issues.

    UK and I know. I filtered the above to percentage population increase.

    It’s good European countries now seem to be getting there, it’s unfortunate it has been mishandled by so many that have forced this to be so critical though.

    ‘“The English are feral, and they were fed for years and years off, if you stubbed your toe you got disability living allowance for the rest of your life … The English need to be retrained that, to feed your family, if you have to go and scrub toilets … that’s what you do,” said one female from the west Midlands.

    I could close my eyes and literally hear the exact same words of a pal of mine who with no sense of self awareness lives in £1m five bedroom house his dad bought him.

    I read the UK has signed trade deal with Australia, not as good as all the trade lost so far

    but more UK fisherman are shocked and OUTRAGED

    Brackan Pearce, 28, is restocking his trawler. He travelled up the Thames as part of a flotilla of fishing boats demanding control of British waters during the referendum campaign in 2016. Now he feels betrayed. “They lied to us. They’ve used us to get Brexit. Without the boats going up the Thames, Brexit would never have happened,” he says from the deck of his boat.

    The probably will, sadly. As dumb (and desperate) as these people were to believe the Tories, I still have a modicum of sympathy for them. The Tory councillor's (literally a car salesman) mealy-mouthed statement is typical:
    The village’s current Conservative councillor, Roger Harding, who is not standing again, also believes the fishers’ frustrations may cost his party. “They will lose votes over it,” he says in the gloomy office of the car showroom he owns near the port. “In a way, the fishermen were expecting something that couldn’t be delivered, but certainly there is unhappiness. They will be showing their discontent.”
    He's essentially saying 'these idiot fisherman believed our lies and now they're pissed off, but we won so fuck 'em.'

    Things continue to look PRETTY GOOD.

    Sales of milk and cream to the EU are down an extraordinary 96 per cent – and chicken and beef by almost 80 per cent – because of Brexit, new figures show.

    Overall, the trade barriers erected in Boris Johnson’s deal have cost exporters more than £1.1bn since the start of the year, The Food and Drink Federation says.

    The organisation said it was “essential” that the UK urgently restarts talks with the EU to resolve the crisis – something the prime minister has so far refused to do.

    Downing Street has, so far, rebuffed industry calls to reopen negotiations with Brussels, other than to try to resolve the legal crisis surrounding the Northern Ireland Protocol.
    What exactly do they want him to do?
    Come back to the negotiating table after a deal has been struck to say "we feel we got the short end of the stick, can we talk about it again? I've nothing to offer really."

    My GF's parents are looking forward to getting some Jersey Royal potatoes like they used to taste. They've never tasted the same since the EU meddled apparently.

    Really finding it hard to bite my tongue and keep quiet sometimes...

    It’s because they use cheap fertiliser instead of seaweed to grow them now.

    Tell them to grow their own in seaweed.

    the 2nd tweet is spot on, brexiters don't care. They shout and abuse people when people bring up how bad things have got. In their brains, everything is fine and "everyone is moaning" or "moaning about little hiccups" Also they will never accept they got played like a fiddle (if they are not the rich ones that made money from brexit) they will just triple down on the denial as they just shake and jibber as the losses mount up

    I've said before I wasn't against Brexit or the vote in principle, given what collosal dicks we've been for the past 20 odd years and felt we needed a good telling off, but I personally am yet to see things being "bad", as the pandemic has masked it.

    I reckon it'll be a couple more years before we really feel it. But then I also see that being around the period we start getting new MPs, most likely a new PM and they start doing new negotiations.

    Within the next 20 years, we could see a united Ireland and an independent Scotland, which was unthinkable previously. That's the meat that people will have to chew on.
