    Yeah, more and more people are prepping for the post-Brexit post-meat future that awaits this country...

    But they said they'd be 100% unemployment, starvation and death in 2017 and 2018, how come everyone has so much money to spend?
    As reported, this is a one month 'blip' and in this sector volatility month on month should not be used to infer the state of the market overall. Estate agents are giving profit warnings, closing down (we've lost 2 local agents since Christmas), very little sales. The expectation is still a very small increase in property prices during 2019. Until Brexit is sorted nothing will change.

    Nice try, but no, you're wrong, Brexit IS still having a major impact on the property market

    Experts have said Scotland's economy could be boosted by £4.5bn with a rural university says Experts have said Scotland's economy could be boosted by £4.5bn with a rural university.
    Is the EU stopping him from builing a university now?

    He also gives the example of Norway being a country that benifis, which happens to be in the single market (EFTA) and has freem movement of people.

    It's the BBC using cut and paste from press realeases rather than asking questions.
    Something I’m getting really fed up hearing about is ‘delivering’ Brexit. It is no such thing. When I receive something from Amazon I get it delivered to my door. When I give up something, like my domestic waste, freedom of movement, or membership of the world’s largest trading bloc, someone takes it away. They don’t deliver anything.

    I have the translation.

    Harry: I didn't say "bloodycoppah", I said "lovelycoppah, bloodycoppah".
    Copper: I resent that even more. Do you spell bloodycoppah with a circumflex?

    Apparently this refers to the Hague spelling of Kankah. Which means cancer - what I've translated as "bloodycoppah" is actually "cancercopper". The T-shirt says "say it with disease". In the Hague, they swear with diseases.

    So now when you want to insult Erikur, you can just call him mumps or something.

    It's in a very exaggerated The Hague accent

    The guy on the left
    I didn't say cancer cop
    I said honeybunny
    cancercop


    Cop:
    That's even worse
    Do you write that with an â?

    (PS the Dutch like to swear using diseases like cancer, plague, typhoid, tuberculosis, etc in front of a noun such as man, woman, mess so that's why he says cancercop)

    Feck me, that in itself is enough to cut ties with Europe.
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.
