    It was dreadful. It might not have been so bad if she had actually said anything.

    Another PM wants to be big on the world stage. Does not give a f**k about UK citizens.

    FFS Twice as much as France which is the closest economy in terms of size and pop.
    Imagine what the standard of living would be if people didn't borrow.
    It's not going to end well, hence the BofE's warning.
    As our propaganda tells us, we're always in front when it comes to Europe

    By the way thanks SAS, that's a very useful presentation

    The most useful thing he's ever presented was one which could be flushed away at the first attempt.

    No. 2 is much worse.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
