    So you place the economics above the ethics. I don't. The gap won't be bridged.

    Good luck finding ethics and morality when negotiating a trade deal with the US or China, it will be “sign here or fvck off”, as regards anthropology I am not aware of Morris dancing, monty python, the Beatles or any other way of life that has been banned from Brussels, any examples? and as far as democracy goes Britain seems to being led a merry dance into a war with Iran by the US, so much for taking back control.

    News Flash: Raaab has cracked the problem “people are bored with pessimism”. Remember his “vim and vigour” he injected into negotiations?
    Arrant nonsense. It’s about as credible as your poor African farmer riff. Though maybe it’s a question of how low economics would have to go to get under your ethics.

    Not really. My ethics include being, and contributing to, part of a greater whole, and a wider community. The economics has always been secondary, and mainly a concern for the plight of those who will be hit hard. That’s ethics too, come to think of it.

    Your ethics stem from an unshakable belief in the incurable rot at the core of the EU. Not sharing that belief is where we differ, and it’s a tad arrogant to claim that you have the monopoly on ethics.

    I think you might have missed my point, Russell.

    Decameron, I've handed around a couple of trays of likes, although some were left behind in part 24.

    I even tried to like myself, but it just won't happen.

    Was that the 16% tariff on african oranges, a tax on the poor, to our federal masters.

    And the verdict from the leaders of the other parties from the BBC? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/uk-politics-49073992

    Tariffs are a tax on the poor in Africa and Europe. How does that square with your ethics.

    I’m going to award you two more. I’m liking your sense of humour ( and your dogs). My new maxim is “hate Brexit, love the Brexiteer”. Do you break bread with Steve Baker btw?

    Well, when the greatbrittishhousewife gets her tariff free food from thepoorafricanfarmer, farmer Giles is going to be applauding her sensible buying choices. On the subject of the poor African farmer- tell us what your position is on the UK foreign aid budget. Take as much paper as you need.

    I claim no monopoly.

    Is the democratic vaccum throughout the EU institutions ethical? Is the corruption, the cronyism and the nepotism ethical? Is the grandstanding by, and the special tax and benefit breaks for, the Brussels 'élite' ethical? Is the cosying up to the global corporations ethical? Is the 3% and their 12% of useful idiots deployed to terrify or numb into submission the 40% ethical? Is the building of an armed empire without the consent of the people ethical? Is the built-in iniquity of the Euro in favour of German industry and illegal surplus ethical? The special dispensation given to France and Germany on the matter of deficits and surpluses? The evisceration of Greece, the technocratic takeover of Italy & Spain, the pregnant silence over Catalonia, the hounding of France and Ireland, and now of the UK? Are the razor-wire and the armed guards all around the EU's east and south-facing landward and seaward borders ethical?

    No, never met him, and its is just possible that his register of interests is ugly.

    Now tell me about your view of the uk foreign aid budget or is that not one of your preferred talking points?

    I’d long suspected godlessness. It’s the product of your education. There is time though, I hope you’ll not pass the opportunity over.

    Well that is not true is it? There has been a deal on the table for months.

    Cav,

    He said leaving deal.

    The only other deal is May’s deal and one of the reasons May’s deal has been so decisively kicked out more than once is the belief of a significant number of MPs that it is not a leave deal, rather it is a keep us tied to the EU forever deal.
