    Do or dead in a ditch Johnson demands his exit from Europe on the 31st yet he asks the EU to move their deadline while he uses his considerable personal charm to threaten Varadkar

    A new electric car regains any carbon costs from manufacture within 5 years at the worst estimate.

    Economy is also quite reliant on people buying stuff

    Clap hands emoji. Observation of simple fact seems to be a surprising skill of yours.

    An observation that Bercow and Swinson appear to have overlooked when undermining our prime minister and his negotiators.

    Yep thanks for that, iI am all for electric cars.

    Whilst your in research mode, could you find out and report back what percentage of uk new car sales all electric cars make up?

    The second two sentences are amongst the most sensible things I've seen you write here. I wrote much the same thing a few days (and a few months) ago, and Stephen Bennett came at me like a banshee. Loud silence from him this time, of course.

    The first sentence is the ususal tosh, with the added icing of it contradicting, in the hypocritical sense, the second.

    Current new car sales figures are not relevant. We know that diesel sales are down. All car sales are down, mostly due to Brexit.

    What is relevant is future sales of EVs. They are expected to rise exponentially, especially as the number of charging points, ranges on a single charge increase and charging times decrease.

    Another definition of treason is colluding with the Queen’s enemies or giving them comfort. This is exactly what Johnson, Cummings and their backers are doing.

    The only problem with that is it will be more government and more overhead. Small is beautiful is good but a reduction in Westminster and the lords needs to go with it.

    SteveS1 I heard that, pardon?

    Having no cards is what undermines negotiations, pretending you have just makes it look worse when reality dawns.

    Actually both points are correct and if you disagree with the first, it undermines the second. Had you said anything sensible like it I'm sure Mr Bennett would not have 'come at you' after the smelling salts had kicked in.

    Getting on for two and a half years ago I started a thread that Brexit was a manifestation of English nationalism and more than one former Tory minister has described it as Far Right English Nationalism wrapped in the Union Jack. England would seem to require its independence. The British Union will end before the European one.

    Manufacturing jobs have almost disappeared (about 10% of GDP). Retail and delivery of new products will be in for a hit in the next 20 years. Driverless lorries or a number of lorries with 1 driver; drone delivery of parcels etc. So we don't make products, we don't repair and we don't deliver.

    The penny whistle of parochial ignorance blows again. The Prime Minister of the current minority government is incapable of delivering a parliamentary majority. Remember- Parliament is sovereign, that’s what you voted to take back control of. The leader of one tiny opposition party and the Speaker are incapable themselves of “undermining the prime minister’s negotiations”.

    Bercow should be able to get on the EU gravy train but Swinson is playing a dangerous game undermining the PM. The GE is not far away and there will be a backlash.

    Will the electorate agree with you?

    March of the curtain twitchers. I’m sure Swinson is more concerned about the threats of harm to her and her child she’s received.

    It's also just about the biggest load of nonsense I have ever seen on here. If the government was a government in anything but name then they would simply out vote the opposition. The problem is the government have no majority (in part due to the imbecile some call a PM sacking 21 members of his own party) and hence are sitting ducks and parliament is deadlocked. On top of that Bercow and Swinson are doing exactly the opposite of trying to betray their country meanwhile the right's new hero wants to take us into the economic dark ages to satisfy some notion of colonialism that should have been buried decades ago and because he thinks being English somehow makes him and the rest of the English better than anyone else. Anyone who thinks this deluded bit part dictator is what the country needs is as bad as he is in my book!
