For or Against Brexit? This person is certainly not undecided! To see for yourself, go online to Pat Condell's site and download his latest short video.

Why? I really can't see what informed opinion some second rate "comedian"/bigot would add? I'll stick with listening to intelligent experts and leaders in their fields who actually know what they're talking about, thank you.

Well Agent K, you will be delighted to learn that there is no charge for this service!
Why be dogmatic? Was it necessary to describe the speaker as a second rade comedian and bigot? He was a known left winger like yourself. Are you a leader and expert in your field? I'm pleased to say that I'm not and prefer to keep an open mind.

Just stating well known facts, whether you like it or not.

As for me being a known left winger, you couldn't be further from the truth, and yes, I'm a leader and expert in my field, and proud of it.

I keep an open and informed mind, but sometimes, peoples opinions are just not valid or relevant. Would you for example, waste time to consider the hospital cleaners view on brain surgery just to keep an open mind?, or listen to the brain surgeon who knows what they are talking about.

At the risk of incurring your ire I shall again submit my question.

Hi All,
Agent K - I admit I probably came in on the back end of a news discussion about contributors to the growing fund for Notre Dame Cathedral but I could have sworn I heard the phrase EU contribution somewhere ? although I will admit I could be wrong.

Having said the above I have found this article from Reuters, the following quote from Mr Tusk makes me wonder if the EU will be raiding the coffers for a large amount for the rebuild ?

" You will also rebuild your cathedral. From Strasbourg, the French capitol of the European Union, I call on all 28 member states to take part in this task " , I know that France could do it alone, but at stake here is something more than just material help. The burning of the Notre Dame cathedral has again made us aware that we are bound by something more important and more profound than treaties "

Along with UK and Italian voices seems to me that the EU will aid and pat themselves on the back or am I reading to much into this ?

Full article:- http://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-france-notredame-eu/europe-wounded-by-notre-dame-fire-eu-pledges-help-idUKKCN1RS0QM

Also I noted today that the EU is also trying to secure 25% of it's total future budget for climate change according to the BBCi news.

So any leave voters have hang their head in shame for the mess they made with their vote?

So any regrets?

Ah, the thread everyone thought had died.

Nope!

I think you'll find it's actually the remoaner MPs (along with the has been ones such as Blair, Major etc. along with the 'impartial' speaker of the House) who should be hanging their heads in shame, because after all, it is they who are causing the 'mess'!

I mean, why didn't these remoaner MPs vote for Theresa May's (well, I should say the EU's) deal?

It's all very well those who blame the ERG for it not getting through, but in all fairness, you'd expect them not too, but if you were a remoaner MP, I cannot see why you wouldn't pass it, as it was effectively keeping us in the EU!

I mean, if an arch federalist and Europhile like Ken Clarke voted for it, then you do have to wonder why other MPs never did.

But I think we know the answer to that!

Cheers

Paul

I regret the whole shameful affair. The misleading Bus The generated fear of immigrants created and the falsehood about 'getting our country back'. Please read how and why the EU was created, read the details on how its run. Please.

Its too late for that I'm afraid. Views are too firmly entrenched on both sides.

For a number of reasons, I wouldn't be at all surprised if it never happened. For one thing, Boris is busy getting his excuses in. He has also failed to publish anything that might mitigate the Yellowhammer thing, which is now two whole months out of date - if there was better news, one might expect them to tell us...

We will see - at some point there will be a public enquiry. That will be interesting!

BJ,
I'm fully aware of how and why it was set up.

What is now the EU was setup to fight the spread of communism in the west - pure and simple.

(Can you guess which country was behind it, and pushed the UK into joining?)

How ironic then that it models itself on a communist system !

Perhaps that's why Mr Corbyn has (once a fierce critic of it) has since warmed to it!

Cheers

Sorry guys but I am bombarded with Brexit on the TV, radio and papers and hope to avoid hearing any more about it on this site. Is it possible to have aviation related news that is non political?
