UK News, Updates and Discussion

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

i think half the quotas have been sold, and ownership of the rest is highly concentrated

they should just declare all uk waters a marine reserve, for the benefit of the environment
hunting wild animals is backward
Breaking news, captain Birds Eye AKA Bojo the clown has almost sorted the fish issue out, it appears though that he forgot to mention the export ban on seed potatoes 🤣🤣😂, OMG I'm going to miss this comedy sketch when it's all over, Scotland is not amused as it exports 80% of its seed potatoes to the EU,
Looking on the bright side there is nothing wrong with fish fingers and chips

I'm wondering if the Remoaners will ever accept they lost. I know how scathing they would be if the referendum had gone the other way and Brexiteers were still trying to inflict damage after four and a half years!
Amongst the chattering classes, it is taken as a given that everyone in their circle hates Brexit and must do what they can to undermine it. They won't accept that is unpatriotic because they pay homage only to globalism and the EU and to virtue-signalling. They won't accept they are being undemocratic because they contest that the referendum was fair and honest and, anyway, deplorables and geriatrics should not be permitted the same voting rights as them.
End of rant.
I literally can’t tell if you’re serious or if this is meant to be a parody.

It seemed at the first instance, that most of our fellow European countries turned there back's on us, was it really the fear of a new strain to the virus, or was it just the case of the UK leaving the party. What ever the reason it's this time when all the world should put some differences aside and work this out together.
It also may have been "hang on a minute what if the UK's vaccine works".
Always "hope" but never "expect".

Boris Johnson is a national hero.

He has led these negotiations from the front, in the trenches, and has secured a fantastic deal for the UK so we have tariff free and quota free trade without any of those pesky foreigners telling us what to do. And all through a pandemic that was not his fault and which he has led us in the fight against it, again on the front line, in the intensive care unit of St. Thomas' hospital; Churchillian traits if I ever saw them.

We should all be grateful that we have him as our leader.

Merry Christmas everyone!
