    Sounds fair enough to me, let's go then 59, on that basis there's no need for any more referendums, confirmatory votes or whatever. We leave the EU, and we leave according to Article 50. So if we can't ratify the WA, we leave without one. It really is that simple.
    I don't know what is worse going round in circles and being lost in the Australian outback without water or sunblock, watching paint dry or listening to you two?

    Boris will be our next Prime Minister, we will leave the EU without a deal and Burnley will not be relegated in the 2019/20 EPL season.
    It's all written in the stars.

    You keep listening to us two BT, you might learn how to articulate an argument, how to make a valid point, instead of having to rely on posting dubious, unsourced, childish photos. But I do agree with you on the rest of it, a nice treble at the bookies ?

    I'm just about to travel to Arundel for a week.

    I agree that Emily Maitlis was awful last night and that didn't help.

    But just one point about Boris (and there were lots of stuff I could mention)

    He clearly said that free trade with the EU could continue after Brexit under GATT but this means that both sides would have to agree a deal - which wouldn't happen in the event of a no deal.
    In my opinion he would be the worst of a bad bunch, but he will win.

    It would be entertaining watching him perform as Prime Minister - if it was not our country.

    I am totally able to articulate an argument sinkov, but trying to influence you two is akin to attempting to hold back the incoming tide in Morecambe bay.

    Indeed you are BT, I am in full agreement, which is why I find it so sad that you so often resort to silly photos. You don't need to.

    Lovely part of the world down there 59, is there a race meeting at Goodwood you could get to ? Hopefully the traffic won't make a nightmare of the journey down.

    Boris did seem a bit flakey on the subject of trade, I'm sure he has some vague ideas but he did seem to be bluffing and blustering a bit. In your comment there still seems to be this confusion between a WA and a Trade Deal, not the same thing, and judging by the tripe some of our MPs, both Remain and Leave, come out with, I think even many of our MPs are confused by it.

    One good thing about Boris getting the job, PMs don't run departments, they delegate, as long as he delegates wisely, he/we might just get away with it.

    I presume that's been built to prevent vicious Israelis from straying over the border to attack innocent, peace loving Islamists in Gaza. Or is it Stoops Estate in Burnley, been bricked a few times up there in my working days ?

    But I could be wrong, would you like to articulate just what it is, where it is, and what is it's purpose ? I might be wrong, but I think you can if you want.

    Greetings from a warm and sunny Arundel. My brother in law lives on a bloody big Humber barge on the Arun river and me, Mrs 59-60 and her daughter have come down to do some work on it.

    We will have plenty of time to explore the area though.

    Goodwood races are tomorrow but the ladies are not very keen.

    Good internet connection at our holiday home here but I will be an infrequent poster for the next week.

    But don't worry, I'll put you all right on any outstanding matters of great moment when I return.

    I was watching the toffs get a thorough soaking in the gloom of Royal Ascot yesterday 59, whilst up here it was cracking t'flagstones. Hopefully you avoided it.

    Have you applied for the job of Chuka's bag carrier yet ? It doesn't pay well, but you'll never be off the telly.

    There is always plenty of baggage to carry as a Lib Dem Sinkov but Chuka will have to make his own arrangements.

    Well, it started warm and sunny but it turned windy and chilly with a few drops of rain. A good days work though, I got a lot of red lead paint on - mainly on myself though.

    Luckily, after all these years I managed to get into my bespoke BFC boiler suit which was my 50th birthday present in 2002 and actually featured in a Clarets match program - and is now a slightly different shade of claret.

    There's something therapeutic about painting boats I find 59, a bit like voting for the Brexit Party.

    My therapy is cutting grass, many others find that smoking it works better still!
