Been busy being incredulous over the latest UK incompetence.....

By the way has this been posted here....George Eaton on the views of the EU on Corbyn

Quote:
Barnier was impressed by Corbyn at their October meeting, as were other senior Eurocrats. Adonis said: “What everybody told me is that they had very good meetings with Jeremy. They said he had been very on the ball and came across as being in favour, broadly, of staying in the single market and the customs union. I’ve had that both from people in the European Commission and in the parliament. They liked him. He came across very positively.”


Not that I agree with all the rest of his article but it seems that a Labour-led negotiation would possible lead us to a better place

The stuff about Ireland that PF posted much earlier...

    Either we don't leave the single market and/or the customs union, which can't happen because these thing are a UK government red line
    Or we do leave but we keep NI within, separating it from the rest of the UK and allying it more closely with the Republic, which can't happen because it will never get past the DUP nor past a good bunch of the Conservative and Unionist Party in the commons
    Or we do leave along with NI and reset a hard border with the Republic, which can't happen because it will destroy the Good Friday Agreement.

Choose.

The only one of those I can see our government going for on present form is destroying the Good Friday Agreement.

I agree with this adam.....I have always thought that Ireland was the Phase 1 subject that could not be sorted easily...

Money - relatively easy, although politically not straightforward,a nd could be sorted tomorrow
EU citizens - easy and just needs the Government to stops acting like twats
Ireland - EU external order so needs SM and CU to work properly (my view that Schengen may come into this as well was probably wrong).he SM and the CU so I doubt they think it is up to them to say anything Tories have specifically ruled out the solutions

At the risk of repeating myself - the EU already has a ready made solution to the NI border in the form of the CU/SM so I do not think they feel it is beholden on them to come up with anything else. If the UK cannot accept the EU options then they will need to come up with an acceptable alternative - and I cannot, for the life of me, see what this would look like...

But...but...they have all got so much cash in reserve! Nick Gibb said so it must be true...not the same schools? Of course they are!

We were sometimes underpaid due to miscalculation of amount of savings but only pursued once and even then still a tad wrong.I think the route/method has changed since then.

"The Department for Work and Pensions confirmed it had identified errors in the payment of employment and support allowance (ESA) that could affect 75,000 people who transferred to it from incapacity benefits.

The errors affected people who applied for ESA between 2011-12 and 2014-15 and were identified by the DWP late last year, according to BBC News, which uncovered the error."




A bit bloody late,for some,sadly.
