So how does everyone think the Eu will respond to Mays speech yesterday?  Still seems like they want their cake and eat it.

That's the English for you.

The really sad thing is that they will spin it as them being reasonable (perhaps they might even believe it)

Looks like it's a prelude to a walk out.


To answer your question, the EU will respond with dignity.

You'd have thought that it would have started to dawn on them that they don't hold any cards. But it's clear that the penny still hasn't dropped (so to speak). Think the only thing I disagree with is the British courts being answerable to the ECJ. No. Other than that, it's fair game the EU are asking / demanding the UK stump up the cash.

Well I have no idea what she really said, I'm not going to listen to any of the shite that comes out of that stupid bitch's mouth.

I'm not leaving the EU, whatever fuckin pish they come up with.

The Spanish are going to extraordinary lengths to deny the Catalonians a voice. The key question is why?

Why is always the best question of course but this is an affront to the so-called democracy that these western corrupt states peddle. When Cameron pleaded with us to stay with his "UK family", those who were persuaded by him forgot to ask themselves why he was trying so hard? Not only should his insincerity have been obvious to them, they never once engaged any critical thinking whatsoever in advance of voting No.

The Spanish and UK central governments are pursuing the exact same agenda. It appears that the Catalonians are engaging much more advanced critical thinking skills and have much more intelligence and courage than the stupid majority of Scots.

Extraordinary to see the local fire brigade come to the rescue of the "protesters" after they were being fired upon by the Spanish police. Absolutely disgraceful scenes. This will only spawn a more extreme form of tactics from the catalan govt / supporters. Horrible to see. Hope no one is seriously injured. The scenes in Madrid were equally horrifying, but on the other side of the spectrum. People gathering and singing the fascist Spanish anthem whilst giving fascist salutes. Great, good look Spain.

Get out there and break up these bastard nation states.

Freedom for Aberdonia under the EU umberella is the future.

Proper federalism.

A hell of a lot of vested interests to take care of.

Great post. I wish the voters of Scotland had a fucking fraction of the gumption and backbone that the Catalonians have shown.

The countless videos that I've seen from yesterday are a disgrace and Spain should be ashamed. I saw a lot of people peacfully waiting to vote attacked by thug cops. Old people and dogs were also fair game. Fucking cretins.

Catalonia will get it's will. Scotland could learn so much if it weren't for the Stockholm Syndrome.

I will not set foot in Spain again.

That's the police for you, and if it were here, the army dressed up as police.


Doesn't have to be Spain, any power, any army, any Police.

Exactly what the wife and I said yesterday. They never thought about that in Madrid.

Tories invoking the war twice in a day. Grayling describing the repatriation of Monarch customers as "the biggest peace time effort", whilst Hammond says the same about Brexit negotiations. Is this their new "strong and stable", or "hardworking ordinary people" slogan? Seems a bit limited if it is. Fucking weird nevertheless, are they trying to instill some sort of nationalist pride over a shitey airline and a total fuck up of a political decision? Sinister cunts like.

Aye, you know when they start going on about the Dunkirk spirit there’s trouble ahead.

If they announce a royal wedding or anything like then beware.

We also got Dod Osbourne's "northern powerhouse" yesterday. They've not come oot with that een fer a filie.

They're so see through and stupid too. Invoking the northern powerhouse is not an intelligent strategy for a number of reasons: -

It is by it's very nature an acknowledgment of the north/south divide.

Nobody believes it. It's like these two words are designed to make the NE and the NW forget about the chronic lack of investment.

It originally came from a particularly vile and insidious public schoolboy, a man who wouldn't have been invited to make tea at the Liverpool Echo or the Bridlington Gazette, far less become the editor of the biggest regional paper. Print media is dying anyway. The only people who believe in the Tories are obviously sick in the head yet we NE Scots trust them. Mundell and Davidson wouldn't get a job in a fucking factory and yet they're lauded by the establishment.

Brilliant performance by hatchet face the day.

The boy giving her a P45 was class. Plus the way he ripped Boris the cunt.

Her cough was a metaphor for nae cunt wanting to hear anything she had to say.

The letters falling out behind her were too good. That had to be engineered?

The Tory party conference used to be so well choreographed that it squeaked
