    Brexit 2019

    From what I remember, our team found hardly any errors in the bank systems - and none showed up retrospectively - but the job had to be done. It cost a phenominal amount of money to run the exercise and the people on the team did quite well financially out of it .... but boy was I glad I ducked that project - it had to be the most boring job in decades.

    Which is a totally relevant, and easily understood constant

    Indeed ... I do like that comparison .... But if it wasn't an education system in the first place we wouldn't need the constant testing Well done them

    I have to disagree.... the biggest problem in education is the addition of a 6-letter word - system. BY making it an education system the authorities have imposed a one size fits all approach on teachers/educators - if you can't pass enough GCSEs and/or A-levels you are a failure in their eyes. There is no (or very little) thought of trying to help who aren't academic achieve anything in schools that are driven by league tables and fear of a poor Ofsted. Well as Camerom said categorically that he would stay to implement the country's decision it would have been fair to expect him to stay - but then he is a politician and we know they are lying when their lips move.

    Apparently she has asked for an extension until 30 June ... but in the letter says that she sees no need for us to participate in the European elections ..... but that will leave us unrepresented in the Euro Parliament (despite whatever we feel about that august body) .... and what would happen if we suddenly decided to revoke Article 50 after the election? I can see why she said that - it would be a little odd to have an election to a body we only 'expect' to be a member of for a few weeks - but maybe she is giving them another stick to beat herself with ?

    As others have commented the drive thru is off the road so the rules don't apply ...... but what if you need to pay a toll using your phone ?

    It should make the Euro Elections a bit more interesting than they usually are

    If it can't be extended, our MPs have three options (as far as I can see)... exit with no deal (already rejected), exit with the negotiated deal (rejected twice), repeal the Brexit law that says we leave on March 29th (which will of necessity lead to withdrawal of the Article 50 submission). Unless someone can see another option.... and the clock is ticking.

    Therein lies the rub though ... it may be that the EU is happy with that agreement but that doesn't mean we have to be happy with it - and clearly parliament won't accept it (yet).

    But haven't they voted to stop a no-deal .... oh and voted to reject the deal which leaves us .... up in the air without a paddle* - so where do we go? The only option they (deliberately?) seem to be leaving us with is an extension to allow/force another referendum - meeting the standard for everyone that goes against the EU grain ... vote again until you get it right. * deliberate mixed metaphor

    I don't trust our government either .... but I trust other people's governments even less. I don't understand why people have this idea that foreign politicians and bureaucrats have any interest in making this a better place for us. They aren't reliant on us for their jobs (well they are to some degree while we are in the EU 'cos we pay their salaries ... if we leave there is a lot less in the pot for them) so you must be saying that they are just being altruistic - but we all know that is complete bull, we have seen the EU at it's absolute worst over the last months - desperate to force the UK to stay so that we can continue supporting them financially, and desperate to force such a bad deal on us that no other country will have the temerity to leave in the future. A little while back I was wavering in my commitment to leave - I naively thought we could improve the EU if we stayed - but fortunately I have seen the light again and realise we need to leave to prove to the world what a corrupt and misguided enterprise the EU has become.

    The cynic in me assumes she did this on purpose knowing the mess that would happen and that after 2+ years of Project Fear etc we'd all breathe a sigh of relief if she pulled out of Brexit altogether

    I guess a lot of us misread or misunderstood Article 50. I assumed (stoopidly) that the 2 year period was to allow us to negotiate the trading relationship after we left, when in fact the 2 year period appears to be there solely to allow the EU to tell us how much we have to pay before they will consider negotiating the trading relationship post-Brexit.
