Reunification not subordination.

But if you're proposing taking the former colonies back under the wing of the UK (which certainly is an idea that has some merits), why should it be subordinate to the US President? As the senior partner, you could call it, shouldn't the UK have authority over the US?

NO. Iran responds like for like. They detain our ship because we detained theirs. 

At the moment, we release theirs and they release ours. Tensions eased. And we have said we will release theirs provided it doesn't go to Syria. 

We go bombing Iran and they'll start killing our people in Iraq. 

At any rate, this isn't the thread for it.

Sorry everyone but the volatile oil prices due to this Iranian War means we have to extend Article 50.

Secretly - everyone knows war is an election winner so Boris then goes for General Election.

Incorrect, the UK was upholding EU sanctions against Iran. when the Iranian tanker anchored in British waters.

33% of our LNG comes through that part of the world, the freedom of navigation of British vessels is being contested. it could have a major impact on our energy supplies.

Russia and its supply, the UK has long standing contracts with allies in the region for the supply of GAS. why should we cancel those contracts at a great financial loss because of Iran's actions.

Britain was just carrying out it's international responsibility, should the UK be bothered if Iran fuels Assad's Syrian army? Iran are playing a very dangerous game, Britain will now join American sanctions of Iran and encourage the rest of Europe to do the same, everyone has to use these international waters, Iran is very hungry next month it will be starving.

I like Barnier's tweet. Desperate for the Withdrawal agreement to be signed. The same Withdrawal Agreement that only a country defeated in war would sign and as been defeated massively in the UK parliament 3 times. It's been said by Barnier that the British negotiators Olly Robbins etal never once mentioned the word leaving. I'm sure Boris will.

well we've only gone and signed another trade agreement. this time with Central-America. 

I was told no-one will want to trade with the UK if it leaves the EU.

The UK has trade agreements with: (to enter into force on leaving the EU)

  • Andean countries
  • CARIFORUM trade bloc
  • Central America
  • Chile
  • Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA) trade bloc 
  • Faroe Islands
  • Iceland and Norway
  • Israel
  • Liechtenstein
  • Pacific states
  • Palestinian Authority
  • South Korea
  • Mexico
  • Switzerland
  • South Africa
  • The countries covered by the UK-Andean countries trade agreement are:
  • Colombia
  • Ecuador
  • Peru
  • Brazil
  • The countries covered by the UK-CARIFORUM economic partnership agreement are:
  • Antigua and Barbuda
  • The Commonwealth of the Bahamas
  • Barbados
  • Belize
  • The Commonwealth of Dominica
  • The Dominican Republic
  • Grenada
  • The Republic of Guyana
  • Jamaica
  • Saint Christopher and Nevis
  • Saint Lucia
  • Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
  • The Republic of Suriname
  • The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago
  • The Commonwealth of the Bahamas and The Republic of Suriname
  • The countries covered by the UK-Central America trade agreement are:
  • Costa Rica
  • El Salvador
  • Guatemala
  • Honduras
  • Nicaragua
  • Panama
  • The countries which will be covered by the ESA-UK economic partnership agreement are: 
  • Madagascar
  • Mauritius 
  • Seychelles 
  • Zimbabwe
  • Madagascar is approved in principle and expected to sign shortly
  • The countries which will be covered by the UK-Pacific economic partnership agreement are:
  • Papua New Guinea
  • Fiji
  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • United States
  •  

Add Canada & Japan and I'd call that a home run. Countries we have no trade deal with at present but could enter into talks with China & India. 

Do the EU members want to lose their UK market share to other countries from around the world? well, lobby your Govt. because as we've seen the EU doesn't operate in the interest of ALL its members, just ask Ireland.

Need to get a new Royal Yacht, the amount of trade deals struck by the Queen and trade envoys was mind blowing, it offered a private secure and trusted place away from the media and cameras and full hospitality of a state visit at sea.

Oh, now you're worried for the well-being of the refugees? 

Judging by the number of times you've expressed you're scared ****less of refugees, you should be thanking our police for pushing them back. 

 

Seriously now, yes, force is being used occasionally. No one's happy about that.

These people 'only' want to go through Croatia, they often desperately explain that when caught illegally crossing the border, and our police knows that, but the police is ordered not to let them through.    

Those rare ones who want to ask for asylum in Croatia are accepted. 

In other words, what are you moaning about now? You were having nervous breakdowns when we let Syrians through, now you're upset we're not letting any more refugees through?

What do you want then? Always the opposite of that, what is happening?
