    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    £1.5 billion, please.

    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    Definitely, if the rumours are true that there might be another half a dozen about to jump ship bang goes May's majority.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    True it will take a hit but the hit will be proportionally much smaller than the UK. The Netherlands is having to restructure it's trade with one country where as we'll be restructuring with the other 27 members and the 40+ countries we trade with on the existing EU negotiated arrangements. It does appear that Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands have far more advanced no-deal planning than the UK. We're all hoping for Chris Grayling to deliver...

    They are screwed. If they left with a larger group of Labour MP's and a number of Tories, formed a new party with policies before announcing this they might stand a chance although the SDLP didn't survive. Aren't they really Liberal Democrats? Hasn't anyone told them?

    Shouldn't they all really be triggering a bi-election here as they've all jumped ship rather than hiding behind the 'you voted for an individual' or 'national emergency'?

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    I watched a fair amount of it too, as Peston stated she's clearly running the clock down to protect her party above all else even if it leads to a disastrous outcome for the country. I think we're nailed on for a no-deal exit simply because the meaningful vote is likely to occur around the 24th March. Any amendable vote prior to then is non-binding. If her deal is rejected there won't be enough time for parliament and the EU to do anything else and at the that point as far as the EU is concerned what's the point of delaying? She's even now trying to bypass the 21 day rule for the withdrawal bill. The only consolation is that if Project Fear lives up to being true she may have saved her beloved party but she'll be out of office fairly quickly and the country won't forgive the tories for a very long time irrespective of which way they voted in the referendum.

    Exactly so we can hand even more control back to the EU and then to China, US, India, Japan and South Korea for a start as we desperately seek trade deals to plug a collapsing economy.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    So those 'easy' trade deals that will be ready just minutes after we leave aren't looking quite so easy with Japan and South Korea wanting to renegotiate from scratch rather than just rolling over deals with the EU. Funny that, must be surprising for Dr Fox to learn that countries don't want to offer the same terms to a market of 65 million that they'd offer a market of 440 million?

    Bournemouth (H) 9/2/19 - The Match Thread

    So true, particularly in tandem with Fabinho, Keita looks a different player as well. It's a really nicely balanced midfield.

    Bournemouth (H) 9/2/19 - The Match Thread

    I can't get too worked up at the moment, we've had a largely injury driven blip which has involved losing to City and drawing a couple of games. Win at the weekend, get a few first team regulars back and we'll be fine. City this season have a capability of losing every few games and will most likely continue to do so. The top two plus Spurs will drop points during the run in. It's entirely possible we'll be 6 points ahead of City by the end of the weekend.

    Is that a euphemism?

    West Ham (A) 4/2/19 - Match Thread

    It's certainly rolling the dice, let's hope he's shown something in training?

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    Probably the same response as the leading Brexiteer's have given to the news from Nissan today, silence. Only 1.7 million jobs dependent upon foreign owned companies with significant trade with the EU apparently. Nice to see Liam Fox rowing back on his previous brexit statements, apparently a no deal brexit will be 'survivable' and falling back on WTO rules isn't such a good idea after all.
  14. You should think about doing yourself, it's really easy and the PPI companies are charging huge commission rates for basically sending a form off that you can do yourself. There isn't actually any 'investigating' involved. You just write to the financial organisation requesting your payment record and then follow it up with a complaint to the financial ombudsman. I claimed against the RBS and Barclays who had both been adding an undisclosed PPI charge to my credit cards monthly fee. It turned out they'd also ticked the PPI box after I'd made my application on my behalf without asking. RBS coughed up 2.5k up front, Barclays stalled until it went all the way to the ombudsman and then caved in as soon as they were contacted by them, offered 6k which I accepted.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    As opposed to the largest free trading block in the world, 440 million against 65 million people. 44% of the value of our trade is with the EU as against around 8% for them. The argument that they need us more than we need them has been trotted out for the last three years. It hasn't happened so far with less than 70 days to go and two years negotiating behind us. If we're tough enough to don our WW2 tin hats and face down the consequences of no-deal then why isn't Germany or France given that the impact however negative will be proportionately much smaller? Basically the nostalgic Brexiteer view is that they're cheese eating surrender monkey's who will wilt at the first sign of it being shoved up em. This is all have our cake and eat again. Brexiteer's basically want unrestricted access to the single market without any constraints or making any contribution whilst being free to trade on our own terms and regulations with the rest of the world, all the time our main threat being to shoot ourselves in the head and inflict a shoulder wound on the EU if they fail to agree.
