 How's a Romanian (EU) wine going to get here ? Or Italian Prosecco, or Spanish Riocha? I don't know, but someone here might - what are WTO tarrifs on this stuff? or is it just Olde English "Longbow" humour and waving 2 fingers ?

Between 8 and 12 pence per bottle depending on ABV of the wine. Hardly the doomsday scenario portrayed by the press 

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Being realistic, we all know that that 8 or 12 pence per bottle will be £2 or£3 per bottle extra coming out of your wallet

How so? It's a competitive market so if the price rises significantly above the tariff, that is profiteering and will just make the non EU wines look better value. So who wins?

Anyway looks like we have a deal. The early indications are it's not horrendous. So around Easter looking forward to winding up all those remoaner doomsayers about how the world hasn't stopped.

Assuming of course (and to ensure we remain on topic) that the COVID vaccine does not cause us to mutate into gormless brain dead cannibal Zombies as per so many Hollywood/Streaming productions. The good news is Brad Pitt still lives and will save us.

I see that “gob almighty” Anneliese Dodds has already told us how bad the deal is because it is too “thin” and will be detrimental to our GDP.

How come she’s seen the full text then before anyone else? Or is she the last of the Corbynites on the Labour front bench who just has to criticise everything Tory, as she has done so with the furlough payments etc.

This Labour Party have really learned the art of growing feet since the number of times they shoot themselves in the foot is beyond belief. Too thick to realise the long term damage that has been done to their Party over the past 10 years.

Been to aldi this morning to pick up some odds and sods for xmas. Mainly snacks and stuff as the missus likes all to eat healthy - and me and the kids love naughty stuff.

According to the bbc I was heading to shelves much like those found in third world countries. However imagine my surprise when I came out with a turkey ( We’ve got beef and lamb already so weren’t bothered ) fillet steaks, salad, booze, nuts etc etc - there was nothing I couldn’t buy. Even bog roll was available. 
 
No long queues to get in - car park 1/3 full at most.

I’m sure however the shelves will be empty in late jan 🤭🤪🙄

Someond should stuff a sweaty sock in her mouth. Then at least something of substance could come out of it.

Does that mean we can now officially tell Macron to f@@k off?

As individuals we may have friends who are from/ reside in mainland Europe, but I think politically the European governments should be kept closer than friends (you all know who we keep closer than friends according to The Godfather).

Sturgeon not happy

 

No change there then!
Maybe she could spend a few hours practising putting on face masks rather than whinging about everything that didn’t suit her desire for “Scotsit”

Drakeford also now showing his true colours, an out and out Welsh Nationalist hiding behind the Welsh Labour Party
