We all know that if the UK and the US do a proper trade deal... London will consume New York within a decade.

If (when) there is a contraction opinion will turn on a six pence.

Voters are fickle.

The next general election will be a battle between a party that wilfully vandalised the economy v’s communism-lite.

Foreign direct investment into the U.K. has gone from

+£80bn/yr
to
-£60bn/yr

That £140bn swing is why our currency has collapsed, the economy is already being drained of capital and liquidity. It’s just still highly financialised and hasn’t spilled into the “real” economy yet.

Men and women do have different neurology and different endocrinology.

But different does not preclude being equal. It is possible to be different and equivalent.

And it is wrong to expect women and men to be identical. There are clearly some major differences.

That’s a rather pathetic excuse in any circumstance, but when the entire balance of Parliament rests on a razor thin majority it is absurd not to contest the seat with maximum vigour.

Immediately refielding a disgraced candidate is an interesting terrible decision.

Even if he wins it is damaging to the brand.

Brilliant. The only question is whether it will be before or after Steve Bannon gets his wall Domminic Cummings get his Brexit.

Except I am English.

You did co-operate and you confirmed my can’t see the wood for the trees theory.

Thanks,

Nationalism is exactly the same affliction whether it be Scottish, Irish or English.

Move the capital city to Edinburgh and the Scots and English nationals would just swap their crib sheets.

By your reasoning the English nationals would then be relegated to “technically” British.

To me personally it would make no difference. All of these people are British whether they like it or not. Britishness is binary and it’s down to your passport holder status.

There are also many people claiming to be British, who are “technically” correct, but who identify themselves as English.

Such people are easily identifiable as they aren’t but afraid to show generalised disdain towards people in other geographical subsets of the U.K.

I’m sure these technically-Brits-but-actually-English are an accidental omission on your part, as they are probably the largest such group?

Or is this a case of missing the woods for all the trees?
