David Frost self isolates due to Corona. They'll have to find someone else to fail to make progress on a trade deal for a while.

From that video you might conclude that Martin was a simpleton, but he's not - he's just a rather shrewd businessman with a populist streak addressing simpletons with a very simple message.
He was smart enough to recognise the threat to his supply chain a few months ago when he stopped selling all EU wines in favour of rival products from Australia and elsewhere, while somehow managing to portray it as an act of patriotism and solidarity with the Commonwealth.
For multi-millionaire businessmen like Martin the real antipathy towards the EU is based upon the way it imposes workers' and consumer protections which ensure that his employees and customers get a fair deal at the expense of his bottom line. Sadly there are millions of people in Britain who will fall victim to the bonfire of EU protections that will follow Brexit, who fail to understand that.
I hope that bastard invites the far right, racists,and fascists, into his pubs for even cheaper slop during the coronavirus crisis.....they would all get along so well up close and personal together.

The closing down of business in Britain is going to have terrible consequences there, and even worse consequences here.
But nobody should be surprised at that - few of us have forgotten reports of the British PM responding "Fúck business!" last year when British business representatives raised concerns about Brexit.

No. I don’t actually. Can you substantiate any of this?


I have to say that I am surprised to have to do this for someone that is posting on a Political Website and on a Brexit Thread.

All of this is well known so I will make allowances that you must be a novice and not yet educated on political matters. Educating those, such as yourselves is a service that one must be prepared for I suppose.

Those are words , look at their actions today. The range of supports for business and their employees announced today by the UK chancellor will dwarf anything our Government will do for our business's.

The risk to health posed by covid-19 is no greater than the risk from other flu viruses. Yet in previous years when thousands died of flu we all kept on going about our daily business.
So what's different now? Why have such draconian restrictions been imposed across entire countries, and most importantly, who benefits from it?
Taking the UK, and following the follow the money principle, it is not an exaggeration to point out that the UK has just undergone a silent bloodless coup in which millions of people have just been told by the new Chancellor to stop work and take their money instead as a loan from the government. The Chancellor (Mr Sunak) is a Goldman Sachs old boy so it's not hard to guess who'll be making the loans. Making billions of pounds in loans and getting them underwritten by the government is every bankers dream come true, Britons thought they were getting a tory government but instead got Goldman Sachs. The vampire squid is now inside Downing Street.

I don’t see where it says this demographic is acting crassly in relation to CV-19.

Now you expect me to hold your hand through all the examples in Britain where young people are behaving carelessly / recklessly etc re; Socialising, going to pubs , ignoring social distancing.

For some one posting on a political website you know nothing of politics or current affairs pertaining to politics.

A snowflake that needs their hand held through everything.

Agreed. Young people seem weak of responsibility , character and political knowledge. Perhaps after this, consideration will have to be made to increase the voting age to 30 or more.

Young people are not showing themselves worthy of the Vote at this stage.

The young aren't doing anything unexpected. They are all invulnerable at that age.

Besides, it is better if they group together as much as possible. It will make it easier to sell the survivors to the Slavers later. Sure they'll probably enjoy seeing a bit of the world.

It is a small island. This has been a party political broadcast brought to you by Fianna Fail.

Lol.

As inevitable as shelving Wimbledon, the FT reports that both EU and U.K. negotiators expect an extension of the transition into 2021. One explains that the U.K. does not have the ‘bandwidth’ to cope with a [horrendous] coronavirus epidemic and a [ self-inflicted] no-deal outcome ( still it’s chief negotiating strategy) at the same time.

Comment: This is the worst time to Brexit in 102 years, but worse for who?
