Well, who said humour was dead?

Britain will seek to boost trade links with African Commonwealth nations this week in a move described by Whitehall officials as “empire 2.0”.
Ministers aim to build

The empire is gone they really really need to let the pretense go, it would be far better for all our sakes.

They actually believe that they can wrap up the UK's exit from the EU in two years or they wouldn't be wasting resources on this. :shock:

What about South Dublin?

Oh yeah, it's only part of England in their own heads.

Apparently Celtic Tiger 2.0 is on the way as well... God help us all... in both cases...

It's probably more likely the UK is going to fall apart over time...

London ain't going to be able to stop Scotland or anyone else from leaving if enough momentum builds... momentum which Theresa and Brexit seem determined to fuel judging by the patronising and cynical way they're treating NI and Scotland...

They're like the Russians in 1990, calculating that they can break the UK up and retain their "sphere of influence" without having to pay for it.

But if Kazakhstan can drift from Russia after being unwillingly granted independence, so can Wales drift from England. Especially given that Kazakhstan is landlocked, but Wales isn't.

The whole Brexit thing is descending into low farce, isn't it?

No comment required.
Didn't he say that the UK was one of the only countries in the European Union that didn't have a reason to be ashamed about its actions in the 20th century?

Don't forget either that the "empire 2.0" tag actuals belongs to the civil servants who take the piss out of the idea.

I suggest a hard border at junctions 17and 13 on the M50. And then on the canal at Portebello. Liffey bridges are best destroyed east of Sackville Bridge. Can't take any chances.

Why would they want to take the piss out of the idea??

Unless... they thought it was a fvcking idiotic idea? Maybe that's it.

I'd say by the end it will have descended a whole lot further too...

Brexit is going to be like trying to navigate a super tanker as opposed to a nimble speed boat...

The consequences of it will continue to ripple for decades to come and anyone who thinks all the doom and gloom predictions have been avoided is gullible at best... because the reality is Brexit hasn't even feckin' well started yet...

Gotta 'sigh' bigly every time I see and hear British politicians and commentators etc. lamenting the fact that the issue of EU citizens in the UK and Brits abroad hasn't been sorted.

Apparently Theresa offered to sort that ahead of A50 but was rebuffed by the EU... the suggestion being that it's all the EU's doing that they're now in limbo...

Eh... no...

It was the UK that had a referendum and it was the UK that had no f***ing clue what they were going to do in the event of the result they got...

If they had and they'd activated A50 soon after the referendum it's very possible these citizens would had some clarity by now.

But nah... the UK had no plan and apparently it's now all the EU's fault that these citizens are now pawns in negotiations...

Be prepared for lots more of this tedious blame game rubbish by the Brits over the next few years and probably beyond...

I suspect the EU is going to be blamed for everything and anything that doesn't suit London... probably in perpetuity.

Not at all. This is uuuuuge news for manufacturers of solar helmets, swagger sticks, mosquito nets, gunboats, Union Jack banners, coronation mugs, bowler hats, cricket bats, deck chairs, old school ties, leg irons and striped blazers. Not to mention publishers of the Great British Bible, trainers of deportment and elocution, certifiers of social class, composers of music hall ditties and owners of floggem and buggerem public schools.

Johnny Foreigner doesn't know how to make quality products to a standard an empire deserves so there'll be thousands and thousands of jobs for labourers of good British stock. Britain will be great once again and the envy of the world as its economy takes off to a plane where the sun never sets.
