Interestingly the Brexit negotiations are getting battered by evey EU country that has a grudge against us, and Greece is now getting its oar in, by wanting back the Elgin marbles taken from the pantheon, sold to the UK in 1816.

The British museum says no, as this would be a president for all other countries to ask for everything back from UK museums.

I say Boris should allow Greece to get the marbles back as a one off deal, but with the proviso the EU should pay us for them, at our divorce costs to leave the EU of 39 Billion pounds, so the two payments cancel each other out, so that we pay nothing

On another subject about us leaving the EU, and the UK being (was) the third biggest payer to the EU, it will be a big hole in the EU budget.

I watched a documentary the other night, and it was showing how rich EU countries paying in (that was us), have to subsidise poorer EU countries, and the arguments have now started all ready on this years EU budget on how the money is to be spread out, and poorer countries may (will) now get less cash, as they are losing out on Billions of Euros from the UK in the years that follow.

I have no problem with this if, say, the Louvre followed the same policy...and the Vatican museum, the Museo del Prado, the Rijksmuseum...

The government suggested it I'm merely saying that what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.
Pointing out what they know but are reluctant to acknowledge such as Priti Patel's parents would not be admitted under their (her) restrictions.

That's okay though because it's totally alright to pull up the drawbridge once you're alright.

Meanwhile, some racist white woman rants on Question Time, and she turns out to be a big Tommy Robinson supporter, and was invited on by a clearly not balanced audience producer:
