Re: The US sports thread

Danny Amendola had an interesting interview along those lines after he left this year, basically saying the Patriots is not a place to make big money as a player but to win stuff then move on.

Re: Brexit....or in.

Lets continue to be super condescending without paying attention to what oneself has said.... Right: you charge import tariffs to make your domestic products attractive to local buyers. Other countries charge us export tariffs, to try and make our products less attractive. If you don't charge import...

Re: Brexit....or in.

I'm quoting government research into the cost of food in the UK. Not, nore, the research pulled from RTTs arse. You've been suggesting we're going to make up our increased export market costs from out import market? Which we can't do if we don't charge tariffs to match. You can't have it both ways ;...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Yes I've digested what you've written. And as usual gotten very tired of the usual RTT-can-never-be-wrong attitude. I note how you nicely dodged the comment about 70% of our trade coming through EU and EU negotiated trade deals.... Which is exactly why trade deals are important in the context of Bre...

Re: Brexit....or in.

We can publish the WTO tariffs, yes. But if you look at what I wrote, you'd see that I stated we can't negotiate tariffs with specific countries; so when you say we can reduce tariffs....

Finally, Jeremy Corbyn grows a pair and calls a vote of no confidence, though noticeably the DUP aren't in the undersigned.....
