  1. I agree with this. Whatever deal is put to parliament next might win over the DUP and get back that support, but it probably loses another 20-30 critical votes that don't want a hard Brexit. I think we either need another general election, or else a second referendum.
  2. Extrapolating intention to remain in the EU from the political parties share of the vote is a waste of time when we already have lots of polls that ask the question directly. https://whatukthinks.org/eu/questions/should-the-united-kingdom-remain-a-member-of-the-european-union-or-leave-the-european-union-asked-after-the-referendum/
  3. Anyone remember this guy? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casey_Serin It seems like this was only yesterday.
  4. The possibility of China imploding isn't new. Anyone remember the video Hugh Hendry made back in 2009 - that is an awful long time ago now.
  5. Rates aren't going anywhere this year. Inflation is at 1.9% and falling, if anything, we are more likely to see rates cut, especially if we get a hard Brexit.
  6. More bad news. https://news.sky.com/story/metro-bank-blunder-sparked-business-cash-exodus-11708868
  7. Financial services, I got 6%. I've seen a lot of people walk out from the firm where I work at similar increases. The market is ultra hot right now.
  8. Great point. The vested interests in this country have done a great job turning the generations and classes against each other, while completely deflecting any attention from the ultra wealthy.
  9. As an American, I hate saying this, but the only person more delusional than a Brit, is an American. In my home state of Florida, they just passed a law reducing the amount you could earn before you qualified for free healthcare. The only way to qualify now is to work at least 30 hours a week, and earn less than about £2.50. Despite that, many sections of the working class (a lot of whom are uninsured) would rather die than vote Democrat.
  10. Funny, but true. What we're currently seeing is barely minor grumbling. If you want to see real anger, I suggest you take a trip to Paris after a period of Yellow Vest rioting. That sort of thing just doesn't happen here because British people are very passive in the face of authority, and also as you suggest, people also like to self-identify themselves as being in a higher social class even when it's not true.
  11. I know a chap who takes the week of Cheltenham off every year using his sick leave "allowance".
  12. 28 + bank holidays for me, work in the private sector.
  13. I will vote for the most pro-Remain candidates/parties. I feel like this whole process has done so much damage to the country, we need to take a step back.
  14. What a shambles. The rest of the world must be laughing at us.
