  1. Except not really. It’s still mostly a common law system (Scottish common law rather than English common law) which makes it fundamentally different from the civil law systems most continental countries have. It’s also primarily adversarial rather than inquisitorial as you find in, say, France.
  2. There is no such thing as "leaving GDPR". There is an act of parliament that implements in UK law the requirements of the EU GDPR directive. Will the UK government spend the time passing a new data protection act or repealing the existing one so we're no longer subject to some of the aspects of the current one? I seriously doubt that's going to be on their to-do list. By the way, if you'd ever tried to exercise your "rights" under the act, you'd know that it's basically useless, like much EU originated legislation in fact.
  3. I have no idea, but on Feb 1 2020 you can start a new thread entitled "Now That We've Left The EU, What Happens Next?" to discuss it.
  4. Well, after nearly 5000 pages, the question of "Brexit, what happens next?" has finally been answered. We leave the EU on Jan 31st 2020. Yay!
  5. All the reasons why the Honda move is nothing to do with Brexit: - Honda say it isn't. There's no value to them in denying it if that were the case, could be quite convenient in fact. - The EU is removing tariffs on cars imported from Japan so Honda doesn't need to run factories in the EU anymore (once Swindon is shut they will have no car assembly in Europe). - They're refocussing on electric vehicles and closing other factories too - https://www.auto123.com/en/news/honda-closing-factory-focus-electric/64028/ Oh, and sales for them in Europe since 1990 (in 1000s): Not that any of these facts will get in the way for our resident die-hard remainers of course.
  6. Indeed: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/jan/29/amendments-to-may-statement-brexit-bill
  7. Same thing according to the guy that wrote it: https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/commentators/valeacutery-giscard-destaing-the-eu-treaty-is-the-same-as-the-constitution-398286.html
  8. Pretty much that. I've been having a set to with a bunch of remoaners on BookFace (yes, dumb I know) and, despite me being entirely polite - just asking how many times we have to vote before the result actually counts - I've had a ton of personal abuse.
  9. So, by that logic, all terrorists are muslim, all romany are thieves and so on?
  10. I think that stepping away from the booze bottle might be advisable too.
  11. You use a term that you admit is racist but you’re not racist for using it and I, about whom you know absolutely nothing, apparently can’t possibly understand anything about racism to start with. How does that work then?
