"If the supposed route to prosperity for post Brexit “global Britain” lies through a global lattice work of preferential trade deals, how can one possibly seriously argue that the ONLY bloc with which one does not need a free trade deal is the one with which one does easily the largest volumes of trade?

And if a preferential trade deal with the EU is, in practice, essential, then you obviously gain nothing by tumbling completely out to WTO rules, and then having to try and scramble your way back up the hill to a preferential deal, under huge time pressure, notably in those many sectors and issues on which a resort to WTO rules gives you nothing."

This is the bit I never understand about Brexiteers who claim WTO will be a clean Brexit.

that warms the cockles of my heart, bless the free market

maybe my sales slump thought was a reasonable as well as the wasted propaganda aspect of the maildrop spoonnews that fell in the letterbox yesterday

i did not like the look of the egg on a bun thing, no sir it was ugly .

tis rather daft to do a ratner to half the population and upset a lot of the staff even if half the punters are going to stay on side

a beer hall putsch with the spooners as the storm troops would be messy but rather funny once it was hosed up .

never underestimate etc but an afternoon in a barnsley spoons is quite an education .
a bank holiday monday is even better.

they now have unicorn gin with "added sparkle " glinty manure , how quaint

Nice to know Weatherspoons is finally finding out what Brexit means; pity it didn't happen earlier. Couldn't have happened to a nicer bloke!

We found it convenient for meals, but son and DIL stopped going in there when the started supporting Brexit, so we didn't go with them and don't go on our own.

Bad language alert.

Satire is dead. This could be true.
