Why we will be back in Europe and surprisingly quick

1) Take away Brexit Boris, and all you have are "swivel-eyed-loons".  Think about it - who is in any way "normal" in the current Brexit party - sorry Conservative Brexit Party?


 I mean look at them.  What a bunch of awkward misfits...   And in the ranks... all those odious backbenchers like Mogg, Baker, Jekin, Cash, Redwood, Bridgen & Francois.

It was Boris what won it.   And Boris is going to come seriously unstuck....   Either he goes soft brexit, so then what was the point?  Or he goes hard, and boy it's going to be hard; and with it an economic hit.

You see the problem?  Boris has nailed the Conservative & Brexit party flag so hard to the "Outside Everything"-mast; that he can't possibly go back.

2) All the Labour party have to do it get someone vaguely presentable, certainly Starmer would be fine, or Nandy or Thornberry and propose a "EFTA"-like trading arrangement.  That's back in folks, and as far as we want to take it - certainly until Farage & Co are in the nursing home.  If there has been one tiny glimmer of light is that we won't have to bear the sight of that snake-oil salesman any longer in the EU Parliament.   Going back into the EU would mean him getting voted back in, so No Thank You.

ETFA means free trade - free movement - keeping the Pound (I'd prefer to dump, but whatever), and a low profile in Brussel.

It also means faster economic growth (you know.. no tariffs, market access lol), and Good Ol' Boris and Friends can't go anywhere near proposing *that*.   So the gift of anyone who wants to take it.

The thing is, that most "normal" MPs were remainers - that is, "grown ups" who understand this is not about Empire 2.0 but working together with the countries that are closest geographically to us... so it is only a matter of time that the slogan politics, into which have descended, gives ways to quiet sensible decisions.

I will leave the last word to these guys....  Thank you

How do you fix a roll of aluminium foil once it's started spiralling?

I had this problem.

Seen a post on Reddit.  Old one.

"This thread is archived

That is a shame.  As I now have a better answer than any of the posts.

Get a pair of tweezers and scrape down from the part of the foil roll that is "stuck".  

Don't matter if it digs down into the layer beneath.  Try to maintain even digging across the roll.

Worked a treat!

Spanish verbs

Damn Spanish verbs can be frustrating.  I been trying for 13 years, and still get confused.  Must be the old brain.

I found a great "Cheat Sheet" (for fun try getting a Spanish person to say that :)) on Dummies.com but it a bit long so I cut it down a bit to just the most useful verb endings.

The cheat sheet is only good for regular verbs, and the most important/often used ones are irregular.

So last intercambio I worked with my friend to translate some typical sentences.

Here we are:


My mother was here until today,

Mi madre ha estado aqui hasta hoy,

and she will probably be back in April.

y ella a lo mejor volvera en Abril

We all had a nice time.

Nos lo pasamos bien.

Tanya & Isabel went to Barcelona on Sunday for appointments Isabel had yesterday and today.

Tanya y Isabel fueron a Barcelona dominigo para hacer encargos Isabel tenia ayer y hoy.

They are coming back now and are expected to be at home when Henry and I get there.

Ellos estan volviendo ahora mismo y se espera qu…

I've had a idea for Boris.

This is what he should do.

He should go to Brussels and demand:

1) End of EU commissioner/president appointments.  These should be directly elected by the Members States populations.. think "US President"-style elections.
2) Move the European Court of Justice or the European Central Bank to somewhere in the UK (not London)
3) End the monthly move of the European Parliament to Strasbourg.
4) Probably a few other things he can come up with...

THEN

Come back to the UK and offer this new deal (and Remain) or full out (with all the implications like loss of NI and subsequently Scotland) to the people in a new referendum.
