    What does a middling European power with very little indigenous manufacturing industry and a reliance on debt to prop up its standard of living really expect? What happened to our educational standards that 52% of the population can't see this reality?

    and before I forget, on 1st April 2020 they will unanimously pass a new directive to force the clearing of Euro based derivatives in the EU so generating a 100,000 new jobs and a much needed increase in tax revenue to fund public sector jobs for EU citizens returning from the UK.

    I'm sure he'd be able find someone to "put him up" for just long enough to register to vote.

    I think the Tories survival instinct is kicking in as they now ditch Brexit.

    The Tories threatened to do that and were going to make a pigs ear of it. They stated they couldn't do it to Eastern Europeans without doing it to British citizens.

    However they forgot that many systems have a residency requirement as well so if you were educated here before the age of 16 you qualify. That way those in the care system or are disabled and have lived here all their lives aren't made destitute.
