    Brexit, for once some facts.

    I don't think so, since two consecutive and long prorogues would be unprecedented. There could be no other reason for them than Johnsons true intention, the obstruction of parliament I agree, since the Court will want to avoid interference in politics. As with our High Court, they will have...

    If true they shouldn't be that complacent, since it's likely the Queen would refuse a further proroguing. The Queen only ever acts in such matters on advice and I think it likely the palace would advise that a further prorogue expressly to defeat the will of parliament would be her interfering...

    Absolutely, our leaving the EU makes it a de facto hard border, regardless of any Good Friday agreement. Leaving the EU means that agreement will have to change, either in fact or in interpretation. .

    There's been no need to pull Britain down since before 1930, it's been sliding downwards all by itself ever since then. The downward trend was slowed considerably by our EU membership, but it's now got up to speed with a vengeance. .

    Horses for courses, my situation is very much the opposite The large more distant Sainsburys is the best of the lot, always with plenty of spaces in its huge parking area, while the local Aldi and Lidl are a parking nightmare, far more cars than places and tailbacks into the roads causing local...

    But as you acknowledged, it's not all the same. It's not only about better quality on the items the discounters aren't so good on, I'm also shopping from a vast range of quality goods that the discounters could only dream of stocking. .

    Not always madness, it would be mad of me not to use the best. I really can't be bothered going though all that Aldi and Lidl sell to find out what's good and what's not, since price is irrelevant to me, and I don't want to do multiple part shops. I don't even know what I pay for most items...

    There is a requirement for basic training and it is prosecutable, but that usually only crops up after accidents (of which there are many). In practice a very large proportion of all fork lift operation is done by unqualified people, though many have had some in house training, which is what I...

    That wasn't the case, it was a new condition that Lidl imposed, causing quite a storm. I'm strongly opposed to it on safety grounds since driver stop time is legally rest time off the tachograph, not fork lift driving time or other work time. There's also the fact that fork lift operators...

    Actually it's costing jobs, so not good news. Plus for Aldi is minus for Sainsburys, so some sort of balance there. But Aldi and Lidl work with less staff in many ways to do the job, so costing jobs overall. For example, Lidl insisting drivers from other companies delivering to them must...

    You're being disingenuous, a polite way of saying you are lying. Your clear implication was repeatedly that we would reach deals with Germany et al that were at least equal to what we enjoy at present. If they were not at least equal, i.e favourable, why would you have even posted that as a...
