"David Cameron has unwittingly written the best ever case for Brexit"

'' . . . 'For The Record' was written as political tragedy, a 700-page apology to the nation for the former prime minister’s role in what he regards as a calamity. But it’s also a candid account of how he pursued an idea – that the EU can be reformed – and tested it to (his) destruction. We see him making allies, drafting strategies, threatening and begging – but his story ends in failure. He expected diplomacy, but encountered a bureaucratic Death Star whose hunger for power is matched only by its intransigence. . . . .

Once inside its inner circle, he was exposed to the horrors. The directives, the stitch-ups, the knives always out for the City of London . . . . He found the EU to be “peacenik” on security, unable to respond to threats on its doorstep. He vetoed one of the eurozone bailout packages that threatened to suck in Britain, only to see the rules changed so the UK veto would not count . . .

“Whenever there was pressure to transfer powers to Brussels, the lawyers always found a way, but when I wanted to take powers back, those same lawyers always opposed it.” It is a formula to trap democracies: use complex laws and regulation to suck powers in, but never give them back . . . .

. . . He regards Brexit as a disaster, but those who read his book would be tempted to see it as liberation. A great democracy was being squeezed inside an unaccountable bureaucracy, and no one else in Europe wanted to risk their career by challenging it – or giving voters the chance to escape it. But Cameron did. He might, one day, come to see it as the greatest single service he did his country
."

Well at least DC got that right !  ;D

TW I take your point and have always valued my truck for those reasons - at the same time as lusting after a Camry   ;)   I may ask for help with Bahtsold when the time comes. Thanks.

Hector thanks to you too - I'd guess your Civic is a good vehicle if unrecognisable against the 22 year old one I have in the UK. (Just 70 K miles and runs like a dream but NO a/c !)

Thanks again both. The Vigo has new tyres and has alway been maintained copiously. Anyone else any ideas on what it might fetch ?

Random and Spurious / Re: Joke of the Day
« Last post by jivvy on September 20, 2019, 09:33:29 AM »

Jane and Arlene are outside their nursing home, having a drink and a smoke, when it starts to rain. Jane pulls out a condom, cuts off the end, puts it over her cigarette, and continues smoking.
Arlene: What in the hell is that?
Jane: A condom. This way my cigarette doesn't get wet.
Arlene: Where did you get it?
Jane: You can get them at any pharmacy.
The next day, Arlene hobbles herself into the local pharmacy and
announces to the pharmacist that she wants a box of condoms.
The pharmacist, obviously embarrassed, looks at her kind of strangely (she is, after all, over 80 years of age), but very delicately asks what size, texture, brand of condom she prefers.
'Doesn't matter Sonny, as long as it fits on a Camel.'
The pharmacist fainted.
