I would perhaps agree with you had anything she has done, other than distract the Government from concentrating on getting the best possible deal for the country, made an iota of difference.

It hasn't, to date all she's done is spent time and money on a hiding to nothing and she's intent on continuing to do so.

Now that Parliament have voted to let the Government forge ahead with the withdrawal process she should shut up and go away with her tail between her legs.

Re: Brexit

Positive gamble by Toyota
Quote:
Toyota hands 240m Brexit boost to UK
Toyota says it is to invest 240m upgrading its car plant at Burnaston in Derbyshire, in what amounts to a vote of confidence in the plant after the Brexit vote.
As carmakers, including Toyoya, scramble to demand tariff-free access to the EU following the split, the company said the money - to improve the factory's competitiveness - included 21.3m of "support" from the UK Government.
Dr Johan van Zyl, the president and Chief executive of Toyota Europe, noted "Continued tariff-and-barrier free market access between the UK and Europe that is predictable and uncomplicated will be vital for future success."

Quick!... Someone go send either a doctor or Ambulance to Gina Miller's Residence, pronto, because I think this will have made her extremely unwell.

Gina will want the Monarch removed and replaced by someone else....like Gina herself perhaps?

The BBC will fund her cause for the throne.

I just hope Armitage Shanks provide one to save us all months of angst.

Re: Brexit

I see the BBC reckons a family leaving the UK due to Brexit is worthy of reporting - a 'Must See' in fact.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-39305860

I wish them luck but families come and leave the UK all the time and for all sorts of reasons yet the Beeb clearly feels this has additional significance for some reason.

The reality is that for many years, the number of people leaving the UK has been vastly exceeded by the number coming in and still is in spite of Brexit and all the associated hyperbole.

Maybe next week the Beeb will do a similar piece on a family who've heard all about Brexit yet are still choosing intolerant, xenophobic Britain as the place they want to live and work...

I wouldn't count on it. The Brussels Broadcasting Company has it's own anti-British political agenda.

In Summer the BBC was widely known as the Brexit Broadcasting Corporation. It has continued this theme with an unhealthy obsession of pro-Brexit guests only on the Andrew Marr Show, a well known Brexiter.
This magazine article is so poor [many other reasons apart from Brexit for the family to move to Germany] that I can only assume the Brexit Broadcasting Corporation chose it for this very reason. It gives the appearance of balance but is so unconvincing it delivers the opposite.

Nice to have a laugh first thing in the morning. Keep this quiet Andrew, but CNN, actually supports Trump.

John Major attacks 'ultra-Brexiteers' as undemocratic and un-British. The former prime minister accused hardline leave campaigners of ‘shouting down anyone with an opposing view’

Interesting comments from John Major. Certainly recognise what he's talking about, on this very forum ! People have become more entrenched, divided, and 'nasty' to each other since the vote. Do any of us want the future of our country and society to be like this ? (holds breath for 'nasty' comments !)

People look at the NHS but another area of concern are social care workers. They are many from Eastern Europe who are carers for people with serious conditions. No idea if we're losing them but that would be a big problem because it's a very difficult job that pays peanuts.
