Err, they've been involved in air strikes against is is Syria and Iraq in the last couple of years...
In Syria they were involved in air strikes before us, maybe why they are now ahead of us in Nato.

France is such a strong terrorist target precisely because of its involvement in conflicts like Iraq and the Central African Republic.

We're not that far behind after Bliar's Middle East adventures. Our only advantage is that being an island it's a little more obvious when people want to come here for whatever reason. Whereas with shengen open boarders....

That's not how voting works and I think they know that.

Why don't you just acknowledge your statement was wrong? It's no big deal, we're all make mistakes.

For those wanting to read more about the NATO story which was behind a pay wall in The Times, it's now in The Telegraph. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017...ritain-brexit/

HSBC chairman: Brexit could trigger 'Jenga tower' of City job loses
Douglas Flint [HSBC Chairman] told the Commons Treasury Select Committee, which is investigating the impact of the UK’s decision to leave the EU, that secession from the 28-nation bloc could spark an unpredictable number of job losses from the capital into Europe or elsewhere.
“The ecosystem in London is a bit like a Jenga tower,” Mr Flint said, referring to the popular game in which players must avoid toppling a tower of wooden blocks. “We don’t know if you pull one small piece out, whether nothing happens or indeed there is a more dramatic impact.”

..another sore loser remoaner. Let's see

"unpredictable number of job losses" - which clearly includes none at all

"we don't know if" - quite, so stop your posturing and get on with your job

He's being asked questions by the Treasury Select Committee and these are his honest answers. It's part of his job to answer questions from Her Majesty's Government.
Surely you would prefer him to say what he has said than invent a figure?

or he could have said "an unpredictable number of NEW jobs". Answering in the negative clearly shows his bias.

He would need to be smoking an unusually strong brand of cigar if he were to pretend that Brexit would lead to job increases for his bank. Many Brexiters acknowledge the job losses that Brexit may create in the City but see this as a positive in rebalancing the economy towards other areas like tourism and manufacturing.
Hopefully the UK will continue its evidence-based approach to Brexit.

Yes "we're" do.

I'm not wrong, they didn't commit ground forces In Iraq. They, along with pretty much every other European NATO nation, don't pull their weight or pay their way.

They haven't earned No.2 slot. Simple.

Re: Post-Brexit Thread

Sources have it that the Govt. has lost the court case.
https://www.theguardian.com/politics...may-article-50

Doubt it will really change anything though. MPs are too scared of their seats to vote for the good of the country.
