I wonder how many of the current Shadow Cabinet send/sent their children to Private Schools?
Not only that, they will also abolish ofsted to cover up their idiocy.

Everything the Labour party do is rank hypocrisy, it's just typical socialism......

'Just look at the shadow foreign secretary, Emily Thornberry. Five years ago, she was sacked from the Labour frontbench for sneering at a house adorned with the English flag. This weekend, she surrounded herself with EU flags at a rally for a so-called “People’s Vote”, and wore a blue dress and necklace of gold European stars. After twice voting against an election, she shouted: “This is what democracy looks like!” After promising to respect the referendum result, she chanted: “What do we want? A People’s Vote!” Ominously for Corbyn’s policy, she added: “When do we want it? Now!”

This is the mindbending logic of politicians so enamoured by a sense of righteousness that they fail to see the absurdity of their own words. Thornberry demands a “People’s Vote”, while ignoring the people’s vote held three years ago. She urges democracy, while plotting to stop an early election. She wraps herself in the flag of the superstate her country voted to leave, while mocking her own national flag. Unlike the patriotic many, she is one of the kind who would sooner steal from a poor box than stand for God Save the Queen.'

As regards a border up North, again are you aware that if the UK want to trade under WTO after Brexit that the UK has to strengthen its borders.

Of course the EU also has to strengthen its borders and as it is the UK leaving the EU as opposed to the other way around that it is the UK'S fault.
Ah yes, it's his bad back that makes him spout utter bollocks and grab unsuspecting females.

Thomas Cook Travel goes "wallop" 150,000 stranded Brits and 9,000+ British jobs gone.

Thomas Cook blames Brexit uncertainty as it announces £1.5bn loss
Shares in holiday giant slump by more than 17 per cent after results announced

Thursday 16 May 2019 07:45

Thomas Cook blamed Brexit uncertainty as it announced a £1.5bn loss and confirmed that multiple bids had been made for its airline.

The tour operator claimed UK customers were delaying their holidays for the summer because of the political deadlock.

Thomas Cook shares slumped more than 17 per cent after its results for the six months to 31 March were announced.

“The first six months of this year have been characterised by an uncertain consumer environment across all our markets,” said Mr Fankhauser.

“The prolonged heatwave last summer and high prices in the Canaries reduced customer demand for winter sun, particularly in the Nordic region, while there is now little doubt that the Brexit process has led many UK customers to delay their holiday plans for this summer.”

That smells like total BS to me.

Most likely most people are booking their holidays themselves and cutting out the middleman.

Quite frankly, if you’re under fifty and still using a travel agent then you deserve to be ripped off. Most aren’t.

Not everything is down to brexit. It’ll cause enough hassle as it is, but that up there, will just dilute the message.

Also IIRC Thomas Cook were in trouble long before the referendum.

It is increasingly becoming clear that the EU for all its faults is a far more trustworthy, competent organisation than the current or recent UK governments have proven over the past 3+ years.
There is a serious lack of competent leadership professionals in the U.K. at top level jobs.

Thomas Cook's first holiday was a day trip from Leicester to Loughborough - the good thing is that post-Brexit Global Britain this will become the holiday destination of choice for Brits and they'll be able to relaunch.

Weird how Sony, Honda, Panasonic, Unilever, Barclays, Diageo, HSBC, Bank of America, Nissan, Panasonic, Schaeffler, Airbus, Philips, UBS, Hitachi, Jaguar Land Rover, BMW, Ford and Thomas Cook etc are all doing a project fear.

Just 4 months after Thomas Cook's warnings were dismissed as another example of 'Project Fear', the company's gone bust. Will Brexiteer heads finally start coming out of the sand?

With the sunny uplands of Brexit just around the corner, business should have been booming?

"continuity of trade conditions"


Yeah, great stuff, Britain's trade negotiation team have done a stellar job there to keep current conditions.

Sunlit uplands indeed

Thomas Cook says Brexit hitting holiday plans
16 May 2019

Travel firm Thomas Cook has warned of "further headwinds" for the rest of the year after reporting a £1.5bn loss for the first half of the year.

It said there was "now little doubt" that Brexit had caused customers to delay their summer holiday plans.




Like the 10% to 20% increase in holiday costs resulting from the Brexit sterling devaluation wasn’t a factor.


Oh well.
