And so it came to pass !
Wed 23:42
Have just Newsnight off, because of the sterility of the debate - this is, OR could be, the start of something exciting the cracks have become visible and the seepage has commenced. The sand in the timer has almost run its course, this will bring more people with a conscience to the Exit, so far as the two large party's are concerned. How many there will be is not a concern - there will be more, which among other things will negate the leverage of the DUP finally.

Up here Fine Fail are merging with the SDLP - not a marriage made in heaven but we'll see what happens. Meanwhile at Queens, Fine Gael are registering their presence in time for the May elections, I have not heard yet if they will be putting up any candidates or co-oporating with another party. My own feeling is that they should fly their own flag because I cannot see among the "local" parties a prospective partner that would work well with them.

This being said - who thought Sin Fein and the DUP could work together - if Brexit does become a reality and it could, all bets are off so far as the voting population up here are concerned. From the limited soundings that I have been able to take, some of the people from the "other side" are very unhappy that The Assembly closed down over two years ago and shows no sign so far of putting the lights back on.

People here are not as inclined to discuss politics - UNLESS THEY KNOW WHO THEY ARE TALKING TO - for fairly obvious reasons. There is however no hiding their frustration over the current buffoonery which may very well persuade them to throw in their lot with one of the new entrants which I don't think will be Fine Fail.

A no deal Brexit goes ahead - anything can happen and probably will.

Maybe we should all light a candle....

Good luck all.. Do not feel like visiting the Lloyds Forum even though I could do with a laugh..

Todays developments are not entirely unexpected as the deadline approaches - the labour defectors are the first - how long until we see some Conservatives jump ship ?
Boris and his cohorts should be feeling like rats in a sack, instead I am quite sure that they are still lost in the delusion that they will have saved Britain, once the UK casts itself adrift.
If the outcome of all of this achieves Proportional Representation, whether or not the UK leaves, it will have been worth it, because it will blunt the power of over mighty lobby groups and could very well improve voter turnout at election time.
The present turmoil amongst the car makers is not really a surprise, given the current levels of competition and profitability amongst the various manufacturers. The market is over supplied and Brexit has given them the chance to rationalise their production and concentrate their resources where they bare the most fruit.
This is the downside of outsourcing employment, inward investment is fine whilst the sun is shining - when it starts to rain everybody gets wet.
Unless the UK government comes to its senses and "REMAINS" the country will take years to recover from this foolishness - I feel very sorry for the poor individuals who work at Honda and the other outposts of foreign capital....

Good luck all.

If you stick with your 'friends' on this board, you may last a while longer, but maybe not too much longer as I'm sure that they will soon get sick of you here as well.

But chasrutledge not much hope the state will sell the shares at their current levels as they are too cheap, i.e. poor return for the taxpayer.

It would be as daft as what they did in the UK when Gordon Brown sold off the gold reserves when the price was its lowest in 20 years (1999 -2002). The gold price basically ended up 4 time higher, soon after. Cost them billions!!!

But the UK ability to cock up does not end there... Their mistakes in 1992 that led to Black Wednesday, when the UK was forced to withdraw from the European Exchange Rate Mechanism, which HM Treasury has estimated cost the UK taxpayer billions more.

Now they are crashing their economy again which will end up cost them billions again!

Not very smart, our neighbors, at the end of the day....

Probably get banned again now! LOL

Once again
Sun 00:13
Martin is with me in lamenting the pitiful state of politics - when an old fashioned BLUNDERBUSS filled with rubbish is deployed to massage public opinion. Quite frankly it is like listening to turkeys, the discussions engaged in by these "professionals" in order to influence our opinion have become a babel - not in the least informative or constructive.

They are all well able to talk - but how much of what they say informs the debate - the only politicians who make any sense are Martine McGuinness and Michael Martin, who have obviously thought hard about Brexit and its consequences for Ireland.

I am afraid that this is not going to end well for the Tories, hopefully the party will split and the "Luddites" will be joined by the Bill Cash and Boris Johnson fan club when they form their own party having merged with what is left of UKIP.
The sensible members of the Conservative Party can then perhaps be re-cast as being just right of centre, which would enable them to form a government with like minded individuals in other parties.

The idea that Jeremy Corbyn could be the next Prime Minister does not bear thinking about or that Boris has a political future that I would feel like voting for.

Mrs Thatchers brand of "capitalism" has run its course, the ideas that she let loose are now coming home to roost as the economy starts to misfire. The many friends that Britain has around the world, do not seem all that numerous to me and yet we are told that they will rescue the UK from this mess that has been created - "because of the UK's power prestige and influence.

Europe is a social economy which could do with being improved, so far as accountability is concerned. The rise of populism in parts of the continent needs to be addressed but on the whole I prefer a social economy to raw capitalism, because it seems to me to have failed, when you look at how well it works when applied to the NHS or to the type and value of the jobs that it creates - apart from those in the City or the higher levels of Public Service and Parliament.

Good luck all.
Amen.

Excellent piece on the FT about Brexit.

https://www.ft.com/content/0d4f6ac0-3111-11e9-80d2-7b637a9e1ba1

Not sure if the link will work but the article is well worth a read

If not, just do a google search for 'brexit ft act1' and you should be able to find it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

ACT 1

The next few weeks are likely to evolve in three distinct phases, much like a three-act play. Act 1 is all about killing off the disastrous outcome of leaving the EU on March 29 without a deal, which remains the default. Parliament clearly rejects that option and has now done so twice — albeit without engaging the legal muscle required to cancel Article 50 should a no-deal Brexit become otherwise inevitable.

ACT 2

Act 2, which could prove very short, will revolve around final attempts to obtain some kind of compromise with the EU. It needs to be sufficiently Brexity to persuade the hardliners in the Conservative party and the Democratic Unionist party that a fig leaf over the initial Northern Ireland backstop provides enough cover for their partial retreat; or, alternatively, sufficiently like the European Economic Area (the so-called Norway option) to persuade soft Brexiters that they have achieved “Brexit in name only”.

ACT 3

Act 3 begins with the prime minister, centre stage, looking for salvation: the threat of no deal will have been disarmed and her plan will still lack majority support. There are urgent appeals for someone (a deus ex machina) to write in a few more acts but delay for its own sake achieves little. There will remain the option of going to the country by calling a general election — risky but tempting given the helpless Labour leadership — or going to the country with a referendum, which offers a choice between Mrs May’s Brexit deal and the deal we already have as members of the EU.

Not looking good for Brexiteers!

Be aware of the move upwards from here, be sharp and not short!!

Deal will be struck with EU for Brexit....with the backstop deal intact (give or take with legal niceties) and Labour support in the Commons (May will be gone shortly thereafter). Yesterday's vote in the Commons confirms the play!
Run in to FY results happening. Going to be a cracker and hopefully a sharp hike in dividends. Management have to sell the dividend story from here on as growth strategy not going to work looking forward.

Message is clear....this share price is too low and a rebound to NAV 1:1 is on the cards! What is that number.....7.70!!!!

Yes indeed
13 Feb '19
If only we had a Garret now - when we left Ireland Garret was in charge and I watched his hair turn white as he grappled with the mountain of debt that he had been left with.There was no such thing as delaying the proceeds of the sale of our home from transferring out of the country - in order to start again.
He was indeed a great man - the only one who could put a bell on the tail of Margaret Thatcher - boy I miss him and the integrity that he brought to public life and government. The footings that he put down for the Irish economy were sound even if it did take about seven years for the country to really benefit Bertie had a great spell while it lasted.
So far as the politics are concerned here, I am impatient for the change that must take place - and I suspect that once Brexit is resolved "MAY WE LIVE THAT LONG" the previous administration will be replaced and the DUP will hopefully be replaced, as the electorate becomes more sophisticated and puts aside the tribalism of the past in favour of something more enterprising and progressive.
The present shower have more in common with locusts as they massage the public purse building skyscrapers in Belfast, rather like the new Childrens Hospital in Dublin. Somebody's making money and a lot of it.
This is turning into one of my rants !!!
Good luck all.
