Thinking about the 50p coins which have been minted and are not now being used, what else can you list that was 'definite' and how long did it last before being pulled?

I'll start with an easy one: SJ said there would definitely be a budget in November and then, less than 24 hours later, said there wouldn't.

Ah, dust can be brushed off ??? and the champagne may improve a bit with age.

Or it may just lose its fizz as it becomes old and tired - much like BJ and his cronies Brexit claims.

I know I will bore some of you with this but there was the solemn promise to all EU nationals that they would automatically be granted leave to stay. A bit later the settled status scheme was put in place. For some EU nationals it has worked, for others it is proving to be a nightmare.

Not boring Greta that is what this thread is about. Personally I am delighted that my friends saw what was happening, one has dual nationality in another EU country, some EU friends have become British Citizens as has a non-EU friend. Let's not forget the 3 who have simply left the UK and taken their high qualifications and experience with them

Katie Hopkins said: "We are out on 31st October. If I am proved wrong I will drink a pot of tea naked in the Apprentice losers cafe with Farages face on each nipple." sic. OK, I'm getting ahead of myself but I do hope she doesn't!

Not really for this thread but, as many of you seem to have a sense of humour I will put this in. I heard on the radio today that we have a 'nextension' !

Love it Nonnie grin

Has Boris chosen his ditch yet? He’s gone very quiet on that one.

SirC while we hare enjoying this and laughing let me put myself up for ridicule. You had been on GN for quite some time before I 'got' your name! Haven't admitted it before but now I find myself trying to interpret everyone's!

SirChenjin Mon 28-Oct-19 16:56:38

LOL - I do the same with other names and I google them (being the good search engine that I am) to see what their names mean. A lot of lightbulb moments here, I can tell you! smile

Hope this isn't a duplication, the UK will explode if we don't leave on 31st. Mark Francoise.

Watch Boris Johnson tell the DUP in 2018 he would never put border in the Irish Sea

Guess what's in his "great" WA? - a border in the Irish Sea.
