On the subject of the space station I was lying in bed last night looking at the stars and one star started moving sideways. I jumped out of bed and ran to the window thinking it was the space station but it then started going backwards and upwards, occasionally turning orange so I realised it must be a helicopter. If it was the space station it would certainly have been a ‘Houston, we have a problem’ situation.

As soon as the referendum result was announced I said that, with luck, nothing much would change for the man in the street but it would have cost millions to keep things the same. In fact we have spent billions to make everything worse.

And B...it has cost more than we have ever contributed since we joined!!! Bargain - not.

I think it's going to continue to cost us much more. All that extra red tape, border personnel, lorry parks, travel insurance, visas, etc.

Tax payers has spent billions to line the pocket of the wealthy with millions.

Exactly WWM. Including Steve Dechan, who received 276m and has coincidentally upgraded a normalish house to a 1.5m landed mansion.

Our taxes. NOT Europe. Britain.

German press saying that the Sunderland Nissan plant will close and move to Germany. Has this been confirmed?

Lots of finance houses moving or have moved their money and staff out of the U.K.

Biba I think Nissan and Toyota have both said they will stay if the government covers their no-deal tariffs.
