So this weekend MPs have to decide whether to re-configure the structure of political parties in this country, which doesn't happen too often  :o, or back May's deal.

May's deal looks dead in the water, but the way project fear is ramping up the rhetoric on all the mainstream news channels, and with an army of Internet trolls across social media, you never know.

I'm listening to local radio, driving across Kent, and it is really getting ramped up to the point of hysteria.  Operation 'Yellowhammer' has been programmed to start Monday, they had similar plans in place during WW2 when we were expecting the German invasion  :o
They are also warning parents in Kent to make contingency plans because their children may be sent home from school if the level of traffic fumes from thousands of backed up lorries becomes too high.  :police:

If the fear-mongering wins through, and MPs back her deal, we will be left with a deal so bad, and one that nobody wants, but has been rammed down our throats. We will then be offered the chance to rejoin the EU at the very first opportunity; the contingency arrangement agreed by Robbins etc to ensure that if the UK does somehow manage to extract itself from the EU, it will be for the shortest possible period.   :police:

My word, you really don't have much of a grasp of what's going on here do you?

It's not the civil servants May has been listening to, or is in the grip of. If you had spent any time monitoring what they've been saying over the last two years, you'd know what she has in fact been steadfastly ignoring them. The only people who seem to have May's ear are the ERG, and it's them you can blame for the current crisis simply because they've overreached themselves and - loathe as I am to come across all metropolitan liberal elite - aren't a particularly intelligent bunch of people. They're also a bunch of pathological and demonstrable liars, and as I've said before, it wouldn't surprise me to see some of them in prison once this is all over.

Anyone seeking a WTO exit right now, in the face of all the available evidence of the damage it would cause to the economy, is right up there with flat-earthers, fake moon-landing believers and 9/11 conspiracy theorists in the "cranks whose opinion we can safely ignore" stakes.

One factor making recruitment difficult in the past has been the travelling time getting to Boston.  They improved the roads and then put up average speed cameras to slow everybody down.  :(
I've never seen the budget figures publicised but there used to be a big wad of bank notes in the glove compartment of Malkies Merc, allegedly.

Its looking like May 22nd is the extension end date preferred by the EU 27, and Macron has warned that if May's deal is voted down for the third time, which it will be, then the UK leaves with no deal.
He doesn't want to publicly admit that he knows that MPs will just overturn the Brexit vote. They're really trying to force us into May's 'punishment deal' that Robbins negotiated with his EU buddies.

Amusing to hear the little fella telling the MPs in the house that they were 'not traitors' after the Maybot's speech last night.  She really has been badly advised throughout her tenure by a series of civil servant.  Its hardly surprising as its no secret that most of the civil service wanted to remain in the EU.

The Leave vote was up against it from day one and would anyone have even bothered to turn up to vote if they knew that their vote was meaningless, and that the result would ultimately be overturned by the very people who we expect to represent us?    ???

The March 29th London rally could turn very nasty.  We can only hope that enough MPs realise what a catastrophe it will be to revoke article 50, and vote to take us out as a sovereign nation trading globally under WTO.  :police:

What size of budget are we talking about?
What would be the average size budget in this league?
If we have a decent sized budget why is recruitment so obviously difficult?
In Craig's case the pressure to get his recruitment right for next season is now immense, yes it's good for him to be open and honest, but he may have put a big target on his back for next season if it starts badly.
Who knows, but I think most of us are willing him to get it right, not just for the club but also for him personally.

Another quote from CE today whilst talking about the need to keep our better players, "I keep saying we need to learn from the mistakes we’ve made as a club and as a manager."

Too many mistakes have been made over the past few years! So many clubs have got it right and are reaping the rewards, we can't seem to do so.

Agree comes down to shrewd, insightful recruitment & building a team that will dominate at this level. Murray failed (yes I backed him to succeed) & CE has got it badly wrong this season. Both have had the finances to succeed, you have to say in their first full seasons both have squandered good opportunities given by the board.
