Same happened to me, albeit from YouPörn.
On the whole, I'd rather be in Wallenpaupack.

So how do we think we now look in the eyes of our EU colleagues?

What a farce. You couldn't make this up.

May is spending so much time in Brussels lately she should get a house there. A pied-à-terre in the diplomatic quarter perhaps. Maybe she already has!

From the BBC :

"The three-page document says the UK will remain under the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice and be required to permit freedom of movement during any transition period.

And agreements on the Irish border, the so-called divorce bill and the rights of EU and UK citizens, agreed by Mrs May last Friday, must be "respected in full and translated faithfully into legal terms as quickly as possible".

The document says: "As the UK will continue to participate in the customs union and the single market during the transition, it will have to continue to comply with EU trade policy."

So no different from now then.

Well besides we won't have a vote on anything.

Genius.

Meanwhile amongst all the wanking, knee patting, incompetent negotiations and stupidity:

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/dec/19/nhs-hospitals-unable-fill-thousands-vacant-posts-labour-says


The NHS is short of more than 100,000 staff, and some hospitals are struggling to fill as many as 1,600 vacancies, according to new research that has sparked fresh fears about patient safety.

NHS understaffing is so acute that almost one in four posts at some trusts are lying vacant, freedom of information requests by the Labour party show. The vacancy rate has risen over the last year.


Safe in their hands, fuck yeh.

This should appall everyone regardless of political persuasion as we all may need the NHS.

But is this incompetence or malevolence ?

Don't hold your breath.

Timing seems a bit odd - why wait until now?
Perhaps there's more to come out? Who knows?
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

All the more reason to sit tight I'd have said - it seemed to have blown over for the most part.

Nah... it was obviously agreed he was going but decided to wait until now so May could have PMQ's yesterday and tell us all what a marvellous job she's making of Brexit without having to answer questions about defending her second in command who has been lying through his back teeth.

Yes, that makes sense.
Still reckon there might be more to come though.

In his (resignation) letter, Mr Green said he accepted statements he made about what he knew about the pornography investigation could have been "clearer", conceding his lawyers had been informed about the original discovery in 2008 and the police had raised the matter within him in a phone call in 2013.

"I apologise that my statements were misleading on this point," he said.
--------------

So he knew about it back in 2008. Well I never.

What have we come to when a public servant can no longer pass a few idle minutes having a wank on the clock?
Do we really want to live in a world like that?
I suppose the nanny state nay sayers will say it was the covering it up rather than the wanking that did for him, but it is still a sad day for wankers everywhere.

Good to see that David Davies has acted with the integrity we all expected from him and has announced that he will not honour his pledge to resign in sympathy with Green.

I imagine his reverse weasel on this one will hinge on the idea that being asked to resign is not the same thing as being sacked.

They really are the biggest sack of shit weasels I have ever seen outside a cabinet meeting in Washington or Harare
