    I always put that down to New Zealand's British roots ... however - this subject probably belongs into a different thread - I don't see a direct link from NZ food quality to the BREXIT ...
    I prefer typical NZ, British, Irish food to Continental European food. It does not mean I dislike some dishes from other cuisines. It is a matter of taste and upbringing.

    Whilst I did not support a Brexit for the UK. The intransigence and "no exception" stance of the European Union appointees and many of the national leaders surely may do nothing to quell separatism in other countries. What is so bad about a pick-and-mix approach between countries that supposedly embrace cultural pluralism and difference.

    And now the Irish are creaming it, issuing passports as fast as they can with a huge waiting list. I wonder how much I could get for mine with about eight years to run on it?

    I saw a thing yesterday which said:

    It's almost like the UK and the US are having a competition to see who can f*** up their country the most. The UK is in the lead, but the US still holds the Trump card!

    The Poms will come out alright after a year or two of pain. Trump won't win the U.S. election, if he even survives until the election. So it will be Boris or Theresa May, and Hillary. Should be fun from here, downunder.

    5 reasons the Brexit panic is overdone

    Following link is good news for UK.

    http://www.theguardian.com/politics/...don-properties

    Major Singapore bank to suspend lending for London properties over EU leave vote

    Their overheated property market especially in London should drop and it is healthy for their economy. Lower rent will benefit many businesses, students and those who want to work in London and other cities. In a way, they are going to escape from the property bubble. In that way, it is a smart move.

    Pound had some volatility during last 10 years. Volatility in the currency market is not abnormal. If anything goes down below their value, they will go up again.

    I reckon he will. Soon as polls convince him he won't win, he'll find an excuse to pull out.

    Default Boris the clown leaves the stage ...

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-36672591

    Good that the clown realised that he is no PM material. Sad that he only realised it after the referendum. Tragic that the British voters didn't notice it in time.

    Anyway - the knives are out and its not just the backstabbers but as well the racists and xenophobes taking over the roads of what once used to be a great and united nation:

    All adds to the growing theory that he didnt actually want Britain out of Europe at all. He was only on the Brexit side out of self interest and didnt for a moment think they would actually win.

    I like your optimism ... lets just hope that Trump gets a better timing for his implosion (i.e. before the elections ...)

    I see Theresa May is being likened to Margaret Thatcher. - a tough and determined character apparently. Qualities which will be needed in the House of Cards (Westminster) and when dealing to the Ministry of Truth (EU).
