    • Growth in the July to September quarter was weaker than expected, suggesting the recovery is losing steam.View the full article
    • I've also seen it mentioned that the two parts of Ireland becoming closer is concerning HMG.   And that NI still coming under EU rules for trade could be showing that it's better to be in the EU than in Brexit Britain. If people start to think it shows Brexit isn't working, that's going to be a problem for Johnson et al.
    • You won't be able to bring a counterclaim unless you can produce a properly structured assessment of losses or costs or ancillary expenses and you will need to do this by producing at least written assessment et cetera as I have indicated above. Two of them would be much better. A court won't entertain a counterclaim simply based on your own speculation as to your possible costs. I understand very well that your preference would be to write off the entire job including all of the materials that were supplied and for you to recover your outlay for those materials but I think in order to do that you would have to show that you have acquired no value from those materials and once again I think that you would need an expert assessment which explained why the materials were completely wasted and that you would have to start from zero. You can be certain that the claimant will attempt to say that you have received value and in fact that the items which have been supplied or already installed can still be used. I'm afraid that because the attempt to arrange this contract as a cash only agreement inevitably invites the scepticism of the court, I think the court may well be open to consider arguments that the items which have already been supplied are of use to you. If you can get expert confirmation that the supplied materials are now of no use whatsoever, then you will also have to get a quote for uninstalling them and returning them to the claimant. This means that the whole thing is getting even more complicated. I do think that your best interests would be to discuss the matter with your new installer and to see what items which have been already supplied can be used to finish the project – and then to try and deal with the claimant in respect of those on the basis that the case would be withdrawn and everybody would walk away. I think it's time to start abandoning some of this rancour between you because it isn't helping and it won't impress anybody. Don't underestimate the disapproval that will be felt by the court when they get to know about the cash arrangement and this won't be helped by the fact that you then went ahead to try and get receipts. I understand very well that you say that you simply provided money and that in fact you were the purchaser of the items directly from the retailer – but there is no evidence for that and it would be an unusual arrangement and I think the court might express scepticism about that as well. I think we have to bear in mind your credibility in this – and I think that it is rather fragile at the moment. If you came up with a sensible business- like idea about how to put this one to bed and then put it to the claimant and also mention the fact that as he was involved in a cash only transaction, he also might find that he is incurring the displeasure of the court – particularly as he is the claimant, he might feel inclined to try and wrap it all up and bring it to an end. I think the next thing you must do is to get an expert report as I've already suggested above. You will need to do this anyway. If you don't have an expert report then even if you happen to win your argument that there is a breach of contract, the assessment of how much you win will be impossible for the court to decide. The court will absolutely want expert assessments. So you need an assessment as to the work which has been carried out so far and the work needed and costs involved to carry out the job. You need an assessment as to the usability or otherwise of the equipment which has been supplied. At least that for the moment. I don't think it is possible to do much more until you have this information. If you can get the information then we can decide what to do. Obviously I don't know anything about the subject, but I can't imagine that all of the equipment which has been supplied is useless. It could only be useless if you suddenly say that you want an entirely different system of gates – but on that matter, you are bound by your expectation in the contract and you would only be entitled to install a similar system using similar equipment.  
    • I wonder whether part of the UK issue with current NI protocol, is that it is enabling a better trading environment between Ireland and Northern Ireland.     Northern Irish businesses have anticipated import/export issues with Great Britain, so now trade with Ireland or via Ireland.   Apparently reports are that some Northern Irish businesses have seen an increase in trade. It is only businesses that mostly sell British fresh produce that have been affected by border controls  and even then, they could swap to local produce.   Agree that UK Government are using argument with EU as a convenient distraction, but also there must be a worry about increased risk of a united Ireland, as a indirect consequence of Brexit.

It would seem that God is on Johnson 'the Prince of Lies' side (sic) .. or at least the (crusader) Catholic Church is:

How else could a double divorcee be married in a Catholic church?

Surely only God could allow that? (and in doing so re-envision the bible and the Catholic faith)

 

1. Divorce, understood as the dissolution of a marriage, is not possible between two baptized persons

Guess who said that? Not just a vicar of Christ, but Jesus Christ himself! Jesus forbids divorce, decreeing that husband and wife are “no longer two but one. What therefore God has joined together, let no man put asunder” (Matt. 19:6). St. Paul is consistent with Jesus’ teaching: 

To the married I give charge, not I but the Lord, that the wife should not separate from her husband (but if she does, let her remain single or else be reconciled to her husband)—and that the husband should not divorce his wife” (1 Cor. 7:10-11).

The Church is clear that “a ratified and consummated marriage cannot be dissolved by any human power or for any reason other than death” (CCC 2382).

I would rather they spent money on investing in new UK technology start up companies to replace the ones that have been bought by Chinese, US investors etc.

 

The recent problem with UK trade relationships, is that while the UK wants a free trade relationship with other countries, other countries don't appear to want to reciprocate in a fair way.  I see today in the news that Boris apparently wants Canada to allow UK producers to export more Cheese to them.  And Canada is not really interested in having more Cheese, as their own producers want to see less Cheese imports from Europe.

 

UK companies already export around the world.  I am not convinced that having a Royal Yacht to hold events in foreign ports is going to make much difference.

The whole rushed 'secret' marriage thing is very suspect.  I can think of three possible reasons -

 

He knows he's throwing us back into lockdown so wanted to get in while they could still have some guests.

 

He knows he isn't throwing us back into lockdown so wanted to get in while guests are still limited and save money.

 

You can't be made to testify against your spouse.

UK does export quite a lot, both goods and services.   Over 200,000 UK businesses in 2018 were involved with exports.

 

One of the reasons for the new Royal Yacht, was that it could be used as a floating venue for UK trade missions.

One of the claimed reasons from Johnson and Truss (not worth the paper its written on)

 

Other than that:

Australian sheep shows?

chlorinated Battery chicken transport?

Transporting bitcoin profits from freeports? .. to some other tax haven ..

 

I think as a venue festivities post Boris Johnsons next half dozen Catholic church marriages seems most realistic ..

Absolutely

Look at the out of date Nissan battery factory Johnson raved about as Nissan investing

.. Nissan sold it off to a venture capital firm (asset pension stripping?)

 

Now there is the promise of a breakthrough within 10 years (again) for metal-ion batteries

but for the 20 years until then, why not break the mold and go real steam punk

- Electric cars with smaller battery capacity - which could even be more traditional batteries for small trips - all with very small hydrogen ( plus /gas/propane fall back capability) burning engines which just charge the batteries to extend the range?

All existing technologies with various easy options which will be very able to take advantage of technological break throughs in 'battery' capabilities

 

But that of course would require investment in the nation .. not cronies pockets

"Total milk and cream sales to the EU have slumped 96% in the year to February 2021, and cheese exports were down 65% as a result of Brexit-related trade barriers, according to the Food and Drink Federation. The FDF also found new trading arrangements with Europe had cost exporters more than £1.1bn since January. "

Solid state batteries may be available in the next few years.  UK has always been brilliant at inventing, but not so good at maximising the revenues for the UK's benefit. 

 

I still think the UK has a massive problem with financial services regulation and the risks being taken, which would be very difficult for the UK Government to deal with, if there was another financial crash similar to 2008.  UK has lost some of the financial services business to EU countries, but I would think this is not the high risk business.

Well, when you have an 'ethics Tzar that seems to expect none

and the donations watchdog that seems to just look for an excuse to say all is fine, and even the previously more reputable news outlets just mainly playing along or saying nothing:

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/tory-donations-companies-labour-investigation-b1860204.html

 

“We published information that the Conservative Party had accepted a £10,000 donation from Stridewell Estates in November 2019 (reference CO545454), and a donation from Landcap Development Eversley Ltd in December 2019 (reference CO545455).

“In both cases, these were errors on the part of the commission.

“The party reported to us that it had accepted the donations from different companies, Kirklee Property Company 2 Limited and Landcap Limited respectively."

 

 

yet a quick look at 2 of the companies involved show that they are run by people with the same name, and at superficial glance they seem to be 'investment' companies that are run for a while, then liquidated with debts while another company directed by the same people carry on.

The Financial Times is saying that Johnson's plans to have his £200m yacht built in the UK breaches a WTO agreement that the UK signed eight months ago. Under the Government Procurement Agreement, the construction of civilian ships must be open to global competition.

Yes, Johnson clearly thinks WTO means 'do what you like' and doesn't realise that its a club, and the club membership has rules and requirements, and you can be sanctioned or kicked out the club if you break the rules

Have the GLP been awarded £600,000 in costs as the Guv claimed they would?

They should.

 

But in the end what will be done given Johnson has a number of 'unlawful' judgements against him doesn't he - with sod all to pay and no penalties

Unlawfully proroguing parliament for one - arguably treason.
