A questionable butterfly

You're having a laugh.  It is the EU that has not negotiated, Brussels considers the EU project to be sacrosanct will not allow anything to undermine that idealogy.  It's why after two years we are barely any further forward.  The only option is for a no-deal exit, a negotiated withdrawal is impossible.  It would help if we had a PM who believes in Brexit.

What do you consider to be legit news sources, The Guardian, the BBC?  The link I quoted came from a respected blogger who has as large online following.  There was a widespread and sustained campaign across Europe and the wider world against the EU directive, that must tell you something about the concerns of this meddling.

These people are still needed while May is doing her best to undermine Brexit, her Chequers deal is a sham, this is what happens when you put a Remainer in charge of pretending to leave the EU.

Articles 11 and 13 were today passed by the EU parliament, be prepared for big changes in the way the internet operates.  The inventor of the internet, Britain's Tim Berners-Lee, has campaigned against these changes, so I would hardly describe it as "desperate".

The European Parliament is tomorrow voting on a proposal that would affect virtually every website, including this one .  If the proposal passes it will be illegal to link to other websites without first obtaining permission, and possibly having to pay for the privilege of linking to the site. This transport blogger explains the situation: ...
