    And so Bercow now picks his mates to speak.

    Has to go.
    I can explain it to you, but I canít understand it for you.

    Not really. If they are coming in then no one is bothered and if going out then the only thing that can be done is to wave good bye.

    Well the funny thing is somebody has been collecting it since the late 1990's.
    This is a fight between the establishment with its power to create false impressions and the people's right of democracy.One vote one person.

    The UK doesn’t technically have a set limit on how much you can send overseas, but both the FCA and HMRC will monitor your transfers for illegal activity. You’ll only run into a barrier if there are reasonable grounds for concern that your transfers are in aid of money laundering or tax avoidance.

    That didn't really go well, did it?
    The rest of this week is going to just get worse. They didn't want an election, but Boris warned them. They want to force their no deal through before the FTPA gets voted on to dissolve parliament.
    If they are successful we'll still be in on 1st November and there will be chaos, politically, and I suspect, in the streets.

    Well, they say they do, but their really isn't the staff to keep an eye on things. The reason that folk think they are dealing with a call centre when they ring HMRC is because they might as well be. They are often on short term contracts and all the staff know is whatever is on the script in front of them. Every second zillions of pounds are transferred from UK banks to Bongo Bongo land and back again. It is impossible to track or halt it.

    Polls are showing that the Conservatives have a 12 to 14 point lead, no wonder Wurzel doesn’t want to test it with a GE.

    Thinking about it, there are many defectors like Soubry who know they are on a sticky wicket also.
