Saw yesterday that Aldi at least have found an answer to the problem of importing English Cheddar. They now have Irish Cheddar instead!

Both the Coop and Migros in Nyon again have Cathedral Cheddar. Migros has their own 'name brand' Cheddar back on the shelves.

Boris isn't very good at this politics stuff is he? Picking a fight with someone who has you by the b*lls is not really very smart.

Migros has a few assortments of Cheddar waxed rolls (round cheddar pieces in wax). One of them is Cheddar with whisky - delicious. It's like a dessert.

Finally. I hope everyone here on EF will make peace with Brexit. And EU. And Farage......(maybe even erect the guy a statue and start organising pilgrimages).

Good luck, folks.

Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

No way, not for the first, and not with the last - for 100% sure. Brexit is an unmitigated disaster on every single front- how can you 'make peace with it' - and certainly not in Ireland/NI. As for Farage, no, no and more no- but he is a goner and irrelevance now.

That's right the 6th May marks the elections for the Scottish Parliament with the SNP riding the
'crest of the wave' on Scottish resentment to an unrepresentative Tory government
in Westminster.
With the question of Indyref2 being very much in the air.

The Economist video - Scottish Independence, could Britain break up ?

Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Does anybody think the way Brexit has been handled will have a big impact on the 6th May local elections?
Polls are showing the Tories down but still the leading party by a wide margin.

I think Tory voters are generally happy with how BREXIT was done, they got what they voted for.

Although most Scots want nothing to do with the Tories and haven't a prayer of making any headway
in the Scottish elections.

Actually NO, they did not- they know it, I know it, and you certainly know it too.

The latest polls are believed to be impacted by the current wave of sleeze plus Boris's pile the bodies up comments. I doubt if Brexit is a significant issue right now, particularly not for local elections. With the possible exception of Scotland.

How could you possibly know? I remember you saying everyone you knew was going to vote against the Conservatives at the last election!

Simple: accept that you don't have any influence over it. Oder ?

Seriously, how do we make peace with things we can't control? I know your feelings and I agree on most parts, but Brexit is done and over IMHO. As for this thread and the topic itself, literally everything that we could have said (in a constructive way), was said.
Ready to be proved wrong, but I won't comment anymore.
