The Times' view of Suella Braverman, our Attorney General (and it pretty much sums her up -- she's one of the least capable of a very mediocre cabinet, and should never have been given a senior legal job)

Watching an English 20 something I know, what should ordinarily be reasonably employed (in 1960s) with a HMG employer about to become homeless due to a 35% rent increase on a place she didn't heat over last winter while managing on one meal a day being all she could afford.

I simply don't understand how the SNP think it would work with an independent Scotland as part of the single market, with England and Wales outside it. You'd need Dover/Calais style documentation and customs checks at the border, particularly for moving food and drink between the two jurisdictions.



It would play havoc with the supermarkets' distribution system, and forget nipping across the border to do your weekly supermarket shop.

The rules of of World Trade Organisation are now the third international law regime the government of the United Kingdom want to be free from this week – and it is still only Thursday lunchtime.

US gas prices in US dollars are also inflated over the last time oil was this high, so it's not just Brexit, it's also greed.

I filled up my car today in NL: € 2.29 per liter, so I agree with Argent, it is mainly greed at work not Brexit.
Ah well.... half a liter of German weizen beer is still more expensive on a terrace.
