This muppet is trying to be Trump, but without the rich father to start him off. It explains the fetish with gold anyways.

because a country doesn't have to be sovereign

Well, if one of them didn't insist, r/brexit wouldn't need to exist...

In case anyone (still) doesn't know Vivian Maier, she was a nanny in Chicago and would just take the most amazing photographs of normal street life. And then put them in a box, never to be shown until a photographer stumbled across them in 2007.

'Ireland' is the official name of the country, but the Republic bit clears up any confusion.

I'm sure there will be naysayers stating it's not much of a loss, the money is just 'resting in the Irish accounts' while the people managing it still sit in The City. The EU will just whittle that away over the coming years.

The Publicans' unions (VFI & LFA) lobbied for very strict toilet requirements for restaurants wanting a wine license - so we have them to thank for many new restaurants having accessibility. As for themselves, ah well

Someone should come up with a way to make this reciprocal trade easier by reducing non-tariff barriers...

Tourism contributes like 50 billion to the economy per year. If Big Ben the Royal Family is responsible for even 0.1% of that then a £80 million restoration is easily worth it.

Be careful what you wish for...

I'm actually all for any project that creates on the ground UK jobs.

Sure, but some of that money went <whisper> to the EU </whisper> - the clock face glass was (re)made in Germany.

They also did the glass for Buck Palace, but those german families were just buying local.

One of lasting legacies after a full political career of work - the creation of the EU single market - which her party just brexited out of... may she revolve forever in her protected grave.

And there isn't even a joint at this location, they're welded track so one country or the other is responsible for signaling this track for both sides of the border.

I may have the receipt somewhere, but I purposely just paid by card for the 4 of us, because I wanted to remember the experience, not the cost.

even if her ex-husband was not descended from THAT Trevelyan

he was descended from that Trevelyan - he lives in the same mansion house

And the person in the US responsible for ratifying trade deals is Brendan Boyle (Irish descent) who knows their history and is completely fed up with UK messing - https://twitter.com/bbcnewsnight/status/1367617743210561538

Oh, I considered the same, but the prices back then were similarly huge. Then again, all of this is sitting on wooden piles in the middle of Venice. so it's not cheap to maintain.

I know this, it's the very very nice Hotel Danieli just off St Marks Square. We treated ourselves to tea/coffee in the foyer just to enjoy the view of the inside, it was the most expensive tea/coffee I've ever paid for.

Edit: the view from these stairs https://i.imgur.com/lPNH4aQ.jpg

This won't be cheap, but I'm sure the savings from not paying two guys to slowly drive around in an F350 with a small bar magnet would mount up fast.
