Brady amendment passed.  May has to go back to the EU and negotiate on something the EU has said it won't negotiate on.

Time to stock up on tinned food, pasta, toilet paper and drugs.  No Deal just got even more likely.

Candles too. Just saying. I remember the 1970's

Just got this from Pembrokeshire CC - don't know whether to laugh or cry, and horrormirth is so yesterday

New Look For Trade Event
Supplier to buyer
Gaelic Snails, Nitro Coffee, Gluten Free products and Irish Pork Scratchings provide an overseas flavour for next month’s ‘Supplier to Buyer’ trade event.

So wait.  This is the replacement for international trade in the post-Brexit economy?

Only if we can find enough privateers to smuggle the goods for us. And yes this is pretty much what constitutes international trade in my part of Wales for sure.  I was talking to a localish MP the other night and he reminded me that 60% of our Welsh products are exported to the EU and once you get past whats left of our steel production and the remnants of heavy industry,[Airbus wings and aero-engines, that sort of stuff] the balance of our exports is in agricultural produce, with increasing attempts to increase the value added sector. Most of these are small scale family businesses and they are predominantly supported by European structural funds. After Brexit it seems unlikely that there will be much international trade left. We will be scratching around looking for pennies down the back of the sofa, because WTO terms just aren't going to support trade at the same levels as we are currently used to.

New Look For Trade Event
Supplier to buyer
Gaelic Snails, Nitro Coffee, Gluten Free products and Irish Pork Scratchings provide an overseas flavour for next month’s ‘Supplier to Buyer’ trade event.

The annual event, which is South West Wales’s largest trade show for the tourism and hospitality sector takes place on Wednesday, February 6th, in its new location – The Parkhouse Building, Withybush Showground.

‘Supplier to Buyer is a free, regional trade event aimed at the hospitality, leisure and tourism sectors, and is a jointly organised between Pembrokeshire County Council’s Food Development Team and Pembrokeshire Tourism.

Over 60 exhibitors have already booked to attend including 11 from Ireland.

They have been invited as part of the Bucanier Project - BUCANIER (Building Clusters and Networks in Innovation Enterprise and Research).

The project aims to open up trading opportunities between Wales and Ireland and hopefully providing Welsh traders a chance to return to Ireland in the future.

“I am really excited and cannot wait to meet other Welsh businesses and I believe this will be the first step to build long lasting relationships with some Welsh partners,”said  Eva Milka from Gaelic Escargot

Her views are echoed by Matthew Brownie of The Skibbereen Food Company.

“Can't wait to meet our project partners Pembrokeshire County Council in Wales next month, and to showcase my snack products, to all buyers and distributor's at the supplier to buyer trade show,” he said.

“I’m Excited to see new and latest food innovation from other producers in Wales.”

“‘Supplier to Buyer’ is an ideal place to showcase your product range, or any new editions direct to the trade,” said Pembrokeshire County Council’s food development officer Joanne Welch.

“As in previous years there is an excellent array of producers attending that deliver first class, high quality produce and this is a great opportunity for the hospitality, tourism and retail sector to find out what products are available and where they are obtainable.

“Having our friends from the Bucanier Project, including those from across the Irish Sea attend, helps to make this year’s event an incredible opportunity and provides added flavour. The event is all about opening up business opportunities and seeing those business links develop over time.”

Liz Williams, Project Manager of Pembrokeshire Tourism agrees.

“We are delighted to join up with Pembrokeshire County Council’s Food Development Team in bringing together this regional trade event once again.

“It is a great opportunity for hospitality businesses to find new products, and develop interesting offers for their visitors, many of whom are now keen to find something distinctive and local to the area, and of course the ranges available for those with dietary requirements are increasing all the time as well”.

Bucanier is funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Ireland Wales co-operation programme.

How quickly will the black market adapt to a no-deal Brexit, do you think?

I suspect they are orchestrating it as we speak . . .

If the no confidence vote passes, a GE would be called right? Surely in that case they would vote to rescind article 50? Walking into a no deal, with no preparation and no government, it's like this mess wasn't dangerous enough so they poured gasoline on it.

but her emails the Will of the People. Apparently we voted to commit national suicide and Parliament is legally obliged to be the executors of our Will. They seem to have forgotten that traditionally you have to declare yourself to be of "sound mind" in order for a Will to be valid. The lunatics have truly taken over the asylum

Well that was worth the time it took to read. And I know you should never read the comments [well not if you have a nervous disposition] but that, too, was well worth it for this little gem
