(Cameron) if he hadn't called the Brexit referendum they'd still love him.
Mind you, if he hadn't called the Brexit referendum he might still be Prime Minister.

If he was still PM he wouldn't have had the opportunity to earn(?) those Greensill millions.

How are Leavers spinning the roaming charges? Claiming it's people own fault for leaving the fair island of roast beef and Yorkshire pudding?

Not sure how they can spin the untreated sewage. I'm sure they'll try though, although it doesn't seem to be in the media much.

If I'm understanding it right, the sewage problem is worse than the reports have said because if the filter beds don't have the necessary ferric sulphate then they will become damaged and getting them back into a usable state will be much more difficult.

the more I read about this sewage problem, the more it stinks.

I liked this but that missing "s" was driving me insane. Sorry.

Marks & Spencer has said it is closing 11 of its French stores because of problems supplying them with fresh and chilled foods since Brexit.

Not sure how many jobs per store that is but it's not great news for the French jobs market. I'm sure that job losses in France will be seen as a victory by some Leavers.

   Boris Johnson’s government has promised it will legislate to allow British traders to sell their wares in pounds and ounces, rather than grammes and kilos, as it unveiled plans to seek a deregulatory dividend from Brexit.

I'll take a rod, three chains and a inch of rope my good man, and if you don't help me, I'll take you to BREXIT COURT

The crown stamp back on pint glasses. Sorry, 'proudly adorning' (according to the Telegraph) pint glasses.

There was absolutely nothing stopping UK pint glasses having the crown stamp (in addition to a CE mark) up until this point. Who are these people?

And the old phosphorescent paint that was full of radioactive material to get stuff glowing like in the old days.

Just get Timex done.

5.  We have a national shortage of Weights and Measures Inspectors.  Are you going to pay for new inspectors to be trained (which currently takes 6 years)?

Might do this if they offer

I reckon all the official business will still be done in metric, and essentially nothing will change, except butchers and market traders will be allowed to write imperial measurements in marker on those high-vis star-shaped labels, without being required to display the metric equivalent (which everything will still be based on). In that "specific and limited" sense, the idea could be carried out without really doing anything, and cranky old gits will feel like they finally got one over on Fritz.

Don't most market traders just do fixed price bowls these days anyway or is that just a London thing?

6 years to learn how to read some scales or a measuring jug?

I would love to be HM Inspector of Weights and Measures though. Or boobs.

Yeah, it'd be good I reckon.

"Excuse me, that's a pound is it?"
"Hi there, here to check your pounds"

Yeah, could do that.

I don't even know what a pound is really. Apart from large scale having to translate stupid American weightlifting feats of strength into real understandable measurements.

Can fully imagine boob inspector is nowhere near as glamorous as it sounds. Bit like how window cleaner is mainly just cleaning windows despite what those 70s advertorials promised.
