Nice quiet place. A good diving spot too, if you don't mind voracious black fish (they took a mole on my leg for food and attacked me!) and US marines in the water.

You do choose the weirdest places. Did they give you asylum?

Take note, EU

Regulations being laid in Parliament on Thursday set out the new rules for when the transition period ends, which treat EU and non-EU citizens the same.
The new rules mean from 1 January:
  • Any EU citizen sentenced to at least a year in prison will be barred
  • EU citizens who have committed any criminal offence in the past year could also be barred
  • EU citizens could also be banned if they were sentenced to less than a year in jail, with officials reviewing their full criminal history and links to the UK
  • Offenders who have not served a prison sentence could still be barred if there is evidence they are “persistent” criminals, they cause “serious harm” or their presence in the UK is not “conducive to the public good”

But, in all fairness, it would also include a lot of natives, who are presumably exempt. I’m just an innocent bystander, so will not presume to name names.

Baby steps. When we get a proper Conservative government they’ll all be shipped off to the colonies like in the good old days.

Let's hope they get a fair trial.

In the “union of bad hair” category, BJ is evidently waiting for Trump to win before going full on his dream no-deal Brexit. He may not have got the memo that this could take weeks, accidentally blowing through his year-end deadline. But, whatever.
