Oh sure, but that's politics, most issues are not permanently solved and even if they are, they are just replaced by new problems. Anyway I just want to win, I'm not looking to abolish the game or end of history. I've never understood the Buddhists. They say they want to abolish suffering. This seems reckless to put it mildly. What would people write about? What would the Poets do? In a world without suffering, there would be no "Game of Thrones", no "Hunger Games", no exciting cop shows about child murder and abduction.

I'm rather fond of Nige and Boris. I'd prefer to have both of them on my team. I felt almost sad for Nige the way he was so comprehensibly turned over by Boris. The problem with Boris is that sooner or later there comes a moment when you and Boris's interests diverge.
But @Rich I have never understood why you, as an eccentric intellectual, would continue to welcome the governance by the Brussels Eurocrats.
Well I just don't buy the the "Eurocrats are the problem" line. The problem is the national politicians of the member countries.
And do you really need all those Polish plumbers and Romanian drivers in the UK ?
Well @Ter I can put my hand on my heart and say I've never had carnal knowledge of a Polish Plumber or a Hungarian Truck Driver, but a number of my friends and intimates are Polish, Czech, Swedish etc. Many friends, acquaintances and people I work with, live and work part time in Spain and Portugal. I believe in loyalty to my friends essential interests. Plus I plan to live part time in Europe myself.
However Britain particularly the South East is full up. there needed to be limitations on free movement for Britain. If I had been Prime Minister, I'd have given the EU 3 months to create and implement a plan, failing that I'd have acted unilaterally. The idea that we needed to leave the EU to control immigration was absurd. The whole Brexit saga has been a way to allow immigration to carry on unhindered and to stop the rise of an anti immigration party like in nearly every other European country.
