The ranges are much higher than published which is the crux of the matter.

The increased coverage and standoff ranges give the han planners real grief.

Their risk has increased manifold and their defensive measures and counters have gotten that much costlier.

It seems the Labor party is going to split. 7 lawmakers have resigned. Corbyn is a mixture of Communist and anarchist.

Super!

That pompous idiot's tweet on Phulwama was nauseating.

I hope the Labour splits under him. That would be Karma.

Honda will be shutting down their UK plant and either move the production to Japan (in view of the EU-Japan free trade deal) or set up a plant somewhere in Eastern Europe.

Honda has a manufacturing base in India, hope we can leverage this as well.

chicken come home to roost?

While international law forbids nations from making people stateless, Javid may argue that Begum can apply for Bangladeshi citizenship, despite her saying she has never visited the country. Human rights lawyer Shoaib Khan said that even if the decision to revoke Begum’s citizenship turns out to be legal, it should never have been taken. He told: ‘She was radicalised in the UK and this country must take responsibility for that. In the 21st century, there should be no tolerance for medieval punishments like exile. ‘She has never been to Bangladesh, it seems, and should not be their responsibility. The British Government should take responsibility for its people and fulfil the duties that come with that. ‘Also, the only way we can prevent her from causing any harm to the UK is by having her here where we can monitor her.

Not on the list of priorities of the CPS or the Met to pursue prosecution. We desperately need an EU style extradition arrangement with the UK post-Brexit trade deal (if some sanity prevails). Also after Priti Patel's exit from cabinet, there aren't many to bat for Swades.

squeeze them in ways that hurts them very badly.

we have had enough schitt from their BBC, MPs and NGOs and even their general public.

All of them have shown extreme contempt for India and Indians since even before 1947.

for a start, just walk away from the commonwealth.

I agree with your sentiment about the BBC ( we all hate them for forcing us to pay them). The govt is in mired in a deep hole they can't get themselves out of in the face of the deadlock in HoC. India and an economic fugitive is last on the list when knife crime is the highest in over a decade and CPS does not have the resources to prosecute. Wait it out till summer when 'no deal' will force them to come to the negotiating table for a trade deal.

https://www.politico.eu/article/brexit- ... -violence/

LONDON — The failure to secure a deal to leave the European Union may lead to violence on British streets, according to a senior British lawmaker.David Gauke, the U.K.'s secretary of state for justice, said a no-deal Brexit would be a disaster for the country, including the immediate ending of U.K.-EU cooperation on vital law enforcement issues."In the worst-case scenario if we had significant difficulties with food supplies no one is going to be left starving but if there are empty shelves, can that result in violence and more criminal cases?" he said in an interview with the Times published Saturday. "Of course it can.”The British cabinet minister added that he believes Prime Minister Theresa May will not be able to get her Brexit deal through parliament during a vital vote next week, and said he backs delaying Brexit beyond the March 29 deadline so that an agreement with the EU can be reached.

this simply means that vijay mallaya's extradition becomes very much harder now as it may go to the eu courts.

we need to ram both the eu and the uk in all economic agreements and trade deals until they listen to our concerns rather than take some pseudo moral high ground as they took in the eyetalian marine case where white lives are valued higher than brown ones and blood money payment agreements with the MURDERED natives' families started with the phrase "in the name of christ"

these dickheads still think that the natives can be bought off for some beads and trinkets.

the uk extradition process in time and cost is designed to provide max relief to the legions of HNI thieves and absconders who have parked themselves and the loot there.

her majesty's govt takes good care of them - EXCEPT if massa leans on them to recover its own absconders.

UK is 13 days away from a no-deal brexit. may's vote failed 3rd time, a 4th is planned next week.

I no longer know or keep track of what the huha is about. it seems likely EU will grant an extention till late june to sort the mess out with another UK general election and a freshly mandated govt.

london ofcourse benefits hugely from EU and is anti-brexit, but I guess the rural britishers left out of the london-centric gravy train do not think so.

I don't think the UKstani MP's will allow a no-deal brexit. The chaos that would ensue would be tremendous. The stage is probably being set to dump the whole brexit plan completely. People will be up in arms but the current government's days are numbered anyway so they don't really care.

Brexit means UQ officially becomes the Pakistan of Europe. Even after all these shenanigans, there will be no Brexit or it will be BRINO. The problem is the MPs here are clueless. The English MPs still dont get it. The Irish identify themselves are Irish, Scots as Scottish. Only English underclass who used to call themselves British by going for Brexit have stated they are English first then British pretty much like the other 3 nations in the UQ. The loss of empire still rankles them and inspite of the Indian and Russian soldiers winning the war against Hitler and Britain claiming they won the war, they have seen the defeated axis powers - Germany and Japan- having better economies, better quality of lives than the nations constituting the UQ. The empire taught Brits one thing- they are either on the top as rulers or they are being ruled. The easy target for the ills that plague British economy finds an easy scapegoat in EU. If you ask a EU national how much of local law is influenced by EU, the answer might be closer to 10%. If you ask an ordinary Brit, they will claim 40% or may be more. With EU money, Cornwall remains less poor than parts of Romania. Without EU money, it wont take long for the people to realise they are truly stuffed. If there is a 2nd referendum, then there will be even bigger support for Leave. But the votes will be rigged. 100%. India should interfere in these elections and send observers.

dailymail.co.uk

The House of Commons rejected all four alternative Brexit plans in another series of votes last night, leaving Britain with no clear plan just 10 days before a possible cliff-edge exit.

MPs rejected a customs union and a Norway-style agreement, dealing a blow to Remainer hopes of a soft Brexit, and also voted against a second referendum.

The customs union plan proposed by longstanding Tory Europhile Kenneth Clarke was closest to victory - losing by just three votes, 276 to 273.

But MPs have now rejected 12 'indicative vote' motions and approved none, after trouncing Theresa May's withdrawal agreement three times

the smug london financial crowd with their global clients (lot of crooks) and contacts must be ready with a plan-B like keeping some outpost on EU.
they always have a plan B. they wont lose a penny on this.

the british working class may take a hit, but in recent years many are decamping for canada and australia if they can.
