    Except that we have already suggested ways of avoiding customs posts, but they don’t want a solution.

    They will have Biden to contend with if they upset the Good Friday Agreement.

    Oh, goody - another end of year Brexit deadline! This should make for a lot more falling out between family and friends!

    This wouldn’t have happened had they been imprisoned for breaching orders, until such time as this went to trial.

    We are far too soft with disrupters in this country. This needs to change, and soon, before we get copy cat protests.

    Could it be that we have finally cracked Covid without the need for a plan B?

    We were very close to a trade deal with Trump, but as for how much it was worth to us, I really don’t know!

    We might be better off doing this item by item, just as we have done with US trade relating to beef and sheepies.

    The live channels on the Roku come up with a tap on the live TV logo. I don’t see that as being a problem.

    Where Sky Glass is superior is with its access to the Sky Q EPG, which I agree is impressive. However, that does not sway me, but that’s probably…

    I am definitely not convinced by Sky Glass. It’s not the Best Buy.

    There is no comparison with Roku TV, which has access to a huge number of streamers compared to the limited number available on Glass, and the only advantage I can see is that you can…

    You've got to laugh! Electric cars are more of a problem than they are worth. Woe betide any of these delegates if they want to use their vehicles to get to London before, during or after the summit. The cars will conk out well before Preston!

    This is why…

    I think most people have accepted Brexit now, whichever way they voted at the referendum.

    If the Russians have interfered in some way, it would be through influencers and the spreading of 'fake news', but we live in a mature democracy, and the population…

    Personally, I would have discharged the gun out of harm’s way before using it on set.

    I understand that some of the staff had walked out hours earlier because of the lack of safety measures in place.

    Yes, I agree. They need to ditch the linear offering.

    As far as My5 is concerned, I shouldn’t think that many people accessed the ‘Channels’ section. They should have put all their channels, including the Channel 5 stuff, on the first screen in, so…

    They’ve probably given up on these streamers due to lack of interest. I doubt that many people were even aware of them, let alone watched them.

    To be honest, I can’t see Pluto surviving much longer in this country.

    I think most would agree that taking illegal drugs is far more dangerous than alcohol or medicinal drugs. There is really no comparison.
