    The Brexit Thread

    Yes either fully in or fully out. At present the UK is tied into EU trade deals but has a voice in the EU so can make a difference on all EU issues and are fully involved with security, scientific research and co-operation and all such things. But now that it is leaving the EU it is attempting to partially remain in a sort of customs deal which totally defeats the main reason for leaving. They'll need to negotiate their deal and have to accept deals on the EU terms and it will restrict trade deals they can do elsewhere. On top of that they will then have no say in security issues across Europe, lose funding from the EU and lose other benefits such as use of the critical European communications satellite system. Hardly, worth losing all of that to remain attached to the EU in a trade deal that will be a watered down version on what they have now.

    Well she has to say that with Trump here as she is now in a position of tremendous peril. It is why she is being forced to be so sub-servient to Trump as well short of licking his boots. A trade deal with the US is nirvana to Brexiteers and without that it makes leaving the EU trade-wise pointless. Like I said yesterday there can be no halfway house on the EU. BoJo is a cretin but fully agree with him that you are in or out and not something halfway in between. It is totally daft going any other way.

    No the draws are not done that way. No point in doing it that way either as both Anderson and Isner in any case were not fancied to get to the semis. Anderson beat Federer which was a massive shock and Isner was not expected to beat another big server in Milos Raonic in the previous round.

    Yes I like the Gladiator-esqueness of a fight to the finish but it just impacts too much on too many things. Fitness for following match for the winner and messes schedules up for those waiting to get on court.

    Yes you do have to feel sorry for him but full credit to Anderson. He won with grace and liked his reaction as well. To be honest he was the one pushing more frequently for the break of serve in that final set.

    Anderson finally wins 26-24 after 6 hours 36 minutes. Great match.

    There should be but there is a sordid fascination about this. I'd say play until 12-12 in the fifth then play a tie-break.

    Make that 18-18 now and approaching six hours of play.

    The Brexit Thread

    I am ambivalent about the EU but one thing is crystal clear to me. If the UK is to exit the EU it has to be all out. There is no cherry picking on deals and customs union/single market otherwise why on earth leave at all. The UK is currently in a customs union with the EU but has a big say on all European issues. Should they exit the UK they will have no say in key EU matters that they will want a say in and be left tied into a customs union trading totally on the EU terms and handicapped when discussing deals outwith the EU. It is not rocket science. I liken it to being on a bus journey with the EU being the bus. The UK currently has a comfortable seat there and they are heading in the direction of moving from a seat to travelling on the roof. Lacking safety, security and any control.

    Wouldn't disagree with much of that. For me the key is Gareth Southgate he has got the players playing as a team whereas more talented England squads have played as mavericks with a lack of team ethic. He deserves great credit for that. A much better run than England expected.
