AOB – January 2019

16 January 2019

The shambles that is Brexit:

The vote against the UK’s PM’s Brexit plan: 432-202.

Yet the UK government will win the no-confidence vote tonight.

The so-called meaningful vote was meaningless. Nothing changed.


Parliament does not want No-Deal

But Parliament has not said what it does want – only that it does not want Mrs May’s deal.

And there are 70 days to go until 29 March – when there may by default be a no deal exit.

Alex left yesterday after five nights in Chiang. Great to spend some time with him….he has a huge year ahead of him – life changing!

We did not stay away this year – just hung out on coffee shops – a visit to my office – drives to The Clifford and Lamphun etc. Relaxed.

Very enjoyable.

Welcome to a New Year. Though it does not feel so different from the old year.

We can back to Chiang Mai on the morning of 30th December. The flights from London via Doha were on Qatar Airways – on time and decent flights. Just 5hrs 20 minutes from Doha. Quick!

New Year’s Eve was spent on our roof-top. Just two of us. Nice, sensible, quiet way to see in the new year.
