You must be one of those tantric types the enjoy delayed gratification if you find such joy in something that has yet to happen.

Also, it's tying fyi, tieing is not in use around the world.

Its a legit English word, even if its a bit old school for you and your MXit generation...

Ah we're back on the failed patronising attempts very early, what's the matter? You ran out of coherent arguments before sunrise?

tieing is not "old school" it's use has always been uncommon, and through lack of use "legit" English words are eventually removed from dictionaries, hence, it is tying. "tieing" has already been removed from the Oxford English dictionary, I guess they're just a bunch of MXit idiots ... :sneaky:

Its still in dictionaries son... so its legit... uncommon doesn't mean anything other than its not used extensively.

And much to your dismay the OED is not the only dictionary out there...

But yeah, its fun to be patronising because you get shyte wrong so often and then double down on the stupidity...

It is no longer in "the" dictionary, or do you believe Urban Dictionary has the same authority as the Oxford English dictionary ... :rolleyes:

Cost of Brexit to UK economy running at £40bn a year – Bank rate-setter

The cost of Brexit to the British economy is running at £40bn a year and a damaging no-deal scenario could force an emergency cut in interest rates, according to a Bank of England rate-setter.

Gertjan Vlieghe, a member of the Bank’s monetary policy committee, said that since the vote in June 2016, the economy had lost about 2% of GDP compared with a scenario where there had been no significant domestic economic events.

The cost to Britain is currently £40bn a year, or about £800m a week of lost income, he said.

Obviously Hamish needs to remember Brexiteer policy.
So stating multiple times some dictionaries do not contain the word and specifically Oxford (the standard for British English alongside Chambers and Collins ... fyi out of the three only Collins has it and specifically shows at as an Americanism) does not have it in your mind is the same as saying no dictionaries contain it? :sneaky:

I must admit I find it amusing that the "evidence" comes from an American dictionary of all things :giggle:

The best the poms can hope for is a fast brexit followed by an even faster use of their shale gas.

More Brexit “good news”.

BMI Regional partly blames Brexit as it ceases operations

UK operator BMI Regional has become the latest casualty of the pressure on European airlines, with its decision to cease operations and file for administration.

The company is blaming the uncertainty regarding the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union for contributing to its demise.

All flights have been cancelled, effective 16 February.

The carrier is also citing the UK’s impending withdrawal from the European Union as an influencing factor.

“Current trading and future prospects have…been seriously affected by the uncertainty created by the ‘Brexit’ process,” it says.

It says this has resulted in an “inability to secure valuable flying contracts” in Europe as well as a “lack of confidence” in the airline’s ability to continue operating between European cities.

BMI Regional’s shareholders have been unable to continue their financial support for the carrier, the company says.

“We sincerely regret that this course of action has become the only option open to us but the challenges, particularly those created by Brexit, have proven to be insurmountable,” it states.

According to some posters Brexit is all good news and unicorns, so this has to just be a special type of good news ;)
If your entire business depends on a specific inter governmental arrangement to remain in place, then f-you.

This is excellent news, capitalism returning slowly where graft has been the order of the day.

yeah that last nissan thing was blamed on brexit too, meanwhile it was whole lot of other factors that are to blame. i had a quick look at this airline and it seemed to be half empty flights with not even a million passengers. compared to other airlines it wasnt doing to great.

it almost like anything is now blamed on brexit and everything would be good news and unicorns if brexit never happens. which is obvious rubbish.
