On a serious note, the interest rates went up in the UK up to a 0.75% - Mark Carney (Bank of England Governor) said that whatever happens — EU or no EU — we have the capacity to raise the rates to 2% if needed.

To me — that means the exit. Noone would bother raising the rates otherwise.

What do you think — from the side? Looking at all this — our fight with EU, etc. What are your predictions?

Really? I don't like, not particularly. I am really a proper Anglophile in that sense. With many Russians Europe is an obsession, Paris especially. Somehow, the Russians overrate the French. I visited France zillions of times — not just Paris or Nice or Normandy — I won't go into it, but I have been to a lot of places there. France doesn't stand a chance against England, Paris — shithole compared to London.

Yeah, wait and see. I am editing my post. Just so fed up with Brexit . The worst thing about it is continuous prolonged uncertainty, of which the end is nigh.

The latest

Accept Chequers… or it's no deal on Brexit: PM issues an ultimatum to the French as cracks show in EU's resolve

I reckon that with May as leader we are not going to get anywhere, it will carry on like this — neither here, nor there — all the way up until March 2019, at which point we will crash out of the EU with no deal. The Tory party should change the leader, a lot of people think it should be either Boris or Jacob Rees -Mogg.

Alina is prettier than Evgenia in real life, but on the ice Evgenia looks better and prettier, because she is just that bit more artistic. In real life she is far from pretty unfortunately. I just looked it up.
But who cares? They are both great, both represent Russia and both are champions.

England is lagging way behind in figure skating.

Grin (25771),

I am so effed after yesterday's run, it's unreal. Thank God the kids are not home (they are with my parents, they are taking them to the British Museum today and the Science Museum — we went there multiple times, but my kids love it -in the Science Museum there are playrooms for kids, where they can do experiments, etc. — themselves. My littlest — Daniel — loves all that stuff. I think he will go down that route when he grows up — science. My husband's first degree was in Molecular Biology. And when John was little — he wrote a book about fish and aquariums etc. — marine aquariums, fish diseases, etc. He co authed (was one of the authors) the book and it was published, he was just a kid back then himself).
Just putting my feet up and watching the telly today — so quiet at home without the kids and without John — he is playing golf on Sundays with his mates, then they go to the pub, etc.

Just reading the forum — I like this thread. https://www.politforums.net/internal/1533421774....

I like Russians on this forum here who are in the opposition to the current system. «Patriotism» in Russia — the whole meaning of it is totally discredited. In today's Russia all it means is loyalty to the authorities.

I am gonna put a song on — it's about Vincent Van Gogh. One of my favourite songs of all time — a lot of the paintings in the video are in the National Gallery here, in London.

May be it wouldn't be best possible deal for the UK, but I think you'll make it.

If you and your kids like museums, you should visit Hermitage museum in Saint Petersburg.

Ensoo Lim from Korea. She bombed her free skate, I was sad about it a bit.

And some funny moment, one of the skaters choose Evgenia's free skate music (Anna Karenina). It looked like a parody.
What was she thinking? If you choose this music people will inevitably start to compare …
