What the British Say What the British mean
22. I might join you later I’m not leaving the house today unless it’s on fire
23. Excuse me, sorry, is anyone sitting here? You have three seconds to move your bag before I end you.
24. Not to worry I will never forget this
25. Bit wet out there You’re going to need a snorkel because it’s absolutely pissing it down.
26. Ending an email with “Thanks” A warning that you’re perilously close to losing your temper
27. Right then, I suppose I really should start thinking about possibly making a move Bye
28. It’s fine It really could not possibly get any worse, but no doubt it will do
29. Perfect Well that’s that ruined then
30. A bit of a pickle A catastrophically bad situation with potentially fatal consequences
31. Not too bad, actually I’m probably the happiest I’ve ever been
32. Honestly, it doesn’t matter Nothing has ever mattered more than this
33. You’ve caught the sun You look like you’ve been swimming in a volcano
34. That’s certainly one way of looking at it That’s certainly the wrong way of looking at it
35. If you say so I’m afraid that what you’re saying is the height of idiocy
36. With all due respect You have absolutely no idea what you’re  talking about
37. Saying “you’re welcome” as quietly as possible to people that don’t say thank you Used as a form of punishment
38. Meanings of “I beg your pardon” 1. I didn’t hear you 2. I apologise 3. What you’re saying is making me absolutely livid
39. It could be worse It couldn’t possibly be any worse
40. Each to their own You’re wrong, but never mind
41. Pop round anytime Please stay away from my house
42 I’m just popping out for lunch, does anyone want anything? I’m getting my own lunch now, please remain silent
43. No no, honestly, my fault It was exceedingly your fault and we both know it
44. No yeah that’s very interesting You are boring me to death
45. Just whenever you get a minute Now
46 No harm done You have caused complete and utter chaos
47. I’m sure it’ll be fine I fully expect the situation to deteriorate rapidly
48. Sorry, I think you might  have dropped something You have definitely dropped that specific item

Can any British in the audience confirm this? :winking_tongue

Maybe they could try with a "shutdown"? Seems to work well for Trump.  :winking_tongue

The German government is prepared for a No-deal scenario (Süddeutsche). Are you surprised?

No. I knew. Been talked about for weeks.
When I said "exit from Brexit?", I was wondering what the Brits will do...

Let's face the truth...everything has to come to an end.

When we both of us knew how the end always is, how the end always is...

Trouble is that Mrs May managed to get through the "vote of no confidence". Now she thinks it's her "duty" to lead the UK through Brexit. A new "deal" with the EU seems unrealistic, so what now?  :1f633:
Exit from Brexit? Anyone heard any practicable solutions?

The German government is prepared for a No-deal scenario (Süddeutsche). Are you surprised?
I'm not, to be honest. Let's face the truth...everything has to come to an end.

The prime minister’s catalogue of errors led us to this point.
Now we face paralysis and humiliation
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/jan/15/defeat-may-errors
"This has been Britain’s European story, repeatedly seeing what was a project of peace, designed to end centuries of bloodshed, as a scam designed to swindle the Brits of their money...wherever you choose the starting point, the end point is clear enough. It ends like this, in the sight of a parliament paralysed by indecision, still unable to embrace Europe – but just as unable to break away. And in the spectacle of a country lost and adrift."
