  1. Honda Swindon closes: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-wiltshire-57987601 "The Swindon factory was world-class but because we chose to pull out of Europe, which was the most important market to Honda, they chose to stick with America and Japan. "Brexit was the straw that broke the camel's back."
  2. What time was that? And can you show that international law? No, you can't, because it's nothing more than a figment of your imagination! Total codswallop! Indeed!
  3. There is plenty of logic, the chance of success for wanna-be asylum seekers has increased significantly. Schengen has been going for decades, it is not new. David Cameron for one, who stated that Brexit may lead to the need for migrant camps to be setup in Kent! Two days ago you claimed the "first safe country" rule was part of the Geneva convention... ...so much for ignorance and making yourself look silly! A great idea then... turns out it's EU legislation, not so keen now
  4. So... the recent upswing is a result of Schengen, in place for decades, but those pesky criminals only just cottoned on when the UK left the EU? Sounds plausible... not! This was, of course, another one of those "Project Reality" predictions made before the vote! I have no idea how useful it is, neither do you, but one thing is certain... they wouldn't be going back to France! Either way, as a result of your vote, the "first safe country" requirement no longer applies to migrants or asylum seekers entering the UK from the EU.
  5. Aye, that upswing in boats since the UK left the EU... is just a coincidence Sadly, you voted to remove the UK from the legislation that would have made that even a remote legal possibility.
  6. The vast majority of them do stay in France or Germany. In a way he has, he can no longer be returned to the "first safe country" he entered, and his chances of succeeding in his asylum bid have risen significantly! In part, thanks to Farage!
  7. Nope, it's absolutely true! The ability to return refugee's to the first safe country falls under the Dublin Regulation... EU law https://fullfact.org/immigration/refugees-first-safe-country/ "Under the Geneva Convention refugees should seek refuge in the first safe country they come to." Incorrect! There is no requirement under international law for anyone claiming asylum to do so in the first safe country. A view consistently upheld in UK courts. They are also protected from prosecution for illegal entry! They can still claim asylum, might not succeed, but they can't be sent back to their first safe country anymore. As before, you voted to take the UK out of the legislation that would have allowed any return to France.
  8. ... or, alternatively, that escalation might be because migrants now know they can't be sent back to the first safe country from the UK any more, since that is an EU construct. "First safe country" is EU law. You explicitly voted to reject those rules!
  9. Nope, the Maastricht Treaty was the mechanism by which the removal of border posts was possible. It gave the Republic of Ireland a role in the governance of Northern Ireland and as such went down like a lead balloon with unionists. Nah, the egg is most definitely all over your face on this one! Made possible by the Maastricht Treaty!
  10. Nonsense! The GFA was only possible, because of the Maastricht Treaty.
  11. The Maastricht Treaty, more than anything else, was the catalyst that led to peace in NI!
  12. Indeed, which is why the big six leading retailers, representing over 75% of NI's grocery market, have just threatened to move their supply chains from the UK to the EU
  13. All my Freeview HD channels vanished yesterday and, as yet, have not returned. Anyone else seeing this?
  14. They're not enough on their own. Floaters/undecided voters make the difference, they're not the MAGA crowd. I don't think Trump will run, he won't like to chance being humiliated again. I just don't see it happening. Time will tell.
  15. Does it? Like he's going to be re-instated in August? https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/trump-supporters-rally-ohio-cnn-b1875064.html I doubt he'll run, 'cos he won't win. That boat has sailed. https://thehill.com/homenews/media/560926-trump-ranked-fourth-from-worst-in-c-spans-2021-presidential-rankings
