The Consequences of Brexit (part 3)

Recommended Posts

No. They're all there in the thread and I find it unlikely you've forgotten. You say they don't hold water. That means you disagree.

No, it means that they fail to pass scrutiny.

That's fine. But the reasons exist whether you agree with them or not.

List them then.

Why has May been so quiet?

 

Is it because she 'forgot' about Gibraltar in her letter, despite being explicitly asked to?

 

You mean sources close to Fabian Picardo suggest that he asked but was ignored? I cant see why it needed a mention as Gibraltar is part of the UK and not negotiable till after Brexit. It changes nothing because Spain would have a veto over any trade deal anyway and only after we have left.

Whether they pass your "scrutiny' or not they exist. This line of discussion is useless.

As mentioned in previous posts. We've got so many clients advancing plans for Paris and Dublin it is difficult to cope. Not just financial services either. Loads of companies are needing a HQ in the EU and that can't be the UK any more.

So far you're looking at maybe some institutions setting up small satellite offices inside the EU to facilitate future EU business. That's a world away from actually shifting themselves from London to elsewhere.

Stop clutching at straws.

We are back in the era of European wars now.

We have to show johnny foreigner what kind of people we are, and that is what Lord Howard says we must do.

A few ships with 32 pounders aboard will soon put them in their place.

Where is Drakes Drum when you need it? :suspect:

It was Anne Widicome who said of Howard "there was something of the night about him"

Ah you work at our company do you? Drop by for a coffee.

 

Nope, some of this is massive.

Even Howard himself seems to have had second thoughts. On Channel 4 News last night, asked if he was “seriously suggesting” war with Spain, he replied: “Of course not.” But he did add: “I can see no harm in reminding them what kind of people we are.”:hihi:

I don't know exactly what you do. I've always forecast some creative destruction from Brexit. Winners and losers. That's the world.

What is part of the UK, is Scotland.

 

The interview of Alfonso Dastis, the current Spanish Foreign Secretary, in El Pais at the weekend gave Sturgeon a nice boost in that regard: there will not be any veto from Spain against an independent Scotland joining the EU.

 

Given Datis' position, that makes it the official line of the Spanish government.

 

That whole Spanish veto Gibraltar thing is an inconsequential side-show. The real show is the post-Brexit EU-UK trade relationship: May & Davis wouldn't bat an eyelid at passing 40,000 Gibraltese under the economic bus wheels for the sake of 60m Brits.

 

And for all of Michael Howard's dumbtastic testiculating about it, didn't Picardo just know it, in that interview with BBCOne Saturday morning.
