Consequences of Brexit [part 7] Read first post before posting

 Let me make this perfectly clear - any personal attacks will get you a suspension. The moderating team is not going to continually issue warnings. If you cannot remain civil and post within forum rules then do not bother to contribute.

Come off it, Brexiteers scurried away when it was time to deliver on their promises, those that didn't simply failed to (in David Davis' case) turn up half the time, remember to bring a pen, or do even the most basic due dilligence.

 

Davis and his impact assements that proclaim boats sail on water and ports are near the coast fit for a child, through Goves "we're sick of experts" and Boris "f*** business", on to Fox's "easiest trade deals in history" ending up with Raab's "didn't understand the importance of Dover"!

 

All have been in key positions and all have failed miserably both in ability and delivery, no-one had to scupper them, they did it all on their own!

 

None of them had the power to do anything.

They wont be bothered, they will just blame everybody else, probably the remainers.

Came to this conclusion ages ago. All the consequences will be the fault of remainers and the EU.

 

When some leavers said they would happily lose their jobs, and were happy to see their kids’ lose their jobs too if it meant leaving the EU they really meant it.

 

Nothing will be bad enough to shake them away from this. They passionately want Brexit even though Farage - who should not what it is - can’t even tell them what it is.

David Davies absolutely did and screwed it up royally. He was unprepared, unrealistic, out of his depth and burnt through 18 months of negotiating time. No wonder May took the reigns.

Brexiteers were in-charge of the negotiations at every stage over the first 2 years.

 

Nothing to do with any lack of power, more a case of unicorns promised during the referendum don't exist! :roll:

Just watched a number of candidates being interviewed on Look North from the various parties taking part in the European elections.  They were all focusing on the environment & those calling for a 2nd referendum or the revocation of Article 50, such as the Lib Dems, Greens, Change UK, were concerned at how devistating it will be if the UK left the EU as both the environment & air quality will suffer as the UK won't be covered by the EU legislation that has been in place for years, which protects us. 

 

Fast forward a few minutes in the same story & we learn that the UK is being taken to court by the EU for breaking air quality rules. 

 

We that piece of EU law seems to be effective doesn't it?

Good to see the government not capitulating and giving them a bailout. Failing companies should be allowed to collapse. 

 

Only a a matter of time though for British Steel.

Brexit isn’t going to save it. Far from it.

Believe it or not, Uk government (and companies) make an effort to comply with eu air regulations. How much effort do you think theyll make with those regulations in place? Our beaches and rivers are cleaner as a result of eu regs as well. I’m sure water companies won’t be sad to see the back of them.

Legislation wise nothing will change regarding environmental legislation after we leave the EU, in fact with the increasing political influence of the Green Party & younger voters taking a greater interest in environmental matters, none of the 3 main parties would be stupid to change or water down the current laws as it would be political suicide.  Just look how the support disappeared for the Lib Dems when they went into coalition with the Tories & back tracked on student fees.  A decade on, despite Vince Cable trying convince the electorate, the Lib Dems still haven't truly recovered. 

 

Even with Brexit, expect UK environmental legislation to eventually be even tougher.

Hang about, I thought one of the reasons we were leaving the EU was to cut through all the environmental red tape? We might sign up to a paris-agreement sort of thing but given trump binned it, I don't expect one any time soon.
