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.

Part 7, hoping this is the part where I see a genuine positive for leaving.

 

Come on leavers, lets do this!!!!

A genuine positive for Leaving the EU is the wholesale nationalisation of the railways. Under EU rule this is an infringement of the Fourth Railway Package - a neoliberal bosses policy which requires governments to open up train services to the markets. 

 

The majority of voters now want the railways to be in the public sector. Unfortunately, EU directives ensure 'open access' operations for private companies on all railway lines within the EU. This means that private profit making companies cannot be legally prevented from operating their unreliable and expensive franchises while we have EU membership.

I agree. A positive - presuming our government implements that. That’s actually a positive that has the slightest chance of happening.

 

You get a tick, albeit in pencil because it hasn’t happened yet. 

No tick, it was happening anyway.

That article was dated April 7 2016. 

 

Brussels has yet to hand back any VAT powers regarding the tampon tax.

 

It will probably never happen.

You should read the articles that you provide links for.

 

Your article just confirms that a truly nationalised railway system is impossible under EU rule.

 

"Under current EU competition policy, Britain could not recreate a railway monopoly. It could, however, bring much of the rail sector into public ownership."

 

Your article confirms that under neoliberal EU directives a UK government would not be able to stop a private company from operating their own trains on Britain's railway lines for profit.  The British public want both infrastructure and rail services to be state owned and managed, as the franchise model (loved by the EU) is an unreliable and expensive failure.

Can we have an end to out sourcing public services as well please.

It doesn’t work at all well.

Won't it?

 

Happening on 1st May here in Luxembourg.

 

I suggest you take the matter up with Mr Hammond, if it looks like not happening in the UK ;)

 

Keep'em coming, obviously readers haven't had their fill of Brexiters' lies yet.

Do you think Theresa May will start the nationalisation process at the end of March or wait for June?

It's not an "EU Tampon Tax" at all, it was never imposed by the EU but rather by agreement of member states.

 

 

isnt that the EU

People can always use a moon cup or washable tampons / sanitary towels if they don't want to keep shelling out for tampons.
