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.

A genuine positive for Leaving the EU is the wholesale nationalisation of the railways.

 

Would UK law on competition allow a fully nationalised railway; if the private companies went to court and sited UK competition rules?

I'd assume that nationalisation of the railways would be made via an act of Parliament.

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.

The tampon tax is being reduced in Luxembourg, not abolished, as your article explains. 

 

Women in the UK want this evil tax abolished. Membership of the EU is not compatible with this aim.

Under a sovereign UK parliament such an Act would become law. 

 

Membership of the EU prevents a unified monopolistic UK railway service as the EU dictates that the management of member states rail infrastructure and services must be kept separate.

 

The state could not run both under EU rule. Or prevent private companies from running rail services.

Bus, NHS, immigrants, sovereignty, Farage, taking back control

Would this be the Nigel Farage who said in the European Parliament that he has got the agreement of the Italian and Polish Commission members to bloc any extention to Brexit?

 

Yes Nigel, that's really taking back control! 🙄

And exactly what will any extension achieve that couldn't have been achieved in nearly 3 years?

The only people who want an extension are those who would keep us in the EU.

After we Leave the EU we can, at last, consign the hated EU tampon tax to the dustbin of history.

 

This misogynist tax has been kept because of EU rules which are, and have always been, anti-female. Despite some retailers absorbing the tax, VAT on tampons is still very much in place in the UK.

 

Let's ditch the EU and ditch the tampon tax. Lets be positive for women!

Haha, brilliant!! The majority of the UK will be significantly worse off, with the poorest hit hardest, and you try and spin this into a positive by pointing out that women will be approximately £7.00 a year better off if the UK ditch VAT on sanitary products?   Well, that's converted me, who cares about food prices going up, billions lost with companies leaving the UK, massive queues at ports, billions spent duplicating all the  systems we share with the EU that we lose access to, job uncertainty, lack of trade with other countries as none of the promised trade deals are in place,  NHS significantly worse off etc etc etc,  it's all good cos women save seven quid a year....

Absolutely nothing. Leavers haven't a single plan to get behind - there's about 6. Tories are split, Labour is split. If we extend it for 3 months, there will be arguments going for 3 months.

If nothing else, it will stop us exiting the EU at the end of the month without any deal.

Really CarBoot - you should read the links... - The state can run both under EU rules, just not as one entity.

 

"Other European nations demonstrate how Britain could take the railways back into the public sector while abiding by EU rail rules. There are two main adopted models. The first is two separate state-owned companies (one for track, one for trains), which is used in Spain and the Netherlands.

The second uses separate companies within a state-owned group of companies (a parent company with a subsidiary company for infrastructure, and others for different train services). This is the model used in Germany and Italy."

 

Once again, the lies of the brexiteers are laid bare - not getting at you, just the brexit camp in general for not bothering about facts!
