Consequences Of Brexit [Part 8] Read First Post Before Posting

Groose

Mod Note: As we are getting rather tired of seeing reports about this. The use of the word Remoaners  is to cease. Either posts like adults, or don't post at all. The mod warnings have been clear.

In addition to remoaner we are also not going to allow the use of libdums or liebore - if you cannot behave like adults and post without recourse to these childish insults then please refrain from posting. If you have a problem with this then you all know where the helpdesk is.

BBC news reporting that over 2.7 million EU people have applied for settled status so far.

 

Wasn't the consensus of the armchair experts that people would be leaving en masse?

Yes, and that's why so many voted Leave.

Nice bit of dog whistle anti-semitism there "comrade".

You believe that criticising bankers who funded the Remain campaign is "anti-semitism"?

 

Brexit was a democratic revolt against the rich.

EU citizens would much prefer to live in a non-EU state than in the workers paradise.

You don't recognise that Brexit is a total horror show nor that the Tory scum are a controlling elite.

Double yikes.

The Tories will be held to account democratically at the next election.

 

To Leave the EU is a democratic decision made by the people, and it is far from clear that it is a "total horror show" as you describe it. Predictions of economic collapse just for daring to vote Leave have failed to materialise.

 

For those who are dependent on the EU gravy train for their extravagant lifestyles I suppose Brexit is a "total horror show". But they, like you, are completely out of touch and on the wrong side of history.

You haven't left yet.

 

Many HNWI top rate taxpayers (typically running high corpo tax-yielding financial service businesses/departments) and professionals with livelihoods threatened by predictable Brexit outcomes, have already long left.

 

More people still, less invested in their UK life and so with comparatively easier life choices, have also left. For those bothered enough to look, some corners of social media have long borne photos of Continent- and Ireland-bound moving trucks and vans, ferry/port concourses, empty UK houses for sale and tearful farewells.

 

Brexodus will become more visible (i.e. harder to ignore...but again, only for those bothered enough about it) in the post-Brexit period come 2021, when the hostile environment and economic slow-down both begin to bite and catch up with the EU27inUK.

 

There might be a brexoding blip in February, that said: we all saw how hate crimes spiked the length and breadth of the country, in the immediate aftermath of the referendum, so given the crowing about 31st January in tabloids and online, there's no reason to suppose it will be any different come 1st February.

If the EU doesn't like trading with nations that have a competitive advantage over its member states because of their employment laws (or lack of employment laws) why are our homes stuffed full of products made in China?

 

I guess the EU took a pass on that one.

Another Brexit Benefit

 

The UK after Brexit will not contribute financially towards a completely unnecessary, quasi-democratic, trading bloc political structure - the European Parliament. This includes the salaries and expenses of 751 MEPs and the continual expensive movement between Brussels and Strasbourg that people paid by the public purse greatly enjoy.

 

Brexit removes another tier of the out of touch ruling class from our lives. A tier that is distant, remote and extremely well paid. Definitely a Brexit benefit.

Nope - the Tories are still with us and in government for the forseeable future.

Yes, it's brilliant isn't it? 

 

As Car Boot also points out, we'll also not longer be party to the idiotic monthly exercise, (or be required to contribute to), of moving the EU Parliament, lock, stock & barrel from Brussels to Strasbourg, every 4th week for a total of 4 days work, then move the whole shenanigans back to Brussels.  Think not only about the money angle of this which has been going on for decades but also the environmental costs?
