Consequences Of Brexit [Part 9] Read First Post Before Posting

Groose

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.

 

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.

Incidentally, how is taking back control of our borders going?

I can see a lot of disappointed remain voters on the 1st of January.

What, you mean more disappointed than in the past 4 years?

 

I can see a lot more people disappointed than merely remain voters a few weeks into January.
 

The current logistics nightmare and shelves getting bare up and down the country? That’s a foretaste. Trade &customs experts can explain why, if you’re bothered. They were predicting the container crisis weeks ago, likewise the current Channel bottlenecks months ago.

What's nonsense you are talking. The 2019 election was exactly an opportunity for people to change their mind. If there was even a sniff that the tide turned and people were no longer wishing to leave the EU - any party with even a proposal of overturning would have absolutely stormed it come polling day. They didn't.

 

Not only did the clearly brexit pushing Tories win the election they won with a huge increase in their majority share. If that's not a clear signal of what the majority wanted in relation to brexit I don't know what is.

 

I don't particularly like the results of leaving myself.   It certainly was never my choice.  However, I'm also smart enough to see see the clear direction that things have taken. Whether it is actually disaster remains to be seen but you cannot possibly pretend that the public have not spoken.

 

Who on earth are you to arrogantly declare that the majority electorate choice is wrong and your position is right?   That sort of attitude doesn't doesn't sound much like 'democracy' to me.  That's what dictators do isn't it.

 

 

This Tories huge increase was gained by a minority of the electorate. 37.something percent.

 

Over 50 percent of the electorate voted for parties opposed to Brexit (Greens, LibDems, SNP, etc i.e. neither Tories not Labour).

 

FPTP did the rest.

 

A bit less revisionism, please.

Luckily for you, you are no longer interested, which is shown by your lack of posts on this thread...

Best to step forward though. No point in stepping back to the 1950s.

 

Johnson is currently being schooled in who exactly controls that border. It’s not very pretty, is it?

 

You can expect a resolution to the fish problem very soon.

Very much doubt it to be honest, Tesco already import large amounts of most salad produce from Morocco already, it all comes in to Portsmouth, so is not dependent on cross channel difficulties.

Wow, that's one thing that the brexiteers can't see; they can see the glory lands ahead, the lands of milk and honey, (they can't see the grey days of shortages, or of the UK economy going even redder), but they can't see the UK population deciding they have been royally duped by the liars and charlatans that drove the brexit vote...

Brexit was/is and will always be a scam, we will never be better off outside of the EU. The unfortunate thing about being scammed, is the stigma and shame of actually falling for a scam. If you got scammed over the phone by some scam phone call or email, would you rock up at work the next day and admit it to your work mates? There will never ever be any come back on this, The minority of hardcore Brexiteers would never have achieved this without the general publics gullibility. And to top it off, Covid has now given them the perfect opportunity to overt blame for any short comings. Text book.
