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

Vaati

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.

 To many forum contributors the UK didn't exist economically until 1973. Oh dear. 

 

The EU is now in a Lose/Lose position.

 

Millions of EU citizens will lose their jobs if Brussels seeks to promote the fantasy that the UK cannot survive outside the trading bloc, or the EU can allow the UK to prosper - weakening EU member states economically and again losing EU jobs.

 

This crisis in global capitalism will mean the EU is weakened no matter the outcome of Brexit. 

 

 

Of course it existed economically pre 73,  it was just getting economically weaker - the "Commonwealth" was going its own way, we no longer had an empire to plunder, as usual British bosses were taking profits rather than re-investing in modern plant.

 

Job losses post Brexit are rather more likely to be in the UK, especially if financial services lose passporting and "just in time" manufacturing gets peed off with delays at the ports and moves to the continent.

 

The EU is better positioned to ride out a global crisis of capitalism than the UK.

 

Keep dreaming of a "British Road to Socialism" 😎

Liz truss is handling negotiations.

 

I'll repeat that, Liz truss is handling negotiations, someone who I wouldn't trust to handle the running of a sandwich van.

The UK will aim to lower trade barriers faced by British car manufacturers, ceramics makers and producers of products such as Cheddar cheese, the document adds.

She's obsessed with cheese.

Do you believe Johnson, Hancock, Cummings, Patel, Gove etc. and their ex-Guido Fawkes SPADs?

And the much vaunted free trade deal with the USA will add a whopping 0.16% to GDP - a fraction of our predicted losses from Brexit - estimated at between 4.9% and 7.6%.

 

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/mar/02/uk-says-it-will-not-lower-standards-to-strike-trade-deal-with-trump

 

So we've only got to find another 30 or so countries with as big an economy as the USA and sign free trade deals with them to make good Brexit losses.........................think there might be a slight problem there.

Read my post above - what dividend? Especially when sterling takes the inevitable hit when we leave with no deal or next to no deal.

 

I see also "the US has also specified it wants to be able to veto the UK's ability to strike deals with "non-market economies" meaning the likes of China"

 

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-51706802

 

This despite the US  in the act of negotiating a deal with China.

Taking back control = handing it over to Trump.

I had you down as a socialist, not a neocon.

 

But clearly, you're not bothered about the counter-effect of these ultra-low priced US goods on British producers and their workforce.

 

How odd.

To quote Carboot” is a riddle wrapped up in a mystery inside an enigma”

Somehow he seeks to square the circle of Leninist dogma and Trumpism.

A prime candidate to work alongside Dom Cummings?
