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.

Kwarteng along with Raab, Patel and Truss - all Government ministers, in a book 'Britannia Unchained' labelled British workers as 'the worst idlers in the world'. 

It just beggars belief that we are ruled by people who clearly disrespect the electorate in such a shoddy manner.

Though Patel, as evident from her bullying tactics, is clearly a nasty piece of work; Truss is famously vapid, and Raab said  he hadn't quite understood" how reliant UK trade in goods is on the Dover-Calais crossing.

I just wonder whether voters in red wall areas like Mansfield, Workington and Blyth Valley would agree?

Speaking of Truss...

 

UK and US fail to do mini-trade deal as Trump exits:

Just need to dangle the right carrots.

 

Sending foreigners home/stopping scroungers. Ben Bradley hasn't got a clue what poor people do with food vouchers, hes knows what his voters THINK they spend it on.

I see fishing and sea food business can now claim up to £100k each for lost income. I'm just checking how this works: (largely) vote for Brexit, get Brexit, start losing money because of Brexit, get given other people's money to be protected from the consequences of your own decisions. Is that it?

Sunak found a jungle's worth of money trees, then?

 

You are presuming that these claims will be honoured...

...when fishing and seafood businesses are merely the first 2 seats of the first carriage of a miles-long train nicknamed "UK plc".

 

It's not the sort of presumption that I would feel confident enough to stake my business' continuity on.

 

Not when there's a planeload or ten of carpetbaggers circling and waiting for the derailment, to then swoop in and pillage the wreckage for nowt; and then stash the proceeds in BVI and Jersey banks.

I see that Roger Daltrey of The Who is taking quite a bit of flak at the moment

 

Daltrey is one of 100 music stars that have accused the government of “shamefully failing” the country’s performers with its EU trade deal.

In a letter published in The Times on Wednesday, they said the government’s “negotiating failure” threatened the future of cultural exchange with Europe and that new Brexit red tape would make "many tours unviable, especially for young emerging musicians who are already struggling to keep their heads above water owing to the Covid ban on live music".

This comes after culture minister Caroline Dinenage admitted the UK rejected an offer by the EU to extend the music visa scheme to pursue more stringent border policies.

 

However, Daltrey a vocal supporter of Brexit Daltrey, famously downplayed the effect of Brexit on bands touring Europe, once asking "what's it got to do with the rock business?"

It must be some kind of record?   We've gone a whole 24 hours plus on this thread without anyone posting (moaning).  Well I'll start you all off for the day. 

 

Some of you aren't going to like the fact that Nissan are happy with the UK's Brexit deal with the EU & that they're here for the long term, with thousands of jobs, both at the Sunderland plant & ancillary industries secured.  

 

"Japanese car maker Nissan has told the BBC its Sunderland plant is secure for the long term as a result of the trade deal reached between the UK and the EU.

 

It said it will move additional battery production close to the plant where it has 6,000 direct employees and supports nearly 70,000 jobs in the supply chain."

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/business-55757930

 

Despite Project Fear postings, hundreds of pages back & months ago the when some here predicted that Sunderland would be an example of a post Brexit, unemployment abyss. 

 

No doubt we'll be treated on here to baseless conspiracy theories for  Nissan carrying on trading?  I'm looking forward to "Well they've been promised millions of secret Govt money just to stay" or "Well the Govt are going to scrap all the labour laws, so even if someone loose an arm on the production line, they'll be given a sticking plaster & told to get back to work." 

 

There you go, I've started you off.  I'm sure many will come up with more imaginative reasons why Nissan are happy to keep manufacturing in Sunderland? 

 

Off you go, have a nice day.  Looks the workers of Sunderland will be having a rosy post Brexit future, much to the disappointment to many on here?

Of course we are delighted that Nissan have committed investment In the U.K. 

They have been able to do so because of the absence of tariffs.

The fears of many were based on the danger of a No Deal Brexit and those who were prepared to settle for WTO rules.

Glad to see that one crisis has been averted,but its more than a stretch to say that this announcement is a result of Brexit.

There are many instances of the negative instances in fishing,music import,export,customs duties,transport issues that have to be negotiated.

I will share your joy when you can come up with businesses that are booming BECAUSE of our new found freedoms.

It is clearly good news, but it is hardly a Brexit win. It just isn't a loss. Brexit needs to show it can deliver things better than before,  rather than just maintaining things as they were. As yet there is no evidence of that.

I'm glad that Sunderland are no worse off than before for car jobs. I've also decided that the impact on fishing is good, because only ⅓ of species in British waters are not overfished. I hope they all go bust, then I might think Brexit was worth it.
