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.

No one seems to be mentioning the massive drop in imports and exports across the whole of the EU in January.

...because, as your link shows, it isn't that massive... compared to the UK :?

Because of Brexit?

 

I never knew Cypress was such a big business partner of the UK.

Cypress  does the vast majority of it's business with Turkey, who's populist government is sending the economy down the tubes, so there is an idealogical connection with Brexit ;)

You'd think the EU would be doing well enough to not hold out the begging bowl to the UK for a handout for Eurostar.

I think the idealogical postion of Turkey (at least its president) is quite different from UK (they want to join EU as well), and I'm not too convinced about its populist government.

The "EU" hasn't asked for any handouts for Eurostar.

 

Eurostar is a private company, they have asked for help from both the UK and French governments in line with the support other transport companies have received.

 

The loudest calls for help.... are coming from UK businesses:

...and Tory MP's:

Looks like you got played again! :?

We don't have the economic clout do do favourable trade deals with either US or China. Any deal would come with unacceptable strings attached with regard to food production etc. and unfettered access for their dubious business practices.

Oh no!

Does that mean that Liam Fox was overly optimistic.

Where is he nowadays anyway?

Given the US described his performance at trade talks as like 'turning up to Wimbledon with a ping pong bat'... a foregone conclusion! :hihi:

 

 

UK 'risks falling behind' EU on workers’ rights:

Didn't see that one coming! :roll:

 

UK scientists warn of 'catastrophic' impact of funding cuts:

...or that!

 

So much for that global science superpower!

I'm well aware that this thread is no longer the hot-bed of debate it once was. And that is probably a good thing? 

 

Yet, in many, many, MANY of my posts in this thread and pre-Brexit-referendum threads did I warn that Brexit would lead to renewal of the Troubles. It's begun and it will not stop. The UK willingly neglected the Irish question and the Good Friday Agreement when it decided to leave the European Union and there are no answers. It won't be long before the first murders start again, it won't be long until campaigns on the UK 'mainland' start again. 

 

Many Brexit voters in this thread openly said 'not to care' about Ireland and Northern Ireland. Those responses have been recorded for posterity, anything to say now to compensate for that sentiment?
