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.

I don’t think that there will be a second referendum.

What I do think is that current circumstances highlight the need for the closest cooperation between all countries is of paramount importance.

Anyone who cannot see that the go it alone jingoistic claptrap of the far right is detrimental to us all is stuck in a 4 year old time warp.

We are moving on but perhaps not as anticipated.

So the softest of Brexit and the closest of relationships.

Detrimental? Nowadays it is *actually* killing...and yet look at the approval ratings.

 

As I posted, 10 to 20 years before the scales fall off from enough eyes, to matter politically. Same story elsewhere similar: US, Hungary, Poland...

Farming is facing a monumental crisis. Watching Channel 4 reporting that up to 90% of the asparagus crop will go unpicked unless British workers pick up jobs. The EU migrant labour has stopped coming and Covid hasn't helped. That's just one crop.

Sorry about#278

Was just trying to add that I will be interested to see how approval ratings trend both here and the US.

Hopefully cometh the hour ,cometh the man.(or woman)

Well, after this morning's news, they're not likely to fall in the US: Trump has minions on the ground in China with cases full of cash, hijack-buying every consignment of masks in sight on tarmacs, sometimes at 3x the price, and sod the original purchasers.

 

French local authorities have had several millions hijacked like that, would not surprise me one bit if likewise for other countries, including the UK.

Technically not a consequence of brexit but as resurrecting a UKIP thread would require some advanced thread necromancy this is probably the best place to put it.

 

Arron Banks fails to use European laws to avoid paying £162,000 tax bill.

The Brexit-backing millionaire has been resisting an HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) assessment that he owes the money for an inheritance tax liability on political donations to Ukip.

 

Where's my very small violin?

Multi-millionaire Brexiteer fails in his attempt to use European human rights laws to dismiss a £162,000 tax bill.  What a scumbag.

I can’t speak about trade in recent years but in the business that I was in the Chinese were renowned for reneging on deals if the market went against them or a better offer was tabled.

The Japanese were very precise but honourable.

He would literally snatch a ventilator from a relative of yours and you're applauding him.

 

Give your head a wobble.
