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.

UK fishing is now disadvantaged compared to what we enjoyed as EU members, as a consequence of Brexit.

 

She couldn't say it any clearer :roll:

 

 

Your desperate squirming doesn't change that... that you've managed to convince yourself it's disconnected from Brexit... priceless! :loopy:

Once again, you're not listening to what Jane Sandell ACTUALLY said but trying to twist the story for an agenda. 

 

Don't worry they will be another story along in a few days that you can try & shoehorn into the thread. In the meantime, why not try reposting, post 3053 again in a desperate & lamentable attempt to convince yourself you're right about what Jane Sandell said?

 

I really can't comprehend the faux pain of Remainers.  Wasn't it the group  De La Soul who once said "Three is the magic number?"  However these days they'd be singing; 

 

"17,410,742 votes to leave and 16,141,241 to remain, a margin of 1,269,501 votes."   Ouch!  Oh, the agony. 

 

Even Gina Miller has well & truly moved on.  I suggest the ever decreasing band of Remainers do likewise.  The constant fretting about something people have no control over & a result you can't change, can't be good for someone's health in the long term.

There is no twisting, I quoted her verbatim, anyone can watch the interview.

 

The only person spinning like a top here is you! :D

Indeed there will, and for many years to come.

No need, the post stands, is correct, and can be verified.

Back to that safe space you always end up at when you've made a bit of a fool of yourself... twice in one day today!

 

Desperate stuff! :)

 

Keep on digging... :thumbsup:

And yet you missed the verbatim about the two being "Totally divorced". 

 

More to be pitied than laughed at.  I suppose this is what we've come to expect when a Remainer looses an argument & a vote.   We're all used to it by now.  After all, we've nearly had 5 years of the continued, relentless moaning.

No, I didn't! :?

 

"Brexit means that we've got extra paperwork etc, etc, but this is totally divorced from that".

 

"That" being the paperwork, not Brexit! :loopy: :hihi:

 

Context matters! :thumbsup:

 

Again, the issue here is your complete inability to comprehend basic speech!

And again. 3 times in less than a day... the desperation is palpable! :D

 

You're going to need that on copy/paste the way things are going! :hihi:

They didn't do it alone, they did it in partnership, which is why many of those who did that fighting (who were still alive) lamented the stupidity of Brexit.

Somebody posted here that the Remainers were mostly older folks.

 

Should our elders be so easily dismissed?

 

Perhaps they were closer in time latest war for the subjugation of Britain, by our European "friends.

 

There's more ways to subjugate a nation than by blitzkrieg.

Meh, I'm in my 40s and voted remain :D 

 

Mainly because unlike a LOT of leave voters (IMO), I don't have an axe to grind against immigrants in Europe.

it was a long time ago, the world now is very different to the world then both geopolitically and technologically and rather than romanticise a six year period to the point of fetish, maybe we should look forward into the world.....

Times change but the human condition does not.

 

The lust for political power is as rife today as ever.

 

That's why the U.S. has some 300 military servicemen and women still stationed in Europe.

The Brexit vote was stronger among the older folks not the Remain vote.

Thanks for the correction.

 

It should have said:

 

"Somebody posted here that the Brexit voters were mostly older folk"..

 

"Should our elders be so easily dismissed?".

They're not necessarily, it's not all elders:

The ones with actual experience of what division brings weren't voting for Brexit.

I'm quite happy to own things.  I don't know about you but when things don't work out, most people try & find a way of putting them right. 

It's quite clear that Brexit hasn't worked out for the UK fishing fleet. It's also quite clear that an ideologically pure Brexit is never going to be "a way of putting them right".

Quote

If you suggest that "If we ever negotiate a deal that's better than the EU have with a country", of course people like me will be quick to claim is because of Brexit because we'd have to be outside the EU to make that deal for starters. 

 

The question is would you then own the disappointment that you were wrong about Brexit or would you continue wear the faux misery & disappointed like a hair shirt?

Not at all. If we do ever negotiate a better deal with a country than the EU have I will be relieved because it will mean the country is better than if we hadn't and it would go at least some way to counteract all those poorer deals we have. The government are going to have to their act together though because the economic balance sheet so far has the downsides from leaving massively outweighing the positives.
