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

Groose

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.

That’s about as helpful as publishing a list of all the U.K. constituencies and assessing which areas are nett contributors to the U.K. economy.

If you don’t believe in the principle of operating a coordinated market for the greater good then so be it.

But as I have repeatedly said there is a permanent need for the closest of ties with other countries,and never more so than at present.

Is that why they are scrambling to close their borders?

Restrictions on movement are a necessity to all at the moment.

Essential movement of supplies continues including foodstuffs,PPE ,medical equipment.

Pull up the drawbridge and see how long you can survive.

 

And I wasn’t just talking about physical ties and cooperation

Is this why the UK has gone begging to the EU to repatriate British citizens stranded around the world?

 

Got it.....

I don't need to, after you kindly answered your own question again.

 

So within that 75% EU aid, made up of 10 countries' contributions (and not just the UK's, as your earlier rethoric seemed to claim), Germany paid more than the UK to repatriate those Britons.

 

:o

 

That must smart the rabid Brit nationalists a bit :lol:

Looks like it's OK for some to pull up the drawbridge,

The UK is not begging they are using a service they will have paid well over the odds for.

Do you actually read what you publish.

“Keeping strategic resources inside the bloc.”

You voted to leave the bloc so that we could have free trade with the US ,China etc.

Despite the U.S.having more domestic resources than most,Trump has blocked exports and hi jacked goods on the world market.

The European bloc is self sufficient in most respects,and this is because some had the vision to see that we have strength in numbers.

You still cannot see or acknowledge that even with the benefit of hindsight.

I can't help thinking that one of the many negatives of this exceptionally unfortunate coronavirus, is that it lets the Brexiteers off the hook. Most people knew that leaving the EU would affect the economy but Brexiteers always denied it. Now, due to the effects of this virus (which will definitely put the world into recession) any poor performance of the UK economy can just be blamed on the virus. I accept most of it will be, but not all of it.

They're off the hook, again.....
