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.

It's still early days and I expect the UK Government to take unilateral action if the EU continue to behave unreasonable.

You prove my point for me!

 

The EU is only asking the UK to do what it agreed to do.

 

Nothing remotely unreasonable.

 

The UK government is blaming the EU for it's own failure to prepare (or be honest with the people of N.I), and you're not even attempting to hold the right people to account!

Like wise I expert the UK Government to take tough action against the French if they continue to threaten to cut off the electric supply for Jersey.

Such as?

That's just your own anti Brexit bias view point.  Brexit has now happened and every UK citizen should now support their own Government regarding any disputes with the EU.

They could start by expelling  a number French diplomats similar to the action taken after the Salisbury poisoning towards Russian diplomats.

All hail the leader! 😂😂

 

As for expelling French diplomats over a trade dispute of our own making. Do you think that goes far enough? Perhaps we should nuke Paris as well to be on the safe side 🙄

Do you think it's reasonable for the French to threaten to cut off the elect supply of innocent Jersey citizens?  Do you think the EU were reasonable when they  intended to block the movement of covid -19 vaccines across the Ireland border into Northern Ireland?

 

I wouldn't have a problem if the Royal Navy moved warships to the Channel Islands area to carry out practice exercises.

When our Government begins to behave in a civilised manner, it will get my support.

 

Im afraid that’s not going to happen with the current bunch of charlatans on board.

Not really, the EU isn't asking the UK to do anything it didn't agree and sign up to.

 

If you can highlight something where that isn't the case, have at it!

Same reason why EDF supply the UK mainland with electricity.  The very fact Jersey is only a few miles from the coast of France made it logical to run electric supply cables  on the seabed from France to Jersey rather than from England to Jersey.  Jersey still does have it's own power station.

Your comments are hardly a surprise given the flag you're displaying as your avatar picture. It's quite clear where your allegiances lie.

So it's market forces rather than any sovereign responsibility. Ok.

Yes market forces is the main reason. The problem now is that EDF is 85% owned by the French Government.  Having foreign owned companies responsible for energy supplies is proving to be a big mistake.  The Cameron Government made a wrong decision by allowing both the Chinese and French to get involved in building and running nuclear power stations in the UK.

And Thatcher sold off our electric (exept nuclear if memory serves). Maybe they could have run a cable to jersey with some of the profits.

It's Jerseys problem not the UKs.

It's a notorious tax haven and allowed billions of tax due to the UK government to be avoided.
