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.

We already know the will of the people from recent referendum and general election results.

 

It's rather amusing you label real true facts not to your liking  as waffle.

 

I think they were just one or two seats short of an overall majority.  The pro independence mob argue that the seats won by the Green party gives them an overall majority which is nonsense.  Voters choose to vote for the Green party for a number of reasons such as not hating trees.  If truth was known even Nicola Sturgeon doesn't want an independence referendum soon because the likelihood is they would be defeated by a bigger margin than in 2014.

 

So they have achieved less than 50% of the overall vote?

Correct. We are now paying the price for those who didn't understand the full consequences.

How anyone can claim this to be a success is beyond me.

Most Brexiteers are just quietly getting on with their lives and enjoying living in a sovereign country again.  Now lockdown restrictions are being lifted I've had a chance to engage with normal  real people and the consensus it was a no brainer to leave the EU.  The only regret is that the UK didn't leave the EU sooner.

We've really taken back control of our borders 😎

 

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2021/may/28/cult-britain-boris-johnson-prime-minister

 

"Elsewhere, it has emerged that a government that came to power promising to control our borders has allowed 1.59 million – ONE POINT FIVE NINE MILLION – travellers to fly into the UK in the four lockdown months from January to April alone, two-thirds of whom were not UK nationals."

It looks like the trade deal with Australia will allow Australian companies to sue future UK governments if they pass policies that hit Aussie firms' profits. Literally giving away control. Surrendering UK sovereignty and giving the whip hand to Australian businesses. Well done everyone. This lot really have had your pants down.

Yet more reports of Turkeys complaining about their votes.

Floodlights at a Brexit lorry park in Kent have "destroyed" the night sky, residents say.

 

The site near Ashford, Kent, was built to cope with extra customs checks after Britain left the European Union.

 

Asford area voted 60% in favour of leave.

That's really scraping the barrel to make the headlines because of Brexit.  All over the country residents living where new industrial estates have been built over the years will suffer negatives as a consequence.  I suspect the residents in Kent are more concerned about illegal immigrants entering the country both before and after the UK left the EU rather than floodlights.  In years gone by residents views have been blighted by big chimneys and other things associated with industry that provides jobs.

I presume that the lights are for the Farage Garage. A direct result of Brexit.

Hardly, it's a direct consequence of Brexit, and yet another example showing people who voted leave really had no idea what they were voting for.

Odd then that they would vote to make it worse by removing the UK from the Dublin agreement, the legislation that gave the UK the ability to return them to the first safe country they passed through :?

But, this lorry park was built as a direct consequence of Brexit?

 

So is brexit related despite what happens with new housing builds

And here's me thinking that you're only allowed to deal with EU countries as a collective? 

https://knews.uk/france-italy-and-germany-vie-for-post-brexit-deals-with-britain-brexit/

 

Looks like the 'Big 2 (3)', can make their own rules?   As ever the case when it comes to Germany & France.  You only have to go back to the years when they continued to break EU rules on budgetary constraints.
