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 know what two of those are big at too, fishing

 

wonder if they will be wanting to buy our fish from our new hard fought bigger, better fishing fleet we are going to have?

or will they be expecting us to buy their fish?

hmmmmm

oh *pretend shocked face* no surprise there LOL

 

they were told all along, the fishing "debate" for brexit was a ******** "debate"

 

For one, theres only a finite amount of fish in the sea, once its gone...its gone, hence why theres quotas.

Its like whitby around where i work now, theres plees being put out about crabbers on the keyside is now affecting the amount of crabs down the coast, yes its "fun" but pulling crabs out of their natural habitat means a lot die, even when dropped back in, seagulls swoop to grab them before they hit the bottom, again cutting down on the population. NOT everything is and should be about human pleasure.

UK households could save up to £1.22 in the deal with Australia

 

BUT how much will brexit cost every hold, i bet more, how much has it already cost us, like the none existent ferries, the tax payer will pay for those? the farms and fishing boats that may go bust?

 

more than £1.22 per household?

Look on the bright side mel, if you put that £1.22 aside in 689 years time you’ll have enough to buy a roll of Boris Johnson's favourite wallpaper.

Just seen a snippet from the RSPCA comparing our livestock standards and the Australian ones.  Very big differences, and not good news for our farmers - the playing field isn't level.

 

Whats worse american negotiators will look at this deal and fully expect their cheaper, ****tier food to be allowed over here (and not be labelled as such) when its their turn for a super quick deal.

Re: Why the title for this tread is the wrong way to look at Brexit!

 

'There is a simple reason why Boris Johnson and European leaders failed to find common ground over Brexit at last week’s G7 summit. They are not even talking about the same thing.'

 

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2021/jun/16/british-politics-drunk-brexit-spirit-boris-johnson

 

The above is what I have been wrestling with ever since the Referendum campaign got going.

The final para from the 'pinko Guardian' is spot on (but reading the column first is a good idea).

 

Boris and his party have made the Brexit debate simple = Sovereignty, Britishness and Slogans.

 

As for finding a way through the bluster poor old Kier has a formidable job on his hands. But, that is what I look for in a successful leader - to make complex issues easy to understand.

I don't think Kier needs worry himself about tacking the Brexit issue, I really can't see Labour winning an election anytime soon.

A very impressive interview with Liz Truss this morning on BBC Breakfast where she explained the merits of the new trade deal with Australia.  It's  a trade deal like many others to come where the aim is to benefit the long term future.  The Pacific region is where the big deals will happen in the future while the EU deteriorates in global importance.

Majority of the worlds people live in the Asia/Pacific region so it makes sense to deal with those countries.

 

It's all window dressing tho, in reality the real substance comes from making trade deals with America and China, that would make deals with other individual countries pale in significance.

I agree with your sentiments.  The Australian trade deal is just one small piece of the jigsaw.  I don't think the UK are rushing to make any new trade arrangements with China.  Regarding the Pacific trade bloc, if both the USA and UK join them then we can say goodnight Vienna and auf wiedersehen to the EU being the most important and influential trade bloc.
