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.

The millennium bug was very real. A lot of people spent the previous two years checking and updating computer systems and made sure it had no impact. Unlike with brexit, we were well prepared for it.

Having to reset IT systems was real - the prophesies of doom were not. 

 

As with Brexit.

Aye, in much the same way as a surgeon operating to save someone's life, then suggesting the danger was imagined because they didn't die :? :loopy:

Nah, Brexit's all about being sick of experts, so that operation never happened... hence the somewhat obvious (and predicted) results.

You don't know what problems were corrected. Several people on the forum worked in checking and updating software as part of the preparations for Y2K and so do know.

The prophesies of what would happen if we exited without a deal obviously didn't occur because we didn't exit without a deal.

 

The prophesies of what would happen if we put a border between NI and RoI haven't happened because we haven't put a border between NI and RoI. It's worth noting that we still haven't sorted out the NI border issue and just yesterday Ian Paisley claims Boris Johnson promised to 'tear up' NI Protocol, so it looks like we never really had a solution to the border issue in the first place - just something we viewed as temporary so that Johnson could claim he had "got brexit done".

 

The prophesies of what would happen if we distance ourselves from the EU single market have so far only partly come about, not least because we haven't implementing all the border checks we were going to.

Actually, I beg to differ.  My exports to the EU have increased significantly over the last 18 months - I look forward to a bountiful Christmas dinner, maybe even a pudding.

 

 

Not read anywhere that troll exports have increased..............................

How the heck is Brussels coping without male bovine 'exports' from our Brexiteers? I think we should be told.

They are probably importing it from NI via RoI. No customs issues and the DUP are very prolific producers.

This thread has now become an embarrassment as a consequence of the anti Brexit mob posters. 

 

Time  to move on.

Now there seems to be a national shortage of apologies. We seem to be 17 million short.
