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.

Looks like the price of wine could rocket under proposals to "simplify" duty post brexit...................

Hardly rocketing...29p extra duty on a 13% bottle of wine...49p on a 14%.

Have you hit the ignore button for him ?

Yep, if all they are going to bring to the discussion is petty insults then stuff em, not even worth the time to read what they post.

 

I urge others to do the same, block the Trolls, don't even give them the time of day.

Any readers involved in light haulage with EU-bound loads-

 

 


-the deadline is May, not March, so you have a little over 4 months left to adapt/prepare (i.e. find an alternative logistic solution for your light goods, if you’re using a LH transport provider).

While this is not a direct consequence of Brexit,  with us now being out of the EU we get to sit on the sidelines and watch while they start slinging mud over the usual North Vs South problems that have long plagued the bloc.

Quote

countries in the euro are required to try and cap their debt to 60% of GDP

Quote

Italy’s will have ballooned to about 155% of GDP this year


Such is the ineffectual state of successive Italian governments that politicians have done nothing to reform either the financial system or anything much else.

Funniest thing I seen all week.  The reports of a Tweet put out by pathetic arch-Remainer, Lord Adonis.  "Get rid of Boris, get rid of Brexit." 

 

If someone see's him, please give his head a wobble & then explain what a democratic vote means.  Or will the rest of the dwindling band of Remainers be hopeful as his Lordship?   What an idiot!

Could you name us some Brexit successes please ?

 

Lord knows we’ve been waiting long enough

Democracy didn't end on 5th June 1975 and people were perfectly within their democratic rights to continue arguing we shouldn't be in the EC. Neither did it end on 23 June 2016 and people are still perfectly within their democratic rights to argue we shouldn't have left the EU. Seems it's you who need the lessons in our democracy.

 

Meanwhile, perhaps the government should really get brexit done. Claiming they have whilst not having a viable solution to the most difficult bit doesn't really count.

The problem is no solution is ever going to be good enough for the British public.

 

We voted out, we've left.  We voted the Torys in, they made the deals.

We got exactly what we voted for.

The problem is, that a good year on from actual Brexit, and 6 years on from the referendum promises, it keeps getting worse and worse for those who pay for it all.


One in three UK business owners fear their company won’t exist anymore in a year as Brexit onslaught intensifies


‘Twas always thus, which no amount of ‘getting behind Brexit’ could ever change, because such is international trade outside the Single Market, in all its mind-numbing minutiae of red tape’d rules and regs.

 Maybe come back in a year and we will see how or whether it pans out.

What’s “it”? How or whether what pans out?

 

On whether the NTBs will continue to impact UK businesses negatively or not, there’s no point, because they will continue to do so - whatever the UK does by then, short of rejoining the EU (-which won’t happen in a month of Sundays).
 

The UK does not set customs and procedures, no more than the US, China and the EU does.
 

The country’s status relative to each trading partner country, determines how thick or thin the NTBs with that country are: that’s what FTAs are all about, why there are ‘grades’ of FTA (FTA, DCFTA, group membership à la NAFTA/CPTPP/EFTA) and why SM membership is the Rolls Royce of FTAs for eligible countries.
 

And in terms of the UK ‘doing’ insofar as trade with the EU is concerned, then with respect to the 80 seat majority currently enjoyed by the Tories and the political weight which the ‘ultras’ are still wielding, Truss is just as snookered as Frost was, and Raab before him, and Davis before him.

Whether the one in three businesses actually cease to exist in a years time as predicted in that article.
