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.

I am still waiting for the £350M a week windfall to the NHS - where is it?

Being able to recruit staff from around the world is just as important. We are now seen as a more divided and less friendly country.

Although I did see a story about record numbers of NHS nurses working for the NHS. How does that fit with Brexit?

The marginalisation begins...

Doesn't look like the US is falling for Truss's rhetoric either:

...they appear to have spotted the gaping hole in the logic of the UK's position, Frost still fails to understand that his plan will only work... with a border! :?

I’d like to thank all the Brexiteers on here for not rubbing us Remainers noses in it for all the benefits that Brexit has achieved. It’s very kind of you all not to be gloating about all the fantastic successes Brexit is bringing the country.

Tumbleweed... the desolation of the high streets, the pound's value against other currencies, the emptiness of the supermarket shelves...

 

They must be proud of taking back control.

Control of a failing economy, with a failing health service, failing borders, led by a failing government propped up by sheep...

Maybe the government are missing something here as they don't need to supply visas. Instead of sending the boat detainees to Rwanda they could be made to do the work and make up any shortfall.

The government would need to change all of immigration,employment and asylum laws quite fundamentally to do all that (remove visa requirements for workers, facilitate asylum seekers into employment pre-assessment, force asylum seekers into picking jobs).

 

Plus, putting refugees into chain gangs for picking broccoli can’t be anywhere as sexy, for the current government’s fanbase, as shipping them (back-) to Africa.

 

The government may have a bit more truck with Northern Ireland loyalists. Quid pro quo for the £1bn bung and stalling/faffing with the Protocol, the DUP sends its minions over to England for picking crops 👍🏻

Monday, so obligatory ‘Brexit benefit’ post:

 

https://www.cityam.com/uk-trademark-disputes-double-following-britains-exit-from-the-european-union/

 

Not a surprise (I posted that eventual consequence years ago).

 

There is a Brexit benefit to UK IP firms, in that the increased number of oppositions at the UKIPO means that they’ve done, and are doing, more fee-earning work about UK rights (whether they act for the applicant or for the opponent)…

 

…but, and of course, that benefit is to be contrasted with the loss of fee-earning work about EU rights since 01.01.21; the investments in the EU before and since then, to try and preserve that work with new structures/partnerships/joint ventures (…and new jobs) in the EU; and increased domestic competition from EU firms that have done the same thing ‘in reverse’  (set up small shops in UK for access to UKIPO).

 

The losers are, unsurprisingly, businesses (more or less doubling of registration and enforcement costs) and ultimately their customers.

You have more serious short-term problems.

 

 

 

Seriously.


That cash-flow shock was predicted lengthways and sideways by us ‘Remoaners’ when the government brought in that  EIDR quick release, as interim palliative care for the supply shock of 1st January 2021.

 

Expect corporate casualties, I’m afraid.
