Consequences Of Brexit [Part 9] Read First Post Before Posting

Groose

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.

It's Brexit at any cost to these people mate, if you haven't worked that out by now you are as daft as me. Wouldn't matter if there were 14 trillion lorry's queuing at Kent or supermarkets were empty and it cost 14k for a loaf of bread. Absolutely any cost.

Remainers must come to terms with the fact that we are a small country now, and not a part of an economic and political empire that seeks to always expand.

We are. And our influence will diminish, folk might get poorer. That's good right?

The influence of our politicians and big business on the world stage must absolutely diminish. You speak as if our continual interference in world affairs has been an unresounding success and it is still the 19th Century. In reality, the global consequences of our influence has been to destroy lives and jobs. The sooner our influence is diminished the better. Bad news for the strutting politicians and the warmongers, good news for the poor of all nations (including our own) who are usually the first to suffer.

 

As for UK folk getting poorer, canny Leave voters realised that 43 years of membership of the capitalist club hadn't improved their lives in that amount of time and was extremely unlikely to do so in the future.

So by being a poorer, less influential country will be better for poor people in this country?

We were already smaller and poorer before we even voted to leave the EU.

The days of the British Empire are well gone and our power and influence went with it.

How much power and influence do you think Europe has with nations such as China, Russia and North Korea?

Stop fooling yourselves, we are a minor power in the world today whether in or out of Europe and even the USA doesn't have the clout they once had.

The world order is changing and that is nothing to do with Brexit.

You can't put a price on freedom so of course it should be Brexit at any cost. Our country didn't fight and win two World wars to be ruled from Brussels. Given the choice between living on bread and water and being in the eu then I'd be happy to live on bread and water.

Classic!!!

 

Yes we are a small country now - we are insignificant in terms of the world, and as a result of us committing suicide (aka vote Leave) in June 2016 we have so, so little influence on the world...

 

Why?

 

Because we chose this direction - applause to all those that brought us to this state. </sarcasm>

 

Was this what was promised - "vote leave and have no control over what the rest of the world does to us"?

I don't remember that on the side of the bus.

 

It just goes to show that we were lied to by the establishment and many of you believed it and went along with it.

 

Queue up behind the blonde buffoon to get some poverty aid  - oh I forgot, he's off in his nice little mansion paid for by us, the taxpayer, living it up as a sexist, racist, liar, cheat and bully.

Well, get used to it - oh, I forgot, the water is owned by the Spanish, and the queues at the docks won't let the flour in...

 

You and your kind have shafted the country royally and your children will never forgive you...

 

Happy now?

From July 2020.

https://www.investopedia.com/articles/investing/042915/how-uk-makes-money.asp#:~:text=With a 2019 gross domestic,largest economy in the world.

 

6th best economy in the world.  Not bad for a 'insignificant, poor, little island'.

 

2019 figures... and heading south.

 

"The services sector—which comprises many industries including finance, retail, and entertainment—accounts for more than three-quarters of the U.K.'s GDP"

 

And which sector is bailing out of the UK????

 

Yes, you guessed it, the services sector - so your little leave vote in 2016 means that up to 75% of our GDP will be heading to the EU (which we were once part of and benefited massively from).

 

But hey, you armchair economists knew better...

 

Enjoy your life, and don;'t be surprised when your children hate you for what you have done to their futures.,

So go on then.  I've offered recently hard, factual statistics, (you may have missed the but in the article that states' updated July 2020'), what are you bringing to the factual argument here other than, baseless, hollow

comments that mean you really have nothing. 

 

Come on, provide factual evidence as to where the UK economy sits in the world?
