Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

I read some in the EU are worried that the UK may become Singapore-on-Thames. Well they should concentrate on dealing with Ireland which already is become that, a tax haven? Seems the Irish are upset they are misunderstood The country has faced increasing criticism of its corporate tax policies, wi...

Re: Bells on bikes

I’ve read much but not all of this thread and wondered whether the purpose of a bell rather than its application has been discussed. To me it’s an audible device that is used to draw attention to one’s presence. The thread seems to have concentrated on the interaction between cyclist and pedestrian...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

It might be interesting to do a what if and suppose that the GFA requirements are left to the period when the trade talks are being discussed. We are in a transitional period where nothing changes. we have left but follow EU rules so the borderlessness is intact. We can extend this period by mutual...

... and with it make it more easy to detect illegal migrants Without a really intrusive ID system, I don't see how that would work.

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

I am not castigating the EU for pursuing their self interest just stop pretending they are really suporting the GFA and Eire. The foolish May thought it was about the GFA I suspect then when the EU shot down the possibility of using tech to solve the border problem, it became clear it wasnt the GFA...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

The population of the UK is 20 million more than in 1945. Though mechanization and other advances have increased yield, with some rather profound undesirable consequences, it must be said. What I meant was that not many in food producing areas like Lincs will go short of food. It may be a very diff...
