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

As for immigration its split 50/50 or there abouts EU/and other parts of the world and has been for some years,so if immigration is the problem,then why not cut the immigrants from where you have control of it? Because to do so would be racist. Of course it isn't racist. Unless you advocate entirel...

Re: Meteors ...

Geminids tonight (Wed). miserable weather but I've got a brief hour of clear skies forecast. And Moon doesn't rise until after 02:00. Peak rates around midnight (after my forecast clear skies "window"!). Probably 2nd best after the Persids but many rate Geminids higher - maybe because they...

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

...... Because to do so would be racist. Any immigration control that favours particular peoples (e.g. Europeans) over others (e.g. Pakistanis, Indians, Senegalese) is inherently racist. Our immigration controls need to be about what is good for our country's desired lifestyle and economy and not a...

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

..... If Remainers want to understand Leavers (and most probably don't) you need to recognise that beyond the extreme bigots there are a great many decent people with legitimate concerns that have been ignored for a long time . You disagree with their idea of a solution, but you could try thinking ...

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

Those are technical points that the EU is exploiting that in no way reflect the reality of the situation, There is no reason why they shouldnt be run at the same time, the soln is like simultaneous equations ( if you can remember your school maths ) they have to be solved together, maybe going back...

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

no it doesnt. Thats what the EU wants it to be. They have wanted to separate the 2 for their own benefit against the Uks interests. Mrs May is saying no way if we dont get waht we want you dont get what you want. It seems you want the Uk to meekly go along with what ever terms they impose They trad...

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

"Nothing is agreed until everything is agreed" We have made that clear from the start. A very sensible strategy in negotiations with a tricky fragmented multi agenda organisation like the EU. One disident amongst the 27 can wreak havoc. We have had a glimpse of that with Ireland the count...

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

"...nothing is agreed until everything is agreed." I can't recall any complex, multi-stranded, negotiations where this would have worked. Yes, can agree X subject to conditional y and z, but the latter cannot nullify the former without the whole falling. There must be stages of agreement....
