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

No its not, when we get back control of our fisheries we can then talk to our neighbours and sort out historic fishing grounds and end the scandal of foreign owned boats operating under our flag..... We can do that now as it has nothing to do with the EU. It is the UK (Westminster) that allows fore...

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

Well, there were diminishing fish stocks due to the stupid CFP rules on by catch which Hugh FW drew attention to. Huge numbers of eddible dead fish being thrown back wholesale. As for the Scallop Wars in the bay of the Seine that has been sorted. There are quite a few areas in which various fishing...

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

.....the UK to control its our borders and fisheries (by control I mean to reform the reciprocal fishing agreements presently working unfairly in favour of other countries)..... Not possible and not affected by the EU. UK waters are too small to effectively manage fish populations (fish don't respe...

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

What do all you Remainers actually really honestly want? To have a referendum on the issues based on fact rather than lies and deception. Nobody stands any chance of making the right decision (for themselves) when the information their decision is based on is untrue. If people want to leave the EU ...

Re: Prescription Charges

What I can't understand is that so many are saying the change (or their not knowing about the change) has messed-up their retirement planning, but even cursory "planning" would have highlighted the change. If you spend your whole life knowing that you are going to receive your OAP at 60, ...

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

Just heard Chrispin Blunt (Blunt?), who is a prominent leaver I think, state on BBC's PM that we should, "start to see the benefit of Brexit in a decade"! :shock: Too late for me then. :( You couldn't make it up. He's being more optimistic than Mogg Jacob Rees-Mogg says the benefits of le...

You might be right. Remainers didn't predict the £ would crash, didn't predict growth way below other EU member states, didn't predict stalled business investment, etc.

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

..... It's one thing, calling a vote on a subject hardly anyone knows anything about. That's standard democracy. But to try and discern what actions would satisfy an electorate that knows nothing about the subject, yet still sets a bunch of impossible and inconsistent conditions? Well, that's the w...

Re: Prescription Charges

............ And any one of those checks would have highlighted the pension age checks. Exactly the point again. They moved the goal-posts and millions of people didn't know and weren't kept informed of the rules being changed. What I can't understand is that so many are saying the change (or their...

Re: Prescription Charges

Do go and get independent advice. We are in the middle of that process at the moment. It is very easy to have an inadequate NI contributions record (at least that is what I've found) and options to buy additional contributions are limited (I am told). Hence the need to plan hence the need to make c...

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

The argument that those politicians who supported Remain and are now objecting to what they see as a bad deal, are undemocratic in not being prepared to simply rubber stamp whatever deal is presented to them (or equally agree to a 'no deal' Brexit), is absurd. That isnt the argument which is being ...

Re: Prescription Charges

My comment is completely true. I received letters from the government, I received information from my employer. I received information from my private pension company. When I make plans for my future I check on variables rather than make assumptions. This is exactly the point. We received no notice...
