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

If some of the content of the last couple of pages are what we are to expect from Brexit Britain then I, for one, prefer mainland Europe for all it's shortcomings. Shotgun toting ex-army types defending their stockpiled food against the poor and weaker. The problem with stockpiles is that they soon ...

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

Prepare - how? Stockpile food perhaps? The Hitchhikers Guide says "Expect the Unexpected". With that in mind I've stocked up on pencils: You can use them to re-educate humanity after 'the fall'. They make good emergency weapons (easily concealed, and a superficially none threatening appea...

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

and it seems to be not just the hackles of out and out racists but ordinary folk who live in areas that attract large numbers of immigrants Brexit seems to have been very popular in areas without a lot of immigrants. It's a complicated picture, but one element is about people fearing what they do n...

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

Actually, Obama's intervention supposedly in favour of Remain is said by some to have worked for Leave. It certainly made my blood boil. He went from hero to zero in a few words. If you want foreign interference swinging it for Leave you have it there. Now there's a thought, perhaps Trump could sor...

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

Lance D. I take your point but it's not all one-sided and straightforward. For example after a notable legal challenge Gina Millar was called all sorts of really terrible things in the press. And the Judges of the same were "enemies of the people", a headline that stuck in my craw and stay...

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

^^ And yet you use the words "fools" and "childish behaviour" to describe them. Hey, all we are asking for here are some real concrete benefits to be clearly stated? Is that too tall an order? One could also say a sign of mass hypnotism is a group of people charging into some sel...

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

Now you arent presenting arguments you are getting personal so you get switched off.. :D Al It not personal as such, it is my view of the stock market as a whole, for it has no morals. Arguments have been brought to the discussion by myself and others. Yet anything that doesn't fit the view you hol...

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

I was in Canada last year and in Vancouver and Victoria it was full of escapees from the rest of it. When questioned they were from the Middle and East of Canada escaping from the dreadful winters. And… you have to wear a helmet there, its the law! Very nice place though. I see the £ is up today… S...

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

Ah.. The unwavering optimistic comments… ! But you are wrong the job losses and slump were forecast to be immediate, they never happened. Tbe overvalued £ slipped back a tad and that no doubt increased our competitive position. Al That's not right. The forecast was made about the cost of leaving. W...

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

FWIW I understand the referendum point but majorities and demographics change. If what was so rashly promised at that time becomes impossible then another vote on a final deal seems fair enough. Just because one accepts the referendum it does not mean that further campaigning against thevresult shou...

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

Black and White. We're all going round in circles. Remain voters want us to stop where we are safe and cosy. Leave voters want us to move forward into the unknown. I'm out. The circle is becoming boring. To portray it as such is oversimpification of the "head in the sand" variety! And may...

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

Continuation of Free Trade with the EU, and the ability to trade freely on agreed terms with whomsoever else we want to, control our own borders and fisheries and restoring the supremacy of our own parliament. Thats the plan, its as simple as that, no what ifs, no obsfucation, no caveats. No point ...

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

I don't think any of these business assessments are worth the trouble to write about. Simply because at the moment there is no definite agreement about almost anything one cares to mention. What I do know is that the weakness of the pound, driven by that uncertainty, increases the cost of many thing...
