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

So if I understand what Leo Varadkar says, then if you were born in N.Ireland then you will remain an EU citizen and continue to enjoy "the rights and freedoms" associated with that citizenship? But presumably if you are British but live as a full resident in N Ireland you will not. Tricky...

Re: Online multi location mapping - old dog requires new tricks advice, please

Forgive me for being thick regarding mapping software. But why doesn't the OP merely carry an OS map with the places marked in a pencil cross? Seems a lot simpler to me. Ps. There is at least one benchmark not on the Snowdonia map. I thought the resolution/ detail too poor to be useful. Perhaps zoom...

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

Nether the less, we will be leaving the Common Fisheries Policy. Al Yet as has been pointed out, before such supranational control was introduced, our fishermen managed to reduce fish stocks to precarious levels. Things are now better than before. More sustainable all round. I think if the fish had...

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

What do all you Remainers actually really honestly want? I want what is best for Europe. By extension, that is also as it happens, what is best for Britain and indeed the world. Not a popular or widely held view, I accept. ^^^+1 Wot he said in one sentence rather than my over wordy manner. :( But s...

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...

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

These same politicians told the electorate that it would be a bad Brexit but they voted for it anyway. But hang on, that suggests that there was no "Leave" campaign. Actually many people chose to believe Farage, Gove(where is he?) and Johnson etc. all the stuff they said would be easy to ...

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

The Euro is not the EU and the EU is not the Euro. Personally I dont think of Europe as the EU, my comment about the land grabs is nothing to do with the EU, it was about bad things that happened in the past . The EU will eventually disintegrate. Empires always do, especially undemocratic ones. Whe...

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

For a start you werent aware of the land grabs because you wouldnt have asked that question! Why arent the Club Med clamOURing to leave - because as a result of joining the Euro they are now deeply in hoc to the EU! We have the same influence as Lithuania - great! The rest are just your pessimistic...

We're all ears Meic! I know you are one of the more listening posters in this thread. But I have to say that is one of the most incorrect things I have seen posted in 537 pages. However I dont doubt your sincerity in making it. Well I do try. And others do to, IMV As to it being "one of the mo...

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

who knows you may change my opinion I have neither the desire nor the ability to do that. All I have is the (slight) desire and limited ability to do is get people on this thread to listen to what leave voters say, rather than just keep shouting at them. We're all ears Meic! But if we answer those ...
