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

As far as I can see, and lots of others see it, the next step after EU is United States of Europe. May not happen this decade or the next, or even before I'm in my dotage, but it will happen. Get out whilst we can. You seem dislike federal states. Do you think that the United States of America shou...

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

I can try and check that, although the quote I provided suggests that the Folkeregister only keeps sufficient information in order to supply the ID service. I understand it would be relatively simple to devise an ID service in which the individual has control of the data. The same goes for a medica...

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

..... Perhaps she didn't agree with May's claim, that Brexit means Brexit. I is surprising how narrow minded so many of our (mainly Brexit) MPs seem to be in that they can only "see" one form of Brexit (their ideological form). They cannot appreciate that the single Leave or Remain questi...

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

I suppose it would work along the lines of May's 'hostile environment'. The onus would be on landlords, employers and others to enforce the law, and they would be the ones expected to check credentials. These unpaid agents of the state, living in constant fear of prosecution, overzealously apply th...

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

Hello there, Dragging religion into this process is quite unhelpful & unnecessary, too divisive! I dunno, it seems quite appropriate, given that Brexit appears to be some sort of rapture based belief system that actively denies the need to listen to any sort of expert (except those "expert...

Yes it is shocking how the EU is interfering the internal politics of a member state, that is by giving the UK's clearly unpopular government more time to try to sort out a political mess of their own making.

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

Sorry but no, most people can't completely choose what information they have about you. Even if you don't have an account with them, they use tricks like... Yes, true. And that's why regulations need to be tightened. It doesn't follow though, that because Google is tracking us, we're all happy abou...

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

I have a lot less of an issue with people like Facebook tracking some weird number ID that means nothing to them. They might be able to collect some marketing info e.g. people that like cheesecake also play 5-a-side football, but lack of my name/address/personally identifiable info keeps me anonymo...

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

Over an hour now. Nothing yet. Hopefully that slogan (" Nothing to hide, nothing to fear ") has had its day. In relation to Brexit - this subject is the one that puts me most at odds with other EU states. In many countries identity cards are routinely abused, disproportionately affecting ...

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

I was thinking that HMRC have your address on file (for people living in the UK - they post you letters), DVLA have your address on file (they post you letters), etc.. So when government are looking for proof as to where you are living and historical records of address the various different sources...

The government has literally paid him to live and work here the whole time and now they're saying that they can't confirm the fact from their own records! I'm not sure if this is another Windrush or if this government would contrive to run out of alcoholic drinks at an event in a brewery! :roll: Th...

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

Care to explain? I'd also really, really like to hear how the EU interferes with the internal affairs of member countries. Easy. We have to comply with vehicle safety regulations, for a start. How dare they! They force us to privatise our power, water and railways. They make us sell weapons to the ...
