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

(snip) My concerns about the EU is with free movement which I believe has contributed substantially to the housing crisis, and cheap EU labour which has depressed wages for the poorest. Both these factors have weighed heavily on our young people. In addition the EU is fundamentally remote undemocra...

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

When you bring a workforce with you and include it in the management process and decision making,include it in profits and work with that workforce,those people feel part of the company,they feel wanted and worth something. What I witnessed in industry in the 70's and 80's was a class system,which ...

Yes I am sure that all those people who are on zero hours contracts today are eternally grateful for that.

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

Come on...industrial grief at Longbridge was legendary, Torchy spent most of his time fighting industrial fires instead of driving up quality which was the main problem. So first you say that it is the workers' fault.... My time as a manager in SWales taught me that. We had a recievership caused by...

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

Trabbies...you must be joking!, Whilst I don't understand the appeal of the Splitscreen vans or swing-axle Beetles, Trabants are another kettle of fish. From the first generation Trabants in 1957/8 they featured front wheel drive, fully independent suspension. A transverse 600 cc engine with 4 spee...

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

It's never been about the will of the people. Bizarrely it's not even about what's good for the country, if it were those advocating it would actually know how the country works and how we'd work outside the EU yet they appear to know neither. Which begs the question; what exactly is it about? Not ...

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

Thanks for that but it's not so bad because I got quite a big payout - not six figures but not that far off. I don't think it was Thatcher or the unions so much as the management that screwed up our manufacturing industry. For example I've just been reading a series of books on motorcycling in the ...

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'

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...
