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

It's not perfect- that's a given - but I would personally like to see is stay at the round table and negotiate with the power of the Referendum result as bargaining chip. ((I actually think that's what J...

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

Yes, slightly weaker was great. Helped our competitiveness wasnt that bad for consumers, very annoying for expat pensioners and holidaymakers, but, a run on the pound will be something else. Be very afraid because the banksters will have a field day shorting everything and it will be very painful i...

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

Vote Labour, you wont get Brexit, you will get a run on the pound, economic collapse and industrial and public sector chaos just like we had in the 70s. Al A run on the pound? For 1400 pages you have extolled the BENEFITS of a WEAK pound. Numerous times. But now you suddenly see it as a bad thing?....

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

Just focussing on negative aspects of everything just leaves one bitter and twisted... Focussing on positive things helps one and everyone else move onward and upwards. Guess what I'm thinking....

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

Yuuuup! It's all their fault, the wicked Tories. Four legs good two legs bad. The situation is that many of the ills you mention require investment to produce the wealth that ultimately pays for social services and care of the vulnerable. The Soviet Union and it's satellites collapsed and China adop...

As an independent Nation State we will be no one's puppet. Asserting that we will, again demonstrates lack of confidence in Britain.

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

Its such a shame that so many people have such low confidence in our ability to govern ourselves. But its principally them that want to remain as puppets of the EU. Anyway.. onwards and upwards Al How much is Brexit worth? Some folks say it's okay to accept short term hardship to get out of the EU....

Yes, a bit like a Scot seeking Independence, no confidence in the UK in their case, same with me and the EU, I have no confidence in it and believe it holds us back. On another subject I am missing posts from 661pete. Here is his last post https://forum.cyclinguk.org/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=133246&...

Well, its our money that we have had to give to the Superstate to distribute to dodgy schemes all over Europe. Sorting the flood damage is an ideal opportunity to get some of it back. Well done Boris! :D Al It's not our money. Successive governments, freely elected, agreed to these payments. Just l...

Chris Boardman now on BBC Question Time!
Edit

Re: Any Carers here?

Thanks to you all for your encouraging and kind comments. I have now been to one or two carers meetings but havent felt they have helped me not finding any kindred spirits amongst those present. Everyone wants to tell you their story and I find it depressing. So I have joined the U3A and attended so...
