Re: May could kick Brexit into the long grass.

I think the anti-EU sentiment among those of us who dislike that institution would be stronger than we have ever seen it before. But I hope Brexit voters have more than anti EU sentiment as a reason? Although it is clear that broadly speaking that is what it was/is. Indeed I would still be glad to ...

Re: May could kick Brexit into the long grass.

I am happy to adjust to nearly everything. The one thing I will not give up without a fight is my European Citizenship. For it is potentially being taken away from me without good reason. I am a law abiding decent citizen of Europe and I will go onto the street to protect it. It is more important to...

Re: Another Scottish Referendum just around the corner?

We closed the borders, folks, we nailed it. No trees, no plants, no immigrants. No foreign nurses, no Doctors; we smashed it. We took control of our affairs. No fresh air. No birds, no bees, no HIV, no Poles, no pollen. No pandas, no polar bears, no ice, no dice. No rainforests, no foraging, no Fran...

Re: Theresa May: Brexit-lite?

I hear Ireland is very nice this time of year. Oh hold on, that's in Europe, we can't go there anymore. Just to cheer you ( and us) up!! From Wiki:- "Under Irish law, all British citizens – including Manx people and Channel Islanders who are not entitled to take advantage of the European Union...

Re: Brexit consequences

[list=][/list] I work in a place where most people pride themselves on being very liberal and tolerant, but also where any dissent from their worldview can result in petty insults, rudeness and silly accusations. Can you guess what kind of workplace this might be? My desire to speculate is very stro...

Re: Brexit consequences

Theresa's speech was very brief if you saw it, less than a minute. She couldn't possibly spell out everything in that time. I think she was just saying that she would honour the referendum result without a parliamentary, no more referendums and the UK will definitely be leaving the EU. The only cir...

Re: Brexit consequences

Black bike; There is much truth in this assessment of the Remain campaign. The poor economic position since the 2008 crash combined with austerity policies implemented by the UK Govt (which blamed as much as possible on the EU) meant it was a poor time for the referendum due to the general disconten...

Re: Brexit consequences

I trust the BBC when it says our gross contributions are £361 million per week. Contribution is a word with a clear meaning. In the BBC article it indicates what we contribute to the EU, or as the bus text says, send to the EU. Send is a shorter, punchier word than contribute, better suited to bein...

Re: Brexit consequences

So it is an outright lie. And added to it the suggestion that the National Health would benefit to the tune of that amount straightaway upon Brexit. I do think it was believed by large numbers of people. Just as they believed the borders would come under our control again. I do not think either will...

Re: Pound to Euro parity by year end?

... I don't agree. Mervyn King failed to see or take action in 2008. It was a gigantic failure, an imbecile could have done better. IMO he should have gone then in disgrace.not retired on a guilt edged pension. So in the light of that ignore his advice and think that on balance, considering all the...

Re: Pound to Euro parity by year end?

Quote pwa" But the main point I was making is that economists do not see moderate devaluation of a currency as a completely bad thing for an economy. Mervyn King (who should know what he is talking about) said the Pound was far too high before the Brexit vote and he was expecting this sort of f...
