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

Perhaps it is time to go back to the EU to point out why we voted Leave and suggest what the EU should do to reform itself as the price they must pay to encourage us to stay? That's actually a good idea. Well it would be if the EU didn't know already. However, the EU leaders and administrators read...

The EU is an unresponsive, corrupt, protectionist undemocratic organisation on a single minded trajectory to become a Superstate. Media statements clearly demonstrate that its policies and major decisions are dictated by its founders and major paymasters Germany and France, hardly any other country...

What consequences are those? They still seem to be trading.

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

It's not all about economics, a mistake leavers make. But then people who hate Britain and former Brits who choose to live in the EU ceaselessly whinge and will never look for the positives. Glad the latter can't vote in referendums, as it should be... How does moving to another part of the EU make...

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

I worry that neither Corbyn nor May could negotiate themselves out of a paper bag. I am not brimming with optimism.

I expect if we finally leave the customs union the Irish border will work in a similar way. Well I assume it would but only if the UK and/or Northern Ireland were members of the Single Market and had implemented the same regulatory frameworks. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Sweden and Norway do still...
