Brexit Phase Two - Trade

Having lived and worked in both Europe and the US (Silicon valley) I find the US has a lot less understanding of the rest of the world than anyone in Europe.

Fendt, big German outfit, you May have heard if it, followed the route of a number of other German firms and required all its staff to learn English... have a think about that with your EUrofixated colossal brain.

Your point being? Other than it is easy to work with European companies as they learn English? Actually AFAIK all professionals in Europe speak English at least I have not come across any who don't. A lot of the clerical staff also as English seems to be the main Pan European language. (which pisses off the French :) )

BTW £6Bn is a drop in the ocean compared to the industries that do work pan European and don't want Brexit .
 
Bring it on, with a much more informed electorate. If a further referendum returns the same result, so be it, but many either didn't vote or voted without any understanding of the magnitude or impact of what they were doing originally (because Remain ran such a poor (if apparently expensive) information campaign).

Seriously, how do you know why people voted the way they did?

I don't care if you're remain or brexit, no one knows the reasons another votes the way they did or why they didn't vote at all unless you ask them individually. Did you do that?

Barnier over the last two years has been Brexiteers best advertisement for leaving the EU

Without wishing to be melodramatic, 9/11 changed border security for good. The halcyon days of being waved through or stamped in without a second thought have disappeared forever...
Woke up one morning. The Ex is freaking out.
‘What’s up now’
‘ I’ve missed my plane’.
‘Balls, it’s 7 am’.
‘It should have been yesterday’.
Don’t laugh. Don’t laugh.
A ton of phone calls. ‘You’re in luck skid, massive plane crash yesterday. The place is empty, get her up, we’ll get her a seat’.

After 9/11 everything went down the pan. Air travel used to be fun (except for sky vans).

One of the most ardent Remainers at work didn’t vote in the referendum.... he was busy away on holiday. Appatebtky that’s the advantage of such a high level of edukashun, postal ballots escape you.

And the only feasible way to ask them individually is by a 2nd referendum. My point of view is only through my observation of the reaction of individuals interviewed in the media, along with places like Grimsby which voted to leave but now (apparently) still wants their EU subsidy. I think many sleep-walked into the referendum, though ignorance, indolence or flag-waving ideology (be that pro- or anti-EU). I think (and feel free to disagree, as I'm sure many will) that the consequences (and vision) of a post-Brexit UK are much better known by the electorate now than they were in 2016, so a 2nd referendum (which also told us how we'll leave the EU, rather than simply that we would) is justified, logical and could also be a unifying rather than divisive exercise for a currently deeply divided nation.

That explains why you don't understand. A hobby business with a few car parts. .

I work with major companies in Defence, Aerospace and Automotive. Europe is a LOT easier to deal with than the US. All the Europeans we work with work in English (but then none of them are back street garages)

Europe IS open for business as many of the companies we deal with are pan European (that includes the UK). SO once you get out of the cottage industries to the professional sectors dealing with Europe is a breeze.

I also note that it is the professioals who were pro remain and the less educated (mechanics? ) who voted leave.
I'd rather listen to the smaller businesses.

Does that mean Europe is open for business?
 
Haven't got a clue, you finished with than....

Of course I could just accept that it's a typo and crack or or I could make a big thing of something, misquote and ask questions.....
 
all existing EU subsidies can be continued. Just directly paid from Westminster rather than routed via Brussels.
They'll not be though. They'll be given away as tax cuts to the already wealthy.

Why do you think we have a shortage of staff in UKBF and Plod? Ideology should be the clue.
 
Bollox. Relying on a statistical breakdown from polls. Polls that have been ever so accurate over the last couple of elections and a referendum.

There is absolutely no way of knowing who voted which way unless you are privy to the electoral register, the ballot papers and can get each voter to fill in a questionnaire as they vote.
You need to look at the type of people who partake in polls. I’ve rejected their advances numerous times in the past. I’ve been too busy.

I’ve decided to change that. I dod my first Ipso Mori poll the other day. Took me twenty minutes to partake. When the pollsters keep targeting the chattering classes with time on their hands they’ll get skewed results. I find it difficult to believe they put too much time in pounding the streets in Wester Hailes . Best to ask the nice people of Crammond.

Like PhotEx, who probably doesn't have a registered business and takes more out of the country than he contributes?

You're challenging your own alteration of my post.

You not having a clue is the most honest post you've made to date.
