well surely that's the point, so on what basis do you say that the leave vote was misled. The distinction is that what is nothing less than a campaign slogan daubed on the side of a bus. it's meant to be eye catching-does it have to be true? Broadly if you equated the sum sent to Brussels with then NHS then something can be massaged.
Now when Brown said "British the jobs for British workers"-what did that actually mean?

'It's meant to be eye catching does it have to be true',
That's the brexit campaign in one sentence.
Well done you.

Interesting fact buried there: Barnier was Juncker’s rival for the top job. Juncker’s tenure is up next year. Maybe Barnier’s hardman stance on Brexit negotiations is an attempt to make him look like a ‘strong and stable’ successor when the time comes?
That was pointed out two years ago when he was made chief negotiator. Which mightily pissed off Guy Verhofstadt who also sees himself as Juncker's replacement so ensured that he would be lead spokesman for the EU Parliament. Both have had their noses put out of joint by Martin Selmayr slipping in unannounced to be deputy to Junker and positioning himself for the top spot.

There will be a lot of angst and blood over this but the electorate won't be asked to bother themselves over who will be the top politician in the EU!

Why didnt the brexiters pick up on on this on jobs creation and inward investment .

£26,000 a head. Just for the training course. That's what the Dept. For International Trade is paying Deloittes to train up 100 staff for trade dispute resolution. The EU do that for us at the moment... imagine their salaries on top of that... every year!

I'd be far more impressed if Parliament was more generous with Legal aid in civil matters- that would sort things out in a hurry.

It’s all a bit like a corrupt Roman imperial court with chancers manouvering with the Senate to be the next Caesar.

Treaty of Rome begats a new Roman Empire.

Ah good riposte ignore the question.
You said it. You admitted it in print.
There was no question
It was your response. The response being.
'It's meant to be eye catching, is it meant to be true?'

Quite frankly, we British expect that sort of thing. Not having realised that the leave camp didn't really care about honesty or accuracy.
It's a lesson learned.

ah Pot kettle syndrome, so British workers are those that can be imported and given a UK passport whilst low wage jobs rise. Did it never occur to you that the 1.4 Million unemployed stayed relatively the same, i.e those areas that never had work because the reason for their locations was gone. what to replace them with? They're still there. What does any camp really care about honesty and accuracy. The remainers were never going to change anything- they didn't have to, just so long as nothing changed.

You're all signed up for the Paris agreements- that'll mean change, less metal bashing, less mining-less production, longer lifetimes required for goods, that means lower production, less aviation, less tourism. It may have escape your purview but the Bridge disaster in Italy means a minor earthquake for Genoa- they can't move their goods out ( Euronews last night) except with some difficulty, that's thousands of containers that are slowed down with implications of JIT.

I presume you agree with the EU in relation to their potential trade deals with Iran which is direct conflict with US Policy- not that there are many European factories in the US8O . I don't know- US, Iran/Iran US. This is really desperation stakes for the EU isn't it. Notwithstanding the fact that the Oil rich states only have until until 2040 before their productivity will slow down-which is why Iran wants to go Nuclear.
 
Quite a few of the pro EU country’s have been in the recent past.
So was the British Empire and it's colonial children. You reckon this pish is relevant? Do you, like manofmanynames, have a collection of links and photographs of this kind of stuff? If you do, it's weird, full stop.
