Brexit Phase Two - Trade

Ole, populism is the new reality in EUtopia.... see the EUSSRs desire to outlaw it
Your populism is a passing brainfart which cannot deliver on its promises. That is the lesson of Brexit. A protest vote which was marginally too successful.

Hence the fine mess it's gotten us into.
 
This will please the European Commission.

Theresa May pledges to slash taxes to lowest rate in G20 to make Britain a post-Brexit economic powerhouse


It's the thing the Commission dread most after Brexit. A low tax, lightly regulated UK will attract business and investment away from the EU. In addition, companies will move their HQ's to the UK to take advantage of the lower tax rates.

Wait for Barnier, Juncker, Verhofstadt and the other suspects to throw their toys out of the pram over the next few days.

It also means the chances of a hard Brexit have increased - no way do the EU want an UK becoming ever more efficient through lower taxes and less regulation to have easy access to the single market. We'll start to drive EU manufacturers out of business.

The oft trotted out lie, big business wants low regulation.

I'm not posting yet again, but pretty much every industry has told parliamentary committees that regulatory divergence will result in expensive red tape since most of them are here as a gateway to trade with the EU. The already low regulation casino money laundering operation in London being a notable exception.

You'll be banging on about trickle down economics next. You are truly a useful idiot of the super wealthy, it seems

Exactly the kind of tit for tat political shite that has started many a war.

But, Mousie, thou art no thy-lane,
In proving foresight may be vain;
The best-laid schemes o' mice an' men
Gang aft agley,
An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,
For promis'd joy!
I don't know what you're smoking, but can you post me some of it?

Reducing tax and regulation to make the economy run more efficiently is a perfectly reasonable economic course of action.

It's a sad reflection of British politics that most people accept that political parties of all hues lie through their teeth. It's become so accepted that people just shrug their shoulders and let them get on with it.

Wordsmith
Speaking of lying through ones teeth, how do you square the promise of a more prosperous future you sold your community with the ugly reality that even JRM doesn't expect anything positive to come about for 50 years?
 
Reuters reports that 630 finance jobs have departed the city, with a further 5000 in the event of a hard brexit.

Deluded fantasists such as Turdsmith will chanting 'deregulate' incessantly, without acknowledging that the city is already deregulated to death and that deregulation caused the crash 10 years ago.
 
Your populism is a passing brainfart which cannot deliver on its promises. That is the lesson of Brexit. A protest vote which was marginally too successful.

A cautionary lesson to the EU MS, and will reduce the chances of a MS banging out in the future.

You sound like the Russian politburo in the 80’s convincing themselves this Solidarity nonsense was just a passing fad.

You mean an ever more regulated high tax economy isn’t good for jobs?
See the EU and it’s intractable unemployment problem.
 
Europe played a valuable role from the mid 70s all the way through to the peace process and hopefully beyond this Brexit foul up.
so what your'e saying is that a member of the EEC had their actions in murdering British people/ Soldiers on sovereign territory condoned by the EEC. On what basis would that be?Cos I remember not one squeak from the EEC at any time
 
It's going down the pan, tits up, in reverse, at high speed...the delusions are fading, the dreams turned to nightmares, chances fading as reality looms...but "we won the vote" echoes on in the geriatric care homes and rusty containers in the shite holes of Britain. Who can they blame? That's the next thing that they will be dribbling about!
Best get that bergan packed then blow in. Piss of before the borders are clogged ! Still got that Canuck passport ?
 
No I’m not.

Not withstanding the back room dealings that never made the headlines, the deal was struck between the main players. The EU did what it always does. Turn up at the end at claims involvement at a later date.

Remember the EU is now claiming it was the defacto reason for the end of the Cold War.
Which is classic, because it wasn't in existence then and two members of the EEC were diametrically opposed to reunification of Germany, namely, us and the French. It was the Allies not the EEC that permitted it.
 
JC has called his joker and supported the second referendum to win the possible General election.

So we have the MayBot fighting the leave corner but really wants to stay.

JC fighting the stay corner but the Commie really wants to leave.

And people actually think that this cake and arse party is going to turn out “alright on the night “
Now come on don't be selective, He wants remain as as option on the paper.

Actually, it was a bit more murkier than that.

The european dream has been driven by France and Germany. (Quite a fascinating topic. The european iron and steel community was pushed as France lost its supply of coal when it gave up the Saar reagion so it found itself with a load of iron ore for steel production but was cut off from its coal supply in Germany)

As I say. France and Germany have both strived for a United Europe, which was one of the reasons why the Vichy French were so supportive in the last round of unpleasantness. The Germans however being german and slightly more switched on realised that political unity had to come before financial union, but the French wanted to push ahead with glfinancial union before political union. One of the obligations that Germany United post Cold War by the French was that Germany was forced into accepting financial union coming first.

In spite of Maggie's rhetoric, I do not see how the unification of Germany after the fall of Communism was otherwise than inevitable, so blowing into the wind was pointless.
 
What about the rest of the country conveniently ignored over the years, see any growth there.
Have you driven around Liverpool centre recently, site cranes abound.

If you have any spare cash to stash away, invest in tobacconists and opticians.
The Chinese students have arrived.

The good news?
The average obesity rate in young ladies has dropped, in the town centre at least.
