Brexit Phase Two - Trade

It's cute really. Rather than use their usual ARRSE account, they've created one just to reply to me. I'm flattered, the last time a poster acted like this was back in the days of Pentwyn.
Never understood the need for sock accounts for some people.
 
Enjoyers of Continental holidays rejoice; apparently EU passports are available to all! With intellectual powerhouses like AB in the government, what could possibly go wrong.

' "As an English person, I do have the right to go over to Ireland and I believe that I can ask for a passport. Can't I?" he said. After being reminded that this has absolutely nothing to do with his rights as an English person, Bridgen stated: "There's a reciprocal agreement where I can go to Ireland and ask for an Irish passport and someone from Ireland can come to the UK and ask for a British passport. We have that system. That's the system we have, isn't it?" Bridgen then reaffirmed his belief that he can come over and ask for an Irish passport and citizenship.'

That is genuinely quite funny. But it explains a part of our political classes-divorced from reality. Perhaps it is time to disband Parliament and go to online voting
 
In other news scientists are now convinced that they know where bears go to defecate and across the globe catholics are astonished to discover that the Pope shares their faith.
If only a trade specialist could examine the document...

They didn't consider the impact on British value chains or the immediate compliance costs to business. Cool. In other news, my analysis of relocating Australia to Saturn also finds the move would have negligible GDP impact when applying those caveats.

He does say that they've had a fair bash at modelling the impossible mind.

 
Another cunning French plot.
 
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am....

As if I would tell you... Let's put it like this, what you read in the press and the reality on the ground are two entirely different things.

What about the testimonies to the Select Committee of the House of Commons?

I take it you have been listening?
 
That's you, that is.

17 million voters failed to realise how magnificent an organisation the EU was - and the only reason they voted for Brexit was that they were persuaded by Sir Nigel of Farage.

Calm down sweet cheeks. I was just stating the obvious no need to get all precious if you want to hero worship NF who am I to stop you. I admire his ability to convert educated people into intolerant narcissists but apart from that, I think he's an utter twat.

Everyone needs a hero.

It's not; what you have there is a very neat summary of the situation as it stands. This is why No Deal planning continues. If it is not enacted now then we will not be ready on 29/03/19.
Another of May's many mistakes was not to prepare for a hard Brexit from the off. Her negotiating strategy could then have been "We're happy with a hard Brexit - offer us something better to prevent it".

Which I suspect would have brought forward a different response from the EU.

The cost of preparations for a hard Brexit would have been trivial to the potential downside of a hard Brexit we are not fully prepared for.

I believe its called "Contingency Planning".

PMTM is not in favour of a hard Brexit, for that would be really stupid.
