Brexit Phase Two - Trade

The campaign in the run up to the referendum from both sides had no bearing on my vote, my mind was made up long before that from watching how the EU did its business for two decades running up to it since I started to take an interest in politics and world events in my teens.
Both campaigns were sh*t.

hence my own research.

either campaign, including the busses, barely registered.
 
If everyone is special , no one is special.

The Brexit delusion is that only the English are exceptional. Hence people stil bollocking on about Dunkirk, the Spanish Armada, two World Wars and one World Cup and God knows what else.

It always amuses me how much effort so many British expats devote to rubbishing Britain from wherever they’ve washed up abroad.
It’s almost as if they have a need to convince themselves they made the right move.

Have a resurrected 'like' as that is how I approached the referendum.

I think that many people had made their minds up but the campaign was aimed at the don't knows or waivering voter so became very emotive. Remain's problem, apart from the fact they lost, is the way they approached the referendum and how they have behaved since. All their publicity and approach was and continues to be negative. I have yet to see a Remain article which did not contain an element of Project Fear, which gave a rosy picture of life in the EU. All we get is 'Brexit Bad' with nothing pointing out why the EU would be good for us.

I feel that Farage and his backers should have been re-running the information from the Brexit campaign to remind the country why they voted Leave - too much media is now focussed on this soft, not leaving non Brexit that is May's deal as though there is no other way. A deal BTW which was wholly written by the EU, for the EU, and handed to the UK as fait accompli. Even on brexit the EU are telling us what to do and what is acceptable to the EU. Their way or the highway - well May should be taking the highway and forget messing about with any deal!

Time being wasted in parliament over a highly flawed and unworkable 'agreement' should be handed over to how we as a country are going to move forward, without the EU blocking and holding back everything the UK wants to do - ably assisted by many MPs!

You did research? It doesn't come across that way?

Cheer up. The WA should get binned soon
 
Do you think endless repeating the word remoaner adds gravitas to your posts, or makes you look like a twat?
He doesn't have to add remoaner to look like a twat. Has to be the worst paid dev in the world as well, the amount of times he self identifies as being one of the downtrodden masses.
 
I did more than you and didn't just sh*t myself when presented the question and go for the status quo. Because it's less scary.


Some MP was on tellie yesterday in Parliament… apparently she gets lots of letters from fearful frothers 'I didn't vote for Brexit, make not stop' Toddlers have better reasoning than most Remainers
 
poor you.

it's a hole.

Nandos is alright though.
Nando's? Is that what they mean when they say we will have "adequate food" then? We have different ideas of adequate.

Indeed.

Trouble is May will just go back to the EU and grovel some more. They are dangling her on a string and she is dancing to their tune. Not a very good British PM!

WRONG... It doesn't matter if a people are exceptional or not, what matters is they believe it. That belief fuels social capital, that can see a nation grow together and develop the resilience to deal with problems and crises.

To believe the way you do is a trap; it strips away peoples hope and belief in change and turns them into an even more selfish person and that person can in the short term, be relied on to see the benefits of an empire (especially so, if they have the wealth and education to enjoy the benefits of belonging to an empire). But, come a problem or crisis large enough to trigger the selfish people who have zero social capital, then an inevitable scientific calc will see serious disorder.

Brexit is a chance for the UK to reset itself, before its too late. But, the establishment don't want to lose their imperial connections.
 
Elsewhere, plans were also floated for a central London levy to fund facilities such as public toilets, parks and open spaces before being put 'on hold', partly because of uncertainty over Brexit.
Not even public toilets are immune to Brexit. Move over @earth, We will all need a bit of street to defecate in before long.

Councils look for tourist tax powers

That's all you choose to see. You've been given the benefits of EU membership before and ignore them.

If someone points out what Abe has just said, that Japan uses the UK as a gateway to the EU and this creates jobs for the UK, you'll bang on with a "crazy" spelling project fear rely response. Refusing to look at the very real benefits or consequences of leaving.
