Brexit Phase Two - Trade

Why on earth would the heads of international companies oppose reckless and unplanned change which every study barring those which move the goalpost forecast us to be worse off? Because they'r enot as brave as someone with no responsibly to their workforce or shareholders. Glad you Brexplained it.

Brexplaining: Using fantasy and wishful thinking to explain why you're right and those with experience don't have a clue.
Can’t say I’ve seen those forecasters saying we’d be worse off. I’ve seen plenty of opinion to fit an agenda. I’ve seen mid to long term assessments saying that brexit won’t negatively impact the UKs economy. I’ve heard a lot of speculation post referendum that we’ve seen to be incorrect.

They’ll be ups and downs.

As I’ve said before. If they offered riches over democracy, I’d go for democracy over and over again.
 
Deliberately wrecking the project as we don't like the consequences of our decision to leave, what could possibly go wrong ?

Apart from contracts leaving the UK of course, shortly followed by engineers who'd rather be employed in the EU than unemployed in the UK. Which is of course now starting to happen.

And design our own system, just as good, but cheaper? Why didn't they just add "with blackjack and hookers" after it, be just as realistic. It can be done of course, just not at a cost anyone will be happy with. Still, I'm sure the usual suspects will be happy to take a few hundred million off your hands to produce a study stating the bleeding obvious. Or we can pay the US a few billion to stick a teeny tiny Union Flag somewhere on the GPS system.

And finally if we keep wrecking ESA projects we're not going to last long before we get thrown out. This is nonsense on stilts.
This just temper tantrums. And we see this from JC in the Commons telling the HS to resign when his own party is the instigator of the entire mess- and don't tell me they weren't told in 2008. When will you get the fact that just because we want to leave the EU as an organisation does not mean we want to isolate Europe and in typical Socialist fashion the bribes are emerging from the woodwork showing themselves for what they are. Get this we have companies here who make satelites, we can still contribute to the scientific community without a blue flag with 12 stars on it which means absolutley nothing. I still have some EU notepaper from my Mattheus days 20 odd years ago. Before we get thrown out. who the hell do they think they are?
 
IDS on sky news at the mo. So it’s not a Customs Union. It’s a ‘Trade Arrangement’ and turning a blind eye to the Irish Border.
You couldn’t make this up.
It’s too complicated, we’ll just ignore it. This could be a real hoot and turn the entire island into a Wild West for trade.
Well technically he's right between Ireland and us. The EU accepted the CTA. It's a point I've been trying to get across. It could be accepted as it was an arrangement between two countries who had been part of a whole country before.
 
Well hurrah. Somethings working
From Davis

‘The technology to deliver a near frictionless border including number plate recognition, authorised economic operater system and electronic pre authorisation already existed and the government had started talks with potential suppliers’

I wonder who...........
er Customs, my ex lot- told you
 
Who's going to move abroad? I bet only 1% of the population have the skills and the motivation to do so.

I work for a small multi-national. The traffic is the other way. We have far more EU nationals in our UK offices than Brits working in the EU offices.

You're without a Scooby to put it bluntly. I could move to Berlin tomorrow if needed, if starts going tits up I will. Dev work is already being moved out of the UK.

Same. The EU won't make it difficult for British talent to relocate in the event of brexit
 
The Lords should be mindful of just how thin the ice that they skate on is.

Despite it being widely acknowledged how invaluable their services are, there is a growing movement to have them consigned to history.
Slippery slope. Today the lord's, tomorrow the monarchy

Indeed a slippery slope.

But any Peer who feels that accepting the public coin to attend the HoL and then get their fat swede down instead of conducting business, needs to be put on notice.

The Monarchy have upped their game in the last generation for good reason, and to good effect, silencing much of the criticism.

Unlike the HoL.

I quite agree. But these things have a momentum

The malingerers do let down the hard working Lord's and Ladies. Although, the ratio of slackers to workers I don't know.

Bishop's should be punted out immediately as possible in my view
 
The EU, despite its pretensions as a 'United States of Europe' is nothing of the sort. Job mobility is very low outside spud pickers.
This you posting your CV?
 
They come here because the opportunities for this particular branch of IT are better in the UK than in many other parts of Europe. The company also runs a world class training program. Some of the EU citizens who've trained with us have then gone back to their own country to open branches of the company there (Spain being a good example).

With offices inside the EU (as well as in the UK), we've already largely guarded against the problems of Brexit.

"I'm alright Jack and feck the Nissan workers in Sunderland" then?

As I've said, I could go to Germany tomorrow, my job is as safe as any perm job is in this industry and I'm insulated from the effects of Brexit. I'm much more concerned about the long term future of the UK and Europe though.

Well there is one thing we both fully agree on.
 
Seems to have quite a successful track record.

Big money (Sorros, Blair eat al) doesn’t want brexit to happen as it’ll impact on their € investments.

Fur somebody who claims to want brexit to happen because we voted for it, you seem to be peddling a lot of remain pish.
There you go hearing what I didn't say again. Saying that Brexit must happen isn't the same as wanting it to happen. I demonstrably thought and still think it will diminish our country, it already has but it still must happen.

Get back to me when you can work out why.

On the peddling pish side, if I ever match you on that field I'll give my head a wobble.

The key word there is talent.
That's you stymied.
