The Brexit Consequences Thread

I wouldn't touch it either, back in the U.S. Here in UK/EU it ain't that bad, maybe better quality ingredients?. So if there aren't many options around, I will go for it.
I'd rather eat a dockyard oyster than anything from MaccyD.
 
Not my "comments" underneath . . . they come with the video!

 
Not quite sure what message this is trying to convey . . . but someone must have spent time producing it and putting it on the interweb . . . .

If you really want to get an idea just how poorly the deal is for the UK, read the 40 "Hidden hoorors" courtesy of the Spectator: Link

Here's a sub-set:

The jurisdiction of the ECJ will last until eight years after the end of the transition period. (Article 158).

The UK will still be bound by any future changes to EU law in which it will have no say, not to mention having to comply with current law. (Article 6(2))

The UK will tied to EU foreign policy, “bound by the obligations stemming from the international agreements concluded by the Union” but unable to influence such decisions. (Article 124)

Articles 40-49 practically mandate the UK’s ongoing membership of the Customs Union in all but name.

The UK is bound by EU rules on procurement rules – which effectively forbids us from seeking better deals elsewhere. (Articles 75 to 78)

The UK will be liable for future EU lending. As anyone familiar with the EU’s financials knows, this is not good. (Article143)

The EU admits, in Art. 184, that it is in breach of Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty which oblige it to “conclude an agreement” of the terms of UK leaving the EU. We must now, it seems, “negotiate expeditiously the agreements governing their future relationship.” And if the EU does not? We settle down to this Agreement.

And, of course, the UK will agree to pay £40bn to receive all of these ‘privileges’. (Article 138)
 
Further move, and a deliberately late one from Spain. They are demanding that Gibraltar be excluded from any deal with Britain. Spain wants to be assured by the EU that they can ratify any deal before it is agreed on with this in mind.

Gibraltan PM states that this will lower confidence in Spain by the Gibraltans.

Naughty.

The fools do our job. Irish and Spanish ensuring no deal. Don't tell the deal enthusiasts though.

One of my bankers has always been Spain or RoI refusing to sign. Spain will have a fishing grudge too.

Treasury: UK worse off out of EU

The UK will be poorer economically under any form of Brexit, compared with staying in the EU, Treasury analysis suggests.

Official figures say the UK economy could be up to 3.9% smaller after 15 years under the PM's Brexit plan, compared with staying in the EU.

But a no-deal Brexit could deliver a 9.3% hit, the new estimates say.

The Treasury estimates do not put a cash figure on the potential impact on the economy, but independent experts have said that 3.9% of GDP would equate to around £100bn a year by the 2030s.

The 83-page document does not attempt precisely to forecast the impact of Mrs May's deal.

But it compares the likely impact of the proposals agreed by the Cabinet at Chequers in July and set out in the government's White Paper with the alternative scenarios of Norway-style membership of the European Economic Area, a Canada-style free trade agreement with the EU and a no-deal Brexit.

It finds that GDP will be lower in 15 years under all Brexit scenarios than it would be with EU membership. And in all cases, national income will be reduced if migration from Europe is reduced from its current levels.

it's just guess work.

It’s pure BS that assumes the U.K. doesn’t grow for 15 years, while EUtopia experiences 15 years of economic growth.
