The Brexit Consequences Thread

The problem isn’t necessarily the ECHR; it is how it is interpreted and implemented by the courts.

This isn’t a case of parliament not being sovereign, it’s more a reflection of how it is impossible for Parliament to define every possible variation or outcome.

It’s similar to the current problem of defining a “substantial meal” - is it a scotch egg, 2 scotch eggs or 2 scotch eggs and a bowl of chips? Ah, but what about falafel and salad? Or how about a ploughman’s plus soup-in-a-basket?

A pub serving a pizza and 12 pints doesn’t represent a challenge to Parliament‘s sovereignty even if it’s against the spirit of what Parliament intended.

the EU would issue an EU directive, specifying 2 Scotch Eggs, where they must be made, the weight in Grammes, the thickness and shade of brown for the crumb Coating.

All at a timely pace (one mustn't rush these things) of about 3 years.

And the oil temperature for frying.
But that would only be after they had set up technical committees for each element. These committees would sit for about two years, then come up with recommendations to be argued over ... Rinse and repeat.
I speak as someone who was co-opted to an EU Technical Committee which got absolutely nowhere.

I really am not trying to be trite, or cod philosophical at others' expense, but it is a bit like a forest burn. The dead wood burns fastest and the new growth comes healthier and stronger. I do believe that belts will have to tighten a little for a short while, but the re-growth will come quicker than many fear.

One other good thing that generally comes out of tough times is good strong leadership.

Indeed.
Some seeds won't germinate until they have been scorched. Because then the old wood is gone and the new seeds get atn uniterrupted shot at sunshine.
 
John Bercow.....remember him, the drug addled, popper whiffing, dwarven cuckold.

Ah yes. A grammar right slap bang in his constituency that he never once lobbied against when MP (mainly because it has the unwavering support of about 99.9% of parents in the constituency and the main campaigner against them is a loony-left town councillor with no kids and who looks like Box Car Willie's tramp half brother).

There's just no limit to the depths of cynicism this man won't plumb. The only good thing is he has no role in public life anymore, and won't have unless or until Labour get back into power.

Which everyone would give a stiff ignoring.

Except the UK, who would follow it to the letter, and severely punish any transgression.

that will take a smug look of a lot of Dordogneshire pretend residents.
As a fair number are scum, sorry, lawyers, they will find a way round it. How about doing the deal, money wise, in the UK then actually selling the house for a nominal €100 ;)
 
Interesting posts. Saw this on another forum which relates to the discussion here.


Were the locals subject to this tax?
If so, expats are being treated no differently from them.
I do note that the tax is on profits, not overall.

Yeah but BREXIT!
 
Bentley have just blown the JIT logistics argument right out the window ( Auto industry )

Bentley, the luxury carmaker owned by Volkswagen has booked five Antonov cargo jets to help overcome potential supply bottlenecks in the event of a disorderly exit of Britain from the European Union, the carmaker said on Wednesday.

We used to run just-in-time with two days stock. Now we have 14 days stock. That’s 14 working days, so that’s three weeks of stock,” he said.

The company has booked additional warehouses and planned new logistics routes in case traditional supply methods are hampered by bottlenecks.


Hmmmmm, will the EU let Bentley fly car parts into Manchester after the 31 Dec :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Not really. Bentley made 11,000 cars last year. Toyota made 150,000 at Burnaston. They'd need a lot of storage to keep two weeks worth of parts for that number of cars.

As long as it is Manchester, New Hampshire they will be fine. :)

My argument was always that JIT was only a necessity for perishable goods.

Not a bludgeon for all and sundry to get upset over because of Brexit.

Toyota do not need a lot of storage for 2 weeks worth, they need to find a solution that works for Toyota.
