  1. Don't remember 'no deal' Brexit being on any ballot. You and your kamikaze pals can go pick fruit when your Hard Brexit materialises, right?
  2. But you won't get a 'no deal' and it was never the default. The deal on the table is a result of 2+ years of negotiation.... and it's absolutely terrible. There is no other 'deal' coming. It's hard Brexit or no Brexit. Hard brexit crashes the UK economy. You kamikaze Brexit nutters are always a joy.
  3. I think you guys forget... Scotland already went through all this h0rsesh1t. Nothing will further Scottish independence more than having the union disintegrate because of Brexit. So don't think you can understand the mindset of the true northerners. Queue all the nasty comment, especially by the resident self hating Scots on this forum.
  4. So is jumping off the Cliffs of Dover holding a cannon ball. Can't see this happening despite all the rhetoric from you kamikaze Brexit freaks. It would be the most damaging and embarrassing action of a democratic country in the modern age.
  5. Use some of that almighty intellect of yours and look up: opt outs, derogations to eu freedom of movement, habitual residency amongst others. Google it yourself you lazy git. Go learn something new.
  6. Right. Show me where the UK is hiring 1000's of immigration officers and setting up detention centres to process the deportations. Certainly if you believe so then this should be the case from March next year.
  7. WTO option crashes the UK economy, puts the country to a standstill, rations it and puts the army on the streets. People will die because of it. It is not an option.
  8. Patently wrong. Successive UK governments decided not to follow up on any of their EU rights, and the UK's unique exceptions to the EU rules, for deportation of EU migrants. Do you honestly believe that Brexit will do anything to change this?
  9. I'm not a "remainer you" muppet. Nor am I a leaver. I've travelled much of the world with work, military and in education. Every single time I enter or leave the UK my passport is scanned. Every. Single. Time. We are certainly the one of the, if not the most, technologically adept nations in terms of domestic and foreign surveillance, intelligence gathering and data analytics. Why is it that the UK government hasn't been enforcing it's own immigration policies? Brexit won't change any of that. The EU with the UK as a member is in decline... if that's the case.
  10. Our domestic STEM graduates are on the wain grizz, have been for ages. Our kids are way down the league tables on the core fundamentals of mathematics & physics (for engineers). Can't speak for those in medical, but the media doesn't paint a good picture for the UK in that respect. This is a problem that may take a generation or two to fix... with successive governments who is willing to sacrifice soft skills for STEM core fundamentals. Further, putting up barriers and making for a hostile environment will not attract skilled workers, lecturers, researchers and outside investment to the same degree. Surely you can agree wit that.
  11. Perhaps, and we can already see EU & other foreign owned businesses taking steps to avoid them. We don't have that luxury.
  12. That's never going to happen. Immigration isn't going to wain because of Brexit. Just swap one flavour of immigrant for the other. The EU is a protectionist bloc that the UK is currently a member of, and nobody has put forward a sound argument as to how being outside of this block is a net benefit to the UK. You like most Brexiteers fail to realise how much of this ROW trade depends on free flow of goods and services with the 'bloc'.
  13. Yet you refer to a Swedish innovation.... And yes... we're good at some things but do not operate in a vacuum. As far as innovation goes for technology... can you identify from your own text what makes the UK an innovative country? Further, when you can make cars anywhere but the UK because we are economically hindered by an unstable political environment... is this a positive outcome? We're drifting further and further away from being able to be domestically innovative and competitive grizz... This Brexit is going to drive people to be innovative in self preservation as the state's focus will be elsewhere.
  14. Huh? Grizz... we've already got heaps of privately owned centres for excellence for the automotive industry in the UK. What point are you trying to make here?
  15. And more like stroke of a pen. Hiccups in a supply chain will shut down production. Brexit is going to introduce a lot of hiccups. What's your take it then? How do we keep the status quo for manufacturing? We can certainly push the defence manufacturing industry, a likely benefactor of all this crap. Is this the road the UK wants to go down? Soft on environment? Soft on corporate corruption? Morals out the window? More immigration from non EU nations? More dodgy trade with despots? The EU27 aren't going to concede anything and now have their fingers on the nuclear option. All it takes is a delay attributed with just one party and we're in a Hard Brexit situation, utterly up sh1t creek. Brexit is not unilateral.
  16. Many industries in the categories you suggest run on thin to razor thin margins. Some even negative with respect to their manufacturing base, which has an uplift in the finance side of things. There is absolutely zero chance that the EU27 will give allow proviso for Britain to get an economic advantage as part of this deal or any deal, or any exit scenario.
  17. Let's get some clarity here. Britain's nationalised industries generally never had the constraints of being motivated by profit. Good old Labour governments. Coal ended because of the legacy costs from nationalisation, reduced availability of domestic higher calorific value stock, the UK's electrical policy and more importantly due to global market forces. Steel pretty much the same. Big fat former state owned behemoths who were noncompetitive. Perhaps good quality, but not cost efficient. The car industry runs as lean as any, is highly efficiency and is being threatened by imposing on it undo politically motivated constraints. Simple numbers. If you run an noncompetitive business model you are doomed. Brexit in all senses is going to turn a lot of the UK into an noncompetitive environment. What is the professor man talking about exactly in a 30 second clip? Where's the rest.
  18. Perhaps it's higher than 70%. We consume so many things that simply should never be in our diets. Artificial life extension is not advancing humanity or it's genome.
  19. Traitor? Haha. Those that have historically railed against fascism were labelled that too before summarily executed. Will of the Scottish people too? Brexit hasn't happened yet. If TM does the unspeakable are you going to pry yourself away from your computer and go fight the establishment? You extreme Brexit nutters are amusing. Constant source comedy gold.
  20. Its actually rather irrelevant. Brexit is not a unilateral action. Any sweeteners will draw the ire of EU27. Good luck to any who believes otherwise.
  21. So apparently.... Looks like there will be some feathers flying in Westminster. Gee whiz. Perhaps we could have seen these prior to June 23, 2016. Queue all the Brexit supporters stating how they know the square root of a pickle jar...and has the prescience to vote based on future impact assessments...
