  1. Whoop Whoop......fantastic news! So happy for the future right now, you see there are those who are fully invested in the status quo who would betray the will of the british people.
  2. +1 for pistonheads (they have a 74 page thread on events of this week)
  3. You would enjoy the PistonHeads site i think, it is a good website
  4. The car forum PistonHeads, the free discussion area is called "gassing station"
  5. That's cool Johnny i respect people that choose a side and make a stand, there is victory in defeat, "respect the vanquished enemy" etc What i can't stand is the two faced types that want to maintain the status quo out of either "fear of change" or some "putrid ideological beliefs"
  6. Can i just make it clear that i do not give one **** about people's economic prospects or future life chances, i want out of the EU in totality.
  7. I hope Nigel Farage & Arron Banks have spoken to Trump about this and Theresa May gets a very frosty reception on her visit next week. Any talk of a quick trade deal should be removed from the table until we can acertain whether the Government are going to allow ammendments to A50 negotiation plan from Labour / Lib dem / SNP and try and put the blame on them. C'mon Donny!
  8. Of course they will, they keep making soundbites about "the will of the people" but IMO it is all hollow hardtalk designed to placate.
  9. The PM delayed by 82 days to wait for this appeal that was throughly lost by 8-3 (they would have known the likely outcome) As i have said all along the Government are just stalling at every chance they get, now it will be blame the judicary, Corbyn, SNP etc etc
  10. Yes. yes at last the fact that A50 negotiations are only about LEAVING the EU is finally becoming public knowledge! Now in the days following the referendum many MP's appeared on the TV saying that A50 negotiations could be concluded very swiftly (within 5 months was quoted) because it is only about Leaving not about Trade at all. So this is why i know TM and the government are stalling, all this talk of transitional arrangements is bull A50 negotiations are only about the Divorce not the trade. I hope this becomes more mainstream public knowledge because then people can see the lie being peddled that they have to wait patiently for 2 yrs+ for the UK to get a good trade deal, this is not the case. And the 9 months of stalling? why? when the A50 negs are about LEAVING not Trade? but tell the public that they have to wait and be patient while a Trade negotiation team is readied? IMO all this is about putting as much distance as possible between the referendum and actually doing anything about leaving the EU. If they can eek it out until 2019 then have a vote in HOL or table a load of watering down ammendments or blame the judiciary or say A50 is now revocable then they will have suceeded in putting almost 3 yrs between the referendum and any real action.
  11. So basically they just bought themselves another 2 years of stalling then?
  12. UK will leave the EU regardless of whether Parliament backs the particular Brexit deal that Theresa May strikes with Brussels. Ms May managed to placate some critics in the Commons and Lords by promising Parliament a vote on the Brexit terms she agrees, but sources confirmed the country will leave the bloc even if her particular deal is rejected by MPs and Peers. Such a move would probably mean the hardest kind of Brexit, with the UK leaving the EU without any successor agreement and reverting to World Trade Organisation rules - meaning MPs could be more likely to back whatever terms Ms May manages to achieve. Hurrah! (i don't trust them not to put a s*** ammendment on it though)
  13. ^^^^ Alain Lamassoure, a French MEP from the centre right Les Republicans party, said Theresa May’s speech was “incomprehensible”. Speaking on FranceInfo radio, he said:
  14. Been out and missed the speech, is it a crock 'o sh*te like i expected?
  15. Just seen IDS on the telly, he's saying staying in the single market in not the goal when we go into negotiations because getting all 27 countries to agree to it would be impossible, so lets go in saying "look lets get the best deal that benefits both Britain & the EU" What a crock. Not really saying anything, more smoke & mirrors. The usual trick of leaking it over the weekend and gauge reaction then backtrack on the day for fear of upsetting some people and the smoothing the markets / sterling reaction?
  16. So the only thing that remains to be seen now, is if they try and get an upfront extension to the 2 yr A50 negotiating period (this can be requested at outset) To allow for the French German & Dutch elections coming up this year. I also note EU funded grants like the CAP and other commitments are being honoured until 2020 not 2019 so that could be an indicator. And then they try to tag on a transition period too After managing to wait 9 months since the referendum already.
  17. The Guardian are running tomorrow's Theresa May speech word for word. Britain is leaving the single market and customs union, the 172 pages of comments are off the scale very bitter
  18. Good post, taking on those Uni loans was always a bad bet, but it will likely be an even worse gamble in the coming years.
  19. Britain is LEAVING THE SINGLE MARKET Confirmed (by the Guardian) Theresa May will confirm tomorrow that Britain is leaving the single market & customs union. "The people voted for Brexit with their eyes open" she will say (according to the Guardian)
  20. IMO All they had to do was change our uk benefit system and the instant drop in migration would have probably satisfied alot of the voters, they didnt want to give up the tax credit subsidised workers for busineses etc, so they rolled the dice on the referendum. We are where we are now. I'm a staunch leaver (blue collar worker) but i have heard others say "all they had to do was change the benefit system" Even after Brexit i doubt they will alter the benefit system, it just seems to be linked into everything and a politcal hot potato.
  21. Ok well it is one idea, i expect it has already been considered. What goods exactly are the UK exporting of it's own? The following export product groups represent the highest dollar value in UK global shipments during 2015. Also shown is the percentage share each export category represents in terms of overall exports from United Kingdom. Machines, engines, pumps: US$63.9 billion (13.9% of total exports)Gems, precious metals: $53 billion (11.5%)Vehicles: $50.7 billion (11%)Pharmaceuticals: $36 billion (7.8%)Oil: $33.2 billion (7.2%)Electronic equipment: $29 billion (6.3%)Aircraft, spacecraft: $18.9 billion (4.1%)Medical, technical equipment: $18.4 billion (4%)Organic chemicals: $14 billion (3%)Plastics: $11.8 billion (2.6%)
  22. That is an informative article but it neglects to mention the potential for the UK to become a staging post for worldwide goods exports going into the EU (circumventing the Blocks tarrifs and paying the UK negotiated lower one?) Ah but the EU will just increase the tarrifs they apply to the UK? No they won't because they need to sell their goods to us?
  23. So one scenario could be the UK becomes some sort of import / export clearing house for goods going into the EU and an offshore Tax haven?
  24. ^^^ so Britain could become the entry point for goods going to the EU bypassing the EU blocks tarrifs? I can see why "transitional controls" are being hotly talked about, the EU won't like that one bit. I guess being the first to leave the block has a massive advantage? Strike trade deals all around the world and then punt their exports into the EU for them. A "Middle Man"? better get building some bigger port facilities.
