  1. The Dutch Rabo-bank did with me about the same. I had a temporary extra credit line, but.. a very awake employee withdraw that. So, when I wanted to pay my hotel in Guangdong - China... pity, nothing. Happily a Thai lady behind me in the line offered to pay my hotel invoice, as we both would go with the same plane to Bangkok back, as my hotel was close to her office. It's 20 years ago, we are still friends...
  2. Exactly where the British have chosen for: all foreigners out. inclusive docters, nurses, technicians, dirty job workers etc... very welcome in NL, B and several other EU member states.
  3. Not so many politicians want to take that gamble; no EU, as.. just before the EU elections, Merkel has to explain, why the German car export to the UK collapsed, and the Dutch why their fresh fruits + grocery export went down so much. The same for the UK politicians: they are very well aware now, what a no-deal will mean for the British. No one wants to take that blame after years lying to their voters. Therefore: a hard brexit ultimatum OVER the summer holidays. Can you imagine… the British in line for a Schengen visa... and not spending their holiday money in continental Europe ….
  4. That option was already open at the day of the referendum. So.. LEAVE and accept all consequences. NO country nor a supra-national organisation will accept a 500km wide open border. So, where you want that border ? Good Fryday agreement,... in the waste box after 20 years. The value of a contract/treaty with the U.K.
  5. The combined EU fishing fleets land about 6 million tonnes of fish per year,[5] of which about 700,000 tonnes are from UK waters.[6] The UK's share of the overall EU fishing catch in 2014 was 752,000 tonnes, the second largest catch of any country in the EU.[7] This proportion is determined by the London Fisheries Convention of 1964 and by the EU's Common Fisheries Policy. see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Fisheries_Policy
  6. EU nationals of working age are more likely to be in work than UK nationals and non-EU citizens. About 83% of working age EU citizens in the UK are in work, compared to around 76% of UK nationals and 66% of people from outside the EU. see https://fullfact.org/immigration/eu-migration-and-uk/
  7. Which innovations ? the steam engine of James Watt ? And: BMW acquired the marque Mini in 1994 when it bought Rover Group (formerly British Leyland), which owned Mini, among other brands. For already 25 years, the British have nothing to say about Mini...nor the rest. https://www.acea.be/statistics/article/motor-vehicle-trade-between-the-uk-and-main-eu-partners I never forget my visit to Rowntree Mackintosh in York, in 1980. The entire factory was still working on leather driven belts… as in D, B, NL finished 30 years before. So, I thanked my British hosts for keeping a museum running to show how all was done in the past. "Sorry, it's all we have" was the answer...
  8. Can you already imagine any next vote in the EU after a withdrawal of art 50 = end of Brexit ? With any the British will have any opposition, for sure one of the others will say: "you want to Brexit again ? ?" The British will have to face that for decades. So, follow the advise of Charles de Gaulle, and ask the Americans or Canadians to be an overseas part of that country. With some luck the Scotish will be an independant member of the EU, and northern Ireland for a bigger part ( = the green part, so much less border problems) unified with the Irish Republic, so you can have the magnitude of Californa ( 2017: US$ 2,746 trillion; Texas: US$ 1,696 tr, New York: $ 1,547 tr.) Total UK for 2017: US$ 2,85 trillion.

  10. A TNS/MRBI Irish Times opinion poll on 14 June 2005 showed that while 45% of voters wished to see a referendum, only 30% would vote yes in the constitutional referendum, with 35% voting no and 35% unsure.[1] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015_Danish_European_Union_opt-out_referendum
  11. I am NOT convincing the British to stay. Even the opposite: happy we finally get rid of you. We should have done that with Thatcher already. Stocking up... that's what the British are doing now seen the fear for Brexit. And.. to rely also on fish for having enough to eat.. sorry, that finished already during our king, Louis Napoleon, who strengthened the unity of the 7 Provinces.
  12. I do not see any graph of me, mentioning any chance of getting Ergodanistan into the EU. Maybe Ukraine in some decades ? Even Russia ? Yes, some eastern EU member states lack some democratic way of government as we see/ believe in the Western EU member states. But.. we finally are going to get rid of one, always obstructing EU unionship, as Charles de Gaulle already predicted.
  13. So, how is the border between N and S Ireland ? This is an outer EU border or.. open border or... Swiss cheese border with many holes in it or ? ? British fish is processed for a big part in Netherlands, to be sold in the EU. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/apr/24/hard-brexit-would-mean-more-and-cheaper-british-fish-but-theres-a-catch Two-thirds of the fish UK consumers eat are imported from overseas, and the costs of those would rise, due to the trade barriers resulting from a hard Brexit. Moreover, the fall in the price of UK fish would lead to a drop in earnings for UK fishermen. Overall, the analysis shows closing the UK’s sea borders would be a “lose-lose situation” for both UK and EU consumers and fishing industries. Just weeks, and .. you are stuck with it. Together with all chicken, beef, pork, sheep, mouton, see http://www.uecbv.eu/UECBV/documents/BrexitMeatreport12373.pdf + https://www.farminguk.com/News/British-meat-exports-to-EU-set-to-fall-by-90-in-hard-Brexit-scenario-report-warns_48014.html and foods, see https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2018/dec/30/food-prices-to-finance-what-a-no-deal-brexit-could-mean-for-britain , https://www.theflindersnews.com.au/story/5879428/hard-brexit-could-be-hard-on-aussie-farm-export-plans/?cs=9397 and nearly all industrial output, to start with cars. https://www2.deloitte.com/content/dam/Deloitte/uk/Documents/manufacturing/deloitte-uk-brexit-impact-manufacturing.pdf + https://www.acea.be/news/article/fact-sheet-brexit-and-the-auto-industry . In Borne - NL, they are already organising how to fit in the now British Mini in their production. Thanks, many, many thanks.
  14. I do not believe Erdoganistan will have even a beginning of a chance to enter the EU.
  15. Go... today, of better one dat=y after the referendum. Tell us also, where you want the border betweeen the UK and EU. Till now, nothing….
