Extreme Brexit could be worse than financial crisis for UK: BoE

You have a warped view of reality. Brexit is about escaping an organisation with a globalist ideology inimical to the 17.4 million Brits who  voted Leave.

 

They are fighting to stop their country turned into cheap labour pool stocked with a constant flow of poor, uneducated and unskilled immigrants from countries with cultures and values demonstrably incompatible with their own.

 

If that isn't a worthy cause, then I don't know what is.

 

 

 

 

 

 

"They are fighting to stop their country turned into cheap labour pool stocked with a constant flow of poor, uneducated and unskilled immigrants".

 

I agree.  Great for employers - far less 'great' for the poorest paid brits. who see their wages kept at the lowest possible level, as there are always eu immigrants from poor countries who are happy to take these jobs - as they pay far more than they could get in their home countries.

Jees there's a lot of David Icke spent too much time on the internet rather than cushioning their nests Rothschilds hating conspiracists venting their bloated impotency on the web rather than positioning themselves on the right side of the trade. Like myself I admire Jacob Rees-Mogg for shilling for his position - good luck to him he is wealthy and will remain wealthy. What I find disturbing is there are so many national-masochists who will suffer the most lauding his  championing of national sovereignty whilst moving his hedge funds to Ireland or like John  Redwood warning his investors that the UK faces a prolonged period of financial insecurity - these are the same noble folk who were slaughtered in the tens of thousands in the Somme and the like. Sadly for Thailand expats on a budget, the combo of Thai immigration rules and a falling pound is going to push you back to the UK.  You will find yourself, elderly, impoverished and with little rights to housing, healthcare, and pensions and yet you keep on cheering your own downfalls. Keep it up I am long on Baht and short on sterling. There is no fool like an old fool wrapped in the flag of the country they left behind. Good luck in your dotage with your 'stick it to the man revolution' where you are the one to suffer for your ignorance. You cared not one jot for the million UK expats who had retired to the EU and now find themselves stranded and scared as their retirement is in jeopardy from their pensions, property and healthcare.  Thai flag waving expats will find little sympathy back home when you return. But if Leave means Leave makes you happy in the meantime who am I to pee on your parade.

It is always good to weigh 2 alternatives. Everything about the EU is shitty. Although the UK actively participated and formed the EU over 40 years what is the EU today.

 

Analog, you buy a dog together. The dog poops into the room. Now suddenly it is no longer the common dog.

 

Given. The constant moaning and crying is destructive  So where is the most intelligent alternative in our globalized world, giving the inhabitants a better and meaningful life?

 

Brexit? Since over 2 years I have not heard / read a single, comprehensible concept / plan. So far, Brexit is a meatless idea without concrete content.

 

On the contrary. Many people are affected by the idiotic idea. Few, very few may be have an advantage, but the majority will have to deal with significant deterioration.

 

What advantage does every inhabitant of the UK have personally, quite specifically from Brexit?

 

And please no phrases like, we get back the control or our sovereignty.

 

 

 

 

 

The poorest paid MAY stand a chance of being paid a livable wage.

 

It's been obvious for more than a few years that this is no longer the case - since the govt. started 'topping' up those on a wage (for those with families) that was nowhere near enough to live on in the uk.

 

i.e. The govt. subsidising wealthy companies to pay as little as possible....

Of course they aren't...…..it's a question of religion.

The UK has a surplus and unemployment is it's lowest in 40 odd years. The Government has reduced the deficit considerably and our banks recently passed rigid stress testing.

Many countries in the EU are either in or moving toward recession.

The EU is collapsing under public debt.

The Euro has a serious survival problem.

Water levels in the Rhine are at an all time low.😁

Germany and France being run by the most over rated politician of recent times and a Pound Shop Napoleon

And Remainers want to stay in; it's a strange strategy. 

 

The biggest worry for the EU now is for the UK to stay in the Union and bring the Brexit fight to the May European elections.

UK has a surplus of what?  i really hope you dont mean money.  only italy is in recession and the eastern countries are going very well,i cannot see how the UK staying in is going worry the EU,its them who arent budging our PM is begging them to change,and who is the over rated leader of france and germany? a transsexual possibly,overrated politicians are the likes of bojo and corbyn,the euro is surviving very nicely unlike the collapsed quid

aright, your right.  The EU is an ideology, and as such will

not accept criticism or reason.  They have ignored the fact

that the unrest in Europe is a symptom of a collapsing empire.

A large enough rising of the people must take the opportunity

to seize the central banks for the people.

BoE must be the prime target here..

They are the main cause of all inequality.

have you been drinking? you want europeans to rise up and take over the BoE 😂🍷 I think they will be shocked when they find very little there,better of going elsewhere the UK is bankrupt try those rich german banks as thats where the UKs £39 billion is stored if you believe some on here.

Being 70, I am not really interested anymore.

 

Rather selfish, I hope, and sure many Europeans of my age and even younger hope as well, Brexit doesn't affect us personally.

 

Negative comments about the British or the Europeans will always appear on a forum.

 

The majority of the Europeans, idem the British, have no hard feeling against each other.

 

Each party know that the others are different in many aspects.

 

But if things may turn bad, it is a great possibility that the Europeans will blame all the British without distinction ( Leavers/Remainers) for it.

 

As there is the a great possibility that the U.K. blame the E.U. for everything.

 

 

being 50 iam not to interested either,the EU hasnt done me any harm and the EU sunshine and cheap food and drink await,good look to those who choose to remain in the UK as they are going to need it.

the minimum wage has rose well above inflation for many years now,this is what has been encouraging the immigrants to come here,anyway after brexit there wont be to0 many jobs around so many will return to the booming economies of eastern europe.

If you are going to work in Europe, cheap food and drink

is all you will afford..  if you actually find employment.

Good look to you.

UK net borrowing has fallen from £150 billion in 2010 to £40 billion in 2018. You can't reduce this level of borrowing without extra money...…..the so called surplus.

Last month the Treasury recorded the biggest January surplus since records began.....£14.9 billion

 

Germany is on the brink of recession after a shock plunge in Industrial output. Production in Europe's financial powerhouse dropped by 1.9% in November and by minus 4.6% year on year.....the biggest drop since the 2008 crisis. In November Germanys exports fell by minus 0.4%. 

 

The rest of Europe is begging them to change. Have you seen the latest election results. I assume you feel centrist parties are going to sweep the board in May.

 

Bojo and Corbyn aren't heads of state.

 

Ask the countries of the Southern med how good the Euro is ?

But, but I thought the UK was awash with money? Look at how the wasters and the feckless live like kings there...

 

You are completely correct. Any Briton now falling on hard Brexit times and deciding to return in order to take advantage of our ridiculously generous welfare state, may find themselves in for something of a shock...

begging them to change what? germanys huge exports will be hit with the trade war/china slowdown/VW scandal also the big exporters will always feel the slowdown first,ive asked my partner is the euro good or bad for portugal and she says its no different and changing wouldnt make any difference,i dont quite see why you brexiteers keep on going on about the euro when its quite strong and very stable or maybe you want it to collapse so inflation rises and makes life harder for europeans,as for borrowing the UKs is still worse than germanys and i would guess household debt a lot worse,again i say britons will never have a better lifestyle than the frech,germans.dutch.belgians etc even if if all your brexit dreams came true,which they wont
