Rest in Peace RR...

but.... RR is foreign owned! whether by the Germans or the Chinese these days... whatever!

 

 

RR, it is as British as an MG ZS

 

 

so what is a foreign company's place? to be criticising the UK in how they operate with/out Brexit?

A Rolls will be cheaper than a 3 Series in Germany soon enough!

 

I foresee a big rise in moped sales in the U.K.!

 

Brmm, brmm. Toot toot!

Stop the madness! There must be another referendum.

Which referendum?

 

- Out of the EU without any agreement, whatever the circumstances, consequences, costs etc, as.. was in June 2016, and won in an overwhelming landslide mayority of 51,88 %

- Stay in the EU, forget the Brexit, and accept any British comment inside any EU meeting will be answered with "are you threatening to LEAVE again ? Swollow ! "

- Any in-between, to start with: "where the border with the EU will be ?" Irish Republic inside the U.K., or.. between Irish rep end Northern Ireland .. or.. between Northern Ireland and the U.K., or.. entire UK inside the EU...  2 1/2 years of talking and.. even on THIS point the U.K. cannot make up its mind. 

- One limiting factor: the other side = 27 remaining EU members, also have to agree. This is till now forgotten in any argumentation inside the U.K.

 

And.. who are going to defend one of the 2 possibilities ? The same liars, swindlers, traitors and high-treasoners of last time ?

Are the British THIS TIME going to inform themselves, or again.. follow the idiots ?

the people have decided. they need to get a leader to sort out a decent deal. there may be some short term pain but England can take back control from the failing EU. it is hard to decide which leader is worse, May or Merkel. Trudeau would beat them both if he was in the running.

For a decent deal you need one: the other side to agree. That's forgotten in the U.K. 

But.. where is the problem ?  350 MILLION POUNDS A WEEK to the NHS instead of "wasting" it into the EU. Mr Boris Johnson guaranteed that in his campain. So.. keep him to that, even when he has to auction his internal organs.

Dream on. The Tories have continuously cut NHS budgets since they were elected. No chance of that money going to the NHS.

A company's place is in its interest. And if they think that this will hamper exports or import of raw materials they can and should voice their opinion.

i agree, but let them explain, Exactly how this will hamper their exports or imports

i don't know like many others, but i hear crap coming from many people all the time who speak crap, without facts

have they stock piled materials, instead of relying on Just in time, have they organised how exports and imports can be simplified  like the existing, or do we have foreign owned companies talking bullshit again

facts, not fiction would be very nice

if i say that if we remain, it will cost every working man more than 3,00 pounds a year extra, will you remainers believe me and why not

Because you have given zero evidence for your figure. Most economists say the opposite.

 

I await @evadgib's Twitter feed to kick in.

Fair point. The U.K. Has a very high GDP (5th) and a reasonable if not huge GDP per capita (39th [Ireland is 10th BTW]). Why is the NHS broke? Schools broke? Infrastructure broke, crap pensions? Crap benefits? Tiny army? No aircraft for our carriers?

 

In short, where is our money going? The head of Motability? Charities? Quangos? Sports morons? Celebrities? 

 

In short, the U.K. Is badly damaged both mentally and physically. Embarrassing

Quangos suck up large amounts. Foreign aid to countries that don't need it e.g. India. 5 nuclear submarines. And many more.
