How would tariffs imposed on UK exports by the EU reduce imports of these products by the UK?

Yes, I rather though it was not going to be beneficial for the UK to leave, after all. Clearly, the EU considers health matters to be important. 

 

Bottom line for the UK, though. Avoid these products for a more healthy regime.

I lived half my life before the EU. The benefits outweigh any regulations brought in by do gooders. They will still exist to annoy you and the government will still bring in goat shaggers and canibals.

At last someone who can enlighten me on exactly what benefits will ensue and how they would affect the 'man on the street'?

Yes really - I think the pressure is getting to you. I understand now there was/is a poster called 'Grouse' ? That's not me, I am a Handsome Gardner who considers life too short to <deleted> about with more than one id - your detective skills seem to be on a par with your economical ones - however if you're certain I'll donate 100,000 baht to a charity of your choice upon proof, maybe the mods can help you out in your quest ? In the meantime feel free to keep making a fool of yourself.

 

Does the US count in your top 3 after they've made it quite plain if anyone so much breathes on the Good Friday agreement there will be no deal - oh whilt here what is the brexiteer timescale for the deals please ? give us an outline of what you have in the pipeline that replaces what we HAVE got now ….

 

Why isn't the pound rising ? (17th request)

No. Not Grouse. Rather concerned there.

Not at all. No pressure at all. We are leaving the EU on 31st October 2019.

Wrong again. A speaker in the house is not the US. The president says differently. I know you want the UK to be unsuccessful after Brexit as your posts indicate this.

 

The rest isn't worth responding too.

"A speaker in the house is not the US. The president says differently."

You really should refrain from commenting on US politics. Not because of your nationality, which is irrelevant, but because of your lack of knowledge. It isn't "A speaker in the house". It's "The Speaker of the House." There's only one.  She is voted on by the members of the House of Representatives. Virtually always, the votes break down on party lines. Democrats have a big majority now in the House. Nancy Pelosi is their leader. Trump hasn't had much luck in trying to push them around. As anyone who has a clue about the present situation could tell you. So what makes you think that the Democrats are going to give way to Trump on this one?

So again what one speaker says, regardless of the speaker of the house, does not define what will happen. Same as John Bercow although many like you may believe he can do what he wants, he can't just like Pelosi.

 

So again who cares what one person says. It wasn't long ago a so called president said we would be at the back of the queue. Now we are at the front.

 

Obviously from your posts you want the UK to have a poor economy and stay within the EU. Sadly for you both won't happen.

Are you trying to prove how little you understand the American legislative system. Just because John Bercow and Nancy Pelosi are both called Speaker of the House, you think that their positions are similar? In fact, they have virtually nothing significant in common.  Laughable.

And if Trump doesn't get reelected who knows where the UK will be in that line? And just because you're in the line, doesn't mean you get to pass GO.

And imputing motives to someone you disagree with is the mark of a person who has no solid argument to make.

Well I believe he will get reelected not that it bothers me or i am a fan. He is still the president now, so your anti British rhetoric, wanting the UK to suffer, is tiresome. Anything positive the UK can do you jump on it.  So enlighten us where are you really from.

 

You are saying that the speaker of the house rules and makes decisions, like preventing trade deals with the UK. Ridiculous. if you have proof, show us the evidence.

I'm referring to political reality, not to rules and procedures which is the province of the Speaker of the House... of Commons.

Nancy Pelosi is the leader of her party in the House.  It is unlikely that many Democrats would oppose her for that reason alone. Especially given the unpopularity of Trump..

Also, the Russians supported Brexit. Russians aren't real popular with the Democrats. You can argue that it's fake news all you like, but that's not going to sway Democrats

In addition, the Democrats take great pride in the GFA since it was agreed to with the assistance of Bill Clinton and George Mitchell. They consider it an historic achievement. And no amount of persiflage from Brexit supporters is going to convince the that the GFA and a hard Brexit can coexist.

And there are a fair number of Irish Americans to whom that agreement is very important..

Also, Democrats overwhelmingly approve of the EU and don't like the idea of a weakened Europe. Especially given the aggressiveness of the Russians. (see Reason 1)

 

I just want to make sure that you understand that the Congress of the United States is a genuinely bicameral legislature. And that unless a bill is passed by both the House and the Senate, it cannot be signed into law.

Is that the deals question you're finding difficult ?

 

OK lets move onto the pound one - why isn't it rising (18th request)

 

Why did Bojo vote FOR the deal the brexiteers hate but then suddenly diverted course when he realised there was a shot at power ?

 

This is basic stuff - if you've got no answers for those what are you going to do when life gets difficult ? or are you still basing your strategy on hope ?

 

So lets get the easy ones out the way first - when you're ready …….
