brexiteers dont understand simple economics. So they label every negative report as project fear 

 

 

Indeed.....but they can work out that 92% of UK GDP DOESN’T rely on exports to the EU.

Another one willing to throw the lives of his compatriots under the bus for the "Holy Brexit Grail".  What about the people who do rely on them?  Do they not matter Jip?

Do you really think that there would not be ‘casualties’ with the UK leaving the EU..

 

 

Of course there will be. There will also be opportunities that arise and the populous in the UK and the EU has had over 3 years to adapt to that.

 

I have said before, a German selling to the UK and a Brit selling to Spain can still do after Brexit. How easy, or difficult, that will be will depend on the stance of Tusk/Barnier et al.

 

Direct your question to them.

I respect your communist stand-point, but I can't quite agree with it.

You have provided not one of these reports, or even a link. You just picked out a couple of one-off examples suitable for your own purposes. I'll be involved if I want, I am not a troll and I am not sorry.

By all means you can choose to become involved or not -that's up to you. But not by denouncing my statements as false - that's a step too far and, whether you like it or not, is a baiting/flaming attitude.

Try this link below for starters. The majority of leavers voted because they 'wanted their country back', which is nonsensical, IMO. The Uk has always been a sovereign state right up today, and is in control over all its borders, UK law, and 98% of its financial expenditures.

 

Causes of the vote in favour of Brexit - Wikipedia.

Really? Nice one.

 

At one swoop you have managed to insult 17.4 million people.

 

I am sure that there are many Brexiteers who know as much as, or more than you about economics, finance and international trading than you.

 

I can understand simple economics but if you wanted aircraft radios fixed, mobile cell phone sites built, installed, integrated into the network I'm your man. Each of us have our own skills but that doesn't mean that we are ignorant or stupid.

 

For example would you go to an accountant or a financial guru to get your car fixed?

 

Your problem like many Remainers is that you don't think through or research your subject before you post a reply.

While I agree with your point, Bill, the highlighted extract is exactly the same as managing to insult up to 16 million people.  Although neither a Remainer or Leaver (in principle) I'm one of those that finds it as insulting. No offence, mate, just pointing that more thought is needed before posting a reply.

AFAIR I haven't insulted any Remainers unless it was in a reply to their post.

 

I don't see any point in insulting anyone and I try to stay on topic unless it gets too boring when I slip a link to something or other to lighten it up.

yeah, I know what you mean. Just can't wait for the next brexit post where johnson manages to practically secure a deal, following a resolution - perhaps - of the Irish backstop. Media posts on here must run into hundreds now.

Then you suspect wrong.The Lib Dems will never go into a coalition with the Tories given the damage done to their party last time round.

Not disputing it's a valid point but if it was a choice of being in government or not, there is a good chance that memories would fade, and more so if they have a significant number of seats to barter.

At the end of the day it is all going to be about numbers and that is a bit up in the air.

I don't think so.I agree it's difficult predict without knowing the numbers after the (presumably) forthcoming election.But I can see no circumstances regardless of numbers in the H of C under which the Lib Dems would join with the Tories.Remember the Tories have now largely rooted out their One Nation Remainer numbers, so would be even more unacceptable to the Lib Dems.

 

In the likely event of another hung parliament I can certainly see the Lib Dems, the SNP and Labour (post Corbyn) working together and possibly forming a coalition government.

You haven’t mentioned the Brexit party.

 

 

Also consider the possibility of Boris getting a Brexit deal done before any election. What will the Liberals  campaign on then ?
