Here is the real laugh mate. In a survey last week 49% of Conservative voters said they think Engurland should be independent.

Ask them the same question about Scottish independence and virtually all of them say no.

How does that work?

Oh yeah. English exceptionalism.

And apparently they dont do irony either 😂.

 

 

 

Looks like (once again) I am in the 51%-ers.

The basic loss, economically, has turned out to be about half a trillion pounds plus a trade deficit with the EU of at least £70 billion per year.

We had a trade deficit before we joined the EU.

Whats your point caller? Were you even at the game?

Can you show evidence of when English were asked about Scottish independence and virtually all  of them voted no ? 

  When was this poll and what was the exact result ?

Twisting again. You wanted to talk oranges. I didn't.

It started about unnecessary protectionist EU tariffs and cheaper products available from around the world. Unfortunately some Remainers arguments spun off, out of control at a tangerine.

Here is one more.

Under Union law, consumers have significant rights that the member states through national legislation must guarantee. This includes, for example, the right to a power connection, but also the right to any To choose electricity provider that offers its services on site.

 

But what do those who do not do with their provider are satisfied? Under Union law, all consumers have Right to an easy, quick change of provider (usually within 3 weeks) without them additional fees will be charged. All electricity providers must have clear contract information deploy them before signing their customers prompt. They must also notify when the contract is changed (e.g. cost increase), and the possibility offer to terminate the contract (and a contract with one close new provider), if a customer is not with the satisfied with new conditions.

 

In addition, the Electricity providers provide accurate and up-to-date consumption information and ensure that the bills meet the correspond to actual consumption. By 2020, at least 80% of all electricity meters in the EU should be replaced by intelligent measuring devices without incurring additional costs for consumers. With intelligent measuring devices, power consumption can be significantly reduced - The electricity bill will be cheaper in the future.

 

Union law also provides for quick, easy resolution of complaints and disputes: you just have to lodge a complaint with your electricity provider. If this does not solve the problem, customers in all Member States have it Right to lodge a complaint with an independent national body. This must then be an inexpensive, prompt and enable fair out-of-court settlement.

What if a country, lets say Italy for example were hit by a terrible pandemic, lets call it covid-19, would the other 26 nations be obliged to help Italy immediately or would they let Italy go alone without any help, just curious.

So you think people in Engurland want Scottish independence or not?

Anyway here is a link to the poll which shows 49% of Conservative voters in Engurlund want Engurland independence.

More flashbacks on the way. Oooh nooo...

Here one more:

Unfortunately, Frost does not want to sign this, prefers to keep his copy rights open.

 

In 2017, over a million people were active in the production and sale of spirits in the EU and spirits worth € 11 billion were exported around the world. The spirits industry is therefore one of the most important areas of the European agricultural and food industry. In the EU, the high quality production of over 240 different spirits is ensured by geographical indications. These include a. "Calvados", "Irish Whiskey" and "Estonian vodka" as well as various types of liqueurs and fruit brandies. These high quality products are protected from counterfeiting by EU quality regulations. The EU always insists on protecting geographical indications in trade negotiations with third countries in order to promote the international sales of authentic European products. The updated EU legal act on spirits (Spirits Ordinance) clarifies the regulations on the production and labeling, defines categories of spirits (e.g. rum, pastis and gin), replaces existing procedures for protecting their geographical indications and a publicly accessible electronic Register of recognized geographical indications created. In addition, the European Parliament's proposal to set maximum sweetener levels across the Union for different categories of spirit was adopted and taken into account in the new regulation. The updated act will apply from spring 2021.

No I am right but no surprise there.

1975 27.7 29.4 -1.7 49.6%

 

Now it was a far smaller trade deficit than we have today but a deficit it was.

Then Thatcher took over and the whole thing went to hell in a handcart.

This is not that sweet.

Will the Brexit UK also participate for the benefit of its workers? I have my doubts.

 

Cancer is the leading cause of work-related death in the EU. Millions of workers are exposed to harmful chemical agents that can be carcinogenic (carcinogens) or trigger mutations (mutagens). Carcinogens and mutagens are found in many workplaces in almost all industries.

 

In order to improve the protection of workers, the EU has updated its regulations on exposure to carcinogens and mutagens at work (Directive 2004/37 / EC). The first update of the directive concerned 13 chemical agents. The second revision proposal was submitted in January 2017. It introduced limit values and other measures for eight other carcinogens and mutagens that workers are exposed to or could inhale. The working substances affected include, for example, motor oil and - due to the European Parliament's demands - diesel exhaust.

 

The new rules are estimated to protect more than 15 million potentially vulnerable workers. It also makes it easier for small businesses, especially micro-businesses, to comply with health and safety regulations.

 

The European Parliament and the Council reached agreement on the updated rules in December 2018. The final act came into force on February 20, 2019. All EU member states must implement the revised regulations into national law by February 20, 2021.
