Any bets on how many people will get that?


Only those who know who shot J.R.


I remember my parents listening to Scottish Comedian Hector Nicoll and he sang a little ditty "y'er a star, y'er a star when you know who shot J.R"

Looks like May is rolling out the big guns of Project Fear again , Carney is back spreading it large.

A no-deal Brexit could send the pound plunging and trigger a worse recession than the financial crisis, the Bank of England has warned.
It said the UK economy could shrink by 8% in the immediate aftermath if there was no transition period, while house prices could fall by almost a third
www.bbc.co.uk...


It's May's way or the highway .... to Hell !!!!!!!!
Bwahahaha !


Falling house prices may be bad for a lot of the UK but for some of us it might be a godsend, too many people have been priced out of the housing market. I know a price crash would have a negative effect on the economy but this price bubble needs to pop.

What the EU fail to understand (and many in the UK) is that the EU is nothing without the UK.

What you have is a group of essentially 3rd world countries, I have traveled France and Italy and outside of any major city is peasantville, slightly more than mud huts with dubious sanitation hosting old school peasants, people in the UK could buy a project house there for less than a months wages!

The Brexit deal doesnt matter, we will be out. Anyone who tries to take us back in will suffer political suicide.

After the UK leave and the rest of the EU see how the self appointed bureaucrats in Brussels, France, Germany and Spain tried to ruin someone whose people voted to leave there will be repercussions. If/when the boot is on the other foot I look forward to seeing those fuel riots in france extending to frexit riots.

So lone EU, we are out....



Did you travel via TARDIS? Because I've been through Europe multiple times and people do not live in 'slightly more than mud huts'. Don't be silly.

All of what follows is a diluted chat with co-workers this afternoon
we're all bonkers
....

Tardis time

Which-ever deal, be it a Non- or a Chequers one
The outcome will be thoughourly disastrous for the country
The "United Kingdom" will cease to be
(Scotland, finally, into Europe, Ireland just go "f!ck dat boss, we're off, eee-you's better fer us, loik")

Way before then
next Easter, as a gage of 'envisagable rapide decline'
we were wondering about how much a chocolate easter egg would cost !

Yup

The one filled with little chockies
that you might hide for later ...

That's imported stuff Duude!
Retailers rely on JIT deliveries from abroad
An' them tomatoes for the sarnies, from Sainsbury's Via Spain

The list went on

Aaand then things took a darker turn :
Given the 'populist' leaning nowadays
Would it be that unthinkable that in the next 5,10,15, yrs or so
British ex-pats are all ejected from their host countries

France, Germany, (Italy is already there)
because of newly elected leaders
Elected on the basis of



"You're not born here,
you're not welcome here
here's your ticket : go home"


Mass im-patriation from "abroad'
Brits being forced to go back to a country
that they no longer know or relate too


How many would that be, i dunno, 1 Million !?!
All tabulated up; they're from Spain, they're from Estonia,
them overthere's ... wait, what ? from Canada !?!

What's gonna happen then ?
Will there be *ahem* "Welcoming Camps"

And after ?
Reconversion, as we say in "the Business" ?

* I'll go an' be a spud farmer : given that the brits import their spuds..
* I'll take up small boat building : helping small fisheries
*i'll be an insurance claims investigator (WTF!?!) : Brext'll kep me going well into my retirement


Can i lay a claim to BrXit Doom Porn !?!

Naw, not that bad, but you have to wonder, in a nation of 66.02 million people, where 29% of the food consumed is imported from other EU nations, what will happen should Brexit turn out to be of the superhard variety?

I see certain medical supply shortages through on the horizon, at least in the short term after Brexit.

We are British, the majority of us will simply knuckle down and soldier on, find a way to make ends meet.

While we are doing that through for the next few decades the Tory scum responsible for this whole debacle will simply ride out the majority of the socioeconomic storm that will almost certainly ensure, protected and bolstered by there offshore bank accounts and other nefarious financial shenanigans.

Brexit will make the wrong sort of people a whole lot of monies, that's a given, or it simply would not be in the post.

You're probably right. Only a coalition would defeat the Tories as things stand. Labour isn't getting anywhere and I'm pretty sure they're still dead in Scotland anyway and it was their Scottish votes that propped them up, until 2016 that is.

Lib Dems have always been just on the fringes, apart from when they sold their souls to cosy up with the Tories.

Greens get my vote sometimes but they're never gonna have a PM.

SNP, being the 3rd biggest party doesn't mean much in the grand scheme because they can't have the British PM seat.

We're probably stuck with the Tories...

Are you seriously saying that those countries exporting to the UK are going to


behave like petulant children and stop their exports with immediate effect?

Those exports are money into their economy and their various business both large

and small.

We may get hungry ..... but they loose income and have piles of rotten food.


When it takes the EU seven to ten years to negotiate a deal, they are going to be

poor for a long time ....... the UK doesnt have to consult with any partners

(never mind twenty seven) so a turnaround for a deal should take no time at all

I have a lot to learn about this issue.

Can someone here give a good synopsis on why this deal is bad?

And if so, then what is the alternative to it?

Considering the vote was so close, is having another vote on it, so terrible

Could say the same about Brexit, but look how that turned out so far?

Im seriously suggesting 66.02 million people cannot feed nor support themselves should we lose or screw up 29% of the food products we import.

What about our medical supply needs and other requirements do you not see a few problems arising in that area after Brexit?

I'm seriously suggesting it's not going to be a bed of Roses.

Consider also that petulant children and politicians are rather synonymous in quite a few areas, especially so these days, or so it seems to me.

"I have a lot to learn about this issue."

You and 99.99999% of the rest of us.

"Can someone here give a good synopsis on why this deal is bad?"

Well, form my own point of view Brexit is a step in the wrong direction, but that's simply my own opinion.

"And if so, then what is the alternative to it?"

Not Brexiting, sticking with the union and making it work as best we can.

"Considering the vote was so close, is having another vote on it, so terrible"

They will hang you from the rafters for proposing such lunacy. LoL

Personally, i can't see how it could hurt if our departure from the EU is still the will of the people, aside from the cost and further delay.

Brexit is not quite FMCG. Can the exporters afford to loose money and food

rotting wherever?

The EU doesnt want us to leave it is not setting a good example to other EU nations

who are themselves chomping at the bit to leave. They are trying to make an

example of the UK.




Im seriously suggesting 66.02 million people cannot feed nor support themselves should we lose or screw up 29% of the food products we import.


You have tunnel vision the WORLD is bigger than the EU ..... Australia, America,

Canada, N.Zealand just to begin with.




What about our medical supply needs and other requirements do you not see a few problems arising in that area after Brexit?


All the large pharmecutial companies have plants in various countries, do you

really think they would want to loose the business? I myself have informed my

medical centre that I am more than prepared to take generic medication.




I'm seriously suggesting it's not going to be a bed of Roses.



I dont for one minute think it will be, but I'm an optimist and am prepared

to take a hit in the short term for a better future.

*Nothing ventured nothing gained*


I have a theory that the politicans of today have got appathetic as everything

being done in Brussels (it is costing the UK for two layers of politicans one in

Brussels and one at Westminster not forgetting the monthly trek to Strasbourg)

The ones in Westminster are quite happy sitting back faking their expenses and

taking orders from Brussels its time for them to start earning their money.

But if the Brexit plan is not working, or even devised in any sort of agreeable manner, what makes you imagine all the rest of there plans, contingency or otherwise, wont go breasts up soon or shortly after proposal never mind implementation?

Personally, i don't think they really know there arse from the elbow where departure from the union is concerned, which is most lightly by design.

Orders is orders eletheia, truth is they don't come from Brussels, they come from bankers and corporations, the same sort of people who will make a killing from the likes of Britain's departure from the union, quite frankly literally in some cases.
