No Deal Brexit would be a disaster for the Eurozone, Dutch MPs warn on a visit to Westminster
**The Dutch delegation visited Westminster last week on a fact-finding mission
**They said No Deal would worsen already weak growth across the eurozone
**Said worst-hit nations would be Italy, Ireland, Denmark, Belgium and France
A No Deal Brexit would cause ‘considerable’ economic harm to the rest of Europe, Dutch MPs warned yesterday.
The delegation, which visited Westminster last week on a fact-finding mission, said No Deal would worsen already weak growth across the eurozone.
It could even trigger a banking crisis in Italy, they suggested, given the country’s vulnerability to economic shocks due to high public debt. ‘This could rebound on the eurozone,’ the Dutch said.
They predicted the worst-hit nations would be Italy, Ireland, Denmark, Belgium and France, as well as the Netherlands.

I'll be at a couple of these later this month and I'm just making final arrangements to be in Parliament Square 29th March.

It should not have gone 5 minutes, never mind go to the eleventh hour.
'too late now andy'
There are people lives and existence at stake, not just some paltry business dealings.
'the same shyte as before the referendum'
They are playing with our future and gambling away our hopes and dreams on a pipe dream that is as untenable now as it was the moment it was proposed.
'the selling of the nations jewels by a contiguous process has pained my mind as well as my heart on occasions.
the deplatforming of vulnerable people from welfare assistance. the underhand manner in which they
created distance through third-party private for-profit businesses running the assessment circus on their behalf.
they must be aware by now that this parliamentary system must either evolve to a higher standard or else go the way of the dinosaurs. the blueprints to an enhanced system of government where the corporate cannot tip the balance against us lowly piss ants (no offence to piss ants btw!) could very well be envisioned by how social media platforms evolved.
sadly I feel we all are constantly being targeted more so now with the censoring of content that was at one time legitimate information or for the user to determine what they chose to scope out and input.'
"They" don't give a ratsarse as to our best wishes, that's a given.
'lol, tell me something new andy. i have a mutual feeling for them also.'
They don't want Brexit for the sake or will of the people, they want Brexit for control over the masses and a free reign to do as they wish.
'that i salute you. we may be on opposite sides of an overgrown garden lol but I know your heart is in the right place.'

So if we did have another referendum and the answers where to either Remain in the EU or Leave with Theresa's deal, which would you vote for?

Perversely, in the last few months we have seen politicians doing what they are paid to do - debate and discuss, which is good. They never debate when a new directive or EU requirement is pushed into UK law without a word - even the ones that are detrimental to our jobs, society and (yes) democracy. They just accept it all like the lackey's they have become.

They dont 'work' on behalf of the electorate, they are more than happy to take orders and actually do little for a large salary .
Have you thought about being a politician?
