Brexit

The UK could have protected it's utilities by declaring them of national importance when joining the EU as France and Germany did. The UK CHOSE not to hence they were fair game. There was not rule change and no gaming of the system. Just a choice by our ruling elite to want to sell them off to make profit or themselves and their friends. 

And once more the ECHR is not and EU institution. It pre-dates the EU by some time and the UK was very instrumental in setting it up.

As well as declaring them companies of national importance to STOP anyone from buying them they also broke the state aid rules. But hey, we can go to and forth on this all day. The point is, the UK stuck to the rules as written, the French, and others, as usual, either ignored them or twisted their interpretation to suit themselves. We won't talk about how our biggest utility British Gas / Centrica was blocked from making similar acquisitions in France etc shall we. So much for the common good and freedom and liberty to all within the EU - only if and when it suits it seems. A for actual facts, meh, who needs them.... Wouldn't be a good rant if it was all fact based...

I do love a good rant as you know, and I can't wait till we leave and have a street party. That way the rest of Europe can play their games to their hearts content but not at our cost. And they can bloody well take Scotland with them for all that I care!  Watching the rugby on Sunday in Goa and a Scot who lives in England and has done for 20 years was pissed off becuase they knew I lived in Scotland but was cheering for England. FFS, caused a right rumpus when I pointed out that by their own logic they should be cheering for England - the poor useless fecker nearly choked to death on their beer whilst I just watched on....  the rugby and them choking of course....  hahaha....

Right, back to the beach, it's mojito time already....

I would not worry about energy companies in France anyway,  France will be back to the dark ages in a few years using candles in th elight posts, From what i have seen on the news recently and hearing reports of no go areas thanks to our middle eastern friends,  It will soon be back in the dark ages if they have their way :(

I know this might sound bizarre coming from me but I actually really like France and the French. The whole country is spoilt though by the politico elite in Paris who all seemed to be inter married, inter related and all alumni of the same schools and universities.  It really is about time the French got rid of these people - I kind of think of it like having 5000 Tony and Cherie Blairs, or Millibands, in London, controlling everything...!  :no

The French listed all their large food companies such as Danone on the list of companies which can be protected against takeover owing to grounds of national security. So all food, defence, power, transport, utilities, airports and cars are listed. 

I dont criticise them one bit. Anyone who runs a successful business knows its only a matter of how far you can bend the rules.

Fixed that for you.

The sheer hypocrisy in the EU's response to Brexit is astounding in my view.

As for Indyref2, currently sat on the beach with the missus looking for property options around Norfolk, Suffolk and North/East Cambridgeshire. Seriously thinkibg of selling up and just leavibg whilst I still might be able to sell.

No rant or explosion. Just sadness and a mind numbing thought that a party who could not even get a majority of seats thinks it is speaking for all of Scotland. Beggers belief.

Indyref2: We might not let you move back into England without a visa.

I'll be back before the Indyref2 so no Visa needed. My house will be unsellable for a few years if the vote is Yes and I hate to think what the value will fall to.

I think quite a view will maybe make the move like me so less No voters to head off the nonsense. I really do not want to go through this again. It is going to get very very nasty as the SNP HAVE to win or Independence really is dead for a generation.

You Joke but i want a wall building even more so if the Scots some how manage to scrape a deal with the EU  to stay in.    

The only way that is going to happen is if the EU let them in just to spite the rest of the U.K.

With Brexit the EU is losing a big net contributor which they will have to find a way of funding. To allow another "nation" at that stage who will be a further big draw on EU funds to join would not make any financial sense whatsoever. 

But, then again, who knows what the EU bureaucrats will do to protect their self-perpetuation.

I have a cunning plan - We let Scotland leave but we delay leaving the EU long enough to veto them joining the EU as a new country and then sit back and watch SNP turn Scotland into a 3rd World nation state. As you can see I getting really bored of all these people trying to scupper DEMOCRATIC votes in favour of personal agendas.

Nicola's cunning plan will be for Scotland to follow the Norway / Sweden model with membership of the EEA. I'm not sure she has worked out you NEED TO PAY a levy to be in the EEA and you need to accept free movement of people. There are two clear implications of EEA membership (1) you have to accept free movement of people and (2) you cannot have your own trade deals so Scotland may, depending on the Brexit terms, lose their biggest trade partner in the rUK and will need a hard border re free movement of people. Wow. That is just mind blowing to me.

@march@march  I am not trying to scupper the democratic process for my own agenda. I am questioning hard how a party that could not even muster a simple majority devolved Government can claim to be speaking for the democratic majority!  So they certainly do not have a democratic majority to impose another referendum in their own right. Thank god for the frigging useless feckless tree hugging greens coming to their rescue! I'll not be going to court to stop it or try to usurp it. I'll not even demonstrate against it. I'll just vote with my feet and leave them to it. From next month I will be paying a higher tax bill than my peers who work in England for the first time ever to pay for more "free stuff" for others. It will only get worse if we get Independence. So, I'm out ( or will be anyway.... )

Why is no-one questioning Queen Nic re her mandate - from the BBC of all places: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-39264468  Hardly a ringing hell yes!

"First, do voters in Scotland want a second referendum? And second, how might they vote if an independence referendum were to be held any time soon?

During recent months, a number of polls have asked people in a variety of different ways whether there should be a second independence referendum within the next couple of years.

They have all obtained much the same answer. Around a half say there should not be, while between a third and two-fifths say there should.

Most recently, for example, a poll conducted by BMG Research published in Monday's Herald newspaper found that 39% believe that another referendum should be held prior to the conclusion of the Brexit negotiations, while 49% are opposed to the idea."

So if we were being truly democratic first we would have a referendum on whether we wanted one on Independence or not!
