Will have zero effect, the Spaish authorities will just sit back, shrug their shoulders and say the decline in the economy from such action will just mean a bigger hand out from the EU.

After all, in their eyes, that's what the EU is for isn't it. Grab as much as you can whilst ignoring every edict of EU legislation that doesn't suit them.

They will just chuck a few more donkeys off church roofs to try and solve the problem 

Only here once

What really grinds my gears is that we have this https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thanet_Earth literally on the poxy doorstep, yet can I buy tomatoes or any other veg grown there? Can I bollocks, it's all Spanish, Dutch, Kenyan, Moroccan, and the like. I can usually be found having a good rant over the Tesco fruit and veg section any time I go in there.

Think this works for both leavers and remainers and says it all in terms of idiot Brexit refusers

From the BBC of all places:

More than half a million jobs in Scotland are supported by sales to the rest of the United Kingdom, according to analysis from economists.

The Fraser of Allander Institute study estimated that about 530,000 jobs were directly or indirectly related to sales from Scotland to the rest of the UK.

This was more than four times greater than the 125,000 jobs linked to the rest of the European Union.

The research was commissioned by the UK government.

The Scottish government said the findings ignored the fact that trade was a two-way process.

The UK government had asked the institute to estimate the number of jobs in Scotland linked to the demand for exports from the rest of the UK, the rest of the EU and other international exports.

Fraser of Allander said its economists used the most recent input-output datapublished by the Scottish government - for 2013 - alongside the Scottish government's export statistics to compile the report.

It concluded that in 2013:

  • 528,707 jobs were supported by exports to the rest of the UK
  • 125,206 to the rest of the EU
  • 177,553 to the rest of the world.

It said this meant that 24% of Scotland's total employment was supported by trade with the rest of the UK. The equivalent figure for trade with the rest of the EU was 5.7%, and for the rest of the world was 8.1%.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Well this election is meant to be all about Brexit so I thought it would be appropriate to post here about that new book by Yanis Varoufakis ;  "Adults in the Room".

You probably know that Mr. Varoufakis  was the Greek finance Minister who went to the EU cap in hand to get a bailout for Greece and they told him to sod off. He was basically seen as a troublesome "rebel".   

He lost his rag with them and had to be replaced by his Government . Of all the people in the debate, he has cause to be angry with the EU having been in "hand - to - hand combat" at close quarters .

To sum up, he says that the UK will get the same cold-shoulder treatment and the resolution should be a transitional Norway-style agreement pending actual departure.

Anyway I have only read a little of his book but it does sound like an absolutely vital read for whoever gets to go and "negotiate". He is a very good accessible and humorous writer by the way.

Having suffered a 25% decrease in their GDP...not a good position to be in !

Obviously I don`t know what was said to the EUrocrats by the Greeks afterwards but following on from Varoufakis`s arguments whoever it was probably reminded the Germans that  it was the same situation in Germany that got taken advantage of by that man with the silly moustache who shouted a lot ....not good for business or stability...

Indeed, but look at Germany now: Who"s the winner?

Greece milked the euro system for years, and the EU mandarins let them carry on. There was never any way they could pay back what they owed. The mandarins, scared shitless that Greece might drop out of the EU, and the whole house of cards would collapse, let them carry on by plugging them into a financial life-support system.

And theirin lies the problem today: The "cake and eat it generation". We've had a taste of the good life on the never-never, and don't want to pay the bill for it.

Indeed. Unfortunately we seem to be heading back to the 70's which were dark times. People wanted, and believed, they could get everything despite doing a minimum amount of work.

That attitude seemed to diminish in the 80's where the work ethic seemed to reappear, but we are heading back there again. Its almost inevitable that we will have to suffer a socialist union-ruled government at some point in the near future. Like Hollande in France it will be a one-term government as people wake up to the unfolding disaster.

The 70's were pretty dire. Seemed to me everyone was always on strike.

Perhaps I should have said:- "We've had a taste of the good life on the never-never, and don't want to pay the bill for it ourselves, instead we want anyone who might have some money to do it for us."
