You couldn't make sh1t like this up, the UK giving money to the EU to take jobs from the UK.

Rant over, I feel better now. :rofl:

If you want an even more thorough rant: The EU gave grants to Ford to move the Transit plant from Southampton to TURKEY which isnt in even in the EU!

What is import duty if not another tax. If all this comes true then the government is in for a tax windfall and they can then afford to give us all tax breaks to re-stimulate our spending. Or drop it into the black hole called the NHS.

Exactly. Many people in the media seem to forget this. They talk as if tariffs are a cost which disappears into some black hole.

Nah. All part of the master plan to leave with no deal as world trade rules!

It's just a game of who blinks first.

This is panning out as I predicted some time ago, unfortunately.

Corbyn has now been persuaded to endorse a "peoples vote". Mays deal will get rejected, everything will be postponed during which time the pressure from the establishment will reach breaking point, a vote will be taken which will result in remaining. May will not care as she was a remainer.

Not according to the news I was reading tonight. He's back tracking again. But maybe I was watching Russian TV and it was all fake. Maybe I'm fake. I'm actually Tracey from Middlewich..... 🤪

I predict a riot

I see people are talking about if we do not leave on the 29th then they will stop the direct debit council tax payments until such time as we leave the EU.

 

Civil disobedience....

That kind of action is far better than rioting, which is mindless and destructive and what the French do.

It ends up with people such as the Police having to resist when they might well be on the same side.

Ive heard people say that will hit the wrong people etc. but like you said its not mindless destruction of property.

The Government promised to leave on the 29th and most average people promised to pay their council tax like the good people most of us are.

That skip looks full, you should get another in Barry and finish the garage clear out properly.

Does not surprise me one bit. We are all sleepwalking through losing WWIII

Ffs (and I apologise for swearing, even in acronyms) it isn’t 1945, it’s 2019. They are our partners, our neighbours, in some cases our families. 

I think you should be ashamed of yourself for even posting such tripe and think you should take the opportunity to go and edit/ take back your post. (I’ll edit mine in turn)

Else I think you should think about whether or not you share the right values for this board.

@JG220 I think Barry has every right to express his opinions and last I looked the UK was a free country and censorship was not a way of life here - you should be ashamed of promoting censorship and preventing the right to freedom of speech in in my opinion. You need top think about whether or not you share the right values for this board.

Yep, it’s a free country, but I thought on here at least we had a modicum of respect. 

Suggesting that we are at war with Europe is beyond the pale. 

In any case, aren’t you rather contradicting yourself if you defend Barry’s free speech and follow by a call for me to be silenced?

I agree that it's hardly World War 3.  It is a complete mess, though and I have no idea of what the best solution would be.

I’m afraid this is the typical left wing liberal response that’s all too often trotted out.

our own democracy is in real danger of being subverted. The propaganda during WWII is mild in comparison to the current situation. 

I would suggest you look at the underlying issues by which certain groups are trying to undermine a massive democratic vote. Millions of hero’s died for our very right to democracy and home rule.

sit back and reflect

Only here once

As soon as Mrs May gave parliament the option of voting down a no-deal Brexit, she removed any incentive that the EU may have had to give any concessions. She knew what she was doing. Her ‘deal’ will get heavily defeated (again) - just as she expects - and they’ll then vote to reject no-deal followed by the vote to postpone from 29th March, which takes us inevitably to a second referendum.

I don’t think it’s incompetence, neither the government or parliament has ever wanted to leave.

I won’t march or burn cars in protest, or withhold my Council Tax, I’ll just cast my protest vote at the next general election.

Well said James this thread is getting way out of hand, with some extreme views, i dread to think what the European friends on this Forum think of us.

We all appreciate free speech, but some people put there self opinionated views with dreadful bad manners that they think are funny and when someone disagrees with them use the get out of jail card it’s just a bit of humour, it’s worn a bit thin on your behalf now.
