Euro question - 23rd June

Ok , I only worked in large corporates so no idea on smaller businesses. So the no deal (hopefully) happens and you need to continue business with 2 or 3 countries in the Eu , there’s no Ec sales list anymore as we’ve no transition period. What occurs? Is it business as usual with either an Eu tariff applied or individual country tariffing etc .... again no clue just wondering how it’ll work?

 

Our items wont have any tariffs as they are computer-related items and are tariff-free for all EU countries for imports.

If someone is selling for example car parts, which usually have tariffs they would be at the EU-wide rate I assume, for all EU countries. Its not really a concern of the exporter.

The issue is more about disruption to “just in time” supply chains of car makers in particular. 

It is crazy that the May’s government entire Brexit strategy is based on preserving the “just in time” efficiencies .. the industries will have to learn to cope

It's surely heading towards a second referendum.

A fair way would be to ask two questions.....

1) Do you want to stay in the EU or leave the EU?

2) If a majority of voters in this referendum want to leave the EU would you prefer to leave with 'the Deal' or with 'no deal'?

A failure to answer both questions will count as a spoilt paper and be discarded.

@duncx - We've already had a referendum for your No 1)

So if there was a further referendum, there could only be No 2..

Completely agree - we should have another referendum - and keep having them until we get the answer I want!

Why is it though? Are the UK government going to delay imports of car components? Why would they?

The problem with that is that the remainers would NEVER EVER shut up about it and the country and parliament would remain divided.

If we voted remain then the remainers would have been right - enough people have changed their mind now they have an understanding of what's on offer. I'm not actually sure that that's the case!

If we voted out again then at least everyone has a say in how we come out and hopefully we can get on with it with a cast iron mandate from the electorate.

I didn't say if I count myself as a leaver or a remainer - I am genuinely thinking of how we could move forward from this stalemate.

Ah …. but then if Remain won a second referendum, we would need a third just to be sure. etc. etc.

I'll post this again

I know and I don't necessarily disagree. However, as it stands there is no chance of May's deal getting through and I'm beginning to think that there is no chance of a no deal exit - parliament is simply not going to let it happen. We have to move forward somehow.

I was also not counting myself as a Leave or Remainer either in this situation I was, admittedly clumsily, trying to make a point on democracy. If we keep voting on a point until an outcome is changed then we will not be living in a democracy. We need to be careful that an approach that may overcome a current situation creates a precedence that has greater ramifications further down the road.

Current situation is that so many of Conservative MPs are so far up themselves jostling for position, & only thinking about themselves, they can’t see that the party is imploding in the same way as Labour did a few years ago.

There’s no better way to lose a general election than internal squabbling!

I agree, it's far from ideal to have a 2nd referendum and I can see compelling arguments both for and against the idea. I'm just hoping for a way forward and trying to add some compromise into my thinking. At the moment I can't see any other way that isn't going to seriously disenfranchise at last half the population one way or the other, and of course I recognise that a narrow vote to remain wouldn't do anything to solve that. Oh dear :(

We were asked a very simple question last time.

The government spent £9M on propaganda shit which dropped through every letter box in the uk. This spelled out what would happen. 

Why are we in the deal pishe situation. That was never the choice. It’s some old crap made up by idealistic Eurocrats and we are being played.

we need a political leader with a backbone whom will encourage belief in our success. The Germans failed twice to conquer Europe in wartime they will fail a third time with this political coup and we will be back to being great again.

Good idea. Who do you have in mind from our currently elected fuckwitters ?

David Davies is probably the least worst option.

I think it’s the disruption caused at Dover due to French/EU checks on UK exports to EU. Apparently car components cross borders many times as they are built. 

So UK companies can be caused disruption due to UK components which need EU bits before returning to UK being held up by French/EU checks.

It’s not all the fault of the politicians; the country is massively divided and there isn’t a unifying vision that any politician has that people can get behind 

As a result, no politician would have been able to avoid the mess that we are in

however, if we had planned seriously for no deal properly - so that we could actually call EU’s bluff and walk away - we would have been able to avoid the panic that is driving much of the events at this late stage; and not be pushed around or scared into submission

Act 10: vote called-off by PM#2 at 11th hour. The farce continues.

Edit.

Act 10. vote called-off by PM#2 at 11th hour and No Confidence election is called.
