Discussion in 'UK politics, current affairs and news' started by Kaka Tim, Jun 27, 2016.

?

Will we have a brexit?

  1. Yes - A fully independant Britain making its own way in the world (apart from scotland).

    18.4%
  2. A Semi-Detached Norway type deal

    33.5%
  3. No - 2nd referendum and/or face saving fudge to let us slink back in feeling a bit fucking stupid

    48.1%

    OMG That interview.

    To tell you what you voted for, would compromise our position to negotiate what you voted for. Which you voted for, let's be clear, but you *aren't* allowed to know what it was. How can I act in *your* best interests, if I tell *you* what *your* interests are?

    It's like being in a police station, and when your solicitor turns up, he does a "no comment" interview directly to you, when you try to get him to represent you. "I'm your solicitor. So I can't talk to you, only the police".

    Sure.

    I voted mainly for a greater connectedness with other EU countries, and the ability to influence other EU nations away from a veer towards the hard right. I voted against the sense of entitlement and superiority that has remained in Britain since colonial times, and against the image of our country as arrogant that is held abroad.

    All of which hold very much true.

    Was just reading a bod from youtube denying the dark hand of the russians* in the brexit vote. The most interesting thing though is that the youtube spokesbod is calle Juniper Downs. Thats beautiful. Weird, bit hippy, but a solidly poetic name




    *because ffs people get a grip

    You could say that about the people who voted remain, because of all its downsides it's still better than the devil you know.

    tbh if people had known on 23/6/16 that boris johnson, michael gove, theresa may and david davis would have the posts they do today the vote to remain would have been something like 70/30 in favour of remain.

    Maybe, Many people wanted out no matter the circumstances and probably never even considered the mechanics of it all. I still believe, no matter who has to deal with this current debacle labour or tory would do no better. The eu in my opinion are cunts and are worried about losing there grip if other countries follow us and want to leave. Its all punitive measures which ever you try to negotiate with them.

    Plus to counteract all the shite about immigrunts ruining our country, which had fuck all to do with the EU, or the vote, but which was hijacked by the media and politicians just wanting to be the nasty cunts they already are.

    I still can't get my head around why the referendum happened in the first place? Without going all tin foil hatted about it, who the fuck has benefitted or was supposed to benefit from it? What was the motive?

    yeh. but we don't have anyone trying to negotiate with them. we have people who turn up to make up the numbers.

    the eu are cunts. the tory party are cunts. the labour party are cunts. the ruling class are cunts. they're all a bunch of cunts.

    the europhile tories wanted to put the EU argument to bed for a generation. That went badly. Then came the snap election, a grab based on putting labour to bed for a generation while bolstering the dominant euroskeptic arm. And thats all gone according to plan, in another timeline.

    Very effective way of showing up the prejudices of a certain type of brexiter. And what those prejudices appear to centre on.

    That's not quite how it was. It's understandable to have blotted it from your memory because it seems like an absurd dream but, three years ago, everyone thought it was totally impossible for Ed Milliband not to be the next Prime Minister and that Ukip would take seats from the Tories all over the country. So our pig-bothering friend put the referendum in his manifesto to appease backbenchers worried about having to rely solely on their second incomes, safe in the knowledge that he would never have to act on it.

    Nope.

    But...even if it were true it would be explained by one of two things:-

    as mentioned before the pound has dropped in value...increased sales (and thus tax) is not an increase in productivity it's working and selling harder just to stay in the same place

    or

    fire sale (having this anyway btw...foreign producers will raise output so they can finish contracts, use up stocks and then leave or threaten to leave in order to get a better deal, the majority of contracts will be void at brexit...consider that)

    There is nothing, absolutely nothing to indicate, imply or infer that the UK will be in anything other than a much worse financial position after brexit.

    £1 = $1.40-ish right now. That's well up on it's immediate post-referendum position, which was about £1 = $1.20. In fact, it's back broadly to its position just before the referendum.

    The correct analogy is “I have lung cancer, I’ll swap it for pancreatic cancer if it causes grief for the cunts who gave me cancer in the first place.”
