Simply put, without the NHS: I'd never have been born (I'm an IVF baby). I'd have died in the womb (as did the triplets I was supposed to be part of). I'd have died at some point immedi

I didn't really want to get involved in this thread again, as emotions are very high, but I can't stand by and continue to be abused without putting my side across.  I'll try and quantify my view

So, WA passes into law. 
 

big questions for every brexiteer now including those on here :-   Do you still want frictionless trade with the EU - in which case the U.K. will have to maintain alignment with the EU rules and regulations ( level playing field ), or do you want to move towards the USA - meaning a deregulated  free trade agreement that represents only a tiny fraction of the value of the EU market and the probability of huge job losses in the U.K.? 
 

you knew what you voted for, so which do you want?

Any deal with America is rapidly starting to look like what's left of the UK will ultimately become an off European shores state of the USA. So much for taking back control. We have to use the telecoms suppliers the US tells us to.   American citizens can cause fatal road accidents, leave the country,  and cock a snook at our law enforcement. Food produced by all sorts of dodgy methods.

Going to leave you guys to your Big Ben Bong or No Bong emiseration over the coming days.

Just received my HMG official advice to UK Citizens living in Malta.

It doesn't actually say I should move all my tax affairs from the UK to Malta (I remained a UK tax payer until shortly after the December General Election result) but HMG helpfully provides a section of website and email links  and detailed description on how to terminate tax affairs in the UK and move them all to Malta while retaining full access to accrued benefits from the UK.

I am sorry guys but it is now fact that vehicle and aircraft manufacturing in the UK will be as much ancient history five years from now as coal mining is now. I can take you to the factory sites under construction in Toulouse and Munich if you don't believe me.

 

Meantime my business relocating people and institutions away from the UK is booming- thank you Chaddy for voting to restore to my former levels of wealth.

Since the Election, two international schools, one UK University, one international medical research institution and two breathtaking high tech scale-ups all committed to leaving the UK- those are just my clients. As I am fluent in French, the French press have reported something like 50,000 financial services jobs and several Bank HQs leaving London for Paris since the Election. This has not been reported with any prominence in the UK press- no idea why not....

Amongst all the gloom and doom nobody seems to have noticed that the IMF are forecasting the UK to have higher growth rates than the Eurozone for this year and next.

Every forecast has shown we will be worse off out of the EU----all ignored by the Government and you lot.

Does it matter? The lemmings will still vote Tory even when they bring back child labour

Yep, all people who want to leave the EU are stupid. Ever thought it might be you that is wrong.? 

Of course I do. With any opinion, you have to wonder if you're wrong. But then, have YOU ever asked yourself if you're wrong? Or have you simply believed all that our media have told you about EU laws restricting things they've never restricted, or the EU planning to do things they've never actually planned, merely put forward as discussion points? Have you not noticed all the projects the EU has funded - in Britain we dont display those things on hoardings across the country, as they do in the rest of the EU? Have you simply decided you want to 'take back control' without thinking what that means, handing control to unelected people like Dominic Cummins, and to the serial liar that is Boris Johnson, to the incompetence of Dominic Raab and Michael Gove, and the callousness of Rees-Mogg and Patel? I may be wrong. Brexit may be the greatest thing since sliced bread, in which case I'll eat humble pie, but if it all goes wrong and things get considerably worse, I will feel free to gloat and say 'I told you so' , as often as I feel like saying it

I don’t think they’re ALL stupid no. Most of them didn’t have a clue what they were talking about though. Still don’t.

I must admit. Looking back, the Tory press were a bit of a disgrace. Talk about killing journalism.

Even after the election result there were excerpts on the TV where 'reporters' (and I use that term losely) went to so-called former Labour strongholds like 6 fingered Toryley and asked why they didn't vote for Corbyn.

'I didn't like his policies' were amongst the typical soundbite answers.

To which there weren't any follow up questions such as the really obvious one: 'What policies didn't you like?'

It seems like the whole thing was one big stitch up. To sum up..

A soundbite press supporting a soundbite Prime Minister supported by soundbite thickos.
