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

You've done this before with a worthless company....it literally is a worthless company...can't find any record of the business apart from a couple of inactive incorporates.  

Show me the actual monetary worth of these people loss to back up your claims....?  Looks like a right tin pot set up...

47er you need to strengthen your argument 

WTF are you on about? Done what before with a worthless company? Name one.

Anyway this was a post from Den which I simply copied---did you read that bit?

Its obviously a private company, how wealthy it is I don't know. But I notice Selfridges stock its stuff so its not a grocery store is it?

In any case the owner is telling us his own experiences with Brexit as have loads of other people. Like all Brexiteers you close your ears to it and prefer your own alternate facts.

The similarities between the Trump supporters who still believe the election was stolen and the Brexiteers who refuse to believe anything can possibly be wrong with the " deal " is pretty glaring.

According to Den's post on the Corona thread, the Cheshire Cheese Co have got this all wrong as well Gav!

 

Another one. Project reality now.

 
 
 
Did I really put it on the corona thread? Must have been one of my ever more frequent senior moments 47er.

Yeah, you just see something that looks like it backs your argument up and post it.  This company are worthless and why bring such a pointless point up....?

Excuse me but what renders a £2.5m turnover profitable award winning company employing 38 people in Macclesfield worthless?

Other than in Johnson's "Fuck business" world?

What an utterly condescending post so typical of the vacuous pit that is Brexit.

You're talking absolute drivel. You have no evidence at all to show that the firm was worthless. If you have ---post it. Are there no absurdities you won't stretch to to defend the indefensible?

You are going to hear a lot more of this stuff as time goes on. It won't just hit Company owners,what do you think this will do for jobs?

Not what the doom and gloom merchants were expecting.

Brexit: Nissan commits to keep making cars in Sunderland - BBC News

That is good news indeed. In order to export tariff-free to Europe cars must be at least 55% made in Britain with British components.

With EV's the batteries count for 33% of the car, so it doesn't take much more to get over the hurdle.

Nissan  are switching from importing batteries from the USA to making them here. Good for us!

You told us that the UK fishing industry was irrelevant Philipl, and worse, you're not alone in that stance either.

Fishing employers 10 thousands of people, brings over £1bn into UK economy.

Now a tiny cheese company (Important as it is) is the stick to beat brexiteers with.

A load of Rubbish.

We have today received 2 high price items for Germany, ordered in the last week, at no extra cost than before Brexit.

Again that rag of a paper is using phrases like "are now supposed to have £xxx" and "which can range from 0% to 25%"

Its fabricated nonsense, I'd cancel my subscription if I was you, they're lying to you.

I've had a thought here Gav. When did you place the order?

If its been ordered before Jan 1st then the former rules apply and there's no charges whenever its delivered.

I mentioned in the post, it was ordered this week, on Monday to be precise. 

I'm not disputing problems are happening, but its not our experience since the turn of the year.

A monster subsidy has been paid.

Any proof of that? Or is that just sour grapes from you after you were wrong about Nissan?

I caught a headline earlier from the " Mirror " that importers are having problems bringing stuff into the UK from the EU. Returning faulty goods isn't worth the trouble anymore, it's a mine field of red tape.

I used to buy watches via a web site called " Chrono 24 ". It's an umbrella organisation for people wanting to buy and sell watch from all over the world based in Germany.  It was really well run and relatively trouble free prior to Brexit. What it'll be like now is anybody's guess but what I'll guarantee is it won't be easier and it won't be cheaper than it was before.

Looking on the bright side it'll save me money because I won't be dealing with them again until I know exactly what the rules are and what the excess charges will amount to.

Its great news for the workers in Sunderland, all 7000 of them, they support 75,000 jobs across EU also.

A no brexit deal would have put all those highly skilled workers on the dole, thankfully that hasn't happened.

Cheshire cheese 😆

With respect to both Den and Tyrone, they're hardly major international traders 47er.

The UK sold £1.3bn worth of dairy products to the EU in 2019, more than three times exports to the rest of the world. One producer isn't a big deal but add them all up together.....
