1:19 pm today was the exact mid point from when the result that the Great British public had decided to leave the EU and the time 11pm March 29th 2019 that Democracy will be delivered.

Happy days.

Let's go for it.


If you want to aim low in life and feel thats the outlook. Fine.

Others will aim higher and go for this:

I see the remainers are still picking and choosing the polls, forecasts, predictions etc from economists to try and convince themselves that were right to vote remain and people who voted leave were wrong and are stupid, racist etc.

They seem to ignore the fact that these same economists forecast that the economy would crash immediately after the vote to leave and consumers would lose all confidence. They were all proved wrong. They simply have no idea how it will go and neither does anyone on here. Stop the bitterness and accept it. You’d swear people want it to end in tears just so they can give it high and mighty.


The worse thing the financial experts did was predict a recession. It was crass, dumbed-down headlining to try and grab attention. And they all got caught out when the global economy took an unexpected upturn.

The broad message behind it has unfortunately come true though. The leave vote has had a significant impact on economic performance. Household budgets have been squeezed to a tune of about £700/yr. The hit on UK growth has been estimated at about £300m per week based on about 7 different approaches to analysing this. We're now bottom of the G8 nations for growth and recovering slower than would be expected. And that's before leaving.

Meanwhile, every time the post Brexit position becomes a little clearer it seems we're looking at more cost and bureaucracy, much like this Vienna convention stuff today about driving & parking regs.

The scales are deeply tipped on one side at the moment. There seems a distinct lack of information about how leaving is going to make things simpler and/or better and/or cheaper.

To cut a long story short, what you're saying is that Britain isn't growing as fast as the EU thanks to the Brexit shit and nobody has a fecking clue as to what to do next.

I know he was and the sooner they go the sooner planners can get on with the task of reconstructing Britain’s auto industry.


Serious question.

If Nissan, Honda and Toyota all move production elsewhere, because we leave the customs union, how long do you thing it would take for the British owned auto industry to replace those lost jobs?

Hark at you. You call me a muppet but at least I knew what I was voting for. You are a blathering minge who voted blindly with all the other anti-immigrant tools, you really didn't know and still don't know what the outcome of your idiotic vote will produce.


Oh I know what I voted for pal. When the factory I used to work for did all they could to get rid of the local people that worked there only to replace them with polish. These were people that had worked there for years, and they wanted rid of us so they wouldn't have to pay out redundancy and they could use to poles basically as slaves!

Serious question:

What would it matter if Nissan etc buggered off anyway, like the rest of our factories, they are full of foreign workers.. so how will our people lose anyway?! We only gain! Once we are rid of these EU immigrants... less pressure on schools, hospital, roads, housing, jobs. When are you people going to wake up.

A two-year timeframe. That’s three to four times as long as it took to transition to wartime production.

What would you reckon, Sherp.

Shame on you Loh.

'Cuck'?

Really?

You're living in cloud cuckoo land. Seriously.


I’m toying with clothing my traditional disdain for such people in contemporary idiom. I’m a bit long-in-the-tooth to pull that off, you reckon? 😊

Anyway ‘cuckold’ is an apt description in this instance. How else would you sum up the position of those who would see other hands all over their own industrial and manufacturing base? Not just stand idle but in their cowardly impotence celebrate it?

Good questions. For what it's worth I think that the idea of the Common Market as a capitalist club working against the workers - the set position of the Left in the seventies - has long been proven to be wrong. Employees rights have been protected by the EU. The dilemma for Corbyn is that the Left has never explained that in the past.


There's no dilemma for Corbyn, he still believes it.

Five years ago I’d have agreed with you but if the Tata Steel saga has demonstrated anything it’s not just acceptance but enthusiasm for some form of nationalisation in particular circumstance. The driver this time around being neccesity rather than ideology.

There’s only two choices presenting themselves as an uncertain future looms as far as I can see, either roll over crying woe is me or planning to meet it. I don’t see too many options presenting themselves as things stand.

Where would the investment come from though? Who would be daft enough to invest when the Japs have bailed out?

Massive government subsidies?

Anyway off up the smoke for the weekend to watch the egg chasing,funnily enough paid for by Guinness,so may not be able to update over the weekend.I am sure one of the remoaner losers can do it since it’s obviously playing havoc in their little heads and the sooner the great day comes the sooner they will get over their bitterness and upset.

It would have to be exactly that for however long it takes. That scenario is infinitely preferable to the chaos that a collapse in primary manufacturing and supply chain would engender. I’m thinking along worse case scenario lines because the complete ineptitude of the Brexit negotiations are forcing it.

I feel a bit like a ship’s lookout who has been trying to point out the rocks to the bridge since well before the referendum, the captain though just put on a blindfold and maintained course. I’m now busily looking for something resembling a lifeboat before the whole crew goes under.
