And when the tide of facts disprove their entrenched views, rather than listen to the facts and adjust their views accordingly, they pop their fingers in their ears and shout the usual remoaners, losers, enemy of the peoples, traitors, FISH, liberal elite, taking back control, we won get over it, clear majority, islington types, blah blah blah


The hypocrisy of this post is fantastic.

I’ve just been listening to an account of this business on the wireless, Eb. Apparently when it came down to the final two tenders, De La Rue the current printers were undercut by the French firm to the tune of £17m.

Here’s the quandary British workers face going forward caught in the Con-Lab pincer: on the one hand you have those to whom any argument that doesn’t boil down to a financial bottom-line falls on deaf ears, on the other you have those to whom a call to national preference, national sentiment is met with blank incomprehension, or worse...

A contradiction in the arguments of Brexiters.!

Arguing for global free trade but demanding control if the trade freely goes elsewhere.

Shirley not?

Ok I get it, it’s all brexits fault even though we haven’t even left yet. ( you were even arguing the case that we are nowhere near leaving yesterday). Am I right to assume that you used to blame any British contracts sent abroad before the referendum on the EU? Na, didn’t think so.

On the passport issue


Tory MP and ardent Brexiteer Sir Bill Cash, chairman of the Commons European Scrutiny Committee, branded such a move “completely wrong and unnecessary”.

The tender to produce the passport was understood to have been put out across the EU under single market rules.

Sir Bill said: “I think it is incongruous to say the least. It is completely unnecessary and it is symbolically completely wrong.


As you say though, all the Brexiteers fault.

Great news.

That means another £17m for our NHS.

The same EU who pull the reigns on any idea our government has full stop. You’re right, it is a fact the laws and rights could change, as could many other things. What is also factual is that they could all change to our benefit, but that doesn’t sit well with your argument so you rule that out with no substance whatsoever.


Change to our benefit? errr you mean the government's benefit not us. I wouldn't trust them to run my f ucking bath.

In what way will the people of the UK have any say in the UK?

The Tories were given 800 grand by the Russians and 700 grand by Cambridge Analytica.

All business and capitalism itself are international, the £ is owned by the US dollar, we are owned and governed by the rich of the world.

We have no self determination.

"the right answer is probably somewhere in the middle" is partly to blame what got us into the shite in the first place.

"Keith Vaz" what a f*cking hypocritical c*nt of a man.

He wasn't even paying the rent boys he was bumming the minimum wage, not surprising that he was personally welcoming the East Europeans.

Meanwhile the head of the EU Claude Juncker is

Being investigated for for his role in illegal wire tapping.

Has been exposed for secretly blocking EU efforts to tackle tax avoidance by multinational corporations.

Being investigated for the unorthodox appointment of his chief of staff.

Spent £450k on travel expenses in 2 months.

Salt of the earth is good old Juncker and his cronies. At least once we’ve left the EU we can boot the Torres into touch where they belong. The EU doesn’t even give you that option.

The fact you have the audacity to criticise the tories for their self interest yet support the EU is quite comical really.

De La Rue makes passports for 40 countries and banknotes for 150.

Should these contracts also be kept 'in house' or is it just the British tax payer that should pay over the odds? What do you think Lohengrin? Should all those countries look after their own people instead - or don't we care about their national preference?

I suspect that they bid believing that the government wouldn't dare send this overseas, and have been caught out for being bloody greedy. Otherwise why on earth would a French company be able to undercut by such an extent?

I wonder how many of the posters reading this would before today have just automatically assumed that passports were printed by an arm of HMSO, or something similar? The majority I would assume? How many do you imagine are comfortable with the document being produced overseas?

Does the location of where Ghanaians have their banknotes printed cause me sleepless nights, is that really what you’re asking me?

Greed? Who knows, not me? I’ve not got the first idea what has gone on in the contract negotiations all I can tell you is that this instinctively feels like another incremental slip in our manufacturing decline. Yet another stab in the back.

I'm pointing out that it works both ways. De La Rue gains overall from a global marketplace.

As do many thousands of UK companies and, as a result, the employees of those companies.

You can't have it both ways.

Ironically, the protectionist nature of the EU has, to some extent at least, insulated UK companies. They will now find themselves competing without that protection against companies based all over the world. Including many countries who frankly don't care too much about employee rights, working hours, pay or safety.

That's only going to go one way.

I covered your last paragraph on a previous page. It’s a disaster waiting to happen.

A Passport isn’t just a ‘product’ though, it’s a security document. You simply do not, cannot, farm them out. For emerging countries the scenario may be different, but not for us. You know the dangers.

Well we have been farming out 20% of them for 9 years, and I assume you don't feel the same when British companies manufacture for overseas military? That's pretty crucial security stuff right there.

What about the Royal Mint looking close to home? They make coins for over 40 countries.

What about the German Parliament being designed by. British firm?

Rees Mogg et al have been telling everyone how wonderful this new 'free trading' world will be for everyone. Brexiteers think it's fantastic. And now they want protectionism. Lol. Time to wake up perhaps.
