Teribus BS: Post Brexit life in the UK (6498* d) RE: BS: Post Brexit life in the UK 23 Oct 17


" I have yet to hear any "facts" with regard to Brexit .......... by either side in the UK."

Really Raggy?? How about this one:

Due to the result of the Referendum on Membership of the EU held in the UK on 23rd June, 2016 and the formal notification of our intention to leave the EU, triggering the Article 50 process, delivered on the 29th March, 2017. As of the 29th March 2019 the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland will no longer be a member of the European Union.

There is no "hard Brexit" there is no "soft Brexit". We are either "IN" or "OUT", and we will be "OUT".

At the moment the UK negotiating team is fully prepared and willing to discuss and negotiate all aspects of our leaving the EU as is stated as a requirement by the EU's own procedures. The EU's negotiators on the other hand are not. The time is ticking away, the clock is running down and as it does so there is greater likelihood of there being a "no deal" result. Now who's fault is that? For there to be any sort of deal the EU Commission MUST START negotiations.

Other facts about Brexit Raggy:

1: The UK is one of the EU's best internal customers. The EU loses a market of 65 million people, who will turn to other products from alternative suppliers in order to keep the weekly household bills down.

2: The cheaper pound? Has improved our exports and made our products more attractive world-wide, including the EU.

3: Out of the 27 countries in the EU post-Brexit there are only 9 of them who are detailed as being net contributor states with Germany being by far the largest contributor. German industry will also be the sector hit the worst by losing us as a customer. For the gravy train to continue down the track as it is, those 9 net contributor states have to find an additional 11 billion, possibly more, between them, which I doubt they can do.

4: While Backwardsman wails about the pound going through the floor (which it has not) he conveniently forgets to detail or mention the woes and tribulations of the Eurozone that are very real and widespread (Macron in France had best get on with pushing his reforms through, he has done nothing yet and his much vaunted "new broom" promises are beginning to look as impotent and ineffectual as the one's promised previously by Hollande). Greece with all it's problems for the Eurozone is still there and there is a list of other Eurozone countries that are perilously close to facing similar problems.
