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

Whaddya think, Teribus? Asks Shaw:

Steve Shaw - 23 Oct 17 - 09:58 AM

And posts the following:

"From the Beeb news today:

1: The UK risks losing jobs and investment without an urgent Brexit transition deal, Britain's five biggest business lobby groups have warned.

The UK's negotiating team have been ready, willing and able to negotiate such a deal since the 29th March 2017 - The EU Commissions negotiators HAVE NOT. They, the EU Negotiators, have ignored the EU's own guidelines and rules related to these negotiations.

2: In a joint letter being sent to Brexit Secretary David Davis, the groups including the CBI and Institute of Directors, say time is running out.

What an amazing statement of the plainly and blindingly obvious. I would have thought that the last person in the UK that needs to be told this is David Davis. I wonder if Michel Barnier was copied on the letter?

3: The head of the CBI said firms wanted an agreement on the transition period by the end of the year.

I could send anyone in government a rather long list of things that people might want by the end of the year - doesn't mean that they are going to get their wishes granted. Sounds as though this letter should have gone to Santa Claus. Unfortunately for all concerned these negotiations involve the EU Commission and it is THEY who have dragged their feet, it is THEY who have delayed the process.

4: A government spokesman said the talks were "making real, tangible progress".

They I would suggest are the best placed and best informed to make such a statement.

5: CBI director-general Carolyn Fairbairn told the BBC: "One of the big messages from firms is 'get on with it' on both sides.

"This is real, this is urgent and a transition agreement by the end of the year would help enormously to keep investment and jobs in the country," she said.

Unlike you Shaw (& Co.), Carolyn Fairbairn appears to have hoisted in the fact that it takes two sides to negotiate and two sides to reach an agreement - because of intransigence, inflexibility and a refusal to follow their own guidelines on the part of the EU negotiating teams I do not believe that there is any chance of such an agreement being in place in the CBI's desired time frame.

6: And what about that service sector, which is going to face multiple bureaucratic barriers once we leave without a good deal?

Tell us what multiple bureaucratic barriers the "service sector" will face. IF things are made more difficult it will actually boost the requirement and involvement of those involved in the "service sector", but I suppose having never, ever had any experience of working within the "service sector" you would fail to appreciate that point.
