W3526602 - 2018-08-25 8:42 AM....................Have the Remoaners not considered what will happen when BREXIT happens depite their efforts to prevent it, and then THEY un-expectantly find it's their job to clear up the mess that THEY have orchestrated? 602

Eh? Who voted for Brexit despite being told it was a bad idea? Hmmmm; tricky that. Now let me see. It couldn't have been the Brexiters could it? Seems a possibility, don't you think?

So, if the mess that is now Brexit (as forecast before the vote) is disagreeable to Brexiters, it is somehow the fault of those who voted to remain. Er, yep, it must be true - but only in Brexitland. For the rest of us, those who don't inhabit a world of inverted logic, it seem the consequences of voting for Brexit are entirely the responsibility of the Brexiters.

I'm going to propose a special tax post Brexit that will affect only Brexiters, and will rise or fall proportionately to the rise or fall in the UK economy. After all, why should I pay for the misguided actions of others when they were clearly warned what to expect? In fact, I may even suggest the tax is levied only on those parts of the UK that voted to leave the EU, as opposed to the individuals. Seems fair to me.


Oh the Brexiteers will blame anyone but themselves Brian when it all goes Tits up. It will be the fault of the Remoaners or the EU but not them. Despite their hopeless endeavour to take us over a cliff with no plan whatsoever it wont be their fault. When there is a recession they will say "oh that would have happened anyway or we were due one about now" like its a number 9 bus.

I agree with your tax idea. Seems fair. As motorhomers though if we are lucky enough to get European Citizenship post Brexit I think it should only be available to Remoaners. We should have a special lane painted Blue with gold stars on it which runs from the M25 to Dover. No Brexiteers allowed in it.

If you have not already expressed an interest in the European Citizens Initiative you can do so here. https://eci.ec.europa.eu/002/public/#/initiative Its legit, ive checked it out.

There have been a number of "remoaners " who have come up with ideas on how Brexiteers and Remainers should be treated differently - but the flaw in those ideas is that the vote was secret - so no individuals can be identified as either.

IF things go badly I'm guessing you would find that hardly anyone will admit they voted to leave the EU.

It would be possible to discriminate by constituency of course - but none that I know of voted 100% to leave - so remainers in those constituencies would be adversely affected by any post Brexit retribution.

So - how would your " special Blue lane to Dover" be policed ?

UK June 2018 128799......previous month 137225

As for Panasonic Europe Ltd it makes sense that those 20 jobs go to Europe .........

<<< UK Car production down 11% and now Panasonic is moving its European HQ from UK to Netherlands. >>>

Hi,

Two questions ...

Is car production in Europe up or down? The last I heard, VW sales were down following the emmissions scandal. I suggest that British car production, and sales of all EU cars in UK, are down due to the taxation system. My wife's 1995 Korean car costs £30 a year to tax. Buying a new car would immediately add £100+ in increased VED. Both my 1959 Land Rover and 1971 Morris 1000 Estate are VED exempt, and MOT exempt. Insurance is £100 and £50 respectively.

Or perhaps it's the new fangled leasing scheme is catching up with the finance houses? Can the ex-leasers afford to start again, or are they stuck with buying THEIR ex-lease car at an exorbinate price? Asking, cos I don't know.

And this is Brexit good news why?

Did we leave over the weekend? Was I too pished to realise?

0.1% higher than forecast. Talk about clutching at straws.

Maybe its all the Brexit stockpiling we are doing. It also says "driven by a rise in activity in Britain’s dominant services". The very services your type of Brexit will crucify.

It also says manufacturing down by 0.2% but never mind. I am sure all those countries outside the EU in Bongo Bongo land will be queuing up to by our over priced British products if we leave the EU.

Looks like it will be down to you to make all the car components in your pelmetshop when we can't get them from the EU.
Seriously we import just-in-time components and export finished cars.
They can get finished cars from all over the world.
Where else can we get the components from.?
And you still think we can dictate trade terms to the EU

Those components can be made here ...........

I guess it'll depend whether tariffs will make it more economical viable to make them here ..........

Price is the only reason they're made where they are .........

Hi,

I drive a 1959 109" Land Rover. I bought a brand new galvanised chassis for approx £2,000. It was made in Britain. I bought a complete exhaust system, pipes, gaskets, clamps, rubber hanges and all the nuts and bolts ... delivered to my door ... about £60, but I don't know where it was made. Zero depeciation.

Personally, I have little interest in what is left of the rest of the British motor industry. I guess they feel the same about me.

The EU refer to Britain as "Treasure Island". I wonder what gives them that idea?

Hi,

The EU refer to Britain as "Treasure Island". I wonder what gives them that idea?

Never heard that quoted but certainly re.Land Rover Bulgaria has a thriving parts import industry. I was talking with a young Bulgarian chap a few weeks ago who works for a Brit guy who lives there running a successful business selling Land Rover parts. It soon became clear it was more than just a job to this Bulgarian chap. He was a Land Rover fanatic who knew all there was to know about them with an ambition to own an original Series 1.

Hmm. Thats odd as immigration has not really gone down. EU workers are leaving in droves but None EU immigration (as predicted) has shot up to compensate. Still, you will be able to recognise the funny foreigners easier if we leave the EU as they will be a different colour.
