Not only that, the figure of £350 million is a downright lie. If an actual figure could be gleaned at all from the plethora of financial wheelings, dealings, subsidies, tariffs and rebates that characterises our relationship with the EU, it's more like £160 million. Google this for a breakdown:

"Boris Johnson?s £350m claim is devious and bogus. Here?s why"
(John Lichfield, Guardian, 18 Sept).

As he points out, the "true" figure would be far more likely to be seen as an acceptable cost by people weighing up the pros and cons of our membership. The article also puts into perspective what the numbers relating to our contribution and what the EU spends actually mean percentage-wise when set beside our GDP. They are surprisingly small.

I did promise I would get back to Nigel's post about the border, but I will keep it brief.
FAILED

The border as it is at present, is, presumably, the type of border that the Irish (both North & South) would like to see in the future.
Why should this change?


The border question was in the original critical things to resolve, it was listed on Friday by Tusk as one of the key things still needing to be resolved, the Taoiseach and the Irish minister have both said the issue is unresolved and Teresa May, in saying it is 'almost resolved', agrees it still isn't.

We also have an veritable army of civil servants on both sides beavering away at it.

Do you honestly think "we can just do more or less what we do now, can't we?" hasn't be considered and rejected?

Then you say the UK does not want a hard border. The problem there is that it is perfectly possible to want contradictory things at the same time. So when the Irish government asks the UK to formally commit that it will not have a hard border it turns out is unwilling to do so, as detailed in the links others have provided. And to be honest I can see why they would want to retain the *option* of a hard border, even though they don't want a hard border.

Finally, though, here is a clipping from, I think, the Times, though it might have been the Telegraph:

While the British have made all the right noises about maintaining the border in its current state, no details as to how this can be achieved have been forthcoming. Suspicions that the issue was not being taken seriously were underlined on Friday when Boris Johnson, the British foreign secretary, suggested that matters relating to the Irish border could be resolved as part of a wider discussion on EU borders, including that between Dover and Calais. Mr Johnson's apparent failure to understand the differences between these borders is alarming and capped a bad week for Anglo-Irish relations.


You appear (whether through ignorance, or unwillingness to look at the actual details of the negotiations) unable to realise that UK and The Republic of Ireland cannot decide what will happen.
Although both would wish that there will not be a 'hard' border, Ireland are not able to negotiate their own position. They have to wait for the EU to tell them what their position will be.

Fortunately we are getting out of this madness!

"and there was me thinking Jim had lost his keyboard."
You wish !!!
I'm sure you know the old Billy Connolly statement - "If you want to confuse a policeman, ask him a question"
The same appears to apply to Brexiters.
"Can anyone see the border issue leading to a united Ireland?"
Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has stated that Ireland will have no part in any negotiations without an agreement on an open border
As far as the North is concerned, the religious gap between the Catholics and Protestants that the leadership has so long depended on is rapidly shrinking and the DUP is so far up to its arse in scandal and contradiction that its position is becoming untenable
The 13% that declared they supported a United Ireland 7 years ago have now swelled enormously and Sinn Fein, once a hardline republican party, is now just one seat short of being Stormont's largest party, with 27 seats to the Democratic Unionist Party's 28 seats.
It seems to me that a UNited Ireland is now on the cards

This is why the country is divided. Some people are now quite happy to make excuses for outright lies, as if the truth is an irrelevance. I'm sure they'll argue that the advert wasn't on the bust wasn't supposed to be the truth and he, we all knew it wasn't nudge-nudge... but the truth is it was pitched as a fact and people (lots) DID believe it was a fact.

That leaflet, by the way, is from Gisela Stuart who was co-chair of the Leave campaign so the leaflet presumably does reflect "Vote Leave"'s stance: we are not talking some remote mp who may be off message. Also, of course, these leaflets are designed to be stuck in windows so the reverse side, which has more caveats, would not be visible.

If I've said it once in this forum I've said it twenty times. The whole referendum campaign was disreputable, dishonest and undemocratic ON BOTH SIDES OF THE DEBATE. Thank you. Now as for the 350 million per week for the NHS, it doesn't matter what clever ol' Nigel "read between the lines" (so he tells us now that the thing has been exposed as a blatant lie - face-saving or what, Nigel??): the CLEAR intention of the simplistic message was to hoodwink the public into thinking that leaving would mean an extra 350 million per week for the NHS. It was not only emblazoned on Boris's bus but was reinforced again and again by Farage and co. and I don't recall too many of your fellow leavers, saying "Hang on a sec, whoa, chaps, let's not over-egg the pudding here..."

You, presumably, accepted all the lies spoken by the 'Remain' side, and are totally amazed that we didn't get immediate mass unemployment and a sixty billion pound 'black hole' in the budget, and require an immediate punitive budget immediately after the vote.

The lies told by the Remain campaign have already been proved as such. The claims made by the leave campaign can only be truly judged once we actually leave.

We threw the spanner in the works by voting to leave. The current border arrangement can't work because it will in future be between an EU and a non-EU country. One in the EU customs union, the other not. It is not about the EU throwing a spanner in the works. It is about the EU doing what it should be doing as a group of 27 nations, making sure that its rules are maintained.

"It almost seems a shame to bring in a level of reasoned argument."

Don't be so bloody rude. There have been plenty of contributions in this thread putting reasoned arguments from remainers. Convince us of your own mighty powers of reasoning, Nigel, starting off by telling us where the ?350 million a week for the NHS is coming from.
