Not me, old fruit - I'm merely quoting some of the amusing mis-spellings perpetrated by Union-Flag bedecked, dumb-fuck Leave voters around Internet sites and forums since the Referendum (hence my quotation-marks). Hilarious that some of the most vocal protagonists of the 'Take Our Country Back' meme don't even have the intelligence or education to spell it correctly.

2. Leave EU with Mrs May's deal (although it has not yet been agreed by EU)
3. Stay as a member of EU (if they'll still have us, and on our former terms? or on harsher terms than previously?)

The EU is corrupt. It has failed to present accounts for goodness knows how long.
The EU is incompetent. Had the EU offered any kind of effective reform before the referendum we may not have voted to leave.
The EU is dishonest. When we last voted in the 70s it was about remaining in or leaving an economic community. The plan for political union existed then but was hidden. This was dishonest.
The EU is undemocratic. We were never allowed to vote on stuff they reckoned we would reject. We cannot elect any of the people who originate policy.

Re another referendum, recent polling suggests that a majority want a hard-Brexit so no-one is being convinced by all the Remain doom-mongering.

Stanron claims to have posted negatives of EU membership, but the only one I can see in Stanron's posts is that the EU places tarriffs on foreign food. Which is largely not true and the EU has negotiated tariff free access to EU markets for many food producers, particularly those in the third world. which accounts for the wide variety of countries of origin you see on the labels on supermarket shelves. But when weighed against the positives of EU membership:

Tariff free access for European food
Frictionless trade across borders
Access to the vast European market for UK goods
Euratom
Horizon2020 and the predecessor Framework programmes
Erasmus
Opportunities for our young people to live, work and travel across a whole
    continent.
EHIC
ERDF
ESF

Stanron's negatives seem trivial indeed.

One more point, before I leave for work!

No one knows what is going to happen in the next few weeks and months. There has been a lot of talk of elections and a second referendum, for example.

"Leave" won the last one by a few percentage points, and could win another by the same margin, perhaps. But if they want to be as sure as possible of winning, they need to persuade some who voted remain to vote leave should another referendum appear. So there is every reason for the leavers here to present arguments that might persuade remainers.

Equally, remainers don't do themselves any favours if they just abuse leavers.

It would seem that every commentator, business magnate, financial authority is wary or even very dubious of out move out of the EU.

Well, I suppose we can live in hope which seems to be all the Brexiteers can offer us although I have to say I am not at all confident in their hopes.

"You all will be distracted by insults and getting down in the weeds of minutia but keep your eyes on the big picture of power grabs by the rich."

Yes, Don - precisely what I've been saying ever since the BrexShit (your delicate sensibilities upset by that word again, Keefy? Tough...errrrmm....shit!) debacle began. The Leave Campaign was a tool of those people - designed to press the racist, xenophobic, and nationalistic buttons of a group of permanently-dissatisfied people who were looking for a scapegoat for every perceived 'injustice' and drawing their eyes away from the ball with their red buses, and meaningless slogans.

BrexShit has never been anything whatsoever to do with the people "Taking are cuntry back", or 'Taking Back Control', but everything to do with a tiny group of immensely-wealthy people Taking Back Control for their own purposes. They needed a lot of easily-deluded people to fall for the BrexShit bullshit and bollocks and, by virtue of a deceitful campaign of their own and a badly-run, flawed Remain campaign, they found them - 17 million of them.

I made a prediction, when Theresa May became PM, that a way to prevent the lunacy of BrexShit happening would eventually, one way or another, be found, and that is looking more and more likely with every farcical day that passes.

Please God, give us a sign and make it so.

I'm not suggesting that the forecast was inaccurate, but that it found its way into the papers shortly prior to the Chequers meeting in order that it could be used as an indication of possible problems coming from Brexit.

Airbus bosses are furious after the Government spurred them to publish a dire forecast of the impact of Brexit before handing a prize £2bn RAF contract to US rival Boeing without a competition.

The Telegraph has learnt that last month’s bombshell warning from Airbus that it could be forced to leave the UK came after discussions with senior Remainer ministers preparing for the Chequers summit.

On Airbus: That is reading a great deal between the lines, Nigel. The article suggests that Airbus were encouraged to release the forecast. There is nothing to suggest the forecast was anything other than Airbus' genuine opinion - or at least not in the section I can read before the paywall obscures things. So referring it it as "a put up job" is not something you would allow anyone else to get away with, I think.

On the other hand, Brexiteers have an easier job of neglecting poverty, promoting inequality and lighting bonfires for racism.
You all have a chance to be a world leader like America in child poverty, incarceration and bad health out comes. You have gone from income inequalties of 6 to 1 and now 12 to one with a final goal outcome of 20 to 1. Why envy American examples of certain corporate incomes of 200 to 1 when you too can send income distribution soaring to the top.

MAINTAINING BRITISH STANDARDS
Jim Carroll


Interesting link, but I would question its accuracy (even if it is from the Telegraph):
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, a leading economic forum, said that the wealthiest tenth of society now earn 12 times as much as the poorest, up from eight times as much in the 1980s.

In addition the amount of total income taken by the top 1 per cent of earners - including bankers, managers and executives - has doubled to 14 per cent.

By contrast, the top tax rate has fallen while benefits for the poorest have become less generous.


The article is from 2011, at which time the top rate of income tax was 50% the highest it had been since 1990, so hardly matching the claim which I've included in bold

While the inclusion of one false premise doesn't automatically invalidate the whole article, it does call into question the reliability of the article.
I am, of course, assuming that all the comments follow on from the first and that he is comparing 'now' (2011) with the 1980s. This is on the basis that he doesn't state any other dates for comparison.

Sunday Times today,
"In an interview with the Sunday Times Magazine, New Zealander Crawford Falconer said “the world is begging for the UK to be able to trade with” and that opportunities from new trade deals were “enormous” after Brexit.
Falconer said the EU “travels as fast as the slowest carriage in the train” and Britain can now “move faster and further with our trading partners”. But he also warned that Brexit would require a “change of mindset within the business community” to focus on markets outside the EU."

"What really makes me smile is that, far from 'taking back control...."

Perhaps we should!

Based on what we eat, one big supermarket chain reckons there are 80 million people living in the UK.

and A major, non-commercial agricultural institution reckoned at the time that there were 77 million people in the UK. Again, its reckoning was based on what was being eaten.

I wonder what the true figures are?
How many slid in on Labour's watch and did not leave?

Cue the usual nonsense from the usual remainiacs about the source not the content!

Thanks Jim, but the fact remains we have a big trade deficit with EU, but a nice trade surplus with US and with the rest of the world despite not being able to offer them free trade yet.

Luckily our non EU trade is already increasing while EU trade is shrinking as a proportion of our trade (OK David?)
