  1. If that's true, then I take back what I said.
  2. Who cares? Country of origin has to be stated on the wrapping, and we consumers don't have to buy it.
  3. All the Thais I know who are interested in politics are a long way beyond Prayut's daft outpourings.
  4. I'll answer for him. The real benefits will be seen when an economic downturn hits the EU hard. If we stay in, we're just another country, and the EU will follow policy that's best for the EU (and especially Germany). If we're out, we get to choose our own bespoke destiny.
  5. Wow! Just Wow! A few paltrey democratic changes?!? We're giving away our sovereignty. Nobody notices when everything is going hunky dory. But what about when the going gets tough? Economic and other policies will be set for the European (and especially German) greater good, and we won't be able to do a thing about it. The UK was in dire economic straits at the time we joined the EEC because of trades union militancy gone through the looking glass and hopelessly outdaded heavy industry. Thatcher dealt with that in her own way, which created a boom and bust economy. Nothing to do with the EEC. The problems with European agricultural policy have been resolved? Really??? Plenty of Europeans have voted against the EU. Their local powers-that-be just change the question slightly until the locals vote the 'right way', as per EU instructions. I think that it's infinitely better to be voting in and out the likes of Corbyn and Boris Johnson every few years than having a series of front men for the real European power, such as Juncker, imposed on us ad infinitum.
  6. Or keeping our options open.
  7. Well, obviously it's going to extend beyond March 2019. It wouldn't be a transitional period otherwise.
  8. What gets me is why you Europeans come on these threads to scaremonger, and belittle the UK. If everything's so stacked in the EU's favour, what's bothering you?
  9. Analysts agree that trade restrictions would be bad all round. Some have tried to quantify this, with varying results. The EU exports more to the UK than it imports.
  10. All those countries and more have expressed a strong desire to set up trade deals with the UK asap. The USA has even stated that it's going to fast track one.
  11. Firstly, the UK isn't running away, it's currently engaged in negotiations. Secondly, the EU is refusing to provide any details of it's financial demands. Thirdly, there will be no winners from restricted trade, though the EU as an entity will suffer most because of the balance of trade.
  12. Either side is not forthcoming on what commitments will be outstanding on Brexit. The following article may go someway to explain how and why these commitments will exist http://bruegel.org/2017/03/the-uks-brexit-bill-what-are-the-possible-liabilities/ It's worth bearing in mind that Breugel is run in Brussels by a German guy called Guntram Wolff, who joined it from the European Commission. It's also worth bearing in mind Breugel's main client is the EU.
  13. If you would read my comments very carefully you would not bother this community with useless phrases Ah, so you're taking the latter of my two options then. Troll alert! Troll alert!
  14. Was that the big issue in the 1983 GE?
  15. Could you please specify what these contractual obligations are, with specific details of the schedules that we have signed up to? Or, alternatively, could you stop spamming this thread?
