  1. unfortunately, There's a slight flaw there. https://sg.news.yahoo.com/macron-visits-merkel-bid-salvage-eu-reform-plans-020938814.html?guccounter=1 If there was genuine unified EU effort to reform I'd be more understanding towards it. Sent from my SM-A500FU using Tapatalk
  2. Good post & assessment, agreed reference the rhetoric element. The biggest concern from all sides is change, uncertainty and what happens for the next generation, too much emotive mud slinging even after 2 years which shows in parts how bitter some elements of society are. I've always liked Europe and continue to do so, I visit and transit through regularly and that will not cease, however the political EU element spawned & imploded from the original EEC plan is simply not fit for purpose, it refuses to reform and yes Brexit , it'll be rocky in parts, changes pending however i highly doubt the UK will suffer an apocalypse.

  3. Total utter tosh, you claiming 17 million majority are lower class educated using it as fact? Yet further anti-Brexit nonsense. Sent from my SM-A500FU using Tapatalk
  4. All of which the above will soon cease, be renegotiated, personnel relocated and legally out of the EU March 2019, into transition period. Total worst case scenario, move to WTO rules which neither party wishes however is a possibility. Brussels has form on poor negotiations, Canada & Japan are both proof and evidence and they’ll leave it to the last minister despite the article 50 timeframe, which that itself is also flawed, by its own author no less. Uncharted ground, new challenges and not everyone will get what they want, the vital point is no longer legally bound to the EU. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. IMO anything being released from the EU in relation to the NI border is to be taken cautiously, sceptically and not considered viable. Take Brussel's out of the debate and equation & Dublin, Belfast and Westminster would be able to work a viable solution, it's the EU that are causing the dramas with demands, they want the border Eire,Belfast and Westminster don't. Similarly to the Spanish/Gibraltar situation, Brussels want everything in its own favour, which explains rejection every UK proposal submitted to date, they're autocratic in every sense. Brussel's thrives on Dominance and Authority mindset and despises being challenged at any level. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Oh dear me, the British FS and another over hyped media tosh release and Brexit hate remainers are at it again. Boris is controversial, speaks out and occasionally pi$$es people off, even within his own Government. Good for him, Brexit is a serious matter, passionate to ensure PMTM is held accountable to her commitment and word and deliver Brexit to the electorate. I'm no fan of him, however Trump, Farage et al have done more and better than countless nameless idiots I could mention that stuck to the status quo. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. That's the UK's overall aim & goal. Unfortunately, the EU are using the Brexit talks as a political tool to punish and deter other MS rather than come to a collective agreement, Galileo, NI border etc etc. UK under EU rules classes as 3rd country. Only recently the EU claims it doesn't have to comply with its own GDPR criteria, article evidence available on MSN. Brussels hypocrisy at its finest, issue a policy but don't abide or follow it yourself. The EU fears challenges at any level, it's answer is to warn, threat & make it very difficult to go independent, thankfully UK isn't part of the Euro too. Excuse the long winded version of a short reply. Sent from my SM-A500FU using Tapatalk
  8. HMG refusing to act? Strangely bizarre & incorrect...... Referendum result=HoC accepted result. Article 50 activated, delivered to Brussels. HoC EU repeal bill voted & approved. HMG currently involved with negotiations. UK legally leaves EU cop March 2019. No ranting involved, Enjoy your day ;-) Sent from my SM-A500FU using Tapatalk
  9. Ok, in short it's Brexit baiting narrowing the focus and attempting to blame non indegious. Highly probably or simply your viewpoint? Sent from my SM-A500FU using Tapatalk
  10. Why is it the term foreigners rather than actual names is used, other than to stereotype? Also, Don't get strangely quiet confused with monitoring a thread without necessarily contributing. Sent from my SM-A500FU using Tapatalk
  11. I see that nice (very loosely used) Hungarian born American billionaire is reattempting to interfere with another countries democracy. Funding & backing a campaign for a 2nd referendum, ignoring the 17million who decided the UK must change course. Soro's......keep your unwanted snib out of the UK's affairs.

  12. The GPS situation is an interesting issue, the EU under its policies want to treat the UK as a 3rd country. Yet, they also need UK specialist, suppliers and equally important access to some (UK overseas) ground stations. Hammond (in the Times) has stated if the EU exclude UK from Galileo then negotiations will reopen on some vital aspects, also several EU countries are not happy at Brussels attitude and negotiating approach. Lastly, even though it'll take £2-5Bn the UK is quite capable of issuing a rival to Galileo, just because Brussels wants everything it's own way. Sent from my SM-A500FU using Tapatalk
  13. Various, your have to narrow the focus of the question. Plenty of premium UK based Brands. Sent from my SM-T555 using Tapatalk
  14. I'm not sure holding fast is what everyone outside Brussels is tangibly seeing, what is noticeable is warnings, threats and poor negotiations for Brussels. HMG starting from scratch obviously not helpful however getting this right once is vital. PMTM is known as the submarine for her home office days and this time she's unable to duck and hide for cover, it's time the UK politicians work for the electorate, be fully accountable and not allowing EU to over-rule. Putting it bluntly, Brussels is fully aware and livid its losing authourity over Westminster, wants UK to ignore all the red lines, and carry on as boss. I fully agree Brussels wants to make Brexit as painful as possible, primarily to deter others. Sent from my SM-T555 using Tapatalk
  15. I fully concur reference simply being bystanders however I unable to criticise HMG as I like many I not privy to "all" the facts. Also, walking away 'before' all options, consultations et al are considered exploited would also parliament not doing their job,they have to be seen tangibly to prove everything was proposed, submitted, tried and simply ignored & rejected, that's not negotiations that's pure ignorance, they are also accountable for all actions by the electorate. Lastly, IMO the referendum was right thing for the UK, I respects others will disagree however post Brexit vote proves how incompetent Brussels are, just ask the V4 & most recently Italy too.
