Fascism is a fairly large wart

I agree. Looking back though most politicians that have come and gone in my lifetime were all warts.

Ah yes, the totally trustworthy, non biased, brexit supporting (haha) BBC. 

Zero credibility. 

Google it.

I'm proud of the BBC

 

It's very disloyal of you not to support such a thoroughly British institution!

Disloyal, interesting words.  I guess this is a wind up?

 

Back in 85, I witnessed  good old auntie beeb rent a car from central Joburg, drive to Soweto, PAY local youths to stone and burn it.

Then report it!  Riots in Soweto... <deleted>.

And then, go back to Avis Hillbrow, told them they were mugged.  

 

Avis were mugged.

 

But hey, the car was insured. 

Why let the truth get in the way of a good story?

I think  Sir Jimmy Saville and Rolf Harris would certainly agree with you, and many more. The BBC knew their antics and just turned a blind eye. Whatever credibility the beeb had it certainly doesn't have that now.

The likes of Johnners,  Trueman, the bearded wonder, and John Arlott would be turning in their grave.

It will be an economic shock and I dont think people understand this.  I'd guess a 5-10% hit on GDP over a few years.  And it will seem worse as the rest of the world will be posting higher growth as the global economy seems to be on the up again.  I doubt a trade deal can be reached beyond what Canada has, but there will be some fudge over financial services.

 

50/50 whether we lose Scotland or not, but perhaps that is going to happen anyway.  Some say good riddance.  Not me.

Understanding your opinion, fair call. 

However, I believe the fallout will be far worse for individual EU states than for the UK.

 

Can you imagine the impact of Spanish fishing fleets not being able to enter, or chased out of, British waters

on the day after an agreement or non agreement?

 

Or Mercedes, BMW, Peugeot, Citroen, Seat etc having a price hike in the UK?

 

World headlines, UK navy involvement etc?  EU uproar on our selfishness etc, etc,

 

Which way would the markets go on that day?

 

And which way would the EU go?

Ok, understand, you are trying to be grammatical?

Do you have an opinion on the subject, or just trying to be superior/up your comments?

I trust you are being ironic. BBC World is over populated with Australians. Excellent British reporters and presenters can be found on Aljazeera.

BMW and Mercedes buyers will shrug off a price hike - resssuringly expensive. PSA now own Vauxhall

 

I still think the Con Party AIM is to crash out and bugger the consequences!

Maybe you are right, maybe not, time will tell.

And if that is their aim, maybe they know something that is not out in the open yet.

Why else would they, bearing in mind they will be judged by the electorate, most probably in 5 years and seven weeks time?

They won't disclose the secret plan before this election

 

Four years out, everything will have changed. Corporation tax at 12%, labour and environmental protections ditched, massive inequality
