re: Grrrr..Brexit.

I suspect the exit is not going to make a great deal of difference to any of Britains relationships with European countries. There will be the odd problem with the French but I think that the European countries are now firmly fixed into the habit of talking through their problems without turning them into intractable crisis and will continue to do so.


As we say in this part of the world, she'll be right mate.

re: Grrrr..Brexit.

So
Reality.

Scotland wanted the EU balance in its dealing with England. I reckon they will now have another vote to leave Great Britain, and leave.

Wales might do the same.

Cameron resigned.

Another general election this year.

Japanese car manufacturers in the UK will have to comply with a whole new set of requirements outside of the EU rules....

exit the manufacturers.

Tax and duty goes on European goods and ours for export...

prices rise 30%

short term 2-6 years... everything will be bolloxed in real terms.

VAT might go up.

I TOTALLY understand the desire to be independent. Until time was spent looking at the issue dispassionately, I was a 'leave'.

My business is based in Spain now... I will need to become a permanent resident and decide where to register the business. It will become murky...

you could just buy an eu registered yacht,and sign yourself on as crew,and work illegally as we did in the "not so old days" in spain and Cyprus,perhaps the immigration will turn a blind eye as they did in the old days if you kept your nose clean

re: Grrrr..Brexit.

Britain did not sign up to Schengen originally but that doesn't mean that they will be treated like foreigners if they actually do exit the EU. when Shengen was first set up, foreign countries were invited to make special agreements. Several did including New Zealand. I would expect, because of the massive number of expats in the EU as well as Bits who own land there, the EU will make a special agreement to ensure that the Brits continue to spend money there.

that is also a good reason for the 3 million uk expats to sell up and return to the uk motherland,since they can no longer afford to live in Europe on meagre pensions having to pay for health care,visas ,devalued pound etc.

question is where are we going to put the influx of UK refugees from Europe in the uk as the situation worsens.

Sometimes I wonder if its not just an evil plan....

re: Grrrr..Brexit.

When administrators start setting rules and regulations about the curvature of eligible cucumbers one knows there is something rotten.
And it's not the cucumbers which are rotten.
Europe lacks unity to be strong and uniform. Victory for Trump and Putin. Amen.

re: Grrrr..Brexit.

Remember this is the same nation that voted for "Boaty McBoatface". Churchill said the best argument against democracy is a five minute chat with the average voter.

Amen.
Of course its all tosh. They do it because they can and because member stated dont tell them that it is tosh...

Except the Spanish when they were told it had to be a fresh sealed bottle of Olive oil on the table in restaurants for every new customer..

I digress.

Being independent is always the best course. However 43 years of entanglement is a lot to undo... and a lot to lose...
