Leaving major constitutional change in the hands of the most extreme-right authoritarian government since Victoria sat on the throne as Empress...I mean, some of us have been trying to warn of this since before the referendum, but that was project fear and we were talking down the country.

This country will be a full dictatorship before 2025. It’s happening.

We’ve spent so long in a state of peace that we’ve forgotten what war is.

I've read that Englanders are about to learn what it's like to be ruled over by the British. Not much different here where millions of additional americans are forced into the streets and homelessness thru no fault of their own, but instead thru draconian brinkmanship of our gov't's handling of their own plandemic. Those newly homeless folks too are about to learn what it's like to live under neo liberal american rule.

Peter North for EU Referendum wrote:What certainly has not come over is that Brussels has secreted into the system a complex and interesting treaty, one full of subtleties which is a long way from the basic "skinny treaty" that many of us originally expected.

It is one, also, which keeps the UK closer to the EU globally-based trading system than anyone could possibly have imagined at the outset of negotiations. It is one of considerable depth which creates a framework for a relationship which, if explored by people of far more diligence than Johnson and his cronies, could eventually be turned into a useful working agreement, albeit at savage cost to the UK in the interim.
...
To enable that trade, and much else, requires a working framework, which is set out in the first chapter of the treaty. One of the greatest misnomers of this modern world is the term "free trade". We have managed trade. The greater the degree of state involvement, the more freely goods (and services) flow.

In creating a framework, the first thing of this treaty that must be understood is that it is not the end of a process, but the start – where detailed sectoral negotiations will be conducted over term, to knock the basic agreement into some sort of shape which will enable the UK to re-establish a functioning relationship with the EU.


I've read that this Brexit deal will cost England's exportation of services a far bigger blow than your export of goods, which understandably is much less in value, but according to Richard above seems to be saying that down the road with what the E.U. has posited in the Brexit document might pull England out of the fire at some point? Care to comment, Daz, as it seems yer the last of the Brits posting in this forum?

No-one fully knows what's in this agreement yet because no-one's had a chance to read it. Lawyers are even now scrambling to make sense of it and they do this full time.

It satisfies no-one. It promises alignment with EU standards but no say over what those standards are, has no protection at all for services which make up the bulk of exports and imposes massive non-tariff trade barriers. It's going to make everything far worse than it was.

I have some direct knowledge of the last of these as I'm working on the Revenue and Customs system that handles the import and export declarations and even though we are going to deliver everything required on time, it isn't going to be enough. We expect to process two million declarations in the first month of 2021 and each of those declarations will potentially have actions and checks attached to them. These are millions of tasks that under EU membership were simply unneccessary. People will need to be paid to perform these tasks and each one will take up time, space and money.

Britain has fucked itself and I don't blame the rest of the world for smirking. Unfortunately, people will die for an ideology, of hunger, untreated disease, drowining in refugee boats, criminal homicide and manslaughter, which is something we had imagined that after two world wars, a Nazi holocaust and 70 years of Stalinist dictatorship we would never see again in Europe.

Anyone who still thinks Brexit controlled by a far-right authoritarian Tory government was a good idea can go and fuck themselves.

What did you stand to gain from the EU membership?
I never saw any benefits. It was all liabilities.

We have purchased tantalum from a company in Trent on Stoke for at least a dozen years, and it would be helpful if you guys could make it easier and less expensive for us to simply send the materials directly to our clients in France instead of the current process of importing it here to the USA and into our warehouse, relabeling it, and sending it back out to France. Also please add all of the EU countries to the request. Thanks man!

I told you 6 months ago a mask wouldn't stop a virus. Now that masks are mandatory we're setting new records everyday for new positive cases and deaths. Care to change your story or do you want to continue to look like an idiot?
