That will be the 1 in 5 Brexit stockpiling  ;D

I listened to Nigel Lawson speaking on the wireless yesterday. He said that Hammond is a clueless waste of space who is way out of his depth as Chancellor.
He then spoke about a" no deal Brexit" (actually a false label), and said that it was nothing to be afraid of. It wouldnt cause any great problems at all, but would actually present great opportunities for the UK.
Anyone who claimed different either does so to perpetuate project fear, or hasnt got a clue what they are talking about.  :)

I for one can see immediate issues with import/export for Europe with no deal, the mere Trade Tariff overhead would impact, the uncertainty of sending experts to the mainland to support in a working environment, the potential loss of willing low cost labour (unlike the unwilling residential labour).

I could state that those who think that a no deal Brexit wont hurt have never been exposed to the real world operations of industry (Nigel Lawson being a great example!)

here is a real life example of a willing Spanish worker aged 55. hasn't had a proper job for ten years. Could easily get one by going to England as many of her friends have but how does that work for her family. Her friends go to the Uk and can get a job at the drop of a hat despite your unemployment ONLY being 4% She is currently on a training scheme to be a lawyers assistant but today has the choice of having her meagre benefits docked if she does not go to a job interview which she won't get OR take the course exam and still not be able to get work afterwards. After ten years unemployment is still dire here in Spain. You do not see any young people anymore as they are working abroad or seasonally in the tourist trade on the Costas. So post Brexit there will still be plenty of low cost labour just might not be possible to employ it.

No one would say that there wouldn't be short term operating issues. Life goes on. Good companies and Business secretaries would adapt. That is what all good companies do. I could give you loads of examples but car industry will suffice. Diesel and petrol pollute so they stop making them and go electric

You are right about the EU politicians making damned sure that the leaving for any member state would be impossible or at best hard.. Lets just rollover and rejoin with our tails between our legs and stand in the corner for the next ten years with a dunces cap on.

We are a nation of spineless people frightened of their own shadows. We deserve to be a subset of the great Euro project paying for the East of Europe to be developed so they can buy German products.

In a way I hope we do remain ( not that a single Remainer has ever said under what terms - they dont care) we will review how it worked out every ten years. I wonder how loud we will whinge when we are outvoted on the majority vote time after time. Still so long as we are back in the nest that is all that matters.

Whatever happens great damage has been done to the country which will take decades to recover from. The Spineless idiots across all the parties in Parliament share a huge responsibility for that especially Theresa May .

40 years ago we managed to board a plane going to Germany from Corfu due to lax airport procedures - we actually asked which plane for Birmingham. Cabin crew rightly told us to leave the plane. We then spotted the correct plane at about the same time as a group of gun toting cops spotted us.

Im with Entwood on this. Surely the RAF would have been ultimately scrambled as an unidentifiedvaircraft entered British airspace without a flight plan? The media just love a funny story especially when were are all sodden with the B word.

Battery so dead this morning that my dad couldnt even open it . Called breakdown recovery and guy said take it for a run.

Going to dealer tomorrow as he hasnt been using lights, heated seat, heated wheel, radio even to save electric. I think not fit for purpose. The manual should say dont use if your journeys are less than five miles.

No Lizzie, I wasn't asking anyone who voted a particular way to explain their voting. Just making an observation that the reasons why people voted remain were never analysed to death like the reasons leave was.

Good point about the losses in the Civil War.  maybe that is the solution..... have a war.  :-[ There hasn't been one for about a year. Minister for War Dept Michael Gove anyone.

One thing that has struck me is the reasons why people voted leave have been analysed to death e.g. no more immigrants, took in by the bus, no control.

I do believe I have never once seen anyone examine the reasons why people voted remain. I would guess inertia ( lack of desire for change) would have been a big factor. As would I like going on holiday to Europe. They are our trading partners. My nephew voted remain as he didnt want me to be booted out of Spain. Forgot the big one- world would end if we leave.

On both sides there were millions of voters voting badly,

What will probably happen is the new leader will agree a temporary stay in Europe of ten years on the understanding that the EU reforms including not becoming more federal plus a legally binding referendum to be held in ten years time to take in those reforms. Bar will be set at 51%. Everyone must vote after a campaign setting out both sides lasting just two weeks.

Ballot paper would read:

You have seen what did or didnt happen since 2019 , ten years ago.

Do you wish to lose your identity and control and pay more but not have to think about it?

Do you wish to get out of the EU using the Plan detailed in the campaign and control your own destiny but still remain friends?

How about Sir Keir Starmer?

I always said the labour party ought to have had the other Milliband. " More electable".

I wonder how new political parties and the break up of the Tories would change anything?

Surely Britain would just end up with no party with a majority .
