Not a clue, but whomever it is is probably an idiot. Some of those laws are pretty decent pieces of legislation. Some aren’t/weren’t (and a decent chunk of it enacted during a Labour government :whistle: )

But i’ll bet you haven’t got a clue what they actually say or do beyond the bleurb. So my question is; which Facebook group are you getting all this from?

And how is it that you (they) can name all those pieces of legislation to make a point, but can’t name a single bad EU law forced upon this country and say how it affects or has affected your life? Because I’m quite sure if you(they) had found some, you’d be preaching it as loud as you could (and they do exist).


Tommy, I wish you'd take matters more seriously instead of being so damn flippant all the time! :wink:

Senior politicians being accused of lying used to be a big story. Now after Brexit and Trump they can survive without resigning it seems.

Of course, at an election, the electorate can choose to throw them out of power.

Very true, but if we throw the present lot out in December we get Corbin as PM! :shock:

Thank God our police are not routinely armed or somebody would be selling a yellow mini, slightly holed.

If this is true we certainly have an awful lot of surplus. Has this massive loss of revenue affected you adversely so far? What about Greece, Spain, Italy even? Are yo saying they could be much much much worserer off? :shock:

it's all gone a bit quiet while we wait for (hopefully) silence from Big Ben on the 31st. I hope that anti protestors are also allowed to make their feelings known on the day although that could get a bit ugly if it's too near to Fromage's display also planned.

I'll be on a train trying to ignore all of it, a complete nothing day as far as I'm concerned nothing to celebrate as it's a start of a painful process that will likely eventually leave us with a useless relationship with our biggest customer the EU if at all

Personally, I'm not too exited about partying or Big Ben clanging, bonging or whatever it is. I can't be all that triumphal about it all. I voted leave, but as others have pointed out, with all taken into consideration, there isn't much to celebrate and as Zoom has pointed out, I might say with a tinge of hopeful expectation, there is almost certain to be a bunch of gate crashers at the bash.
This is to be expected no matter what, as many on the pro-EU membership side have tirelessly pointed out, the margin in the vote was narrow. Further, we don't know how things are going to pan out but wishing for the worst constantly can have a genuinely harmful impact. Being determined to fail is never advisable if its what you honestly want to avoid.

I'll expect some opprobrium from line five down.

i think there will be pro-EU supporters who will show up to the city. as you say it was a narrow margin and they are as within their rights to protest (peacefully) as the brexit supporters are to have a party. it will kick off no doubt, but i wonder who will kick off first.
i don't give two "Kris Kris Tofferson!" about whether big ben bongs or not, but the fuss over whether a bell should sound or not is ridiculous. its almost like its being stirred to hide the fact that we still have no plan for what happens after...

i'm meant to be going to a gig in london that night so hopefully, the brexit party will be as big as the brexit march so i can still get a train

It is now the businesses own fault if they aren’t ready for Brexit.

After all, they’ve had since 2016 to prepare for the changes...

... except to date no one has a clue what change that need to make.....

Worryingly idiotic words from our chancelllor.....

it does beggar belief! looks like we are squaring up for A WTO exit with disasterous consequences (in which case why spend £39bn?) . I'm not sure how the Canada deal works but are they required to take EU regulations for their exports to the EU?
