  1. Brexit 2017

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
  2. Brexit 2017

    I am afraid you have completely missed the point. It is not that the Greek economy is anything like ours that is the issue, ours is clearly much bigger. It is the point that being in the single currency, means that you cannot take monetary steps to adjust your economy accordingly if the need arises.

    That's more like it, no room for faint hearts. Ask the Greeks
  5. Repayment of Debt

    If I could just correct you. Assuming the antiquities you are referring are the Elgin Marbles, then both your stolen and borrowed descriptions are incorrect. The Marbles are legally owned by the British Museum. Even if not referring to the Marbles I doubt the British Museum is holding stolen goods.
  6. Brexit 2017

    Nothing in my post in anyway told you how you should behave, or imply that you are a traitor or saboteur, so no I didn't see what you did there. I simply stated an opinion which contradicts yours, and you could if you wished discuss further, by stating why you think a Norway style option would be beneficial. I have already indicated why I think it isn't.
  7. Brexit 2017

    I don't understand why anyone would want a deal based on the Norway model. This is effectively staying in and complying with all the rules, but giving up having a vote whilst still paying shed loads of money. It has to be the worst outcome. As a committed leaver, if the only options were, Norway or stay in and cancel Brexit, I would choose the latter.
  8. Brexit 2017

    Well you answered your own point, the Common Market we voted for, if you are old enough and in my mid 50s I am not, is not what we ended up with. As for Brexit not ending where we expect, you don't know that because, we have not had it yet. You don't even know what the deal will be yet and nor will anyone until the day before exit probably.
  9. Brexit 2017

    There in lays the problem. Instead of only having to fight a battle on one front with the eu, thereby devoting all energy into winning the best outcome for the country, the government is having to also fight with itself, the opposition and a ragbag of malcontents who won't accept the democratic decision. The end result will be that the eu will see a divided and weak response and which will strengthen their resolve into screwing us for everything they can get. So going on from here, people may consider that brexiteers damaged the country on June 23rd but that was then, it is the remainers who are inflicting damage on the country now.
  10. Brexit 2017

    Don't worry, it will all be ok.
  11. Brexit 2017

    Well I think we will just have to agree to differ. Far from preventing threats, I believe the eu will actually be the cause of conflict in the future, if it continues on its current path, assuming it does not collapse first, which is hopefully a distinct possibility.
  12. Brexit 2017

    You do need to calm down and understand the point being made. It was not that long ago we were told that the was absolutely no plan for an eu army, now there is. Everything the eu does is gradual and by slight of hand. That's why the common market we joined, is now a union that makes some of our laws, and wants to increase its powers further. Why you think what I have stated is rubbish, when history proves YOU wrong defeats me. I can only assume you are so blinded to the obvious, that no matter what the eu does, cannot in your mind be wrong. The fact that a proposal now is not achievable in the short term, is not where the final position will be, in say five or ten years from now. Look to history and it may open your eyes.
  13. Brexit 2017

    You really should read up on what this organisation you like so much really wants to do. Do your own research but the source for your info is Guy Verhofstadt and the eu integrated military roadmap. I accept that what it entails at this point is not achievable as member states would resist it. But this is how the eu works. It is in it for the long run. It wasn't that long ago we were being told there is no plan for an eu army. Well that was a lie wasn't it. The roadmap mentions deployment of armed forces to protect the eu from internal and external threats without the authorisation of individual states. So, in the event of some troublesome population resisting eu directives it is perfectly feasible that this force could be used to suppress dissent. The eu has passed a regulation instructing member states to recognise Kosovo. At the moment the five are not holding up the eu progression. At the point they do, they will be brought to heel. Spain will use Gibraltar whatever May says. The only thing that has changed is, any suggestion by Spain of shared or dual sovereignty is dead in the water, if it wasn't already.
  14. Brexit 2017

    Agreed, there is no chance Spain will ever get their grubby little mitts on Gibraltar now, even their so called joint sovereignty is off the table, if ever it was on. Yes I do. The hypocrisy of the eu is astounding. Spain wants to be a member we don't. The reason the eu won't condemn Spain is because they want to be able to deploy armed force, against their citizens, if their citizens ever resist eu rule in the future. As for the hypocrisy, how is it the eu, and many individual members recognise UDI claimed by Kosovo, which I believe occurred against the wishes of the ruling state, Serbia, but will not condemn Spain when Catalonia seeks the same type of self rule.
  15. interest rate rise forcast

    The reason you should get a risk free return on your savings is because banks don't actually have their own money, it is yours mine and every other savers. If they did not pay a return there is no reason whatsoever to place your money with them. As for house prices, these have gone up due to supply and demand and not simply at the inflation rate. This is the reason the value is so much more. It's not an obscenity, it is simple market forces.
