    Given our history its a bit more likely that the UK will be keener than the EU to jump in if someone suggests another war

    The propsal for some form of retention of our current rights still seems to be just about alive, this from David Davis to the parliamentary Brexit committee Jeremy Lefroy: Finally, Chairman, could I ask one more question? A few months ago, the European Parliament’s Mr Verhofstadt came forward with an idea of associate citizenship that might be available to British citizens after we leave the EU. This is quite attractive to a large number of British citizens, particularly young citizens, but not necessarily just the young. Is this an issue that has been discussed in detail or at all during the negotiations? I think it is something that a lot of people in the UK would like to hear more of. Mr Davis: No, it has not. Again, the issue of the future relationship versus current circumstances would pre-empt that. Yes, I remember it now you mention it. Very much, to be honest, it is something in the gift of the Union rather than us. We will see whether Mr Verhofstadt pursues it. I talk to him quite a lot. I quite like him, despite our differences. Q143 Jeremy Lefroy: Could I ask if you would raise it with Mr Verhofstadt next time? Mr Davis: I will point out your interest next time I see him. And this in parliament last week from the Independant; During a session of the House of Common on Thursday Mr Davis was asked by Tory backbencher Jeremy Lefroy whether he would consider giving British nationals the “right to go and work within the EU without a visa”. He added: “The idea of associate citizenship is something that was raised by the president of the European Parliament and others. Would he look seriously at this so that British workers - particularly perhaps younger British workers - would have the opportunity to go and work in the European Union without a visa certainly for a limited, if not extended, period of time?” Mr Davis replied: “Yes, we will look at these altogether - I have spoken to Guy Verhofstadt about this briefly, not at great length, already. “I will be interested to hear from him what he hears from what they are proposing, and of course we will listen to anything of this nature. “The aim of this exercise is to be good for Europe, good for Britain and that means good for the citizens of Europe and Britain and that’s what we’ll intend to do.” Reacting to Mr Davis's comments, Mr Verfhostadt said: "Great to see that the idea of associate EU citizenship for UK citizens who want it, is also gaining traction in the U.K. government. All the more reason to speed up the withdrawal talks so we can write a new, positive story together." There are currently 3 petitions to the European Parliament in support of these proposals please may I ask canalworlders to sign up, to strengthen the hand of those politicians willing to support them http://ec.europa.eu/citizens-initiative/public/initiatives/ongoing/details/2017/000001?lg=en http://ec.europa.eu/citizens-initiative/public/initiatives/open/details/2017/000003 http://ec.europa.eu/citizens-initiative/public/initiatives/open/details/2017/000005

  5. Brexit 2017

    You want us to leave the EU because it interferes too much in our country yet you want them to sanction the Spanish Govt?
  6. Brexit 2017

    The world and this country have moved on for better or worse there is no way we will be going back to how it was in the sixties (thank god) (and yes I was there)

    2 very similar islands close to each other in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius, independant, full employment average annual income 9000 dollars, Reunion part of France and hence EU average income 27000 dollars high unemployment. since we have high employment rates here perhaps the Reunion model is better?
  8. Welding to a Sprayfoamed Hull

    We have had welding done over sprayfoam, no problems. I would be more concerned about wooden battens, hidden wiring etc! I used to work on Belfast, is she in private ownership now?

    Where did I "moan" I was simply stating a fact millions of us already face higher prices due to brexit and the rest of you are starting to or will soon. However since you raise the subject of my feelings on the matter; Brexit was not caused by "world events out of our control" it was caused by the actions of peoplle like you who could not give a stuff about the effect on others.

    I am beginning to wonder if mrsmelly isn't a secret remainer; views like this are more likely to persuade those who are undecided that we might just be all better off not leaving or moving to an EEA model than other more reasoned arguments

    I thought previous posts had made it clear that we are cruising in Europe. If something cost 130 euros 18 months ago that would be converted to about £100 from my bank account now the same thing costs me £116. The point being that increases like this will be coming to the UK shortly if not already here.
  13. Brexit 2017

    Probably all true all I know is that when I pay my mooring, licence, or shop for groceries it all costs around 15% more than before the referendum and the latest forcasts are arounf 1 pound=1 euro by the end of the year.

    unfortunately so will the rest of us in fact already are the pound is sinking even further, delayed impact in the UK but here in Europe immediate
