The EU is a shrinking, protectionist economy and those who think we will rejoin in a few years time are sadly deluded because it won't exist, we have taken the first brick out of the wall, others will follow, although all the top dogs in the EU say it will thrive without us, they are
just putting on a brave face, deep down they know this is the beginning of the end for a failed political project.

Won't be Italy because of the way a vote there would work There are regions in the south that couldn't function without what they get from the EU. My money is on Portugal as the right there are now really playing the Youth unemployment card and arent so embedded as some other countries are.

The real test will come when the Germans and the French finally wake up and smell the coffee and realise if funding for all the projects is to be maintained how much it will cost them once we.ve gone.

I shall be raising a glass to Corbyn-thank you Jeremy for ignoring your party and allowing the election to proceed in December and laying the ground for this.

I reckon Germany will be having a good look at the remaining members-they prop up the whole project now and that’s not sustainable

Yes, I was aware there`s a fireworks curfew at 11pm, so set a couple off just before, then set the rest to go off as near to 11pm as I could, to the sound of I Feel Free by Cream. I think with the breeze mine must`ve exploded somewhere over Brampton.

With not knowing the ins and outs of these things - will Britain leaving the EU have any bearing on international clearance regarding football players or has that sort of thing always been in our own hands anyhow, say for example if an African player wants to come over or even an Italian player.

Used to be if they had played for their national side or something.

Or could it be that it will easier now because we can make our own rules up?

It's ironic that when Crimea voted to go back to Russia we said it doesn't count as the whole of the Ukraine needs to vote on it.

Exactly and because of that Scotland didn't vote to remain in the EU because Scotland didn't get a vote, the UK did.

It's like saying Carlisle voted for brexit but Scotby didn't.

As the barbers and takeaways owners are from Turkey, which wasn’t a member of the EU, they should be open, as should the Chinese nail bars, for the same reason.

Have you ever heard such a load of bollocks

If tariffs are enacted they will be on every car manufacturer in both Britain and Europe and those manufacturers will simply pass the tariff cost on to the purchaser. Does that mean people across Europe will all stop buying cars? Does it hell as like !! They.ll have a little winge and buy it any way that is of course if they even notice once the finance companies have wrapped it all up in lease and PLP arrangements. So just how Nissan think it will be the end of their world God Knows

No. 10 twineing on that the EU offered a Canadian style FTA as an option back in 2017, and the EU are now saying it isn't an option. It isn't an option now based on the UK's red lines!!!

It should not come as a surprise now to the UK that level playing field guarantees are a requirement for a FTA with any country in Europe.

The EU has been explicit about this for three years.

Announced today that musicians from overseas will have to apply for a visa (£254) and have £1000 savings in the 90 days prior to applying before they're allowed to come.

I imagine that will rule out a good lump of the smaller artists that I tend to go and see. The handful I know personally don't have that kind of money. Wonder if it's across the board - orchestras, ballet troupes, actors or just smelly heavy metal bands.

If you're just going on Holiday and have a booked return date its not an issue.

I have less than 6 months left on mine and am waiting till the last minute to apply to ensure that I get a Blue one and i.ve been to Spain twice in that time and not had any problems.

I think the issues will come after Dec 31st if you then only have less than 6 months no doubt some will get stopped by a few foreign shits just to make a point.
