    You of course Herr Fling can always rely on the free range scabies infested food that sits outside your house.

    obviously you never had an Econ 101 course in college, or maybe you didn't even go to college

    easy mistake to make when you don't know shit from college

    that said, I have to agree that economics is irrelevant, we just all want you to FUCK OFF for good

    Which part of my post don't you agree with, Butters?

    1. The rate of exchange can go up.
    2. The rate of exchange can go down.
    3. Past exchange rates are not a guide to future exchange rates.
    4. You will still be able to spend a pound in a pound shop so long as the pound shop is still in business.

    Brexit: Theresa May says MPs must hold their nerve
    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-47206286

    Brexit talks are at a "crucial stage", Theresa May will tell MPs later when she updates them on the negotiations.

    The PM will say "we now all need to hold our nerve" to get the changes needed to get her Brexit deal through Parliament by the 29 March deadline.

    She has been trying to secure changes to the backstop arrangement - the "insurance" policy to avoid a return to border checks on the island of Ireland.

    The EU has reiterated it will not renegotiate the withdrawal agreement.

    Mrs May is continuing to seek backing for her deal. She will tell Parliament she still believes it is possible to get a deal that MPs can support.

    "By getting the changes we need to the backstop; by protecting and enhancing workers' rights and environmental protections; and by enhancing the role of Parliament in the next phase of negotiations I believe we can reach a deal that this House can support," she will say.

    Lob, after Brexit and the expiry of any transitional arrangements, a third country Brit coon, without any legacy residence rights, will be limited to a maximum visit of 90 days in any 6 month period with a prohibition on employment, access to services and the curtailment of any economic activity that does not fall within the definition of a business visitor.

    When the Tory nazis force EU citizens to complete landing cards and to queue up for their mandatory interview as to intentions which will inevitably lead to many refusals of admission, then one will see any goodwill that might still be retained by the EU soon evaporating fairly quickly ensuring that doubtful Brits will be refused entry in greater numbers.

    Folk with criminal records will not be guaranteed entry depending on the type and age of their convictions and certainly drunken lower end scum will find detention and removal more of a feature of their summer holidays.

    In many ways Europe will now be able to enjoy a rather more civilised ambiance in their resorts with this transition that will see the mostly English dross excluded.

    Every cloud, as they say.

    Those yellow vest protests this last weekend that the MSM seems to be ignoring for some reason had a lot more anti EU sentiment than previous weeks, France will be following the UK out.

    you are day dreaming again, and they are quite a few communists in these yellow vests, so by your logic we should have Stalin back in power in a few years

    not saying it couldn't be happening, either way, Stalin or a new Facist Regime by RN

    The only point I'm trying to make is that despite your pro EU granny grabbing president, the majority of French people are not pro EU and if you were given a referendum you would vote leave too.

    The sclerotic, desiccated bitch May is hoping to postpone any further Commons vote until the end of the month in the hope that the delay will panic them into support. It's a crude manoeuvre and in truth she has no other gambit left to her except the delusional hope the EU will save her skinny, bony old ass because they are bored shitless with all this English whining and grovelling, begging and tedious pleading for help.

    At this rate the will be 38-39 baht.

    All those Thai wives in Blighty sending money back home will be bitching like mad, and all those blue collar lumpen whoremongering Brits of the lower end will be cancelling their shagfest holidays.

    Poor old Bumbumboy will be back to his ten day, all-inclusive, Benidorm slappery tit-and-tat drinkfest summer convention.

    lom, it is a tenet of the Brexit ideology that the EU is a doomed enterprise and by leaving it now the British will somehow escape an imagined cataclysmic event that would have overcome them if Britain had remained.
    Insane of course but it's all part of their mania and in order to reinforce their delusions they look for signs that the collapse is imminent. The current gilet jaune nonsense is but one example.
    In truth not even the Greeks were that fucking stupid to leave but what can one say, Brexiteers are perhaps the dumbest sect in the entire history of weird political cults.

    1,2,4 are correct but are the usual strawman reply from a Brexiteer in denial, fumbling to explain away Brexit causing the weakest pound in 40 years.

    While 3. is 100% utter nonsense.

    But the thing is, and one Brexit numpties simply cannot bring themselves to accept lest their latent delusions of resurrecting the halcyon days of Queen and Empire are deflated like the exhalation of slow, wet, long, low dribbling farts they so resemble, the Italians have a much greater manufacturing base than the somewhat ineffectual Brits whose output is less than the Italians in terms of value per annum.
    Talk about legacy prejudice but in time the Spanish will exceed the Brits too.

    Incidentally, I don't think Neverna understands what a trend might be.

    No tats on me and never been to Benidorm, what's it like?

    Brits don't need to fly to Thailand if want a shagfest holiday when E Europe will suffice.

    I'm struggling to see a negative with you being one of those excluded.. My only surprise, although it may have happened to you already is; Why TF no one has kicked the living shit out of your sorry arse - I'd pay a premium to jump that queue.

    According to Neverna, if you are looking for a stable currency to shelter your money, it doesn't matter if it's Zimbabwean dollars or Swiss francs...it's all a crap shoot.

    oh for gods sake man, do put a sock in it.

    one could become suicidal reading the non stop torrent of fearmongering pessimistic drivel that you have been belching out for the past three years.

    there will be a huge difference between the dystopian delusions that inhabit your apocalyptic nightmares and fuel your malevolent thoughts and the actuality of the situation after brexit.

    most micks that i know are cheerful folks of an optimistic bent.

    You really are an idiot, choosing to stick with an out of date forecast rather than revised final figures. Yet you still can't figure out why most think are even thicker than simple Sybil.

    It's worse than banging your head against a brick wall trying to make a retard like you even understand basic things. You've been given the real figures for 2018. Yet you're still obsessed with your bullshit figures and seemingly unable to admit they are bullshit.
