    I never said that at all. That's something else you have made up or inferred.

    It's pointless entering a discussion with Foo, he keeps altering your comments to suit whatever point he's trying to make...which is invariably nonsense.

    Yep. His next trick usually involves quoting a post one has made that he thinks "proves" he is right but actually proves nothing of the kind. You have to laugh.

    Britain is fortunate in that respect, not needing to devalue since it happens anyway as a result of our actions. Would be nice for the to double up, but probably won't in our time.

    Tax, my dear tyke, what on earth are you babbling on about? What fear mongering? What scare tactics have I employed? I merely stated the truth of the matter and highlighted the immigration regime practised by the EU member states in relation to third countries not on their common list of visa nationals. After Brexit, Brits will be a third country albeit one that is not required to obtain a visa before entering the EU. You are limited therefore to stays of no more than 90 days in any 6 month period. Seeking entry for any purpose other than to visit will require a visa however. All passengers seeking entry into the EU through any gateway port will be required to submit advanced passenger information. This information will be cross referenced with an intra-EU/UK database containing records of those with previous criminal convictions and those recorded as being persons of interest.
    Depending on policy, those with previous convictions may be excluded.
    As I said, British people will be treated the same as any other third country coon.

    Enjoy it! Quite fitting really, given the imminent collapse of the economy, the country will be a tinpot, cheapo, tat destination for the richer Europeans to play in so it is only right the Brits will be treated like any other third country skivvy race scubas, as, say the Turks, the Moroccans and the Gyppos.

    Har, har.

    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.
    I think you will find that all those stories of “cataclysmic” events predicted at the time of the vote, have already passed by largely unnoticed. That includes you ridiculous assertion of “parity” with the US$. Businesses have already factored in the predicted losses, and the changes needed to move ahead in the future. These issues are no where near as bad as pundits originally suggested.

    The currency has been devalued by about 13% so far. Another 7-10 % will just make us a more attractive trading option.

    There will be problems after Brexit, but that has nothing to do with the countries ability to deal with them, or even turn them to the UK advantage.

    Plebs like the gent praying for an apocalypse to salve his declining worth, are likely to be bitterly disappointed. Imagine being so angry, and not even being close to correct in your prediction of Armageddon.

    Its amusing that this Pikey, who's country is a tax pariah and does a significant proportion of their trade with the UK finds Brexit such a hoot - once the UK is free to set its VAT rates and decides to race the emerald Isle in business taxation rates we'll see how amused their Slovak President is and how long before that wanker finds himself cap in hand outside number 10 - got a short memory over how Ireland fared during the financial crisis, watch this space.... It may then be an opportune time to unite Ireland and that thread I look forward to

    I've booked for Europe after Brexit and no visa is required just 6 months validity on ones passport.

    More scaremongering by remoaners


    In fact the deal was quite agreeable, the travelling British tourist it seems is a desired hot property.

    The good old days are coming back, the pound and the British tourist are popular again.

    So if a given currency devalues by 10% on Monday, down by another 15% on Tuesday, another 8% down on Wednesday ...you should still buy on Thursday because: "Past exchange rates are not a guide to future exchange rates."

    The UK has a trade deficit, importing more than it exports. A devaluation of the pound makes imports more expensive, which can cause problems especially with assembled products, where individual components are imported.

    Are you totally retarded or is it simply a case of a cognitive disturbance arising from perhaps a sneeze that dislodged a synaptic junction?

    There was never a question of British nationals requiring pre-clearance in the form of an entry clearance or visa in order to board a flight to an EU destination. The point is, whereas you could pretty much venture to any of the 27 countries and do what you like depending on your fancy without restriction, you now can only stay for a maximum period of 90 days in any 6 month period, a restriction applied to Americans, Mexicans, Canadians, Brazilians, Japs, Koreans and Malaysians. So, whereas you were a European before, now you are merely another wog, nignog, Septic, spic or slant-eyed git.

    Now because you are an idiot Brit without a functioning brain, whereas before you could board a flight and go to your house in Minorca for five months of the year, now you can't. You is fucked. Same same if you wanted to spend time in your gite in the Dordogne for six months between April and November, or you wanted to spend seven months in Puglia in your villa, or a long winter in Moraira avoiding the northern winter, you fucking can't unless you apply for a fucking visa, you gormless dull-brained English twat.

    But because you are Brexit idiot you didn't realise this was a consequence of your stupid vote.

    In European terms, you are a nigger now.

    You fucking idiot, you bought a fucking BVP passport for the EU only and the most you could bring back before tariff harmonisation was a limit of two bottles and 200 fucking fags.

    Under the EU with the SM and CU you could bring back a thousand fucking bottles at 2 a pop if you wanted.

    Are you going fucking senile or what now?

    Tax and seeking going at it has to be one of the best things on the board. Its like watching Quentin Crisp arguing with his image in a mirror.

    There is no point in discussing anything with Brexiteers, they are truly the stupidest species to have ever emerged from the sludgy depths of British marginal politics since Mosley's blackshirts.

    In the days I'm talking about I could barely afford the duty free quota once I'd paid travel costs. So I was happy with my lot.

    Throwing insults!

    It's because of you tax dodging baby boomers that the working tax payers have had to vote Brexit and pull the UK and the EU out of the shit.

    Fasten your seat belts, it's gonna be a long flight.
    Perhaps a casualty in all this will be Wingman and yourself pimping your battys along beach road in the early hours for a bag of mama noodles.
