    Nigh on 50% of its entire manufacturing output is trade with the EU and 13% of its entire GDP is reliant on it.

    Leaving it for some hope and a prayer with assorted coons and wobble heads is pitiful and embarrassing.

    In monetary terms the UK is risking 200 billions on a spew of Farage rhetoric and BoJo piffle waffle which is why the is trading 20% less than it was before Brexit.

    French trade with the UK accounts for around EUR 3.6 billion and of the 36 million UK bound tourists, 3.6 million are French, the highest number of all nationalities bar the septics. Paris is the epicentre of France's industrial might and demographically it is the primate city generating the major thrust along the Anglo-French economic interface.

    Pakistan is a near bankrupt coon state reliant on debt and is a net beneficiary of British aid and little else of consequence.

    Put it on the map for you, bozo?

    Sausages Not sure where you get your facts of share of GDP though I will just post a couple of links for you.

    World GDP Ranking 2019 - StatisticsTimes.com

    List of Commonwealth of Nations countries by GDP (nominal) - Wikipedia
    As I'm sure you're aware many of the commonwealth countries are emerging markets.

    No it isn’t. The industry it does have is clouded by government ownership and protection, despite EU rules to the contrary.
    When will you wake up to the fact that the EU is a basket case, economically and politically.

    The Dutch are keen to leave now too.

    Why would 'the EU' forget something like that and why should they even care? You seem to be building your own little wall of 'poor Britain' and creating enemies for all kinds of things.

    Oh, the UK doesn't "have" the Commonwealth.

    Eh??? No, they're not. Unless you think that 14% of the population is 'the Dutch'.

    They're in an even worse position to live without the EU than the UK and they know it. Plus - they're not as xenophobic nor as jingoistic as Brits.

    No to Nexit: Dutch most likely to vote to stay in the EU


    The Dutch are among the least likely of all European nationals to support their country withdrawing from the EU, according to the spring Eurobarometer report, carried out on behalf of the European parliament. The report shows that 86% of the Dutch would vote in favour of remaining in the EU if there was a referendum tomorrow and just 8% would vote for a Nexit. Average support for the EU as a whole is 68%, with 14% backing withdrawal and 18% undecided.

    India is set to become 5th and France will retake its lead over the UK once the silly strikes cease and Brexit further drags the UK into recession. Italy isn't far behind but when Brexit morphs the UK into third country status then we'll see it dropping out of the G7 countries.

    Third country status rules out any access by the UK's services sector to 27 neighbouring states and 500 million consumers, corporate and otherwise. That is a seismic change to 47 years of frictionless trade which could cease in its entirety if the current Tory/Orc government policy is maintained.

    The UK's entire business and financial community is just beginning to comprehend the enormity of BoJo the Clown's stupidity. They had hoped it was a ploy by the ERG fuckwits but the reality is dawning, Goebbels Cummings has persuaded BoJo to adopt a scorched earth policy and to break the entire economic model.

    Of course the UK is to fall out of G7, it's gone rogue.

    This is funny: because the UK has been outperforming other EU member states we have been given a revised bill = 1 billion Euro more...



    (I don't know the full figures, but one presumes that the Germans mysteriously had 1 billion Euro reduced from their bill due to their poor economic performance...
    How do I post these pictures???

    Battyboob, since October 2016 the UK's economy has turned to ratshit compared to what preceded it and if no-deal is the outcome this year then that trajectory is set to continue. But did you not hear the man? The UK got a rebate in 2017/18 and didn't whinge about that, did it?
    Typical English money grubbers, moaning about paying it out but only too happy to suck it in, even though they get a budget rebate no other country has.

    I have to say that with Sinn Fein looking like the favourite to form a Govt in Ireland it looks promising that we could pass across NI for safe keeping. This keeps getting better.

    You EUSceptic weirdos do cling together somewhat, don't you. Michal Leahy is a right wing old tusker whose Freedom Party is an Irish Kipper outfit but without the lower class scummy support enjoyed by Farage. It seems his bid for power and a seat in the Dail is not meeting with much enthusiasm from the good burghers of Clare - he's not transferring well and it's likely today will return a result, but not for him.

    ^ The nationalists are doing very well in Ireland at the moment.





    You know, I've dipped my wick in more ladies from Donegal than any other group of ladies; nice ladies they are, one of my favourites. As you travel back to your homeland, and look around the town, be happy in the knowledge that I've been there, often...

    Nationalists, I said. I mean the folks who support national sovereignty over imperialism or federalism; locally held political power over a distant centralised power. Those groups are on the rise across Europe.

    Given there is no centralised European power exercising political primacy over any EU member state, one wonders just what the fuck you are dribbling on about, Battyboob.

    As Blair and Cameron both said, neither could recall a time when the EU overrode their decision making or that of Westminster in their respective careers.

    Try and keep your Kipper/ERG bilge out of the debate. Propaganda is a bore, and your continuing use of it is a monumental and puerile bore.

    I'm not familiar with the vagaries of the Irish proportional representation mechanisms, however as I understand it, Sinn Fein only fielded 42 candidates for the 160 seat parliament, and still managed to get the highest percentage of the overall vote. Seems that should another election be called, and they increase their candidate numbers, their mandate to form a government would only increase.
