    You really aren't very good at this, are you?

    You clearly have absorbed what stock phrases you could from the potpourri of Brexit rhetoric spewed out by whoever and are merely regurgitating them in little more than a stream of deranged consciousness unhampered by any notion of literary style or indeed coherence.

    The USSR was doomed to failure because it traded within its own orbit and subsidised inefficiency by leeching off satellite states but the rotten edifice collapsed when expenditure on defence amounted to 40% of GDP.

    The EU is not a single entity that exists by absorbing sustenance from the periphery into its centre through some form of economic osmosis, you dribbling, raddled old buffoon, it's an association of member states that have joined a socio-economic club for reasons of economic betterment that has successfully grown over five decades into the world's largest, wealthiest trading bloc sustained by a constitution that upholds its principles of equality, fairness and social cohesion through the democratic process founded on a rule of law that applies equally to all.

    Of course there are stresses and strains, it's fucking human, but its worth is undeniable to the majority within its 27 member states who realise to be part of the EU is to be in the vanguard of decency in the modern world.

    Brexitania, soon to be but Engerlandia, is just a rump of stupidity, a colony of the lumpen to be exploited by carpetbagging, tax-evading corporate shills and will become the bargain basement destination for Europeans who want to slum it and to spend their pennies on cheap tat, cheap booze and watch football.

    So you'll be refusing your blue passport on principle of course.

    Well oh well, so what is a fucking pikey doing defending the EU, when the UK had to bail you c u n t s out when it dug itself into a hole?

    Have the pikies paid that back yet by the way?

    Of course when the EU were handing out the cash to you scrounging fuckers you loved it, didn't you?

    Always have your hands in other peoples' pockets.

    Project future? You do realise there is no plan, there never was a plan. It's all being played out on a wing and a prayer.

    Please don't tell me you are fool enough to think there was a plan.

    Very amusing, monkey boy.

    I suppose you are too dimwitted to remember when Britain went cap-in-hand to the IMF to bail it out in 1976 from the consequences of poor Tory management of the post-war economy but that's all in the past now, err, isn't it...............or maybe not looking at Engerlandia's latest debt to GDP ratio.

    So, my dear intellectual pygmy, let's see if your enfeebled brain can calculate which state is the more indebted by end year 2020.

    UK DEBT TO GDP RATIO = 107%

    Republic of Ireland DEBT TO GDP RATIO = 62%


    You Brexit trash are truly quite the dumbest group one has probably ever encountered, certainly more than the stupidest Alabaman redneck fuckwit.

    Har, o' Har.

    Well, it's nice to see this topic is still being explored with such intense passion to this day. When I left, this forum was kinda lax.

    If whataboutery is all you’ve got, you still haven’t read my original reasoning for leaving the EU.
    You only listen when you’re talking.

    Har, o' Har.

    Trump and Brexit were protest votes. Voting for either of them was not a rational policy based decision.

    And they were protesting the utterly lunatic monetary , fiscal and regulatory policies of the corporate coastal globalist elite cocksuckers. That make life a living hell with zero interest on savings , bailouts for the big banks but bankruptcy for everyone else. Out of control inflation , real estate prices , taxation and sellout globalist trade deals that kill the internal economy and then reduce everyone to selling over priced coffees to each other.

    You make it sound like the corporate elite haven't made any mistakes.

    For the UK , Brexit wasn't a solution to any of these problems. But it was a molotov cocktail to throw at the elites. Why not take a flyer on Brexit ? It wasn't going to get any better anyway.

    ..... only if you believe the obvious political bias that created, and continues to extrapolate “ protect fear” now that the projects future has been decided.

    ^my original reply to your post. Unadulterated. I’m sure your reply makes sense to you. Like Cyrille you only read stuff you think I have posted and conveniently ignore the rest, because it doesn’t fit your interpretation of events.

    I referred to the future of the project, (Brexit) having been decided. I mentioned “project fear”, as a tool used by remain and the media to persuade votes that they had made a mistake.
    My post never mentioned project future, which was your misinterpretation of my post. Not once did I refer to a plan, which is another idea introduced by you.

    If you insist on being deliberately stupid, and changing the context of a conversation, make sure you are bullet proof first. Your reply makes no sense otherwise, unless you have deliberate tunnel vision like Cyrille.
    This is why the UK needed to leave the EU. Previously sentient posters have been hoodwinked into believing their own bullshit.

    Next you should try to convince others that any EU vaccine delay is the fault of the UK or AstraZenica, or justify EU embassies in the UK.

    "Project's future", suggests Brexit is the project by context. A project, by definition, requires detailed planning.

    Nothing deliberately stupid in my post.

    Given that Bozo said from the outset, when he finally came off the fence and guessed that his PM chances would be better if he backed Brexit, that the UK would remain in the single market and customs union I rather think the incoherence of the Brexit movement was evident to all.

    Now that the disaster is unfolding with the re-erection of trade obstacles not seen for over four decades and never witnessed by 80% of the Brexit voters we ae witnessing the somewhat lame and frankly ridiculous retro-fitting of an economic doctrine, that a resurgent Britain will match the Singapore model, being peddled by silly Tory corporate shills as the brave new world.

    Fucking pitiful really if it were not so stupid but then, the Brexit English were never the brightest of the lumpen British and doubtless th knuckle draggers will lap it up.

    Makes sense and good job too, export to the cloggies and then they can sell them to the UK....er London market

    Northern Ireland eels can’t be sold in Britain after Brexit

    Eel fishermen in Northern Ireland can no longer sell their stock to buyers in Britain because of Brexit.

    The Lough Neagh fishermen's Co-operative says a "very significant" amount of its catch ends up as jellied eels in London's pie and mash shops.

    But post-Brexit rules have put a stop to that business, forcing fishermen to find new buyers just months ahead of the 2021 season.

    According to the BBC, Lough Neagh fishermen will have to find new markets for around a fifth of all eels caught.

    The rest goes to Europe, most of which is bought by businesses in the Netherlands.

    Businesses in NI are following many of the EU's trading rules as set out by the NI protocol, which was implemented to prevent a hard border on the island of Ireland.

    And the EU has banned the sale of eels with any country outside the bloc because they are an endagered species on the Continent.

    The protocol sets out that eel fishermen in NI are covered by those rules, meaning they can't sell to buyers across the Irish Sea in England.

    Pat Close of the Lough Neagh Fishermen's Co-operative said London provided "very significant trade".

    The flip side of the new rules is that NI will find it difficult to restock Lough Neagh.

    In years gone by, juvenile - or glass eels - would have been bought from Britain. But the new rules mean that is no longer possible either.

    "We always thought Northern Ireland was a bit of a home market", Peter Wood, who supplied Lough Neagh from his farm on the River Severn, told the BBC.

    "It was a handy place to have," he added. "We could ship glass eels from the River Severn to Lough Neagh in an hour-and-a-half, right on our door.

    "Of course, now we find with the NI Protocol, it could be in the middle of the world as far as we're concerned."

    The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs blamed the EU Commission for the changes.

    "...We continue to work closely with the sector to strengthen the case for trade to resume - and will reapply to the commission shortly," a spokesperson said.
