    The Irish state pension for those with the qualifying maximum years of contributions is now around £12,000 whereas the British make do with jusyt over £9,000 and it seems the median annual salary for a full time worker in Ireland is around the £33,000 mark whereas £32,000 is the UK median.

    Poor Chas, the silly old duffer has problems in knowing what day of the week it might be never mind the year.

    It really is quite extraordinary that the dumb f*ck survives away from the safety net of the UK welfare state.

    Nothing you forecast has, or will ever come true. Even a global pandemic didn’t work in your favour. Best get used to losing everything. It’s your style of doing things in this century.

    so the rather grand idea of a European army is included in that budget? Without the UK forces, Mr Putin is still laughing apparently.
    Can anyone give an instance when the budget was successfully and independently audited?

    Umm, so, the currency didn't devalue by 20%, GDP growth hasn't contracted, businesses are not ceasing to trade, capital hasn't flown out to the EU and City trading hasn't lost out to the Continent?

    Annual Brexit losses are gauged to run at £60 billions annually and there is no prospect of global trade outside the EU compensating for those losses.

    Inflation is knocking at the door, equities are losing value, unemployment is ever increasing and debt is now running at a level not seen since WW2.

    Once the post Brexit Tory circus starts to lose box office appeal and the stupid lumpen voters realise they wre conned then the reckoning will come.

    When the Geordie peasants board the charter flights as gastarbeiters for Germany to dig kraut holes maybe they'll run Auf Wiedersehen Pet repeats again.

    Har, har.

    Statements after the fact, and your wildly misleading personal predictions, where numbers are included don’t count as “correct” forecasts.

    The obduracy of your stupidity comes as no surprise given it is a widely known characteristic of the Brexit cultist swallowing their catechism of delusion and fantasy that they are impervious to facts, truth and reason.

    Anything that portrayed Brexit in its true colours was dismissed by the fanatics as mere fear mongering and there it is.

    For hundreds of thousands the reality has upended their lives whether it:- impeded settlement in the UK in a manner practised over 48 years, handicapped businesses as they struggle to deal with barriers to trade erected by Brexit bureaucracy and misrepresented by Tory charlatans, and reduced the spending power of hundreds of thousands expat Brits dealing with their devalued currency.

    To the deluded Brexiter wallowing in the pit of their xenophobic bigotr,y celebrating their ignorance and prejudice on the high altar of parochial jingoism, nothing must intrude in the fantasy that Brexitania will ride into a golden age of munificence on the back of prancing unicorns amid those swards of sunny uplands.

    Brexitania has been diminished, it is now isolated from the zeitgeist of world affairs and is but an increasingly insignificant bystander lurching ever further into debt and inconsequence.

    And you Chas are its perfect ambassador, a warty old dinosaur bent double by years of obsequious servitude in the employ of your betters to whom touching your forelock was as natural as licking their boots, regurgitating a tired old rendition of " Rule Britannia" which is little more than a hymn to lost causes, the signature tune to a post colonial, near bankrupt, faded imperial power as toothless as it is impoverished and now led by a circus clown addicted to deceit as he is to licentious and reckless excess.

    Poor Chas, emerging from the gloom of his myopia shivers in uncomprehending senility as he towels himself dry with an ever shrinking union jack flag.

    Stupid is as stupid does, eh Chas?


    Oopps, I've just noticed, recent reports confirm that British financial institutions transfrred over £1.3 trillion in funds to the EU by the end of 2020.

    I do believe I mentioned the Brexit flight of capital many months ago, even years as I recall.

    Har, har.

    "Project Fear"???? I think not.

    Indeed, so much so that Italy's manufacturing base exceeds that of Brokendownbrexitbritain and even Spain is now about to exceed its production.

    Britain's current debt to GDP ratio, afflicted by the COVID response and reduction in economic activity, is 100.7%, whereas in th Euro area it is 97% but within the EU as a whole it is 89%.

    Poor 'Arry, it must be tough hacking his way through the thickets of his ignorance and stupidity with nothing but the blunted blade of his dulled intellect.

    Indeed, Brexitania is a cheap destination where the indigenous and their sweated labour subsist in an emerging world economic environment of low prices and low wages.

    Ireland is superior of course operating on a higher level of development more in tune with the more sophisticated western societies. Brexitania is renown for its cheapness and the opportunity to buy from its peasant classes, a bargain basement country flogging cheap tat, cheap booze and cheap thrills as the burgeoning criminal underclasses distribute more drugs more cheaply than practically anywhere else.

    Well spotted, Wankey, Britain is a coon state getting as cheap as, say, SE Asia was in the early Noughties.

    Har, har.

    The average Italian salary is 20% lower than the British one and they pay 30% more for a loaf of bread.

    Which of course was the meaningful point you waffled around.

    Yes, wanky's little table supported your points nicely.

    The UK's potato prices will soon be hugely undercutting those of Irish growers unless a tariff is slapped on them, though.

    Too many potatoes, whinge whinge whinge

    You missed the bit about the lower standard of living because slightly higher incomes don't meet much higher costs.

    Local Purchasing Power in Ireland is 8.74% lower than in United Kingdom

    Look on the bright side, there won't be a potato famine in Ireland again

    More sour grapes from the remoaners, while we live it up and prosperity continues to grow.

    You really have lost the plot copy old codger. Not satisfied with dreaming up ever wilder and frankly, unbelievable fantasy about the wonders of the EU, you have now imagined me as some crusty old bugger, in tune with the last century.
    The least you could do is to try and make one of those fantasies sound vaguely believable.
    With hindsight, it’s now clear that the home office made a wise decision, to reject your application for residence.

    What was the bets with the currency anyway ? The Euro has rallied hard against the USD.

    Which makes 1 Pound sterling equal to 1.16 Euro now.

    Well, that's how you portray yourself in your posts old boy...

    ...and you conveniently forget that the BoE pumped £70bn into the UK economy immediately after the referendum to stop the forecasts coming true...that's almost a decade of net EU contributions just to keep the Brexit lie alive..

    Meanwhile, that promise of: "no jobs will be lost due to Brexit" is looking a tad empty...

    Jobs being lost at the moment are down to Covid.

    Having said that unemployment statistics are still pretty low compared to the financial crisis of 2008 and much lower than 1989.

    Classic rant!

    That's living alright.



    I'm sure the Poles and Pikeys will be first in the queue to shovel cement and dig ditches.

    The British will be mostly prospering working remotely from the comfort of their homes
