Re: Brexit Plans are now being disclosed

We should keep shtum for a year and see if the guy that posted a graph that you don't understand (but said it was 'bad') or the exchange rate and the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 indexes are a better measure of the effect of Brexit... ;)
Hmmmm. the FTSE has closed down 1.46% today......

Re: Brexit Plans are now being disclosed

This 'guy' is an expert - which we both are not.... I claim not to be.... you seem to think otherwise of yourself.... certainly by your comments - I didn't say I didn't understand but it was bad.... Errrr.... Now I don't profess to fully understand this, but apparently this graph represents a reall...

Re: Brexit Plans are now being disclosed

Why do 'the right' never shout racist? Ooooh! Is the answer that they are not brainwashed by the BBC, Guardian, Independent (hahahahaha) and other MSM to believe that anybody that objects to mass immigration is a racist...? Is it that they perhaps understand the real meaning of the term 'racist' an...

Dominic- may I give you a bit of advice- you are getting more involved in the debate than is healthy for an administrator CL was great site until the admin got so involved they lost sight of primary purpose- I just hope it doesn't happen to you The 'debate' is so far, well behaved and Dominic has d...

Re: Brexit Plans are now being disclosed

Yes, I see your well made point... Yet the Pound is up and the FTSE 100 and the FTSE 250 are still at record highs... we're talking highest ever! Yes, it has jumped 1c against the Euro.... I would be VERY cautious about FTSE figures..... these are NOT foolproof measures of anything other than stock...

Re: Brexit Plans are now being disclosed

Granted that photo might be a bit misleading for British consumption, but I reckon a lot of Germans Austrians and Swedes could relate to it ? I can't see a lot of women and babies in that throng- it's obviously just a procession of 14 year old boys As for Obama- Farage has judged him purely on meri...

Re: Brexit Plans are now being disclosed

Now I don't profess to fully understand this, but apparently this graph represents a really bad view of the UK economy heading downwards. Initial trade booms on a falling pound are expected. But this shows a gap between UK bonds and Sterling, which should not exceed 5%. I can't read the detail of a...

Re: Brexit Plans are now being disclosed

I googled "racism" and checked the first five dictionary definitions. I then got the entry for "Nigel Farage" on Wikipedia- moderately long, but worth reading. Based on this research, I agree with Cyprusgrump that he did not say anything "racist" in the campaign, nor indeed is he a "racist", althou...

Re: Brexit Plans are now being disclosed

My outlaws voted Brexit and most, but not all, for reasons of immigrations. That doesn't make them racist, but some of them are! They admit it.... Equally, I know some remainers who are racist, but unfortunately, since Farage, the King of racists, led the campaign, its no wonder people associate rac...

Re: Brexit Plans are now being disclosed

Hopefully this is the start of the country pulling itself together and getting the best deal we can The EU does not want us to leave and indeed cannot afford to have us leave Once Cameron and Osborne failed with project fear it was pretty obvious along would come "project overturn the vote" or "pro...

Cyprus Talks end in Geneva with no agreement, and now Erdogan has his say

Erdogan has more or less stated that Turkey will always be involved in Cyprus and that land will not come to the GReek Cypriots without land going to the Turkish Cypriots. Chances of a settlement now, with Erdogan in power, looks futile From CyprusMail Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday...

Re: The lights are going out all over Europe

The best way to eliminate African poverty and help stop them flooding across the Med would be to have free trade deals with them surely ? The EU rakes in more from tariffs on African produce than those farmers get for growing it. Meanwhile the EU spends about 40% of it's budget subsidising European...

Re: The lights are going out all over Europe

Only the most desperate in what was the “remain” camp are still bleating on about the “£350 million a week”. At least, thank God, we will eventually be free. The most persistent and poisonous obfuscation from the “remain” camp, in my view, is the “confusion” between “Europe” and the corrupt “EU pro...

Re: The lights are going out all over Europe

I was always of the opinion that the vote to Leave was a vote to quit the single market . I also voted on the assumption Britain would then gain access to the single market , be it through a new agreement with the EU or WTO terms. If Britain is denied access to the single market that will be a blow...
