Its not Hyperbole the cattle trucks were used in remarks made by a Brexiter in an article in the FT (all foreginers should be put on cattle trucks and sent to Dover that's what Brexit means)- all through these threads are innuendo to what should happen to people who oppose Brexit - that we are Remoners - we should be put on lists for being anti-patriotic - indeed Mr Soc Lib banned for making similar remarks

We have been warned by those who survived such human disasters to be on our guard for such a rerun of those events..in the aftermath of the vote itself people have been murdered, attacked and abused - it continues to this day

You might want to put your head in the sand - the economic fall out from leaving the single market will produce danagerous conditions both economically and socially - blame will be sort when it goes wrong - that blame no doubt will fall on "foreigners" and "remainers"

To be fair I was just trying to be helpful and explain the reference. I do not think Queen May is Pol Pot. I also believe it fairly unlikely that us remainers will be forced to dig our own graves on Blackheath.

Unfortunately I do believe there is every chance the troubles (aka war) in Northern Ireland will kick off again as a result of all this and this may lead to pretty nasty repercussions.

For those interested in facts quite a good piece on UK trade in FT today packed with data on what the UK exports and where

To view the link you have to Register or Login

Key paragraph for me

The UK is part of a global — but mostly European — supply chain

About 60 per cent of UK exports are intermediate and capital goods, or raw materials, not final consumer goods. As a study on the aerospace industry by the CBI, the employers’ organisation, puts it: “The UK’s focus on the supply of parts, systems and services — rather than assembly — means that demand for products is focused around the major manufacturers.”

This is reflected in the fact that the UK’s imports are predominantly the same products that it exports, as parts of the same product cross borders several times before being finally assembled.


The implications for these industries in these sectors of exiting the customs union is not good. Even a FTA with 0% tariff will lead to a shift in competitiveness due to the imposition of large amounts of red tape and other non-tariff barriers. There is no global substitute market, logistics cost mean the supply chain is largely regional, so all other things being equal UK exports will decline.

While not doing final assembly and focussing on producing high value supplies is a smart strategy for manufactures in the EU (margins are often higher and risks lower) it won’t work as well after Brexit. It follows the government will need to have a coherent industrial strategy to allow industry to rapidly adjust rapidly. Even a right wing government will need to look to use large amounts of public money to do this or the UK will further deindustrialise.

Divorce blamed on membership of the EU - whatever next

"And it boils down to national psychology. Anyone who has followed the history leading to Britain’s membership of the EU, starting with our abortive efforts to join the Common Market in the 1960s, knows that we joined out of weakness, not strength. Post-war Britain, beset by the loss of its empire and economic decline, had lost confidence in its ability to make its way in the world on its own. It looked across the Channel to the resurgent countries of the EEC, notably West Germany, France and Italy, and decided that it would be better off and safer if it hitched up to the European train".

Has there been any bad news today for those looking to copy and paste articles putting Britain down? The only thing of interest on the economy I can find today is one about car sales holding up at high levels and that surely is good news. There was something positive in the FT yesterday about a billion £ investment in Tilbury Docks but some worry over Moorside reactor. Late edit. The UK money supply figures for December were out today and are still at high levels for M3 and M4 but have edged back from December.

Who will the Daily Mail blame, when the older folks they've cowed into believing that immigration is the source of all ills, start shuffling off their mortal coils in cold hospital corridors because of an understaffed NHS?

They can't blame the EU anymore. They certainly won't blame the Tory Government.

I expect it will be because of poorly trained and illiterate Filipino nurses:

NHS AT BREAKING POINT
- May rallies to make NHS no.1 priority
- 45% of NHS staff born abroad
- Nurses don't speak English as 1st language

This is complete rubbish. How can they tell someone's age from an X on a voting slip? 'Obtained data' how the f*** did they do that!!!

I would love to see the explanation if that!

You needn't bother, I have been pointing this out for nearly a year but the exiters seem immune to facts.

Interesting. Always good to have ones suspicions confirmed by empirical evidence.
