Re: The Will of the People

No Maud my problem is stereotyping people who believe Brexit and you prove my stereotype of teachers from my school days with your manner only you can be right. That's uncalled for. We can dispute the reasoning used, but to not do so, and rather simply say someone is wrong *because they are*, which...

Re: The Will of the People

scooby, why are you still a member of this forum? You used to live here on Crete, you've sold up & moved back to the UK, What interest do you have in this forum anymore, other than to argue with people over Brexit? I could be wrong, but I would say it's a matter of treating people as people and...

Re: The Will of the People

I wonder if he actually understands that the Queen is a constitutional monarch and has no executive powers? If Hitler had won the second world war you could say, "It all worked out" but I am not sure the outcome would have been wonderful. You could say the same about Brexit. There will be...

Re: The Will of the People

The BBC are quoting Trump;

https://www.bbc.com/news/topics/cwlw3xz0lvvt/brexit

President Donald Trump says "at some point something will happen" on Brexit and "it will all work out".

Re: The Will of the People

Just seen this quoted on the BBC; "Mr Johnson suggested the solution to the current deadlock would be to replace the Irish backstop - the controversial insurance policy designed to maintain an open border - with "alternative arrangements". " Sweet Jesus on a fucking stick. It's l...

Re: The Will of the People

...The Cons now have a problem - leadership election, and the people voting in it are all hard-Brexit (Cons party membership)... I don't think that's quite the situation? I think the majority of the parliamentary Conservative party, i.e. the MPs, are against a hard Brexit and anti-Boris. The majori...

Re: The Will of the People

Most likely outcome? Difficult to predict, but i’d guess that a new PM who is relaxed about a No Deal may not have a majority in the House of Commons, in which case there’ll be an election in the next six months - and that is likely to lead to another hung parliament and more shouting...... There w...

Re: The Will of the People

I agree toebs that it would make working a little more difficult but very far from insurmountable, people work and live and move about throughout the world. You don’t need to be part of the EU to do these things. I may be wrong, but I'm not sure you have understood fully. I work as a contractor, no...

Note I do not have, and never will look for, permanent residency. I move around a lot, living and working in new places.

Re: The Will of the People

In what way will it profoundly affect your life? Just interested. I will no longer be able to work and live in the EU. Why not? I will be restricted to the UK. Why will you? I'm very surprised to see these questions. So - right now, as an EU citizen, I can live and work anywhere in the EU. When the...

Re: The Will of the People

In what way will it profoundly affect your life? Just interested. I will no longer be able to work and live in the EU. I will be restricted to the UK. I've not lived there for ten years, and I have no wish *whatsoever* to do so. The job market there is a fraction of that in the EU, and the UK will ...

Re: The Will of the People

The Conservative Party now holds an election campaign. The new PM will be voted in by the paid-up members of the Conservative Party, about 120,000 overwhelmingly pro-Brexit individuals. Consequently, every candidate is resolutely emphasizing their pro-Brexit credentials : "no Brexit is more dam...
