See you're back to your usual self Mobers ;D

What we're talking about here is a few thousand jobs among millions in this country. Even with knock on effect added it's still small fry. It's not like back in the day where a large part of the country is reliant on one industry.

It's very likely that there are other reasons for the change such as electric cars, decline in car buying in China etc.

Its the longer term bigger economic goal from leaving the EU we should focus on. Not the minute by minute short term economic trends.

Anyway hopefully 12th May will put this one to bed, with a bit of luck the EU deal will get voted down again. The EU is still refusing to sort out the backstop buffoonery. I can't see that changing in six days in which case both the DUP & Brexiteers will vote against :)

Main thing is to then finally ditch the game play and move away from any embarrassing courting of the EU as has been going on. We are strong enough to go it alone and the constant pandering to the EU's over hyped single market economy just shows weakness on our part. We don't need to set our sights so low. Once we leave with no deal we'll show up the single market as not being all that and the foolishness of grovelling to the EU over this will be exposed.

We need to throw off the notions that we need to be tied to the single market in order for life to go on.

Martin Lewis of MoneySavingExpert.com fame held a Brexit poll in December 2018,to which 185,400 people responded,asking people to vote between a 2nd referendum or a no deal Brexit.

61% of them voted for a no deal Brexit.

Labour are now calling for a 2nd Referendum and it's significant they'd refuse to have No deal Brexit as an option..they're clearly  terrified of the result if that option was included.

Let's not give the people what they want eh ?

Self-serving,lying politicians running scared.

To our UK members have you had your passport renewed recently? According to consumer group Which? there are about 3.5 million people who risk not being allowed to enter countries in the Schengen zone, such as France, Spain, Italy, etc if their passport is close to expiring. From the article:

Quote
The rules state that visitors from non-EU countries must have at least six months left on their passport before its expiry date on the day of travel.

Until recently, UK citizens who renewed their passport before it expired could have up to nine months of the remaining validity added to their new travel document.

The government has warned that this time carried over will not count towards the six-month requirement if the UK leaves the European Union without a deal.

This would mean some people with up to 15 months left on their passport could be denied entry to many popular destinations on the continent, as they would lose any time carried over from their previous passport.

Which? noted that Friday will be three weeks before the UK is due to leave the EU on 29 March, which is the time it takes for passports to arrive after a standard renewal application.

Rory Boland, editor of Which? Travel magazine, said: "Millions of people could find their holiday plans disrupted or, worse yet, find themselves stranded at the departure gate and prevented from travelling altogether if they fail to renew their passport before the cut-off date.

"Anyone who thinks they might be affected should look to renew their passport today or if you already have travel plans in the near future, consider using the fast-track passport renewal service."

The Home Office said new rules will apply to UK tourists travelling to many European countries under a no-deal Brexit and "some people may need to renew their passport earlier than planned".

A spokesman said: "If your passport does not meet the new rules, you should apply for a new passport before travelling to the countries affected.

"You can use the government's online passport checker to check a passport for travel to Europe. We recommend that you renew your passport in good time ahead of your travel date."

Irrelevant ,as our 70 % remainer Parliament won't allow a no deal Brexit to happen.

IF we get a Brexit,it will be a Brexit in name only.

If matters were to start to swing towards remain or the dodgy EU deal Tory Brexiteers could call a motion of no confidence in their own government, this would freeze parliamentary business allowing No Brexit to occur.

I think Corbyn would go for it and "probably' get enough of his MP's to side with such a motion. It's all questionavle whether Tory Brexiteers would have the balls to take an action that would lead to a General Election but ensures  what they ultimately would want and the electorate voted for.

I think where we are with only about three weeks till a No Deal Brexit we would be best plumbing for that and jettison the unpopular and messy EU Deal. No Deal delivers a much better bargain for the UK in itself it enables us to start a fresh unconstricted by awkward EU agreements. Better to agree to anything bit by bit, one thing at a time with the EU rather than accept a load of obligations we just don't want.

Moby,

      Am I the only person who sees how you've conveniently ignored the fact that the vast majority of these remainer MP's campaigned on the basis that they would honour the result of the referendum.?

Once in power these self-serving,lying scumbags have gone back on their word of course.

It will be VERY interesting to see how The Brexit Party fares in the next General Election.

I finally saw a TV presentation that explained the situation regarding Northern Ireland and the so called Backstop plan when Brexit occurs.

Two alternatives:

1) There must be a customs border re-established between Northern Ireland and Ireland.

2) Border must remain open between Northern Ireland and Ireland; but customs border (backstop) must then be established between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.

If number two goes into effect; it will mean eventual re-unification of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Sadly the English comprehension of Moby is lacking. A democractic vote is something that challenges some.

Hopefully in some +\- three weeks everyone will see the sun rise over the British Isles.

ML,

I know you've been over to Ireland multiple times.   Do you really think there's a chance that Ireland and Northern Ireland could re-unify?

Actually I was always otherwise occupied, and wife's relative and his friends there are natives of Ukraine, Estonia and Lithuania, so I never learned much of the politics and issues.

I suppose the major hang up would be (1) UK shrinking and (2) the Protestants in N. Ireland would really be overwhelmed by the Catholics in a re-unification.

Seems really sad that, if in 21st century, the various parties of Christianity can't even live peacefully together in some areas of the world.

Not a serious though as the various sect followers of Islam who are still killing each other.

           BdHvA has sussed you out to a tee.

You singularly fail to grasp what people say to you..and try and twist your own deranged theories to everything..even a blatant fact..a troll in other words.

I may be wrong, but I think that religious differences were mostly a by-product of something else, i.e. Britain's take-over of Ireland, first a gradually then comprehensively in the early 1800s.
