    Is the UK leaving the EU or not?

    I see court cases, I see votes in parliament. There's talk of a hard Brexit, a soft Brexit, Scotland says they're not allowing it...... Wasn't there a national referendum with a clear majority or did I miss something?

    Seems like a lot of smoke and mirrors to me with a lot of heel dragging thrown in for good measure.

    What a bunch of girls blouses....why all the performing?

    Why hasn't the EU just gone full steam ahead to a clean separation.

    Marvo you have missed something : it wouldn't generate lots of political opportunities and publicity, and pollies do like a fuss.

    the problem is, marvo, that whilst the majority op the electorate have voted to leave, some foreign mare has kicked up a fuss so that now all them useless politicians have to agree to abide by the vote of the people, which is what they promised to do before, but then you know that all politicians are liars and will milk it until they receive a pension that's 20 times what most of us earn in a lifetime.

    amongst all the benefits that will come to the UK is that GMES will be able to buy his bananas from anywhere in the world, and they can even have a bend radius that does not comply with EU directives. he might even then be able to hold on to them.

    More to the point the protectionist CAP Wil be history...... The French farmers will have to adapt to survive....

    The small issues of the German, French and Dutch elections are muddying the waters.....

    Worry he not about the French farmers,they will still be in the EU and have ready markets that will ensure their survival and prosperity
    Best we somehow concentrate on the survival of our own farming industry

    Example,in Wales (mainly because of the landscape) the farming industry is very reliant on sheep farming
    When we leave the EU they will have to compete against the freed trade EU countries and also New Zealand (who have a free trade agreement with the EU)
    The tariffs that will be applied to imported Welsh lamb may very well decimate our own farming industry because they will be unable to compete on a level playing field

    Multiply this example by the same in many other industries and the silly dream of freedom from the comfort of the EU will soon become a very sober reality to the silly choice that was made to leave

    Des, you had to compete with the upside downers before th traitors heath and wilson sold us out to the krauts. you can do it again, and also you'll be able to fish british waters without the spanish invaders to compete with.

    That was a fine reply to the complex Brexit debate
    Well done for that and am looking forward to some more of your in depth reasoning :confused:

    The problem looking forward Tel is like I stated
    The upsidedowners have a free trade agreement with the EU that will give them great advantage should Teresa August not negotiate a free trade agreement when Brexit is complete
    If there is anything less than free trade Rugby will not be the only thing with which they slaughter the Welsh :)

    It has obviously escaped you but there is no debate. The words you are looking for are MAJORITY, DECISION, and DEMOCRACY. You need to get used to the idea, just like that Scottish gargoyle, Tony war monger Blaire and the "not even a U.K. Citizen" Gena Miller, that we are leaving. Gone, departed, finished, divorced. Au revoire, auf wiedersien, goodbye, and good riddance. One day, all you remoaners will look back and say "thank god those Brexiteers had the sense to get us out of that debacle".

    Read the thread and you will find comment on the French farmers not having to be subsidised
    My replys were to do with agreements for when the UK leaves,they were met with astronomy enquiries on your part

    The whole thread was nothing to do with the actual vote that was for exit
    Printing capital letter words to portray your irritation,it is about a completely different subject
    Again it shows fine in depth reasoning yet again
