2019-01-17 13:27
those people are morons. people have to take responsibility for their actions. simple. they can have change their minds the next time we have a referendum on EU membership, after we've seen through the mandate given by this one. hopefully then they will be less indecisive. we don't run referendums just to satisfy fickle people. people know from the outset that your decision is final. so it is not a valid reason. they just have to like it or lump it.

Choosing to confide in politics has nothing to do with education at all...

I do my best to be an upstanding citizen and Samaritan, I don't need to care for politics in the slightest. That is entirely your choice, not mine. Have a good day.

2019-01-16 18:17

2019-01-16 18:27
It's called negotiation
2019-01-16 18:28
No it's not. The EU can't offer anything that would compromise the cu or sm. Both of those are worth many more times the value of the UK.

Losing 50% of exports as a result of a hard Brexit certainly compromises the EU in every sense of the word, no?
2019-01-17 13:29
Does not compromise the SM or CU, which as I said have a far greater value than the UK. Lower trade will hit the EU, but overall not a massive hit.

Potentially up to a 50% decrease should we hard exit, pretty massive...
2019-01-17 13:44
50% decrease of the trade they do with the UK, but we only make up about 14% of their trade. So dropping to 7% is bad, but nothing they cannot deal with. Also since they have made new trade deals with other countries very recently, its gonna help with that hit.

 | 
United Kingdom INGEMARSSON_ 
So the government needs to pubically declare trade deals for it to be considered as such?
2019-01-17 14:38
We are legally not allowed to until we leave the CU. The CU is the combination of certain countries in order to gain an advantage for trade deals. So individually anyone in the CU cannot make a trade deal, only the collective can. You need to leave the CU first in order to make the trade deal.

It doesn’t prevent approving transitioning trade deal agreements. And you think that everyone will sit on their hands and hold their lips until then when it comes to making new deals? Come on... don’t be naive.
2019-01-17 15:21
Well I think you are very confused. The transition period exists for us to create trade deals if we leave the CU during it. Some MP's have said other countries have suggested we can keep the same trade deal as we had with the EU, but nothing is official.
2019-01-17 15:28

 | 
United Kingdom INGEMARSSON_ 
Not confused at all. Absolutely nothing stopping new trade deals outside the EU. Again, anything inside and within the CU - you think there are no agreements at diplomatic level already? Come off it. Let’s not argue over the semantics of it being signed off versus it being agreed in principle.
2019-01-17 15:35
You would need to be very ignorant if you think there have been trade deals made before the we leave the EU.

2019-01-17 13:36
I'd take that deal, fish and chips would get boring after a straight 2 years and crumpets with butter are nut worthy
2019-01-17 14:16
That's the thing though, the butter won't be included :( It's a pretty bad example, i know. A second referendum would be the best course of action in my opinion, but split it into choices between remain or leave, and have people who voted for leave choose between a deal or no deal. Let's say it'll have the same results (48% remain and 52% leave) the UK should leave the EU. Of those 17 million (taking the first ref. as an example) 45% vote for a deal, 38% vote for a no deal (hard brexit) and the remaining 17% didn't pick anything, the government should try to aim for a deal. It'll probably be a mess, but at this point it would seem like the best thing to do.
2019-01-17 15:50
If it is like that then it should be a preferential voting system ranking your favourite in order. e.g: no deal - 1 may's deal - 2 remain - 3 This way it wouldn't split the leave vote
2019-01-17 16:59
You're right, it would solve a lot of hassle surrounding it, while still taking the different options into consideration.

That’s why you should have a broad reading spectrum. The BBC hasn’t made me believe anything. You’re basing your position off of anectdotal evidence with a small sample size. I have experienced the reverse, which contradicts the basis of your argument. So now what.
2019-01-17 14:38
Now what? Since you can't have a pretty clear consensus between each other, you have to keep the people's choice of last referendum. Imo, if you want to revote but still respect the democracy, the only vote you can ask for is : >this deal >hard brexit. pick one

United Kingdom INGEMARSSON_ 
I’m not debating whether the referedums result should be upheld, just stating that the general sentiment towards leaving seems to have changed since, as someone asked what a previous post meant... What’s stopping a second referendum (to leave or remain) which requires a significant majority for the initial decision to be reversed (at least 20% majority to remain for example). People cry about democracy and the initial vote should stand. People change their minds, we’re talking a significant period of time passing since the first vote. Vote again, pre determine majority required to change the decision. Inb4 crying at me - I want to leave.
2019-01-17 15:31
2 years is not significant enough. France is a perfect exemple : people said no to EU constitution in 2005, in 2007 Parliament started a new vote to reverse that decision. Ever since a lot of french people lost faith in democracy, abstention is sky rocketing, people are making violent protest instead of voting, politics get molested, etc.. for your sake I hope your representative will not make that mistake.
2019-01-17 15:35
#101
 | 
United Kingdom INGEMARSSON_ 
To my understanding, the 2005 vote was ignored in 2007, there wasn’t a revote in 2007. Thus it’s not a comparable situation.
2019-01-17 15:43
Indeed it wasn't a new referendum but a parliamentary vote. So indeed it is a bit different. Neverless I'm not as optimistic as you are, and I do believe the result of a new vote will be the same as it happened in France : the start of a cancer of the democracy. For a simple reason : this new vote will be decided by the parliament ("they don't respect our vote") and after a massive (more than 2 years old) campaign of fear. True or not and whatever the result, it will be perceived as a treason of the democracy by the media. So far english is kind of preserved from massive vote for populists compared to other EU country. I'm afraid a new referendum will change it deeply.
2019-01-17 15:49
#106
 | 
United Kingdom INGEMARSSON_ 
Hence why I was suggesting a requiremen of a significant majority should there be a second vote. It’s not been a two year campaign of fear - that same logic could be applied prior to the vote. Either way, again, the general consensus amongst the public is that they were not informed enough prior to the first vote. So if anything, it’s contrary to what you’re saying.

Well right now there is a negotiation period (down the drain thanks to yesterday's commons vote) and currently we are leaving on 29.03.19 but the deadline could extend or if there is a new deal with EU there could be a transition period for a few years
2019-01-16 15:04

2019-01-16 15:07
Pretty embarrassing.
2019-01-16 15:14
So the UK just spent 2 years on making a deal they just voted no to?? I dont even know why they want to leave EU.. They should do what Denmark did in 1992 when we voted no to EU.
2019-01-16 15:22
its stupid. they made a deal that isn't even as good as what david cameron asked for before the referendum. ofc the UK will say no. what idiot would accept that vote? brexit in name only. the people who wrote it up are remainers tho. so they are trying to have their cake and eat it. leave the EU parliament, but still pay membership fees for access to single market. yet have to accept free movement still. there has been no movement on the issue so it's time to leave already.
2019-01-16 15:36
You cant have it both ways. The people of UK voted and they decided to leave EU. That means you loose ALL benefits the EU gives. And now UK is crying about they dont have a good enough deal?? Well.. You should not have voted yes to leave EU then. My point is, instead of leaving the EU, they should just negotiate a better deal with EU with whatever UK is unhappy about. But to this point no one can tell me why UK wants to leave EU.
2019-01-16 15:39
we're not crying about a good enough deal. we just want to leave NOW. it's the MPs who keep trying to keep things the same and drag things on for long to try to change the public's mind. LET. US. LEAVE. we want to leave cuz when we asked the EU to let us control immigration in 2015 they said there is no negotiation on free movement of labour, people, services & capital.

UK wants to leave the EU for a few reasons, losing money to remain an EU member when our own economy is struggling outside of London. Freedom of movement etc. is a problem, the government gives handouts and dole money to 'asylum seekers' that come to the UK and reject the opportunity to stay in other EU countries (only a problem in the first place because of our welfare state). We can't negotiate these points with the EU, we tried, hence why now we want to leave. The general public wants to just get it over with and think the best idea would be to negotiate deals with non-EU countries the UK has good relations with, like Canada, where previously we were unable to because of the restrictions the EU has on trade deals between an EU and a non-EU country. As for losing ALL of the EU benefits, then the EU should lose ALL of the benefits of having the UK in it, like the 39 Billion pounds the EU claims we owe. The EU is being so anal because those running it know if the UK gets a good deal other countries like Italy and Hungary will soon leave, it will give the EU a terrible image.
2019-01-17 13:48
Hungary will not leave at all. Orban is member of the ruling party of EU (PPE) and don't show any sign of rebellion (respect the voting order totally). All his gesture anti-EU are just for electoral purpose, Hungary is too dependent of EU money and EU companies jobs. Same goes for Italy in short term, their national debt is too high, they need to rely on EU to be able to finance themselves. So til they are in a deficit situation, they won't leave (unless they are not afraid of bankruptcy, but according to how they moderated their last budget claims it seems they are not).

One of the parties in the coalition of Italy is heavily against the EU and actually used leaving the EU in their manifesto (since then, 5 Star has calmed down on that because of the liberal party they are in a coalition with). Italian citizens want to leave on a larger scale than one would expect. If Orban is using anti-EU gestures for only electoral purposes, that in itself speaks volumes about how Hungarians don't want to be in the EU any longer, of course Hungary is very dependent on EU money, but in a very seemingly exploitative way (no fault of the EU, just abuse of freedom of movement). Hungarians leave their country to make money elsewhere, in that sense they are exploited for cheaper labour. The EU does give Hungary an amount of money, but not nearly enough to actually solve the country's problems.
2019-01-18 06:42
I agree with you, citizens are more anti EU than their rulers, it stands for UK, France, Austria, Poland, Danemark, etc.. as well. But citizen wishes doesn't matter until they elect representatives that share their will, which is not the case.

“They are delusional if they think May could have negociate a better deal, EU have no interest to give anything to an economical rival“ No interest in giving anything to an economical rival? You realise how hard this could hit the EU too? Don’t be so narrow minded and one sided.

France and Germany will need UK as an ally not a rival when the EU starts to fail and Germany gets sick of propping up poorer countries.

I think that's a very narrow and arrogant way to think of the UK leaving the EU. The UK was a major economic power in the EU and has been on decent terms with France post Napoleon. It's not that we think we're better alone, we just think the EU is heading in the wrong direction, with the European Army and it almost turning into a federalist state.

So you chose to leave it instead of changing it.

Attempted to amend it a couple of years before Brexit was voted but no good changes were possible. The EU bureaucrats want as much control as possible.

But now situation is different since many anti EU parties rised all around EU.

Tried to in 2015, and got told to get fucked. Why try again and make ourselves look like whiny children. (Although May is making us look like that anyway with the """""attempted"""" negotiations) The EU wouldn't budge and the fact the EU is freely letting the UK leave with no signs of caring really shows how the EU is control-minded, rather than economically minded. Hence my claim it's turning into more of a federalist state than an economic region.
