    General Discussions on Brexit

    I'm sure you right wortley when you say there are new opportunities to grab. What I don't understand is in what respect those "new opportunities" are better than the opportunities that we already have and seem so keen to cast aside on absolutely no evidence. A bird in the hand is, I would have thought, better than two in the bush especially if you don't even know which bush they're in or even if they're still there.

    I'm not quite sure that you base your belief on nick but I hope you're right nick.

    How do Y know - do you have a crystal ball that tells us all will be ok, fed up with leave voters trying to say all will be fine and dandy when they can see no further into the future than those of us who are truly worried. This is the leave vote through and through, any concerns are brushed aside as if they do not matter. They do. A lot, to those who could well be affected. I do not have any children or grandchildren, but I am seriously worried about my future, and how do leavers seem to have a crystal ball saying it will all be fine. How do you know. All our worries are dismissed and even joked about. Does my head in. Already had my worries about Poole joked about because Poole voted to leave anyway.. Not funny.

    Relax, sir. It won't be the end of their world and it won't even be disaster. My son has lived in Hong Kong for the last 25 years, would have preferred the British to remain, but he has stayed on and thrived there after we left. My other children would have preferred us to remain in the EU, but they will stay on here and thrive after we leave. Change happens. Think positive. Seize the opportunities. Best regards to you all.

    G4rth, I truly believe you, your children and your grandchildren will suffer not one bit because of brexit. We're a fantastic nation with a fantastic people and we'll make it work for our benefit. One caveat, we keep Mrs May away from any semblance of power.

    Having a go a the DUP while ignoring the Jean-Claude Junckers of this world is laughable... and his shenanigans have been investigated albeit by the three blind mice. This is one of a great many pieces in various languages from four years ago but was mainly ignored in the UK because life was fine and dandy. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jul/12/why-good-europeans-despair-jean-claude-juncker-commission Cue the excuses for this pillar of the EU community.

    Hands up, I'd dearly love to ignore it. Unfortunately, while able to mitigate some of the consequences I, my children and grandchildren will suffer with everybody else for the, I believe, reckless actions of others.

    Brexit effect on BF

    Well, perhaps if those who live in the areas of the other BF ports, or any ports come to think of it, read their local papers or see their pages online, shared what they see, then the subject would be diluted. I take an interest in my local media and any BF related news I share. What exactly is your problem with Poole being mentioned when we are discussing Brexit, Ed. You might find it worth joking about as a town that voted leave or it being mentioned on here, but it is no laughing matter to those who might well be affected. Why does it have to be a joke to you? At least I show interest in my local area and post information up here. Why does Poole have to be joked about AGAIN.

    In the same way you have chosen to ignore the referendum result perhaps? šŸ˜€ Ed.

    Somehow this thread seems to have become fixated on Poole (once again) but seeing as how the town overwhelmingly voted in favour of leaving the EU perhaps we can forgive the transgression this time. šŸ˜€ Ed.

    True, but I suspect you know exactly the point I was making and have chosen to ignore it as it is inconvenient. Of course you have a perfect right to do so.šŸ˜‰

    They added to the old bridge closure with roadworks nearby as well to add insult to injury. Went on and on. Attention has now shifted to the A338 spur road (again!) but only a matter of time before the old bridge is closed for whatever.

    Of course the government won't say it's a load of rubbish, just in case it's true. And they won't say it's true unless they bother looking too closely, and why would they? DUP party funding doesn't concern them. No other party will cry fowl as then their funding may also be scrutinised more closely. I'm no more interested in where the DUP gets its cash from than I am in where Sein Fein get theirs. It's irrelevant to what is happening today. One free of EU interference there might be the opportunity for the political system to be overhauled, and funding may well be more closely monitored as part of that, and the electorate may well decide for themselves who can no longer be trusted.

    I would have hoped that the vast majority of people would be against corruption whether in favour of Brexit or not. As you say it's an unsubstantiated story but that is only the case if it has been thoroughly investigated and found to be untrue. Failure to get to the bottom of stories such as this one do nothing but cause doubt as to the honesty of politicians of all parties and dare I say even those that support brexit.

    Does it not make you wonder why the goverment has not come out and say it is a load of rubbish?you may be right on your views about this story but where did the dup get the cash from?

    General Discussions on Brexit

    If nobody was really interested in the (unsubstantiated) story back in May 2017 I doubt they are now, except of course for those grasping at straws to find any possible way to overturn the referendum. If you believe something illegal has taken place then go to the police with your suspicions but, aside from the fact that Saudi affairs are currently in the headlines, this article has very little relevance to the current Brexit negotiations.

    Unfortunately, as is often the case, a criminal offence is only a criminal offence if it is also not inconvenient to those in power. If it is inconvenient it's not an offence. Ironically I suspect many people who looked at the wrap round thought that by voting for brexit they we're voting against "foreign" corruption little realising that corruption is alive and well firmly embedded in the UK.

    It makes you wonder what is going on with it all after reading this story.you would of thought it would of been fully investigated and if not WHY.things going on behind the scenes that people of the uk are NOT allowed to know about.

    I appreciate on foot it is further and not a particularly nice walk either but we don't know what, if any, the effect of the old bridge closure had on foot passengers. The one thing we can be certain of is that it would be unusual to say the least for foot passengers to also be carrying freight. Freight is the category that we know has reduced in the last year so in that regard as there is an alternative not much further away perhaps the bridge closure argument may not hold much water. That's not to say that the bridge closure was not a problem to a lot of people, it clearly was.

    (Yet) Another Red funnel crash

    If you check online you will find that the Raptors are well over twice as large as the Wight class and 50% longer! They carry 3 times as many passengers and cars too!

    (Yet) Another Red funnel crash

    It most certainly is! The ferries that replaced the C Class are indeed much larger. I would say that the C Class were around the same size as the Falcon, or as she was before she had those modifications. Maybe a bit smaller. I have travelled on the C class, Falcon and her sisters, and also the ships that replaced Caedmon, Cuthred and Cenred on the Lymington - Yarmouth route, so I am qualified to have that opinion. Have you seen the size of Wight Light, Wight Sun and Wight Sky, they tower over Yarmouth. The Cā€™s were a lot easier on the eye.

    Unless you are travelling by foot - or live on the Hamworthy side and do not drive. Then, if the old bridge is out of use it is a pain in thr Gluteus Maximus.
