    Poole and Brexit

    Your clearly not a “Unionist”. It would save a lot of tax, as would Scottish independence but the politicians would find something else to squander it on so you would be no better off!

    Poole and Brexit

    “Thirty per cent of our agricultural product is exported but we import much more from France. If they’re more difficult with us, then we’ll be more difficult for them.” this is the Poole MP. YOU WOULD THINK WE (UK) are self sufficient in food but we are not by a long way. We need them more than they need us. A proper Empire reaction send in the gun boats except ours has no aircraft and theirs has several squadrons. I don’t know where we dig these people up from but give them a Knighthood and they will be OK.

    That smarmy Hunt just amazes me it is just a bit serious at the moment and all he thinks of is a silly photo opp!

    Saw that some time ago and demographics will win in the end under the current rules. Will the DUP SEEK TO CHANGE THE RULES IF BREXIT HAPPENS? If they cannot then the troubles will return since the hard liners will not accept it. Will it then be the RoI’s problem?

    I certainly do not want U.K. to leave and voted remain and have strongly held to that since the referendum. I believed then and continue to do so that the fundamental change to our unwritten constitution should only apply if a 66.67% threshold is reached and that all citizens should be able to vote. Cameron has more to answer for than his abandonment of the result he should answer for his total ineptitude in setting up the referendum just to keep the tories in power.

    You forget Jeremy Hunt he never completely raises his head above the parapet but he will definitely be in the mix. I think all of your above comments apply to him sly, sneaky, back stabber a throughly nasty man. Just what the tories need at this stage.

    They all go to the golden triangle based on you guessed London.

    I am sure we are legally obliged to pay our debts up to 2020 and the EU COULD SUE IF THEY CHOOSE TO. How would India or America take to dealing with a country who doesn’t fulfill its obligations!

    We have already spent £500billion on Brexit since the referendum as reported in the weekend papers,good source.

    It is also worth noting that that the first degree is not usually enough for the “high skills” job.certainly one field I know about is Railway Engineering, not the senior technicians who fix things and keep the system rolling. The chartered Engineers who design, set out and supervise the new works such as HS2. U.K. does not produce many whereas India produces thousands a year but their railway system is many times bigger than ours. Equally Spain is at the cutting edge of high speed railways and has a surplus of graduate engineers. What we would be looking to recruit would be a graduate with about 7 years post graduate experience having become a chartered civil or railway engineer after about 5 years. The problem with the Blair legacy was that as those graduates finished the crisis hit and training and experience opportunities disappeard. The companies now find it cheaper to recruit from abroad and do not train in-house any more. This is the lost future that will be hard to recover.

    Brittany Ferries BETA site

    Did just as you requested and made my booking on the Beta site however another rat bit me in the bum. My credit card is renewed on 1st Jan and the booking was for July so you cannot secure the booking. We could pay the deposit but then the card would no longer be valid. Phoned BF they sorted it as usual but had to pay all upfront. Not much can be done about that I suppose but it is all the little gremlins that creep in.
