Quote from: döm on August 20, 2019, 11:06:11 amSo the UK is happy to have no border between itself and the EU? I thought the UK wanted control over its borders? It wanted to end freedom of movement didn't it? If there's no border between the North and the Republic, a flight by anyone from anywhere in the EU into Dublin will effectively mean they have free access to anywhere in the UKIf the UK enters into a trade deal with another country which allows for food to be imported of a lower or different standard (chlorinated Chicken or GM food for example) then the EU will have no choice but to impose a border to prevent such food freely passing into the EU. The only way to prevent this is for the UK and the EU to stay aligned in terms of standards. Is the UK prepared to do this when it will scupper any chance of a trade deal with the US?
Quote from: rufus the dawg on August 23, 2019, 00:25:39 amOk. You are now saying you don't mind freedom of movement. And obviously we have to accept the EUs regulations to sell in to the EU.We will have to accept WTO and EU rules/regulations and now you don't free movement and how much is this costing the UK? And you still have not come up with 10 EU laws you don't like that the UK voted against.Can you now see how genuinely absurd the whole thing is.I wonder why HS2 might be cancelled?
Quote from: DavidL on August 23, 2019, 01:04:01 amSorry, I don't understand your point (I think there may be some words missing/incorrect)To be clear, free movement of people is not a good thing in my book. Immigration has to be controlled, otherwise it's impossible to manage public services, housing, infrastructure development etc. I mean, before you know it, you may end up with families living in shipping containers.
Quote from: döm on August 23, 2019, 07:54:00 amWell the UK is doing a singularly bad job at that. For one thing the UK had a right to impose controls on immigration from the newly accessed eastern countries of the EU when they joined. They decided not to bother.
Quote from: döm on August 23, 2019, 07:54:00 amFor another immigration is far higher from non EU countries than from the EU.
Quote from: rufus the dawg on August 22, 2019, 21:54:14 pm.....he wants to be closer though.I thought we voted to stay in the single market. That is what a CONservative MEP said would happen.Absolutely nobody is talking about threatening our place in the Single MarketDaniel Hannan MEPSo I am expecting to stay in the single market. That is the will of the people.
Quote from: zoony on August 23, 2019, 15:58:33 pmI don't know how many times I have to keep going back to it, but the referendum ballot paper said LEAVE or REMAIN, and no mention of anything else.
Quote from: DavidL on August 23, 2019, 18:25:32 pmI know someone that voted Remain because they were told there'd be "immediate and profound" negative economic consequences.
Quote from: döm on August 23, 2019, 19:04:45 pmWho knows? Maybe if the vote had gone for remain there would have been a large upturn in the economy. Brexit stopped that from happening - the net effect - immediate and profound negative economic consequences 😉
