Quote from: Slim on November 10, 2016, 14:40:22 pmIt will (for example) allow us to reduce immigration from Eastern Europe dramatically, reducing strain on public services and safeguarding jobs for British workers
QuoteIt will allow us to overturn laws that aren't useful or wanted.
QuoteAnd we won't be forking out cash to prop up other countries' economies.[\quote]Sure about that? I'mean sure that will continue in one form or another
Quote from: döm on November 10, 2016, 23:35:21 pmHarming British industry in the process and forcing prices up for the British consumer presumably
Quote from: DavidL on November 11, 2016, 00:08:31 amBritish industry needs to be weaned of its addiction to cheap labour from some of the poorest countries in the EU. The consumer needs to be weaned off unrealistically cheap prices. This will probably reduce profits and cause price rises but the correction is necessary, if for no better reason than to prevent young skilled Eastern Europeans removing those skills from their own countries.
Quote from: döm on November 11, 2016, 07:27:20 amI find it very interesting that those whose lean to the right politically extol the virtues of the free market and insist that government interference is a serious impediment to the workings of the market.Until it comes to immigration. Then Government interventions are to be welcomed to curb the instincts of market economics.
Quote from: DavidL on November 11, 2016, 08:46:42 amThe free market in labour does not work when there are such large disparities between economies and living standards. Right, Left, Centre, that's just a fact.
Quote from: Slim on November 11, 2016, 09:03:57 amBut Dom, these issues are complicated and nuanced, not painted in simple black and white. We don't actually live in a free market, laissez faire economy. We pay taxes.
Quote from: döm on November 11, 2016, 09:51:17 amBut it is working in the single market - when migrants come to areas where wages are higher and opportunities greater, then it's working. That is the invisible hand in effect.
Quote from: DavidL on November 11, 2016, 10:57:38 amAnd what happens in those countries where wages are lower and opportunities less?
Quote from: Nick on November 11, 2016, 18:43:56 pmPre Brexit the UK was doing well economically and if i recall at 95% employment (which technically is 100% as 5% of the population are unemployable for one reason or another). So once the Brexshiteers have repatriated all the "immigrants" who is going to replace the reliable and hard working Poles/Lithuanians/Euros ? Perhaps now the benefit cap has been reduced by £6000 some new workers may become available, but "reliable and hard working"?
