    But you get some form of food deliveries, yes? Do you thoroughly disinfect them before you take them into your home? Are you that certain that everyone involved in the delivery chain that gets items to your home is free from the virus? Do you never go out? Do you wear a hazmat suit and decontaminate before you get back?

    Basically, unless you've tested yourself in very recent past, you can't even be certain that you don't have it. Never mind anyone else unfortunate enough to share that house with you.

    Still, at least you are consistent about the whole "never let facts get in the way of an opinion".
    When challenging a Kzin, a simple scream of rage is sufficient. You scream and you leap.

    That's really fucking sad. You can't really offer hopes and prayers since the Americans ruined that sentiment but if that's how the fella felt then the world is a worse place without them in it.

    You don't seem to understand. The virus will take longer to reach you. But it will reach you. Probably at the worst possible moment when the NHS is at peak capacity. And living in a city means you are close to medical treatment. Good luck with getting an ambulance out in the arse end of nowhere when services are already over-stretched.

    Given that you are going to get the virus, you want to get in now while the NHS can still cope.

    It's really disgusting to see someone have the attitude that everyone in a city can just suffer and die and it somehow doesn't matter because city folk deserve it?

    No one is special just because they live out in the countryside.

    Dribs has been trolling or has had maggots in his brain since p.1 of this thread. Not sure which.

    lol this is probably the most ignorant shit you've ever posted. Apparently Brexiteers are such aswful people, not even the virus will have anything to do with them. Is grandfather also your dad? It would explain alot.

    Either way, you living in the middle of nowhere, explains why you have no idea what is going on in your country or the EU for that matter, you're a yokel, lmfao.

    I guess brexiteers arent even living in the UK

    @Slant it's being reported that the German Finance minister just commited suicide. You got some context for us or was helping people really that painful for him?
    The context is, he's probably an idiot or had other mental issues. Nobody gives a shit, really.

    A dose of healthy realism from brexiteers never hurt anyone. As opposed to some more ridiculosity from the EU exampled here.

    Italy has just been fined almost 10 million Euro and ongoing 80,000 Euro a day penalties for some minor EU rule transgression. Talk about kicking a people when they are down. What are the EU going to do with this money you may ask? Looks like it is going here...

    EU offers 450 mln euros to help Morocco counter coronavirus

    https://www.reuters.com/article/coro...-idUSL8N2BK71Y

    How long before others realise and how many more examples do people need that the EU never has the interests of their citizens at heart.

    And still the deluded wonder why the UK voted for Brexit.

    That ruling was 3 weeks ago.
    In 2008 Italy was asked to recover aid it had given illegally and it did not comply. In 2012 a court found the aids to be indeed illegal, set the amount at 15 millions and ordered italy to recover the amounts. Or at least what they could. It's now 2020 and Italy has done jack shit.
    So now the same court instead fined italy for only half the amount (7,5 millions) to factor in the financial crisis.
    So the timing is bad, but that's the court ruling after a 2 decades dispute.
    How did a 7,5 million fine turn into 450 millions?

    EU citizens need to stay home, and EU countries need masks and ventilators right now. Not cash.

    For fun I wanted to see if that actually was true.

    Except for London the hardest hit areas are according to https://www.centreforcities.org/coronavirus/
    Sheffield Leave 51%
    Birmingham Leave 50.4%
    Slough Leave 54.3%
    Derby 57.2%

    It's clear that it is more concentrated in big cities, but the note that one exception is Manchester Remain 60.4%

    I'm not from the UK/Europe but I do have a question after seeing my news feed today. What's the plan for commuters to and from "The Chunnel." I'm assuming the cross-country tax will be difficult to manage. Aside from that, do you need to go through customs if you decide to take this route?

    Delays.

    Long, long, long delays.

    The plan is to turn the M20 (motorway linking the Kent coast and London) into a lorry park - Operation Brock. Fuck knows why they've decided to call it Operation Brock. A person resembling a badger?

    Apparently, though, this won't have a devastating effect on trade. So, that's comforting.

    Is Dribbles really that insane/hateful that he thinks the virus does not hit the Brexit supporters?

    Maybe the person who comes up with the names likes wrestling and/or MMA and decided to name it after the kafabe destructive force that is Brock Lesnar?

    Commuters already need to present their passport or identity card when using the Eurostar and they cannot just get on and off whenever they please so I doubt much will change in that regard. As for tax that will depend on what is agreed between the UK and the EU.

    Eurostar laid out their serious concerns regarding Brexit shortly after the results of the EU referendum, bluntly stating: “There are no benefits or growth opportunity that they could identify from leaving the EU. Our fixed costs are already very high, and in many instances, the business case is marginal.”

    In their submission to the House of Lords, Eurostar expressed some practical concerns over the government’s insistence on leaving the customs union, stating: “New customs obligations would be very difficult to put in place in the restricted space available in stations.”

    Earlier this month, the cross-channel service was put into chaos following a setup by French trade unions as they put Brexit-style checks into place. Eurostar soon reported that delays and cancellations were to be expected from the Paris hub, where long queues began to form from 06:00.

    It was reported that custom officials were being particularly aggressive and intimidating to passengers to and from the London hub; trying to demonstrate the effects that Brexit would have with security checks being reinforced with absurdity. Five French trade unions were behind the protests, demanding more staff and better pay to be able to cope with, what they argue, to be a more difficult process after Brexit. Phillippe Bollengier from the CGT Union added: “There will be stronger controls. You have a demonstration of what is going to happen”. One of his colleagues, who was dealing with passengers waiting to travel from Paris to London said: “Brexit will be terrible for all of us. We simply do not have the manpower or resources to deal with the new demands.”

    dribbles will be here in a minute to explain why that means it's great that we are going to leave. That sort of nonsense on the French side is indicative of all that is wrong with the EU, and we won't have any such issues on our side because we've taken back control and that means less red tape, fewer foreign types and 200% more bully beef for everyone.

    I'm sure that any custom checks will be carried out by all the unicorns bred on the farms that will spring into existence just as soon as we leave.

    In the meantime talk in the EU is around a huge, joined up effort to rebuild the EU once this crisis is past. An effort that we will be left watching jealously from the sidelines. Still, I'm sure our "friends" in the US will be happy to do whatever it takes to help get us back on our feet, eh?

    Judging from his post patterns so far, it probably doesn't. Seems more like a situation where it doesn't matter if one tribe gets hurt, as long as the other gets hurt more.
