    Are we really doing the whole "the mods are anti-Brexit" thing because you keep getting banned for being yet another burner that talks shit everywhere he goes?

    I mean, I just finished a 2 week ban the other day lol I'm certainly not in favour of Brexit.

    What did I tell you about assumption? lol

    My mum is English and my dad is English, with Irish roots.

    So much for that theory, eh?

    Labour are finished thanks to Corbyn, apart from under Blair they haven't won a general election in almost 50 years. As I think Peter Mandelson once said about their GE record:- Lost, Lost, Lost, Lost, Blair, Blair, Blair, Lost, Lost, Lost, Lost...

    Have I shown myself to be "anti-UK" because I can't say I feel that way. I'd much rather the UK was going to do well over the next x amount of years.

    You're the only one I've seen try to push this.

    Lol. I wonder which of you are actually UK citizens, tbh. Heavy doubt on at least 2 of you.

    Food from the UK or EU cannot now easily get to Ireland anymore, another famine anyone? Good job out Boris is minded to consider that option which will also look after and protect Northern Ireland.

    Boris considers 'nuclear option' as anger with hated EU deal boils over

    What can the EU do for the South? Not much but back down, they need us more than we need them unless prepared to see their citizens starve. Time to put the EU back in their box.
    Still waiting on that list of Brexit benefits dribbles. Tick tock.

    I see Lord Frost has given up on providing them himself (having made a giant ass of himself in the Lords listing "Brexit benefits" that actually weren't). He's now hiring people to identify opportunities and benefits that Brexit presents.

    Yes, the people that brought you Brexit don't know how to make anything out of it. So we're going to be wasting more of our money paying people to search for something that doesn't exist.

    Any comment on the Ukraine fiasco, by the way? Signing up to a trade deal that locks us into EU rules by accident and not realising for six months. Brexiteers really are clueless, aren't they?

    1. Not having to participate and contribute to, a total of €2.018 trillion in current prices, EU Brexit/Covid recovery scheme.

    There's one Brexit benefit for you to chew over off the top of my head.

    So the UK will not get covid recovery money, unless it pays for its own (which would negate the point you're trying to make).
    I doubt this is a benefit, but heh, we already established you don't care about the people

    So to prove that was a benefit you'd need to a) work out how much of that we'd have been contributing if we'd stayed in, b) work out how much of the fund would have come our way, to produce a net figure and c) calculate how much we're going to need to invest in our own country to recover. If a - b > c, then yes it could be seen as a benefit, IF (and only if) it doesn't outweigh the additional economic damage of Brexit.

    But you haven't done any of this. You've just decided "EU bad, Brexit good" and decided based on "feelings" that you are better out. Which is all you've ever done, because facts don't support your position.

    Got any more? Because I was under the impression that Brexit was a never-ending list of benefits and you've managed one, that you haven't actually costed to work out if it really is a benefit. Lord Frost can't do it, you can't do it. Seems like there isn't a single Brexiteer that can do it. Even Cummings has turned around and said anyone that thinks that Brexit is a sucess is an idiot (I'm paraphrasing, he may have used slightly different words).

    Must do better dribbles.

    Do better, not good enough? Another then.

    2.“Brexit gives us the competitive advantage not only within the United Kingdom but outside the United Kingdom also.”

    Who said that? Ashwani Gupta, Nissan’s chief operating officer speaking on behalf of a plethora of UK based businesses. Disagree? Think he is wrong? Chew over that one then. (There's many many more, this could go on for days)

    There's that weird impotent whining noise around this thread again? Anyone else notice it? Like uncut, dirty fingernails sliding down a sweat-stained blackboard. Can't figure out what's causing it. Best report it to the mods, in case they can work out where it's coming from.

    Do you think its a good idea to chuck insults at people that you don't agree with.

    Why is it an insult?

    Inquiring if someone is a Corbyn support vs calling people clowns, is an insult now.

    You heard it here first.

    That "benefit" will vanish if the UK does WHAT YOU'VE TOLD THEM TO DO and unilaterally dumps the NI part of the Brexit deal. That article specifically spells out that Nissan said that a no-deal Brexit would cause their advantage to vanish. Oh, and that deal with Nissan cost us literally 10s of millions to make happen. We had to BRIBE that company, with tax-payers money, to stay.

    So us sending money to the EU to keep our companies going = bad, according to you. But giving money to companies directly = good? That's the way to go in your mind? Take the £350m a week and put it in the pockets of companies so they don't leave?

    You sure do have an odd idea of what constitutes a benefit.

    Feel free to come up with them one at a time. I'm happy to debunk them the same way, rather than doing it in one big hit.

    Do keep up.

    3. Massive UK investment by numerous EU companies in the UK that they didn't need to do pre-Brexit as they could just do it from the EU. Example of one from Germany announced a couple of days ago.

    Gladly. You asking others to be civil is laughable. You haven't showed the slightest bit of good faith on this thread.
