    Sigh. There's a lot of stuff to unpack in there, and frankly I can't be bothered anymore. Because this government (and Brexiteers in particular) are lying cunts. So I can pretty much guarantee that this list will consist of:

    1. Things they could have done while still in the EU.
    2. Things that might be benefits for Business owners and billionaires, but will be no use for ordinary people.
    3. Things that are completely irrelevant unless you're a racist.
    4. Things that just aren't benefits.
    5. Things that look good in theory, that they'll never actually do.

    Oh, and dribbles, they aren't calling these "benefits". They're calling them "opportunities". You can't point to a single one on that list and say "they've done that, and I can see that it has improved the lives of people without fucking over a bunch of other people"

    So more lies from dribbles. Who still can't point to a single Brexit benefit that people who aren't living in his fantasy world can see.

    If I were you, I'd run off now with my tail between my legs. Because if you come back I might just go back through the list out of spite to properly document what a pile of bullshit it is.

    Things I have seen since Brexit vote

    Value of £ dropping which for an importing nation is terrible
    Prices go up
    Wages still stagnant (which means in real terms falling)
    shelves emptying
    Barriers up between myself and family
    Racial and nationalistic abuse rising
    NHS still underfunded. Where's that £350million per week

    Still waiting on a benefit of brexit.

    With how the UK's goverment is, I highly doubt they will manage to make those opportunities in actual benefits. Its something like this...

    ..... Many years ago i was invited by a girl to meet in her studio. An opportunity to get her to know better *wink*.... but I never went there .. Thus my opportunity to know her better never was capitalized upon.

    Somewhat like how Brexit is.

    Unsurprising that there are so many brexit benefits/opportunities, it's impossible for you to unpick them all.

    I've, as requested, been supplying Brexit benefits for weeks if not months now and I guess it's just overwhelming, the latest Gov dump in Lord Frost's letter this week bullet points 61 in one day. If you want the most important of those in the round, while you all are distracted and having a giggle about Ethel now being able to buy bananas in lbs not grams you miss the bigger picture.

    The scales of UK politics sometimes, if rarely, swings to the left/remain/rejoin a little for a short brief period and these latest measures in those political circumstances ensure that in the lifetime of 1 or 2 parliaments it becomes extremely difficult if not impossible due to the divergence of UK standards from the EU to ever rejoin.

    The measures in the Lord Frost letter I linked cements Brexit in the UK for a century, it sinks any dreams and hopes of ever rejoining and in the most important benefit of all protects British heritage and safeguards our future. We will never rejoin the EU again.

    On behalf of my children and future grandchildren, thank you Boris.

    What you've posted hasn't been overwhelming. It's been one easily debunked pile of shit after another, and I've shot every one of them down in flames. Hell, you gloated once when it took me an hour or so, when in reality I'd gone off to have dinner and come back and handled it without breaking sweat.

    It's super easy for me. Barely an inconvenience.

    You can't point to benefits, because they aren't there. You can point to the UK asking for more extensions to carry on as close to "as you were" as possible, because the Brexiteers running this country are SO incompetent that they still aren't properly ready for the Brexit THEY demanded. You can point to firms struggling to find workers because the racists have chased off the foreign workers that were doing the jobs. You can point to declining product choice and shortages, partially because of Brexit. You can point to multiple businesses that are complaining about the damage Brexit has done. Even people that actually wanted Brexit.

    And we aren't even fully Brexited yet. It's still in progress, and it's going to get worse.

    You may be protected from these impacts for now (either because of your fortunate financial position or your detachment from reality) but even for you it won't last forever. Maybe the shock of reality finally breaking through might make you a better person, but I doubt it. When Brexit fails, you'll just blame the EU and brown people, like you always have.

    Do you remember when Boris said that voting for Brexit would lead to lower energy bills?

    Pepperidge Farm remembers.

    To be fair the gas price hikes are going to be all over Europe, not just the UK, because reserves are fairly low this year, compared to full before last winter ...

    Hey, I'm not setting these rules, dribbles is. He's the one linking literally every tiny change in the UK to Brexit, and claiming it as a benefit. If that's going to be how it works for the good things, then that's how it's going to work for the bad things too.

    Shoutout to @Breccia; I'm not here to make the rules, I'm just here to enforce them.

    Well we had the Mirror at one point but it seemed like it couldn't keep up with the sun

    Also another brexit win guys. CO2 Shortages. I hope you don't like fizzy drinks, fresh meat, drinks in the pubs among other necessities.

    With all due respect, your analogy sucks. Because the opportunity in your example is way too good.

    Brexit and the government is more like:
    You have that really good doctor, but you are annoyed that he tells you you should live healthier, because you are waaaay too unhealthy.
    Then you decide to look for a worse doctor, but at least he will not annoy you anymore. (Brexit)
    But in the end you never visit them but decide to rather drink another bottle of beer. (UK government)

    Reintroducing the Crown Stamp - We will remove the EU-derived prohibition on printing the Crown Stamp on pint glasses
    What a fucking joke lol, how daft do you have to be, to trade empty shelves for a stamp.

    No empty shelves that I have experienced. A sour supermarket remainer employee with his phone camera snapping away on a Sunday night when the shelves are restocked doesn't count either...

    The Crown Stamp has been an important part of British heritage since the 1600's that the EU destroyed at the stroke of a pen. You know when you buy a pint and see that stamp, you have the correct amount of substance and not a load of froth that the EU allows for its citizens. It is wonderful, a brexit benefit, that as each day passes and we distance ourselves from the EU Britain becomes just a little more British once again.

    You shouldn't be so flippant about the destruction of your national heritage by the EU, that is if you have any worth protecting to start with.

    Liar.

    You're either lying about what you're seeing, or lying about where you live. Either way, you're a liar.

    Because if you lived in this country that your posts endlessly pontificate about the wonder of, you'd know that we're facing all manner of problems. Shops are running short on choice AND volume. Any supermarket you go into is missing items that used to be easy to get hold of, and has empty shelves on a regular basis. Now maybe that's down to a shortage of goods, or maybe it's down to a shortage of people to deliver those goods. Or maybe it's down to a shortage of people to stock the shelves.

    Whichever of those options it is, we're blaming Brexit. Because if you can claim every good thing as a Brexit benefit, we can claim every bad thing as a Brexit downside.

    Fuel shortages? Brexit. Rubbish not being collected? Brexit. Fruit and vegetables rotting in the fields? Brexit. Shortages of workers in key industry? You better believe that's fucking Brexit.

    You caused this shit, now grow up and take responsibility for it. And stop lying, you pathetic man-child.

    No milk, water, soft drinks, and other every day items.

    Food shortages are going to be permanent because of Brexit.

    Lol your doom and gloom doesn't work Huehue, there are no shortages, are you trying to buy a loaf of bread or 500ml (soon to be a pint, another brexit benefit) of milk at Halfords perchance? Tried Tesco?

    Sure my local Waitrose might not always have that particular EU (formerly from the Netherlands) stroopwafel I used to enjoy now but that's hardly a catastrophe. No one is going to starve...

    If you cared about the Crown Stamp to ensure you got the correct amount of substance then Brexit was, yet again, completely unneeded because the Crown Stamp was replaced by the EU equivalent which did the exact same thing.

    I don't consider a stamp on a glass 'national heritage' but meh guess that's just me.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death
